It does, but what's to say the wind won't blow the bag and introduce more shake/vibration?


It is a much lower frequency vibration, which you can quell by letting your leg bump against it where it wants to blow to. With a light but rigid tripod this can work well. You can also gently push down on the top platform of the tripod if you are not making very long exposures.

Interesting, when you have that much space to work with, and perspective distortion isn't noticeable, then the 21 Distagon actually renders similar to the 35/1.4 Distagon, at least in that last shot. Very nice!

Jako, great colors and composition.

Nibutto, lovely conversions. Ironically, my favorite shot of your set is the one predominantly featuring the chairs (image 5). The texture in them is amazing with the conversion. They upstage the seemingly more grand buildings.

Taz_k, last two are spectacular.

Great shot, Rob. The water looks like it is made of glass.

John, blues and golds incredible in that last one.

I love the 50MP at any distance.

Really like both Ronny! The second is my favorite of the two. You're really making that 21mm sing. Beautiful.

Good to see many fine 50MP images - my favourite ZE/F.

'Does the Feisol have a hook underneath where you could hang something?'

I use a loop of 6mm shock cord (or several of them cut and tied to different lengths) for different levels of tripod height; loop it over the hook, put a boot/shoe in the loop and stretch it by stepping down on it for huge downforce. Cheap, light, small, clean, easy to carry/use, ever ready - unlike a bag of anything, swinging in the wind capriciously, hither thither and yon A bag does not provide anywhere near the downforce as a cord, unless you get like, 50 kgs of rocks maybe, rather impractical. How do you move the tripod with a bag of stuff in it when you need to? With great difficulty I imagine...

cord like this:
http://www.kellysbasecamp.com.au/p/5708428/msr---shock-cord-replacement-kit.html
but any hardware or camping store will have.

result: rock steady and secure tripod, the legs of which flex slightly against the shock load. We experience big winds in Aust, and a lot of the best light conditions occurs in big winds. In a real big wind, like might blow you over, push down hard on the base of the head as well as using a cord, while tripping the cable release. Happy foul weather shooting!

Jochen, I really like the simplicity and the (low contrast?) BW processing.
