… of the beholder. As we all know, and yes it’s totally true.
So today I shot THIS pic, and I just happen to love it. It’s probably a really dumb and unsignificant image for 99,9% of people, but I just like it.
It’s a pretty vibrant tribute to 1) the sheer awesomeness of Dobermanns, and 2) the sublime IQ of the NEX 7’s 24mp sensor paired with excellent glass (in this case, the brilliant PEN F 38/1.8, wide open).
This puts an (temporary, most likely) end to my affair with NEX cameras. They are truly excellent in many, many ways, but for me both the lack of crucial references in the lens line-up, and below average autofocus performance kills the system. For now. I have absolutely NO doubt that Sony will address both issues very shortly, and will gladly experiment with further NEX models in the future (specifically an FF LEX is high on my list).
Snow is in the cards this week. I hate snow. Thankfully I don’t have to brave the elements and work in the cold anymore. Next flakes I’ll see up close will be on ski slopes in two weeks. A much better perspective 😉
