Re: Hello from Luxembourg

Hi Skytalker and welcome to this forum.
When I asked my friend whether he would've dreamed of being young again, he smiled very nastily and replied: " I got a lot of pain in the a** during all these years to get to my present age, and now you want me to get back? NO WAY" he said. :)

Re: A900 lottery, will you take a chance?

I understand perfectly your concern. And yes, we have a lot of thinking prior to purchasing such an expensive item (oops, we still don't know the price). But I think people using other brands are so much ashamed of mentioning/reporting such issues that on the long run we might not be aware of it. It...

Re: Sony a200

I understand your feelings David, but cheer up, I am still waiting for the a700 to show up in the Middle East. Frankly I don't know who's to be blamed, Sony or their Agency/representative in the Middle East, but anyhow I don't like the way they work.

Focus Limiting Knob

To all who use Sigma 50/2.8 Macro lens please DO NOT play with the focus limiter knob, as the construction of it is very mediocre and can cause you a headache, so always leave it on "full". Unfortunately, mine was stuck, and when disassembling the lens I was quite disappointed from the inn...

Be Careful with Sigma 50/2.8 Macro

Unexpectedly, the focus limiter knob on my Sigma 50/2.8 Macro EX DG refused to go back to "full", thus forcing me to take pictures from a distance and then to crop. In fact I used that knob just once! So, having no repairer here, and with no possibility to send outside, decided to try to f...

I think I know what you mean. I am still waiting that Sony Middle-East declares A700 available. A couple of weeks ago, they included this item in their web page, and then suddenly took it off. And right now there is no sign of A700. As if people from the Middle East are not humans or may be seen as ...

I own a Sigma 50/2.8 EX DG Macro. It's a nice macro lens, but have to admit a few points: I asked my friend to buy and bring for me from Dubai (UAE) the Sony version which he couldn't find at the time (neither the 50 nor the 100 macros) so he brought me the Sigma instead. I repeat it's a fine lens, ...
