I did a forum search but didn't see any specific information about this combination. I am seriously considering the A7iii so I am wondering if I could use some of my A-mount glass. I have the original Sony 70-200/2.8 SSM and LEA3 that I have used on my A6000. I found the AF too slow for anything but stationary objects so I still have to break out my A700 if I want to shoot action. I am hoping that performance is better on the newer bodies. Anyone have any experience with this...
I used to make macro shots, mostly of flowers, with my old Sony A700, and I loved it, but I moved to a different direction after switching to A7rii. Now I think about returning. Which lens would you recommend, 50 f/2.8 or 90 f/2.8? I have heard that 90 f/2.8 is great optically, but heavy. I already have Sony 85 f/1.8 and FE 55 f/1.8, so I would need 50 f/2.8 or 90 f/2.8 only for macro. Any suggestions, or something else, like Voigtlander Macro 65 f/2?
Some legacy Minolta A Mount lenses (either from Minolta or third party) suffer from the lack of anti-reflective coating on the rear lens element facing the sensor as follows: Caused by the light bouncing off the imaging sensor to the lens and back to the sensor, a 'hot spot', a brightened picture center can result. Visibility of this depends on the aperture used. When shooting film, such anti-reflective coating isn't needed as film is much less reflective as the rather 'shiny' digital imaging...

I have shot an a700 for about 10yrs, and have accumulated several A-mount lens. Wanting to purchase either an a99 ii or an a7R iii which I (now retired) will have to rely on for many years. Would I get better results (focus, resolution, etc) with the a99 ii using my old Sony and Minolta a-mount glass, or changing over to the new mirror-less system of the a7R iii combined with the LA-EA4 adapter for my A-mount lens. At this point in life and a limited budget, it would be difficult building...

One day it is perfect, the next screen will not display anything. Camera still takes pictures, but after a shot, or pressing menu (or any other buttons) the screen does nothing. It is as if I "disabled" the LCD? Is it possible there is a way I mistakenly disabled it and can turn it back on? I searched all available forums and found nothing similar. Also, read and re-read the manual but found nothing. Makes taking indoor shots impossible, cannot shoot in manual to get instant pic feedback...

I recently posted parts of this in the Sony forum - asking about the HX90V - but got no answers. Hope I have more luck here! In 2009 I bought a Panasonic ZS3 (25 – 300 mm), which was great fun to use when I didn't want to carry my big Sony A700 and lenses around. I had trouble with the image quality though, and after about 8 months I sold it on. (I pixel-peeped a lot more back then.) As my main camera at the moment is the fixed lens 28mm Fujifilm X70, there are times when I feel the need for...
