    Sony A6000 vs. A5100

    These two APS-C bodies are cheap right now and pretty small. The 5100 has no EVF but is really small. Given that I now have a collection of Sony primes, especially the 35, one of these might be handy. Any suggestions/evaluations/advice/mockery?

    Sony The truth about our birdfeeder

    I have for a long time suspected that those chickadees and nuthatches were pretty desperately hungry during the overnight hours. Finally, the truth is revealed. Here, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, we have proof that the buck does, indeed, stop here. The prosecution rests. Cheers, Jock

    Sony Samyang AF 85mm f/1.4 vs Sony 85mm f/1.8 for Sony

    The Samyang AF 85mm f/1.4 is price almost similar to the Sony 85mm f/1.8. Is it worth to give the "Yang" a go? What's your experience comparing these two lens?

    Apple trying to buy Sony Pictures

    Who cares, right? It did make me wonder, however, what could happen if Apple acquired an imaging division and let them use Apple's computational photography expertise. It probably won't happen, but I still wonder what such a product would be like, e.g., a fixed zoom large sensor camera with...

    Sony Showcase Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN images thread

    Slightly cropped, both taken with the 30 1.4 stopped down, lens firmware upgraded to the v03 and AF is about the same or faster than the Sony 50mm 1.8 OSS lens, which is not ideal for fast moving subjects.

    Sony 3rd party lens questions (distortion correction)

    Does anybody have experience with fully electronic 3rd party lens on Sony bodies, if a lens like for example the Sigma 30 1.4, provides embedded correction profile, does the live view apply distortion correction? I'm not asking about jpg or raw corrections, but the live view as that will affect...

Here she is.

    Sony solution for those struggling with TTL flash metering

    You might know those things that no reviews ever cover but can really make a camera system undependable for certain types of work, and when you ask, people tell you "that's what manual mode's for", or "that's just the way it is", it shouldn't have to be. And TTL flash has long been the worst...

    Sony A73 vs A7R2

    I returned my used A7R2 for various reasons and decided I’m going to get a new one. However, I can now look at the A73 for only $200 more. My thoughts are: A7R2: 1. I think I would enjoy the higher resolution. I like detailed images and crop space. 2. It is a bit cheaper. 3. Not too worried...

    Sony Hands on with the Sony A7R Mark IV and the 600mm f/6 G-Master

    While I was in the camera store yesterday, the Sony reps were there and brought with them some of the new A7R Mark IV. My impressions (camera body): The camera body is still not for me. The grip of the camera just doesn't feel good in my hands.. The physical controls are decent. Some tweaks...

    Sony Need advice from Sony users

    I've read people complaining about Sony's stop down focus accuracy issue, unlike Canon that opens up the aperture fully during AF, Sony stops down the lens during continuous AF if you set a smaller aperture value for capturing, e.g. studio work. The reason being Sony does this to avoid heavy...

    Hi Folks - A quick question - How do you recenter the focus point on an RX100 V, (or other versions), after having repositioned it for focusing that is not in the middle of the frame? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. . . . David

    I've been searching for a cheap replacement for my Voigtlander 40mm 1.4 Nokton MC.

I've been looking at other alternatives such as the Voigtlander...

    Sony A small, but significant observation using Samyang lenses ...

    For all users of the Samyang 35mm f/2.8 FE (at least if you have the latest firmware, version "03"): The lens focuses much faster and more accurately if you *switch off" Pre-AF on your Sony A7 II; I guess that's probably true for all Sony cameras, at least those with hybrid AF. I don't know why...

    Sony Do you think APS-C Sony has any future?

    Sony has been aggressively focusing on FF cameras, and so far it seems like it was the right call. Now the A6xxx series feels a bit neglected, not to mention the lens selection. What do you Sony shooters reckon?
