Re: Sony where are your fast zoom lenses?

I do, do a bit of astro stuff I guess in the end it just means a longer exposure and a more laborious process is necessary to achieve the same results counting in minutes rather than seconds before you can take the next shot like this one of the Southern Cross

And you are better served with a larger sensor but an f/2.8 or even f/4 lens than a tiny sensor with 1.4. The shot you posted has very heavy noise processing. What were your settings?

Try an E-mount camera with either pancake lens (I have 20/2.8). You could even use ECU1 UW converter on either (turns 16mm into effective 12mm and 20mm into effective 15mm).
