  1. Hi everyone. I'm pretty new here. I have a Sony A7III and shoot mostly outdoors photography. I'm considering buying a 200-600mm lens but have also heard rumors that Sony is going to be introducing the Sony A7IV soon. I have a 400mm lens that works for most purposes so the longer length isn't that critical and I'm wondering if I should save my money and wait till the A7IV comes out. Has anyone heard when Sony expects to release that camera. If it's going to be fairly soon, I will probably hold off buying the lens, if not, well... Any thoughts you folks might have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and it's nice to be here.
  2. Thank you both for your thoughts. Much appreciated.
  3. Hi. I’m trying to find an affordable lens for my A7III that I can attach and walk around the neighborhood with. I live in a semi-rural area so I want something that will be good for landscape shots too. Id prefer not to carry around a large lens on my walks. If anyone has any suggestions I’d be very appreciative. Thanks
  4. Thanks for your reply. I did not know about re-centering by pressing the multi-selector. Thanks for the tip.
  5. I'm new to my Sony A7III and for the most part happy, but recently I've noticed after I take a picture and move somewhere to take another, the green focus point has moved and I have to use the joy stick to recenter it. I like to keep it centered for those run and gun type of shots. Any suggestions? Thanks very much!
  6. I was following a YouTube tutorial and made some setting changes and saved them to the 1 on the MR (Memory Recall) Memory. Does anyone know how to clear those settings? Location: Camera Settings I menu, Page 3. Thanks!
  7. Please disregard. I have found the answers to my questions. Thanks anyway.
  8. Hi All. I do a lot of outdoor photography; landscape, nature, wildlife when I can find it. I recently switched from a Canon 80D to a Sony A7III. I'm torn between two lenses and was wondering if any of you could help. First Sigma has a 100-400mm f/5.6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens for Canon EF that can be coupled with the Sigma MC-11 mount converter Canon EF-E. This seems like a good way to go except everywhere I usually shop says they are on back order and havve no idea when they will get them in. I did find a refurbished version of this lens that I could buy but I'm hesitant to buy refurbished. There is also a Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM with the same Sigma MC-11 adapter that I am considering. I guess I should say that I absolutely cannot affford the native Sony 100-400mm lens. Oh I wish I could. Do you folks have any recommendations? I'm not a pro, but In love photography and especially outdoor photography. Thanks very much for your time
  9. Hi. I didn't see this posted so thought I'd ask it here. I want a 100-400mm lens for my Sony A7III but can't afford any of the Sony lenses. I was wonderinig if anyone could tell me if the Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon EF would work if I paired it with my Metabones EF-E mount T adapter? I have tried asking Metabones, Sony, and Tamron but got no response. B&H and Adorama didn't really seem to know. Any help anyone here could give would be greatly appreciated. TIA
  10. Hi. If this isn't the place to post this, I apologize. I'm really new to my Sony A7III and foolishly tried to clean some tough dust spots off my sensor by myself. Now I have more spots than I had before and I think I have a kind of smear on one side. Can anyone tell me what to look for to know if I have damaged the surface of the sensor? I'm going to have to get it professionally cleaned obviously, but I'm just curious if it's going to be a cleaninig or something major. I'm going to attach a couple of files that show the spots. Thanks very much in advance.
  11. ...And I suddenly feel really dumb. Yes. Of course that is where the list is. I've been so busy looking elsewhere that I neglected the most obvious place. Thank you very much.
  12. I just got my new Sony A7 III and am trying to learn all I can about it. I'm going to go out on a limb here and ask what may be a dumb question: There are numerous icons displayed on the LCD and in the viewfinder, some ofo which I cannot figure out their meaninig. Is there anywhere that I can find a list of all of these possible icons? Thanks in advance.
