Picture taken with Q published! :-)
10 months ago

So it took the Q and the 03 fisheye lens to get a picture of mine published in a newspaper!

The picture that made it was a crop from this one:

There is a thread about it with more info here: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3534804

The newspaper is only a local one, but I understand it has a circulation of about 200.000 and 0.6 million readers. And if those look closely at the caption, they can find my gallery - the people at the paper were so kind to include its URL. That's some nice advertising, isn't it?

The picture was used to illustrate an article about the recently finished open air season for film screenings. The headline loosely translates to "It was a perfect summer for the cinema".

Needless to say that I took the picture of me with the paper also with the Q+03 ...

Thanks, Geoff!

The 03 is nice - not too sharp, but capable enough. And with an very interesting way to "see" things.
