The 60mm continues to amaze

Just out with the PL5 and a couple of lenses, (60mm & 40-150mm). Had the 60mm on when I took these. I followed mother Swan back to where I first saw her and the Heron was waiting, that didn't go over too good. So I thought I would go and take some pictures of him, he would leave and Mother Swan would be happy. this tree is where he went.

This is what the 60mm lens got, straight OOC.


Not too bad, if I need to I could crop.

Lightroom not quite 1:1 but close framed and cropped. 2 different picture I know, but take from the exact same place. I did tweak the sharpening sliders, (59, 1.5, 14, 29). but it was great before. The 40-150 didn't do as well, but I think it was me not getting the shutter speed right.

Nice shots. I liked my 60mm, but didn't love it. That's why I sold it.

Re: The 60mm continues to amaze

I think after this session of photos, I might be bringing it along more often. It helps hide my errors better than the 40-150, and with the 40-150 I am noticing some purple in the pictures. Worse comes to worse I have the big heavy 50-200mm to use.

Fringeing when? At higher ISO or all the time?

I have noticed it only when the lens is pushed. 150mm and wide open, shooting in high contrast. Noticed it when I took pictures of the Vulcan flying at cosford. Easy fix in LR, but it still happens. Wonder if I went up in ISO so I could stop down some if it would be a solution. I'm not using a proper lens hood either, just a rubber screw on from Jessops. I think this is a more of a me vs lens issue than the lens being at fault.

Sounds stupid, but have you checked the Inner lens is perfectly clean, I found this problem on my 14-45mm.

The 60mm does look like a good lens from your shots. The second shot is nice and crisp. If I'm shooting birds I tend to need to be at 300mm and still have to crop, even something as big as a heron.

No it doesn't sound stupid, and no I haven't. I can see how a big old thumb print on that lens would throw the color off.

That's what amazed me, the second shot is a huge crop. The first shot is just to show how far I was from the bird. The second shot I just went 1:1 in lightroom and cropped. It even printed out at 8x6 okay.
