    I used the NEX-6 with SEL55210 as well as the Rokkor 300mm 4.5 , Canon FD 24mm 2.8, and others. Just a few samples here.
    More to come as I sit down tonight to work on them . :)
    The first one is over 50 years old according to the information there.



    UPDATE: Added a few more pics...somehow not as good as the first ones. I will do one last check to see what else I got worthy of posting.
    I like the parrots how they were posing for me and I got that one shot where they looked like a nice couple on a romantic pose :D

    The Flamingos remind me of Miami Vice :D

    Anyways, hope you like them.

    ^^^Hmm, yeah me too. Saw that movie in a theater in Amsterdam while on holiday (I must have been in my early teens?). I think the cage bokeh adds to the intensity of the image --great work.

    That is very kind of you!
    I will surely post more. I love sharpness which is one of the reasons I have been looking at FF and also why I get upset when my NEX-6 misses the focus so I then switch to manual again :D



    Thanks amigo! Appreciate all the kind words here :)

    I took comfort in seeing the cage background, considering that the drop of water on it's hooked beak, would normally be blood ! LOL
