Re: Rationalising my lenses

Thanks Greg and Olaf for your responses. To continue my public thought processes, I'll stress that the 16-80CZ, while possibly desirable, is out of my budget. The 16-105 Sony may be in my budget but the reported softness worries me a bit, while I'm not sure I'd be willing to give up the speed of my ...

Re: Hello from a new member in Brisbane, Australia

Welcome Alan from me too. I am sure you won't regret the 7D. It was my first intro to digital photography but I moved it on (to a colleague at work who loves it) for the a100 when it appeared. I now also have the a700 and although I am delighted with that, my 100 backup may well become a 7D again i...

Re: HVLF42AM flash compatibility

Hi David, Thank you for your comprehensive response. That gives me the confidence I need to go ahead and buy one in the not too distant future. As for the 5400HS, I have never done studio work so not sure I could justify hanging on to it, although the last time I saw one sold on eBay you'd have been...

Rationalising my lenses

Hi all, I’m going to inflict some of my thinking about rationalising my lens collection, and would welcome any comments and experiences anyone might have. Firstly, as I described in my welcome post, I have recently moved from a Minolta 600si to a Dynax 7D, which I purchased body-only. For most of my...

HVLF42AM flash compatibility

Hi, As I described in my introduction message in the Welcome, and Well Met forum I recently bought a Dynax 7D as my first foray into digital SLRs. Whether I keep it for the long haul, or opt to upgrade to a more recent Alpha when funds permit, I'm not sure, but I would like to have an eye to the fut...

Re: Hello from a new member in Brisbane, Australia

Thanks for the welcome David. I was pretty confident about the 7D as a good entry point to DSLRs for me, and the price was irresistable. I appreciate the comment about the 50mm lens - I was not aware of its potential to back focus. It may help me with my pending decisions about rationalising my curr...

Hello from a new member in Brisbane, Australia

G’day! I’ve just joined photoclubalpha and, as it seems polite to say hello before asking any questions, thought I’d say a few words about myself. I’ve been a keen photographer for about 25 years but have only just recently purchased a DSLR. Why so long? Well, although I enjoy photography immensely ...
