Re: A mount s/h lens prices have "bombed"

I used the 70-300G and it was decent but not great. It was better to handle than the 70-400 but the IQ wasn't as good.
The 80-200 always got good reports.

Re: Another big closet clearout

Glad to hear it's all working fine and actually getting used after sitting in a cupboard for 9 months. Yes I found the old lenses worked well with it.
Happy new year to you too.

Re: Sony a77iii rumor

...and they wonder why people like me give up and defect to the dark side....

I see the prices of the E mount stuff and it's quite scary. Not a system I am interested in but some nice features.

Re: A mount s/h lens prices have "bombed"

As you can see from my for sale post, quite a few of my lenses were secondhand. All were reasonably priced at the time but yes I can see recently they are worth less than I would otherwise expect. A great time to experiment then :) In my A mount era, I bought the following (Minolta, KM or Sony) seco...

Re: Another big closet clearout

A big thank you to Barry for a very quick transaction and the extra payment over and above the agreed price for the A99 and 28-105. A true gentleman.
A very Merry Christmas to you all.

Re: Another big closet clearout

Hi Barry, The wheels turn but are stiffer than they should be. They still operate the selected action such as aperture and shutter speed. To be honest, I haven't used it since I put the post on. I kept the 17-35 for extra wide shots but have since acquired a Nikon 10-20 which was a bargain at £190 n...

Another big closet clearout

I'm offloading most of my full frame kit so have a few items for sale. No photos as yet but if anyone is interested in any particular item please let me know and I'll sort some images. Konica Minolta 17-35mm f2.8-4 in very good condition with clean glass, no dust or mould. Bought secondhand (from DK...

SOLD SOLD - Sony 100 f2.8 A-mount (UK only please)

It sold for £269 on eBay. There is still a decent market for A mount glass. I'm cleaning out the cupboards again and came across the Sony 100 f2.8 macro I bought secondhand from LCE some 5 years ago. I doubt it's been on the camera more than 5 times and is in mint condition complete with caps, hood,...

Re: AfterShot Pro and Lightroom

I know a lot of people are relying on cloud based storage but I'm not a fan. Our broadband is poor and I can't even get a mobile phone signal at my house let alone 3G or 4G so for me, relying on good data transfer speeds for hundreds if not thousands of files just does not interest me. Wonderful for...

Re: Bought a Dell U2415 monitor

Just discovered that it's a U2515. I have the monitor plugged into the laptop HDMI port. As far as I can remember I just right click the desktop and pick Display Settings. I set screen 1 as the laptop and 2 as the monitor. Might have clicked a few things but I just fiddled till I got what I wanted, ...

Re: Bought a Dell U2415 monitor

Think that's the same model I bought. I'm very happy with it. I use it dual screen with the laptop so I can view the photo folders on the laptop and LR on the monitor.

Re: Over warm pictures

Overall, I liked the Sony images other than being a little flat and found the raw files easy to adjust to my liking. The Nikon ones are sometimes more difficult to edit especially in overcast conditions.
To simulate Sony colours I usually need to warm up a bit.

Re: Loch Duich

Dr Harout, for me Andy shows off the north west area very well, it is our favourite area of Scotland. If you ever get the opportunity try to avoid the summer as the whole area is invaded by trillions of small biting insects called midge. They make life a misery. Easter is a good time to go to avoid ...
