    Singingsnapper got a reaction from denartwork in Afternoon and Evening in Great Langdale, UK   
    Spent the afternoon in the Langdale Valley in the Lake District.  Some fine cloud came over the type that the sun can get through the worst kind for photography as everything gets blown out, so I had a couple of pints of good ale in the Britannia Inn in Eltewater village sat outside until the cloud cleared away...then returned after a wander and had dinner before heading to Elterwater itself (the 'lake' - though strictly it's a 'water' - The English Lake District has only One lake - bassenthwaite.  The remainder are tarns, meres, or waters)

    Singingsnapper got a reaction from ShotGal in A7RII and Minolta 85 f/1.4 G D   
    My Minolta 85 f/1.4 and Sony 50 f/1.4 arrived this morning.  Haven't had an opportunity to test the 50 yet, but it does work.  
     
    Took the dog up the garden, he doesn't mind being my guinea pig as he gets a run around in exchange for it...
     
    First two are wide open at 1.4.

    One thing I will say is that you have to be careful with the saturation, as they go all Velvia 50 very quickly and the contrast is very good...

    Picked up my copy of the FE24 - 70 2.8 GM
     
    First impressions are that it is nowhere near as heavy as I thought it would be from all the comments I saw.  Seems to be a sharp lens.  Used it quickly to take a few snaps of my sister in law's dog...

    Singingsnapper got a reaction from a_pavlin in Evening on the beach with 24 -70 GM   
    Took the new 24 - 70 GM out for an outing on the local beach.  Some have described it as big and heavy.  Big it is, but I didn't find it heavy at all. Main issue for me is focus by wire when the light fades.  I'd like to be able to prefocus when there is enough contrast and then lock that focus using the MF switch on the lens, but that doesn't appear to work.  Taking the focus all the way to  infinity at the mountain end of the scale in the viewfinder makes everything out of focus...
