  1. Glad that you are happy ! However, your link, does not work ! Fix that, and we will have a look ! Cheers
  2. Sony Cameras, work best, with Sony & Zeiss lenses. I would forget the Tamron ! I had the Sony G master 24 -70 f2.8 , and as soon as the non master 24 - 105 came out, I swapped, due to sharpness & versatility of the 24 - 105. The Sony 85 mm, is a cracking good lens, but , with limitations. Do not rush out, to buy the 85mm, until, you have got used to the 55 mm ! Use it for at least a month, then ask, is this me ? Or do I need something else ? Lets say.. You buy 3 different lenses..... then go taking pictures...... inevitably, you will run into a situation, where you suddenly want a different lens, on the camera ! However, while doing so... The Jackdaw jumps from between the antlers, onto the deers back, which makes for a much less interesting photo ! Good luck, with whatever you decide.
  3. How much better, is the A 7 4 going to be, over the A 7 3 ? I could understand the question more, if you were going to update to the A 7 S or A 7 R series. Presumably, you are talking about using a tripod ? Offhand I have no idea how much the 200 - 600 lens weighs, but I did rent the 70 - 200 f 2.8 for a couple of days. Yes, lovely lens, but so heavy, to lug around on a day to day basis, I would never considder buying one. Is there anywhere , locally you can rent, the 200 - 600 ? do some test shots ? Or mebbe your local shop, will let you try it out ? It would be a real waste of money, to pay for the 200 - 600, then find out, its not what you expected, especially as you are happy with your 400 mm. I, would wait, and see , what this : A 7 4, has to offer.....then decide, if its so different, that you want to update. Then, adress the lens issue, but as said, try renting the 200 - 600 for a couple of days, then see what you think of the results ! Good luck, whichever way, you go.
  4. There must be a converter, available. Yes APS-C on the Full Frame Sony A7 III, means they will be bigger than the lens MM numbers. If your Nikon Lenses, are good quality lenses, then they should give you, good quality photos, on the Sony !
  5. Bummer ! Wish you had noticed it, to begin with. However, that is easy to say, if you do not have some sort of ; non conducting probe, that would be thin enough and long enough, to allow you to disloge the broken bit. Nothing more frustrating , than being able to see the problem, but cannot get at it ! Hopefully, you will get your camera back, quickly ! Can I ask, what type of SD card you used ? I use Sandisk Extreme Pro, and Lexar 2000 x, and never had a problem. Good Luck
  6. Ok, I have some questions, but let me start by saying I do not know anything about Godox. I use the Metz 44 AF- 2, dedicated for Sony, flash, and it functions perfectly on my A7 II, and on my A 9. Is Godox, the same ? as in Godox for Nikon , Godox for Cannon & Godox for Sony ? As in, are you sure your Godox, is for a Sony ? Have you searched the Youtube clips, to see if anyone, has allready made a clip, about putting the Sony & the Godox, together ? Have you, updated the Sony Camera, to the latest software ? Sometimes, an update adds more features, to what is allready ,a long & complicated menu system . Thats me, out of ideas, apart from, mebbe taking the two, to a reputable camera shop, and asking there ? I use my local branch of Jessops, as they have a Sony Brainiac, who just sorts it... then he tells you what he has done ! I hope you get an answer somewhere, then dont forget to post the solution, for others, who might be in the same boat ! Good Luck
  7. The fastest way to sort that out, would be to go to Youtube, and search the clips ! Its a bit late, to ask for advice, today ! Then expect a perfect solucion !
  8. I dont think so, perhaps try ebay ? Most camera shops, will only pay a pittance, for second hand lenses, unless in part ex for one of their shiny new ones. That might be the way to go ?
  9. Sorry, but the ideal lens, for what you are expecting, has not been made, yet ! The best compromise, at the moment, would be the Sony 24 - 105 ...F 4. Once you have got used to that, then only you , can decide, what other lens, you may need ! Good luck
  10. Er ?? Thats why I told you to look at the A7 S II ?????????????? Why look at the A7 R series, when you are looking for low light photos ? Who mentioned Video ? I see no mention of video anywhere ! So , that ,certainly was not me ! I dont do video ! Higher file size, usually means using a tripod , to avoid blurring Whatever, good luck, with whatever you decide.
  11. Are you expecting hand held photograpy, or mainly tripod ? They are both great lenses, however the 90 mm macro only weighs : 602 Gr Whereas the 100 - 400 weighs 1.3 kilos ! I once rented the 70 - 200 F 2.8, and as great as the lens was, at 840 Gr, it was too heavy for me, to considder buying. Good luck with whatever you do.
  12. Bit of a confusing question ? The Sony A7 R III is an awesome camera, but not for the low light you are talking about . Sony made the A 7 S series, especially for low light & concerts etc. Sony Alpha A7S III: release date and price Rumors suggest it'll be here in the first half of 2020 Sony exec confirmed continuation of product line in August Predicted prices expected to be around $2,999/£2,849 There will be plenty A7 S II cameras, around, at a lot less, now. Good Luck with your choice. Perhaps check Ken Rockwells review of the A7 S II ? very positive ! The A7S II goes up to ISO 409,600 while the A7R II "only" goes to ISO 102,400. Even ISO 102,400 is ludicrous; if you're shooting at an ISO this high, you're doing something wrong. I never use above ISO 6,400 unless I'm shooting examples .Ken Rockwell
  13. Surely, despite your misgivings, you have checked the photos that you have taken ? Or Have you not taken any , yet due to the assumed gap ? Go out, take a series of photos, then view the card on your computer. That will imediately tell you, if its all sealed correctly or if light is somehow getting in ? Get back to us, with your findings. Good Luck
  14. I can only say, do a bunch of test shots, of nothing important, then see how they turn out. That should give you all the info, you need.
