Give them time. I strongly suspect that the 8-16 and 11-24 adapters are on the drawing boards.

I expect that Amazon hopes to capture the tiny amount of data it doesn't already get from existing strategies. Image recognition software has become sufficiently sophisticated that it doesn't take much imagination to believe that in a few years a computer will be able to identify make, model, cosmetic condition of car, and pump ads at you.

Nice-looking cembalon (the instrument). Not easy to play, I understand.

On Making 'Art': We go inside Sigma's lens factory article (190 comments in total)

It is wonderful to see the process, and to know that the workers find Sigma a good enough employer to stay there for their working career.

I think that there is a market for a geared head that is lighter than the 410, for the users of mirrorless cameras. I have to say that my tiny Sigma DP2M (8 oz) looks a little silly on top of the Manfrotto 410/Hejnar adapter plus Manfrotto 055 legs.The only geared heads out there are Manfrotto, Arca-Swiss Cube and D series, and the Sunwayfoto knockoff of the Arca D4 (not available in US).

Well, if the head is any good, Mr. Hejnar of Hejnarphoto.com will be designing and milling an Arca-Swiss adapter for the new head. His adapter for the Manfrotto 410 is pretty popular, and I can vouch for its quality. There just aren't that many options for geared heads out there.

In reply to:

WordsOfFarewell: Hm, I wonder how the lens will perform in the astro field.

Coma correction is incredibly important for astro, unless you like your bright stars at the field corners to have "wings" (distortion looks like wings).
