comment What are the pros and cons of the two Sony mounts — E and A?
@KartickVaddadi - Contrast-Detect AF is actually more accurate and most hybrid cameras like the NEX-5R switch off Phase-Detect AF in favor of Contrast-Detect in low-light. This intentionally sacrifices speed of focus in favor of accuracy.

There is always some chances of missing focus and there is nothing in the mount which makes one more or less likely to do so. The brighter the lens though, the more light the AF system has to work with.

comment How to reverse command dial for Fujifilm X100s?
No idea if this is possible, not by official functions at least but I know what it's like. Last week I was reviewing the Olympus E-M1 and I kept turning the zoom the wrong direction. Nikon for a long time had the EC indicators and dials reversed, drove people with dual systems crazy!

comment Do UV filters serve any other purpose on modern lenses other than to protect them?
A clear filter would give you the same issues. Maybe a little less degradation but I haven't measured. Even expensive filters cause too much flare under some circumstances.

comment How do I move a photo in Lightroom after it's been added but not copied?
Actually, because LR thinks those files have moved and are not new imports, the metadata will be intact, including the reject flag. That means all the rejected ones will be moved but you can now select them by the reject flag and delete all of them together. It's a little more work but not as tedious.
