Got out with mine, & shot a few test frames. My favourite kind of testing. Real world :)

Yeah, I do shoot people occasionally. Very occasionally

I'd forgotten just how much I liked the 60mm (35mm film equivalent FOV) The diminutive little 40mm pancake on my 550D was the lens responsible for setting me off down the fixed focal length path, & I shot way more favorite pictures with it than I ever thought I did. Until I actually looked. The Siggy 30 may be its successor :)

My 30 & 56 are getting a lot of usage. Some more out of the 30

Do I spy the Dartmoor sculptures in your first shot, possibly on your way to a car show in SW Victoria?
:) Corindhap, between Ballarat and Colac. Yeah, on my way home from a Rock and roll Street party/car show in Ballarat. Originally discovered them out riding my motorcycles in the area. Good place to give the throttle cables a good stretching, without too much worry of running into the long arm of the law :)

Looks like an interesting place to visit, I'm always interested in little towns off the main roads.

I've been interested in getting a Sigma 30/1.4 for a while - it seems more capable of getting the look I like, so I don't know why I don't already have one!

Well, I wouldn't say it's a particularly interesting place to make a special trip to visit, but if you're passing by...…………………… You'd struggle to call it a town really, about 6 houses in relatively close-ish proximity, & a Hotel that unfortunately looks like it has closed down. shame as it was a little bit unique/different, a nice spot to stop on a ride for a pot & burger, or old fashioned pub fare.
You piqued my interest, I googled Dartmoor, & I'll now have to go take a look. The Princess Margaret Rose caves look like they're worth a look, as well as the chainsaw carvings I quite enjoy a little bit of a look around some of the older country towns too.

I'm really enjoying the Sigma 30. I'd forgotten just how much I like the 60mm equivalent field of view. I like it without realising it, I had the lovely little 40mm STM pancake on my APSC Canon, Adapted it to my EOSM as well, & was responsible for a great number of my favorite shots. I do seem to be attracted to some of the more unusual focal lengths though. The Sigma is a little bit soft wide open @ f/1.4, & can display quite a bit of CA. I actually don't mind that, less so as I get older, & just think of it as character :) It seems to AF just as well as native Panasonic lenses, if there is any difference in speed/accuracy, they're not noticeable in general shooting. I picked mine up brand new from Amazon Au back in November in a Black Friday sale, for $367 Au. Which is an absolute bargain I thought. Which is precisely why I grabbed it. Cheers

I'd love to get the trio, they have a distinctly different look to the O and P lenses, and buying them together probably makes a lot of sense.

Little towns have such gold to be mined, but it's so easy to forget to sift through them when passing from A to B.

Chrysler day yesterday. They've changed venues this year, not so picturesque as where they used to have it.
