Ok, i've got an a99v since 2015. Started with my 24-85/3.5-4.5 and recently bought a 24-105/3.5-4.5. the 24-105 is a bit cooler, but still good colors, nothing like Tamron. Since I've been less than happy with the low light performance of the kit (inexact af, grain) I just got the Minolta 50/1.4. Today I took some test snaps at 24MP RAW+JPEG with both lenses. Same scene, same time of day, same focal length, same exposure. No UV filter on either lens. After looking at both raw and jpeg I...
When selecting focus area - flexible spot, how do I then change the size of flexible spot? Can you switch between small, medium and large on the a99 mk2? The joystick moves the flexible spot around. when i press the the joystick, it moves the spot back to the centre. The default spot is small. I assume you must be able to change it to medium or large. As the camera isn't able to focus on such a small spot easily. I have searched for the answer, but am only able to find threads for a7 on...

Hi! I have a NEX-6 and an a99v. Both are very good for most things. but low light high ISO is not one of those things. How is the D3 compared to modern mirrorless like a6300, a6500, a7 Mk2 etc in terms of AF speed and accuracy in low light and also noise levels at high ISO. I'm talking about shots at sunset or lower light levels. I will not climb mountains or walk around for the whole day with this kit so weight is not a high priority. Technical quality with 12MP will be plenty good enough...

Hello I have been searching for some wide angle options for my A99 II. I came across an used Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 AF II DG HSM for 630$. Before I go ahead with the purchase, I wanted to get some expert advice. I tried the lens and I really like the huge wide angle I am getting with it. Nothing really special about the varying aperture and it obviously doesn't support the Hybrid AF. But I am really not at a level where I can perfectly judge the lens. Is this lens good? and is the price...
Hi! Need advise on investment budget. I have the NEX-6 with PZ16-50 and 55-210. I also have the a99v with Minolta 24-85 and Tamron 70-200 2.8 (old version, screwdrive focus). I recently bought a Minolta 24-105D for travel. Now, I am perfectly satisfied with the a99 regardless of glass, the NEX with 16-50 has problems with low light but gives good results i bright light e. g. sunny days. The problem I have with the NEX is that pictures lack depth, contrast and simply don't stand out. The...
I currently have a F60M flash which I used with my A99 and now with A99ii. I find it too heavy and bulky to carry around everywhere, especially while traveling where I need only a source of light and not all the bells and whistles. Can anyone suggest a lighter third party flash for that purpose?
Hi. Im deciding between those two but probably will buy the Sigma unless I got some good deal on the sony. It would be used in weddings but I rarely use Af-C (I am semi-p and do a few weddings each year (less than 10). The Sigma has the OS probably sharper and cheaper which is very important... The Sony has AF-D on my A99 and is more future proof with Hybrd PDAF... It will probabl nail focus outside the area of the Sigma in eye ef- should I one day buy the A99 2 (but its not a consideration...
