A55 Really Is Fun w/135mm f/1.8 ZA
1 month ago

I am having lots of fun with my used $25 A55. I tried it with my 135mm f/1.8 ZA (now that's a cost disparity between my camera and lens). LOL The 135mm lens is big and heavy compared to the A55 but it's kind of neat mounted with the camera.

I can't wait to try some portraits (fun lighting and flesh tones) with this camera and lens combo.

Well I think the A55 will be my small light weight camera solution for A-Mount (I just can't get my head around moving to E-Mount and more new lenses or adapters). My next camera will probably be the A99 II but if Sony came out with a new high end A-Mount camera in the size / shape / configuration of the A55 I would be first in line to purchase (A77 II is fantastic but enough bigger to make a difference).
