I really like the rays of light across the sands.

it's a hobby, no justification needed for anything. But I'm single so I can say that.

Nice evening at out Bethells recently. Do you think the flare spoils it?

NO, the flare sort of softens the image and adds a sort of romantic feel, sometimes you see this in real life. Its a nice pic


Panasonic Lumix G9 and lenses from 7mm wide to 300mm long.

Very nice Tony. Looks like a 4:3 ratio crop - kinda like medium format ;)

Thanks Chris, I don't mind the flare either, but it becomes much more noticable when zoomed in. I don't think it will stand up to printing at a large size.

I don't need any more pixels than I have at present.

It's not as if I'm wearing my camera out at the moment......

This lens interests me more than the body, not that I'll be getting it either but be useful to real-estate guys?? astro?? landscapers?? Reasonably expensive.

yea the 6D is good for me. I don't see this camera as an upgrade.

that lens would be interesting to play with. it's dam big tho. I don't use my 17-40 that often so buying a 11-24 is a long way off. esp at that price

Totally agree, nice to have something wider than the 16-35, esp. for this shot from the other day, couldn't get back far enough in the shed.

Yep, 16-35Mk2.

The truck has been fully restored, concourse condition!!!

Not bad considering it has done an estimated 10 million miles.....

the problem with wide is that it's distortion at that wide.

example of the 5Dr here
http://web.canon.jp/im​aging/eosd/samples/eos​5dsr/ (external link)

check out the leaning towers of the city scape.

that's a few man hours restoring something that big and a few $$$$

Wide angle distortion is certainly an issue. I'm going to have a decent go at re-shooting it, this was taken at a family gathering after a couple of beers.

I'll probably use my TS24 and I'll shift some stuff around in the shed to give me a bit more room. I'll also probably do it at night because the skylites are a bit of a problem.

It is eventually going to go into their showroom (if they ever get around to finishing it). It's been a project on the go, when time allowed, for a couple of years.

17mm is enough. It will hit same issue as Nikons 14-24 ........ filters.
