  1. Hopefully, when released these will be easier to get then the 400mm f/2.8 GM. Not likely to be announced during the 2019 NABShow although, SONY is making an announcement today at 2:oo pm PST From Alpha Rumors https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/new-sony-patent-discloses-500-f-4-and-600-f-4-e-mount-lens-design/
  2. Hey! I just recently bought the Fotodiox mount adapter from Nikkor F-Mount to E- mount, so I can use my two Rokinon lenses on my a7 camera. I have the Rokinon 16mm t2.2 full frame and Rokinon 85mm t1.5 full frame. I tried the adapter with my 16mm and it worked just fine both APS-C OFF and ON. But the 85mm doesn't work when I switch between APS-C OFF and ON and it stays in ON , so I can't use the whole full frame and it sticks with the crop APS-C. I've just tried these settings in the a7 Menu since I can't find anywhere else an option to work this out. Any ideas? Thank you !
  3. Hi everyone! I just acquired a couple of months ago the Sony a6000 to start into serious photography (I used to shoot IPhone and even if I love it, I've always looked for better and true stunning photos), I paired it with the Sigma 16mm F1.4 and love the versatility and the results especially the image quality. I've used primarily as an all-round, travel, every day photography even environmental portraits in low light. I'm very excited since just received the A7III in addition to start in the FF world and I'm just trying to decide the first lens should I buy for, after reading and watching a lot of reviews I narrowed my search to the following candidates: Sony 24-105mm F4 G, very useful focal length range and super sharp, F4 aperture may be compensated by increasing ISO in low light situations. Tamron 28-75mm F2.8, standard zoom lens for landscape, portrait and street photography, the F2.8 and apparently good sharpness is something really gets me. Sony Zeiss 50mm F1.4 / 55mm F1.8 standard primes, the overall performance and good perks of the 55mm are great, but the reviews about the stunning pop ("like magic") of the 50mm image quality really wants me to incline for this lens, is that really good? Sony 24mm F1.4 G Master, in pre-order right now but I really expect an excellent performance and to be a go-to for landscape photography and overkill the previous experience with the Sigma 16mm 1.4 (APS-C). I can just afford 1 lens this year (I won't be buying another lens even after savings) and don't mind to be walking in or out to get the perfect composition, I just want to get the best experience and image quality and start building my lens kit after time. Thank you for the feedback!

  5. Hi All, I'm curious about your opinion of the a6000. I currently have the basic a5000 and, honestly, have been impressed with its performance using a 55-210mm lens. I can get gorgeous images with terrific bokeh, I like the size, and I'm not bothered by some grain. I currently have the 16-50mm and 55-210mm lenses, which have served my photo avocation needs just fine, and would like to continue using them with a better camera. I've been looking at the A7, A7ii, a6500 and a6000. I'm not crazy about the idea of having to start buying full-frame lenses for the A7 and A7ii, although I understand both will accommodate my current e-mount lenses. So right now, interestingly, I am leaning toward the economical a6000, mainly because it has an optical viewfinder, fast 11 fps continuous shooting, hybrid AF, and the 24 MP sensor. I tend to shoot a lot of close-ups and portrait shots, not usually in low light. Do you think I need the full frame sensor to "take my images to the next level?" And do I need the internal 5-axis in-body image stabilization in the a6500? My impression is that the Optical Steady Shot stabilization in my lenses is good enough. Would they be notably better with in-camera stabilization too? Thank you!! Here's are a couple of pictures I shot yesterday: butterfly cemetery sunset
  6. Hi all, Avid A7RII user here - but trying to find a lens solution for a current project. I am looking for a not huge, fixed telephoto lens somewhere in the 120-150 range - preferably a 135. Curious as to what good options would be? I can't seem to find much of anything, which is frustrating, and thought there might be some good user experience here? My biggest concerns are the size/weight of the lens and IQ. I walk miles with my camera, and weight is important. It's why I got the Sony. Right now I usually use the Contax G 90mm 2.8 with the converter, and it is a fantastic size/IQ combination for what I am shooting - but even this wonderful, older lens has its' limits on the Sony sensor, so I'd like to not get any worse in terms of IQ, but it's too short for some of the work I need to do. Aperture is not a big concern - an f/4 lens could work. Manual focus is not a big deal but if this comes on an older lens that renders colors like an older lens I can't have it for what I'm shooting. The Contax G lenses are as old as I can get an even that 90 renders colors not *quite* as well as the 55 I have, which makes the images harder to use in continuity. Budget is also not really a concern, unless we're getting like, over $2k. (I would like to spend less but if I can find the right tool I will pay for it). I know I'm spoiled with the size of the 90 though. I've seen some off brands like Rokinon etc but should I trust them? My gear knowledge has it's limits and I usually stick to native brands or Zeiss glass. Never really trusted those other ones but maybe they are better these days? Last time I looked seriously into a third party lens was the sigmas back in like 2007 for my Nikons - I don't buy a whole lot of gear.
  7. Hi guys, I[ve got a brand new A7RII, and have been using it mainly for photography, As far as I can see, all firmware is the latest, and it is being used in pairing with a Sony Zeiss 24-70 f/4 lens. Today I had a video shoot for a client, however when inspecting the footage, I've seen that a LOT of the clips are covered in weird vertical noise patterns, lines, or something - I really have no idea what they are. I have no idea at all how to fix this and what is causing it, please, please can anyone help out? This is not happening to any clips shot at any other resolution than 4K. Please, does anyone have any ideas as to what this is and how to fix it? Please see attached picture!
  8. Hello all, could someone please tell me how the following lens's would work with my A7? I understand they are e-mount, but as far as I can tell they are not full-frame, so I want to know...will the 50mm act like a 75, and the 35 act like a 50mm? And will they end up as cropped images or would they in fact be full frame just a larger .mm because of the size of the sensor? thank you !

  9. Hi all. First post here, so be gentle please. I'm an enthusiast level Fuji X user who ran into the limitations of the crop sensor this weekend when I had to print images in large sizes for the first time. This led me to a bunch of Googling, which eventually brought me to the Sony A7 line. I make no money from my photography but LOVE taking photos, processing, reviewing, etc... My question is this: the Fuji X line is fine for what it is, but I'm getting more and more into night photography, landscapes, and long exposures, and everything I read about the Sony A7 line and it's full frame sensor is positive. I can trade all my Fuji gear and get an A7 and a kit lens (or a 28mm prime) for a reasonable price. As I want something I'm going to grow into, I'm wondering if now is the time to jump to the mirrorless full frame game, and if so, which A7 would best suit me. Again, I'm not a pro, but an extremely avid enthusiast. Thank you for any help and input, and I hope to learn a lot from everyone here. Jason A. Westchester, NY
  10. I'm absolutely in love with my Sony A7s as a B cam to my Sony FS7 (and sometimes primary since I work with gimbals so much). But, as a videographer who does a lot of documentary work, I'm in love with the idea of the Sony VG-9000. Obviously, that camera has some limitations compared to the A7s and FS7, but it seems like that camera body with the exact specs of an A7rII would be a huge hit. I do a little photography, but 95% of my work is video. And while I don't mind using the Sony A7s in doc-shoots (where the FS7 is just too large and imposing), it would make a lot of sense to have the form factor and usability of something like the VG900. Any possibility of this update? I'd buy it up and pair with my Loxias in a heartbeat. Anyone else up for this idea?
  11. Picked up my Loxia 50mm today and took a few quick shots. Oh my! Instantly my favorite lens for the A7R (and I suspect it will be for my A7MkII as well). In my 45 years of photography I have literally shot 100's of manual and auto focus primes (Leica, Zeiss, Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Minolta, etc.), and IMHO the Loxia 50 is as good overall as any of them and much better than most. I have the Sony/Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 "baby Otus" and love it as well (largely for its wide aperture sharpness), but it makes more clinical images compared to the classic rendering of the Loxia. The Loxia balances perfectly on the A7R. The lens is mechanical perfection. Focus is easier and faster than any other MF lens I've ever used, especially with the A7R auto zoom in feature when you turn the focus ring. Colors are amazing. A tad soft in the extreme corners when I shot a brick wall wide open as you would suspect, but otherwise very sharp and contrasty. Very, very usable in real life straight from f/2. Wow--can't wait for the Loxia 85mm and 25mm !!!
  12. There are a lot of posts about using aps-c lenses on the full frame bodies but they all seem to be about the quality of stills which is a different thing. I am considering getting one of the power zoom aps-c lenses for my a7ii for use every now and then but not sure about how good this will work in video mode and I have no aps-c lenses to test with. I will need to use aps-c crop mode for this. But not sure how the video quality will be from using just a part of the sensor, and if it is worth it. I have found some footage on youtube and vimeo but would like to see some uncompressed footage before buying anything. Have anyone found an uncompressed file to download anywhere on the web or have experiences with this for video use?
  13. has anyone heard if sony (or anyone) has plans to produce somehting like the RX-1 with a fixed zoom lense? that would be a holy grail camera for me, and i remember briefly reading about that as a rumor last year, but never heard anything again. i know the a7 is pretty small, but once you have a lense on there, that's not really the case anymore, however if there was something like the RX camera with a zoom, that would really be the only camera i'd ever need. i have a bad feeling that rumor about the RX2 zoom i read was just a dream.
  14. Shots taken with the Sony A850 with the Sony 70-200G F2.8 SSM during a private modeling session on an auto show. Due to cloudy weather thus I had decided to process the shots into B&W to compensate for the bad lighting. Spice things up with some red lips~=D Enjoy and feel free to comment~
  15. Last Friday I revisited one of my favorite architectural locations, the state Capitol building in Hartford, CT USA. It was built in the "Eastlake Movement" style in 1878. I last shot the interior with Nikon equipment three years ago, so with the recent acquisition of a Sony A7, a6000, and SEL1018 I set out to better my first attempt. I picked up the 10-18mm ultra wide zoom used from another user on a forum recently, knowing that it would be fully functional on my a6000 across the entire range, but most especially also useful in the mid-range on the A7 full frame. I found the "sweet spot" with the lens (no vignetting) at 15mm on my A7. You can see the great results with very little distortion in these photos. Enjoy! -Dave Everett
