Hi Jerry

The title you've given to the thread suggests that you are no longer looking out for a new camera because the results from your existing setup are very good, good enough to make the expensive jump to new kit unnecessary. Since I see that you have the truly splendid Zeiss 16-70 f4 I'm not suprised you feel that way, but I'm replying to query why you chose to illustrate your point with tiny images that show absolutely nothing helpful to people who may be willing to learn from your happy circumstances. I don't mean to belittle your decision, nor to give offence to you, but nothing less than original images are suitable to accompany your thoughts.

Check the gallery page for larger images. Most folks don't post full size images for several reason. I personally post 1000 wide as my norm.

The second image is 510x768 in the biggest variant on the gallery page - that's a very small postcard at best and the subject requires pics that illustrate the qualty of the outfit that rendered the potential new purchase redundant. If you're copyright-nervous the only solution in this would be not to start such a thread at all.

With due respect, that is your opinion. I differ with it. BTW, maybe you could show some of your shots.

I look forward to that. The Zeiss lens is rather special; my avatar shot was taken with one on an A57. I was looking to replace my R1 and my A37 and all of my lenses with a secondhand A57 and the Zeiss you've got plus Sony's own SAL70300G SAM. While checking them out at Wex Photographic the Sony demo guy took my picture.

I didn't make the change because Sony anounced the RX10 that very week.

Why? They would not be at all relevant in this thread. The issue is simply whether a Nex camera with a rather nice Zeiss lens has adequately replaced the 'hope' of a replacement R-series model and judging that really needs an illustration of the image quality the outfit produces.

I have posted images here, so you can easily find them,  http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53379698 was one thread. Even got a runner up mention in Mini Challenge 331, but being either a good or bad photograper doesn't qualify or disqualify anyone from being able to say: 'Coo, that's a sharp, contrasty, high quality image.' Seeing only a postcard does.

Not wanting to argue the matter further; let us agree to disagree. Makes the world go round....
