    Got new glass?

    I know several of us got some new glass over the holidays... so lets see some pics :P

    Got mine out and played with it a little today..
    It's a lens I've been wanting for a while now, a classic for outdoor walk around use.

    Canon L series 70-200mm f/4.0

    Very nice! They're incredibly sharp, and I love the smoothness of the bokeh on the last one. Looks like we can expect many more incredible plant/heli shots from you soon aswell. . .

    I'll get some shots up soon too.

    Sorry for the double post

    These pictures are edited, but if anyone wants to see the un-edited versions I can upload them.

    As You (Av) and Cryisstal already know, I impulsively spent all of my money on a Zeiss 100mm f/2 Makro Planar T* ZF.2 lens. I may be kind of broke now, but since I'm not living in my own house/apartment it doesn't actually matter. . . So basically I'm happy with my decision!

    I always love pictures of lenses because of the colours and stuff you can see from the coatings, so I decided to give it a go today. I chose my nicest looking lens, the helios! (Creds to Av for recommending it. )

    You can see some minor scratches and stuff from previous users here which may add or detract from the pic depending on how you look at it.

    And a really shallow DOF macro for fun. I did take another picture of this flower with a smaller aperture.

    Fuuuuuulllllllllll

    The only thing I noticed is that is sometimes has some trouble with colour fringes, but nothing noticeable unless you really zoom into the pic. usually happens with white things.

    Cheers

    Thank you Butch. Lol.

    One more:

    Full

    F-stop was at 2.2. I think I should have gone for 2.8 or higher though.

    @Av, looks like a good lens. Images look beautiful. What's the minimal focus distance?

    @Devon, I'm jelly... Those pics are stunning. I wanna see some plant stuff! What Ping is that? P. emarginata?



    I got a 70-300 NIKKOR a while back, but it was just an early Christmas gift (on sale!)







    Unfortunately, there is a severe drought of subjects, as most of the birds are either north or south for the winter. We live right in that awkward area where nothing likes to live...

    I also got the SB700 speedlight from Nikon, which I don't have any pics uploaded from at the moment, but it sure is fun to use!
