Thatnks again for the info. Wealth of onowledge.
I have access to the Grand Canyon this weekend - yes seriously (a friend is a resident of the national park who holds a pretty important position in education). He basically told me we will go wherever, there aren't rangers who would bother us. We can't however go down unfortunately. Bit his back door is the rim.
So I had the lens on overnight but rethought it...now I guess I'll have to buy it locally before I leave. Maybe he sameples I saw were particularly bad. I've see so me great results...Show more →
The world is about to change. Since you love the 5D, I would not recommend investing in any APS-c lens, including touit. The new Sony full frame emounts are only weeks away from introduction. You might not get one right away, but I bet you have one in the near future.
On those cameras 18 mm gives the same FOV as 12mm on the nex 6. Of course, we have no idea if the new sensors are going to work well with the small M and LTM Mount Wide angles. But we are going to know very soon.
Cv 12 and 15mm jump to mind.
The other question on the Touit, how does it do at infinity? The zeiss 24 mm is not good enough at infinity, but really excellent at shorter distances. So you have to watch out for that.
There are also the wider zooms for canon and nikon, which may be great on the new cameras. The cheaper A7 (aka nex ff) will be around 1600 for the body. It's weather sealed. That last thing is huge outdoors. I can't even believe my 5n still works!
But today, the SEL1018 is awful nice. It's light, and gives u flexibility. The touit will go indoors nicely, at 2.8. Both will loose value right after purchase. So, I'd advise u to hang on a month.
I can't wait to see how the zm18 does on the new machines.
@joevain. Ty, sir. Nothing special in LR for sharpening, and I export from raw to JPEG, then up to flickr. In that shot I had huge dynamic range. So I had to do major shadow recovery, and highlight reduction. Makes me really happy that you guys find it reasonably sharp :-)
