I admit that I am new to the Arca Swiss mounting system, but since they DON'T MAKE ONLY ONE SIZE, could the lens manufacturers maybe hint at the correct size or is that tribal knowledge. Bought a Desmond ARCA Swiss plate for my new Tamron 70-700  2.8 G2 and guess what? You guessed it! It is too large for my lens mount. Just wondered if they can give the exact specs like overall length, which unless I am having a customized 5,000 dollar camera case made to fit those exact specs , it wouldn't...

so my daughter was asleep in my arms and I had my A99ii with my sal70200g2 lens on it in a bag but it slid of my shoulder :(. Landed on the ground in bag no noticeable damage but now lens won't autofocus.  In fact I can't focus it anymore. The zoom is also stiffer. And when I turn focus it also feels like it is stuck.  I've owned the lens 4 months.  Any advice warranty won't cover that will it?  And can it be repaired?

Hello Forums, need advice on which set to acquire. I am debating right now between the new Tamron 150-600 G2 with a Metabones Mark IV on my A7RII or a Sigma 150-600 Contemporary with the Sigma MC-11 adapter on my A7RII. My main focus is fast AF, with image quality being second. The purpose of this set is to find a decent mega-zoom with a not-so-hefty price tag for me to shoot sports and wildlife.

Found this raptor hidden in the trees at the Bosque del Apache NWR in New Mexico last week. (I know this isn't the greatest composition given it's behind by several branches). The almost completely brownish color has me somewhat stumped. Perhaps a juvenile. Any ideas?

Has anyone noticed any difference in noise using the 3 separate modes of stabilization?  I guess even a difference in the bokeh in each mode?

First post. I have a M43 Panasonic Lumix G2 and recently purchased a lens on eBay that I want to adapt to the G2. The lens is a (Pentax) Asahi SMC Takumar 55mm 1.8 with a screw type mount. The lens also has a switch that can be set at MAN or AUTO. Before I purchase an adapter I need clarification as to weather or not a Pentax PK adapter is the same as an M42? Also should the switch on the lens be set at MAN or AUTO? Thanks for advice or comment.

The Owner's Manual for the G2 states that VC "may not perform sufficiently ... when shooting while using a tripod." Does that mean VC should be turned OFF when shooting while mounted to a tripod? Does that mean VC will not damp vibrations as effectively while mounted to a tripod? Don't you just love it when an Owner's Manual provides clear and unambiguous statements? --Landscaper

I've just purchased the G2 from buydig.com for $1099. That price for a new lens with a 1 year warranty was lower than the best price I could find for the same lens used. So, here's my question: Just how good is the IQ when the G2 is paired with its complementary 1.4 tele-converter? I realize its very good, but is it necessarily better than simply enlarging the (approximately) center two thirds of the image of the G2 without the TC? For me me that question isn't just rhetorical. I plan to use...
