  • I actually agree with this. Lots of people are called trolls for invalid reasons. In some cases though, no!
  • Yes and I have also been called a troll in the Sony forum for recommending M4/3  around the same time as being called one in the M4/3 forum for suggesting Sony.....what I suggest depends on what ...
  • Your posts are available for all to see.
  • Yes, a TROLL post is a troll post. I disagree with many posts from many people, doesn't mean that disagreement makes for troll posts. Brand bashing (like you do against Sony), is a different thing ...
  • Really, I guess I see it VERY different. So you think it ok to post under multiple accounts at the same time? To troll about a particular brand? Repeatedly? What exactly is it I am trolling ...
  • What would have been the point of saying more? I could care less about you or how many names you have had or if you have been banned or not ETC. With regard to OG, well the rules say you can have ...
  • Well actually I can think of three at the same time (probably still have them too but I cant be bothered looking)......if they are still active/useable....that is against the rules isn't it???? I ...
  • It goes to honesty.... It has everything to do with a post about honesty made by someone proven to be dishonest! Depends what the post is about though doesn't it. For instance if the intention of ...
  • yes, especially when you have only had what five or six? In certain circumstances, yes......for instance when someone is just trolling about cameras they have no intention of buying. Or when ...
  • So YOU claim this is about honesty????? LOL LOL LOL LOL That really is precious. While you seem a lot less of a troll lately and even made a few sensible posts (though not so much when it comes to ...
  • Is for people who wont buy Sony because of this, must be limited to only a few brands as clearly they wont buy a camera with a Sony sensor now would they......No Sony, No Pentax, a lot less Nikons ...
  • I don't think you would win this argument with many people. This was a very dumb thing to do by Sony (or at least if they wanted to do something like this they should have made it very clear at the ...
  • No A7 or A7R is going to be quieter than the A6000 with the 50 1.8 OSS. The A7s with silent shutter mode is quieter but not stabilized with the FF 50mm lenses. IF you are happy with the 5mp size, ...
  • ANY manual focus (or AF used as MF) 300 2.8 will be nice. I have an old Tamron Adaptall 300 2.8 and love it. There are 1.4x and 2x converters to match it. It is one of the smallest and lightest 300 ...
  • That does look good. Seems a great lens for the price too. Maybe not for me (My FD L 85 1.2 is my favourite lens). One question though, can you use flexible spot AF with this lens (or any lens with ...
  • I don't need AF with a 300 2.8 (I am very happy with my old Tamron adaptall) ........just want to try it if I can with the ancient 1.6x Sigma multi- converter........I used to love using the old ...
  • Thanks. I have not really looked at ultra wide lenses much. The 12-24 might be something for me to try if I can find one cheap enough. I have a feeling I am going to have to do that with the old ...
  • The A7 is not the stealthiest of cameras but then neither is a DSLR (any DSLR) for the most part. Even though I got the A7 to use with nice manual focus lenses I am more and more amazed each day on ...
  • Sony A6000 with 50 1.8 OSS (I got the 50 m1.8 OSS this week brand new for $210 Australian from a major chain physical store)  and maybe something like a Sigma 19 2.8 (can be found under $200 used ...
  • I have to say I don't see too many Sony users hating Canon. Between most brands it seems more like indifference with few real HATERS in most.....there do seem to be a few more anti Sony trolls ...
