February 5 2009


I added a new link on the Nav bar, which attempts to answer frequently asked questions, and will be called the FAQs page.  I have a whopping three questions answered so far.  The first concerns Sony tele-converter compatibility, and how to tell instantly if one will fit on your lens.  The second question explains why you still need a polarizing filter, with ideas for use; they’re not just for enhancing a blue sky.  The last question on the page (right now) shows the procedures used to properly identify a circular aperture.

Also, I see quite a few of you are paying attention, and noticed my two minute photoshop job of the “A800” on the last review product shot.  I didn’t think most people payed any attention to the little things, which I spend so much time on throughout the site.  That was the intent.  Most folks thought is was funny.  I got a good laugh out of it too.  For some reason, a few dour chat room “experts” got their panties all in a bind.  My advice to you people; go outside and actually engage in some sort of photographic endeavor, and stop worrying about new equipment!

For you chat-roomers with a fistful of Dollars, get the Sony A900 with a 24-70mm F/2.8 Carl Zeiss lens for $500 off the retail price, which puts it around $4250 + tax.  The ad is at the top of the page, click the ad and you’ll go to another page, then go to the “add bundle to cart” box on the right to see the final price, with tax.

The next review will be the Carl Zeiss 135mm F/1.8 lens.  Look for it late next week.
