Clear night for once. Obligatory moon shot.

Dragged the big ol lens and also the medium format on a 17 mile hike; beach to summit to beach. Poor life choices I tell ya.

Took a bunch of pictures intending to stitch together into a nice ultrawide pano at 100mm. But my new computer died a few weeks ago so I have only one shot to show for it. Atmospheric haze is always an issue with supertele. Summit to central business downtown is 13.2 miles /21.25 km as the crow flies.

100mm, ƒ/5, 1/2500, ISO200. Handheld, auto IS. Wifi RAW download to Lightroom Mobile. +8 dehaze, +8 clarity.

I'm sure I've read countless books on an 800mm equivalent being the preferred focal length of the great street photographers!? Surely? No? Oh. 😭

@saladin Jason, it's interesting the perspective (both literal and figurative) that medium to long telephotos give to this genre.

Personally, I like medium telephotos a lot for landscape shots - around 75-150mm, and sometimes a bit longer.


Yes, agree. I've already had a brief play with the 100-400 for landscapes and I think it has some real potential. Especially in winter / cooler scenes, I'm picturing a few places I'd like to take it to. You can run into heat haze issues here in Australia at such long focal lengths quite quickly in warmer months. I found that out years ago trying to shoot some cricket on a sigma at 500mm. LOL, i was a bit slow on the uptake as to why images didn't look sharp despite quick shutter speeds.....

FWIW, these posts have all been incamera jpegs. Imported to snapseed for watermark, border, +20 sharpening in "detail" tab and seasoning to taste.

And eucalypt haze, when the place isn't burning to the ground ...

Can be very clearly seen here:

Man that is a great shot. Doesn't feel overly crispy or noisy to me.

Did some cross-lake snow backpacking. 100mm is really rough on fitting a person into a landscape without them being lost or chopping out most of the landscape. I choose to hike with the O100400 mounted in the event I see some wildlife on trail.

A couple of what I guess to be unarmed F-18 Hornets flew over us as we were walking. Quite high and I wasn't even aware of them until we heard them pass. Wasn't able to get a good shot of them together and what I've attached to this post is a heavy crop. I can't wait until San Francisco Fleet Week!

On day two our campsite was buzzed by a pontoon plane we figured was waiting for landing clearance on the other side of the ridge.

Edit: The shot above is interesting. I've no idea why - or what - that bluish fringe is around the top of this guys helmet. It was on the G9 and i was playing around focus tracking and every single shot in the burst has the same fringe. Its in the jpeg, its in the raw. Activating chromatic abberation and purple fringing in DXO does nothing to it. I can't find it in any other shots of cyclists, including some wearing dark/black helmets. It seems restricted to this one specific helmet and/or colour!

Spent half an hour at my local park this morning. There are about 10 swans living on one of the lakes. Some were busy getting to know each other :)

First shot is a heavy crop. Rest are cropped by 20-30%.

Nice light surrounding the bird and outlining the bird in the fourth shot, Richard. Good timing too with the beautiful posture of the bird.
