  • Well, it's not $100 more at least not in Europe, and definitely not with the PZ16-50. And for not being good for beginners, why not?. It's as limited as the 5R, and most people won't need a...
  • Nope, and I'm not planning too. I already have the IR remote for my Alpha 550, I'm not going to spend that amount just because Sony didn't put a IR receiver on the 3N.

    Excellent post, mate. And I agree with a 16-135 PZ lens. I'd but those in a heartbeat.

    My Tamron 18-250 is F6.3 at the long end (like the 55-210), for about half the focal distance (around 125 or so). So, it's still a 13.5x zoom vs a almost 4x. The Tamron 70-300 USD has nothing to...

    The Zoom range has nothing to do with size. My Tamron 18-250 is what?, 13.5x?. Well, it's smaller and lighter than the 55-300. Both made for APS-C. Also, the Tamron 200-500 is just 2.5x zoom and...
  • Thank you, but that's not the correct answer, because I was comparing it to the DT 55-200, which is also APS-C, for the Sony Alpha mount. And the 55-200 is shorter and a bit lighter. Anyway, I got...
  • Thanks. This is the answer I was waiting for. I didn't account for the distance between the sensor and the mount of the lens. In the picture, the length is about the same in the A37 with the 55-200...
  • Yes, I know. But why can't they make them shorter?. Make them longer when you need it, but shorter for carrying. That's the point of making a compact body if the lens makes the camera as long as...
  • Created discussions Why is the 55-210 so big?
    I got a NEX 3N with the standard 16-50 lens. I already have an Alpha 550 with some lenses, but I like the portability of the NEX. However, if I want to take a picture with more than 50mm of focal...
  • On the field I use my Galaxy Note II with a 64 GB card with about 40 GB free. Using an OTG USB cable and a microsd reader, you can transfer the files (or via WIFI). On the hotel I use my computer...
  • Replied in Different use
    Exactly. If you're not going to go FF, then go for the 55-300 DT, which is not only cheaper, but a lot smaller and lighter than either the 70-300G or the Tamron USD. That's what I did, as I'm not...
