    Shout out to all of you folks for your amazing framing/lighting/post-prod work!

    I would never consider the following photos to be near the level of beauty witnessed previously in this thread, but here are a few random shots from walking around our warehouse yard today.

    Thanks so much! I love your photos of this solemn tree...my wife and I love scenes of a solitary tree against a larger backdrop...not really sure why; it must be the juxtaposition, but still, these last few photos of yours really stand out! (All the rest are wonderfully framed/lit/shot, as well)

    Yep, no shortage of rain and clouds for a good portion of the year. I don't mind. Great shots, as usual, by the way!

    Picked up an old, but new to me, lens that I'm loving - a Contax/Zeiss 28 f/2.8 (C/Y mount adapted for Canon EOS). It's wonderfully sharp and contrasty and can lend quite a feeling of depth to some images. Here's a couple from over the weekend - click through for a larger view on Flickr.

    Same lighthouse, but obviously very different conditions and perspectives - it was very foggy the first couple of nights, but merely wet and cloudy thereafter.

    I got a Fuji X-E1 the other day, and a Canon FD lens adapter because I already had several FD mount lenses. The dime-a-dozen 50mm 1.8 is definitely the best of the bunch, and the easiest to use:

    The Vivitar 70-210mm zoom is really tricky to focus, and it's not even remotely sharp, but it makes for some interesting macro shots:

    ^^^ Doesn't the Fuji have focus peaking? Or is it just difficult because of play, travel, etc?

    It does, but because the lens is so soft, the camera doesn't seem to effectively show when the focus is actually peaked. So really all I'm doing is magnifying the scene in the EVF, then focusing until the image is "least blurry". The 50mm 1.8 and 28mm 2.8 lenses I have show details sharply enough that the peak focusing works wonderfully, even with my mediocre eyesight.

    Ah, gotcha. I've been thinking about pricing out the Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f/2.8 zooms, which are supposed to be pretty good, so I was curious to hear why you were having trouble.

    Some of those FD lenses... man, I like the way some of them render more than the current Canon glass. I'd like to pick up a mirrorless body soon (likely an a7 or direct successor), but I have a feeling that the FD glass will be considerably more expensive by the time I do.

    Keep in mind my Vivitar is a lowly F4.5, so I believe it's probably a relatively low-end lens. I've heard the faster 2.8 models are quite good, but I haven't tried one. The 50mm 1.8 Canon lens I've been using is fantastic, and I see those things everywhere something like $30. Some of the higher end FD lenses are already quite expensive on Ebay, unfortunately.

    The Sony A7 (or successor, like you say) would be sooooo nice! Full frame sensor in a fairly small package, and at a relatively low price!
