Think I have just found my photographic soulmate, having owned about every marquee manufacturers cameras i have just invested in what I believe to be the best i have ever used.
Sony A7ii, now into my mid 60s, weight was my main consideration with image quality paramount.
In my search for the ideal combination I have just invested in the Zeiss 24-70, replacing the Sony 28-70, however that lens is now second rater.
I have found the site excellent and have posted 5 images under my Avater chorkie-dad

You are a very good photographer, your flickr site is excellent, you clearly like portraiture and B&W, portraiture is something I've never had any real interest in, but I can see the appeal.
I don't know if we have ever bumped into each other though.
However I'm always willing to meet up for a shoot or just a coffee or beer so maybe we can arrange something, I have a couple of friends in Aberdeen who also shoot with the Sony gear so we could arrange a day out whatever.

At nearly 65 I doubt if I could keep up with you Paul. Yes I have found a new interest in Mono, especially now that you can download Free Nik Silver efex pro software normally over £100, please try it

I use the NIK software a lot, but for colour not B&W, since using the NIK I've found I can get a similar result using LR but it requires a lot more effort ...and nerve. I prefer to use LR or Photoshop for B&W but I'm not a big B&W shooter.
Most of our shoots are quite leisurely so I don't think there's any problem with "keeping up", we interrupt our shoots with lunch and coffee breaks, after all it's just for fun.

Would be nice to share some favorite locations, going to take camera with me next week and possibly take a few images around Stonehaven

Hi Bill
Welcome aboard fellow Scot.
I am one of Kiwi Paul's mentioned friends (I think :D )
Would be nice to meet up sometime for a chat
