New Camera!

Back in February of 2016 I was looking to upgrade my camera and had the opportunity to purchase Sony's then brand new A7R mk2. 42 megapixels, full frame, stacked image sensor, and the ability to shoot 4K video. I had hands on experience with Sony full frame cameras in my position at a camera store in Upstate NY and really liked the look the cameras gave images. A problem for me at first was that I was a lifelong Canon user. No brand debates here, I don't care. Shoot what you've got. And that's what I always had.

Some research and saving later, I pulled the trigger on the body, one native E-Mount lens (a Sony/Zeiss 35mm f/2.8) that I knew would be a workhorse for me, and a Metabones autofocus adapter that allowed me to continue using my Canon lenses. It's been a love affair ever since. I have made some of my best prints with this setup. There has also been a return to enjoyment with using old vintage lenses which slow my down and allow me to blend my love of analog and digital. Two Asahi Pentax manual lenses are usually in my bag at all times.

I had to wait two months to take receipt of my new camera. Red tape given my position at a camera store. When I finally got it, my next day off I took to the streets of downtown Glens Falls just to test things out.
