Hi there,
as I told you earlier I spent my holidays in Southern Bavaria. Of course not without sharing some classical impressions whith you lot.

let's start with the good old "Neuschanstein" Castle. There are concerts every once in a while on the top floor of the castle. Even though the concert hall itself is decorated rather cheesy, the views from the balconies are fantastic.

These are views from the "Alpsee", a lake very close to the castle.

...and how I wish our FZs had at least 28mm wideangle!
Greetings

My favorite is the third one, though the first one is stunning also. Your last one is a great example of why a wider angle would be really nice on these cameras (but would you then have to give up some of the telephoto capabilities?).

wonderful photos. Thanks for sharing.

I've toyed with the idea of getting a wide-angle adaptor. I don't think it's necessary for landscape photos, though, since I just take overlapping photos and stitch them together. I think a wide-angle would be useful for me when I take photos of my son's marching band. Since they are almost always moving it's not practical to take overlapping shots. If I get the adaptor it would be primarily for that purpose.

Good shots all, and I really enjoyed seeing the castle.

Thanks a lot for the encouragement, Francesco, Mtngal, Ladyhawk and Tcook!

Yes, it was really a pleasure to use the camera on that sunny day with all the beautiful light in the air.
To tell you the truth Mtngal and Ladyhawk, I already have a wide angle adaptor. The problem is, when walking with my people (as I was that day), I do not want them to wait for me all the time (neither do I want to run for them). That's why I didn't use it for that last shot. I guess I should be a little more daring next time. After all, don't we take our photos for our friend as well?
If I had to choose again between 28mm wide angle with 300mm tele and 35mm wide angle with 420mm tele, however, I would pick the latter again. Not only because of the possibility to capture the tiny details far-off, but also for the shallow dof at full tele that comes in handy for nice portraits (thank you mega o.i.s.).
And a powerful tele on the other hand cannot be imitated by any software. At least not without loss of quality.
