Tried to go a day with just the 16mm Prime...
Sep 17, 2010

Been shooting so much lately with 3rd party lenses including Sigma 30mm F1.4, VC Nokton 40mm 1.4 and Leica Cron 50/2 (I like fast primes) I forgot what it was like to use the 16mm pancake.

Today when I went to visit the in-laws in Yotsukaidou, I decided to bring just the pancake, took around 40 shots around the neighborhood and station, sunny day so used auto HDR. Night shots were just 20 second exposures at f16.

Wide angle is nice... could be sharper but then again, maybe that's just my poor photo taking. It's nice to auto focus again though. (^ ^) As always with only a single wide angle lens, body positioning is everything for composition and still learning that...

PP and Lens correction done in LR3.

I have a 21mm Zeiss Biogon ZM coming... I wonder if it will replace the 16mm...
