    Sony My autofocus situation (looking for a solution)

    Hello, as I gather experience from my time with my Sony a7R II, I am slowly learning its quirks and limitations. At first, I was very impressed with the AF performance of the camera but as I use it in more varied situations and with different lenses the experience is getting more "colourful". I...

    Sony Another aftermarket battery thread

    It seems there's a new trend by manufacturers to save themselves $0.50 on a $2,000 camera by not including a charger. People weren't happy when the A7-IV was released without one, and it led to the normal discussions about whether to get a Sony or aftermarket for those who don't want to charge...

    Sony A7C vs. A7 iv

    I'm looking at getting a more modern Sony body, mostly for better handling and speed, especially tracking and C-AF. The A7C would be a cheaper alternative and the AF appears to be great, but the A7 iv is a tempting commination of upgrades and a few extra MP doesn't hurt. Any opinions on this?

    Sony Stupid mistake

    In early spring when I was first able to get out and play with my new A7 IV, things were fairly limited to backyard and around the neighborhood.
