Re: RX10 looks interesting

RX10 is absolutely the bees knees, a killer piece of kit IMHO! I loved the test drive I took with it! Had it been just a smidge cheaper might have kept me away from my new NEX-6 EA2 combo. I was primarily seeking a camera that took good video but the high price and my addiction to changing lenses go...

Re: Sony 55-210 - How good is it, really?

I've got recently this lens as Xmas present, so I had only few photos with it. My expectations were not high but it's a pleasent surprise. OK, it requires lots of light and the AF is not that fast but the picture quality is quite good: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7329/11669014476_06f439d41b_b.jpg...

Re: That tricky 6 or 7 question

Someone on DPR claimed to get a Nex-6 from BBuy for $400?! Anyway, even at $600, it's a great deal. Let us know what you think of it. I feed mine fast memory cards, and I find it pretty responsive. Yesterday, I turned off the 2sec. auto-review and I'll see if that improves the perceived response ti...

Re: That tricky 6 or 7 question

So things are hotting up. Looks like the NEX-6/7 replacement will be an upgrade to the NEX-6 with 24Mp sensor and faster AF. m Do not expect to purchase this particular camera as I don't need 24Mp and I find AF fast enough on both my NEX-6 and 5N. Agree 100%, so much so that I bought a NEX 6 with k...

Re: SAR: A77 update coming, no A65 update

I certainly may have missed it but what is Sony's logic for changing the flash mount on their recent offerings? I have a Minolta 56 and a Sony 42 and find it quite troubling..... Does the A57 have the same mount as my flashguns? Considering an A65 or A77 but the flashgun issue is a real deal breake...

Re: SLT A57 thoughts and ramblings...

Maybe someone could do an A700 v A57 high ISO raw shootout Would be interesting to see. The 12mp CMOS is still good I personally felt it was perfectly ok up to ISO 3200, but not really beyond that. The 16mp CMOS seems to be able to deliver (with careful exposure) a half decent ISO 6400. Above that ...

Re: Alpha 100 versus Alpha 77

I am most anxious to see A 77 results posted with vintage Maxxum glass in front of the camera.....I wish you still had your beercan. Dropped my A 700 and torn between buying another A700 from KEH, switching to EOS and 7D or holding out for the A77. The large collection of beloved Minolta Maxxum glas...

Pop Photo really likes A77

http://www.popphoto.com/gear/2011/09/la ... ps-c-dslrs

I am still mulling over what to do about my busted A 700....switch systems, grab a used one from KEH or take a chance on the A 77.

This is an encouraging review.

Re: Hi from RI

Ouch - sorry to hear about the A700. At least Sony has some options for you to think about . Was seriously leaning towards jumping ship and selling off Minolta/maxxum/sony gear and moving to Canon 7D EOS / not impressed so far with what I read about the A 77/ A 65..... Now leaning towards a used A ...

Re: Hi from RI

Hi there! How did you weather the storm? No power for about 5 days.....other than a mess in the yard to clean up no damage. My double covered Mustang GT convertible survived unscathed too, which was a pleasant surprise. I was pretty concerned a tree would drop on it. Unfortunately tho my A 700 is b...
