    Sony The new Wakizashi (Katana)

    Looks like someone just usurped the Fuji 90mm as the new Wakizashi (Katana) of sharp short teles. https://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2019/03/sony-fe-135mm-f1-8-gm-early-mtf-results/ Roger's Comments: As is sometimes the case, I got access to a couple of pre-release copies of the new Sony FE...

    Eye/Face Detect Test - Canon EOS R, Fuji X-T3, Nikon Z6, Sony a9, Sony a7 III and Sony a6400

    Found this Youtube video. thought it interesting. They tested the eye/face detect functions of the following cameras: Canon EOS R, Fuji X-T3, Nikon Z6, Sony a9, Sony a7 III and Sony a6400 It is 20 minutes long, but if you scroll through the timeline bar, you'll see the thumbnails fear each...

    Sony Tamron 28-75 A7II

    I've had a 7ii for awhile and never really tested the CAF. After picking up the tamron I gave it a try at a high school basketball game. I was very impressed at how accurate, quick and silent it was. There was no hunting or pulsing and lens performed great. Here's a few shots, nothing noteworthy...

    Sony Moving to Sony

    I currently have a bunch of m43 lenses and two 5 Mk II but I am not satisfied because of the quality of the images. Not that they are bad, but rather I find the ones from Sony to be far better with more colour rendition, sharpness and so on. They just please me more to the eye that's all. 1. I...

    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...

    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?

    RX100 - it's going back...

    Currently sitting around a pool on Ischia, my thoughts turn to toying with the idea of something tiny and high quality. m4/3 is not for me, so in today's market that means Sony. I'm happy with a 2x zoom, and value lens speed over reach. I want decent jpgs with the ability to capture raw for...

    Asking for a friend

    A friend of mine has a Sony A5100. She recently found a canon film camera with a couple EF autofocus lens. I know they're not the best but I told her she should get an adapter to use the lens on her sony. I doubt there would be any AF function with these old lens but is there any apeture...

    Sony A7 as a second camera

    The Sony A7 (the original) is pretty cheap right now. The 50 1.4 is also pretty cheap. Is the combo worth it as a low light non-action camera? I have no experience with Sony FF so i’m looking for advice from real users. I’ve already looked at the old reviews.

    Ancient lens on Sony A7II

    I always buy weird old lenses I find at flea markets, yard sales, etc. I must have bought this one lens I have decades ago and kept it in my "junk box". While going through these lenses lately, I discovered I had an old lens, that I probably paid five dollars or so for. Looking it up, I...

    Picture A7M2 with Canon 17-40L Glass

    Looks a bit unwieldy, but actually suits me for balance. I can tuck my left elbow into my hip, grasp the belly of the lens in my left hand and I use back focus setup which also helps to grip. Auto-Focus seems as fast as on a Canon. Manual focus works well and the peaking is very clear. Sony...

    First Outing with A7M2

    Not my finest.......just getting used to the handling. Took the A7M2 Canon 17-40L into the City to test it out. Didn't do much in the way of street work and it was latie'ish when I got there so light wasn't at its best. I also felt quite exposed lumping the kit about for street work. Oh well...

    Got me an A7M2

    Just fell for the Sony A7M2 at Wex in London. With cash back it is just about £800 which, to my mind, is great value for a full frame camera of this age. It joins my A6300. I have ordered the sigma converter to put my Canon 17-40L lens on it. It works, I tried it out in the store. Hopefully...

    Worth Considering ? Sony RX1R

    Hi, Is the now 'old' RX1R a good used buy compared to other similar full frame compacts / I currently use a Pen-F with various lenses and wondered if the extra pixels would make a real difference, I don't mind the fixed lens as I feel it would provide me with a different way of looking and being...

    Sony RX100V Aperture stuck

    My Sony RX100V seems to have a stuck aperture. As in, it's stuck wide open. I'd researched this before, and someone suggested resetting the camera, and that seemed to work. But it's back again, and a reset and even initializing the camera didn't fix it. In full manual, if I adjust the aperture...

    Raw, not Compressed Raw
