After um-ing an ah-ing for a long time over whether to get this lens or not and I finally caved. Glad I did. This lens is so much fun to play with. Below are a few test shots I’ve done.
After taking a 5-minute crash course in php coding I have managed to make the banner on the front page choose a random image. Anyways, enjoy.

The advantage of living on the top of the Great Dividing Range is that you get some spectacular views if you know where to go.
This was taken looking south off Silver Pinch Rd. Click through to the article to see the northern view and a short video.
I put this together just so I could see what my 60D was capable of. I am definately no videographer and should probably stick to still images. When it’s actually in focus (manual focus), it’s very sharp. A DSLR allows you to play with depth of field very easily which is something that a normal video camera struggles with. This lets you get some cool out of focus action otherwise known as ‘bokeh’ in your videos. This was shot with a 50mm f/1.8II and a 24-105mm f/4L IS.
Finished work just before sunrise so I decided to scoot up to Picnic Point again to get another sunrise shot. In my sleep deprived state I forgot to bring my jumper with me from work and it was a lovely 9 degrees (celsius). I think it was worth standing around freezing myself.
