    Yes - I like it, I think that is an improvement. I was pretty happy with the feel of the second photo. The light was great at that time of night.

    True :)

    Maybe that comparison will have to wait until the A900. Although comparison shots in that shared range might be interesting anyway.

    Hey Don,

    How about the Sigma 10-20mm versus the KM 17-35mm? (APS-C wide versus FF wide)

    My interest here is that the 10-20mm is probably next on my list of lenses...

    Hi,

    I have the Sigma 70-300 lens. It is great for outdoor sports, a very good range to get close to the action. Any of the lenses mentioned by Don and others will give sharper, punchier photos...

    Hi toriaj, Geoff and all,

    That's fine to show those images, I'm glad that you like the end result and that it makes sense what I was trying to do. I use Photoshop CS3 for the Merge to HDR.

    I got a cheaper generic IR filter

    Hello,

    I actually got a cheaper generic 62mm IR filter from this seller on eBay, it works fine, is metal and feels okay.

    It cost me $35 including postage, which seemed pretty good.

    Yes

    I can confirm that you can take IR images with the Sony Alpha A100.
    You just need an IR filter, like the Hoya R72 filter. You will need a tripod though, as the exposure times are pretty long.
