Suave: Good news for Sony users. They've waited long enough.

You are nitpicking. This lens is aimed squarely at FF E-mount camera owners, nobody else. And Sony had little to with A-mount development, it was all Minolta.

Was not that an A-mount lens? And in that case what does it have to do with E-mount cameras? And please don't tell me the stories about how it can somewhat focus with an adapter.

Since the first A7 obviously.

Suave: Ok, someone explain it to me - if the pulse is 1/63000 how does it help you to sync at 1/8000? I thought for proper illumination at high shutter speeds the pulse needs to be longer?

Ok, so it's just regular multi-pulse sync just with very short pulses then?

No 4k, no peaking, this is like a guide to self-inflicted wounds.

Thanks, Google!

@Jesper, but the thing is, I did not sign up for Google Photos, I signed up for Picasa, signed up because the desktop app allowed me to sync my local folder to online storage, and access uploaded images with one clicked. Google Photos is something I've been forced into.
Yes, I would love it if I could produce an embeddable link using their share button, but it does not happen - it may work for facebook or twitter, but I don't have either. The point is, my writing platform can't embed directly from Google Photos, so I am forced to use full urls and it is now a PITA.
Flickr is easier to work with, yes, it produces links which only needs some minor editing. Perhaps I should take the plunge.

@CaPi, that's done on purpose.

If Sony wanted a "good priced" 85mm lens in E mount they would have made it.

Thanks, Google!

So I shorten google's own url using google's url-shortening service and _then_ paste it into a http file? Sounds like a real time-saver.

Is Google becoming the new Microsoft, or what?

Rooting times are pretty much over - ever since mobile payment came in vogue locked bootloader has become the norm on anything sold by carrier.

@cplunk - yes, you need to be logged into the play store, however my impression is that you are automatically logged into it when you set up the phone. Actually this is the real issue with Play Store - that you can't log into it without logging into your Gmail etc. at the same time - I had to create a whole new account because of that.

Why would you need to "configure Google account" to install an app from play store?

Milvus - so Milva. Google translate claims that it's Latin for "vulture".

On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707 (136 comments in total)

My first digital camera. Absolutely loved it. Replaced it with F717 later and like it even better, despite memory stick, batteries that crapped out after a year, and later sensor issues. Image quality amazes me to this day, and if Sony kept working on improving it I'd have probably owned one of its descendants to this day. Sadly, they went in a different direction with F828 and that was it for me.
