Setting up my homebrewn robot for DLSRs I thought about making an
opensource device out of it, as it is not to complicated. The MCU is
openhardware, the SDK is opensource, it has an USB interface, BT is
also available, stepper controller and LCD added, and it works fine.
The full metal gearboxes are solid and pretty cheap in larger
quantities. The electronic parts are less than 100.- Euros (for a
Just for me as an C-noob, programming the robot is easy.
The SDK runs on windows and linux. Stepwise developing more and more
features is just a question of time.
May be a community could develop a system quicker.
But who is able to be the admin of such a play.

Prime versus zoom.
The problem, is 28 isn't really wide enough to be really useful for a lot of
interior work, and composition without zoom and difficult to say the least,
since you often don't have placement luxury.
As an exterior lens, I'm sure it's a great lens to have.
I've always wondered how the MK2 stacks up against, the 10-22, since you
aren't using the outer parts of the lens with the 10-22.

Well I've tested the 28 f1.8 and 28 f2.8 against the 16-35 MKI/MK2 and
even the 28 f2.8 easily beats the 16-35 @28 for resolution and
sharpness. The 28mm f1.8 kills it.
