    Hi all,
    After some lurking around I decided to switch forums from MU-4/3's to this place.
    Some of you will know me from there. I was active under the same user name in my
    digital pen days. The need for a bigger sensor and specially......better high noise performance lured me over to the Sony Nex fold. :smile: Since last Friday I am the happy owner of the Nex 3 with the 18-55 OSS kit lens. What a wonderful camera and as you probably know it is dirt cheap at the moment. Even in Holland.:wink:
    Anyway.....first post should be here, right? Hope to enjoy my time here and will post the first results soon.

    Best regards,


    Some of my work can be seen here.

    ah excellent! -- you're a great image-maker Martin, and I look forward to seeing some more of them ... even though you have gone over to the competition ...

    Martin, we're going to have a good time here with you and your photographs. I'm very glad you came over from across the hall with your NEX!:biggrin:

    If you feel like it please add your website link to your signature line so we can all get in there quickly whenever we want.:wink: I plan on delving deeper but I really, really like your "drain cover" for its design and fabulous IQ and color!:th_salute:

    Thanks Karen. It feels good to be here. I am afraid I will have to pass on the "weekly" invite. I am already heavy involved in a similar challenge (per month though) on another photographic community, which takes away to much time already. It is great fun though and good to push the envelope that way. Maybe......In the future, who knows.

    Ok,ok....As it happens I just looked at the guidelines.:wink: I have decided to play along and entered one of my first "Nex" pictures which seems to fit the theme. :smile:
