In this very first Episode of Question and Answer with Jay, I’m going to answer a few very good, yet common Sony questions I get on a regular basis. I decided to go for the video format (YouTube), for this new series as it feels more personal to me. Kinda like I’m actually talking to you live pretty much 🙂
I spend a fair amount of time behind the scenes answering questions and doing re-search to try to be as correct as possible!! Obviously I’m human and far from all-knowing!! I also make mistakes, or I just might be wrong about something in general, because I’ve excepted it as fact long ago. This is a very common shared trait among us humans, and can often be confused with arrogance or stubbornness. I assure you that is not my intention if it comes across that way!!
This world is getting smaller by the day, thanks to the internet, and this website!! Why not take it to the next level I say??
I’m not a broadcaster by any means, so please bear with me as I learn to speak to the camera in my total amateurish fashion. It’s a new “skill” that is going to take practice like anything else. Tips and tricks appreciated for those in the know!!

Q&A With Jay – Episode #1 Questions
Hi Jay. What lens would you recommend to replace the SELP1650? I mean something with approx the same focal range and price.
A few more questions. If I use anything other than the SELP1650, will it have to be manual focus only?

And will the anti-shake and twilight hand-held functions work with the alternative lenses?
Can the NEX-6 do TTL flash?
Hope you don’t mind me asking these questions once again keep the good work up and a big thanks.
New Comments/ Questions from Youtube Channel
Thanks for the amazing Q&A work you’re doing. Nobody else helps users with these questions like you do. So thank you.
My questions to fill up your show ;-):
1. I didn’t buy the NEX-5n because of its slow AF speed. Then there was the NEX-5r with hybrid AF. But then I’ve read the phase detection af would only work with pictures not in video. Is that true?
2. How much faster is the AF speed at all in comparison to the NEX-5n?
Thanks for your help.
Best Regards from Germany
Awesome info, thanks!!
