I'm off to France tomorrow and considering what to take. Has anyone ever stuck a TC201 to the 50mm 1.2 as a travel replacement for taking the 105 as the lens to fill a gap between the 50mm and 180mm? Space in hand luggage an issue.

Thanks for any ideas.

Kind regards,
Mark.

Thanks. I was toying with going to Belle Ile so I think unless the weather is really bad I will do that. I have even managed to shed enough weight to take the tripod (I know Curtis, crazy talk). Hopefully some great pics will be taken, at least I know I won't be able to blame the scenery.

Mark, enjoy your trip and look forward to seeing more images from the Lieutenant's land! Very nice images in this set, the first of the flower and the last one of your son are the best!

More bokeh/highlights tests, this is a vintage 13.5cm f3.5 Q from ~1960 vs. the "modern" 135mm f2 AI from ~1981, this time tested at f/5.6. No PP at all (white balance is "As Shot") other than conversion to jpg.

Although your color shots are pretty cool, I like the rust shot in particular.

There have been too many fantastic images posted since my last check-in, but John, that's a great pano, and Ronny, your macro work is very inspired. Pictures such as those are what make this thread - and this community - great!

The older lens seems to have a much smoother rounded bokeh. Nice comparison.
