These pictures are (almost) prime like with the 16MP 5T, because they were designed to work together perfectly with the 16-50 kit lens, especially at f8. I still own that combo, along with the 55-210, which also worked really well on the 5T. That is why the super small, well built, NEX cameras started putting Sony above and beyond all other APS-C cameras on the market, at that time.

Although I have not used the 5T or either kit lens since getting the a6300, 18-135, FE 70-300G, it took great pictures while I was using it with the both old kit lenses. Those two pictures below compare very well with any of the latest A6x00 cameras/lenses. Thanks for sharing these excellent pictures to show how well this combo works!

Got hold of a cheap nex 5t, seems the 16mp sony sensors had better/ more preferable to me colours than the 24mp i had in the a6500.

Also, as you said, the colors were really nice, IMO! I got my 5T/16-50 combo on Amazon for only $300 on a super good sale new, which got me started in the Sony APS-C format. There were no 1" sensor fixed lens cameras that could compare to it at that time, so I bought it, and glad I did.

Just think, you would need the a6100, a6400, a6600 with the 18-135 or 16-55 at 5 to 10 times the price to equal or beat those two pictures today. Wow, how things have changed, not to mention the size or weight.

This is lovely. Made me think about Isaac Newton and his genius mind right away.

Thanks for your kind words!

It came out a bit too dark. I have to do some post processing on it.

Was able to convince my wife to play this week (she plays about once a decade!!). We had a 7am tee time and the course was magical at that hour.
