    Evening,
    Been posting on Mu-43 for a while as I have an E-M5.
    Just bought a second hand Nex-6 to give Sony a go.

    Welcome Jason. I too arrived here via Mu-43. Show us some pix from that NEX-6 when you've taken some that you like.

    Thanks for the warm welcome all. Much appreciated.
    The Nex should be here by the end of the week (public holiday today).
    And I'd be lying if I said I hadnt already been eyeing off an A7 *whistles innocently*

    So I may have accidentally tripped on my credit card and picked up a second hand A7 +28-70 for a price I couldnt say no to.

    I used to have a D800 (fantastic camera). Loved having full frame, but it just got *so* heavy after not much time. I'm looking forward to that wonderful, wonderful tiny DoF :D

    IT ARRIVED!!
    From just five minutes play (I'm at work) I love it. Handles well, the weight is 'just right'.
    About my only criticism is the eye piece. Not really a criticism; because I wear glasses and I have this thing on my face called... a nose! I usually end up ordering an extended or larger eye cup for all my cameras.
    However there seems to be ZILCH available for the A7??
