    Sometimes, I also bring the 120mm f4 A lens
    That is one way to save on a gym membership!

    So what is it about 120mm that suddenly makes your bag too heavy?

    When you said you fly, I got the image of you in a leotard with an S on the front. But I guess you meant by plane.

    Will, my guess is that the 120mm simply puts things over the edge weight wise, so to speak. It's like that last slice of pizza that you realize you shouldn't have eaten. Yet I have to hand it to Ed, his images speak for themselves and the weight of his bag is worth every penny (or is it pence)?

    Beautiful images, Ed! The last time I attempted to capture a low fog event from the Headlands I found myself arriving at Hawk Hill at some ungodly hour in fog so thick I could barely see the road. Apparently the fog was low but not low enough! However I am hopeful that another good low fog opportunity will present itself again soon.

    Quite stunning Ed!
    I am also impressed with your dedication in carrying all the gear on what I presume are buisness trips?

    Thank you all for your most flattering feedback - so glad you all like the shots. It truly was a magnificent morning. Even the early start was helped by jetlag!!!

    Yes, the shots you see taken on travel away from the UK are almost all business trips. You can call it dedication - I call it obsessive madness! But on mornings like this, it somehow seems worthwhile. It does require a lot of cheek to get it through as carry-on baggage. Don't know what I would do if challenged - I couldn't check it, as the bag is not padded much. I would be totally stuck.
    My osteopath gets lots of business out of me too, as a result. As I get older, it's daft to carry so much.
    Oh, and I do occasionally take clothes with me, yes. But no costumes, Shashin ;-)

    The 120mm doesn't always make it merely because it's close to the 150mm (which is lighter) and it is the 'straw that broke the camel's back' (not to mention mine). But there have been times when I haven't taken it and I wish I had... I also have several other lenses that I never take on these trips but which do sit nicely in my home kitbag. So that's my pretence that I am being compromising.

    The question about the 600mm - this is a lens I have never taken on a business trip with me. Its size and weight are a challenge. But the other thing is that it's only sharp when used with at least two points of support, so I would also need to bring another tripod or a monopod with me - and even I have to draw the line somewhere! That said, it would have been useful on this occasion. A few shots (including the greatest close-up you see here) were taken with the 6x7 400mm + 6x7 1.4x converter. In the end though, I am content to have left that one at home. (Who am I kidding? I want all of my equipment all of the time!).

    Alan - your shots have such a sense of place, a wonderful mood, a realistic-yet-stylised aesthetic... I can feel your love of a place I have visited a few times but only fleetingly. Congratulations!

    Feels like they are forming cohesion as a body of work. An exhibition in Weardale perhaps?

    Hi Ed, I am quite taken aback with your kind words!
    Interesting observation that you make and yes I really enjoy feeling connected to the places I find. I really don't think too much about where this is going, just enjoy the journey, but you may have planted a seed now, thanks.

    I went for a hike through one of "my places", the Lauterbrunnen Valley. As is typical for Switzerland, the weather changed from sunny, to thick clouds and then clearing skies. https://djessemay.com/new-images/117...n-evening.html

    I've not shot anything with a view of converting to black and white for ages so remedied that the other day. This scene seemed to work nicely.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Ed, Dave, Matt... thank you so much for the comments. We are spending most of our weeks (through January) now at the Rehabilitation Hospital, so I am just now getting back to you. This location was originally shot with the H5D last year and then again this year with both the 50c back and the film backs loaded with Velvia. So I will have more images to process when I can find time to do so.

    I am quite pleased with the way the S 006 renders landscapes and colors. I am not sure what to expect with the Velvia images but I will send the rolls to Dwayne's this week, and hopefully be able to share those results in a couple of weeks.

    My first photo with the widest lens available for the 44x33 medium format sensor size, the Venus Optics Laowa 17mm f/4 (~13.5mm in 35mm full frame terms). This was taken this morning at Yaki Point in Grand Canyon National Park...
    GFX 50S, 17mm, ISO 100, f/8, 4s

    Nice shot!

    How do you find that the lens performs all round, including into the corners? (Hard to judge from web presentation)

    Some pictures from the Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin. Designed to resemble an Irish harp...

    All taken with Pentax 645Z and 28-45mm f4.5 lens.

    The center is very good and there's a little falloff into the corners but it's better than I expected and better than the 12mm f/2.8 coupled with the Laowa Medium Format converter - that combo has essentially the same optical formula but by eliminating the mount between converter and lens, the corners are more consistant with each other (at least with my lenses). I have basically only used the lens on one shoot so far but I did do a quick and dirty centering test and did not find any decentering and, as I said, the corner resolution falloff was better than I expected on the ISO test chart. It is much better, for example, than the Nikon 16-35 f/4 at 16mm on a D850. Hope that helps

    E.J., thanks for your impressions. I've heard good things about the performance of this lens and wondered if it is adaptable (in my case) to other MF systems like the Pentax 645 MF cameras? As an aside, I was never personally a fan (and stated often here years ago on Getdpi) of the Nikon 16-35mm f4, primarily due to its excessive distortion and other anomalies I observed. Again appreciate your observations.

    I don't think that would be possible, at least not without some very complex optics as the flange distance on the 645 is dramatically longer than on the GFX. It's easy adapt from a long flange distance to a short one as the adapter just makes up the difference but going the other way is not at all easy.
