  1. Green Sea Turtle caught resting on a bed of seaweed on the North Shore of Oahu. Shot on a NEX-6 & FE28mm Lens. #sonyalphagallery
  2. Hi I'm new to this forum and I have a few questions I want to ask. I'm currently on the Canon 400D with the 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS STM. I'm thinking about switching to the Sony A6000 with the 16-50 and 55-210mm kit lens. My problem is: Would adapting my current 55-250 onto the A6000 body affect the auto-focus performence by a large margin? I'm on a really low budget (as you could probably tell from my current kit) and I can spend preferably under 100 or at most around 150 USD on the adaptor. Also, am I better off just getting the 55-210 sony lens and selling the Canon? around 700 USD is all I have for a complete kit so yeah... Would appreciate any advice.
  3. From the album: Fletcher8

    A day out with the Sony A7Rll in the Yorkshire Dales photographing Red Squirrels. Used Sigma MC-11 adaptor with Canon 70-200 f/2.8 lens which works well for this subject, you just have to be patient and wait. Some great afternoon light made the trip out worthwhile.

  4. Hello. New to the forum. Amateur but enthusiastic photographer. moved from D90 with 18 to 200 zoom to A6000. Added the 18 to 105 zoom. Do a lot of wildlife photography and need something longer. Looking at the 70 to 300 g master. concerned about the weight on the A6000 body and the lack of a tripod mount. Previous experience with the 18 to 200 nikon was that more reach was needed. Would appreciate any comments and recommendations from the forum members. Thanks in advance....
  5. First of two remarkable examples of how well the Sony A9 can track a small subject even through distracting or confusing backgrounds. Both shot with a Sony FE 70-300mm lens (I don't have the new 100-400 yet).
  6. Hello, I have had my NEX-5 for the past 6 years and have loved but I am now looking to upgrade to either the 6000, 6300 and 6500. With the recent release of the 6500 there is a huge price gap from the 6000 to the 6500. Has anyone had hands on experience with both of these cameras and can let me know pro's and con's? With that there seem to be a lot of newer lenses which are only compatible with the 6500 (though I am not exactly sure how accurate the Sony website is on this front as some lenses seem none compatible to any camera!). Which lenses would people recommend for the someone who loves being out and about taking shots of landscapes and nature (both from afar and as close as one can get/dares!)? Thanks, Stuart.

    Watchful

    I got a nice reflection with this image and I assume it was because I took the shot behind glass with light streaming down from outside. Taken with a7r2 and Canon EF 75-300mm

    Walking through a wilderness preserve with an a7rII and FE 70-200 f4. Notice the road creates a narrow berm with no barrier between the bodies of water.
  9. I purchased the AT-X 90/2.5 Macro after a lot of research. At the time, there were no short-tele Macro options for the Sony E-mount system. The Tokina seemed like the best option. I recently sold it to replace it with modern optics but I did enjoy this lens very much while I owned it. I used this lens with the Fotodiox Canon FD- Sony E adapter. Build Quality One of the things I like most about this lens is it's construction. It does extend when focused at its minimum distance, however it is quite small focused at infinity which makes carrying and storing the lens convenient. It's made entirely of metal and the coating is durable. It's light, despite the metal construction but very dense. Focus is smooth, the aperture ring is clicky and has a good amount of resistance, and the bayonet mount is secure. All around it's a well engineered optic. Also, I think it looks cool. Much cooler than some other legacy lenses. It's a vintage lens with the right amount of contemporary aesthetic. Looks are important to me. Features The macro capability is limited to 1:2 which is great for most wildlife, however it will be limiting if you intend to shoot very small insects or other tiny things. Still, the resolution of the a6000 is good enough that cropping to 3000x2000 px (50%) is not an issue - and gets essentially 1:1 magnification. The manual focus ring is the best mechanical feature of this lens. The Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM was what I used before I switched to Sony. The AF is quite good but for macro it's almost useless and the weakest feature of these modern AF macro lenses is their manual focus ring. They have a short throw and are very imprecise and just generally feel terrible. Focusing manually with the AT-X 90 isn't frustrating or tedious - it's lovely. Image Quality The color, resolution, contrast, and out-of-focus aesthetic is very good. Chromatic aberration is present at f/2.5 but is almost completely gone at f/4. Sharpness at f/2.5-4 is good; f/5.6-f/11 is very sharp. Diffraction is noticeable beyond f/11. I'll let the photos say the rest. *These photos were shot in RAW with Neutral picture style, processed in Lightroom for color and exposure correction only. Contrast and sharpness are set to default. Pay attention to high contrast areas and the out-of-focus highlights here: This image is strongly backlit. Note the retention of contrast: This sample shows how details like spider's silk and the fibers on plant leaves are resolved: I just like this photo: Pay attention to the quality of background blur and subject sharpness: This lens is not great for astrophotography. Note the chromatic aberration around stars: With foresight and practice, this lens can work well for sports events, despite manual focus only. I think this image is at f/5.6: Verdict I like this lens. As far as legacy glass goes, this is by far the best I've used (among several). It holds up well compared to the Canon 100mm f/2.8 USM with the exception of wide-open chromatic aberration. If you like old-school lenses or also want a good macro lens for your 35mm SLR, I highly recommend this lens. Pros: Compact Good image quality Very sharp at 5.6 Good build quality Good value on used market Precise and smooth manual focus High contrast Cons: Chromatic aberration wide open Not so sharp beyond f/11 Only 1:2 magnification (0.5x) Not quite as good resolution as modern macro lenses Lastly, take a look at the attached image. It is backlit and has plenty of fine detail as well as some bokeh. It's a challenging scene for any lens and I think it does very well. Note that it is compressed to fit under the 1000kb attachment limit.
  10. Yes I have used Sony A7R for bird photography I know it's not that good for wildlife and sport photography due to slow AF speed and bad object tracking but I wanted to use the 36MP sensor for more cropping ability All photos were taken using : Sony A7R + LA-EA4 adapter + Minolta 600mm f/4 APO G lens you will get great image quality using this setup but it will be harder to catch birds in flight Check my photo gallery here Virusx.org for more photos Cheers
