A Tale Of Two Bodies…

I’ve really enjoyed using my Sony A7iii camera and lenses for the year or so I’ve owned them, except for one  (not so small) issue – the weight of it all.  OK, if I am just using one of the smaller prime lenses, like the 35mm f2.8 or 55mm f1.8, it’s just fine, but whenContinue reading “A Tale Of Two Bodies…”

Planned as a holiday rather than aContinue reading “North Coast 500 Adventure – Part 1”
