The name of the street is somewhat surprising but according to some accounts Ship street was originally names Sheep Street but over time it was pronounced Ship Street.
Today I used a Sony NEX-7 with a Sony 85mm GM which cost more than the ten year old camera [I think that i paid about Euro 2000. As the NEX-7 is not a full frame camera the 85mm is equivalent to about 130mm which means that the images are very much compressed which is what I wanted.
The Sony 85mm GM is an excellent lens but does have some issues. The SSM ring-linear drive does make noise and in the case of my copy is is very noticeable and annoying.
