QUESTION

Sony A6000 w/ Sony 70-200mm F4 G

Hello everyone, Am really interested in a good quality glass for my A6000 for shooting birds and some animals in parks. Image Stabilization is a must and it seems only option for the moment is the 70-200 F4 G recently released. The quality of the 18-200mm just isn't good enough. Has anyone seen any review of the lens on this body or any thoughts / photos to share?

I just ordered my A6000 and have Sony 70-200mm F4 and Zeiss 24-70mm lens on the way.  I can't wait to test this out next week. Continue Reading

I just picked mine up today and only had about 15 minutes with some birds at a pond.  My first impressions are that this will be a very fun combo.  I haven't completely figured out the A6000 yet as I just got it as well but they seem very well matched and about as fast as anything I have shot before. Once I have a bit more time with it I can elaborate but the A6000 definitely focuses the lens much faster than my A7R. Continue Reading

I am very happy with the A6000 + FE 70-200 combo. I use this combo mainly for birding/animals. Here are some of my photos: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3672563 The A6000's APS-C 1.5 crop factor = up to 300mm magnification considered by some the minimum for birding. However if you are close enough to your subjects the fast FPS/AF and OSS is very effective. For birding I use A6000 settings posted by zackiedawg here : http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53573659 and have saved these to my memory bank. I had to get over the initial size and weight of the FE 70-200 ( being accustomed to Emount lenses only), However after a few hours of usage has fast become a favorite combo.Note: The white color of this lens actually proved to be beneficial under the hot sun ( cooler to the touch). I wasn't expecting that. Continue Reading

QUESTION

Are the new Sony full frame FE lenses compatible with existing NEX cameras?

I'm in the market for a premium lens for my NEX-6, and so am interested in whether I should be buying FE lenses instead now, so that if I ever decide to upgrade to full frame Sony mirrorless in the future (which I think I probably would like to do), I wouldn't have to buy (as many) new lenses again.

Yes, FE E-Mount lenses are backwards-compatible with NEX E-Mount cameras. Continue Reading

Can't see why not.  All it will do is to crop the centre of the lens down to the aps-c  image circle.  Much the same as the many ex-slr MF lenses have been doing since the NEX was knee high. Buying new apc-c image circle lenses from now on seems more than silly unless the buyer is intent forever sticking with aps-c format with the E mount. Continue Reading
