I have an a6000 and am considering upgrading to the a6500, but I'm curious about the stabilization. I know it is in-body, but is it in anyway dependent on the lens being used? Specifically, will it work with third-party lenses? I do a lot of shooting with Tamron's 150-600mm lens (with Sony's LA-EA2 adapter).
I've recently got the "Sony a7 III" camera body as a present. I'm a little bit lost when it comes to lenses and I would really appreciate some advice on which lens to get based on my needs (if possible).
I'm a painter, and once I finish my paintings I take photos of them, whether if it's for posting on art websites to sell them, social media to promote them, etc.
I also want to make art prints out of the photos I take of them.
I've recently started filming videos while I paint to show the process and teach other people painting techniques.
So, to sum it up, I'm looking for quite a versatile lens:
- Take photos of paintings once they're finished (to post on art websites to sell).
- Take photos of paintings once they're finished (to make prints out of them. I paint large scale and small scale paintings).
- To film videos of the painting process.
I've read that for taking photos of paintings it's better to get a macro lens, but I don't know how that'd work when I need to film videos.
I also heard a prime lens could be a good option.
Thank you very much for your time

Hi everyone. I'm pretty new here. I have a Sony A7III and shoot mostly outdoors photography.
I'm considering buying a 200-600mm lens but have also heard rumors that Sony is going to be introducing the Sony A7IV soon.
I have a 400mm lens that works for most purposes so the longer length isn't that critical and I'm wondering if I should save my money and wait till the A7IV comes out.
Has anyone heard when Sony expects to release that camera. If it's going to be fairly soon, I will probably hold off buying the lens, if not, well...
Any thoughts you folks might have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and it's nice to be here.
This is my first post. Just bought my first digi camera less than week ago (Sony a6000 with SELP1650 for 190€).
I did try to search but I did not find what I was looking for. If there is already topic about this feel free to link it here and I will delete this thread.
So I study communications and me and my friend have a plan of shooting a "0budget" interview/documentary about drugusers life on street.
Here in Finland is so dark during these winter months that I need lense that has good F-value. The current lense has f3.5 when not zoomed.
What is the cheapest zoom lense that you guys would recommend for my purposes? And how about some cheap wide angle prime lenses for this type of videography?
