Holiday time looms. We’ll also be attending two weddings while we’re there, so a couple of weeks before leaving for Europe, it’s time to start my usual agonising game about what camera kit to pack.
The Nikon option is usually a D800 and 14-24, 24-70 and 80-200 zooms, with either a spare body, or perhaps a couple of my much loved AI primes. All up with notebook computer? Around 13kg.
Or, the Sony NEX-7, manual 25mm Zeiss, 35, 50 and 135 Leicas. Spare body? I could pack the NEX-C3 and if I’m feeling very OTT, maybe the Voigtlander 15mm. In a small bag, this lot weighs-in at around 8kg.
Of course, but my difficulty is that I’ve been having so much fun in recent times with my D800 that I’ve barely touched the NEX.
So, I thought I’d go back and look at some NEX images I shot in Scotland last year to help me make a decision. To remind myself how the NEX and manual lenses perform on landscapes, before I start packing in earnest.
Decision made, I think.

I liked your images. I will leave it at that.
Take the Nikon! These Sony pictures are terrible. Colour is lousy, the resolution is so bad I could hardly recognize the heron perched on the fence and the vignetting is awful.
Man, what stunning photographs.
Collect the Leica M240 I promised you while you’re here – that way, you only have to carry some Leica/Zeiss M mount lenses on one leg of the trip – you know it makes sense…!!!
