    Sony A7 vs A7s

    I had the A7ii, and traded it in for an A7Rii. Huge improvement in pixels, and low light. I later added the A7S, and it is sooo much better in low light, both photos and video. You'll see from my gallery that I mostly shoot in the dark. 12MP is plenty for social media use, you just have to compose correctly, where with a very high MP camera you can shoot wide, and compose in post.

    Will Sony bring out a 35mm GM?

    Sony did release the 85GM after the Batis 85, and they later released their own 85mm non GM, so it is possible,but the Zeiss 35 1.4 is exceptional, and you won't go wrong with it. JCC

    Which fast lens?

    If you shoot weddings, a second body is almost a necessity. For me, wedding lens lineup is 16-35GM, 24-70GM, 70-200GM, 85GM, and a macro lens for ring and cake shots. JCC
  5. From back button Fn, go to the white balance, and joystick right to get to the white balance graph. Make sure you are centered, it looks like you are pulled all the way to G7. JCC

    Sony A7rii blurry EVF

    In menu setting, are you able to change focus on the lettering? JCC
  7. I don't use it. Where this fails is if someone is in a spotlight, it will often overexpose them attempting to bring the background up. Also shooting against a white backdrop when you are trying to knockout the background. JCC
  8. Slog will help, but it isn't like raw. Remember that even in 4k your frames are only about 8 megapixel each. I have gotten some good frame caps from video, but only in really good light where I was able to go to 1/250 or faster. JCC
  9. Nothing for nothing, so by going 2x magnification you go to F/5.6 The teleconverter combo would be more versatile because it would allow you to go to the faster 70-200 2.8 when needed. JCC

    Maybe you are too close? The trigger will not fire reliably too close unless put into short distance mode. To do this hold down the flash button on the remote while powering up. LED will flash, release button. JCC
  11. Try a faster shutter speed if there is enough light. When I've shot runway, and other walking subjects I'm at 1/500 or faster if I have good light or strobe. JCC

    Street Lens for a7R II

    On your camera the 55 is very interesting in another way. With your eye to the viewfinder, and both eyes open, the images are in near perfect size sync allowing you to shoot both eyes open easily. JCC

    Street Lens for a7R II

    Your camera produces images roughly 8,000 pixels wide by 5300 tall, 42.5 mp. Instagram is roughly 1080 by 1080 pixels, 1/36th the original resolution, so you can crop a photo down quite a bit depending on where it will be used. JCC

    Street Lens for a7R II

    55/1.8 is very non threatening, and on an Rii even extreme crops are still good enough for social media resolution. 85mm prime might let you compose from a little further away, but its size prevents any stealth. JCC
