    Uwe, there's something beautiful the way about you shooting aerials, not just because you have access!

    1947 Stinson (friend's plane).



    This was with the NEX-7 and same lens.

    The NEX-7 is too light and also EVF is not ideal (the X-Pro1 EVF would be worse because of low refresh rate). The X-Pro1 OVF is very useful for this kind of photography.

    Today I re-processed some images and now I like it a lot.



    100% Crop (altitude 1000-1500 feet)

    Uwe,
    I agree that the Xpro1 is great for aerials, no mirror slap=less vibrations. Here's a few from New England.

    Are you shooting from a balloon? That is of course ideal.

    I think the main benefit is also the OVF. This way I can see when a scene is entering the frame. In camera IS would be a major bonus.
