My main interest is street photography and the main purpose of OSX64, an experimental website, is to make my collection of 100,000 photographs available to the general public. Because of the the size of the catalog the task is way more complicated than one might expect so the site is constantly being changed as I try new ideas. If you do encounter any problems or if you wish to use any of my photographs please contact me using the contact form. EQUIPMENT USED BY WILLIAM | Street Photography | William Murphy

This is wanted for Christmas but I did not get it

The Sony SEL24F18Z E-Mount lens is a fast wide-angle Carl Zeiss lesns ideal for landscapes, city-scapes and group photos. The wide maximum aperture and superior optics make this lens ideal for shooting in dimly lit settings. A minimum focus distance of 16cm provides close-up capability.

I ordered this camera many months ago but unfortunately the launch had to be delayed because of floods in Thailand. It is due to be re-launched in March but I may no longer have the funds to pay for it.
