If Nikon can deliver on the eye AF then they definitely become more of a contender in the mirrorless "race." It seems like a very practical system so far unlike Canon (in my opinion).

It looks like there's some parallax distortion in the first photo, but not in the second. Why is that? Do you think the converging lines add or detract from the first photo?

Not seeing it. Mind pointing out where in the frame this is? <edit> if you are talking about the fe28 images, that makes sense. I tried to remove the massive amount of distortion from the first image at the mosque but not much luck. One of the reasons I sold it and went with the cy 28 2.8 before selling that and going with a ZE 25/2 :)

A few from India and Nepal:

My apologies, the 1st 2 images scrolled off my screen. I was indeed referring to the 3rd image of the mosque. Those photos provide good insight into those lenses, thanks!

Anyone have a recommendation for an inexpensive ($100ish or less?) mic that's a couple steps up from the on-board mic? It's not for anything mission critical, just family stuff like bdays and the odd recital.

TIA

you'll need to decide between directional vs stereo. Built in is stereo, it catches noise from all direction, while a directional catches sound where you point it, and that eliminates a lot of background noise (people chattering). I really like my directional video mic pro, but I have an older version that has a flaw, no indicator light to show if the mic is on or off, and sometimes I leave it off and then get no audio -?

other than that, I use the Rode mic and it's real nice audio quality.

For a wired mic, the Rode VideoMicro Compact On-Camera Microphone gets good reviews.

I use the Rode Video micro for on the camera audio, works great for a small non battery mic.

it was advertised as a tougher card, stronger, more resistant to extreme weather. Also, no lock switch! I really hate that switch.

Thanks to mystik610 showing me what a C stand can hold up to I broke down and finally bought my first two C stands. I'm cheap so I got the $99 special flashpoint C stands. I will say they are much stronger than my aluminum folding stands. Should be fine for a dad that will use them a few times a year. I would hope to get 20+ years of use from them this way
