Abisko National Park, North Sweden
Located in Sweden close to the Norwegian border between Kiruna and Narvik. All shots taken with the Sony NEX-7 and the 18-200 Superzoom (Sony, 1st version). All images are OOC JPEGs.
No, it really doesn’t need a fast prime lens to shoot nice images. Superzooms do not necessarily ruin everything. Here are a few shots, all OOC JPEGs, taken during the summer holiday in Ticino, southern Switzerland. All but one taken with the 18-200 Sony Superzoom on an NEX-7. The shot of the statue was also made with the NEX-7, but with an adapted Contax G 45 mm f2.0 Planar.

A few shots from a visit to the Ballenberg museum near Meiringen and Brienz, and from a boat trip on the Lake Thun, both Canton Bern, Switzerland.
A sunday afternoon walk through Thun. All photos were taken with the NEX-7 and the Sony 18-200 Superzoom lens. Who says that good photos can only be made with prime lenses?
This one is my third image that made it into Flickr’s EXPLORED. It reached #75 on 13 April 2012.
While I am still waiting for my ordered NEX-7, I am using a NEX-5 which I bought with the SEL18200 superzoom in a kit box (BTW: the kit was 300 Swiss Francs cheaper than the lens alone on eBay! So the NEX-5 is for free, and will be sold on ebay as soon as the NEX-7 arrives). Yesterday I updated the firmware to version 5, which has focus peaking (finally!). Manual focus is so easy, fast and a pleasure with it! Love it.
Time to attach my two Contax G lenses (Sonnar 90 mm f2.8 and Planar 45 mm f2) to it.
