Here’s the link to buy it at the ridiculous discount that was offered yesterday. $498 with the 18-55 lens

A new version of the 5 series has been announced which includes wifi but won’t be out for two months and is listed at a price of $748, the NEX-5R.

I’ll take my camera at that discount and in fact I did, buy it for the Mrs for her birthday.  Shhhhhh. Don’t tell.

This is the new one which is available for pre-order-

The Camera I’ve Been Using This Past Year Just Got A Huge Discount On Amazon From $698 to $498. It’s What I Use To Take All Those Gloucester At Dawn Photos Like This One! Gloucester At Dawn Good Harbor Beach Life Guard Chair 6:34AM 9/15/12

My NEX-5N which you’ve witnessed this past year and what I attribute to a huge portion of the fun I’ve had taking photos.  it has a huge sensor in a compact form and I can’t recommend it enough. And for the price they slashed it down to it is an absolute NO BRAINER!

It was $698 and they cut $200 off on Amazon.  I’m telling you don’t even think, just buy it and you’ll be psyched you did.  I’m getting one for the Mrs. as soon as I finish typing this.  I haven’t seen this deal any where else so I don’t know how many are available at that price but if it’s still there grab one with the kit lens.  You’ll be happy you did.

I have a love hate relationship with this tree.  when it blooms it is beautiful but every year it gets smoked by these small green inchworm looking things first and then these shiny beetles and looks nice for roughly 3 weeks out of the year.

I’ve chronicled the life of this Kwanzan Cherry tree for the past 4 years here

here are some of the blooms from this year-
