  • I use most 35mm RS 2.0 100mm 2.0 200mm APO 2.0 and less frequently 80-200mm APO 2.8 All very good and for such old designs on par with my Sony CZ 24mm 2.0 and Sony CZ 135mm 2.0.
  • LR is needed for the raw conversion. And Gimp is udefull for further pp and effects as photoshop. There is a Gimp version with a photoshop similar user interface. Just google for it. And there is a ...
  • Could also be a problem with the internal battery. I had the same problem wit a fully charged battery. After a day the camera worked again. But I had to set the date date and time again.
  • The co-operation of Minolta with Leica was more than thirty years ago. Minolta has never bought the Rokkor lens series. It was their own lens series. The name Rokkor meant that the lens was own ...
  • Not easy to find. But I use a minolta af 35mm 2.0 and a minolta af 100mm 2.0 with the la-ea4 adapter. Both lenses are excellent. With good color, bokeh and sharp wide open. Their compactness ...
  • Photoshop is not a raw convertor, but the ACR plugin is. I use ACR or Lightroom, DXO an C1 and can obtain similar good results with all three.
  • Sony CZ AF 24mm 2.0 Minolta AF RS 35 2.0 Sony CZ SSM 50mm 1.4 Minolta AF 100mm 2.0 Sony CZ 135mm 1.8 Minolta AF Apo 200mm 2.8 Sony AF Apo 300mm 2.8
  • You must of course interpret in a metaphorical sense. Only fundamentalists should, in accordance with their nature, interprete literally. And decide that they are all the same chickens.
  • The black hole has always existed. In some cultures they call it Allah, or God and in science simply a black hole. Let's call it the first rule of the Tao of Creation. That eternally existing force ...
  • Yes. But in the context of the Mohammed cartoons. If I make an image of Mohammed it does not necessarily mean that I make an insult. Maybe not even an opinion, but just a picture. However, ...
  • Just the same as where the egg is coming from. From the other side of a black hole.
  • Replied in BurkaPiggy ?
    Is that the reason for the existence of the burka? To hide her pigs nature.
  • Many younger muslims seek a more open and democratic society to fit modern times. That was the driving force behind the rebellions in North Africa, Lybia and Syria. The old rulers and religious ...
  • Not all muslims are the same. And in the middle ages islam was enlightened and tolerant. Granada and Sevilla were cities where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived together in mutual understanding. ...
  • But we respect them in their Arab world not trying to convert them. And they can live in peace in our countries but should respect our culture and not demand that we convert to muslims.
  • A jester at the Court could laugh with anything. Also on a vulgar way. Often he said at a hard and insulting way the truth. Yet the fool was not a subversive but a supporting figure at the court. ...
  • A belief is only really after you have overcome all doubt. And to be able to overcome doubt it should be possible to question and criticize every aspect of that belief. A faith that is imposed with ...
  • Long ago the Middle East was covered with forests. Pigs lived in those forests and were used as food by the local population. By the growth of the population there was a switch to an agricultural ...
  • As someone beheading. Women and children rape and enslavement. Massacring entire villages in the name of faith.
  • Which came first? The big bang. And that was a broken egg.
