    Maybe a touch too much blue? There's almost no more detail in the bottom "berries?"


    Going along with the blue theme...

    You purposely used THAT lens?

    Why do I bother?

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    I take it out to the lake and biking trips (like this past weekend). I didn't think I would be doing any macros, but hey, turns out it can do that too!

    It's light weight, expendable, and is covered by the Sony ADH along with the camera so I just throw it around.

    Unless you're pixel peeping and not printing up large pictures or posting large on the web, it's perfectly acceptable IMO. It's plenty good in some situations.

    the kit lens works great for bright situations and the MFD is pretty good.
    AF is fast as well.
    i kinda miss mine.

    Thank you ... we have spent far too long in discussion of this ... well, you know ... there are times ... you guys regress for the darndest reasons. One or two 'reasonable' shots are not the "truth-tellers" for the story.
