    I bought a Sigma DP1 Merrill to go with the DP2 :/

    It was a great deal to be fair, I think I should have got the DP1 in the first place. The wider angle lens suits me better

    I got some photos of The Iron Bridge in Ironbridge the other week, although the light was a little flat unfortunately.

    Nesscliffe Hills, home to the potential real life inspiration for Robin Hood, apparently.

    You really caught the light. Love the shots looking out from the pines and onto the fields below.

    In other news, I'be been thinking of getting a new lens for my m43 and at the moment I'm leaning towards the Panasonic 15mm 1.7

    I should get a standard zoom really, but after using primes for basically my entire time as a camera owner I'm used to not being able to zoom.

    I want something compact. I like the idea of an aperture ring on the lens and I really like the MF/AF switch on the lens.

    15mm is wider than the 20 I've been using for years now. The AF is much faster.

    But... no zoom. Damn it.

    A bit more zoom in situations like these would be nice.

    @askew 30mm on full frame. Everything on m43 is doubled.

    Most pictures I take are on streets or landscapes so I rarely need zoom. Like this

    Lovely. Portrait is particularly nice.

    How much post-processing has gone into those pete? Intrigued to know how those tones are straight out of camera.

    A little bit but not loads. Using the Sigma pro software tool (sooo sloooow) I set the colour profile to Landscape but that was about it. Maybe other very minor adjustments. For some reason known only to Sigma it doesn't seem to have a crop tool (or at least I can't find it) so I cropped in Lightroom.

    It seems to have quite bad chromatic aberration which was a surprise. There is a function of the software to fix it but I have no idea what I'm doing so didn't bother.

    The portrait was with the X100F (thank btw, I like it too). The Sigma wouldn't cope with that low light!

    I started using my original X100 again. It's still amazing.
