Since acquiring a 30mm Lumix 2.8 lens it has not left the camera. One advantage with this prime lens is increased sharpness of image – the disadvantage being that camera shake becomes more noticeable (even with in-built lens stability) but tripods are not for out and about days. Hence I’ve fewer passable sharp shots especially whilst I get the hang of manual focus.
Besides being a good enough macro lens, the 30mm lens is a very adequate general purpose lens -as here where I cover the waterfront, as the song says.
I just have to get used to not having the zoom facility of my kit lens (14-140mm)- even so I can still reach for the skies.
[I’ve just noticed that these 2 shots would made a good diptych – click to view closer]
So I am more than happy with the len’s long view handling, and am making the most of being able to get in close enough to venture into abstracts. Who would guess…
And tomorrow it’s near and far in monochrome – the colour I am more at ease with!
