    I received my Sony A6000 it's been years since I had a 'proper' camera. Really enjoying it so far, looking forward to learning and improving. Here's a few from Day 1: DSC00388.jpg

    If I'm honest a good 90% of what I take will be of mine & friends dogs. But I've been snapping everything today ;)

    Yeah combination of playing with settings, and dying light at dusk. I get my 30mm f1.4 lens in a few days which should help some in lower light. I'm noticing the kit lens is quite sharp in good light, but not so great in low light.

    should be just as sharp - try allowing auto ISO to keep shutter speed up with open aperture

    Thanks, I'm definitely in a 'trial & error' stage, but enjoying it all the same.

    I don't think they're oversaturated tbh, not sure what Jim's looking at :devil: ;)

    The dog pic's nice and sharp, the flowers still look pretty soft though.

    I'm definitely struggling with soft results. I think it's me rather than the lens, does this looks sharper? @snerkler @shotokan101

    Sorry, I'm proper laughing here :rotfl: I have no idea why I had the aperture like that, I think I was trying wide open and closed to see what difference it made.

    ...then there's something wrong with "your" processing as the background flowers both show "halo's" - which the 2nd post above doesn't ?

    Can you seriously say you see no difference in the two originals then ?

    Unless he's edited the post (which I see no evidence of) saturation looks pretty much the same on both to me. I've just now saved both to my phone to check on there too and I'm struggling to see any difference. We are talking posts 13 and 16 aren't we?
