    No worries. It is a specialty lens for sure. Their 12 mm required a film filter that attached to the lens hood. Regardless, sometimes I think I will sell this lens but then I get shots like this:Statistics: Posted by jbtaylor — Tue Jul 07, 2015 12:25 am

  • Sony Alpha 100-900 • 64Gb CF card and A900 Issue July 6, 2015
    My A900 is having difficult time keeping up with a 64Gb CF card. Granted it was an used card and worked flawlessly for about 3-4 months, the combo has become unreliable. All of a sudden, Camera freezes saying it cannot read the card. Only options I found to work at that point: 1) Replace the […]

    Aah. I missed the detail on that 14mm. Since the widest I have is 24mm, I have no idea about the travails of a UWA lens.Mea culpa.SuryStatistics: Posted by sury — Mon Jul 06, 2015 11:09 pm

    The outer element on the Tamron 14mm 2.8 is rounded. It is quite the animal. Never seen a filter that could be used for it.JTStatistics: Posted by jbtaylor — Mon Jul 06, 2015 9:48 pm

Sony A7R II, RX10 II, RX100 IV – making everything else obsolete

sonyjune1529

(Updated June 15th after press conference) The new Sony A7R II is the camera I’ve been waiting for, which everyone has predicted, and which seems to tick every box without having a huge price label on its own. I find the $3,200 (UK coinfirmed £2,600) matches its stated specifications well. Others may disagree, but they’re probably influenced by […] . . . → Read More: Sony A7R II, RX10 II, RX100 IV – making everything else obsolete

Sony Alpha 3000 review by David Kilpatrick

SONY DSC

There’s not much really, in a different of just three tenths of an inch. There’s even less when the inch isn’t a proper inch, but the sort of inch used to express the size of sensors or display chips. Except, that is, when the difference is between 0.5 inch and 0.2 inch and you’re comparing […] . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 3000 review by David Kilpatrick

Nikon 1 system makes a splash

How many outlets will use that original headline, I wonder, and what inspiration leads to it… Today, Nikon released the world’s first interchangeable lens digital camera – if you ignore the military version of the Nikonos RS underwater SLR produced with Kodak. Unlike that specialised system, the AW1 is intended for the consumer and is extremely […] . . . → Read More: Nikon 1 system makes a splash

Pentax Q up to battle it out with NEX and Ricoh

Although it’s not Alpha, this product announcement – embargoed until 5am UK time, 23rd June, though no doubt by adhering to the embargo we will be a day later than hundreds of websites breaking it – speaks volumes for the impact of Sony’s Alpha system, its interformat lens compatibility, and the future of non-SLR systems. Kenko, […] . . . → Read More: Pentax Q up to battle it out with NEX and Ricoh
