With the 17mm f1.8

On a very grey day, a sign and two historic piles.

What a Classic Stephen ! ! !

Love these three images on a theme, the last just caps it.

Thanks Mark. One of the greatest perils round here, contrary to your mountaineering exploits, is the quantity of horse eggs. It seems that there is a riding stable round every corner!

Well at least you don't need to buy manure for your garden Stephen, and as far as mountaineering goes I decided to quit those exploits a while back whilst still in front!

Nice sharp set Stephen, the 17mm looks like a worthwhile purchase. Olympus certainly have some wonderful lenses for the m.43 system.

Re: With the 17mm f1.8

A proper pile! Nice.

(The background in Number1 looks a bit horrible at this size ...)

Re: With the 17mm f1.8

One historic pile looks rather older than the other. Mind you, No 3 is a steaming good picture!

Trust you to waste no time in finding another Big Hoose!

That's the wife's new workplace. We live next door. Not as big as the big Big Hoose, but older, and in much better condition. ( The hoose, not the wife) Nicer people, too!

Maybe you could get a job mowing the lawn!

Re: With the 17mm f1.8

These are nice crisp images....is the 17mm as hot as the stuff in the last image...I'm interested to know if its sharp at the edges? .... I've read mixed reviews and will inevitably have to have one of these at some point.

Re: With the 17mm f1.8

I've not checked the edge sharpness yet. Mainly because I seldom photograph anything where the subject is at the edge, therefore sharpness there could actually be distracting!

Re: With the 17mm f1.8

Good point! I already know the centre sharpness is stunning....like the 12mm the reviews and analysis presented on the web indicate these lenses are top notch in terms of construction and handling but could be better optically at the edges. Having said that both of these appear to meet or exceed similar analysis for the Canon 24-105 f4L - which up until recently was my benchmark (and a very well respected lens of course).
Note to self....stop reading analysis and get real!

Re: With the 17mm f1.8

In my unprofessional opinion, the market for lenses with razor-sharp edge sharpness is rather slim.

A) some macro applications

B) banknote forgers

C) test graph photographers

There - I've said it! I now expect to be flamed!

You're a tease Stephen
I'm sure you've looked

Certainly looks to be a lovely little prime in the 12 f/2 mould.

Btw Nicely illustrative images of your new found stomping ground.
