My best buy ever. The Carl Zeiss Distagon 2/35 ZE. Three years I have had it, for one of those years this was my only lens for my Canon 5D.  So sharp and produces so good colors and contrast that it put all other lenses I have tried in the shadow. Love that Zeiss lens. Has some magical fairy dust or something..  It’s only manual focus, but if you can live with that I recomend it.

A Common Eider ( Ærfugl in Norwegian ); i have not much knowlegde about birds but a woman that was watchin them told me it was a male.  Picture taken at Kirkøy, Hvaler in Norway March 8.
Wiki says . (Somateria mollissima) is a large (50–71 cm body length) sea-duck that is distributed over the northern coasts of Europe, North America and eastern Siberia. It breeds in Arctic and some northern temperate regions, but winters somewhat farther south in temperate zones, when it can form large flocks on coastal waters. It can fly at speeds up to 113 km/h (70 mph).

A friend, Hans that was actually shot with a pistol here. I treated the injuries before hospital and doctor took over. Smiling as always, but this wound was serious.

Some time later I was in a chainsaw accident,  and it took the hospital 2 hours to stich me up. 50 stitches. My bad, not wearing helmet and chainsaw safety clothing.  So I have had a rough couple of months, not taken many pictures with my Canon 5D. My Ricoh GR have been used a lot since it’s always in my jacket.

Penicillin and painkillers. Not a good picture in any way, but a reminder about these days.

November. No snow yet here in Fredrikstad, Norway. This  month I’m using both my Canon 5D / Zeiss 35mm combo and my Ricoh GR ( digital mk V APS-C 2013 ) compact point and shoot . Have now sold my Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art because I always prefered my Zeiss 35mm and never used the Sigma much, dont miss it at all.  My Ricoh GR is even better than I hoped for.  A good camera in every way. Solid and excellent picture quality. Use it a lot.
Also testing some low budget gear like Canon 450D ( Digital Rebel XSi / Kiss X2 Digital ) and Canon 650D ( known as Kiss X6i in Japan and Rebel T4i in USA).  Cheap Canon lenses as 50mm 1.8 and Sigma 70-300 tested with these cheaper Canon bodies.

Trying out some low budget gear this moth. Borrowed a Canon 650D + Sigma 70-300 first.

Canon 650D with Sigma 70-300. Exif: f5.6, ISO 2500.  2500/1 sec shutterspeed,  and -1/3 exposure. A tricky handheld @300mm.
Had to get the high shutterspeed to get the boat sharp. f5,6 was fastest apperture possible and ISO 2500 was lowest i got here.

No photographer is as good as the simplest camera.  ~Edward Steichen

Always been a SLR user as main system. Ability to use different high quality lenses and hook up external flashguns / triggers and studio equipment has become my preferred way to work with photography. But for street photography I sometimes want to use a small compact. And always had one in my jacket. Here is my digital compact history.. READ MORE HERE.

This little review about my Panasonic Lumix GF3 is starting here. Just installed Lightroom 3.6 that was included in the package. ACR detected the RAW files from the GF3 so things are running smoothly 🙂

Here is the first sample picture.  From RAW and converted to B&W in Lightroom.

I enjoy this camera a lot so far. It’s fast AF and bps, colors, sharpness and Iso 160-800 is great. ISO 1600 i kind of crap and I will only use it if I have to. Like if I see an UFO or something. So far so good. Also put on a Gordy Strap :

Going to write what I think about this camera/lens and post all pictures first month in this post.
