  1. Does anyone have experience with this lens on the sony a6000. I found a used one for sale for $75 (Canadian) and apparently is e mount. Thanks!!! JSS
  2. Hi there, I have an original A7 for which have two FE Zeiss primes and the FE 70-200mm G. All works great, incredibly sharp pics. I also bought a A6500 body recently as well, mainly for use with the 70-200mm but obviously making it an effective 300mm with crop factor (I always felt 200mm was a bit short). The a6500 is clearly a good camera, but when I use the zoom lens, it is impossible to get a sharp photo. I have used the DMF focus setting and the camera is never able to get the image in focus. In fact, the focus peaking can't even find a sharp edge. I have tried switching off lens stabilisa
  3. I have owned a Sony Zeiss 24-70/2.8 SSM lens for about 6 years. Since I bought it (new), I have told myself the sharpness at the corners is normal. Maybe I have been trying to justify the cost of the lens, but I want to know what you think. I also want to hear form other SAL2470Z owners. What do you think of the lens you own? Does it look like this in the corners? (For full resolution version, click here.) This shot was handheld with a Sony a900 at ISO200, 1/500sec, ƒ7.1. I made sure to turn off any distortion correction in Capture One, and turned the sharpening down to zero. Note the smeared
  4. Hi all! New Sony A7RII owner here. I am looking for recommendations for a tele zoom to be used only on the A7RII. I am pretty flexible in terms of focal length and speed, and mostly interested in optical performance as well as price. Size matters, but it is not the most crucial factor. Basically, I wish to find a fairly affordable lens which gives a flat field and good, even sharpness across the frame, at least at f/8-11, preferably at f/4-5.6, too. The focal length range should cover at least 100-200mm, over 400mm is definitely not needed, and down to even 28mm range is a nice option
  5. I've been trying to figure out good audio monitoring options for the a6300. I still can't believe they didn't include a headphone jack, but I like the camera enough that I've been trying to work around this shortcoming. Here are my findings: Shotgun Mics The (now discontinued) Shure VP83F has a built-in headphone jack. Beware there is a cheaper VP83 (no F) that does NOT have a headphone jack. It's cheaper because it doesn't have the built-in recorder that the VP83F has. As far as I know, the VP83F is the only shotgun mic of this type with a built in headphone jack. I've switched to the VP
  6. So last night I went to a reading at a coffeeshop, and wanted to take pictures of the speakers and crowd. I knew it was going to be pretty dimly lit, so took my A7S for its high-ISO capability. I knew I was going to be alternating a lot between wider and longer shots, and didn't want to be swapping primes all night, so opted for a zoom. I don't have any native FE zoom lenses yet, so that left me choosing between adapting my (A-mount) Minolta 28-70mm f/2.8 G lens, or else going crop with my E-mount 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ kit lens. I wanted to be as inconspicuous as possible, since I was going
  7. For about five weeks I have been the owner of my first Sony still camera, the A7RII. I feel a bit like the Austrian emperor in the 'Amadeus' movie, who complained (about Mozart's compositions) of 'too many notes'. I complain of 'too many buttons' and 'too many menu options'. I am still learning, and I love it. My main lens is the FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS, a 10x superzoom. I have been a bit reluctant of buying a superzoom as I was afraid the quality would be disappointing. I was even thinking of using a new Canon EOS 25-105mm IS, my old one having been stolen. But reading some tests of t
  8. I'm just asking the above question because I am thinking that a F2.8 zoom whether it be in FE mount or Alpha mount will need the same amount of glass to collect the light to present it to the image sensor. So, the new FE zooms will be approximately the same weight as the standard pro zooms in the Alpha range: 1. 16-35 F2.8 Z 2. 24-70 F2.8 Z 3. 70-200 F2.8 G 4. 70-400 F2.8 G If that is the case, then using these lenses on the A7R2 size body would feel a "bit" out of balance to say the least. I think I have read somewhere that the shorter gap between the sensor and rear glass
  9. New toy arrived this morning! I'll be doing some real world tests for my own satisfaction mainly over the next few days...but thought I'd start with a size comparison including the Canon 2.8 mkii on it's metabones adapter Let the (unscientific) testing begin! Jon www.jonroberts.co.uk

  11. I've had the A7s since it came out in July. I have been using the Sony 28-70mm zoom. I've also adapted some old Canon FD's which give a cool look. They've been fine but the quality doesn't blow me away and I recently shot an event and because of the full-frame, it was very hard to get close ups that I needed. I was looking for a zoom to replace my 28-70 with a bit more range, more on the telephoto side. I have looked over almost every full-frame e-mount lens made which isn't that many. There's also a bunch of a-mount which I'd be open to adapting to the a-mount. I came from Canon before t
  12. Hi there, not sure what terms to search for, almost all of my searches are giving me results regarding the lens motor. My a5k which has seen light use over the years has developed an issue with the zoom in/out rocker which sits around the 'snap picture' button. Sorry, I'm a layman and don't know what the correct terms are for these things. When previewing an image, if I flick the rocker to the right, it zooms into the picture all the way. Now I have to start backing out to see what I want to see. As I flick or hold the rocker to the left (marked W on the camera body), the preview star
  13. I’m starting to stream shows using a Mac Pro to run Ecamm and zoom with my Sony 6300 & Sony 6000. Currently I use a 6ft usb cable that works great, but I want to get longer cables. I just purchased two 20 ft cables last week and the connection didn’t work. (To be honest, they were cheep cables... you get what you pay for, lol). Does anyone know the limitations of usb cables for connectivity or are their specific cables I need to buy. Anything longer than 6 feet would be awesome, but I’d love to go 25 feet so I can mount a camera to a gimbal or slider. Thanks in adva
  14. IMG_6645.HEICIMG_6645.HEIC Hi there, I'm trying to set up my Sony a6300 as webcam using the Sony Remote software to my Mac Book Pro. For some reason it's recognising the camera but not connecting. It seems to be stuck in the 'Connecting... USB' cycle even when I've left it for several hours. I'm using the USB setting PC Connect on the camera I'm using the Sony USB to B cable supplied with camera. So far I've tried the following; 1. Using another USB to B cable (although it is recognising the camera, just not connecting - see screenshots) 2. Reset camera to factory
  15. I have two questions about using Sony's E PZ 18-105. First if I zoom in on my subject, particularly when shooting multiple interviews at the same location - let's say there is a gap of time and I allow the camera to go into sleep mode the zoom is not longer framed correctly but has zoomed out. Because everything is internally there's no manual way to tape the lens. Is there a solution for this? Second question, using the lens for video, the zoom is rather abrupt is there anyway to set it for a much slower push in /pull out? Thanks for your help. jeff
