Has anyone had any combination of these lenses side by side to compare?  The A6300 has impressed me so much, I'm gonna reward it with a nice fast standard zoom. :)  Already have a Sigma 70-200mm F/2.8 II on an LA-EA3 that works perfectly on the A6300.  Just looking for a standard zoom that will be sharp enough for it wide open throughout the frame.  A smooth focus ring would be nice, as well.  Reviews out there are kind of mixed for all of them, but then there are people that swear by them,...

Hi Could someone tell me what it is to use a DT lens (Sony 16-50 f2.8, usually paired with A77) on a full frame camera? What's the effect? Did someone try this? What're your observations? Thanks. Cheers Mohan

Hi everyone, I'm about to buy my first good camera - a6000. Previously I had a simple cyber-shot. My main concern now is which lens should I choose for the beginning. My problem is that I've read on many forums, also here, that it's a good deal to take it with a kit lens since you pay very little for it and in case of the a6000 it's ok as a kit camera could be. But recently I've watched the review (made by Lav... on a popular video site, not sure if I can promote it here) where it was mostly...

My bigma arrived today, and I realise that it is never going to fit into my camera bag.  So I need a recommendation, please, for a bag that will take: My Sony A77ii with its 16-50/2.8 Sigma 10-20/3.5 A 15inch laptop Set of Formatt-Hitech 85mm filters and adapter rings and Sigma 50-500/4.5-6.3 apo os hsm Ideally your recommendation will also fit BA's current carry-on recommendation.  I should like to be able to attach a tripod (which travels in my checked luggage when I fly). Thanks in...

Actually i have the Tamron 17-50, and it works beautifuly, it's almost all the time on my A77. But in my country, the Sony 16-50 is selling for $500 new, and i can sell my tamron in $380; so for only $120 i can "Upgrade" to the Sony. I like the weather sealing and SSM of the Sony, also the 16mm vs 17mm it's welcome, because i use my tamron mostly for astro, landscapes and social photos (Here are my photos with the Tamron https://www.flickr.com/photos/biovipah/sets/72157642161320685/ )Do you...

Hi, I was wondering if any of the lucky A77II owners could confirm its compatibility with the Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens? Would the lens need any firmware upgrade or some other special treatment to work with the A77II? Will I be able to use the focus peaking feature? Also, I hope I should not expect any problems with my other lens, Sony DT 16-50mm F2.8 SSM, which I got a few months ago? (Well, they sell it together with the A77II, but maybe it's a newer revision?) Thanks for...

Hi, I'm going to use the SAL1650 for a while on my a58. I just did a quick try yesterday and noticed that if I turn the focus ring while the lens swith is still set to AF, there's no focus peaking, even if in the magnified view. I have to set it to manual to get the highlights, just like I would do with other lenses. Is there a way I can get immediate focus peaking whenever I turn the ring? Thanks in advance. --http://www.flickr.com/photos/romainpontida/

Hi guys! I wonder your opinion about using the relatively fast 16-50 f2.8 SSM Sony lens with the A77 camera for action sport photos. I know the camera have crop mode, 1,4x and 2,0. So according to this it can extend the lens zoom range from 50mm to 150mm with a resolution of 6MP at good, usable resolutions. I am an amateur photographer with the possibility to sell Rafting pictures for tourists in the summer time. This is the maximum budget i can spend on a camere for this purpose. My other...

Hi, I know, there have been numerous threads about A7 already, but hey they are the hot topic still today and this is a Sony gear forum so we cannot really cry about it either... I currently own A55 with couple of lenses but most importantly the DT16-50/f2.8. Then also a NEX-C3 with kit lens as well as a few MF Rokkors. I love both combos. I love the versatility of the A55 with the zoom lens for landscape, city sightseeing, indoor photography, etc. I also love the fast manual primes with the...
