ebjerke: But WHY? I have not seen anyone explain WHY Sony chooses to do this. What benefit is it to them or what benefit to they THINK it offers to continue to do this even though so many complain.

Speed.
Sony is using a perfectly acceptable tweak
probably until their next CPU implementation. A lot of people complain Canon is now years behind several curves, do they pay any attention until they're good and ready ? Face it, if you're the one in a thousand who likes to poke around in the shadows, buy the Nikon, no one is stopping you.

fotojoaobritespt: I preferred the focal length to 35mm equivalent

Thanks for that. It's very distracting.

Those furrowed brows were only a small indicator of the tsunamis
raging within trying to find ways to twist it all to political advantage.
The lack of real emotion only confirms what the mug punters
have known all along, they DON'T care.

ETTR ?
Well trolled, DPR.
Since when is noise the primary reason for selecting exposure level ?
Aesthetic considerations have nothing to do with exposure, right ?
Just get the noise right and it's a masterpiece every time.
Bizarre.

In reply to:

zeratulmrye: I bought a remote control from China, it works good with at least 5m range (didn't try any longer distance so maybe it's even better than I thought) and also support T mode. The only shortcoming is that you can only trigger your camera from the front side, I guess that's where the IR receiver is.

Oh...and it cost only 1 dollar.

Well, if you're going to use mega-dollar solutions like that,
you may as well do it right.
Fold some kitchen foil into a 20mm wide strip,
secure it to the lens with a rubber band and bend it to suit.
You can now trigger from behind the cam
as the reflector works perfectly to bounce
the signal to the I.R. sensor.

Ron Poelman: You just so want to believe; but no,
here we have another heavy (780g) lens with no tripod thread.
All meant to go on a 365g body.
Unbelievably, a Handshake is lighter than this one.

No, I'ld rather be adjusting the CPL, or the aperture,
or focussing, or any of that other photo stuff,
rather than holding up a lens
As for the long time viability of the A7 mount;
I'ld rather not risk it.
Sony had something worrying them when they
incorporated them into their LA- adapters.
As for doing it wrong, I'll refer you to the principle of moments
and continue to hold it as far out as I can.

12345ccr: the cut in half joke gets a tad repetitive after the 4th time...

Shame really, as they have hordes of 'em.

No really; where's the colour ?

It's NOT corrosion ! It's an interesting patina you can only get on Leica.

Nope, she's a HK fan. The Canon thing could be an issue, but.
