    Hello everybody,

    I was an active user over at m43 and Fuji forums for a few years, but life got in the way and I've been absent from online forum activities for a few months now.
    Moved from NYC to Raleigh, NC. Also, went on a half a month vacation to Hawaii, so hardly had time for forum activities. :D

    With the start of the new month, I got the A7S and I'm trying diligently to learn how to best use my new camera.

    So I've registered here to learn from A7 users.

    Thanks!

    :Welcome:

    I have the A6000, so I can't really help you with your A7
    The similarities between the 2 will be helpful information, which you will find tons here.

    My wife is from Syracuse, and we lived up there for over 20 years in the cold a$$ed winters. We moved to Durham and I recently bought the A7. I am still on a learning curve too. We ought to get together and do some shooting sometime. Welcome to the forum, and I'm fairly new here too! What lenses did you buy? I bought the 70-200 f./4.0 OSS and the 28-70 kit lens.

    Welcome to the forum taz98spin, think you will find that this is very friendly forum with some very knowledgeable people on it. A7s is the camera I want the most but can not afford, I just always seem to be shooting in low light. Cant wait to see some of your shots :D

    Nice! Yes, we should get together and try to learn about our cameras :D
    The only Sony lens I bought is the SEL70200G along with the Voigtlander VM-E Close Focus Adapter to use my M mount glass on.

    Thank you for the welcome. Yes the camera was expensive, but I'm shooting 2 big weddings in the next coming months, so it was an easy discussion for me. I'll post some images up later in the evening. Thanks once again :)

    Thanks :D
    I have placed my 16-35 in my cart several times, but haven't pulled the trigger on the pre-order yet.
    I feel like I need to get the wonderful 55/1.8 first!

    Oh, I would never sell the X-T1 or my trustily X-PRO1.
    I was thinking about unloading some lenses along with the X100S, since the X100T is about to come out ;)
