New year's day walk with K-1 and D-FA 24-70 at Dunham Massey, England. Sometimes, I am really happy with the 24-70, other times.... I don't get it quite right somehow.

A couple of re-processes from a few weeks ago in Scotland.

Both are pixel shifted images with the DFA 24-70mm.

Two questions: do you have the motion-correction feature of the pixel shift thing turned on? You noted the use of pixel shifting in another post containing a water surface as well, but the water doesn't seem blurred (as it was when I tried it). And: where'd all those buildings come from? It must have been a long while since I've been in the Bedford area.

I take them in RAW and then develop them in Raw Therapee. It has a motion control option that is very effective. You can also a median option which tends to blur moving things in RT. Anyway, I think any place it detects motion, the program masks in the image of whichever of the four images you choose.

As far as Smith Mountain Lake goes, it is pretty built up along it now. I moved to the area a couple of years ago, but I think a lot of building has gone on out there over the last several years.

Is that DNG raw or PEF raw, or does it matter? So are using the in-camera pixel-shift thing, or is it all in software? sounds like a bracketed photo - multilayered thing. Thanks for that reference to Raw Therapee, btw, I've downloaded a copy to play with.

It shouldn’t matter if you shoot DNG or PEF and you don’t need the cameras processing either. Just open the file in RT and go to the checkerboard icon at the top. Select pixel shift from the drop down menu and select auto under motion correction. Hit control S to save the file and choose 16 bit tiff. At that point I usually take the file over to Lightroom and do final tweaks on it there.

My gosh, this is beautiful! I'm debating on purchasing this lens.
Thanks...
I ordered that lens because the DFA 70-200mm was back-ordered so many times afterit was announced, so I used my deposit money on the DFA 24-70mm, and this lens became my favorite all around FF zoom lens. I never regret my choice.
And so sharp too!

I actually got the chance to rent this lens and I agree, it it very sharp and makes beautiful images. I absolutely loved the time I had with it and did not want to return. I still want to try one of the three amigos - either 77 or 31 because I am blown away by the photos I've seen taken with them.
