Just wondering, I notice next to af/mf there's a selection for 0.9m or 1.6m
What is that for and which one should I keep it at?
Thanks !

That's your minimum focus distance. If you're shooting further than 1.6m from the lens, then keep it at 1.6m. If shooting closer, then go for the .9m

You can keep it at .9, but I think the main idea is that it will focus faster, and possibly more accurately if it is on 1.6m for objects that far or further. And more accurately and faster @ .9 for objects closer than 1.6m.

That switch is for the AF limiter. Leave it on .9m if you are going to be working relatively close to your subject (IE: Portraits). Leave it on 1.6m if you are going to be at a distance (IE: Sports / Wildlife)


EDIT: Haha split second timing ;)

LOL! I read what that turnip was saying on flickr :rolleyes:

Dankata, the colours you pull in that series (and the images themselves) are outstanding!

Just a quick shot in the back yard (no PP, just resize via PS). I forgot how much I missed this lens and i'm glad I picked up another copy. Now I just need to find the time to go out and do some real shooting with it.

Nice P-Rod set. Just received these SBs as a gift from the lady friend. Absolutely obsessed with this artist so I've been wanting these for a long time!

Xmas present from the girlfriend. She bought them from a collector, I think she mentioned he was located in California. 2008 gold box releases. They have been my phone/laptop wallpapers for the two years we have known each other and I've dragged her to various museums to see some of Piet's work. She got the message.

They are NEVER being worn, instead I'm making something along the lines of a display. Looking to pick up a collection of Piet's works (have found a pretty nice hardcover collection) and incorporate that into the mix.
