Departure to E but not really
Feb 18, 2014

I really want better resolution with good low light, and better video. I think the A6000 is going to provide this. My transition is going to be a bit strange. The E 16-50 lens apparently isn't so great. So I secured an A3000 with 18-55 lens for $200. The A3000 camera replaces the A300 as the backup/wife camera. She's been frustrated I'm hogging the A57 when she wants to take video. I also have an LA-EA2 coming, which I'll need for the Tamron 17-50, Sony 35, 55-300, and 24-85RS. No IBIS I'll compensate using bursting and using software to help me pick the sharp results quickly. The E lens lineup is very frustrating. So I think the A mount lenses will be with me for a while to come. Should another A mount camera come out before the May body A6000 release, I might cancel the switch, and sell the E parts, but I'm not holding my breath.

So I'll have one foot in E and the other in A land. I hope I can legally continue to post here, given that I'll be using an SLT still, with the adapter, without getting harassed. I'll continue to enjoy the A mount culture here and some of the quite enjoyable photos some people post here.
