We're considering including a few days at a game park camp in Sri Lanka early next year, and I see the owner can rent some decent equipment for game drives, including a Canon 600 f4 no less. Does anyone have any experience with one of these adapted to an A7 body? I have an A7S, and might also have an A7Rii by then. I might try it out for myself anyway since I think one or two members of my local camera club have got that particular Canon bazooka. If so, which adapter would people...

Hello to all. I have a question that I hope the community is able to help with. My main interest in photography is macro, and I have an opportunity to buy a Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro for a good price. So I wonder if anybody in this community has any experience with pairring a Sigma 150 + Sigma mc-11 + Sony A7. The Sigma macro is for Canon EOS. If this won't work it is also possible for me to get the Sigma for Nikon, is there any chance that this might work. I don't know if it is possible to get...

Anyone using a Sony a6300/a6000 and Sony a7II with adapted lenses. I have quite a few lenses from various manufacturers and same with adapters. Just sold my son's D5100 and D300 so he needs a new small camera. He also has some good Nikon Dx lenses (12-24 f4G) and 16-85vr. Any noticable difference in AF/MF in the APC and full frame bodies? Cannot afford a Sony a7SII or a7RII and he wants smaller than D500 (he has a D7100) . Fuji is not supported in India. Posted here since he would only be...

Now that Sony has finally introduced the wireless flash triggers for the A7 line I'm a bit shocked at the price and wondering if it's better to keep my Sony HVL-F43M flash as on-camera only, and for the price of the Sony receiver and trasmitter buy two Godox flashes and a receiver/transmitter. Any advice on this? I really don't want to trigger my flash with another flash on the camera, and the HVL-F20M is pretty expensive and useless on it's own.

Hello my friends :) Since about 15+ years I am in the Canon camp. Currently in use is a 5D2, 6D, some L zooms and fast Sigma primes. I am not planning to give up on those. Many years back, I used to shoot film on my dad's old Contax RTS with a Zeiss 50/1.4 lens. I found it with a bit of practice really easy to nail manually the focus, even outside the micro-prism, just on the screen surface. The focus was clearly visible. Unfortunately this "easy" manual focusing changed completely with...

Hi everybody! So the issue is, I used to be able to select continuous bracketing, hit the shutter once and the camera would take all the frames. About a week ago I noticed it would only take the first shot, I have to hold the shutter down to get the other frames, from what i have found so far this is something that happens when you have a flash attached to the hot shoe (which i do not)  So it appears my camera thinks there is a flash attached, I cannot turn the flash setting off, I just get...

I am leaving for Safari (Kenya) in a month and I am trying to prepare the camera gear that I need. I currently own a Sony A7 and A6000 together with the SEL55FE18 and SAL70300G and LA-EA4 adapter (as well as a bunch of manual lenses, beercan and various E mount adapters). I plan on bringing the A7 with the 55mm (or maybe a 24mm manual wide-angle) for landscapes and wide shots and use the A6000 crop-factor to my advantage with the 70-300G lens for better reach. After reading a lot on different...

What are my options? What are your favorites? I like the Sigma Art but that would mean getting an adapter. Autofocus is important, but not for low light/fast moving objects. Any guidance? Thanks in advance.

I have both SONY DSC-RX100 AND Sony flagship A7Rm2 Both have the beautiful playmemories effects (e.g. Watercolor etc). The simple camera allows to apply the effect in playback mode, while the A7 does not allow it. The effects are useless if you cannot apply them in playback mode. Any solution to that?  Thank you for your answers
