Hi,I found some used ones at a really good price in my country. So I'm very interested in buying this lens.Sometimes I shoot RE with my a6000 + samyang 12mm f2.0 and I'm very satisfied with this kit.What I'm not satisfied with my a6000 are the skin tones... So I'm thinking of fully migrating to the a-mount. I was waiting for the a77iii but I might jump ship to the a77ii anyways... I've already have the a58 and some lenses...The question is... How sharp is this lens? I'm VERY satisfied with...
Hi! I have my a58 for quite some years and just now I've been into videos! I'm already aware of the f3.5 issue when on AF. But I wanted to set the speed when I'm on AF mode.When I'm on MF mode I can set everything, but when I'm on AF mode I can only set exposition and ISO. Then I'm able to keep it close to where I want. But I would prefer 100% to set speed the way I want on AF mode.Did anybody ever solved this? Thanks in advance! --Add a spoon of salt to your eyes and DONE, you won't need to...

Hi everyone, I just switched to shooting a Sony a58, and want to buy my first speedlight. I'm utterly baffled by which ones are compatible, and most online discussion predates the newer Yongnuo models that I am looking at. Basically, I plan to buy the Yongnuo YN560 IV, unless I can get a different model with TTL for not too much more money. Wireless triggering would also be nice. Does something like that exist? The MeiKe MK-320 TTL seems like it might work. How about the Yongnuo YN568? Thanks
Hello, I bought a m4/3 camera in an attempt to save weight (the E-M10 + 14-42EZ kit is half the size and half the weight of my Sony a58 + 16-50 kit). Of course, there’s no free lunch and the picture quality isn’t perfect, to the point that I find myself still taking the a58 on almost all trips. Part of it is the picture quality, part of it because the extra 2mm at the wide end can be quite useful.So, I feel my options are: The 12-40 f/2.8 or 12-35 f/2.8 zooms. My issue with that is at the...

Living in the North of Norway is amazing, having fresh air and northern lights just as you step outside your doorstep. But I need some help, I want to start photographing the northern lights. I have heard that the lens should have a aperture of 2.8, and a focal range of between 10-25mm. I have a budget on max 600 USD. Any suggestions on lenses i should buy to my Sony A58?
I am a hobbyist photographer. Currently I have a Sony A58 with 18-135 lens. This meets most of my needs and I also have a 75-300 lens for wildlife photography. I do only JPEGS , no RAW. Now, I need a lightweight camera like the Sony A6000. Is A6000 a good replacement choice ? Please also suggest a walk around mid zoom lens for A6000. Thanks in anticipation.

I'm contemplating a second body to my a99. Main reason is that I would like a cheap UWA for landscapes and the SAL1635z is a bit beyond what I'm willing to pay. I have enlightened myself by downloading and peeping on test images from the Imaging Resource comparometer. When I check at 100% I find that the a58 is not bettered (what I can see) by either of the a99, Nikon D3400, D5600 or Canon T6i. Of course the a99ii, A9 and later a7's are better but again, beyond my budget. What is the opinion...
