  • Was this a native mirrorless design or an Slr lens port?

    • +2

      Native design for mirrorless A7 series full frame system
      Excellent focus performance, better picture quality than Tamron 28-75mm f2.8

      • Thank you, it looks to be that way, especially given it’s size parameters…

    • -1

      I am not sure what exactly u r asking, but is compatible for any sony emount full frame camera or apsc

      • Native mirrorless design lenses are generally smaller than a SLR lens port.

  • What is the usual price? And where is it ending? I'm moving overseas soon so I can only buy after the 1st Oct to get gst back

    • Usual price is more than $1200
      Not sure about the expire date, but this may be the first time dropping less than $1000

      • Damn it…I'm tempted to get it but I might risk it to get the 10% get back.
        I am holding on the a7iii or a7c for the same reason.

        Thanks

        • The A7iii is a great camera which I own… but it’s about 3 years old at this point.
          Logic would dictate to wait for the A7iv if you can, I’m sure it’ll be coming next year although I don’t recall any specific announcements from CES, Covid has shifted things around.

        • I recommend you to choose A7C otherwise you prefer a better resolution with A7r4 if you are about to use it for travelling. 150g lighter is a lot for a whole day’s walk

          • @zcipod: Thanks. Do you own one?

            • +1

              @ets27: Not yet, currently I use A72. Planning to get A7C this Black Friday or so. Hope to get the price lower than $1800 :)
              It’s time to replace my A72+55 1.8 to this 2870 + A7C, starting with the lens

  • Can someone recommend me a good dslr or mirrorless camera under $1000 as a beginner?

    • Sony A6000 kit or A6400 body will be in that price range.
      Sure there are other but Sony has the best mirrorless ecosystem and options.

      I'm a Sony user but for your budget you might want to check Fujifilm X-S10 or something similar.

      I started learning photography with professional camera by Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III; very easy and ultra portable. Had 12-40 f2.8 Pro lens which made it a great combination. Learnt a lot and have good comprehension on photography science now. Every one was pushing me to full frame but a very experienced photographer advised me to start with micro forth third system. TBH if hadn’t done that, I didn’t have in depth understanding on m4/3, APSC, or full frame. Learnt pros and cons of the system during 1 year of using the gear. Amazing jpeg color science and reliable hand-held shooting for longer exposure shots are what you can expect of Olympus whereas coverage angle and bad quality of electronic viewfinder bothered me a lot. I am aware of quality of high-end m4/3 cameras such as Panasonic and Olympus EM1&X but decided to extend my experience with Sony full-frame system. What I meant here is that I have in your position a year ago and was quite confused what to choose, even didn’t know photography is my hobby or not and sure there would be some selection factors like appearance in these situations for absolute beginners; firstly wanted to go with Fuji XT4 which was ~$4000 for body only because it was new and now is ~$1800; just imagine how much could I lose if wanted to change it now or if I didn’t like it. The whole camera with entry level lens cost me $700 and still I can sell it for $4-500. So I believe wise decision would be going for cheap entry level gears and spend a lot of time to learn and experience shortage of some features to understand the physical concepts then going to upgrade and spend more money when you’re sure about your choice. Sorry to be long just thought maybe worth sharing my personal experience and story maybe could help someone in my position of last year.
      Cheers and enjoy your hobby whatever it is.

      • Thanks a lot, really appreciate it.

      Canon 5D or 6D series - Start with full frame so you don't have to keep upgrading. So many good pro lenses on the 2nd hand market too.

      • This comment assumes that full frame is necessarily an upgrade. There are many pros for smaller sensor sizes. Start with what works best for you.

    • My vote would be to look for older intermediate/pro level gear on the used market, prioritising a bundle with quality lenses. Camera bodies have already been more than good enough for most situations for a decade, so you might as well prioritise glass and buy into a mount with good and affordable lenses.

      I saw a 5dii with 24-70L for $1100 last week, that sort of thing would be good if you knew you wanted a larger DSLR and the benefits/detriments that entails. M43 also tends to be very affordable used, I'm sure you could pick up a EM5 ii + 12-40 2.8 for under 1000. Both those systems have plenty of cheap but good lenses available used to play around with too. But there are plenty more secondhand bargains to look out for: A7, X-T1/X-E2, D600, etc…

    • Thanks for the suggestions everyone, I found myself a Sony a6000 and sigma 30 mm f2.8 lens for $400 bucks.

  • I got the Tamron 28-75, I missed the 4 mm a lot more than I thought I would have from previously using a 24-70mm

  • +3

    EBay dcxpert $989.82 with eBayplus 22% off code

    • That's got to be close to the best price ever!

  • Thought it was the 24-70mm Art for a second there and got excited. Will be sticking with my Tamron. 24mm would be handy though :*)

    • +1

      Yeah, lovely 24mm, slightly better performance, just a little more dollars, but double the weight
