  • Replied in solar eclipse
    I shot a solar eclipse, a few years ago, with my NEX5 mirrorless cam. I used a Tokina ATX 150-500mm 5.6 lens in Pentax mount with a solar filter that a friend loaned me attached. The filter was ...
  • That's a very good, sharp lens. I feel this image looks very good and I don't find the noise objectionable. I use three old macro lenses on my a77ii, with "no glass" adapters. Two in Pentax mount ...
  • Replied in Flash for A57
    Exactly what I did. Picked up a used HVL-42AM, for my a57, on ebay . It's a good flash and works great with my a57. I don't do a lot of flash photography, but when I do, this does what I need. I ...

  • Both are very nice lenses. I, personally, prefer the rendering of the Travegon in the first three sets of comparison shots. On the fourth set, I preferred the rendering of the Pentax more.
  • Just get the a68. I've been shooting, for a while, with an a57. It's a great camera and I really like it. That said, I'm saving up for an a68. The combination of higher resolution, micro focus ...
