Dear All, I am totally new to the forums and I'd really love to get your kind opinions about a question that I'm really finding hard to unravel. I am professional photographer and use sony gear since the beginning. I currently own two A99 and an A7RII. I love the quality of the latter, I also had the opportunity to try the newest 35mm 50mm and 85mm 1.4 e mount lenses and I feel they're quite superior even than my a mount zeiss 85mm 1.4. But, I also fee that the A7RII isn't quite ready for...

I have the two older alpha full frames with lots of glass , and the nex 7 with some lenses that I carry as backup when working and as my vacation camera . I'm flirting with the idea of a rx1 in my pocket due to it's size. Can't imagine having the a99 with 35mm lens on me all day long. First question. So , with the nex 7 I mostly use the zeiss 24mm (LOVE this little guy), this combo makes it analogues to the RX1 r2 with the 35mm lens it has; someone that used the zeiss 24mm , how does it...

I have as assignment coming up and could really use the upgrade from a99 to a99ii. However, the preorder could take any time from a week to a month away. It seems like it's much easier to snatch one at europe. Is there a way to buy it online there and ship it to north america?

I downloaded some test shots from the early reviews and was really hoping to see a huge improvement in low light performance. I have the a99 now and it's be trailing in low light performance for years compared to the competition, so I was really looking forward to my a99ii preorder. But is everyone else looking only at the jpegs? If you open the test shots in Sony IDC and turn off the noise reduction (which I think people forgot to do??). The noise performance is very mediocre. See screenshot...

Hi, I am A99 user, I saw Tamron 90mm 2.8 1:1 Macro old version in around $125-175 used. any user please give me suggestion, how is that lens? its good or do i try for 85mm lenses, i want two in one rather than just portrait lens. so here my mind stuck on Tamron 90mm 2.8 vs Sony 85mm 2.8/Samyang 85mm 1.4 Manual lens, Helios 85mm 1.5 (expensive). suggestion needed. --RegardsAfzal KhanKathmandu, Nepal
