I guess this is all about personal perspectives but when you are a fly of some description or another your world is probably no bigger than 1Km square if that. On a technical front the more I use the 90 mm Sony Macro lens (FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS) I am even more impressed. I had one or two issues with the lens to start off with but know it is turning out to be a real stunner. The lens is on a Sony A600 and the performance from the sensor first rate – both of these images have been tightly cropped and yet the detail is very very good.
Of course the A6000 is a 2 model old camera which if you are to believe the hype about the latest cameras makes it really only suitable for dustbin. This goes to show the barrier camera manufacturers have hit when trying to sell their newer models which may be great if you are a budding video camera person but if you are like me a boring old still photographer more interested in landscape/nature then there really isn’t any reason to pay the extra £1000 for the latest model with all its 4K nonsense. I am sure that the sensor might be a just a fraction better as well as the tracking autofocus – not one of the A6000’s best points – but it is certainly not worth all the extra money for a non professional camera. (For professional I am taking about working conditions rather than image quality)
BTW both of the insects captured here are no more than 1.5 cm in length.
