I own a 7D which I already own for around 7 years now. I already have 2 lenses for my 7D, the 17-40 f/4L USM and the 50mm 1.8 STM. I am thinking of replacing it with a mirrorless because it is easier to carry around, i want to change to either a A7 or A7ii or the a6xxx. The main reason I want to change is that my 7D have a bad ISO performance and it is too big and heavy to be carried around for traveling. The question is, should I change? to which one? if yes then which lens should i buy...

Just curious if something like say the 55mm 1.8 would video AF worse than something that's come out more recently like the Batis or GMaster lenses. Or to another point, do these mirrorless lenses for the A7 line focus better the more you pay, or is it usually pretty similar across the board?  --http://www.flickr.com/photos/110960483@N04/

Hello, I currently have the Sony A7 with the 28-70, but the low light auto focus i find is poor - is the auto focus of the 55mm 1.8 much faster in low light situations? The majority of my photography is documenting family life and a lot of that is indoors at this time of year (although with recent weather in the UK, outside has been pretty dim too).  I am having difficulty choosing between the 55mm 1.8 or the Zeiss Loxia 50mm - if the auto focus is still not that hot i may just go for the...

I have recently bought a new Sony a7 II after using the the a7 for a while. However, I am after being stung by the uncompressed RAW files. It seems there is no difference, so am going to shot compressed going forward, however, I have about 200 shots with the uncompressed files and my Lightroom version 5 does not seem to support these files. One option is to upgrade to Lightroom 6. However, is there anyway to compresses these files after the fact so that my current LR5 will recognise these...

Hello, I used to use an Epson V600 flatbed for scanning 35mm negative film and slides. It worked ok but I struggled to keep the film strips flat and even in the holders, glass inserts didn't help, and the whole process of scanning  a 36 exp roll took a while. Have begun to look at various dslr-setups. The Nikon ES-1 is interesting but requires a holder for strips of film. Has anyone any advice? I have access to 50 and 100mm macro lenses with my Sony A7. Is there a certain way of copying 35mm...

Hi All, Happy Holidays! Does anyone own and use a Gariz Half Case for their Sony A7? http://www.lovecases.co.uk/gariz-xs-cha7bk-leather-half-case-for-sony-alpha-a7-a7r-black.html I had read somewhere that the fit around the grip is not great but would like to know someone else's take on it. I like the look of the product and think the metal bottom will offer great rigidity when attaching a tripod mount. All the best.

Hello  I'm a micro four third shooter and I'm interested in the Sony's Full Frame. I have no intention to sell my MFT gear and go full Sony A7! I'm just looking to add an A7 or the later model to my MFT collection.  There are some cheaper Sony lenses for the A7 series and I'm wondering how well they perform. Often I hear claims the 55mm 1.8 is the lens to buy instead of the cheaper 50mm and the 50mm doesn't do the Sony's sensor justice. Is this true?  I thought it would make sense for people...

Hi There I have recently started shooting with an A7 and Voigt 40mm f1.4. The lens seems to have a FL of something more than 40mm on the A7 though. Here is an unscientific example of what I mean. This is from a seated position with the buckle of the camera bag as the central point. I do not have a tripod handy. A7 Voigt 40mm f1.4 vs EM1 with Pana 20mm F1.7 prime.  I have noticed this quite a bit, the effect seems to be more obvious the closer the focus. --Berni29EM1, EM-10mkII, GM1/5 +...
