Shot from a recent washed out trip to the English Rain District
1/320 f7.1. A great versatile lens and good value to boot.
Nice shot Sporgon. How do you like the contrast on the 85 f/1.8?
BTW, no respite from the rains for you, it seems
Thanks J.R. Yes the weather here is dreadful now after a good summer. When the Romans first invaded Britain the commander Julius Caesar was recorded as asking; " what do we want this land of mist and rain for anyway " ?
The 85 f1.8 isn't quite as sharp or contrasty as the 135L when both are wide open, but from about f2.2 onwards it is as good as the 135L IMO. However stating that on CR is a bit like saying the Venus statue would be better with two arms. Can produce chronic purple fringing in extreme contrast situations but stopping down a little takes care of it.
A very good lens for the money.
