    Hi Jaf-Photo,   @ $550 it is fantastic value. WackoJ123 cannot go wrong with that purchase. I am in full agreement.

    ^^^ Long post but worth the read. Real photography should never be about the performance of one's gear. Back to the corner performance of 2470GM, one of my main gripes with the FE system is iffy co...

    Hi guys,   I am considering replacing my 28-70 kit lens with a 24-70. Being on a limited budget (< 1.000 euro) my shortlist is: the Sony/Zeiss 24-70 f4, Tamron 24-70 f2.8, Tokina 24-70 f2.8 (b...

    Jaf-Photo has posted in Your thoughts and suggestions needed in Sony Alpha Full Frame Cameras.
    My first thought was to fully agree with Jaf-Photo. Upgrade to the A77ii. It is reasonably priced and you will have full used of all your existing lenses without the need for an adapter. Then I lo...

    delewin has posted in Your thoughts and suggestions needed in Sony Alpha Full Frame Cameras.
    My reasonable recommendation would be to get A77 II. First, it has a very good sensor which delivers sharp, detailed photos with excellent colours. It also has the fast AF you may need for movin...

    You don't have a tele lens, so I would add that to your list. It opens up new possibilities in photography. The same goes for a really wide angle lens. That's where I would go. Regarding the Profot...

    You have the 90m so I'd skip the 85 and 100mm as redundant. I have no idea what a B1X is so no-comment. A pocket camera is always fun so thaz a good idea. If you will ONLY consider items on your li...
