I used to have the Sony 11-18mm to use with my A700.

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

The current official version of darktable is still 2.6.2, but lots of people are using what will probably be called 2.7.0 when they release it officially. Someone posted this thread about the Windows version with link to the latest build: darktable-2.7.0+1477~g7740b7a8c-win64: https://discuss.pixls....

Re: Photos with evidence of the photographer

I like this topic. :) Henry, what's the story behind your last photo??? :D I am still not sure how I happened to be in that photo. My recollection is I had brought my Minolta X-700 with 50mm f1.4 to the office to take a few photos of Japanese co-workers and to walk around at lunch around Yurakucho ...

Re: Future of A mount

I now use a Canon 650D with a an early Ultrasonic Canon 28-135 with steady shot, although it was a 35-mm lens it gives excellent pictures in cropped. Its a simple second hand system that works extremely well in the cropped arena and I much prefer the colours to Sony. My Panasonic DMC FZ 330 Bridge ...

Yeah, lots of people do. I have a Minolta MC and Yashica/Zeiss adapter, but I don't really use the lenses. Some people love to though and collect old MF lenses.

Re: Future of A mount

Okay, it sounds like your problem is solved then. In my case, I use m4/3 because of size/weight mated with good results. I use both Olympus and Panasonic lenses and bodies since they are interchangeable, but for you sticking with just Panasonic still gives you plenty of body choices and lens choices.

Re: Budapest to the Black Sea by boat and coach (Warning some nudity)

Nice photos!

I have been to Hungary twice, but haven't tried a Danube cruise. Should do it someday. I want to visit Romania too.

Re: Future of A mount

It seems like there are lots of used A99, A77, A900, A850, etc. bodies available for pretty good prices. If I wanted an A-mount body to use with my lenses then I would get one of those. I still have my A700 and A100 packed away with the lenses far away. There just hasn't been all that much new devel...

Re: Future of A mount

Of course I have no special knowledge or insight into what Sony is thinking and I don't make predictions about these things since I most certainly don't know, but it seems to me that there is a good likelihood that Sony will keep the A mount alive for a long time. How many A mount lenses are out in...

Re: Future of A mount

I got a Sony RX100 last year: http://www.photoclubalpha.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9124 It had 2.0 firmware, but the latest firmware for download is 1.10. It is not the same as the 2.0 firmware for the RX100III, etc. See the thread. Something seems to have changed and it may be some of the in...

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

Yes, I agree. That is why I still pay for the LR/PS subscription. I bought ACDSee Pro 9 a few years ago and thought it was good. I also bought Aftershot Pro 1 a long time ago and thought it was fairly good too. Both were a lot easier to use and understand than darktable. I tried ASP 3 a couple of ye...

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

I have seen several recommendations for the series of darktable tutorials done by Bruce Williams. Here is the first one:

It looks like he has several dozen on youtube.
