Re: Sony A58 "plastic lens mount"

Maybe the true reason for the plastic mount is that now the metal goes to the ugly METAL hot shoe ! :lol:

Re: Sony A58 "plastic lens mount"

Why did you choose a plastic mount? We have been using plastic mounts to downsize and lessen weight since the α57. That's not true. They have been using plastic mounts since a55/33. Here I'd guess the rest of their 'answers' are of the same informative quality, a.k.a. plain garbage. Maybe is mistak...

Re: Sony A58 "plastic lens mount"

Some Q/A about the plastic mount: Is the camera inferior in terms of performance and durability in comparison to the metallic mount? We have verified that there are no issues in general use.

I've re-chipped Sigma 75-200 in similar way with chip from broken Minolta 28-80 set to 80mm and AF works (especially good at 200mm), there is and some Aperture Control. ;) http://ww...

Any hints about Sigma 20/1.8 DIY Re-chipping ?

Hello, I bought one of these little beauties :D Sigma 20 F1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF RF But unfortunately the serial number begins with 1xxxxxx and it's not recognizable by A900 and KM 7D :( , So there is no AF, and I can't control the Aperture that is even worser. However on the old Minolta 7000 all w...

Re: α560/α580 are coming

I think that a580 makes the a560 pointless. The 16mp looks superior.
