  • Replied in back to A7...
    It's a pity that you no longer have the a7ll as we will now never get to the bottom of what was happening to you. Whatever, I do not agree that it was too much pixel peeping, the original first ...
  • Just to get this nearer to 100% right Any full frame E mount lenses (FE) can be used on a6000 Any Minolta, KM or Sony A mount lenses can be used and will autofocus quite well (like an a55 DSLR) ...
  • With respect, it doesn't sound as though you have been using you 5100 for long and you need to get a bit more experience with what you really need before spending more money (and lightening that ...
  • Whilst the details are interesting, I am not sure that there is anything new here. Photography has always been about choosing the equipment which meets one's practical limits, in F stop, shutter ...
  • You can get lots of opinions on the Minolta, KM and Sony lenses by going to Dyxum.com and looking for the lens database. Much more than I can say....except that 50 mm is a bit short for me for ...
  • A bit off topic, but on my V1 a larger card causes the camera to take longer to start up from off.  Start up time is one of my beefs with the camera, and I have now gone for all 8Gb cards with my ...
  • Hi Would you like to share the site offering the Gariz at a good price? thanks tom
  • Apart from the f2...and I don't dismiss this....is there any advantage over using a Minolta 135/2.8 af with an adapter? The 135/2.8 gets very good reviews on Dyxum, for good quality and ...
  • Replied in Nice!
    Welcome and keep the images coming! tom
  • Replied in Sony or Nikon?
    This is what this is all about, isn't it? I think only you can decide whether you find the Nex5 with 70-200FE (or the others which you posted) more satisfying for your purposes than the N1/30-110 ...
  • Thanks, all, for advice.  I will leave LR program and catalogs etc., on the SSD until I get space problems and then experiment a bit tom
  • Created discussions Using SSD with LR 5
    I have just upgraded my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga (I 7 Haswell) by adding a 256gb SSD for the system and a 1Tb WD Black for the data. The boot time is now fantastic! Can anyone advise whether there are ...
  • I have just ( like today) installed a Transcend 42 mm M2 SSD in my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga.(I7) for W8.1 i bought it with minimal disk, knowing I was going to upgrade to 256 SSD and 1Tb WD Black HDD ...
  • Does it support V2? tom
  • Exactly, except that the CX format does distinguish itself at the tele end.  Unfortunately the wider end is well below the performance of, say, a6000.  What is needed is a lens which gives back ...
  • Horses for courses of course, but a native macro is not high on my priorities.  The real issue with N1 is how to compensate for the poor low light performance inevitable with the small sensor, and ...
  • Agreed, this is a well balanced and thoughtful review of the N1 cameras...I don't have a V3 but it sounds right based on my V2 s. There are some very nice shots...those would do for me, never mind ...
  • Replied in Yacht Race
    Good stuff, keep them coming! You have illustrated two of the problems with taking yacht racing photos, often the action is a long way away, and you just have to manage with the light which is ...
  • Too much Christmas spirit (or wine) tom
  • Replied in Tony
    Now I see your profile and library...should have looked before I answered you! You have lots of birds and butterflies which we don't get in HK and you must take overseas.  I used to take ...
