With some cloud cover in Dubai and the help of a little city haze, the usual mid day glare was reduced quite a bit. A trip to the Dubai Marina on a lazy day allowed me to capture this shot of the huge number of apartment blocks that line the edge of the Marina. It's an up market place with very expensive boats lining the Marina... but then again, this is Dubai so nothing is ever done on the cheap or at a small scale.
I've been very impressed so far with the 16mm pancake lens on the NEX-7. With a stopped down aperture it really can provide some decent sharpness.
