Funny how things work (DA 16-45)

At noon time today, I went back to a Victorian house I had previously taken a shot of.

The original was with the DA 18-55 and todays was with my recently acquired DA 16-45.

While I could see a marked difference in the lens with the extra 2mm on the wide end, I did not seem to be able to duplicate the original.

The time of day, lighting (Partly cloudy - vs- sunny), shadows were all different and, come to think of it, I used spot metering as opposed to Matrix.

This judgement, of course, from looking at the result in the LCD and not on a full screen or print (could change everything).

What I learned? Sometimes you can't duplicate, or improve, work you've already done.

Amen to that. When the shot you want is there, take it.
Nothing will ever be the same again.

Well! UPS just delivered my new DA 16-45 yesterday and other than a few junk shots around the house, I haven't done anything at all with it yet.

I was thinking about going around a re-shooting some of the stuff I shot with the Kit lens. But, after reading your comments, I may just leave well enough alone and be happy with what I've already shot.

I hope to have some pics to post here by Monday of next week.

On my website I have this photo American Heritage Photography - AB004 which was taken with a 3mp N*k*n p&s.

I have tried repeatedly with my other cameras to recapture the feel of this photo, and just can't seem to get what I want.

I feel your pain.

Hi Eddy, look at it this way, now you have even more photographic opportunities. The light is always changing, and you have a myriad of other parameters you can play with. The same subject can look markedly different in an hour or so. If you missed a shot there will be another one just as interesting, not the same one mind, but just as interesting for sure.
