  1. I am new to Sony cameras and have an A6500 plus an MC-11 adapter. Generally what is the best focus set up for this combination. Jason Lanier seems to be able to get face detect with the A6500, MC-11 and a Canon 85mm lens (I don't know if it is the f/1.2L or the f/1.8). I have a Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens and would like to use it with the MC-11 on my A6500 especially for portraits.
  2. For primes, perhaps the Sony 35mm f/1.8 or the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 might be your best bet. If you like shooting wide and want a small lens, the pancake 20mm f/2.8 would be the ticket. However, I tend to carry two lenses a slower, general purpose zoom and a faster prime... My ideal travel set for serious photography would be the Sigma 16mm f/1.4, Sigma 30mm f/1.4 or Sony 35mm f/1.8 and the Sony 85mm f/1.8. This 3-lens kit would with an A6500 body weigh a bit more than you probably desire but should be well within reasonable limits. Finances are the only reason that I am not shooting with this combination right now.
  3. I agree with this topic heading. However, an excellent photographer using excellent equipment will be far ahead of another equally excellent photographer using less than optimum gear...
  4. I am a U.S. Navy retired photographer who also did some commercial photography in my younger days. I have been shooting Canon Digital Cameras for over 14 years and am now seriously considering the A7iii mainly because of its great auto focus and also because I can also use many of my Canon lenses with this camera. However, I am not in a hurry to get a new camera (I am shooting now with a Canon 7D2 and a 6D2) and will wait until Sony unveils the much talked about A6700 (or whatever they will call it). I am not wedded to full frame and could easily consider a crop version of the Sony A9 if that is actually what the new Sony will offer. I no longer shoot professionally except that I am the photographer for a dog rescue group Maltese Rescue California and photograph a few hundred rescue dogs each year. A crop format camera would suit me just fine...
