On A Little Rant....

With the acquisition of the Sony A77ii from my beautiful wife, in exchange for a new Canon, I find myself back at a learning curve. My previous camera was a Canon 1D MKii. Having sold it nearly two years ago, it's a bit overwhelming learning the new technology with the Sony. I like to shoot manual every chance I get, but I also favor using aperture priority mode. I have noticed immediately that the Sony lacks sharpness. This could also be related to my lens choice. Having to compensate and offset the af system to work with my Sigma's last night, it seemed to fare a bit better. The crispness and clarity just are not what the Canon produced, but that is my only gripe. I have been using Sigma lenses for a few years and cant argue the price to quality comparison. I used them on the 1D and they were just as fast and clear as my Canon lenses. Since I wont have any new images until the end of this month, I thought it fitting that I post some of my favorites from years past. Going forward everything will be new work, and I will post the exif data for anyone interested.
