Hurricane Sandy is here on the Maine Coast. The Rockland Breakwater is holding up OK.

Some Urbex stuff (which actually isn't, because it's a Majorcan stately home…) on the A900:

Rick, very nice set for your Quebec City, Canada photos! Were the street photos taken by Zeiss 24-70?

xbarcelo, excellent images from your Minolta glasses. I like the HDR one very much.

Ocean,

Yes 24-70 Zeiss with the A900 is my favorite walk-around - albeit a bit heavy.

The Minolta 17-35mm F2.8-4 shows great clarity.

Hoping we'll see some a99 pics any day now.

I didn't know so many people checked this thread out. Cool! Alwang, I'm also looking forward to some A99 pics (unfortunately, not from me).
Mortyb, I've been quite liberal with the clarity slider in Lightroom… So I'm not sure the images represent the Minolta 17-35 all that well. To be honest, I feel there's a difference between it and the 28-135, in the latter's favour. But maybe I should reevaluate… In fact, I was thinking of converting a C/Y Zeiss 18/4 to Sony. However, it's an AE, so I don't know where to start from (I've seen some mount conversions on flickr, but the guy that did them didn't respond to my message).
Sebboh, I thought you had an A55, did you get rid of it?
Finally, Peire, ocean and mco, thanks a lot!

yeah, i sold it. it was my birding camera for use with the leica R 350/4.8, but the NEX-7 turned out to be better in that regard due to the better evf and peaking (extra detail was nice too).
