May 31 2008


Ok, now I can give you a better idea about what reviews are coming up in the near future.  The sequence will be close to the following:

I’m doing the Minolta teleconverters only because I have them on hand.  Also, I’m working on a Sony/Minolta new/usedHopefully I’ll have most completed by the end of June. *Sony 16-105mm F/3.5-5.6

*Sony/Minolta lens price guide–see below.
*Sony 70-300mm F/4.5-5.6 G
*Sony Teleconverters, 1.4X and 2X
*Minolta APO II Teleconverters, 1.4X and 2X
*Konica Minolta 17-35mm F/2.8-4.0

lens price guide, primarily using eBay final selling prices, with plans for updating the page about once a month.  This will give you an idea about what the current prices are for the more popular lenses, though not every single lens will be included.

I should have the Sony 16-105mm review completed by Tuesday, and I’m comparing it to the Sony CZ 16-80mm, which goes for about $120 more.

One other item of note: if you want accurate specifications for your Sony Camera or lenses, don’t go to the official Sony website.  They give contradictory information between the Specs tab and features tab, and even that info can differ from the specs sheet that comes in the package.  I fire off a message occasionally, but nothing changes.
