    I took my NEX6 and a few lenses over to the orchid conservatory for an afternoon of shooting today. I used the 50mm 1.8 OSS, two old Nikkor macros and a Lensbaby. I am overall very happy. Still trying to decide if I want to get rid of the NEX6 for an OMD (for the IBIS) but I am actually very happy with these and may just stick to the Sony camp. I found focus peaking a true bonus, which Olympus lacks of course.

    Let me know what you think!









    ...and a shot of my lunch!

    Lovely shots. The second frog shot wins though. I'd stick with the NEX6 the focus peaking is a priceless to tool to have.
