a850 I don't remember what lens, possibly Tamron 28-75 or Minolta 50mm macro. Off camera flash.

Testing out my new ZA 24mm f2 lens on an A900 - I must admit it is really quite sharp and the colors seems right.

I think I will leave Alpha soon. But it was nice..

Starting to enjoy my new-to -me 24 f2 Zeiss lens on my A900. It really balances well on the A900 - very very sharp - and the colors are wonderful - (for some reason this lens never got very good reviews?)

It didnt get too good reviews cause 1) few samples flared quite a bit 2) it has field curvate, lots of it. But, when one forgets this tech stuff and just shoot, its pretty nice lens and I seen quite a lot of nice pics done with it. So, dont worry.. just enjoy.

Mescalamba, I like your second one.

Rick, your photos are always striking!

Here are three more with the A900 and the Minolta 28-135, from a recent trip to Asturies:

Xbarcelo,

I really like the 3rd image - composition it is perfect.

Meanwhile thanks for the compliment - lately I have been struggling with post process - I have been upping the contrast and saturation far too often - so now I am working on keeping things a little less "Hot".

Here's a shot with the A900 and the Minolta 35/2… I wonder if I should be posting it to the RX1 thread for comparison purposes…

Darn! I just missed a Minolta 35 f2 on buy/sell - I should have jumped on it!

Me too.
I don't really need one, but they don't come up for sale very often, and that one looked to be in great condition.

All these pictures were taken the same day using a Sony A77 with Contax C/Y Zeiss 35-70 mm lens with Leitax adapter. The location is near Mesa, Arizona, USA

First bright day in a long time here in Coastal Maine! Got to take my A900 with ZA 24 f2 out for a quick spin.

Thanks Ocean - Yes I do like that lens - not only uber sharp but also balances on the A900 perfectly.
