Sometimes, going from one step to another will lead you to a point of no return. Ladies and gentlemen, the GXR body with its expensive companion, a Leica 35mm f3.5.
(Similarly the author just checked out the Sony A77. Its focusing is decidedly faster – even for some tricky reflexive black surface -- and way beyond the performance of A55. This comes with a price for sure, roughly a top-up of HK$4,000 )
Well, at some point in your life, either your mum or your wife already asked you to stop going into photography. Now, there is no way to return but to save up money.

Fact is, unfortunately, some of these peculiar behaviours are becoming easily felt in Hong Kong. For example, probably except in the MTR Central Station at the CBD, people on the platform will rush onto the next train arriving before passengers can manage to drop off. The latest similar experience the author had was a near-stampede by a troop of Chinese woman visitors with luggage cases who tried to push people (including some children) in the lift car back once the lift arrived at the ground floor. Hong Kong seems to be vanishing in the shadows of the comrades, who are generally ostentatious in appearance and indifferent at heart -- the worst combination possible!

Recent weeks have seen oceanic visitors to Hong Kong including the Tura nor Planet Solar, the world’s first solar boat on circum-global voyage, and the USS Boxer, an amphibious attack ship of US. Their appearances may have reminded us of how lucky Hong Kong to have a harbour so very deep that virtually all sorts of ships can moor at the facility close enough to where spotting and photographing them are extremely convenient.
Thanks to the panoramic mode of the A55, shooting the above scenes has never been easier with good results.
