    Thanks for your reply, only saw it now. Itoo love the Batis lenses and quite enjoy the 16-35f4. Seems we have similar taste 😄

    Good/bad copies of Sony 24-70 f/4 lens?

    I use test charts to do an indoor verification of the decentering and resolution and I also do some outdoor shots. Thus for instance my first copy of the 16-35 Zeiss f4 was decentered and had to be returned. Second copy was fine. The 24-70 was fine from the first copy.

    Sony Firmware Updater a Major Security Risk?

    Considering that most people had already used the updater, prior to this warning, at some time or another what should we do? Is there any software or files we could look for and that should be removed from the computer? I have Avast on my computers.

    Any suggestions on good adapter for M lenses to E mount

    I've had very good experience with the Novoflex adapter. In my case it is for Contax lenses (Contax Distagon 28/f2 -the Hollywood lens-, Contax S-Planar 60mm f2.8 (macro) and Planar 100mm f2, all West Germany made). It is for manual focusing, but all work perfectly, snug fit, perfect focus. I...

    A9: coming soon to you ...

    And I am still on my 2 A900's! AF speed is of no importance to me as I use it almost exclusively for landscape photography.

    Do the math - focal length and Format demystified

    A guy who does not know that P divided by squareroot of P simply equals squareroot of P is telling us how to do the math with measurements :ROTFL:

    LR lens corrections

    Are the lenscorrection profiles in LR5 of the same quality as those in DxO? In particular are they provided by Adobe or some PRO lab, or are they user-made? Thanks, cheers, Bob.
