comment Why is there not a protective glass element that is between the lens and shutter in a SLR?
Re. point (b): wouldn't the smudge be spread out to the point of invisibility? And the assumption in point (c) that the glass would be cheap is unwarranted; any sensible manufacturer would use glass of quality consistent with the body.

comment How do Micro 4/3s cameras compare with DSLR cameras?
@MikeW, the E-5 is a 4/3 camera, not a Micro 4/3.

comment How to rate the optical quality of a used lens?
Thanks for the heads-up. Not spam; rather, they got hacked. If it's not fixed soon (or if anyone has evidence it's been unrepaired for a long time), I'll remove the link.

comment What is the best negative scanner (35mm) for $400 or less?
I think there is tremendous value in this question, and I’m glad it’s here. IMO the concerns about value persisting into the indefinite future are pedantic; if we went down that path, this site would be far less useful.

comment Is there a mapping tool that will let me visualize a lens's angle of view?
Meta: This is the way to suggest that other SE sites may also be useful, not migrations without discussion with the OP that we often fall into.

comment What do you do with your camera clock time in relation to time zones?
The reason I stopped setting my camera to local time is the difficulty of cleaning up after I inevitably forget to do it or leave it on some random time zone after returning home.

revised What is the easiest way to preserve old glass plate negatives?
this doesn't actually appear to be about developing, but rather scanning; however, please revert if I've misinterpreted

comment How do I know if I'm ready to turn professional?
Well, if you can't win, why try? At best, you'll just waste your time. But the larger point is, going pro is so difficult that if one is uncertain about it, then it's pretty likely to be a bad idea. One must be exceedingly driven and passionate in order to succeed.

comment When should one turn off their DSLR?
I suspect removing the battery gives you pretty negligible gain. For example, my D90 regularly goes several months on a single battery, with light use. Do you have any numbers?

comment Should I get DX for my APS-C camera, or FX lenses in case I upgrade to full-frame in the future?
The point there assumes that there are fields of view which are more desirable than others, and FX lenses are designed to deliver those fields of view on FX; on DX, the same lenses will give narrower fields of view. For an extreme example, you'd never put a 200mm lens on a compact camera: it would be far too long. The same effect happens with an FX lens on DX; it's just not so extreme.
