Fashion Remix gets a bit more competitive every year and a bit more over the top. This year I only brought the Nex-7 - lighting on stage was updated so exposure was less challenging. Shot in IA - Intelligent Auto - and sometimes I hate to say that I use Auto - but man -- it's a damn good setting when I don't have the ability to adjust focus and shoot. I can just shoot and it's there. And regardless of the reviews - the 18-55mm is a very, very capable and sharp lens.
