  • Sony A5000

  • August 31, 2015
  • By: Solo

Had an older Panasonic model and traded it in for the Sony A5000 for traveling. The Panasonic had an issue focusing in dark places. Didn't want to spend the extra few hundred for the later models A5100 or A6000. Despite the 4 extra MP on the newer models, the camera has sufficient resolution even when shooting at higher ISOs. Found the 16-50mm lens a bit too basic for vacation. Ended up trading the lens for a Tamron 18-200mm. The equivalent lens from Sony with the E-mount actually cost more money. With the long lens the stabilizer performed reasonably well. The only issue is the focus tends to be slow. Normally would have gone with a 55-210 lens but changing lens occasionally the sensor and the back of the lens would pick up dust easily. The number of lenses you can get for the E-mount is limiting. On the other hand, you can add an adapter to use full-sized lenses for Alpha SLRs.
