In Topic: advice sought 16-35mm or 17-40mm

18 October 2014 - 09:32 PM

This has been hashed around here quite a bit, do some forum searches.

 

All are good; the Sigma 15mmFE is also a favorite for full frame, focuses close and is very sharp; I think it's a copy of an older Canon lens design. The Canon 8-15FE is pretty cool too.

 

Personally, I'm much happier with primes than zoom on full-frame.

We've had two people drop out, so we now have a Superior Cabin available for $3880/pp each.

 

This is going to be a great trip: new, luxurious boat, height of humpback whale season with mantas, sharks and dolphins thrown in for good measure! If you want to shoot BIG animals, huge schools of fish, then this trip is for you!

 

Get in contact wilh me asap if you're interested.

Very nice, we are running a shop trip there in 2016. Your shots are inspirational... ;-)


In Topic: Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18 mm: Background too dark

02 October 2014 - 02:38 PM

I like the blues on the 2 Oly shots better, IMHO. Nice dynamic contrast with the color on the wreck. The first, you're simply too far away and trying to light too large an area.

 

One of the things you're seeing is much, much greater detail and dynamic range, and smooth transistions are going to look darker at the same exposures.

 

Just adjust your shutter speed a bit if you want it lighter.
