I want to pick up the 70-200mm f4 G OSS in hong kong. Its about half the price of the UK. Only thing is, in the words of Andy grey, the a6000 is somewhat hanging out the back of it!


Haha! Yeah that looks huge! Is that all lens hood on the end I take it? Styling seems a bit weird with the bits of white.

My next purchase is a similar lens, the 40-150mm 2.8 PRO (80-300mm equivalent) lens in March. Looking forward to it!

I like the top shot Advocate, I'd like to see it with the ice cream stall thing removed.

Now that the NEX series has been rebranded as Alpha some of the higher end lenses have been modified to a similar cosmetic style as the higher end Alpha lenses. I find the 18-200mm looks completely daft on the NEX-6 but to be fair to Sony it was apparently developed for their E-mount video cameras which makes more sense.

I have a small carbon Manfrotto tripod which seems to work fine but in all honesty I very rarely use it.

walking pole with a camera head on is great if out and about in the great outdoors.

I've been tempted to buy one Ras, and think I was looking at both those options.

Didn't pull the trigger though, as I know I wouldn't get much use out of it, and they are not cheap.

I have a jessops tripod, rarely used but handy when I need one. I also have a small and medium Joby pod which get used more out and about. (still rarely, especially with the speed of the D7100).

This is the stuff I use the tripod for. Finally getting my head around composing macro shots a bit better and using DOF more effectively, I think. The wallet pic below has over 5K views in a little over 24hrs, no idea why as I thought it the crappiest of the lot. Click through for larger images.

Tested the 70-200 lens today quickly in Taiwan. Wow! It's amazingly sharp! Hope to take some great pics of wacky harajuku people in a few days in Japan!

Perhaps it's because they think they will be seeing this famous old geyser? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Faithful

Nice pics! I can see all of them now. Only the toy truck would load on my phone for some reason. Although just checked again and can see all of them now. Odd... Sly tagging from Fods there! ;)

I know, bloody weird. I thought I could post 4 pics and turns out he rules changed and it's only 2. So I wasn't going to put that one in. Next Monday is "Bread".... I think being creative with that will be a stretch for me. :idea: :?:
