FS(US): A700 with Grip

I am selling my A700 and vertical grip. Asking price $500 for both. $450 for camera only. I hate to see it go, but it is not getting used after I got A900. If interested please PM me. I can ship to CONUS, add 3% paypal charge, I'll bear shipping. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-k5wLFAQuTI0/UE7bee...

Re: Wide and normal lens for A900

Between 28-135, 28-85, 35-105 which one to pick based on image quality only? If I buy 17-35 I am covered extreme wide part to 35mm.

Wide and normal lens for A900

Recently bought an A900. Widest I have is 50 1.4. It is good normal lens but beauty of full frame lies in w-i-d-e. So planning to buy a wide and normal zoom. I don't want to break the bank so, my options are Minolta 17-35, Minolta 35-105(old) Minolta 20, Minolta 28-135 Between 28-135 I have many cho...

Re: A700 vs A900 vs A77 autofocus

Finally I bought A900 and A77 both. I plan to keep both and sell A700. I think I got rid of the miss-focus issue of A700 by blowing air near to AF sensor area. I think I had dirt or something there and my A700 is working fine now. With A900 and A77 I get AF micro adjust feature and all my lenses are...

Re: A700 vs A900 vs A77 autofocus

I moved from A700 to A850...shortly after my 2nd A700 which I also liked very much. IQ was a huge improvement, and to me that still is the most important feature. The AF system both was the same. There was however a huge improvement in AF speed and accuracy after moving from A850 to A77. However, t...

A700 vs A900 vs A77 autofocus

I have A700, using it for almost 3 years. I am quite happy with it except Focus accuracy. Even with my 70-200G and using central double cross AF point in AF-A or AF-S, I miss-focus in broad daylight(3 out of 10). This is worse with other lenses like 50 1.4 and 135 1.8. Using outer AF points is more ...

Re: Sony vs Nikon Translucent tech

I would say from the Nikon diagram and features that this system relies on CDAF from the sensor, not phase detection, and otherwise behaves much like a Canon Pellix. I don't actually see why or how it could be patented. David I agree with you. I couldn't find a reason to keep the mirror in the ligh...

Sony vs Nikon Translucent tech

Pics are in sonyalpharumor site. http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/will-nikon-go-translucent-too/#comments Now in this diagram, when mirror is down, how does the AF sensors get light. If light is partially fed to OV...
