Default An fz40 Moon

I haven't used my Panasonic for a couple of months, since buying a NEX. On Saturday night I was out with a group at a great coastal location shooting the moonrise, stars, burning steel wool, etc. and when my battery finally ran out I pulled out the fz40 for some moon shots:

Very neat, clean shot of the moon.
NEX 3 or 5? How's the performance?

Hi Raghu,

The NEX-5 (since the 3 doesn't have any remote capability). I love it! It's great at higher ISO and really good for manual focus with old lenses. Here are a couple of shots from this week:

Nice looking moon. And I like that first NEX shot. Well, both, but first one more.

Thanks, Mick. Both images are amazing. My son has an eye on NEX-5. Going by your images, I think it will make a great present for him.

Yes, it's a very capable camera, and it has great features for manual focus which allow you to work easily with vintage lenses. I am using the kit 16mm, an old Konica 50mm f/1.4 and an old 80-200mm Tokina zoom. The zoom cost me $5 on eBay and it's really sharp.
