And then the tide decided to change.
I am extremely greatful to a friend of mine who wise to remain anonymous, that they wanted to buy me a new camera. I was originally, going to get the #a6000 and be satisfied. But opportunity presented itself. With their more than willing blessing... seriously they repeatedly told me to "do what you want" so I did. You are looking at my new partner: #sonya6500 w/ #18to135mm lens. Plus, I asked if I could add on a lens. (Personally, I was well prepared for a no and be done with it) They friggen agreed. Seriously?! So, I first went online and searched to see what could be the "best" lens for the a6500 for portrait. Ladies, gents, everyone in between, THIS lens came up as favorite. The #zeiss55mm18 lens. And I'm trying to see how the heck it's the most "cheapest" in it's class with that price tag. The sharpness is INSANE! Plus it's autofocus THANK YOU!
Anyway, this will be my new and permanent set up. Plus my go to #16to50mm and my #meike35mm lens.
Why did I choose this? It's currently the top make in the series with ALL the fixings attached like built in Steady Shot. Another reason is I wanted the extra jump to get better. I mean it's why I wanted to upgrade in the first place. I'm not committed to this journey, so I should make sure I get the tools. Whther later (as I thought it would be anyway) or sooner (still wondering how I got lucky). With this new camera, lens and just set up, I promise to improve my photo out put. I literally have no excuse not to after what this mini tank has in store for me.
Thank you @sony @sonyalphapro for creating amazing products. And thanks @bestbuy for being on point with the in store pick up order.
Oh, and the name of my camera is #Diggory!
