Hope you have lots of joy with the new Sony, Pam, capturing many an excellent shot just like this one of this beautifully marked and coloured orchid bloom, the detail so crisp just where required with max. aperture at f/1.8.
Had you wanted all the petals to be sharp too f/6 might work and still leave the rear blooms nicely OOF.
But I do like the effect achieved at max. aperture.

Lovely first image from your new camera.
May there be lots to follow.
It's so difficult to advice people who ask "which camera should I buy" ?
Good luck with yours.
Thankyou Ronnie and Kate. I cropped this image quite a bit too Ronnie.GrinGrin
