Rawfa:It’s not really a rumor, but I’ve posted some photos I’ve taken on the remote northeast Brazil on several photos and I’ve been getting a lot awesome comments. Feel free to share them if you want to: http://www.talkemount.com/threads/10991/#post-85424

Giovanni:I am a long time reader of your excellent blog. It was instrumental in my selection of Sony mirrorless cameras (since the very first Nex5), a decision I never regretted.
I think your readers might be interested in my book “All things devoured” on decaying, abandoned places in Italy, if not for the photos per se, at least because it is entirely photographed with Sony mirrorless cameras, and with non-native lenses.The cameras I used are a Nex 5, a Nex C3 and an A7. The lenses I used include Canon nFD 50/1.4, Canon FD 200/4, Minolta 40/2 LM, Nikon AF-S 17-35/2.8, Nikon AI-S 135/2.8, Zeiss Contax 50/1.4 AE, Zeiss Contax 80-200/4 MM, Zeiss Contax G 45/2, Voigtlaender 15/4.5. Can you recognize the signatures in the photos? ;-)A free full preview is available at www.gmsacco.com
