The change (what do you think?)

5 Years ago I bought a Sony A77 with some A-mount lenses. I love to work with this camera; it’s very ergonomic and, once all settings in place, a great camera to work with. Unfortunately Sony withdrew itself from the South African market and ‘rules’ the African continent now from Dubai with offices in Botswana and Namibia. So I was thinking about buying the A99ii with a macro lens and guess what: they don’t sell these anymore; at least not on this continent.Β  But in the rest of the world still available. So I tried Amazon and other suppliers and guess what their answer was: (something like) ‘US-law prohibits export of lithium batteries’ …

To make a long story short: I acquired locally a brand newΒ  Canon camera with lenses:

So here I am, waiting for the delivery tomorrow or the day after. Hopefully Canon stays in South Africa πŸ˜‰ and I hope I made a good choice (mind bogging selection in the choice between Nikon and Canon but those Canon lenses are ‘state of the art’ that’s why.
BTW I will still use my Sony camera and lenses. They are very dear to me.

    1. Zal een paar weekjes duren. Camera komt moren of overmorgen en dan moet ik eerst de handleidingen doornemen (de lensen moeten ook speciaal worden ingesteld); vervolgens wat proefjes doen en als dat achter de rug is kan ik het bos in… πŸ˜‰ Groetjes uit Napier
