SB gorgeous capture. I've not asked but wanted to, are you using the SR app? if so do you mind coughing up details on number of shots.

those are single shots I'm sure, probably in the 1-2 second range, SR not really meant to do that sort of textured water.

Thanks! :-)

I don't use the smooth reflections app. Pretty much all of my shots are filtered, the old fashioned way. ;-)a

QUOTED IMAGE

what tripod is that? looks very cool.

if you havent used SR yet, you should try it. Not really meant for your beach shots, but urban cloud movement..... simply amazing. You can and should work in combination with filters, there's no getting around ND's IMO.

77mm filter trick on the 12-24:

I do use it myself and my filter situation is extremely easy and quick to setup/break down.

For land and cityscapes I like all the Loxias. Color, microntrast, gorgeous 10-point sunstars. The Loxia 35mm is the weakest (sharpness), but it’s plenty sharp stopped down and the color rendition is superb imo. It’s actually my favorite landscape lens. The best alternative is adapting the Voigtlander Ultron 35mm 1.7.

I got my L35 used on FM from a guy that posted a lot with the lens on the FM image thread.

I’d love to also own the Loxia 50mm and 85mm for landscapes, but the FE 55mm and Batis 85mm, which also excel at landscapes (not as well though) serve my AF needs in my street shooting.

If you’re mainly about city/landscapes, think seriously about all the Loxias: their optical excellence along with diminutive size makes them a pleasure to carry.

Thanks Charlie & David
Do you know if LR 6 will open A7rIII raw files.
Also can you remove the hood on the CV12

It's a Gitzo 5 Series "Traveler" Systematic. Huge, sturdy, and is only about an inch longer than my actual travel tripod when folded down. My Sirui is 31 inches long when collapsed, which is just a bit too long to carry on a backpack, especially after you add a head, so I picked up the Gitzo to carry around.


I've contemplated the smooth reflections app, but I don't do super long exposures all that often. Granted being near the coast again that seems to be changing.

The lens shade is not removable on the CV 12. :(

Fred and Guy say the 12-24 is sharper.

I chose CV 12mm because I wanted a similar small physical size of the lens and similar rendering (same 10 point sunstars) as the Loxias. Filters are not important to me at 12mm - if I want a LE, I wait till blue hour or just use one of my other lenses.

FE 50 1.8

OOF rendering is kinda harsh, but I'm not about to fault that for a $200 lens.

Aside form the bokeh, the optical quality is good, regardless of the price. Plus the size and weight is nice. A lot of fun to shoot with.

Bring on a thrifty 35 f2 Sony!

consider it a $10 15 stop ND with perfect optics that can get you 5 minutes of exposure. That's my typical use case for the app. It just happens to give you ISO 25 like performance in practice, the files are much better than single shot files.

The counter argument is to pay $120 for a proper 15 stop ND...... those are painful to work with, require calculations, work in bulb mode, have to complete the operation. With SR, you can complete early if light changes too much or you cannot wait.

thanks for the tripod recommendation, but too heavy I'm thinking. It does look very cool and seems to pack up very compact.

not a really good subject for a test but i can say it's really sharp. focus on the golden gate bridge. yes it's the 50F1.8 wide open

on another note. the built-in camera metering is really off. I followed a good mountain in the middle of the histogram on this one and it's perfectly expose but the needle of the in-camera meter is already on +2

What kind of metering are you using? The meter reading will vary based on what metering you have set up, not on how the histogram will look. I normally use spot and meter the subject.
