Hello Everyone!

I have a Sony A6500, and I would like to go to the next level. So I want to switch to a full frame Sony, which is good for videos and photos too and have a good autofocus system and good in low lights. Which model should I buy, which is not too expensive, but good enough for years? There are a few on the market, but I can't decide, which one is good for these mentioned priorities. Can somebody offer me good one? 🙂

 

Thank you for the answers!

I guess you're looking for e-mount so you can use your current lenses? The crunch specification you give is "not too expensive". 

New, the Alpha 7 series full frame cameras start at £1000 with the A 7 II (body only). 

I have not used one, but the specs appear to good for HD Video, 24 MP stills and good AF. 

I think low light capability is partly related to the quality of your lenses, partly related to how well the software deals with noise  and then the quality of the sensor.

Hopefully users of different A7 models can give you more insight.

A couple of points from my experience of moving up to Full frame. I needed to upgrade my wide angle lenses because the APS-C lenses cropped out the corners of photos. Secondly, used gear from reputable camera shops or specialists like MPB can be very good value, allowing you to add a quality lens or two for what you would pay new.

Good luck with your quest.

      Hello, 

      I'm curious to know if these two lenses can be effectively used in FF bodies without invoking crop mode. For instance, in my Pentax APS-C setup, I can use my 35mm and 50mm lenses in compatible FF bodies (film and DSLR). There is very slight vignetting, but I can get a full frame view out of them.

      Has anyone else tried these two lenses in FF mode?

      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

      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 !

      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!
