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...
I have a studio flash system that can be triggered with a flash. Some cameras can set the flash manually. Every Nikon slr I have tried from the cheap old D40 can do this, Some Canons like the Canon 60D, but not the beginner ones, and my old Minolta 7Hi can also set the flash manually. I then typically set the flash to 1/32 or 1/64 or 1/124 so that it would trigger the studio flashes without lighting up the person. In the menu of these cameras you will find three options for flash: ADI, TTL...

This has been gradually getting worse, and not having a MFA on this body means it's now a affecting my hit rate to the point it's a problem. The lenses are DT16-50 2.8 and DT55-300. Both exhibit the same issue on the same body, less obvious so on my backup A58. I find it odd that my beercan doesn't have this issue on my A65. Am I running to the limits of the A65 with those lenses. Is the A65 focus or the lenses worn out somehow? Do those lenses need a tune up, or does my kit - a body upgrade?...
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...
