Hi everyone!  Ive been for a long time a passive user of dpreview. Now Ive decided to ask my first question. Actually two: I recently sold my Fujifilm XT2 + Samyang 12mm +  Trilogy 23/35/50 F2. Why? I'm not sure, I think after all my years trying different cameras alongside my creative development I've decided to give FF a shot.  Canon - Sony - Fujifilm all APSC Set ups. Now the Sony A7 came out and finally I can afford a system that will fit my needs. Without going any further. Which...

Are all the SONY A7 and A9 series using the same battery door? I have two types of grip for my A9 both required battery door removed and reinstalled on the accessory. Getting another battery door will be much more convenient. The prices on eBay varies based on models, very confusing for SONY stuff

The Zeiss ZE 85mm f1.4 and Zeiss ZE 50mm f1.5 planars, Canon mount, with no aperture ring, are notorious for their focus shift when stopped down past f4. I can use them in the Canon mount using live view and stopped down with aperture preview and then refocus just before shooting. to my surprise, I have found no way of doing that in the Sony body. Specifically, is there a way to use Aperture preview with Focus magnify? I'm completely new to Sony. Please help. Thanks in advance.

APS-C w/50mm f/1.4 or FF w/50mm f/1.8; I checked the DOF calculator, but I think the results aren't perfect because I think the FF should make for shallower DOF. I'm trying to get a new camera for achieving the Brenizer method; I know 50mm isn't necessarily the best, but I'm on a budget and am debating between a Nikon D7100 and Sony A7.  --https://www.flickr.com/photos/31391486@N04/

Hi everyone, Would you be so kind to let me know your personal opinion on the following 2 points ? 1. what is the average selling price I should sell my Panasonic GH4 body for these days (in great condition of course) ? 2. what is the Sony Alpha camera that is most widely accepted to be more video-oriented under the $2500 budget mark ? Thanks a lot for your feedbacks !

Hi I did read here and there about flashes for A7 RIII and found that Godox maybe is the best choice for money. So I am thinking about buying TT685S as beginning but I am confused between XProS and TT350S. I can buy TT350S and use it as Master to control the TT685s and also use it as fill flash. Does XProS has something more important that TT350S can't do? What do you think about that ?

Hey, I've used a friend's canon dslr for the last few months and now want to buy a camera. Budget - €1000 I'm into low-light photography/low light portraits with neon lights (enjoy bokeh) and street photography. SONY A7: Pros: larger sensor for low-light and bohek. Able to crop in more in post for street photography. Cons: Can't set minimum shutter speed in aperture priority(street). Expensive lenses and unsure about the eco system (although i heard sigma are releasing their art collection...

Hello, I have an old Minolta 5600 HSD flash from my Minolta Film (Dynax 7) camera days.  I have used it since with my A700 and A77 without issue and have recently upgraded to an A7R3.  I know the flash mount is different but wondering if the flash would be as compatible on the A7R3 as it is/was on the Dynax 7/A700/A77? I’m assuming a flash mount adapter is available. It’s a bit of a long shot, but wondering if anyone would know the answer to the question above please. thanks,

I'm planning on purchasing the a7iii and was wondering if I should sell the A7 to help fund my A7iii purchase or keep it as a backup body. I usually only keep one body with me but I see lots of folks on the forum having a backup camera. It's still perfectly useable, got it when it was $998 a couple years back. Probably can't sell it for much but not sure if will be using it either once I get a new cam. I have multiple lenses but I only shoot casually, not sure if I'd ever have two cameras...
