Fit a 40.5 > 49 stepup ring and use a clip on Minolta hood for the MD 28mm 2/2.8/3.5 - it works well.

Re: Physical size of Nex E mount lenses

Well, it definitely exists! I think it is OK for its price and size, not great, but OK for its intended market.

Re: Software and firmware updates

Tried to add a comment to the article page. I can input the text but hitting the Post Comment button nothing happens. Logged in OK and using Firefox. What I was trying to add was: The SEL1855 and SEL55210 update files are exactly the same size as those issued last year. Guess they have just done a c...

Re: SanDisk SDHC 45MB/s UHS-1 16GB

Thanks for the tip David.

Mine arrived today - same Extreme 45MB/s UHS-1 at £15.99

I paid 10x that for my 64Gb card!

Re: Nikon D800, Canon new lenses etc

Calumet say the sensor is 'newly developed Nikon FX' - it may still be Sony at heart and not a Nikon-own development. Thom Hogan says "The sensor itself is a Sony EXMOR-derived one, which is mostly good news. Since the sensor has the ADC circuitry on-board and this results in low read noise an...

Re: Sony quality control problems

It's good to see SD cards catching up with CF ones and Sony getting the attention.

Now if only they had put 2 card slots in the A77 .... but I won't be negative ... :wink:

Re: Sony quality control problems

SanDisk trusted the Alpha 77 enough to use it at their big London event last week, because the Alpha 77 is the only camera made which can use their new ultra fast SDXC cards - clearing the buffer in 18 seconds after a 12fps RAW burst, instead of the 45 seconds reported for SDHC cards of the fastest...

I was very impressed with the Nex 7 - only slightly bigger than my Nex 5, but with the wonderful viewfinder. The controls are amazing too. Told it won't be available until November. Not sure if they had a 55-210 there.

Sony Alpha Live event - Saturday 24th September

Originally this was going to be held at Sony HQ with all sorts of extras to photograph such as stunt riders etc. Unfortunately some emergency building works got in the way and the event had to be rearranged in a new location. Sony refunded everyone who had booked and then offered the new event for f...

Re: dPreview A77 samples

Just a quick point Pako, I'm not "recommending" them - just pointing out they are there with raws.

We seem to get the same poor samples and furore with every major Sony release!
