Some thinking to do but it looks like the x-t2 would fit my needs nicely.
Just seen amason are selling the full frame Sony A7ii for £740. Wow, I didnt realise how much full frame prices have dropped, that’s like half what it was a few yrs ago. May well ditch my A77 and go for that.
The cost of Sony glass puts me off.
You can use any glass with their e mount system, with their (glassless) adapor rings.
But yes sony lenses are spendy.
Probably worth the spend if you look on DxOMark, all seem very good.
Apparently canon lenses work well with Sony but it defeats the id3a of going smaller.
Agree, shoving big lenses on a small body isn’t something I want to do with a walk about camera. A decent compact zoom and a 50mm prime is all I’d need really.
I use Leica R lenses with my A7r. They used to be v cheap…
Just came across this with a 24-3000mm zoom
Not sure how useful that would actually be (birders?) but wow:
Some amazing shots there - the one of the rotting sea lion and lizard reminded me of this decomposing whale on Colonsay in the summer. The stench close-up was truly overpowering and yet birds were flitting in and out picking away.
Some stunning images here:
Good comp that: Hi Fi men in various guises have featured strongly in the recent past - Mark Littlejohn of the other place won two years ago and I believe a lovely chap now mainly on PFM, Amar “Lefty” was shortlisted this year. Hope for us all
Mark l is cool I bought one of his prints years ago , reminds me I must frame it.
Agree, he is a bloody genius.
