I'm not looking for the right things, apparently, as I'm only finding very small zooms. I was looking for any autofocus lens to see what's out there. Any pointers to where they're sold?


Second question:

Right now I have a 50mm (6.7 FOV) on the camera, but wanted to check my math. I used to know all this.


So if I have a 50mm on a 1/2.8 sensor, that's equiv to about a 400mm on a full frame 35mm.

However if I put my 50mm from my 35mm camera onto a 1/2.8 sensor, then I'll have about a 50mmx7 crop factor to be about 350mm. Right?

I did buy my 50mm from them- they sent one with an IR filter, so a little 'snip snip', crunch and crackle later.... it was removed.

I'm still looking for a 7.6mmx7.6mm IR PASS filter; I found an 8mm, but I don't know of any mounts that would fit that.

So I slapped an IR-only (850nm bandpass) over the camera. Now I have IR during the day, and during the night.

Now... the auto exposure sucks, and the manual exposure sucks, and.... sigh.
