  • Sorry, I have Sony a900 with standard OVF, not the a99 with standard EVF.
  • A...thanks to the ongoing experimentation of folks like yourself and Tom the GXR will never die!  I always use the ClearView LCD viewer/magnifier for focus magnification and peaking on the GXR in ...
  • To see ALL (and only) full-frame lenses for the a-mount, first go to dyxum.com, then select "lenses," then "a-mount," and last set the "format" filter to "full-frame."  The other two options for ...
  • Better yet...some day stop by at Ricoh HQ. Ask them the embarrassing question: "Does Ricoh still make cameras (other than Pentax)?" Have your hubby film the entire encounter on your Ricoh GR ...
  • This link might help Tina to get started in the right direction to download a copy of LR that she has purchased on a DVD.  This link to a question and answer exchange on Amazon in the reviews of ...
  • Interestingly, the dolphin researcher who just now posted his work here used the exact same combination of Sony a77 and Sony 16-50! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54566634
  • I also have a Minolta 28-135, and find it to be admirable on the a900, as it is a lens built to provide complete sensor coverage on full-frame cameras. Likewise, Kurt Munger reviews the lens as ...
  • Thanks for the quality photos.  I too am a new owner of an a77 (released in 2011), along with an a900 (released in 2008).  A problem for "late adopters" like us is that the world (and this forum) ...
  • Sean, at first I was going to ask you if both of these shots were taken on the same beach!! Now, that would have been some trick! In any event, thanks for taking the time to take these and to post ...
  • What to me is amazing is that today one can find "EX" condition used a900 for less than $1000, and "EX" Sony accessories like the C90AM vertical grip and F58AM external flash for roughly half of ...
  • I can well understand how your 28-135 survived such a fall functionally intact, owning one myself.  In fact, having that lens plus another lens also intended for full frame (FF), the 70-300 G, ...
  • Indeed, your picture well illustrates qualities achievable with inexpensive vintage Minolta zooms on the a900--sharpness, colors, and negligible CA/CF.  I would have loved for you to have made the ...
  • Sean, I remember maps of the North Pacific and  the so-called "Ring/Rim of Fire," showing all the known spots of eruptions.  Of course, Japan, being right over a Tectonic plate collision zone is ...
  • Sean, I just happened to awaken very early and on-line for a short time when your latest message came through.  Yes, the details about the many hikers trapped on the mountain by the eruption were ...
  • Sean, I hope that you were well away from the eruption of the Ontake volcano in Nagano prefecture today!
  • Replied in Holy ****
    Checking "the Bay" discloses literally hundreds of 50 1.7 and Beercan lenses available at prices between $40 - $50.  From my own past experience, one can only get about 40% of prevailing resale ...
  • Sean, your pictures from Japan are always a welcome sight.  I assume that these buildings are now store-fronts, and that the sidewalk items are taken back into the stores at night? This is reputed ...
  • I acquired an a77, which I consider to be a major upgrade over my previous a57 in every way except perhaps in high ISO performance.  "Like-new" a77 bodies can now be had for about $500, or for ...
  • Jimmy, enlarging your photo to original size helps better to explain the origin of the lake's name.  It appears to be on its way to becoming a swamp.  Is it indeed as shallow as would be indicated ...
  • Fascinating to read the history of this small Danish island in the Baltic Sea.  During late Roman times it was home to a Germanic people known as the Burgundians, who after many wanderings and ...
