Milkman, with M240, I think it makes sense to take advantage of high class RF wide than R or Minolta. I can think of 21SEM, 24SE, 18SEM, 28cron, Zeiss biogon21, biogon25 are all top glass with comparable or lower price than R.
With M240, the only R lens I would recommend over M: 100APO, 80-200(flexibility and size), 280APOf4, 180APOf2.8. 105-280(flexibility and reach)
Jon, I am drawing into your first one.
Jack, indeed 80lux is a versatile lens that has two characters in one.
Greg, the two flower shots from 90cron are very impressive. Are they WO. I can't help thinking that How I can achieve this kind of bokeh at the same time with POP with 80lux at this range. might need shoot at f2? I am not sure actually…
Kokusai, Very familiar place you have very nice control on tone, shadow and geometry. Well done.
Manu, after seeing many fine samples from Greg, I think 90cron is great, especially considering more affordable price, but it seems overlap your 100APO range.
The sunrise at Huangshan shot is breathtaking. When I was little I always wondered whether those Chinese watercolor paintings of mountains are for real. Your picture proves they actually exist. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for your really nice comment. And you are right that the scenery matched Chinese traditional art form and culture. I am big fan of Chinese brush painting. Huangshan is the most beautiful mountain in China and maybe one of most beautiful mountains in the world. Many photographers spend month there to get the light they want, and some visit there multiple time to catch the season. I wasn’t lucky enough to have more interesting lighting other than maybe 10min sunrise 2nd day morning. And by noon time, I need go down. I’d much prefer spend whole week there.
But I highly recommend the place to FMers who visit China.
80-200 with A7 Huangshan, this was taken at noon time I was struggled with the hash lighting and haze but like the frame.
