    Thank you for the complement!

    For my blog postings of yesterday and today, the images were taken with the new camera that Cindy bought me as a combined birthday/anniversary/holiday gift earlier this week — a Sony NEX-5N, using the standard 18-55mm kit lens. This is the camera I intend to use for all my image entries from this point forward, although eventually I plan on using two zooms designed to be used specifically with the NEX line — the 18-55 and the 55-210 — as well as an ultrafast 50mm prime.

    A few earlier postings last week were captured with an older Leica D-LUX4 digicam that I own, but the vast majority of all the images posted by me on this blog were taken with an iPhone 4S, 4 or 3GS. Any images that I attribute to Cindy were also taken by an iPhone 4 or 3GS, although she's planning to begin shooting with a bigger camera as well. Anyone that says the cell phone cameras are junk has not really seen what they're capable of taking these days.

    The NEX-5N is the hottest digital camera I think I've ever seen and it brings spectacular high-end quality down to an affordable level. Additionally, now I can use legacy rangefinder lenses on a digital camera and get excellent results. Check out the images I posted to Flickr earlier today (http://goo.gl/TqeaO); they were all hand-held in low light with the Nex-5N, using a 1955 Leica Summicron lens that Cindy's dad gave me about 13 years ago. I am absolutely floored by what that camera is capable of delivering.

    I should add that if you maximize your web browser to full-screen mode (usually hitting the F11 key within Windows) and click on the newer images I've been uploading, they'll be displayed at nearly the same size as your computer screen. Hit F11 again to return your browser to the size it was previously.
