    Sonynut, have you had problems with the purple colour fringing described by Kurt Munger?

    Question a55/a33 on DCRP -> Not getting a lot of play

    I would have thought that there would be a little interest by the buying public for answers to common questions about the new SLT-mirror cameras. (lenses, flashes, etc.) You know, just general questions. I suppose if it is merely a jump from DLSR technology, most are covered, but if it is from P/S ...

    Anyone else find this a little ... vacant?

    To the person that asked about the dust with an A-55-

    The translucent mirror material (which is still undisclosed by Sony as to what it is) is resistant to dust, which makes me assume it is some sort of anti-static material like that of what hard disk drives ship in. The A-55 also upon power on and power off does a "micro-shake" to remove any dust build up on the fixed translucent lens (if any).

    Unless you never remove the lens, interchangeable lens cameras suffer from the ingress of dust. Fact!
    You can blow the camera out and clean the Sensor (it's pretty tough).
    The Semi-Transparent mirror is still an unknown factor.
    AFAIK there is no user routine to clean it should it become dirty and Sony will charge you GBP117 to do it.

    dust: perhaps the most over dramatised issue of dslr today.

    I'd agree that it's not a huge problem if you take care when swapping lenses.
    But sooner or later dust will get in and, if it's visible, then you need to get rid of it.
    Also, the closer to the Sensor the dust particle is, the more problematic it becomes.
