hi everyone, need some advise/opinions. im looking for a walkaround lens and i have limited budget. currently im looking at the zeiss 24-70 F4 and the tamron 24-70 f2.8. their price are almost the same but i read that it seems like tamron is more sharp. my question is how is the autofocus speed if i use tamron 24-70 on sony a7 with la-ea4? cant seems to find review on it, all reviews i found are for sony a7ii and so on but not sony a7.

I have a SONY A7II, and want to adapt legacy lenses.  I have bought several K&F Concept apdapters for Olympus OM and Konica lenses.  The adapter I have are OM-NEX labeled.  But reading  the  description on Amazon, it says they do not fit the A7II, A7IIs, or A7RII. They seem to work fine.  What am I missing.  Are there completely different adapters for the newer A7 cameras?

Does anyone experience what feels like something sliding around in their a9 body when they move it around while its powered off and has no lenses attached? Just got mine and I'm trying to determine if this is normal or not.  At the camera store I never noticed this with A7 bodies.

Hello, Everytime I turn on my sony A7 I get this error : "Unable to read memory card. Reinsert Memory card." It blocks the screen so I can't do anything. I tried switching SD card, I even bought a new one nothing works. These card all works on other camera and computer. I would go to sony store so they could take a look at it.   The problem is I am travelling through brazil for the next month and my goal was to take picture here.  Plus the only store they say they could take a look at it...

Does this combination work?   My a7 is getting a bit wobbly and while I know there's some controversy about replacing the original mount, I bought the camera used and decided to order the replacement mount.  I've read that the Loxia 21mm won't focus to infinity with the Tough E-Mount LT, but couldn't find anything about the Batis 18mm on this mount.  Replies appreciated.

I have always chosen Multi on all of my past Sony cameras (a6300, a6500, a7, a7ii). I read in another thread something about a new option on the a6500 and a9, where the exposure can be based on the focus area. Is that the Highlight option? Which metering mode do you use most of the time? Thanks for any comments. Edit... I re read the manual and now see the option is in Spot metering and selecting Focus Point Link. I read this prior to asking, but the meaning hit me too late. I plan on trying...

Hi all, Trying to narrow a camera and lens down that has great AF lock on and response time and is as portable as possible. I am not sure I want a DSLR even a crop sensor one. My idea is between two mirrorless makers. I will add I do shoot the Nikon D750 and have great F 1.4 prime glass for that but it is too big I think to blend in to the surroundings The only exception for the D750 is something more organized where I have more gear for a organized photo shoot. * I like the larger sensor...

I've been using my A7 for a while now. It started to get a bit annoying that it sometimes irreversibly ruins my nice sun stars. I tried to google it how much better the A7R was in this regard but I couldn't find a clear answer. Some of the users experiences reflections with some lenses (e.g Zeiss 35/2.8 FE) but others have beautiful sun stars even at the edge of the frame. So I like to ask the opinion of the A7R users about it. I don't want ($$$) A7II or A7RII at the moment. These happened...

So I have an A6000 and will be skipping the A6300 and A6500 in favour of a future A7 or A6k model. Meanwhile I need a new tablet. I'm thinking one with an awesome display for showing my photos on a one-to-one basis. Is there anything out there in Android land which forum members already use for this and general usage? Thanks in advance.
