First day with the 55-210/NEX 6 combo...

Hi everyone still learning my way with the NEX 6 and this morning I took the SEL 55-210 out for a stroll. First time with this lens and I'am surprised at lack of noise with the auto focus. And the results are great considering the nock down price you can get it in OZ at the moment.

First bunch of images taken as I walk through the streets towards the lake gave me the chance to get the close up flower images out of the way.  

This fellow had seen better day's.

On to the lake shore and the forrest on the edges.

The birds were working over a school of fish along the shore, this one needed a little cropping.

Made my way along to the jetty.

To find the school of fish seeking shelter beneath it.

As they moved closer to the shore and into the shadows the shutter speed was dropping away so I went slower still to catch some movement.

So I believe the 55-210 a handy addition to my NEX 6, much better than the old Minolta 75-300 I had been using. Auto focus alone is worth it but its also quick and silent, and seeing these first results the sharpness not to bad either.
