I’m currently shooting with an A7RII, and Sony lenses (16-35/4.0, 24-70/2.8, 90M/2.8, 70-200/2.8) and looking to add another body to my kit. I want something that is specifically excellent for astrophotography (both still and time lapse), and still in the Sony Alpha family so I can benefit from my investment in glass. Additional areas of interest are general time lapse camera with faster frame write speeds in RAW than the A7RII, night video (very minimal), and having a "spare" body for the...

If you had to decide on 1 lens for the Sony A7 Mark II what would it be? "Preferably Sony"My A7 Mark II body is about to arrive end of next week, and I still haven't figured out what first lens I would like to buy...I've looked into the Sony 16-35mm, Sony 35mm,Sony 55mm and the kit lens 28-70mm. I will be traveling around New Zealand and Australia, and I would like to take a wide range of photos. Thanks!
Hi all :) I have never bought a tripod before so need your help. I have decided to take photography more seriously and so have decided to try few things like interiors photography & indoor birthday party shoot. I have been always more of a travel photographer with my A100 with 16-80Z but would like to be serious now with my passion with A7R2, Zony 55mm F1.8 and Zony 25mm F2.8 and Batis 18mm (order queued) I have to try new things from here for which I must have a tripod :) Your input is much...
I have an A7 and A6000.  I like having a backup camera, just in case, and they can share lenses.  i.e. the 35 f28 covers 52.5mm on the A6000, so I don't need a 50mm.   I really just do landscape.  While I am excited by the new 21 Loxia, 25 Batis, 15 Voigtlander etc, the 16-35 essentially covers all of these, plus you get 25-52mm if mounted on the A6000.  On a couple of review sites, the MTF sharpness at 35mm F8 is as good as my 35f28 prime (which I have found to be an excellent landscape...
I have been looking at getting the sel1635z to use on my a6000.  It's a good range for landscape and would seem to promise excellent side to side sharpness on the smaller APSC sensor.  Then why does it just rate so-so on the DXO sharpness scale compared to the A7R (even the sel1018 rates as somewhat sharper)   DXO sel1635 on the A6000  DXO sel1635 on the A7R
