Hey guys! Long story short: do I need a new body or would the Sigma 35mm 1.4 work well with the Sony A58 and improve the quality of my images? Here's more info: So I own a Sony A58 that I bought back in 2013 when I was quite a noob and not that interested in photography. I simply used it for my fashion blog. However, this year I started taking photography seriously and I'm enjoying it a lot. I am just struggling with low light photography. I don't know if it's the lens or the body, but I do...
Taking my new A6000 to Silverstone this weekend for the 6hr world endurance championship race. Looking for suggestions of some settings to get me started. I've never shot fast moving subjects before and only had the camera for a couple of weeks (moved from an A58). I have the 2 lens kit so imagine I'll be using the 55-210 most of the time on Sunday. The weather is supposed to be reasonable so there should be good light I hope. I've only had the camera a couple of weeks but am used to most of...
Hi, Ive had my A58 for a year and a half now after finally switching from film and my Olympus OM-2S, and in the past 6 months started to get more serious about the hobby. Although Ive enjoyed the A58, I find myself getting more and more frustrated with the quality of images and (apparent) lack of ability to accurately focus. Ive done a few tests and it seems to regularly back focus with all of my lenses (Min. 50mm 1.7, SAL55300, SAL1855-2). I've read many of the forum posts on back focus and...

I have a Sony SLT A58 and am using the Sigma 17-450mm F2,8 EX HSM lens. When I apply the lens profile in Lightroom the image changes slightly according to the focal length that the shot has been shot in. When comparing this to the Jpeg version of the same shot no lens correction seems to be applied to the image. I assumed that when shooting in JPEGthe Sigma JPEG profile would be applied automatically. If this is correct then this would make the Lightroom profile incorrect. Does anyone know...
I have just purchased a Tamron x2 teleconverter to use with my Tamron 70-300mm lens on my Sony a58. I don't seem to be able to take pictures in 'auto' mode. I am not a very accomplished photographer and do rely heavily on auto settings at the moment. Is this not an option with a teleconverter or is there a way to fix the problem? Thanks
Does anyone know if it's possible to change the orange colour that is used for some text on the A58's EVF display?Most of the text is white, which is great, but when you change aperture or shutter speed (in A or S priority modes) the text turns orange. In overcast/shady/indoor locations this isn't a problem but when it's bright/sunny/high contrast I find that the orange colour is very hard to see and if you're trying to find a specific setting it's almost impossible to find it. I'm wondering...
Hi there, I'm looking to get a off camera flash sync cable for my Sony A58 to link with my Nissin Di622 Mk11. While not a newcomer to photography, off camera flash is definitely out of my expertise. Can anyone please suggest the correct kind of cable? Many thanks Linda

Hi, I have started learning photography and been experimenting on aperture and dof. The lens I am using is 18-55mm A mount lens, which has minimum f3.5 I found there is another prime lens 50mm one which has f1.8 but zoom in/ zoom out is not possible with that one since it's only 50mm. So is there any compatible lens for this one where it would have lesser fstop like atleast 2.0 and still have zoom in / zoom out ? Let me know if it's possible at least with other lenses with attaching an adapter.
