I am a hobbyist photographer.  Currently I have a Sony A58 with 18-135 lens.  This meets most of my needs and I also have a 75-300 lens for wildlife photography.   I do only JPEGS , no RAW.    Now,  I need a lightweight camera like the Sony A6000.    Is A6000 a good replacement choice ?  Please also suggest a walk around mid zoom lens  for A6000.  Thanks in anticipation.

I'm contemplating a second body to my a99. Main reason is that I would like a cheap UWA for landscapes and the SAL1635z is a bit beyond what I'm willing to pay.  I have enlightened myself by downloading and peeping on test images from the Imaging Resource comparometer. When I check at 100% I find that the a58 is not bettered (what I can see) by either of the a99, Nikon D3400, D5600 or Canon T6i. Of course the a99ii, A9 and later a7's are better but again, beyond my budget. What is the opinion...

I have a studio flash system that can be triggered with a flash. Some cameras can set the flash manually. Every Nikon slr I have tried from the cheap old D40 can do this, Some Canons like the Canon 60D, but not the beginner ones, and my old Minolta 7Hi can also set the flash manually. I then typically set the flash to 1/32 or 1/64 or 1/124 so that it would trigger the studio flashes without lighting up the person. In the menu of these cameras you will find three options for flash: ADI, TTL...

This has been gradually getting worse, and not having a MFA on this body means it's now a affecting my hit rate to the point it's a problem. The lenses are DT16-50 2.8 and DT55-300. Both exhibit the same issue on the same body, less obvious so on my backup A58. I find it odd that my beercan doesn't have this issue on my A65. Am I running to the limits of the A65 with those lenses. Is the A65 focus or the lenses worn out somehow? Do those lenses need a tune up, or does my kit - a body upgrade?...

Hey guys! Long story short: do I need a new body or would the Sigma 35mm 1.4 work well with the Sony A58 and improve the quality of my images? Here's more info: So I own a Sony A58 that I bought back in 2013 when I was quite a noob and not that interested in photography. I simply used it for my fashion blog. However, this year I started taking photography seriously and I'm enjoying it a lot. I am just struggling with low light photography. I don't know if it's the lens or the body, but I do...

Taking my new A6000 to Silverstone this weekend for the 6hr world endurance championship race. Looking for suggestions of some settings to get me started. I've never shot fast moving subjects before and only had the camera for a couple of weeks (moved from an A58). I have the 2 lens kit so imagine I'll be using the 55-210 most of the time on Sunday. The weather is supposed to be reasonable so there should be good light I hope. I've only had the camera a couple of weeks but am used to most of...

Hi, Ive had my A58 for a year and a half now after finally switching from film and my Olympus OM-2S, and in the past 6 months started to get more serious about the hobby. Although Ive enjoyed the A58, I find myself getting more and more frustrated with the quality of images and (apparent) lack of ability to accurately focus. Ive done a few tests and it seems to regularly back focus with all of my lenses (Min. 50mm 1.7, SAL55300, SAL1855-2). I've read many of the forum posts on back focus and...

I have a Sony SLT A58 and am using the Sigma 17-450mm F2,8 EX HSM lens.  When I apply the lens profile in Lightroom the image changes slightly according to the focal length that the shot has been shot in.  When comparing this to the Jpeg version of the same shot no lens correction seems to be applied to the image. I assumed that when shooting in JPEGthe Sigma JPEG profile would be applied automatically. If this is correct then this would make the Lightroom profile incorrect. Does anyone know...

I have just purchased a Tamron x2 teleconverter to use with my Tamron 70-300mm lens on my Sony a58. I don't seem to be able to take pictures in 'auto' mode. I am not a very accomplished photographer and do rely heavily on auto settings at the moment. Is this not an option with a teleconverter or is there a way to fix the problem? Thanks

Does anyone know if it's possible to change the orange colour that is used for some text on the A58's EVF display?Most of the text is white, which is great, but when you change aperture or shutter speed (in A or S priority modes) the text turns orange. In overcast/shady/indoor locations this isn't a problem but when it's bright/sunny/high contrast I find that the orange colour is very hard to see and if you're trying to find a specific setting it's almost impossible to find it. I'm wondering...
