    Post T200-500mm EXIF Data versus indicated position

    On the issue of the 200-500mm lens and some ... particulars.

    Concerning EXIF reporting from the A700 w/ the 200-500 mounted.

    I took and positioned the lens at various zoom ranges, as indicated by the painted numbers on the zoom ring. The second column is the reported zoom (somebody might note this irregularity).

    Indicated . . . . . Reported EXIF
    200 . . . . . . . . . . 200
    250 . . . . . . . . . . 250
    300 . . . . . . . . . . 300
    350 . . . . . . . . . . 360
    400 . . . . . . . . . . 420
    450 . . . . . . . . . . 420
    500 . . . . . . . . . . 500

    That's not a mistake, EXIF specifies 420 @ 400 & 450 indicated.

    Hey, it kind of did the same thing on the Canon EOS, too, so no big deal, but you should remember your zoom should you be above 350mm and not yet at 500mm.

    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.
