Great Stookan on the North coast of Ireland, taken from Giant's Causeway. Although I have thrown focus out in the distance you can see make out Grandmother Rock on the original - looks like a bent over old woman climbing the hill.

Canon 5D + 40mm pancake

Feel like I'm in the "300" movie. Very nice Sporgon.

The 40mm pancake is a small lens. However, this little guy plays big role in Canon lineup. I'm thinking selling my a7r + FE 55mm and replace with 5D III + pancake.

Dylan...your signature line shows that you already have a 5d3 and 40mm?

Many thanks Dylan, I was shooting for the 300 movie effect !  :)

With regard to camera sizes I find that it is the size and imbalance of the lenses that can make a dslr heavy. I was out to day on the East coast with the 5DII and 24-105, walked for about five miles along the cliff tops. That combo really gets heavy after a few hours of carry, whereas I was in the same place two weeks earlier with the same body with the 40mm pancake on and a light 28mm prime in my pocket and it goes totally unnoticed. The 6D is even better. If I go even lighter with my daughter's 1100D I don't feel any difference because the other bodies are light enough to make no difference.

Canon 5D + 40mm pancake

That is very special.
Did you use some extra light in front on the rocks?

Thanks candyman, very pleased with your comment. I'll be giving my techniques away, but yes I carry a very light weight lasolite, five foot across but folds really small and hangs from my belt. Used the gold foil side.

@ Northstar; just for you. This is a crop from the unfinished pano; the picture I posted was a single frame shot ( but multiple exposure of course). The pano of this is being a real pain as there are so many bracketed frames, and the whole thing is blended by hand.

You can just make out Grandma climbing the hill. On this pano I have held focus in the distance but still not sure which one I am going to go with.

Yes, indeed. I have this combo 2-3yrs now. I meant, once I sold a7r and 55mm, the 5D III + 40mm pancake will become my compact system.

Badlands of Dinosaur Provincial Park in south-western Alberta. Unfortunately there's a bit of banding that I've only been successful in partially correcting.

And this was shot on the same day; 40D + Tokina 12-24 f/4.

Delft Railway station area, the Netherlands. Note that most of what can be seen in this picture no longer exists as they have almost completely demolished the station area due to construction of a new train tunnel.

That's rather nice. I do find that is scenes with low contrast the older cameras ( ie 20-40D 5D etc) do give a pleasing tonal quality.

Very nice picture. I like the composition and general tonal qualities.
