2022 vacation set
29

Family vacation with <1% time left for photos, some of which are shown below. Little time to catch the right light, so these are mostly focused on content and composition. I brought the Rokinon 8mm fisheye and and three mighty Fuji zooms, 10-24, 16-55, 50-140. The last lens didn't see much use so it was mostly left back at the hotel/apt. All others lenses were used a lot, including the fish eye. Bevisgear bag, peakdesign carbon travel tripod the coolest accessories to have.

Athens (Greece):

Corfu (Greece):

Paris (France):

Rome (Italy):

Amalfi Coast (Italy):

Shkodra (Albania):

Hope you enjoyed it!

Terrific shots!  I tend to use the Rokinon 8mm quite a bit, it's a wonderful little lens providing marvelous perspective.

Thank you! The fisheye is a must for some shots and provides a kind of distortion that is more preferable than rectilinear. Like the shot with the people swimming among large rocks.

Great shots!  I especially liked sunrise through the arch.  One day I hope to go to Europe just for the photography it offers.

Re: 2022 vacation set

Thanks for the post. I share similar shooting preference with you and really appreciate the content. I also have the 10-24 and "the brick." Have been considering getting the 8-16 to replace the 10-24 but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Seeing your pics using the Rokinon 8mm has me considering it as an option.

I debated this with myself a lot during vacation and my decision remains against it. The main reason to me to get that lens would be to replace the 10-24 and the fisheye. However: a) if I want to do long exposure that means carrying bulky filter attachments, b) the fisheye is more like 6mm so 8mm still not enough in certain cases, c) as I said above, the slight fisheye effect from the Rokinon may be more desirable than a rectilinear distortion and, most importantly, d) the extra range of the 10-24, especially when you are tight on time, is Super useful. I think you are better off adding the upcoming Fuji 8mm to your 10-24 and I will probably to the same.

Lovely selection. The shot down on the balcony with the table was very creative with nice colours.
