    Hello all,
    I got back into photography in July of 2012 after a 20 year absence. I was getting ready to retire and wanted to add another hobby to help fill my free time.
    I was a photographer for about 35 years (amateur and pro) until 1992 when I move and lost my studio and darkroom.
    I chose the NEX-7 because I didn't want to carry around a heavy DSLR in my dotage :D. My primary photography interest are macro, landscape and birds.
    I am also a birder and woodworker.

    Welcome and enjoy. Many of us love the NEX platform exactly because of the size.

    Welcome Rick from another old guy. I'm new to the forum as of about a month ago. I have been in and out of photography since high school and that was 50 years ago. I am also a woodworker, more specifically a woodturner. I read way more on this forum than write.

    So hello from me and again welcome.

    Hello, Rick!

    Congratulations on your new camera. I am sure you will have a lot of fun with it. I use the same camera and after getting used to it, I always miss it a little when I use my other cameras. The size, the tilting screen and the image quality is really outstanding.
