I just moved from the a99 to a99ii. I also have the RX100 and RX1Rii. Of all the cameras, the A99ii constantly annoys me when I try to focus and it would instead take a photo.  Anyone else have this experience? Do I have a bad unit?

It's suprising for me after reading so much positive reviews of A99 II all over internet. DPReview awarded it just 85% even Silver Award. Is it really not deserving more or thats the truth reviled? I notice one line like not enough lens range, dont we have enough Sony lens, Minolta Lens and large range of M42 lens? when A99 got 84% Gold award years back it like big bang among other camera now A99 II with 85% Silver it's like too low than expected. Share your views friends. --RegardsAfzal...

So when packing up my camera equipment I realized perhaps I should get a newer body. I see that there is the A99 II coming out but for better or...

I have an a6500 and I can't understand why my Rokinon Aspherical Fisheye looks horrible on it. When I say "horrible", I mean it is just not very sharp!  You might say, "Well, it is a cheap lens that is not very sharp", but I have had it for a few years and it works great (OK, good enough) on my other cameras.  Previously I used it on my 16 mp. Sony a580, and I took a couple award-winning photos and even sold one. I have also used it on my FF a99.  What the heck am I missing? Assuming it is...
