      Answer

      Unfortunately, the a7 series don't come with flashes. If you purchase the a7s, you won't need a flash since the ISO is so high.

      Answer

      No, you definitely need to get another lenses if you are looking to blur the background and get good bokeh. I hear the Sony GM 1.4 is good and also the Zeiss Batis F/1.8. If you can't afford those than the Sony 85mm F/1.8 is a less expensive option.

        Answer

        Hi! The term ‘full frame’ refers to a full-frame sensor that’s the same size as an individual frame of traditional 35mm film. The advantages of full-frame sensors over smaller digital camera sensors, such as APS-C or Micro Four Thirds are numerous, which includes shallower depth of field. -Anthony

          Answer

          Hi, the main difference is the absence of the mirror, in mirrorless cameras, used in DSLR cameras needed to process the image. This allows for a faster image processing time and lighter wieght. Thanks_Mitch

                    Hi mebucko, Yes, it will fit. However, the angle of view will be narrowed down to that of APS-C size if the lens is not designed for full-frame. -Anthony
