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.

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 ?
The foliage can't be that grey,

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

according to Amazon.

Rimowa Topas Styealth cabin trolley ?
Now that alone sounds fair justification for the 8 grand
on top of the cost of a lens.
One teeny question, what is it ?
I have a nagging suspicion I need one.
