I missed quite a few shots this weekend, which annoyed the devil out of me. It was obviously the stupid camera's fault! Actually, the problem is that I cannot get used to the fact that on my Tamron 70-300mm USD, the focus ring is nearer the camera than the zoom ring, and the focus ring will 'refocus' according to the slightest (accidental) tweak. Every other AF zoom I have ever used has had the zoom ring next the camera body. Anyway, as a result, I dug out my embarrassingly large collection of 70(ish) to 200(ish) zooms, and did a detailed performance test, and decided that for my standard tele-zoom I will go back to my 1989 Sigma 75-200mm f:2.8-3.5. It occurred to me while taking the Tamron out of the current main bag, that just about all the kit I mainly use dates back to the late film era (except the above Sigma, which is early AF era). Only two of my six flash guns, three of my twenty odd lenses and none of my accessories are actually 'digital era'. Do other Sony users have a preponderance of older kit that they still use, or am I the only Luddite in the camp?
