Glass Angel

① memo 20181220 ~ Glass Angel ~ Glass angel figurine in our Christmas tree – Holland.
First time, today, I tried a Sony SEL 18-105mm F/4.0 G OSS powerzoom ‘APC’ lens on my full frame Sony A7 Mark III camera, and after a lot of set-up testing , tried this nice shot tonight.
I have been working with very nice full frame prime lenses – the Sony 55mm F/1.8 Zeiss on this camera , and the Sony 28mm F/2.0 on the A7SII, but I felt this relatively light zoom ‘crop’ lens will be more versatile for my report work.
