Re: good focus, good zoom range

Some of my last pictures of 2020. I had no problem to get a focus lock in dim light. The first one was at 18 mm focused on the white painted pine cone between the flowers, probably 0.4 m in front of the lens, and the second one at 135 mm about 3 m away, showing focus on one of the eyes with the smaller green square. Definitely the keeper rate went up for me and I'm happy that I don't have to swap lenses. Yes, focus performance depends mostly on the camera, and that's the main reason I decided to get the A6100, but I wanted 18-135 for a while and I'm glad that I bought the lens too.
