  • Nice shot! I was also looking forward to it, but realized today that the eclipse would only begin three degrees above the horizon = Below the treetops around here...
  • I agree with Eric; beautifully subtle, soft light. Nice work!
  • B&H has the 17mm lens for $249, so for $500 you could have a nice kit that would cover a lot of situations...
  • Well, the trip was fun.  I used the 20-50 (Outdoors during the day) and 30mm (Indoors and at night) lenses a lot, but the 58 only a couple times.  Even then, it was only because it was in my bag ...
  • I am not sure how I would feel about a power zoom, and I would want to be sure it is optically up to a similar standard as the 20-50. I actually like the lens a lot, but use it less than the 30mm... ...
  • Interesting idea. That lens is thin too, from what I can remember, so it would be a pocketable combo. I may look into trading the 20-50 for the power zoom... Thanks for the suggestion! Correctio ...
  • I am staring at a pile of gear, brain locked up on which lenses to take to Disney. Going to Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Downtown Disney. Last time I went, I had a Canon A70 and didn't have many ...
  • A really nice set of images from what looks like a fun trip! I too like the shot of the sun glasses, and also the ones of the sculptures. Thanks for sharing. I also go camera spotting while on ...
  • Replied in lens roadmap
    Fuji really jumped out of the gate with a host of fast primes, and the 56mm is one I'd really like to try sometime.  The fast 56-58mm is a gap in the (Increasingly well rounded) NX lineup that ...
  • I wonder if it's possible to do a splash/dust-proof lens without internal focus/zoom...?  This lens expands the envelope of fast NX glass into tele territory, and I can see this being a teriffic ...
  • Beautifully executed idea, Eric! Normally, those green mervury-vapor street lights would be pretty gross, but the purple/green contrast works great. I love how you do car portraits...
  • I agree, with the NX1 coming out, there is an opportunity to flesh out the higher spec end of the lineup. It sounds like a nice longer zoom is on the way, so a few more fast primes would be good: ...
  • Same here. I compared lens prices to other systems. I also found, while playing with an NX 100, an NEX5, a panasonic and an Olympus over several trips to the camera store, the controls and menus ...
  • A round of cookies for everybody! I'm buying. ;-) I have noticed, on other lenses with spherical aberration, that as the focus gets closer to the bokeh'd item, the ring around the edge gets ...
  • Another implication of spherical aberration is that "in focus" areas will exhibit a glow because the there is actually some "bokeh" formed when the focal "line" hits the flat sensor surface. I ...
  • http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/bokeh.htm Look at the "bad bokeh" example, a result of spherical aberration: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spherical_aberration In a lens with spherical aberration, ...
  • I am hip-deep in Minolta legacy lenses but looked into the Nikon 105mm 1:2.5 recently when researching a 100mm 1:2.5 Minolta lens. There are several versions, I think, but one is supposed to be ...
  • There are three types of bokeh: 1) Circles where the light level tapers off toward the edge, 2) circles that are even all the way across and 3) circles where the light level increases toward the ...
  • To echo Coldamus, this should not be a problem if you keep up the shutter speed. This is aided by the large aperture available on 100/105 and/or 85mm lenses. I hear the Nikon 105 is really sharp, ...
