For 2020 the Weekly Prompts Photo and Word Challenges have been merged into one, the first being Something New.
The something new for me was a different camera last year. As a long time Olympus user I picked up a small, mirrorless Sony to continue my experimentation and testing of various lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera.
I’m rather enjoying the camera to the point that if it wasn’t for the bag full of very good Olympus lenses that won’t adapt I would be using it almost exclusively.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Stylish.
After a couple of false starts to the challenge I thought about my testing of various lenses adapted to fit a small mirrorless interchangeable lens camera this summer.
With the growing popularity of mirrorless cameras it has become stylish to adapt a wide variety of lenses to these cameras.
Although I was testing the adapted lenses partly because I was putting together a compact, lightweight camera kit after an accident left me with restricted movement in the right shoulder and a weaker right arm.
