comment Is there a digital body that will let me use analog Zeiss T* MM lenses lenses from a Contax 167MT?
I wasn't interested in telling him the details of the lens. The point was telling him I got one mounted without problems using adapters from eBay.

Besides macro infinity is good for landscape, night photography as well.....

Here's a successful mount of the Vario Sonar on my 5D MKII. No it did not smash the mirror :D. The adapter was bought from eBay, HK. I believe it is manufactured in China though. Look for BigIS

comment Why don't cameras support journaled filesystems?
@KartickVaddadi I think it's best to assume when you buy any type of flash memory it will fail at some point in time. The best you can do if you are unwilling to invest to reduce the risk when you are out in the field is to make sure you purchase reliable cards from reputable manufacturers.

comment How can I find a camera bag which won't strain my back?
If I were you I'd try to find out the cause of the back aches as well (posture etc....). Will help with your well being and comfort in the long run :D

comment How do they come up with focal lengths for lenses?
For the record they do have odd focal lengths coming out, the Zeiss 55mm comes to mind but in any reference to it Zeiss seems to want to call it a 50mm.

comment Why do Canon EF and EF-S lenses exhibit the same crop factor?
LightRoom will report based on EXIF information that the lens was able to provide to the camera when taking the shot. In this case the lens reported focal length of 70mm. Usually (my observation) it has not been the case that the software would factor in the sensor size when reporting the focal length that was used to take the picture.

comment Why aren't lenses designed with extra large apertures for autofocus beyond what's used for imaging?
@ChinmayKanchi I don't see a reason why this is being voted for a close, a good question that I've always wondered. I'm for up voting this. What matt said was valid fixing abberation isn't the only factor in designing a lens. It's a fine balancing act between needs, wish list, costs, complexity, trade offs and time to market.

comment How to create custom Google Streetview panorama?
@feklee I'm not sure that google lets you use your own photos for panos. Nothing in the API says that, it's more like how you can take Google Street View data and assemble them on your own.

comment Are images taken with newer DSLRs sharper than those taken with old ones?
@ChinmayKanchi I saw this picture which was taken with a 40D and a CZ 50mm 1.4 . It looks pretty decent (yeah I know not the same body) and I suppose it will make a decent reference for further discussion :D.

@ChinmayKanchi are you able to post sample pics on flickr or some other site to have a look at ?
