TalkEmount - Sony Alpha E-Mount Camera User Group
So I've been very quiet for a while!! I mentioned some time back I've been working on a project, and that (along with preparing for our first baby due in Nov!) has kept be too busy to do my usual photography and foruming!
But said project is now done!
On the 16th August 2015 a very unique showcase event took place at the historic Stowe School in Buckinghamshire.
To compliment this, the event changed location later in the day to take advantage of the breath taking scenery of Burton Dassett Hills with fantastic results!
This was the inaugural Ultimate Noggy Meet and it was a huge success.
This event was the result of a small group of car enthusiasts coming together to pay homage to the very unique and celebrated "Nogaro" colour, beautifully worn by so many of Audi's classic and modern day models.
"Edition Noggy" is the name of the collective and we welcome any new "Noggy's" to become part of this very special movement.
Below is a collection of the video and pictures from the day, but please visit www.editionnoggy.com for more and also to stay up-to-date with our future planned events via our social media channels (see links at the bottom of the page) - we would be most grateful if you would Follow/Like/Share and spread the Noggy Love!

You can click through any of the images below to see full-resolution (42MP) captures from my Sony A7RII.
Most people who buy this lens will be looking for superb performance at the wide (16mm) end of the zoom range. In my opinion, the lens delivers nicely with great sharpness, color, and contrast.
There is some barrel distortion and moderate color fringing as well as light falloff, but all of these can be addressed automatically in camera as well as in leading raw converters such as Lightroom and Capture One.
ƒ/8.0 16.0 mm 1/60 320
ƒ/6.3 16.0 mm 1/160 100
Autofocus is quick and silent. I had no problems with hunting at any focal length.
I've had this little lens of a couple weeks now (actually over a months but it took an eternity for the adaptor to arrive). I can say already with confidence I really like this lens a lot. Spent some time in the city with it now I need to get up the mountain's.
