Compendium 25 – Will it Blend?

Remember the video series where that blender company would intentionally grind up expensive, brand-new, and hard-to-find electronics, just to prove that their blenders were up to the task?

…Well, this is kind of like that, except that I periodically often test new gear to determine whether it works.  For me.

Ahem.

Anyhoo…somehow I always thought that if I ever bought a 35mm lens for the Nikon system, it would absolutely be the Sigma Art;

But this ain’t it.

However, this one is smaller, lighter, cheaper, and probably just as sharp.  And the background blur isn’t all that bad either.

And I’m not telling what it is.

🙂

Ok fine…it’s the Nikon 35mm f/1.8G ED FX (whew!) and it works on everything to date…including the all-important film bodies.

Yay.

This is Fuji Industrial 400 shot at ISO 320.

Because.

Crossfire

Crossfire-1

Manually focused with the Samyang 135mm f/2.

All-in-all, not a bad lens for the price.  I would love to own the Zeiss 135 APO, but it costs five times more, is larger, and has a focus throw that is just too long to track anything that moves.

To my knowledge, this post represents the first documented case of a confirmed “Carreraselfie” (obviously not mine…the car I mean).
