comment Can the Sony A7 II custom user modes be configured to not display on the EVF when selected?
@Vik - Begging for upvotes isn't nice, rather pathetic. If you care about rep the best way to get that is to be often on the site, read a lot of questions, and provide answers when you think you can add something useful. Since you work in a camera shop you should be able to help people with the use of their camera.

@Elendil - Certainly not continuous shooting mode. BTW, it would be a Real Bad Idea to reduce resolution for that; nobody would accept that, and it would cost them customers. Thanks for your thoughts.

comment What is considered high quality bokeh?
@MichaelNielsen - IMO the "shape" refers to the contours, caused by the diaphragm blades, while the donut is caused by unequal distribution of light over the highlights. It's an extreme case, but there are other cases of bokeh where the center is slightly brighter, for instance.

comment Can I use Minolta Maxxum lenses with Sony Alpha cameras?
Are you implying that lenses for Minolta by for instance Sigma or Tamron won't work?

comment What Windows software can I use to make a large photo collage?
I don't think you need 300 dpi if you're going for sizes like A1; 180 dpi will do nicely.

comment With all other things equal, in a DSLR, will a larger sensor produce a sharper image?
@Matt: couldn't it be that less noise is perceived as being sharper? After all, if the number of pixels remains the same corresponding pixels in both sensors see the same color.

@Rowland: sharpness and noise are two different things. You van have a noisier and less noisy picture while both being as sharp as the other. Noise causes deviation from the real color in individual pixels.
