Well I was speaking more to the contrast quality of the lens itself.... which in a couple of the "raw out of cam" shots seemed pretty good when the lightv was right, so I chalk it up to poor conditions, and AE's tendency to over gray things (especially in such conditions or real white ones)

So again just if you feel like it at some point, I'd be interested to see some from nice sunny/clear conditions.

Sorry Hayward - misunderstood you.

Yes it was a very bright day - too bright at times, and I made the mistake of leaving the cam on matrix metering. Usually seems to be a mistake. The other problem was I couldn't see the LCD in those condidtions, so trusted the histogram.

Must check metering in future.

I really like the filtered one - don't know why because it makes things look smoggier than what it probably was. But it's really neat looking, and something unusual.

Thanks Mtngal.

The filter was one from CS2. Selected the sky and applied the warm-up.

I bought one of these on Ebay last year, and it has been sitting under my desk for most of the time.

After seeing your efforts I was inspired I to try it out some more.

Mine is a Kiron (Kino) made version

The only down side to using it, is the swapping between push/pull zoom and twist zoom.

Not sure which I prefer.
