Is this the rumour you mean?  http://www.sonyalpha...and-90mm-macro/

In Topic: Dive Ops/Destinations which restrict strobe use

28 July 2014 - 09:06 AM

In Malta, diving with H2O, I was forbidden to use strobe when photographing a seahorse. Apparently it can damage their eyesight to the point of putting life at risk, so I'm fine to hike up the ISO and shoot natural light. As a good citizen of the oceans, I follow this rule outside of Malta too. http://flic.kr/p/nyqQR9

In Topic: Airlines/Airports with strict hand/cabin luggage rules

28 July 2014 - 08:53 AM

Philippine Airlines have a 10 kg checked-in limit for domestic flights, which they enforce strictly. This can get very expensive due to most island-to-island travel being via Manila with a change of flights - so you have to pay twice.

At Busuanga airport (for Coron) they didn't have a card machine, so as I didn't have enough cash to pay the excess, I had to pay at the Manila end before they released my luggage. It was great to have that option, but there wasn't a credit card machine in the Arrivals hall either, so I had to go through to Departures and pay there. 30 mins delay. I'll definitely take enough cash next time.

Fortunately I never got my cabin baggage weighed.

Interesting, I didn't realise. Does the same 1.5 factor apply to focal length?

Would FE lenses work on a NEX? I thought not, but stand to be corrected.
