Lots of great stuff. I love the five Porsches lined up on the wet Alpine parking lot.

I read that as almost the entire optical system moving.

Indeed, looks like everything but the rear element is in the moving inner barrel.  Thanks!

This helps me appreciate its accuracy and understand its lack of speed.  I'm lucky with my copy--pinpoint even at 1.2.

One thing about the EF 40mm; I've found it has horrendous field curvature at infinity and f/5.6. Anyone else found this or have I just dropped mine too many times ?


That's interesting as I've occasionally had stitching issues with the 40mm on scenes I thought wouldn't have any issues, usually I'm fairly wide open or at f8-11 though so must go back and check.

On most holidays now I travel with just the 24 and 40 pancakes
Actually on a previous trip to Rome I actually created a book of the results "Rome on a pancake" :)


I've been thinking of upgrading the 40 to one of the new 35s though. I've been concerned about field curvature and particularly parallax issues with a longer lens. Is that actually a practical issue when handholding?

Something a little different. For you petrol head travelers. Few from a couple of Eurotrips.


Very nice series, Tom. I especially like the 7th picture.

Well done, Tom.

It'd be a lot different if/when venturing out on my own, but managing the family/guiding the trip makes gear totally impossible.
One AWESOME thing was during the one guided tour we did.  It was an all day tour of Lake Como and was ridiculously outstanding.
My favorite part, though, was a fellow photographer with a super nice Fuji set-up.  We got to talking and he was strictly on a photography trip to Italy, Portugal and one other country. 
His family dynamics were identical to mine and he left everyone at home.  It was a revelation.

I bet there are many here on CR who would be aghast at the thought of heading out on a trip with just the 40mm, yet I have done so myself and there are very few missed opportunities, especially as if wanting wider you can stitch.

Travel / The 40mm "Italy" Shots

    Apologies for forgetting to post the result of all the agonizing over what to bring to Italy.  It ended up being a 6D/40mm and that's it.  It was really hot all the time so being ultra-minimal was KEY.  Will go back during the Spring and/or Fall, but would likely also do just the 6D/40mm combo and leave it at that. 
    Not perfect all the time, but AWESOME nonetheless.  Thanks again for all of the previous guidance.
    Without further ado -
