Hey guys
I'm looking to buy a wide-angle lens for my Sony A7 (ILCE-7) but I'm getting super confused by all the lens specs.
The Sony A7 has a 35mm Full Frame sensor.

I currently have this lens
http://www.sony.com.au/product/sel2870

The wide-angle lens Sony recommends on their website is this one
http://store.sony.com/e-16mm-f2.8-e-mount-prime-lens-zid27-SEL16F28/cat-27-catid-All-E-Mount-Lenses

If I understand correctly, that "wide" angle lens will be pretty much useless because on my 35mm Full Frame camera it will effectively be 24mm. Which is only slightly wider than my existing lens (28-70mm.)

Or, am I reading the specs wrong?
Any help would be great.

I could really use some help

Hello all, I did a short photo session today with my camera (Sony RX-100) and I took photos in Manual mode, Shutter Mode, Aperture mode etc... and most of them are like that one when I copied them to the PC. 

They had no issues on the camera itself, a little earlier in the day I transferred a couple to my phone via USB and they didn't have any problems. Now those very same photos are screwed up like that one. 

Note that this one appears in blue in Google+ but was green on my PC. Some are yellow or red. I'm so disappointed :( 

Are they gone or is there a way to save them? 

Have you seen that before? Is it faulty hardware or something else? 

Thanks for any input you may have.

Cheers!

I can took about 200 photos to every memory card and keep changing cards if they fill up. It's easier to handle less photographs and you can let computer todo the uploading while you keep shooting elsewhere. I have many small memory cards to achieve this.

I'm using this habit especially when I'm working in event photographing.

Woke up to find out my flowers have finally bloomed! I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out the proper composition I want. Any suggestions/recommendations for a book on the subject (that of composition)?  Most of the books I've read seem to be about the rule of thirds, I want something a bit above that level.

Hi everyone, I'm new to the community so I thought I'd say hello and I basically need some advice. I'm looking for a compact systems camera under £300, but I have no idea which one I should get. It will mostly be for video work and some photo work too. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Shooting through protective netting at a baseball game

Any advice (other than to move) for shooting through netting at a baseball game?  I take my kids to minor league baseball games and we have seats about 7 rows behind home plate where there is protective netting so we don't get killed by a foul ball.

I'm using a Sony NEX 5-R with a 55-210mm lens.  If I zoom in, I can't seem to avoid focusing on the netting with the players out-of-focus in the background.  If I pull back to under 80mm, I seem to be able to focus on the baseball field, but not specifically on the player.

Any tips or am I just stuck with this situation unless I move my seats?  Thanks!
