I may (or may not!) have spent some money I shouldn’t have on some camera equipment I didn’t need while moving house. Using big-camera lenses on the Q prompted me to get a big camera out again, and so I read some photography magazines and I perused the internet and I took a few pictures here and there and then I decided that what I really, really needed to take better pictures was a new lens.
Oops. It arrived just before the weekend, and it is a typically Limited lens. Tiny, ludicrously tight tolerances, and sharp as a tack. The only issue I’ve noticed is a tendency to colour fringing in high-contrast backlit scenes, but as a portrait-type lens it is perfect. Fortuitously, a friend of mine went away for the weekend and I was asked to look after the cats. I hereby have decided to contribute further to the internet repository of cat pictures (amongst other things). My insincere apologies.
I’ve really been getting back into photography of late, and I’m looking forward to using this mighty-fine piece of kit out and about (as well as being one step closer to my Long-Term Lens Plan)…watch this space.
