Hello everyone. It's been awhile since I last posted here. I'm back in Malaysia finally for a 1 month break before returning to the UK next month.

I just returned from a 5 day trip in Iceland last month

How come this one got that ring of flare?
You got any filter on the lens?

no filters

it's a character of the lens itself, if you aim the lens at the sun accordingly, you will get that flare

hmm.gif is it... Never really seen one like that.

I asked filter because when I put on CPL on my 12mm F2 Samyang I do get this kind of round flare when pointed directly into light sobut non-existence without the CPL biggrin.gif
Super lazy to administer my photos on Flickr. Now mostly only post on Insta.

Any other easy way to Flickr? Upload on the mobile apps the quality like crap. The hast tags and group thingy not very intuitive also.

I don't really bother with flickr nowadays. Only upload so can share easily on forums like LYN. Once upload I just leave it be, lazy to do the hashtags staightaway, only fill it up when I'm really free and boring biggrin.gif

but IINM on the web uploader you can hashtag, add to groups / albums by batch. Just select all the pictures and then edit on the side panel

i'll pass with a9, great camera as always by Sony but the highlighted features make it seem it's not the tool for me (or it's just too much for me)



waiting for a7iii if there's ever gonna be one....

I'll take the 12-24 since I already have the 16-35 F4


but then I'll rather go for a UWA prime such as the samyang 14mm f2.8 or even better, Laowa 12mm f2.8

Voigtlander Hyperwide Heliars are great options as well

KLDSLR is quite reputable for this, I just deal with them to trade in my Sony 70-200mm f.28 GM for something else

I've done and accompanied friends with trade-ins at kldslr, YL camera and Altech Camera. And felt like YL and Altech did more intensive checks

Try SC camera at Berjaya Times Square

Thanks all. Will check them out

Btw how much do you guys think a 2 year old 16 - 35 f4 zeiss will fetch? Good condition of course with no visible scratches

Drop me a pm as well if anyone is interested

just traded in my almost 4 years old 16-35mm F4 and 50mm F1.8 to Altech Camera for RM2k and RM350

then bought a second hand 24-105 F4 for 1.6k (selling for 3980), still with official warranty left until Nov this year


probably time to upgrade body when A7IV is out tongue.gif dont think my old first gen A7 is doing the glass justice

24 - 105 F4 was a second hand lens selling for RM3.9k with official warranty until Nov

i sold my 16-35 F4 for 2k + 50 F1.8 for 350 = 2.3k

I bought the lens for 1.6k after deduct with my trade in value
