What I want to do, for the early part of 2015, is to make my collection of EF lenses work with the Sony mirrorless cameras (NEX-6 and A7) through the use of smart AF adapter. I have about a dozen Canon EF lenses, most of them L lenses, that have not been used much since I do most of my shooting with mirrorless cameras. These lenses include my favourites, 35/1.4L, 50/1.2L, 85/1.2L, 135/2 L and the now broken 200mm f1.8L. I have waited this long for the smart adapters to mature, and I think it's now the time to do it. I will write a separate post detailing my findings on the adapters. If the adapter works out well, I would not need to buy native Sony E-Mount lenses, as my Canon lens collection covers 16mm to 200mm, plus the 1.4x and 2x teleconverters.
Buy fewer lenses. Last year alone I added more than 20 lenses to my collection, mostly obscured, non-35mm format lenses. I did enjoy most of them and I made some nice pictures with some. But this year I will concentrate on using them to make pictures instead of buying more. I will be happy if I can manage to buy less than half of what I bought last year.
Shoot less. Yes, shoot less and not more. This may sound strange, but I want to shoot fewer pictures but more keepers. In other words, put more thought into making the pictures.
We will see how it goes :)
