    Use Sony Nex lens on Micro 4/3 ???

    I got a Jackar Snapshooter "toy" lens by accident in the Sony Nex mount. I wanted to use it on a OMD EM5 micro four thirds camera. I can not for the life of me find an adapter. Are the physics wrong or something? Thank for any help! Robert

    DP1 No B&W unless shooting Jpegs ??

    Was checking out my new DP1 last night. When choosing raw+jpeg the B&W option is grayed out on the color menu. In jpeg only, the B&W can be selected on the menu. With my other Merrills I can shoot Raw&jpeg, choose B&W and it gives me B&W on the rear LCD screen when viewing and B&W images on...

    Sigma Software 5.5.3 Correct?

    Hi, I've only made a few photos with my DP2 and I've had to use the jpeg function because the Mac OS on my home computer was too far out of date. I'm now ready to shoot raw and will soon download the software. Is the 5.5.3 the latest and/or correct one? I seem to remember folks here having...

    SD1 should I or should I not ?

    Hi, I have all three of the DP Merrills and really like them. The image quality and I actually like the funky little camera bodies. I am not crazy about the lack of viewfinder and sometimes it seems like actually looking through the lens and seeing what the lens sees might be nice. Thinking...

    Lens Hood for DP2 Merrill

    Hello, What is a good answer for a lens hood that will also let me use filters on a DP2 Merrill? I see at B&H a plain hood and two different Sigma adapters that say you can use filters. I don't quite understand the difference. I also read about a Lensmate brand DP1 adapter. Any thoughts...
