hi guys, i am mainly taking photos of my baby of less than 1 yr old now. I bought A65 with SAL35f18 more than a yr ago (for holidays), which i find to be quite gd for taking baby photos, I pretty much use the same lens all the time, and i treasure the relatively handy-ness of A65 + a short lens (SAL35f18).
But sometimes i feel that the images (jpg of the RAW+jpg) aren't sharp, and quite noisy. Furthermore, the lens isn't wide enough, so many times i had to push myself back to the limits of the wall to compose a shot. I mainly use the spot center focusing, but i foresee using continuous focusing with a larger set of AF points when the kid starts to crawl / run about more. And i felt that A65's AF isn't fast/accurate enough sometimes, especially in the darker scenes.
Will I gain much by upgrading to A99 + SAL50f14 or SAL28f28 (which is better, or something else)? I have considered Canon 6D and Nikon d600, they r cheaper full frames, but i prefer shooting with LiveView (AF via LiveView for Canonikons are slow right?) and the ability to turn/fold the LCD (for shooting baby sleeping on the bed / crawling on the floor, for example.
- AF speed / accuracy via LiveView
- Image quality (sharpness + noise level)
- Size of the camera body + lens (a65+sal35f18 was fine for me, can't imagine a longer/heavier lens)
- wider angle of view of the lens
