    Hi everybody

    I sold all my professional equipment this week and bought myself a Sony NEX 5N with 18-55mm Lens. After seeing some high iso shots I can't wait to take it out to a concert venue. Hope santa brings me the Sony NEX 50mm F1.8 :D

    Hi Barbra, I use mine for extreme low light concert, bar poor lighting ....

    Use my minolta 1.4 and 1.7 mostly for these situations

    Welcome Barbara. The citizens get more diverse here every day it seems. :)

    Just curious- what prompted you to sell pro gear and buy a NEX?

    Thanks all :D

    @ Bimjo.. I sold my gear because I have a constant pain in my arm... caused by the heavy weight from the Nikon D3s and lenses. After the D3s I had a Nikon D700 and a Pentax K-5 but the pain did never get away. Last week I decided to sell everything and bought myself this camera because I don't want to quit photography!

    @ Deadbear77... Your low light pictures look great. Thanks for sharing!

    Ah, I know the feeling, I got my 5N form a similar reason. Honestly I really haven't missed the dslr as the image quality of the 5N is superb. I think you'll be happy with a NEX. :)

    Thank you all for your warm welcome :D

    Didn't get the change to make some low light pictures yet so I decided to make some pictures outside my house
    All pics are taken with the 18-55mm lens. Hope to get the 50 mm F1.8 real soon so I can take it with me to my favorite concert venue!
