I spent last week in Vietnam for the school holidays. This was my first major trip with the Panasonic 12-35, which I bought last month, and which I paired with my venerable E-P3.

The 12-35 really impressed me - apart from its propensity to offer vast tracts of purple flare around high-contrast edges. I spent quite a bit of time fixing it in Camera Raw.

Here are some shots from my first 24 hours in Hanoi. Nothing too great, but conditions were appalling:

Try getting one of these....

...should get rid of the purple flare...

A good suggestion, and it might even work, but ...

I've already tried a Hoya Pro1 UV filter which cuts out a fair bit of UV, and it didn't seem to work any better than my B+W MRC UV Nano filter, which according to Lenstip is not so good at cutting out UV.

Since I've already got two expensive UVs at 58mm, I'm reluctant to buy a third.

Surprised the weather was so bad - a bit early for those storms I would have thought.

Actually, I think it's a bit late for those storms. The Vietnamese are just coming out of their winter. Hanoi was surprisingly chilly in the evenings.
