"Put me in coach!! I'll show you what I can do!!"
Because, you know, 24 megapixels, that isn't enough. :|
And .. as kids birthday parties approach or random family outings, I'd pick up the NEX-7 w/ the 18-55mm kit lens and do the dutiful "take a picture of my kid, please, camera-guy" bit. I'd turn over the images to the requestors and smugly think to myself, "Imagine if I had brought the REAL camera."
Then.. gearing up for Bahamas, Disney, summer photo walks and some hopeful travel this fall, I decided to change up things a bit. I'd use the D800 w/ a 14-24mm (on a tripod) for landscapes and starfields and the
NEX-7 with the 18-200mm lens for walk-about stuff, tele, sports & macro.
I started using this new 18-200mm last week, I'll post more on it later but the one sentence is:
I think this is going to be a winning combo!
I don't know why I'm surprised. This would be my third Sony Alpha camera, 2nd NEX-class and fifth Sony Alpha overall, if you include the film Minoltas that these cameras share DNA with. They've all been great.
