Kevin - love the first and last ones.

Ron - Nice portrait.

Georg - Love the perspective, so did the shift help a lot?

Let's hope Leighton doesn't start knocking on doors and telling the home owners the doors need straightening

Ron, perfect use of the 55 1.2 for that portrait!

Georg, excellent shot of the ship with the 28 PC using the shift mechanism! This lens is really going to suit your skills.

Leighton and Samy - thanks!
Leighton, yes and no - I could have shot the same scene with a superwide as a vertical to get exactly the same perspective - just with a lot more snow in the foreground (lower half of the vertical shot).
The 28PC is well built and fairly compact. I have to get used to the aperture-mechanism.
I hope to find enough spare time to use this lens (and the 85PC too) a bit more in the coming weeks.

I took shots with the 14-24 one time that someone asked me to, and realized that I was cropping off loads of pixels to get rid of the unnecessary foreground. That's what had made me think of a PC lens.

The aperture mechanism is funky, but just a matter of getting used to. And it took me a bit to realize how to do the rotate function, you can combine that with the shift.

BTW, Leighton, do I sense an interest in the 28PC? <hint>Any time I go browsing ebay etc. there seem to be a good number of these out there. </hint>

I've missed quite a bit. We are very sad here as my wife's great-grandfather passed last week after a 5 year battle with Parkinson's Disease. He was truly the rock in her family. Life goes on though.

Jorge, I'm really sorry to see you having to dump so many great lenses.

Leighton, the farm is looking lovely.

Elton, I like both color and B&W. Each works well in their own ways.

Ben - Nice work with the 35/2OC.

If you want even faster, put an i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz in a PC and overclock it to 5.0GHz and also add at least 16 gigs of RAM and put LR on a SSD. Now you're talking speed!


Is that what Ivy Bridge is capable of Leighton? I haven't overclocked in a couple of years. My last OC was pushing a Q6600 up to 3.94GHz on air while running dual GPU's. The machine also had 6 HDD's, and water cooling with dual radiators... I think it pulled around 850W at the wall... I ended up eventually dumping it for a lower power quad, SSD, single HDD, single low wattage GPU, and air cooling. I now hit full load at around 180W, but rarely pull more than 120.

Roy's 180/2.8 will be a nice lens. I bought my 35/1.4 from him. Never should have let it go.

I've been playing with the V1. It's a bit disappointing honestly, and it will probably go back to B&H. The video is nice, but I didn't buy it to be a video camera. The search for a competent, small digital mirrorless body continues.

Welcome to lots of new faces around here too!

BTW, here is a currently cheap 300/2.8 for any who are interested: Temptation

This looks like a great deal on a 35mm 1.4. Only 30 min left
