I have read all DPR reviews about the a57, a65 and a77Mk1. The a55 is also good but the a57 is better in everything so I don't consider it. GPS is nice but I have a separate logger. What strikes me is that all cameras get a gold reward but the reviewers seem most happy with the a57. 16MP is fine for me, I have both a99 and NEX-6 and really the difference is not that great. But the a57 get top remarks for low noise and fast AF. Also operation seems more snappy and the buffer is L-A-R-G-E and...

Like the title says, which is the best option? I have read that the Tokina is way sharper but on my a99 it would give me 10MP sharp pixels in APS-C mode, the Sigma would give me 24MP softer pixels and use the full sensor. Both lenses are about the same price used, roughly $300-$350 where I live. Which option gives me the best technical qulity for on screen viewing or printing up to 8"? Buying a used a65 or a77Mk1 would give me 24MP but for a lens like this I would like to go cheap. Otherwise...

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...

I have a Sony a65.  I want to use a wireless trigger to activate one or two speedlights remotely.  This is a hobby for me and I have a limited budget.  I have seen limited posts about Yongnuo Nikon 603's being modified for other Sony a-mounts but not specifically for the a65.  I am perfectly content with just manual controls but would consider spending a bit more for TTL control if it is available.  My budget for 1-3 triggers and 1-2 speedlights is around 200-225 max. Thanks for any help or...

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?...

I am looking for a reasonably priced lens for taking portraits for my Sony a65. Does the Sigma lenses fit the alpha mounts? I was looking at the 50mm/f2.8.

I recently purchased a used SONY A65 and was unable to get the shutter count before I purchased it. I already have an A65 with 150,000 and an A77ii with about 100,000. The price was decent. I got the camera and took an image and it reported 429,000 images. I tried two separate web sites to make sure. The body is in just pristine shape. It is just unbelievable this body has taken that many images and looks almost brand new. This is almost 300,000 images more than my body that I have had for...

Hi everyone, I need some advice. I currently shoot with the a 65 and the 18-135 sony lens. Thinking of moving over to the RX10iii. I would like to have images that are sharp. How would you rate the image quality of the two and would I be going backwards to the RX10. I don't use the video just for stills. Will appreciate comments and advice
