Sparrows in the hedge by the side of the Grand Western Canal. All snapped with the Sony 55-210 zoom lens. I’d love a lens that could go a bit wider, but the nice thing about this one is that it fits quite neatly into a coat pocket, so I can take it with me when walking, without needing to take a bag. Camera on one pocket, long zoom in another.

Autofocus speed is a bit of a weak point for the NEX range, but I was quite happy with how well it picked out the birds, rather than ending up focussing on the branches they were between.
