Re: Why does dPreview do 'Recommended' ratings?

I'd say whatever they call their ratings, highly recommended, more highly recommended, a bit recommended etc, what is missing is consistency. If they want to rate cameras, they have to establish a set of criteria (much more than what they show in the conclusion) and give points from 1-10, then the f...

Re: Hello From Istanbul !

merhaba yildiz!

welcome and hoş geldiniz :mrgreen: from France!

Re: Which Sony Alpha kit lens?

I went for the Sony 18-250 a few months ago. I needed a walkaround lens for those days when you just grab your camera and have no time to change lenses. Like it a lot.

Re: Your best A700 tip & trick?

Thanks to all for your ideas. Yesterday evening I did my first test. Wow!! What a difference. The shutter feels so fast :shock: . I could sit here til the end of the week and press the shutter again and again just for the fun of it :D . Coming from the KM5D, the display is just unbelievable, as is t...

Your best A700 tip & trick?

Well, maybe I am just posting this to tell you I finally got an A700 :D , battery is charging..

Anyway, my background is the KM5D, any good tips for an upgrader? Any fundamental changes I am not yet aware of? Any traps and pitfalls to avoid?

Maybe I should just go out and shoot :wink:

A few from me...

Actually I don't know if I'd have selected these pics for posting, but these two get the most clicks on my (still tiny) flickr account. First one is in Cannes, KM5D with Minolta 28-135.
