p.2 #1 · Lens Cap Replacement Zeiss Makro Planar 2.0


I am always thinking that why industry is still using threaded filter and crappy hot shoe mount. These two things are the ones should be redesigned immediately. (I am glad that SONY has improved their flash mount)

No, I don't. I just feel it's very slow to screw in the filter, there should be a standard & clever way to mount the filter. I guess SONY got complaints from their customers not being able to use cheap 3rd party flashes, so they reverted back to the old style.
Speaking of Zeiss 50 MP, the problem is the snap-in type lens cap. I like regular ones as Canon & Leica's. Their lens caps are easier to be centered/aligned by our fingers.

ah, i'm almost never in a hurry with caps or filters so i much prefer solid protection to speed. pinch caps pop off to easily.
