Switch to Sony and other updates

I started this blog 4 years ago trying to force myself to write more in English. I hoped that it will help me improve my English skills (both vocabulary and grammar) and my writing skills by writing more often and consistent. If you scroll through previous posts, you can probably see that I failed at both.

I'm not sure what was the issue behind my inability to maintain the writing cadence. I assume is has something to do with my ambitions and expectations. I wanted to write more elaborate article. Not necessary long (like Wait But Why), but something that brings a bit more value than a regular news article. More like an opinion piece in a newspaper than a regular article. Something that either puts news and events into a bigger context and "connects the dots" or is about something I've been thinking for a long time.

As an attempt to bring me back to writing, I will try to lower those expectations. I will try to write more about mundane stuff and personal stuff, that might not be so relevant for others. Will see how it goes...

And to continue where I left in the last article when I said that I'm tempted to ditch Canon: I did it. I'm a proud owner of a Sony A7R IV + a bunch of GM lenses and I'm happy with my decision. Is not perfect by any means, but it has provided more than I could have got from Canon. No regrets so far. Idea for a future article: what are my impressions over the A7R IV after almost a year of owning it.
