    COVID 19 Lock Down Photo trips

    Sadly, France is in lockdown again. So it seemed appropriate to revive this thread (if not, apologies in advance, but it did sound like a better idea then recreating a thread). So here goes, with a couple of pics. The first one -how obvious is that?- is called: lockdown. The second illustrates...

    COVID 19 Lock Down Photo trips

    In Europe, lockdown meant strict, tough lockdown. No motor "leasure" trips allowed. Only trips to buy essentials, with limited timing to do so. So no trips to lovely spots so well captured in your delightful images and video. But no criticism implied whatsoever that you were allowed to do so. So...

    Contax G Lenses

    Still, G 28, 45 and 90 represent totally oustanding value for money on the NEX series. True world-class glass for a couple of hundred bucks each. Well worth the fiddly focusing on the adapter IMHO

When I queried him, he...

    Carsten, what really works so well for me is how my eyes go to a fro from the flowers to their refelction and back. It gives a sort of dreamy, fantasy dimension to the picture. Like something out of a Tim Burton movie. Everything looks normal and in place, but,somehow, you know that there is...

    Carsten, that last shot is absolutely jaw-dropping, breathtaking, wall-hanging stuff! Heartiest congratulations!

    Second that. The ZM 25 I tried was clearly in the same class as ZE glass, and among the better ones AFAIAC. The same applies to the ZM 50 f:2.0 which I own. Very good glass indeed, with this planar rendering that I am fond of. The 35 f:2.8 is also very good, though maybe a shade less so, but...

    Carsten, when I met Samuli, he was shooting his 80-200, but considered getting a 70-200 (IIRC), which he considered to be "probably better".
