Marc Galer on SonyAlphaForum I am of the firm belief that there is no such thing as ‘good weather’ for taking a photograph. Even a grey day with drizzle offers an opportunity to capture an interesting image. This was captured with Sony’s FE24240. A great choice as a walkabout lens when you don’t really want to be changing lenses when it is raining :-)
Two months ago Meike released the new MK-A7II battery grip for the new Sony A7II. And it’s now finally available via European and USA stores too:
Plenty of Asia/European stores are shipping it through eBay (Click here to see the list).
In USA it’s available at Amazon US (Click here).
Focus Tracking Differences between Sony’s E-Mount and A-Mount Cameras by Gary Friedmann
Gary (video on top): “As I mention in my blog (friedmanarchives.com where this video first appeared), there are a lot of people for whom this situation may never come up. My purpose with the video is to let people better understand how the cameras evolved, and to touch on the strengths and weaknesses of each platform. It’s always useful to know under which circumstances your equipment will hit its limits, even if you never push it that far.”
Bernhard: “I started a little blog about my recent switch from my Canon 5DMKiii to a Sony A7s: http://www.wimair.at/WP/?page_id=3760. It’s written a little “personal”, to tech charts – only real life experiences. And it’s german only, so it may not be interesting for you. As you sometimes post blogs of readers I thought you may like it.“
1) Sony is recovering quickly from the big crisis and is making money again 2) Despite the collapse of the fixed lens compact camera market Sony is still doing money with the Imaging Segment 3) Sony is selling less fixed lens cameras and less video cameras. And the forecast is that it will sell less cameras the next months. But it’s shifting the focus on high value models and the strategy seems to work. Therefore they still expect to keep making profit with the business.
And this is what Sony writes

There is no info about a particular digital camera strategy or future products. But it’s good to hear Sony is one of the few companies still making money with cameras :)
I shot over 900 pics on day 2 of the 2nd test between England and Pakistan last weekend and have just finished the web page. http://www.rtfract.com/engpak.htm I used the Sony A6300 and the 18-200 zoom for all the images. The high image rate is mainly due to using the high coninuous shooting mode sometimes. Shame […]

Hi, I'm willing to buy the Samyang 85mm F1.4 since I've read it's a wonderful lens, the only doubt I have about it is if I'll be able to easily and correctly focus my subject without AF. I know I'll get used to it after some time but I'd like to know if the camera […]
