Today we were birthday party bound (except we didn’t *know* it was somebody’s birthday, which caused us to very awkwardly show up empty handed… Well, not quite. Since we were visiting our friends Charlotte and Guillaume, I packed the NEX7 and the Navitar 75/1.3, knowing it’s Charlotte’s favorite rendering lens.
The logical, sane choice of lens for this outing would obviously have been the Sony 16-70 F4 Zeiss. Except it’s boring as ..uck
Most modern lenses are (boring as ..uck)
Now, vintage, weird, exotic and rare manual focus primes, that’s another story.
So I took the Navitar for a spin instead of the Sony AF, super versatile zoom, and I had an absolute blast…
I suppose it’d only be fair I mention the fact I received the Fuji XT-1 this morning, at 8:07 sharp
It was back in its box and tagged with its return label by 9:20, tops
Well, the front dial was lose (and actually broken), but that has very little do do with it. Ergonomically speaking I hated everything about it
Thank God I hadn’t sold my E mount lenses off, and aside from 3 “to Fuji X” adapters, I won’t have lost much in the process
So I guess I’ll have to live with all the small annoyances I’ve had with NEX for the past two years, as absolutely NO camera that I’ve tried over that period has done better for me than the NEX7
See what I mean about that lens ?
So looks like I’m still a Sony girl tonight 😉
