    Red face Is that all there is? Yeah, for now.

    The two grips are very compatible. I feared it might be a cheap knock-off, but somebody actually did their homework, this time. I mean, it may not compete with the upcoming vertical grips SONY is about to release for the A10 and A200, but on the A100 ... it does the job.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Red face Some test shots with the new one

    The sun was high and I felt the urge to get a particular 18mm test done on the lens, in P-Mode.

    Here it is:

    At this wide angle, you can kind of see how everything is tending to pull to the upper right.


    And you can be quite sure, in my own de-fence (pun intended), that the fence is quite
    vertical.

    and judging from what's finally showing up this year ... spring is finally here.

    Just the raw light and the camera

    Saturate it a bit (+45) and darker it down (-17), and it turns into this:
