I strongly suggest the sony. It has the APS-C sensor @ 1.5x Great image quality, and the sigma's are actually better than I expected them to be. I shoot a 5dIII with L lenses, if you get one, you'll never go back! There's an adapter for the Sony that I got that lets me use my canon lenses on the sony with AF, IS, and Exif intact! It looks a little funny with the canon lenses attached though :P

After a night of drunken debauchery, Ace decided it was time to head on to another locale. So, the Mrs, the folks, and I all loaded up and headed out to place the tag. It was a perfect day for a family outing. This one is very easy, so enjoy.

The name of the area has been edited out of the sign :P


We pulled up at this site, and Ace just new that he'd have a HOOT of a good time playing among the MOUND shaped hills here. He thought there was talk of a 'crick', but we didn't see one....




Ace was enjoying clowning around





After some looking around, ace decided he'd like hunker down in this old hollowed out stump.





Ace told us he thought we were just a mere stone's throw away from a body of water that shared a name with The Confederate President, then he made camp, and drifted on off to slumber off those road beers.



The stump can be seen at the bottom right of the pic.

Just a couple more snaps from the ride.

Dad getting my better side:



My better half getting the better of me:



Dad lagging behind ..... at least until he passed me in triple digit fashion.... Old school hooligan......
I would be lying if I said we didn't hit 120, but don't tell my wife that.....or my mom.....

Believe Ace is Cold

I think ACE has been in the cold long enough. Going to try and go rescue him tomorrow and see if we can relocate him down south for awhile.

Ace is MIA

At the mounds, Ace is gone. Did anyone else pick him up?

Wasn't me. I almost went yesterday afternoon, but it's a place I ride pretty regularly so I opted to let y'all come get it.
