  • Alpha NEX system • Re: An Interesting Dilema For The Future April 28, 2016
    Different preferences,different solutions. Now I don't often go over 300mm let alone 600mm so it's a matter of choice, and I can't justify upgrading to say a Series 11 70 - 400 mm A mount or any FE similar lens that may become available. The quality of the Sony 1 inch sensor is acceptable to […]

    Unfortunately my Sigma70-300 died with af gear stripped down. I am taking a 28-200 Tamron that is in "stock pile". Hopefully a tad more reach but it is not 300mm FL. It is now too late to acquire any new lens. SuryStatistics: Posted by sury — Tue Apr 26, 2016 7:34 pm

    Ah, it was Peru, not Cuba, I was thinking of. A77M2 and the 16-80 will be an awesome combo. I can understand you not wanting to lug around the 70-400; it is a beast. If you think you may want some extra range over 80mm then I would suggest something such as the Sigma 70-300 […]
