Christmas briefly came early for me! The lens that I had ordered as my Christmas present finally arrived yesterday, and I couldn’t resist a quick play before I put it away, just to check that it worked okay šŸ™‚ The lens is a fabulous Sony/Zeiss sonnar 55mm f1.8 for my favouriteĀ  little Sony A7 camera and after my quick session with it, I can say it’s a keeper. The sharpness and clarity are wonderful and it produces some beautiful bokeh. I’m looking forward to Christmas!

Anyway, this is one of the photos taken with the aforementioned lens and camera, I did have to crop it as the lens doesn’t focus quite as close as I wanted but that is no problem with the quality of images the Sony A7 produces.

Now back to Christmas preparations….
