Snow day here with D800E and Nikon 24-70 F2.8G and Sigma 35mm F1.4 ART
Mar 11, 2013

I took a shot of this scene earlier this year with an RX-1 and so today, when it snowed again, I went to the same spot with D800E and Nikon 24-70 shot at 35mm f5.6 so as to try to get the same-ish shot at higher resolution.

As soon as I returned home a courier unexpectedly arrived from Sigma with what I thought was a repaired 35mm F1.4 ART but was in fact a replacement, my third copy that requires a +20 AFFT, rather irritating. So off I went with the new lens to the same spot...

Clearly this is not intended as a 'compare these for IQ' exercise, just an image post that, if anything, reiterates that the same scene shot several different times will always look best when shot in the best light, rather than with the best camera/lens, as we already know.... here's the original RX-1 version. Just... nicer..
