Back from a short walk outside of my house, to grab a few additional pictures with the 16-70/4. I apologize in advance to you readers, are they are mostly boring as hell, but the weather was pretty and the sun not far from setting, so I thought it’d always be better than just snaps in my own backyard ! At and least I was able to really take advantage of the 16mm wider end.
But before I bore you to tears with worthless ‘”landscape” snaps, here’s one of Marla chilling out with Cannelle on the couch. Order of the doc, Cutie Pie is ill
Colors, contrast, sharpness, detail, there’s not much to flaw here. But distorsion ?? Hellooo ! And this is with auto correction turned ON. Errr…
Meet “Lucky”. He’s one of our neighbors’ dog, a sweety pie that Marla always stops to go pet on the way to, and back from, school
Here is was mesmerized by the sight of Cannelle walking next to me. Notice the Zeiss vibrant colors ?
Eh eh, can’t count how many times I shot that same pictures during various “test” walks 😉
And I have a bunch like this too
Here’s my wild pooch. She’s deaf to anyone when lose outdoor
Now, that IS colorful !
Ok, 16mm, now we’re talking ! I know the 2mm difference vs. the 18-55 sounds silly, but in practice it is noticeable, and quite useful
I totally apologize for how repetitive those are.
Eh eh, that’s what I was after when buying that lens. Blurring ability. OK, I cheated, just a tad, the 18-55 would have isolated the subject almost as much. But in other circumstances the 16-70 really has an edge in that department
I have a much more ambitious project for the lens tomorrow. I intend to (try to) document the whole transfer of our new pony, from the stables we’re buying her from, to our own. Not sure I’ll be able to actually address all the purchase details, last quick check on physical state, paperwork, payment, trailer loading, etc, AND make pictures, but I aim to try.
In the meanwhile tow more super boring shots
So there will be a 3rd part… Stay tuned !
