Upload & Sell: Off
Well, I received my NEX-7 and Contax 90mm lens, the lens was super and the camera a whiz bang techno feast. I worked with it during the last couple of days and everything was fine. The image quality was outstanding. But today I went to one of my favorite haunts by the river and did get some shots of the GBH's doing their thing, and tried to get a shot of the eagle looking down at me from a tree in the distance. I did wish for more lens but was going crop in order to bring a picture in.
Sadly the sun was way too bright, the viewfinder kept going on and off. I turned off the lcd screen and just used the viewfinder, and even removed the viewfinder plastic gizmo that attaches. It did not matter, I was overpowered by the 100+ heat and way too much sun, and could not see the peaking things to focus properly. The pictures were pitiful and my eagle shot s were all blurry.
So, I maxed out the NEX-7 I think, and a friend sent me a link to a story about the brawny Pentax K-30, haha.
Now, I am looking at another Canon 1D3 or getting another Nikon D7000. I did sell all my old gear and wholeheartedly dived into the new gear with joy. Starting over is much quicker the umpteenth time around...
This finally proved to me that I would never be satisfied with a Leica 50mm like Cartier-Bresson, and that my camera has to be boondocks proof in any weather.
But I want you guys here to know your pictures are incredible, and I must have looked at several hundred easily, wow, I did want the NEX to work out so I could get a Oly 21 f3.5, 50 f1.2, Nikon manual lenses from last era or two, and more goodies.
Keep having fun, I do love making pictures as well
