Ok here goes,
My kit isn’t great although I’m not a professional either.
Camera - A7
Lens - 55mm prime and 24-105mm G also the paper weight 28-70mm that ships with A7 bundle.
The plan is to pick up a A7iii and a 100-400mm and add it to my pack. - I hate changing lens’s I’m a dust magnet.
Not interested in video overly. Drone is pretty good with that I guess.
Im heading away to the far reaches of North Western Australia and think that my current setup will be too short and not really keen on getting up close and personal.
Questions I have are.
1. What should I buy first A7iii or 100-400mm
2. Should I ditch the A7 or leave it as redundancy/spare with the 55mm mounted semi permanently as it gives a great pic.
3. Is my lens 24-105mm a waste on the older A7
4. Is the A7iii my answer?
5. What are the cons with what I have and will there be a noticeable difference with the A7iii?
Look forward to your help
Is there any ETA for shipments of the Sony FE 400 mm f/2.8 GM OSS (SEL400f28GM)? Sony's website indicates that online retailers B&H, Crutchfield, Bedford, & Focus have "Preorder "availability, while Adorama denotes, "Backorder". Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
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.
Using the lens on a A7riii body and aperture won’t adjust (just reads F—) and lens won’t focus. I receive an error message indicating lens is either not attached correctly (it is) or not compatible (it’s a Sony lens). My other lenses (70-200 and 50 mm prime) work perfectly. Any advice? Thanks in advance for your time.
My 70-300 lens on occasion produces images that are not in focus when set to 300mm. I tend rule out camera motion because I am shooting at 1/1000 sec. and resting the camera on a solid rest. At first I thought it was because many of my earlier out of focus shots were wide open at f5.6. So today I tried shooting a sign that was 282 meters away and shot at 5.6, 8, and 11. The middle one, f8, was clearly out of focus. I am generally satisfied with this lens on my A7r2 camera, especially at the shorter FLs. The lens is generally sharp, and very easy to carry and use. Please see the composite of the three images. All are enlarged to 100%.
Has anyone else experienced such issues with this lens or, with the A7r2 camera?
