    Just made the switch from DSLR to mirrorless. Got tired of leaving my Nikon D90 at home because I didn't want to deal with it and the dogs at the same time so I sold it and my lenses. Went to the local store to handle some bodies and the clerk handed me an a6000. It was a bit big to fit in a jacket pocket, but I saw the a5000 and I love that I can just slip it into a pocket. I'm also loving the use of adapted manual lenses and the sensor is superior to the D90. So, I'm a new convert and just found this forum.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Here are a few shots from the Monterrey Bay Aquarium last week. I'm still sorting out the best technique to use with legacy lenses, but I'm having fun:eek: These were shot with the a5000 and Nikkor 2.5/105 ai

    Well done. Aquarium shooting can be tricky.
