comment What is “infinity focus”?
That's what I meant by be are as you can focus beyond infinity. Statistically, most lenses do not let you focus past infinity. Your statistics would be skewed though if you were to only look at Canon lenses.

comment Are there any known issues with using filter step-up rings?
What I do is skip the hood when a filter which requires a step-up ring. First, I am not a big filter user and then, a good number of my lenses actually require 77mm or 62mm, so the cases where I end up with at a disadvantage or not frequent at all. No compromise is perfect.

comment What tools exist to remove metadata from photos?
Indeed, it is surprising. My version has the default to 100 (as specified in the docs) but maybe the Mac version is different (I'm on Linux).

comment What tools exist to remove metadata from photos?
That's a whole lot of metadata! :) There is an optional quality argument which you can specify as a value between 0 and 100. 100 is the best. 90 is good and 85 is reasonable but I do not go any lower. Just specify it as -q 95 for example. Try it with 100 too.

comment How can I backup my photos while travelling?
What I use are DVD/CD cases which are very light and almost exactly the shape of a pile of 20 or DVDs. I have an aluminum one I bought in South America and some neoprene ones from the dollar store. The criteria was compactness first. As long as nothing rubs on the DVD surface, they will almost never get damaged.

comment How does a short flange back distance improve image quality?
Guess they could but an element closer to the sensor which straightens the incidence angle.

It may but that is not a given. The point is that, the shorter the flange distances, the more options lens designers have.

comment Best way to store photos while traveling
I've already answered this and I am quite paranoid too. Never lost any photos: photo.stackexchange.com/a/4415/1620

Actually you did ask the former :) That's what I see as the question at the top of this page.

comment Is a self-cleaning sensor necessary when using only one lens?
You're right. Changing lenses is a hassle. I do know how I do it with only same cameras and over twice the number of lenses :) Only I may have to hire a porter because I'm usually out with 5-6 lenses and 2 cameras.
