Goodness, this closure story is a shame.

Perhaps I should get myself a spare 7 for parts - when my Built-in flash module got damaged, the repair estimate was 3 times the price of a used 7... good thing that the rest of the camera works fine. As for the question, I'll go for the 7 any day. I don't need the tank-like build of the 9, and the ...

I liked your B/W, David, PS or not.

And I would've like to have the lens calibration feature in A700... V.5 maybe? :wink: However, one question - I remember that you've mentioned an S-curve several times in the past, including in a reply where you've explained how a guy in alamy got better sales by using a dramatic s-curve. So, do you...

Well, the A900 were on "normal" NR.

I'd guess in "Off" and noise ninja on the chroma, the picture would have been different. Would've liked better In-Camera NR, of course, but if I should judge from the amazing improvement of "off" mode in A700v4, then the "off" in the A900 should be very interesting inde...

Here's a patch

100% crop, and the reason: Zeiss [email protected], 1/[email protected]/10, ISO 200, "Interpolation artifacts, soft or lacking definition". http://img512.imageshack.us/img512/155/interpolationartifactsmc5.jpg However, I do feel a bit stupid. I just checked 3 other rejections, and found out that somehow I've ...

A700 (v.4) and Alamy

Copied here on the advice of henry Richardson, after I've posted the same question on DPReview. And It's my first post here - but sure not the last, though! Recently, I've started to get too much rejections from alamy, most under "Interpolation artifacts", and sometimes "noise". ...
