Re: Minolta Ringflash vs Sony Twin Flash for Butterfly Macro

for butterflies I'm not sure I would use either. what lens?. Butterflies are pretty big animals and you don't normally need high magnification to show them. if your using a 100mm macro and getting close up detail shots then the ring flash for sure but if your using a 200mm zoom or along those lines ...

Re: 28-100mm : Opinions, Please?

I got this lens with a NIB dynax 5 kit for 50 bucks. Shot a roll of film through the camera (fun camera really) but never even opened the lens up. Might give it a try one day and see what it’s like

Re: Spot metering... god I need help!!!

I a scene where there is a huge diference between the brightest bright and the darkest dark spot meter will give you a wide variation of exposure.
