  1. Has anyone heard about this? Any thoughts? https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/news/sirui-set-to-sell-85mm-f14-to-sony-users

  3. Cruising in the southern Caribbean next week. I have a Sony RX10ii, and both UV and CP filters. About 95% of my shooting will be outdoors (landscapes, panoramas, street scenes, etc.). Wondering if I should just leave the UV filter in the bag, and keep the CP filter on all week . . . Any thoughts?
  4. We were upgraded from an interior guarantee to an ocean view based on a $70 pp bid that was shown to be "weak."
  5. I have a Sony RX10 MK II, and love it for its versatility and image quality. Below is a link to a side-by-side comparison of the two cameras. Both of them share the same sensor, so image quality would be virtually the same. The biggest difference is probably the range of the zoom lenses (200mm for the RX10 MKII vs. 600mm for the MKIV). The other major difference is the $700 difference in price. I don't need a 600mm lens, so for me the decision to purchase the MKII was an easy one. https://cameradecision.com/compare/Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX10-II-vs-Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX10-IV
  6. I'm thinking maybe a Domino's Pizza?
  7. B&H offers free shipping and no sales tax, plus they threw in a few extras like a shoulder bag when I purchased my Sony DSC RX10ii from them. I've also purchased a Sony A6300 from them recently. Highly recommended . . .
  8. This sounds interesting . . . https://www.dpreview.com/news/9018274882/viltrox-announces-85mm-f1-8-autofocus-lens-for-sony-e-mount-cameras
  9. Good choice. I have the RX10ii and love it. You might want to consider purchasing Alexander White's "Guide to the Sony RX10iv." His series of guidebooks are very thorough and helpful. Good luck with your new camera . . .
  10. You can get the RX10ii with a 24-200 lens for $998, and it has most of the features of the RX10iii, except for the 600 mm zoom lens. If you don't need the extra reach of the 600 mm lens, I think the RX11 is a better value. It also has a built-in ND filter, which I'm not sure the RX10iii has. I've had RX10ii for about 6 months, and love it . . .
  11. The tracking is definitely out of control. It is impossible to do a Google search of a product for pricing comparisons or reviews without being inundated with ads from Amazon, etc. I tried to delete Cookies, but found that all of my auto sign ins were also deleted . . .
  12. There are a number of memory cards available with different speeds, capacities, etc. What is your preferred memory card for photos and/or videos?
  13. I appreciate the responses. I guess I was thinking more along the lines of a full-frame camera with a fixed zoom lens, like the Zeiss 24-200 lens on the Sony RX10ii. It looks like most of the full-frame fixed lens cameras have prime lenses. Would a fixed zoom lens be compatible with a full-frame camera?
  14. Maybe I'm delusional, but I would love to see a full-frame fixed lens camera. I currently own several cameras, including a Sony DSC RX10ii with a Zeiss f2.8 24-200 lens and a 1-inch sensor. I love the camera and the lens (I don't need the 600 mm zoom lens on the RX10 Mark 3 and 4 cameras). I know there are a few fixed lens cameras with APS-C sensors, but I already own a Sony Alpha-65 with an APS-C sensor and a couple of zoom lenses, so I don't need that. Is there any possibility of Sony, Fuji, or any other manufacturer introducing a full-frame camera with a high quality fixed lens, or is the idea of a full-frame camera with a fixed lens simply a pipe dream? I realize that the combination sounds incompatible, since both features appeal to different types of photographers, but still . . . Any thoughts?
