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...
Hello Guys, I'm thinking about selling my 70D, bought September 2015 together with my Sigma 17-50 F2.8 for buying a used (top condition) Sony a7. What I don't like at the 70D is the large size in my opinion its very hard to take in anywhere you go. I would switch to the a7 because of the small body and the amazing low light capabilities and the high dynamic range of the sensor. I would use the following lenses on the a7. - Sony 28-70 Kit lens (For video shooting due to the OSS)- Canon 50mm...

Hey gang. Late to the game but finally upgrading to the A7 or A7R. If I buy the A7 should I buy it with the kit lens 28-70mm or is there a similarly priced lens that would be beneficial to buy. At the moment I am using only legacy Canon FD lenses on my NEX-5T. My go to lenses are the Canon 85mm 1.2L and 50mm 1.4. I will be doing mostly portraiture and product work but some landscapes as well. I'd say 60% of my shoots will be in controlled lighting environments. 40% will be walkabout...

Hi photographers, I'm buying the A7 II with the 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens. I will mainly use the camera to do portraits full body, half body and face-only, both in indoor and outdoor. At the beginning I thought this was an easy choice: everybody is incredibly happy with the 55mm, a stellar lens. But then I heard some popular photographers (ex. Tony Northrup), who almost always suggest the telephoto 70-200mm f/4 for portraits. Maybe the 70-200 f/4 is too tight for indoor, isn't it? Would you...

I recently purchased the Sony A7s and a Sony 28-70mm, but when I put on the lens, it won't autofocus, there's no f-stop reading and I get the message "Invalid because lens not attached. Attach lens correctly." It gives the same message for my manual lenses. I've Enabled Released w/o Lens, tried cleaning the contact points, gave it a firmware update and went through the manual to see what else it could be. ANY IDEAS? Much appreciated!
HI all, I am looking to buy the following soon in UK: 1. Sony A7ii camera body2. Sony Kit Lens FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.63. Sony Prime lens FE 55mm F1.8 I need your help to choose the retailer as Sony rates are quite high (Also found out that they have closed all the Sony centres in UK where I was planing to have a look at the camera and the lens) When I called to Sony to discuss this, they recommended John Lewis who are only selling A7 mark i currently and PC World-Currys again have higher price...
Dear DPReview Community, once again I request your aid. You've helped me pick a camera and lenses before, but indeciveness has reared its ugly head again. Over the past week, I've pored over articles, sample shots, videos, etc and I really can't make my mind. I've noticed that I tend to take more portrait shots (with a SEL 35, which I love) than other types, but I also want to continue my quest of travelling once a year to a far-off country. I've got a budget of about $800 for lenses. So it...
