You'll know things are bad if your credit card ever gets stolen and the Mrs never shuts off the card because the thief is spending less than you do.Well ... used the money I got for my Little Oly sale (to my best friend) and got a Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm f 1.7 ASPH for use on street photography and family/indoor portraits, bought it used from CEX for 285 quid, condition looks okay on the lens (though the lens hood was so used that the pins that hold it in place are smoothed out so it's quite easy to bump it off the lens) and the only fault (of no major consequence) is 3 tiny pieces of debris inside the lens ... I am undecided if I should return it for that yet, I got it just today and I have a 7-day window of return.
Now the bigger problem is the misses is really pissed about me buying the lens because she can't understand why I need more lenses (then Oly 12-100mm Pro and Oly 100-400mm) ... I could try and explain and show her why but it would be in vain so I guess I will have to live with it (and her memory tends to be very long) ... now need to figure out how I can get the Panasonic Lumix G 42.5mm f 1.7 ASPH Power OIS to have the other end of the spectrum ... and I swear the Olympus MC-14 WILL BE THE LAST LENS ... (but then there's lens filters and tripod, for group family pictures, and monopod and Gorillapod and ... *dies*)
Really working back into my photography. I purchased the Pana 7-14 f/4, the DCR-250, and the Sigma 56 f/1.4 this week and last. Looking to find a Velvet 56 and debating between the PL 15, Sigma 16, and Oly 17. I need the best resolution I can get but am blanching at the weight of the Sigma. I hear mixed arguments about the PL15 and Oly17.
I hope so.Is it normal for a front element of a lens to be so reflective when photographed? Or is it just because of bright surroundings? I can see you, your fingers, your camera, everything.
Only film camera I ever had was a plastic, red point-and-shoot (Minolta?) but I never used it or even put any film into it. Maybe I still have it somewhere. Back in the day, I was actually seriously thinking of getting Voigtlander Bessa R2A or R3A but eventually I decided to skip film photography and get the digital Olympus C-5060WZ which I consider to be my very first camera. I don't think I will ever use film, but you never know.
