New Camera (Sony DSC-H5) - New Pics

Thanks to SVTDavan for getting me off my duff and posting some of my newer shots up.
He mentioned there's "not much action in this forum".
Not much action in this forum?

These are shot right out my office window.
My "inspiration" in the morning, meaning, the Cathedral of St Helena:

A little closer:


I'm completely amazed at the macro prowess of this camera.
A little Lady Bug showed up one morning, and did a quick drafting check on one of my drawings:

Here's a 100% crop of the same shot:


This one has turned into one of all-time favorites now.
It's just one of those pics that don't come around too often.
Josephine looks so peaceful and comfy on the couch, and the lighting is so warm.
I love it!

What time do you come into work, the middle of the night?? It's deserted out there on the streets.

Nice shots, as everyone has said! I'm keen on seeing the results of the new DSC-H9 that's coming since it has a 15x stabilized zoom and Night Shot technology. I already have more cameras than any one person needs, but an advanced point n' shoot with big zoom and the ability to shoot in near darkness would be fun just for the heck of it.

LOL!!
That's 7:00am on a Friday (01/05/2007).
You're looking at our "rush hour".

I agree. That's looking like a great camera!
I was ready to take a hit on my H5 and pick up a new H9 till I found out that none of my add-on lenses (.7X, 1.7X, macro) or filters will fit.
Mega bummer in my book.

BTW, the H5 is going to be a great buy once the H7-H9 is released.
And, you're not giving up much in the mega zoom.
H5 = 36mm-432mm
H9 = 31mm-465mm
That extra bit of wide angle is nice though.
That's why I got the .7X to drop me down to 25mm when needed.

Here's a press release, and a quick review of the specs:

And, several threads on the H7-H9 here:
http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/forum.asp?forum=1009
The search is down at the moment, but it shouldn't be hard to find something in the threads.

And...
Thanks everyone for the compliments!
