There are a lot of 32-64 for sale in the used market. But you should pixel peep 100Mpixels at 100% on 4K display because that equivalent to a 2 meters (~80") wide print.


Waiting to see what the 20-35 will be like in terms of size, optically and price. I'm concerned that the price might be over 3000, because the 23 is already at 2700.
I have that worry too, the Pentax 28-45 is like that.

OK, I admit it - this shot is a total cliché. But I just wanted to do it!

You will never have full sharpness with wide to normal focal length zooms, with any brand unless the lens is highly oversized, heavy and expensive. That's because the angle of light path varies a lot from wide to normal, such that sharpness is compromised. If you want sharpness for wide to normal focal length, use prime lenses up to about 35mm FF equivalent. For long FL, 50mm FF equ. and up, zoom can deliver very good sharpness across the frame, especially from 100mm equ. FL and above. If I was full time professional photographer wanting to max out of image resolution with any camera format, I'd use only prime lenses up to 100mm FF equivalent.

I didn't know it's a cliché. For me it is a great picture. And if many have photographed that same subject many times, much less have photographed it at night with a 100Mpixels camera.
You'll probably find a million smartphone shots only good to share online, but if you would print that same picture on 40" metallic or fujiflex or fuji maxima photo paper and frame it, it'd be jaw dropping and many people would stop to contemplate for a moment.

Yeah, I'm also bracing myself for the price reveal when that thing ships.
If it's too much for me (which seems fairly likely) I'm hoping there will be some 23mm primes going back into the used market that might fit my budget better.

I'm also watching the third party market with some hope for something in that range that is good enough. The Laowa 20mm shift looks interesting and is priced more reasonably but I have not seen any landscape work with it. Just some proof of concept demos of the shift feature which I might also put to good use with my real estate work.

Focus Stacking with a 645Z

14 images stacked in Photoshop...this model is all of 5 inches long, if that....amazing how this focus stacking program in PS works....this is a great way to show off the little plastic masterpieces.

120mm Macro legacy lens that has served for decades.......any individual shot with this lens, even if well stopped down, does not come close to this image....

£2349

A lot less, and a lot wider than a Pentax 28-45. And designed around 100mp bodies.

To me, this is the nail in the coffin for digital Pentax MF stuff. They just haven't released newer versions to match their current digital line up.

Focus stacking works very well
What a beauty of a model plane (and picture of course)

A couple of re-edits of Namibia. I'm trying a new minimalistic look that also conveys the heat and dryness of the area.

Let me know what you think. Good or bad, I'd like to hear from you guys.

Removing color makes one concentrate on the graphic quality of the image (composition, balance, harmony of the lines, direction of the light, texture, sharpness and contrast). Color is often a deterrent because it is simply beautiful in inself.

Haven't been, so for all I know this is an accurate representation. Having said that, the hard-edge horizons and bleached-out backgrounds have an illustrational (vs. photographic) feel.

I like them a lot, especially the first one. The tiny hint of green in the live trees and the extra subject matter of the watering hole and shrubs give it visual interest, and the shrubs running up the slope to the right give it three-dimensionality. That's just enough to make it look less like an abstraction and more like a picture of a real place. Very, very nice.
