Well I have a massive problem after spending about £4.000 on Sony stuff because I used to have a Minolta have I done the wrong thing. Speaking to different people my camera is never going to be as good as a Canon or Nikon plus my £1000 50-500 sigma is near rubbish and is all the other sigma and tamron zoom lenses I have. Is this the case and should I try to sell and replace the lot and if so with what?November 23, 2012 at 4:49 pm #2124
PAUL where equipment is concerned I keep clear of Sony. Panasonic is the only firm that Leica teams up with -is there a better recomendation–look at my posting on the Panasonic wide shot to 600mm taken hand held stood in my back door on dodgy legs.November 23, 2012 at 10:40 pm #2128

Andy Katz and Matthew Jordan Smith are two of a number of well-known professional photographers that use Sony cameras.
How important is the camera? Here’s a short video of one of Japan’s most famous photographers, Daido Moryama, at work. He uses a small compact; some of the images are in his current retrospective (with William Klein) at Tate Modern. And the Guardian’s Dan Chung shot the whole of the Olympics on an iPhone.
As Ansel Adams said, the most important thing about a camera is the twelve inches behind it! 😉November 24, 2012 at 7:56 pm #2132
Nikon, Canon, Sony, Sigma, Tamron and Panasonic(Lieca) all make excellent lenses and camera. Several club members use Sony and produce superb images. You’ve only got to look at Dave Barton’s sharp portraits that were taken on his Sony. What lens did you use for tour bike shots? They looked very sharp to me. I agree with Mac, the photographer is more important than the camera. All modern digital cameras can take excellent photos in bright conditions, but higher spec cameras come into their own in dull conditions where you can increase the ISO and not get bad grain.November 24, 2012 at 8:02 pm #2133
I know what your both saying, but i am sure that my lenses are letting me down in some way.November 26, 2012 at 12:44 pm #2160
I’m a Sony user and have been for a number of years now. I initially went for a Sony because of the easy availability of old Minolta lenses. I started with an A100 and have now progressed (modestly) to an A33. Have been very please with both cameras.
So, my advice is to ignore the Nikon/Cannon snobbery that you find and enjoy your Sony!
Sony make the sensors for Nikon cameras to start with! Plus I firmly believe that they are one of the most forward looking of the manufacturers at the moment. Just look at the reviews of their recent cameras for proof!
