I love my a7ii, which I bought a year ago. It was a great step from my old A700. But I am still not quite happy with its use in the evening/at night. I am thinking about upgrading it to a7Rii, and I would certainly do it, but I wonder whether it is too late to do it now, if the next camera is to appear soon? Would it make a difference for images like that:

Hi all, recent convert to the A77ii from the A700 and mostly loving it, apart from having to adjust some of my lenses it seems - is there a standard adjustment for each lens I can refer to or do I need to do this for every lens where I see an issue? Every lens on my A700 which pretty much bang on, sharp, especially my 70-300G which is looking a bit of a dog on my A77ii. I want to shoot pictures, not charts, and certainly don't want to pay for some of the expensive focus adjustment...

I am considering buying the A77. I am satisfied with the A700 but I want AF micro adjustment. Does the A77 show the 'Super Steady Shot scale' in the viewfinder? It helps me a lot to be steadier when hand holding.

I'm contemplating adding high speed sync flash in to my shooting again.  I used to shoot the HVL-F58 on my A700 with high speed sync and and although I never had much use for it at the time, on camera it worked pretty well.  Nowadays I primarily shoot with A77ii  and have a set of Yongnuo flashes and trigger that I really like but they are all manual and max sync is 1/250.  Wondering if anyone has any experience with any high speed sync flash?  Any systems that work with HSS off camera?  I...

I got a Sony Alpha A700 when they were first released back like 150 years ago, it's getting a bit long in the tooth. With how much the cameras have advanced and the birth of my son in March I've decided to upgrade and pick up a new A77ii to replace it. My A700 came with an SAL18200 kit lens. I'm thinking I will keep it with the camera and put them up on craigslist together. I have the following Sony lens that I will be keeping - SAL70300G(4.5-5.6/70-300 SSM), SAL50F14(1.4/50), and a SAL100M28...

Hello; I'm using a Sony A700 with an HVL-42am flash and trying to fire the flash from a wireless trigger. I have a pixel pawn (Sony version). The Sony Flash fires when on camera, and it also works when I set the camera and flash into wireless mode. However, the Pixel Pawn does not fire the flash. I believe the issue is with the flash and not the transmitter\receiver set, as I have verified with a non-Sony flash and a hotshoe adapter in the Pixel Pawn receiver from the A700, that I can fire...

Hi all, I'm at a point where I want to upgrade to something much newer than my aging A700. The A77ii looks best fit for what I have, but I'm increasingly using my a5100 as a walkaround camera and get better results with it! So, my a-mount lenses are middle of the road but fairly good, and seeing a couple of shots on here with the 24-240, I could replace most of them, buy an adapter for some of my fixed length macro/portrait lenses and get an A7 series, but which one? The A7R is coming up very...

Anyone using the A-mount 16-50mm f2.8 lens on your A7x camera? I've got a good copy, that I loved so much in the past 10 month with my a700. I've since upgraded to the a7ii with kit lens. I am trying to convince myself to let it go. Is there any good reason to sell it? What is the equivalent in FE lens without breaking my wallet? I have LA-EA4 adaptor for Minolta stuff too. I don't want to hoard the lens that I know it can probably be sold with a good return value. I like shooting it at F4.5...
