Hi,  We just purchased this camera and the screen looks tilted. We are using the FE 28-70mm lens.  What can we do to fix, any suggestions? It's the first time using a Sony camera, so really at a loss for this one. Have not been able to find a similar issue on google search. Thank you in advance for any help:

Greetings everybody, I have recently got a few SEL2870 lenses, but one of them shows some strange electronic issues. It seems fine at first: focus and aperture work as they should. But after a few seconds, it looks as it looses the communication with the camera body - flashes the screen and shows F--. After a few seconds it comes back to normal. And it goes like that back and forth without any input. Here is a video: https://youtu.be/4wwqVA_NXQA What have I tried: Cleaned the contacts of the...

Hello all, I'll be flying to Seoul to stay for a week and see around. I'll be seeing the city and will stay at a temple for some days. I'm also planning to take my A7iii with me, but I wanted to ask about recommended lenses or focal lengths to be precise. I don't have many lenses. f2/28mm, f1.8/55mm and f3.5-5.6/28-70mm (kit) lens is my complete arsenal. I'm planning to take 28mm and 55mm primes for landscape, street and occasional portraits. I don't plan to take the kit lens with me since...

New to birding with a new A7 III, wondering what lenses people recommend for this purpose. I have the Sony 24-105 F4 and love it but it's too short. Specifically, I'm wondering if the 70-200 2.8 with the 1.4x or 2x teleconverter would be better or worse than the 100-400 4.5-5.6 on the long end for shooting birds in flight. I've heard the image quality is similar. Assuming that is true, I wonder if the 70-200 with teleconverter is still fast enough for the AF-C. Thanks.

Hi, I want some help on choosing the right option on buying lenses with the camera. I want to buy a Sony A7III and I have several lences to choose from. The body only sells for 2300EUR, the body with kit lens 28-70mm 3.5-5.6 sells for 2500EUR and Sony FE 85mm F1.8 is 620EUR. So, I wanted to ask if it is better to buy the camera with the kit lens or the body plus the prime lens. It is all within the price range I can afford, that is 3000EUR. I have some older lenses too, since I have the Sony...

So I would like to explore video on my A7Rii. Lately I have almost solely been using a Sigma 35mm with MC11 which I love, but the auto focus sound during video is shocking. The lens' I currently have on the short list are... 24-70 f2.8 GM (she will kill me if she see's the price for this one) 24-70 f4 Zeiss 28-70 f3.5-5.6 Without any Sony users I know in person I don't have a sounding board for this dilemma. The GM is eye wateringly expensive for video alone, but f2.8 and good IQ from a zoom...

I've been building up my portfolio shooting on my Sony A7S for wedding photography. I'm doing small weddings, 125 people or less, that have medium-to-small budgets. I'm a relatively new shooter, I'm not going to be like the folks winning best photographer in my city charging $7000 a shoot. So I'm a mid-range/newbie shooter and I need a mid-range/newbie kit. I'm at a place where I have a budget of $3000 to build out my kit a little bit and I need some assistance on what gear to go with. I'm...

Currently, I'm using nex5t with tamron 18-200mm superzoom and I've been quite satisfied with their results for a very long time. But recently, I've been exposed at lots of super sharp results from mighty A7 series, and now I'm looking for some improvement. I know superzooms are not suppose to do a super sharp job but I can't give up wide range zoom capability because I'm a believer of the one and the only camera. I always bring one superzoom camera when I'm going for a travel and never bring...
