Greg, do you have a few 14mm, super wide angle shots you could show us?

Before investing in a digital SLR lens systemsuper wide performances arewhat I'm really interested in. Converters on superzoom 10x-12x cameras are just that - converters and you get what you pay for.

Thanks

Max
I have a few on my Smugmug site here:

A Spectacular lens. On May 28 I leave for 12 days in Paris and plan to have numerous images from this lens online shortly after returning.

All beautiful and inspiring work!

Bon voyage for Paris!

And while you're there maybe you can take a quick trip to the Eiffel Tower and do a like-for-like shot with this one I took a few years back with a 19mm Elmarit 2.8 series I lens. The comparison with the new generation wide angle lenseswill be very interesting

Only problem will be the pool may no longer be there. And the trees will surely have leaves on now, where this was taken in the dead of winter and there was no obstruction to see the tower or refelctions in the pool.

Awesome...all those lights. Never been to Europe. I've not looked forward to any trip more than this.

Also lots of great night shots along the banks of the River Seine. There are big tourist passenger ferries (bateaux mouches) going past all the time. They have enough flood lights for a football stadium andlight up3 or 4 buildings wideon theclosest bank to themas they sail by - and the bridges.

Easy to shoot panoramic panning video clipswith their lightsas well.

Take some good walking shoes. Only way to see Paris, and certainly to photograph it.
Use the Metro with a book (carnet)of tickets.

Montmartre, with the littlecobbled streets, passages, staircases and rooftops - at dawn. Before the tourist crowds!

La Defense - lots of new buildings.

Hope the weather is good, bright clear mornings of June, and clear magic hours. You will have a ball.

Looking forward to see the results

Max

Hi again,Max.

Just got back from Paris. Beautiful, wonderful city. I didn't make it over to the Eiffel Tower for a night shot, but here are images I've posted so far to my website, of which there are a few shots of the tower I did with the 7-14 set to 7mm:

Still have many others I will be posting over the next several days. Never dealt with this many images at one time before.It takes a while to get through 1,500 RAW files!
