I am in the very slow process of migrating away from Nikon and dslr’s to Sony and mirrorless technology. As I said, this is going to be a very slow process, mainly do to budget and how much it costs to switch systems, but I have made the first step and picked up a Sony a6000, which is their flagship crop sensor camera, at least for now.
One of my goals for the new a6000 was to use it as my primary camera for this years #WE35 project, which I am a part of. I started the project using my Nikon D610 and a Nikon 35mm f2 lens. While I really do like this combo, I really did want to find something much smaller and lighter. My new kit consists of the Sony a6000 and an old, pre-ai, Nikon 24mm 2.8 lens.
I am a huge fan of old Nikon glass. IMO, while a lot of the new lenses are amazing, the old Nikon glass is special. The design and attention to detail on these old lenses is something we just don’t see with things manufactured today, regardless of how expensive they are.
Ok, with all that said, you might be wondering why I am sharing an image of a rainy windshield with this post, and it is actually quite simple, we have had a lot of rainy days recently and this is really the only chance I have had to shoot with my new setup. :-)
