A gorgeous spring day with crisp clear light and a blue sky. Ideal conditions for the 25MP of the Sony a850.
I am finding that I am able to carry the camera with ease and I'm not sure why. After all my complaints about heavy cameras, why doesn't this one pose a problem? I am using it with one lens, but then I've done that previously. Admittedly its not a D3X but the camera and lens weigh in at just under 1500g, which is not light.
I am carrying it differently to how I normally carry cameras outdoors. I have it diagonally over one shoulder, in much the same way as a guitarist carries a guitar. Maybe its all my years of doing that making it feel comfortable to me!! Anyway it works.
