Haha. It's slow anyways -- but useable wide open in garbage light at ISO 2000 (yes, I'm in bed eating breakfast). Gonna be interesting once I can actually get out and use it (head CT at noon, neurologist at 3).

Obviously the parts being covered by the tabs aren't exposed when the picture is taken. You're seeing that in the pic since I made a contact print.

EDIT: It's also seen in enlargements since some photographers prefer it. For example Avedon left it in a lot of his photos.


I'm getting my broken D2X and 24-70 today!

And the Samyang 35 1.4 is hugely dissapointing.

Grr... I was literally about to buy the Nikon 35 f/1.8, but it's out of stock everywhere right now... I thought it was made in a plant that was in Thailand?

EDIT: Never mind. My federal tax refund came today, so I just pulled the trigger on a used Sigma 30 f/1.4 in demo condition from Adorama for $390!

A friend of mine has it for Canon and swears by it over the Canon 28mm f/1.8

Yea, to be honest I'm considering the lens myself. The 28mm is a nice length, but it's unusable on f/1.8 for me because of the CA and lack of sharpness.

So I'm taking apart a 24-70 and this is fun stuff.

I really hope it was already broken to begin with!
