Hello fellow Sony usersI have a problem with a combination of my Sony A99 II and my Sony 24-70 ZA lens. This combination has been used heavily for the last year. But recently it seems that the electronic connection between the camera and lens is failing. Auto-focus is disabled and the aperture can not be set. If I try to press the lens to the camera (pressing up a little), the connection is restored.So it sure seems to be a problems with the connection.The strange thing is, that I have no...
Hey, I've asked a bunch of questions here before and I'm incredibly grateful for the help I've received. After having used Fuji and Sony for a couple of months I generally prefer Sony, mostly out of habit and familiarity. I'd like a more portable setup though esp for the winter where I'd like to attempt some night/astro photography. I usually don't shoot any sports or so, but if I do I'm blessed with being able to borrow an A99 II with a 70-200 2.8. For everything else it's landscapes and...

Hi, I know these cameras are fairly different, but for a variety of factors, these have become my front runners. I am curious about how much better (if any) the dynamic range and ability to recover (over/under exposure) in raw is on the Fuji GFX 50S. Both of these cameras are kind of niche in different ways, so hard to find anyone that knows.. I know the A99 II uses the same sensor as the A7R II, but it has a translucent mirror that does affect iso performance, and perhaps other things as...
I'm tethering with my a99II (2 months old) using a tether tools jerkstopper and cable and all of a sudden they disconnect and or wont stay in ,by that ,I mean I a got a new one out of the packet and the same ....I haven't dropped ,pressed or leant on it unnecessarily...(.I know this pin configuration is used by other models and I prefer the mini but..) I then used the little cable that I got with the camera and it seems to work fine (in a short test this evening) I'm under the impression...
I am deciding on a full frame high MP "camera of my dreams". I recently brought a Nikon D810 and was greatly disappointed in that I couldn't get the autofocus to work. I then returned it and was looking at the Canon 5Ds. I was reading the reviews on THIS camera and found many comments on their autofocus problem. Looking now at Sony's a99 II which brags about their excellent autofocus. I am having trouble deciding between the a99 II and the a7R II, The a99 II demands # 500-600 more. For the...

So the time has come to start looking for a new full frame. I was not particularly ever considering an upgrade for a while, especially since Sony was going E-mount the whole way for years. Eventually I will need to switch, I told to myself, but then comes the A99 II which blew me away and surprised me as a new A-mount full frame that took care of a lot of concerns. I have an A850 that has served me well over the years, and a healthy collection of great glass (Sony 85mm 1.4 ZA, 135mm 1.8 ZA,...
I understand SLT cameras as having a mirror which let the light to viewfinder as well as sensor at the same time. But If a99 II utilise this technology why does it has a electronic viewfinder instead of optical view finder? If they are to put EVF why they have implemented SLT technology which cut few light. For focus advantage?
I'd like to know which of the two cameras you'd like to have if you could only have one, the A99ii or the A9? I go to a lot of baseball games and sit close enough to where my Sony 70-200 f2/8 gets good shots with my current camera the A77ii. I also take a tone of landscaping shots in the D.C. area (can you see my problem)? Smoking 20 fps with the A9 or 42 mp quality with the A99ii
