Two-spot red snapper (Lutjanus bohar) by alabang, on Flickr

This Two-spot red snapper, Lutjanus bohar (local name "Maya-maya") is a regular catch at the Tacloban Fish Shed. I was told that this snapper is estimated to be about 5kg and that in bulk price it sells for $2.27/lbs.

If I had a proper kitchen to work in I would've bought this fish outright and make lunch!

The 40 has been back in action again. Decided I don't like the lack of distance scale and the fact the hood ( large in my case) screws onto the moving barrel, but at the price who can complain ?

I have started to explore a bit with street photography this summer. Like the shorty forty a lot for that and because of its size its no effort to carry your camera along. On some occasions it's slightly narrow for street, so will be looking at a 35mm soon (likely the f2 IS).


5D3 with shorty forty @f/2.8, ISO800, 1/5000, natural light, desaturated and vignette added in post. My wife was the model here :)

5D3, 16-35LII, 24-70 2.8LII, 24-105L, 85LII, 70-200 2.8LII, 100L, 135L, 100-400L, 50 1.4, 40 2.8, Sigma 180 3.5 EX, 1.4x TC III, 600EX, 550EX
