Sony A7r at Mardi Gras World New Orleans

Face to face.
We took a break from eating oysters in New Orleans and took a quick tour of Mardi Gras World. Mardi Gras World supports a third of the floats that are paraded on the days leading to Fat Tuesday in February. They are responsible for the design and upkeep of all the decorations on the floats.

The tools at hand were the Sony A7r and the 40mm M-Rokkor. We shot in Aperture mode, seemingly stuck at f/2.4. Sharpness at f/2.4 is substantially better than wide open at f/2.0 on the Minolta CLE lens.

Deal: Sony a6000 + 18-55mm + 55-210mm for $650

Save $500 from MSRP on the a6000 twin lens bundle from costco. The bundle is also $150 less than from Amazon, although the lens in the costco bundle is the 18-55mm instead of the 16-50mm in the Amazon bundle. Both lenses are about equal in performance.
