--= The Thunderbirds! =--

Can't beat the lens when ya got a wide subject to fit in frame but can't get further away and not have obstructions:


or when you're really really close...







p.s. not all that many taken w/the 12-24 but in the event you'd like to see my shots from the Memorial Day's Jones Beach Air Show's staging at Farmingdale Airport... click me: Memorial Day 2009 - Featuring the Thunderbirds

Taken near sunset in Haslet, TX at the Alliance Intermodal facility.

F/4.5, 1/180 sec, ISO 100:



Although rectilinear, you can see that it's an ultra-wide angle (slightly leaning posts to the right). Perhaps someday I'll correct that in Photoshop.

Regards,
Marc

I like the colors and contrast it produces, when not aiming in to the sun.
That 52 has a whopping 185' wingspan btw..

Cheers. Mike.

One more from NAS Patuxent River. AirExpo 09.
I was messing with the lens, wanting to see how much I could squeeze into the frame.

Cheers. Mike.

DA 12-25 @ 12mm

Here is a shot from Sunday when we drove to Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta,Canada, sister park to Montana's Glacier National Park in the USA, but not to Glacier National Park in British Columbia, Canada. Very confusing to us old folks, so we generally just say Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, a UNESCO site. ISO 100, 1/1600 @ f/4 (!). Depth of field is so huge at 12mm that the goof only shows in the original size.

The image was converted using DxO with DxO's auto distortion, colour, etc. for the K10 + 12-24. Note that the title is incorrect!

Some of my latest shots with the DA 12-24... I absolutely love this UWA lens (ok,not as wide as the sigma or tamron, but it's a PENTAX)!

I love ultrawides - they can make your backyard surreal! (favorite lens is easily my 10-17mm, which is amazing, but sometimes just TOO wide)

I was seriously considering the sigma 10-20 (which I have previously owned), but last night saw a henry's auction of a used (good description from them, warranty from the store) 12-24 DA on ebay for about $30 more than the sigma new, so I bit that bullet pretty fast!

I have another dilemma, and it concerns my 16-45. I ran exposure plot for fun last night, and it seems the 12-24 would cover a significant amount of my shooting - my shots take a dive after 20mm, and then there is another big bump up at the 45mm range (there is also a bump at 40mm, but that would be my pancake!). Which tells me I always have the wrong lens on my camera, haha.

I am deciding between the soon to come 50-200mm wr, and the 50-135mm.

My final dilemma is, do I keep the 16-45, which has a significant overlap with the 12-24, and use the money I currently have saved on the 50-200 wr, and also a gps photo tagger, or do I sell the 16-45 (which is a great lens!) and scrape together enough for the 50-135mm?

I haven't updated my sig, but recently sold the 55-300mm. I also recently came into a panasonic L1, and have paired it with olympus' 70-300mm, which has significantly more reach, and as great as the 55-300mm was, the olympus won out (AF was better, will be using outdoors w/monopod when necessary, IQ is very good w/raw)

Probably the wrong thread to ask, but oh well!

Finally getting around to processing shots taken last month. I actually like this shot quite a bit. Nothing spectacular about it but nice composition, decently exposed and pleasing scenery. Not going to set the world on fire but it's got a 'quiet beauty' about it.
