October 15 2010


Ok, I guess we’ve had enough Sony bashing for now, so let’s move on to more positive news. I think I’m going to buy the A33 (cheap and small) as a back-up camera(!) so I’ll let you know what I think of it after I run it through some tests, and see if the ghosting issue is a deal killer.  Hopefully, that purchase will allow me to get by until Sony releases a replacement for the A700. Believe it or not, the only digital cameras I own are the A900 and A700, along with a point and shoot.

A new Minolta lens manual has been added to the lens manual page.  Thanks to Dr. Roy from parts unknown for furnishing an English and Spanish copy of the owner’s manual for the Minolta AF 300mm F/4 APO G and 400mm F/4.5APO G, and thanks to Michael, also from parts unknown, for fixing up the files and getting them ready to post on the site.  I’m too lazy and/or dumb (choose only one please) to do it myself.  Go here and scroll to the bottom of the page for the links.

Sony’s new lenses are available now from Sony and some other outlets, unfortunately, B&H Photo still isn’t showing any in stock.
