I have read all DPR reviews about the a57, a65 and a77Mk1. The a55 is also good but the a57 is better in everything so I don't consider it. GPS is nice but I have a separate logger. What strikes me is that all cameras get a gold reward but the reviewers seem most happy with the a57. 16MP is fine for me, I have both a99 and NEX-6 and really the difference is not that great. But the a57 get top remarks for low noise and fast AF. Also operation seems more snappy and the buffer is L-A-R-G-E and...

I have an aging Sony SLT-A55 which is dropping the occasional hint that it would really like to retire soon (clock backup battery no longer works & occasional ‘Camera error’ fault). I mainly take landscape photos (wide angle, lots of sky, wide dynamic range), nature photos (medium angle/macro) and wildlife photos (generally under the shade of trees at longer focal lengths).I have built up a range of lenses over the years: Tamron 18-270 travel zoom, Tamron 90mm macro, Sigma 10-20mm wide angle,...
I have several old Minolta MD lenses that I would like to use on my Sony DSLR cameras. I picked up a Minolta M-A 2x converter S for a good price for doing this. My question is this. What is my effective focal length when using the adapter on a Sony a55 and a Sony a850? For example. If I use a Minolta MD 135mm lens on these cameras, what is my effective focal length? a850 - 135mm x 2 = 270mm a55 - 135mm x 2 = 270mm plus the crop factor of 1.5 giving 405mmAm I correct in assuming the above is...
Hello. I may have to upgrade from my wonderful but oldish A55, which is playing up. I'll like to keep the 16-80 Zeiss lens so probably would not want a full framer at this time. I also like the compactness and lightness of the A55 and an on-board flash. I shoot 'everything' really. Any Sony recommendations from anyone? Thank you. PS are you still going well Canadian Club? I hope so old timer!
HI, This is my first post here, but have read some threads here for a little while I'm looking into getting a lens for wildlife and one for landscape photography.. Hopefully for under $1000 each if possible or decent ones at a reasonable price. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks, Jeanette
