First outing with the 5r
May 10, 2013

I put the 5r in my Vespa's trunk and went to Swami's beach in Encinitas, CA this afternoon.

I don't have an evf yet but I set the LCD brightness to "sunny weather," and with peaking and magnification, I had little trouble focusing the old 35-105 Nikkor. Still, I'll probably get some autofocus lenses to complement the one AF lens I have, the 16mm. That lens is ok but my copy is very soft wide open and the left corners are always soft.

BTW, I kind of like the touch screen, resistive or not. It's maybe a bit gimmicky but I find it fun to use.
