I'm curious and have a simple question: who are the consumers of the a6500? Let me clarify: it seems that Sony really targeted the a6500 to sports shooters and perhaps promo videographers. If you own an a6500, why did you choose to purchase it over an A7 model? For the longest time, while continuing to save, I almost knew the A7RII was the best fit for what I wanted in a camera. Though, now I'm not so sure. I don't know if I could live with the relatively "slow" burst rate of the A7RII. This...

Hey Guys, I'm new to the forums and new into the Nikon world. I'm no professional shooter by any means but I have a question; I'm looking to do a clean trade from my A7 with tons of len's and accessories for either: D750 w/ 50mm 1.4f or D800 w/ 24-70 Lens Now I understand the D800 w/ that lens is a hell of a deal. But I want to know if the more up to date D750 is worth it over the D800. I mostly shoot Portrait here and there and I'm big into landscape as well as wanting to get into more night...

When selecting focus area - flexible spot, how do I then change the size of flexible spot? Can you switch between small, medium and large on the a99 mk2?  The joystick moves the flexible spot around.  when i press the the joystick, it moves the spot back to the centre.  The default spot is small.  I assume you must be able to change it to medium or large.  As the camera isn't able to focus on such a small spot easily.  I have searched for the answer, but am only able to find threads for a7 on...

I'll be in South Korea for almost 2 weeks doing all the touristy things, eating, shopping, visiting palaces and museums, Jeju island, climbing mountains etc. I'm not quite sure which lenses would be most versatile to take out of the following: Konica Hexanon AR 21mm F2.8 Konica Hexanon AR 28mm F3.5 Konica Hexanon AR 40mm F1.8 OR Konica Hexanon AR 50mm F1.4 OR SMC Takumar 50mm F1.4 (would prefer this if I take the Helios, same mount) Helios-40-2 85mm F1.5 (Yes I'm a Konica fangirl!) I'm a...

Seeing that the A7RII + MC-11 + Sigma 150-600 is far from ideal for birds in flight, wondering what others would do if you have this set up already.  Would you: A. Wait for a native FE 100-400mm from Sony, rumored to be coming soon. B. Buy a Sony a6500 and try the MC-11 + Sigma 150-600 combo on that. C. Wait for a faster A7 version, perhaps coming soon. D. Buy a Canon Full Frame and add your MC-11 + Sigma 150-600. Thanks.

got the a7rii last week.  I have obviously been a success story for Sony.  Don't need 3 cameras.  Mostly do landscape.  Suggestions on the best camera to keep as a backup.  Original  A7 or A6000.  Sold all my apsc lenses accept for kit, a while ago.

Hi! I have a NEX-6 and an a99v. Both are very good for most things. but low light high ISO is not one of those things. How is the D3 compared to modern mirrorless like a6300, a6500, a7 Mk2 etc in terms of AF speed and accuracy in low light and also noise levels at high ISO. I'm talking about shots at sunset or lower light levels. I will not climb mountains or walk around for the whole day with this kit so weight is not a high priority. Technical quality with 12MP will be plenty good enough...

I was looking to buy an Minolta to e mount adapter and noticed that that it didn't support any of the second generation a7 cameras. Why is this?
