Thanks David. I rarely miss adding lens info if it isn't detected automatically but this one slipped by me. I must have been in too big a hurry to eat. :lol:

I've corrected my faux pas and it now shows I used my Sigma 35 f1.4 Art lens.

Thanks Gene.

The oven shot was at f/2.8...it would be interesting to see if your FE 35mm 2.8 would have rendered it any differently than the Sigma. Have you ever done a comparison study of the two lenses? Just curious.

I haven't compared them by shooting the same subject with all settings the same except once. That was when I shot all my lenses using the Sony f2.8 then retaking the shot after replacing the Sony lens with the Sigma on my camera and placing the Sony lens on the table where I left a gap for it. After blending the two images, all my lenses were in the shot, including the lens I took the picture(s) with. ;-)a

I'll set up a subject to shoot and do a comparison tomorrow. Were you interested in comparing bokah, rendering color or anything else specifically?

Sure, all that. I was really mostly curious than anything. I don’t have a practical reason for asking.

In my dreams I’d love to add the little FE 35mm to my kit just because 1. I love 35mm, 2. there is a usefulness (as you well know) of owning a tiny little lens - especially when it’s as good as the FE 35mm.

Nice.

That seems to be the trend lately. No burn, just a bit of a glow on the horizon. Unless of course you're trapped in traffic on the 5, watching the sky light up. :oops:

One from yeterday morning. I originally tried to hike down the beach to a feature I knew was there but that I hadn't photographed yet. I forgot just how much sand had been pushed up onto the shore. I stopped to catch shots of some waves crashing againsts a mound of sand and realized I was standing on the reef/rock area that I was looking for, it was just all under the sand. -?:cry:

This is perfect...whatever you were waiting for isn’t as good as this. :)

Gorgeous.

I love it Alfredo (admittedly when do I not love your work?!).

Every single time you post with the 16-35mm GM I contemplate getting one. I’d have to sell my Loxia 21 and 35, which would be a big loss, but the gain is an outstanding zoom that minimizes lens changes and offers so much focal length flexibility for landscapes & architecture and is still a fast lens. Albert Dros has now switched to the GM you say?

Blue hour architecture is just the best btw. :)

Thanks David! I would recommend keeping your Loxia 21 if possible. I know you love the Lox 35 as well so that would be a hard one to sell to help offset the cost. I really like that lens too. Agree with you on focal length flexibility. The zoom has been so beneficial to me in completing my work assignments. Thank you again for the awesome recommendation. Yep, Albert uses the 16-35GM a lot now. Check out his gear page:

I'm planning to sell my Batis 18 this month. I've hesitated for a while since I love that lens too but it's redundant to the GM zoom. Interestingly enough, Albert still uses his Batis 18 and 25. He also has a Drobo which is cool. I didn't see any Loxia on his list though.

I'm not familiar with that museum Alfredo or who Trail Driver Rangers were but here's the Ranger muster roll of my 2nd great grandfather, John S. Hodges.

From the Texas State Library Archives:

Hodges, John Seaborn (Lt.)--Texas Mounted Volunteers/Mounted Men (against incursion of hostile Indians in settlements of upper Blanco and Guadalupe Rivers)

That's very cool Gene. Here is some history on it:

"The museum was created for the 1936 Texas Centennial to showcase the work of the Texas Rangers, which held the distinction as the first law enforcement group in the nation with statewide jurisdiction. A more peaceful side of Texas is explored in the collection housed in the Pioneer Room, dedicated to the hardworking pioneers who settled the Lone Star State. Western art is displayed here as well. Have a look at the statues in front of the museum featuring traildrivers and a ranger; one of the statues was sculpted by Gutzon Borglum, creator of Mount Rushmore."

Drobos are cool for non-computer experts like me. They’ve been ideal for me.

Thanks for recommending me keep the Loxias...they are indeed special, so I will hold my 16-35mm temptations in check for a while longer.
