Until two weeks ago I was using an A200 with a Minolta AF 50mm f/1.7. I noticed my pictures were kind of soft and had low contrast, so I thought the 10Mp sensor was not providing enough detail. I sold the A200 and got an A77ii. I love how responsive it is. However, if I use the same 50mm 1.7 I seem to experience AF problems and low contrast. I have supposedly micro-adjusted the lens, but still, it seems to be not that good auto focusing. I have seen pictures taken with the same lens and body...

I have got a Sony a200 dslr and want to buy a budget zoom lens (like Sigma 70-300mmf/4-5.6 DG Macro) however since the camera has become old, I am also thinking to get a new camera altogether. Should I buy a zoom lens for existing camera or go for a new camera altogether plus lens combo. I will be going for a trip to Singapore and hence want to capture some good pictures. My budget for a new camera is at max INR 50000 (USD 775). Thanks in advance, DC

So the time has come to start looking for a new full frame. I was not particularly ever considering an upgrade for a while, especially since Sony was going E-mount the whole way for years. Eventually I will need to switch, I told to myself, but then comes the A99 II which blew me away and surprised me as a new A-mount full frame that took care of a lot of concerns.  I have an A850 that has served me well over the years, and a healthy collection of great glass (Sony 85mm 1.4 ZA, 135mm 1.8 ZA,...

Hi! I got my new Sony a77ii last week, upgrading from an old Sony a200. Quite a learning curve! There's a feature I really like, and I'm trying to understand it! I've searched this forum as well as googling and find nothing. When I have my camera set on Superior Auto, Single Shooting and RAW, and I try to take a photo of something that is moving (a flag in the breeze for example), it says in the top of the viewfinder, "Cont. Shooting 3 Shot Cont. Shooting".  When I press the shutter, 3 photos...

Hi I'd be really grateful if someone can help. My A200 has been under the bed for a year of so (in it's case).  The camera is switching on and the shutter is working but no image is appearing on the LCD.  I've tried changing the memory card and the lense and have also reformatted the card and rebooted the camera. Could be a sensor issue but how do I diagnose? Shaun

I'm really enjoying this combo (I know, the AF is slow sometimes), but every once in a while, my A99 shows that no lens is attached when I use the Tamron. The A99 froze as well a few times. I have lenses from Minolta and Sigma but I only seem to have this problem with the Tamron. I've cleaned the contacts and the aperture is working correctly. I have not seen this issue when the Tamron is used together with my A200, A700 and even my analog Dynax 7. BTW the Tamron is a speed demon on the Dynax...

Hello Everyone,    I'm receiving my dad's K5 and am new to the Pentax world. I previously had a Sony A700 and A200. I am in need of a good general purpose lens and would like to know everyone's suggestions. I currently have a stock 18-55mm kit lens, and an old 50mm manual focus prime lens. I do a lot of rail fanning and landscape photography. Just trying to get something that would handle them both adequately until I can purchase a really nice lens. My price limit atm is 250. Thanks in...

I recently purchased a A330 body.  I really wanted a vertical battery grip for it.  But it seems even though Ownuser made one, they are just not available!  So the question is, and doing this on a budget (body under $250), which second body would be a good choice/matchup to get that would have a vertical battery grip for it? A200? A500?  Thanks for any input!-------------------------------Sony E SeriesA330 - 35-105 and 18-55Nex-318-55, 20mm, 60mm Sigma

My Sony A200 is using up battery, even when off. Around 2% every half hour.  If I go on a trip or leave it with the battery in over night, the batter drains completely. Very frustrating,  Any ideas,  Thanks,  Malky

Hi all. I was a A200 shooter and now just bought a A77II. I do have many problem with the AF. When i use my a200 with only center AF point. No matter how the background is, i can easily focus on the bird but not the background. However, for A77II, even i use center AF, 9 point AF (I can hold my center AF point at the bird body). All shoots goes to he background not the bird. Even with eagles with around 50m far, all shots dead. My af motor speed is high and my AF tracking time is 5. Did i do...
