A short break to Germany and Switzerland. I took the a6500 and only one lens with me, the 18-105mm F4 G lens.

You might recognise the famous castle Neuschwanstein, it’s probably one of the most photographed castles in the world. I grabbed this shot quickly from the car park, which was lucky as shortly afterwards it stared raining and didn’t let up till we left. Unfortunately it came out a little soft when zoomed in to 100 percent, I probably wasn’t holding the camera still enough as I know this camera/lens combo is pretty sharp when handled correctly.

All of these shots were handheld and taken on the fly. The focal range of the 18-105mm G lens is very versatile, allowing you to capture wide-angle shots or zoom right in for close ups. I’ve not actually used this lens a great deal since buying it, but I’m looking forward to testing it against the Sony 16-70mm F4 that I also own.
