Thank you for going, shooting and posting.
They call it "The Moving Wall", an aptly descriptive name.

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 :)
Very nice! I Like the framing and composition. Also the lighting. Well done

+1, Good choice to add the letterboxing, it looks like a screenshot from a movie.

Black-headed gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus) by alabang, on Flickr

The black-headed gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus) is a small gull which breeds in much of Europe and Asia, and also in coastal eastern Canada. Most of the population is migratory, wintering further south, but some birds in the milder westernmost areas of Europe are resident. Some birds will also spend the winter in northeastern North America, where it was formerly known as the common black-headed gull. As is the case with many gulls, it had previously been placed in the genus Larus.

Thank you candyman and Dustin.

I often use the pancake as my "lenscap" whenever I go birding to document a trip with fellow birders in tow.

I really appreciated the portability of the lens while I was traveling in Japan. It beats carrying any EF lens much less any L lens.

My sole complaint is that it was not offered with a f/2.0 aperture like Voigtlander.

This lens swore me off the 35/1.4 L II.

Wonder if it'll get out resolved by the 7D Mark II or 5DS R. ;D

Throw it in a pocket and pull it out if you need something wider.

+++1 Usually gets slipped in the bag or brought along when I travel light. Sharp and reliable and with me. A handy focal length either on my 6D or my old 500D as shown here.
