Great shots, Downfall; I love the portrait the most. It conveys a sense of meaning. Great work.
Thank you! This was a birthday party photo that became a kind of akward family photo, but I like it somehow canīt explain why

Very nice captured!

My FA 77 arrived yesterday
Wow awsome photos jaieger! And congrats to the lens also. This was my intention to use it for more street photo when I bought it but I have not been to town that much now, but I must say it works great for most purposes

#s 2 and 12 are great. What are you doing taking better photos on day 1 with your 77 than I am several months in?
Thanks chris! LOL, i don't think mine are quite up to par with yours yet, I really liked those desert shots you took with them a while earlier.

Congrats! Seems you have no problems getting the best out of this lens! Exellent!
Thanks swede! After just using the 43 and 15 almost exclusively for a while, and neglecting the 100 I had before, I'd thought it'd be weird framing so tight, but it just fell into place. Sometimes I found myself too close to my subject, but otherwise...it felt pretty natural, which is awesome

Safe to say, that lens is a keeper Wonderful photos!
Agreed, twitch. Thank you! (:

I miss Canada Day! One year I was in a crowd of one million people in Ottawa. Quite insane. And every single person was having a good time.
Wow, I don't think Vancouver's parade hit quite those numbers. Maybe 1/10 of that? Though I wouldn't know. That sounds pretty awesome though (:

Thankyou downfall! Yeah that's true, I was worried it'd be too narrow a FOV but even on crop sensor, it works pretty well. Maybe not an all-purpose lens, but still pretty useful in all situations. Really like your shots as well - my favorites are the man drinking a coffee (I assume) and the road (:

I understand exactly what you mean. I know what you mean there. I have been using my DA40 very frequently and that has usually been my longest FL, but the few times when I used my 70-210 zoom I found that I used it almost exclusively at around 70mm so maybe it is a natural FL for me after all

Hehe yeah that was something special that bus :P. Thanks!

As always this page leaves me in awe of talent. But my favourite would have to be the tiny, chubby hand patting the sandcastle. Love it.
