First Post with the NEX C3

I think that I'm liking this camera :).

 

Live view is something marvelous that I missed so much with the Canon 5D.

 

I traded my 50/1.2 for a 24/2 and I bought a Mamiya 55/1.4 for $9.00. This was shot with the Mamiya 55/1.4.

 

I love the colours that the NEX produces. I was worried about going back to APS-c, but the noise levels are fantastic, and the lenses maintain most of their character.

 

It is also nice that this camera with a lens weighs much less than the 5D alone.

 

The Mamiya 55/1.4 is an incredible lens. It is sharp wide open, and it is built great. The focus ring is so smooth, and it goes for 190 degrees for precision. It is thoriated and radioactive, but so far I haven't gained any super powers!

 

Hope you guys enjoy :)
