I’ve been working on a Sony 16-35mm f4 review but got called in for some work, so I had to put a delay on that.
This photo was taken with that lens and all I can say is this – It’s been a phenomenal lens and is well equipped to handle 42 megapixels no problem. It’s sort of rekindled my desire to shoot around town and has been a lot of fun so far.
Sometimes we get caught up thinking we need to go somewhere special to shoot and completely forgetting about all the great areas around where we live that have become mundane. New gear tends to be a great cure for that. It suddenly turns you into a tourist in your own town.
All I need now is my lime green fanny pack, an I ♥ LA shirt and a thick German accent and I’m good to go. 🙂
And speaking of German, something else I got on the way, the Voigtlander 35mm f1.7 Ultron. It was just released last month with a fresh optical update. I’ve had my eye on this lens for a little while and saw Steve Huff using it with only great things to say, so I thought I would pick it up.
I actually bought it to use as more of a 50mm on my Fujifilm XT1, a range I desperately need on that camera. So we’ll see how that works out next week. Hopefully it fits the Leica M to Fujifilm Adapter.
