Default Oh, Baby....

Here we go...







Captured with the "other lens" you don't see, the 60mm f2.8 Macro.

The 17mm f1.8's looking pretty good to me. Shooting landscapes this time of the year with mostly bare trees will give you a pretty good idea how the lens performs all over the field and I'm liking this lens..





This next image the sun was just off to the right. The lens seems to handle just off-axis sunlight very well, but I'll have the hood for the 17mm later this next week anyway..





The 75mm f1.8 is one really sexy lens to just hold. Using it is icing on the cake..





At f2.8, this was as close to f1.8 as I got with the 17 today..

....what a lens arsenal you have!

The 17 does seem to be a really good one and the 75 w/hood is as attractive as it is capable.

The 'cowpoke' above; it that the one some people wanted the six-shooter removed?

How's the tablet exercise coming along.

I'm getting cabin fever but did get all remnants of Christmas back into storage today; the workload is diminished but now it is to rain so more 'cabin time'.

The tablet it just too cool. I'm now using it with finger control to navigate the web. Two finger-swipes to move the pages up and down, one finger-swipes to move the curser, tapping the pad once for left click and using the pen to right-click and tapping three fingers brings up the radial tool which opens up literally dozens of other options.

The pen makes using drawing controls in Photoshop like the Lasso Tool for making selections super-easy, and pressure control for painting in masks is really cool.

That first shot should come with a parental guidance warning.

Cool gear porn! I agree that bare tree branches against a bright blue sky are a real challenge for most lenses and the 17mm certainly looks just about perfect, maybe just a tiny bit of ca on the branches at the top of the second to last shot.

If i'm counting right the second-to-last image, the cemetery statue, was captured with the 75mm f1.8. Can't remember if I checked the CA correction box in Adobe Camera RAW on that one or not.

this was the one where I saw just a tiny bit on the branches in the top, no where near as bad as what I see with panny 14mm but pixel peeping at the original on smugmug I see it there too. Nothing really distracting if you aren't looking for it.

Great lens line-up. The 45mm is missing...I thought you have it, don't you Greg?

Yep, still have it. It and the 7.5mm Rokinon are in the bag with the 12, 17 and 75.
