14mm - I guess I'm keeping it after all...
Feb 15, 2013

I'd noted in another post that I was returning the 14mm, not because of any real or perceived lack of quality, but because I simply didn't anticipate getting enough use out of the focal length to justify the cost. Well, I spent a day shooting with just that lens yesterday and now I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep it. It does fine for street shooting and for scenery/architecture. And one area where it may really earn its keep is for low-light street shooting. With this lenses very deep DOF, its very possible to zone focus at f4 and even f2.8 with a bit of care, and with the X-Trans' awesome high ISO capability, this really opens up a lot of possibilities. So, anyway, here are a bunch of shots, starting with some urban scenery, followed by some good light street, followed by some low light street...

Peeking, but not a duck...

I rarely take homeless shots, but this guy was pretty compelling to me...
