It's the Sandman. But no worries, he will dig you out.

Yup. The shot was taken in a ghost town in the Sperrgebiet, which is a diamond mining area in the Namib Desert. This is what it looks like:

Oops. I missed that question. That would be a D2/35 on a 5D2. The overview also includes a D2.8/21 YC and a P1.4/50 YC.

Toothwalker - Fantastic. Creepy, sad, and beautiful.

Carsten - I like that tree shot amd PP. A bit crunchier than your PP I am used to, but I like it.

RX100 - played with pp a bit futher than usual. It must be the season.

Thanks, akul. Sad and beautiful it is. Snakes and scorpions make it a creepy place, but to my knowledge they are not in the images.

Although the desert is reclaiming its territory, I am under the impression that they remove the sand from the buildings once every while. They earn quite a bit of money with the permits, which wouldn't sell well if people would not be able to enter the buildings.

Here are some shots of murals from the mission district in San Francisco that I took last winter. If you are in the bay area, I highly recommend the Los Ojos tour (I think I am remembering the name right) of the mission murals. These were all taken with the ZE 21 f/2.8.

Nice test shot, Carsten! Isn't the FE 35 an F2.8 lens? It has very nice bokeh, and good seperation!

Yes, f/2.8. I find it has a bit of the same character as the RX1 35/2, although it isn't quite as good, and of course slower.

Carsten, the b&w is great. Very nice tonality in the b&w conversion. Is it a single image or some kind of blend?
