Minolta AF 17-35mm F3.5 G Lens for sale

I've got a Minolta AF 17-35mm F3.5 G lens for sale. A rare beast and lovely lens. No scratches or dust in it that I can see. Cost me £850.00 a couple of years ago. Anyone want to give a good home and buy it?

Sony A800 - won't process photos

Hi All, I'm hoping for some advice. My A800 has stopped working properly. The settings work, you can turn it on set it up press the shutter and it sounds like it will take a shot, but then it doesn't process it. The red light just stays on as if it is doing something - but it does nothing. It won't ...

Re: Some sunset shots taken in Malaysia by a newbie... :)

I like the one from your balcony but the top and bottom one look a bit too contrasty or over sharpend for me.

Opposite of HDR

Now I like the modern HGR stuff - if it is well done but there is a bit much of it about at the moment. So how about a thread for the good old fashioned subtle photo. Here are mine for starters. Anyone want to share?

200mm lens

Hi Everyone. I'm looking for a decent zoom lens to 200mm for my A850. Don't want to spend a lot of money but it needs to be as really good one. Any ideas?? (Bear in mind my standard lens is a Zeiss 24mm - 70mm and my really long lens a Sigma 150 - 500mm so this is the quality I'm looking for.) :?:

Re: The Polariser and the wide angle lens

I'm in no hurry to spend a lot of money - sometimes I think it's all a big con. I think I'll buy a CPL and Heath Robinson away. I've missed having one since I bought the Sony 24 -70 lens and there is no substitute really. When I was using my Cokin P set I bought one for that as it was the same price...

Re: The Polariser and the wide angle lens

I think I'll put the ND Grad first and then the Polarized -but I never use both combined... The time I would is when photographing water. Sometimes I have daylight at the top of the shot which needs a grad. Oh and I've recently done some mountain shots which would have benefited from a polariser to...

The Polariser and the wide angle lens

Hi All - this may sound like a stupid question but when taking wide angle landscape shots where an ND Grad is used (I use Cokin Z filters now) Can I put the polariser on first and then the grad or will this cause problems with the edge of the photo. Is it better to buy a Cokin Z polariser (and chok...

Re: 82mm Circular Polariser Filter

I'm looking for one too but haent found one suitable yet. Cokin do a Z series polariser but it is about £250. I'm not that desperate.

Re: Cokin P Series Filter Holder + 82mm Adapter Ring

Hi sorry I'm late to this one but definately Z series. I've got a Sigma 150 - 500mm lens and the P series just doesnt go that high up. The Z series is good and slightly less pricey than Lee filters. Works well though.

Love the water in these shots. What shutter speed was it?
