    psartman has posted in 35mm f/2 AF compact lens- when if ever? in Sony Alpha Full Frame Lenses.
    Thanks for this information. Yes, I forgot that Fuji has its own X-Trans filter instead of the Bayer. I am not aware of a 25mm f/1.7 fuji lens, you're probably referring to the 23mm in both f/2 and...

    I'm suggesting the above cuz I find it hard to imagine that some light, bright highly monochromatic light, would really cause actual damage to the sensor. Without real expertise, I s...

    Yes.  I have seen exactly this problem with the A7ii/Techart Golden Eagle/Contax G 28mm lens combination.  Does not occur on the 45 or 90mm lenses, nor with the 28 at shutter speeds of...

    I shoot birds mostly and am using a a7mII or my a6000.  I get my best with the a6000.  I am considering upgrading to an a6500.  Is it worth the price? Any problems?

    I must say its such a refreshing shot of Wild Cherry flowers, specially the second shot. I guess I am seeing this flower for the first time and that why I am loving it more.

      I personally would upgrade the body.I have owned both models, prefer the increased resolution of the II.Perhaps more importantly, it will hold its value, I believe, better than the A7r.It may have issues with ? shutter shock although it is controversial whether this is real or not.However it is enough of a story out there to influence resale value.As to lenses, I have owned or tried most of them and for my taste and use I would rank them in this order:

      1.50mm Zeiss 1.4 an amazing lenses superior to the other 50mm 55mm options.If I could only keep one of my lenses, this would be my choice.

      2.35mm Zeiss 2.8 a terrific lens, tiny and very sharp.

      3.90mm Macrofor my needs more versatile than the Batis 85mm which I used for about a month.

      4.28-70 2.8wonderful near prime quality at all focal lengths

      5.70-200 F4.0Very sharp and given its zoom range light (compared to the 2.8)

      6.16-35 f4I just don't use this heavy but excellent lens enough.
