Depends on what/how you shoot Harry. IMO, if you like action stuff the A6000 is a much better camera than the NEX-6. If you are a more deliberate shooter the NEX-6 at discount prices is the way to go.


Hi Jim.
Iam more for stills, liking to use the FD lenes. Iam thinking if i then sell the kit lens, since i already have one, i be in at only $400 + dollars.

I think the 18-105 is an underrated lens.

Season of Tilt
Week 18, Saturday - Suffering
"Using Lensbaby optics has definitely been a very interesting adventure. Being manual focus, having an option to tilt the lens and having several optics with different distinctive characteristics has surely been a trail off the beaten path. What I like to say is that Lensbaby consciously offers something different from 'industry standard' of photography today: readymade program modes, autofocus, sharp lenses, intelligent metering, digital sensor and other 'taken for granted things' which makes it possible to take better and better pictures. In short, it's a bit of a different philosophy and [...]"

fantasy iris

Shot in the wee hours of the morning in near total darkness (I had to use a flashlight to even see the thing in the viewfinder, let alone focus), lit from below with a purple laser pointer.

Thank you. That furrow and the fence line are really great leading lines. Makes you wonder what's at the end.

Jim, that's a really cool shot of the iris.

It would be cool to do a multiple exposure shot and get the night sky in the background...

Season of Tilt
Week 18, Wednesday - The Bird

It was really tame and I managed to sneak just under the branch just about 1 meter from the bird. Then I quietly loaded the air rifle, aimed and fired it. The bird dropped off the tree in front of me. It was still alive, but [...]"

Thanks, that would be cool! I'd have to chop it down and move it though since it's growing about 1 foot from the front of the house and there are more buds on the stalk that haven't bloomed yet. Maybe when it gets to the last one...
