Re: Hoya HRT vs Tiffen DHT Polarizers?

Thanks David,

I would therefore assume that Hoya is the only maker that allows the most light through their polarizers then, that we know of, and of a high level of quality make, that is...

Hoya HRT vs Tiffen DHT Polarizers?

With very little knowledge of Polarizers and their quality - could anyone provide some insight on this question: If my concern is over how you lose a certain amount of light hitting the sensor due to the Polarizing filter, is there a difference in this regard between Hoya's HRT (High Rate Transparen...

Sigma 19 and 30 2.8's for e mount - loose materials inside?

Hello, As a possible new owner of these two lenses to be used with NEX 7, could someone provide any insights into the moving parts inside these lenses, once they are not activated by the NEX cameras? i.e. I keep hearing that when you shake the lens in you hands, it feels and sounds that something's ...

Re: NEX 7 autofocus compatibility with LA-EA1

I did some research and see that the LA-EA1 adaptor is only compatible with SAM / SSM lenses, so am I correct in stating it will be autofocus with all of the budget primes that say "SAM", like the 50 1.8, 30 2.8 Macro, 35 1.8, 85 2.8, and 18-55 SAM? Next question I guess would be, will it ...

Tamron 18-200 for NEX 7 - Sweep Panorama Fix?

Hello,

Anyone know if Tamron has fixed this "issue" with their 18-200 e-mount lens yet? i.e. users stating the sweep pano mode does not perform properly. Or, is there a Tamron support # or support email I can check with them direct?

Thanks for any input here.

Re: Technical Lens stabilization question

Thanks, I agree with you, but the reasoning behind my question is solely based on going down a list of pros and cons for whether or not to buy a lens, especially when it's $1000. It was really just a technical question, so you're saying if the Zeiss had OSS, it would be 3 to 4 stops... My main quest...

Technical Lens stabilization question

Sony NEX has a 50 1.8 prime with OSS. Question - if I got the Zeiss 24 1.8 for NEX, which does not have any stabilization, since a 1.8 lens is a fast lens, could I consider just having the 1.8 lens stabilization in its own right, because it's so fast, i.e. not worrying if the image will have optical...

Re: DXO 7 - File System access?

Thank you - just a final question on DXO 7 - does it give you access to the File System while you're working on photos? i.e. does DXO 7 force you to import a library or catalog like LR3? or is it like Bibble 5, where you have access to the File System.

Thanks again!

Re: NEX 7 - 2 sec timer mode?

Apologies - finally figured it out - the owner's manual doesn't explain to press the soft button below the wheel button to toggle between 10 sec and 2 sec mode.

Re: NEX 7 Raw Support?

Do you get NEX 7 support with the Standard edition of DXO 7? Or do you have to pay extra for the NEX 7?

NEX 7 - 2 sec timer mode?

Hello,

Okay, I'm officially stumped on this one - the owner's manual of the NEX 7 states there is a 2 sec timer mode within the Drive mode, in addition to the 10 sec timer mode.

Question - how do you activate or setup the 2 sec timer mode on the NEX 7?

Thanks for any support here.

Re: Zeiss 24 1.8 for NEX 7

What I'm really asking here - is just how good is this Zeiss 24 1.8 for emount lens? Are we talking similar to the Zeiss 85, 135, or 24 F2 for the A-mount?

Or, just the best e-mount prime wide angle but not in the same ballpark as the A-mounts I listed above?

Re: Zeiss 24 1.8 for NEX 7

Thank you for the link, but I'm aware of stabilization. I was simply saying that the Zeiss 24 1.8 does not have any kind of stabilization optically, and the NEX 7 doesn't have it on the sensor either, so I was just stating that with a 1.8 lens, you can shoot handheld with this type of "fast&quo...
