Who would have thought…

My little stunt with the D90 yesterday has given me renewed respect for the DSLR. I only regretted I didn’t a better lens to take advantage of its goodness. Decided to treat myself tp solid glass. Have this on the way :


The Sigma EX DC 50-150 F:2.8 HSM. A hell of a lens

Has31Mai14-23The next shots are a mix of Nikon and NEX shots, the latter with both the 16-70 and the 75/1.3






Has31Mai14-29NEX7 with 16-70



Has31Mai14-32Nex7 with Navitar 75/1.3

Don’t get me wrong, the gripes I had about the D90 a few days back (I made a post about why I couldn’t use it anymore) haven’t changed one bit. The lack of EVF and tilt screen is still a major block in my daily use. But let’s say for outdoor, fast paced work, it’s bearable, and the super fast autofocus and additional finger estate come in handy. So I do see the old Nikon and the NEX cohabiting in my Think Tank bag in the near future

      Yes you do !!!!! Tell your wife I said so šŸ˜‰ Get one. Everybody needs that lens. Heck, my dogs needs it šŸ˜‰

      • She just agreed to upgrade my (broken) 50 1.8 to a 50 1.4, so it’s going to be a tough sell……I might as well shoot for the moon and bring the Sigma 50-500 on the negotiation table…

    The Bigma is more in your alley birdwise, but you can’t use the fallacious argument that it will be perfect for your kids portraits. The 50-150, OTOH šŸ˜‰ …

    • You are right….but my son just started soccer, so all I need is to take a couple hundred of very distant shots of my son during his game (I can even walk away from the field by a quarter mile or 2) and I should have the upper hand…

    Tst, tst, tst, the 50-150 is wayyyyy more versatile (and cheaper, memory serving me well)

  4. I was joking of course. I kind of lost my fantasies in bird photography anyway, so no question that I would pick a 50-150 first. But my next investment is probably going to be something around 28-30mm.

    28-30mm ? That shouldn’t be too challenging optically, muhahahahaha….
