The gap between the 12 and 25 is quite significant. I have the 7-14 and PL 25 ... but I felt that I was sorely missing a 17 on many occasions, and I am now seriously wondering if I should get the 17/1.8 or 12-35/2.8 for my w/a needs. I am leaning towards the 17 ... but I am hoping that a better fast 17mm lens will come along this year.

If you buy used, you should be able to get all three lenses for about $1200 or so. Plus $800 for a used body.

Some samples to show the shallow DOF/OOF quality from the 45/1.8 and 75/1.8 lenses ... and one from the 45/1.4 @f2 that I am reposting. I am pretty happy with the FF-like performance from these lenses.

Panasonic 14mm f/2.5: $350

There is no way I will ever pay $350 for this lens. You can buy a GF3+14mm 2.5 kit for just under $300:

http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-DMC-GF3CT-Digital-Camera-Pancake/dp/B0054YV934

You should be able to find it for under $200 new on ebay or $150-175 used.

Nice. Most people would not know who I.K Brunel is today. Or who Telford or Stephenson where.

BTW that I think is officially called the Royal Albert Bridge.

Gotak
Correct it is the 'Royal Albert Bridge' yet locally known as the Border crossing . I aught probable to have been more precise as the road bridge built much later is known and named as the Tamar bridge. Just being lazy.

Duke a great image , love the light and sense of environment. The colour treatment works well.


I am fairly lazy in Photoshop and know I aught to try different processes. I have always wondered what smart layers were for and smart filters were and have been playing round with them. It is often hard to tell how it would have turned out using my normal, possibly simpler methods. I know now the basics of Smart filters, which i know will help to play with images, so a worthwhile hour or so.

Anyway a few pics from today.

Love the shot of the pink sailboat, but if you don't mind my saying so, I think the yellow buoy is a distraction. The sailboat and the lighthouse would make a very nice landscape/panoramic image IMHO.

I know what you mean Bobby. In fact the yellow buoy would work better if it was on the left, with the right side always taking a dominant roll.
Truth be known I was playing a lot with this image and the Raw was so over exposed I am surprised I got anything at all. Using the EF70-200 f4, @ f4 1/4000 with max compensation dialed in , which aught to have been more like 1/6000.

In the end I did get more into trying different processes in Cs6 with the result of not taking to much care about the overall image.

Not too sure if I like the image at all myself, probably not ,but I try to learn and thanks for the feedback.

I don't think so ... as the yellow buoy is competing for attention and draws your eye away from the pink sailboat which is the main focus of interest. The pink sail boat really pops against a monochromatic background ... so you don't want any other object or color to compete and take away the viewer's attention on the pink sail boat. Less is more.
