Classic Cars + IRIX 11mm f/4
7

I had a chance to use my IRIX 11mm f/4 lens at a classic car show yesterday, which took place in Viglas castle, Slovakia. Although I mainly shoot telephoto, the more I use it, the more the UWA lens is growing on me. Good composition is a challenge, but since the lens is rectilinear, it makes it slightly easier to work with straight lines.

The lens is very sharp even at f/4 when properly focused, but since it's manual focus, a lot depends on me to get it right. It gets easier at f/8, though I still have to be careful to re-focus when I'm up-close to my subject. I AF-fine-tuned the lens before-hand to make sure that the viewfinder AF confirmation dot was accurate.

Got some detail shots as well, using the Nikon 50mm f/1.4G
