Thanks Worldinlens & carstenw.

More R images taken from Glen Affric and Glen Cannich, in the Scottish Highlands. From my limited experience to date, the R primes have the edge over the zooms even stopped down, but for my hiking needs, the 28-90 & 80-200 zooms are the lenses in the rucksack.

Hmm, the first and last really do it for me. Beautiful stuff, Jon.

Less exciting, but I continue to work through my lenses with the a99. Today it was the 250/4 vII, all at f/5.6.

The 250/4 with a Minolta APO 1.4x, lens wide open...

Why is it everywhere you go these days, there's always a couple of Canadians roughhousing and making spectacles of themselves?

Leica R zooms and particulary those two have edge over most regular primes from Canon. Very nice photos, they just seem tiny bit low on contrast. I guess you tried to maintain natural look and dont push it to be "general pleasing for everyone"?

Jon, I enjoy your set very much. They all well processed with good reality and mood.
I am looking forward to use 80-200 on my camera someday. I have the lens but no body to put on.

some 35lux R shots from Disney weekend, very few of non-family shots from that trip.

Alberto, R35/2 E48 have a extreme sharpness on WO and nice bokeh. I think return to this lens..

Beautiful shots Jon - You are making me very homesick for Scotland. Before migrating to Aus > 20 years ago, the annual holiday was always driving/hiking in the Highlands and islands

This humble one is a much smaller world, as autumn deepens here in the Antipodes.

Playing around with my 6D and 50 cron combo. Portraits are coming out great. I especially enjoy the closeness you can get with the 50 while preserving the shallow DOF and soft look. If my picture isn't good enough, I'm not close enough

Ah, I wouldn't know about the performance of Canon regular primes, the 28-90 and 80-200 are fine lenses, but optically have some deficiencies, I'll post some images in this thread to illustrate this point at a later date. To be honest, I'm happy with the natural look and keep post processing to a minimum in Apple Aperture for web output, ref attached screen shot. Thanks Mescalamba, for your kind comment and to everyone else too, they are much appreciated.

Thanks, the more I use this lens the more I fall in love with the colors it can produce. This and the Nikon AI-S 55mm f2.8 are turning out to be my favorite short macro lenses.

Here is a series of images taken with my tripod mounted Fujifilm X-E1 camera. The first image was taken with my 24mm f2.8 Elmarit and the other images were taken with my Leica 100mm f2.8 Apo Macro Elmarit lens. All images processed in LR4.4 and lens set ti f11 to f16.
