    Your house sucks.

    You should sell that fancy camera and get a nicer place.

    It is interesting, but the softness of the lens distracts me. I would find a harsher, sharper presentation more in line with the subject.

    Yeah, it is a little soft. Not all of the shots I have got with it are soft. It is kicking my butt trying to learn it.

    I since it zooms somewhat, I have noticed that is is sharper towards the middle and this was toward the wide end, if not completely on it (as most zooms are).

    I have found it is easier for me to set the nifty fifty on 1.8 and then work with the fisheye on zooming (which is strange in itself) and and smaller f/stops thru it. The problem is that when I get too small, the circle gets smaller and I can't predict that as I shoot yet because it is just blowing my mind. I mean, I see the lens darkening inside but it just doesn't connect in between my ears what it is doing. It is so different in how it reacts, not that is bad but it is making it more of a challenge.

    Autofocus doesn't work with it. I rarely use it but it might make my life a tad easier getting used to it. Well, it will because of the 50 but it takes forever for it to lock and then it will lock on what it wants instead of what I want. I have always hated auto focus for that reason! And yes, I know I can pick the focal point but I get better results doing it myself.

    I guess I just need to keep playing :supergrin:

    I need to shoot some film with it too. :)

    Oh, and what kind of snake is that? It almost looks like it's tongue is blue in that b/w shot!

    It is dark blue - that's its real color (the photo is in color, even though it seems B&W). The snake is the Western Rattlesnake, common around this area.
