No it isn’t. The line you are referring to is a cloud shadow, or something on the water. Unless the island has taken off, and is floating above the horizon of course.... ;-)a

Long exposures is something I have done very little of, so much to learn, which keeps things fun. I have 10 days on the Gold Coast with the family starting tomorrow, and then a week at a conference in Orlando, so hopefully some good photography opportunities along the way.

Oh no I went to progear ....... low and behold secondhand Sigma 150-600 sports lens $1516.

I only went in for some new tripod legs :)

No

I didnt buy anything but was close to getting that lens.

Went to photoshack and got this instead http://www.photoshack.​co.nz …luminium-Tripod-4-section (external link)
Hope my L-plate from progear will fit.
My old tripod and head got from trademe dealer who I just found out passed away from cancer
Was a big verson so parts didnt fit anything new

No. The IS on the G85 is very good, but 8 seconds would require miracle working. I used a 10 stop ND filter and tripod for both of those. It was still pretty dark when I took the first one.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to buy a G9 when I am home next Saturday, so I can take it to Orlando on Sunday. I haven’t decided who from, or if I’m going to trade my G85 in yet though, I still really like it. Here’s a couple from the Carrara markets today....

You should get it.... you have been talking about it long enough, and didn’t Mrs Weka give you permission a few weeks back?

agreed. I got myself an 85mm f/1.2 the other week, specifically for taking shots of karate tournaments in very dim school halls, but seems very nice for other work too. Big lump of glass I must say. At some stage would be good to compare it with a new 85mm f/1.4 IS


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II converted for IR, and now an M5

I always lusted after the 85 f1.2 when I had my 5D, but I never got to buying one. Such an impressive lens in every way, i’m Sure you will enjoy it.

I can’t imagine carrying such a big, heavy lump of a thing these days. Each to their own.

A couple from this morning....

Some of the reviews I have read seem to suggest just that, miracle working! :)

Great pics.

I have always avoided comparing what I have just bought to what has just come out. Some times the results seem to suggest a self kicking is in order when in fact, your decision to buy was based on various validities.
