As we know, Sony a7 and also a99 records 12 bit RAW instead of 14 bit in many occasions, incl silent mode and in drive mode.  Have you seen any noise/colours/quality/dynamics difference? --My hobby www.jackdevant.com

I was reading about using manual lenses on Sony cameras and at least as of 2013 on a A99, there was no way to input the focal length of the lens into the camera, which makes it so the image stabilization won’t work. http://community.sony.com/t5/Alpha-SLT-DSLR-Cameras/In-camera-stabilization-with-manual-lenses/td-p/127893 Has this been updated with firmware for that model?Do any Sony cameras let you input the focal length so image stabilization will work? Thanks.

Hi Friends, I am thinking of buy a short tele for my A99 and find Sony 85mm 2.8 is best lens for the reasonable price. Now i find there is Tamron 90mm 2.8 Macro lens too in cheap cost. I know both lens build cheaply but worthy to try in budget price, I know Sony 85mm is my first choice but what about Tamron 90mm even its 1:1 Macro so i can use it as two in one option. Anyone who have these lens please share experience and help me to select one. --RegardsAfzal KhanKathmandu, Nepal

Hey guys.So far I've invested in used a-mount equipment, for example an a900 and a few lenses (Sony 35 f1.4 - Minolta 135 f2.8 - Sigma 50 1.4 - Minolta 70-210 f4 and a few more old lenses). I'm not happy with the limited abilities (DR, ISO, focus point, ...) of the a900 and planning to upgrade. However, there is only the a99 and the clumsy adapter solution for e-mount. I tested both but found both not convincing.I was wondering, where have all the former a-mounters gone. What's the best...

My wife has been asking me to purchase a macro lens for her.  We do wedding photography and some newborn photography.  She prefers the look of a macro lens over cropping for some close up shots.  I'm thinking primarily the lens would be used for ring shots and such.  We have a Nikon 35-70/2.8, but that lens is very soft wide open.  We also have extension tubes and reversing rings, however she does not like those and I would rather carry an extra lens than a bunch tubes. Anyway, macro lenses...

Sorry, I know you hate this question but I have a slight dilemma. Until pretty much now I've been using an inherited Konica Minolta Dynax/Maxxum 7D and while it was an extremely good camera when it came out, it's very old compared to current standards, so I need a replacement. I only have Minolta AF lenses. The good/decent ones are the following: - Minolta 50 mm f/1.7 - Sigma 12-24mm EX DG f/4.5-5.6 - Minolta 70-210 f/4 Beercan And a few rubbish ones like the Minolta 28-80mm, a Sigma 70-300mm...

I recently got a job selling Sony cameras, and am really just looking for stories or opinions on what each camera is really good at, and what people use the for. I know them all spec-wise front to back, but that doesn't necessarily translate to real-world performance. I think that comparing the Mirrorless (A7's, a6300 etc.) cameras to the DSLTs (A77II, A99 Etc.) would also be super helpful. If you use any of the camcorders or other cameras like the HX90V for example, i would love to hear...
