    A walk with the family

    All images take at Exploration Park, Southwest of Las Vegas, Nevada (you can see the Las Vegas strip in the background of a few from the session). Some shots don't include people, but what the heck.

    This is my first outing with the Canon 6D with 24-105L. I'm normally a Leica M Monochrom user and post frequently in the M Monochrom image thread, but am preparing for once-in-a-lifetime vacation to Germany and Austria in March 2014. As this trip is for my 20th anniversary, my wife is insistent that I not spend a lot of time messing with cameras, lenses and a bag full of gear, and also that our pictures be in color. My first thought was either a Leica M (240 type) or ME as I already have the glass, but this kit offers me a one lens solution that really will cover just about anything.

    That, and with my GAS it was an excuse to buy another toy and to gain the ability to do wider than 35mm and longer than 90mm, both of which the Leica system does, but that my poor eyesight doesn't do so well with an M. Its been 2 years since I've had a DSLR type camera (Sony A77), so it is not altogether foreign, and as I found out this morning on the mountain, there are definite advantages.

    All images below are RAW conversions in Lightroom 5, lens profile applied, but no other post. This lens REALLY needs the correction on full-frame, especially at the wide end where there is some very serious distortion when focused closely. Thankfully, the correction works well, and the lens appears to be quite sharp from corner-to-corner, even wide-open.

    And now for the shots without any people...

    That is the Las Vegas Strip in the distant background.

    Sun just above the frame. Now THAT is excellent flare control, way to go Canon!

    Again, sun just to the top left.
