We've been very busy around home for the last few weeks. 'Just dawned on me that I hadn't posed some images I took with a then new Meike 35mm f1.7 Fuji mount lens. Another $79. exceptional lens - MeikeMK-35mm f/1.7 Lens for FUJIFILM X.
Very impressed so far. Very sharp, nice image rendering...
I've been searching for a cheap replacement for my Voigtlander 40mm 1.4 Nokton MC. While it was very sharp in the center, the field curvature softness was really starting to bug me due to the thick sensor stack of the Sony bodies. I've been looking at other alternatives such as the Voigtlander...
The A7s seems to have recently dropped in used prices, so I was able to get one from Adorama.com for a pretty good deal. I have been wanting to try one for some time, but wasn't sure it could compete with may A7ii.
What I have found so far is that I prefer the size of the A7s as well as the...
I had a blast today checking out my latest M mount lens, the 7Artisans 35mm f/2.
I must say I'm impressed; while it's of course no equal to more expensive lenses, it's a pretty good lens - and I enjoy the results. I also shot with two of my other 35mm M mount lenses, the Voigtländer 35mm f/1.4...

Retired the XG1 to the shelf and current shooters are a Nikon FE2 & F3/T along with a Yashica Electro 365 GSN rangefinder.

On vacation in PR this week. Brought along my X-T10 + 35mm F/1.4 combo. Added a Dicapac WP-S3 to my bag for some extra fun, shooting in water.
Here's a selection of what I've taken so far. More to come as the vacation progresses.
Or that's the idea anyway.
I shot 6 overlapping (portrait orientation) frames on 35mm Tri-X and merged in photoshop. This is taking hybrid film/digital process to the extreme. I think it looks pretty good for a first attempt.

It was really challenging taking photos of the native possums in very low light. It was hard to nail critical focus as they're very fast, devilishly agile, and they dont react or move in a predictable way the little bas...cute critters.
I literally took almost a hundred shots...
Time and Tide
I managed to take some shots underneath the jetty today as it was low tide, I couldnt maneuvre properly though as there were still pools of water everywhere, in the end I committed to this shot.
I was planning to have a stroll this evening to take some photos but the weather was really against me (then again I live in Melbourne...) So I had to go with my safety shot, the Rosemary shrub on my front lawn.
