    MPT > Like the dogs playing, great action and probably the best snow rendering I've seen in a while..

    New (to me) 7-14mm lens in the mail and it's been raining for two days, reduced to taking snap shots of the shop

    The space is 26' x 36' so what you are seeing is 26' x 26'...



    Cheers, Don

    Don,

    Enjoy the new toy. I rented the 7-14 for a week. It was a unique lens. Really amazing field of view. I had it in NYC and getting the entire 70 stories of 30 Rock from across the street is hard to imagine. It is a lens that takes a learning curve to get the best from it. I decided that the bulk would keep me from carrying it on a regular basis so occasional rental makes sense. Meanwhile I bought the much smaller and lighter 9-18 to compliment my 12-60.

    Where are you renting Olympus lenses from? This could be handy. Once in a while I need exotic glass but not enough to own it.

    Bulk ? It's only a bit chubbier than the 12-60 and about the same length. I was actually surprised it was as "small" as it is

    Finally, a small period of SUN but a forecast for T-storms tonight, rain and SNOW tomorrow, yikes..

    Cropped to 16/9



    For reference, full image...

    Hey Phil - I'm shooting with an E-500. The "sunset" pic was taken w/ the 12-60 and my dogs (my most common subject) are almost always taken with the 50-200.

    Went to a tulip festival on Sat. Hopefully I can get a couple shots up here this week sometime - unfortunately it was completely overcast the whole time we were there.

    Don,

    I just remember it was bulky and heavy compared to the 9-18. The front element with the fixed lens shade was a bit of work to fit into smaller bags. One thing that was difficult to remember (read risky) was how close you are to objects directly in front of the lens. I recall nearly tripping over car bumpers and the like while framing a subject. It was also tough to keep my feet out of the frame at times.

    I have rented from Lensrentals.com twice. The other Olympus rental source I know of is prophotorental.com. It is a great way to test drive a lens.

    I guess it's what you feel most comfortable with.

    The Bigma was a bit much handheld for me but after using the 50-200, both with and without the ec20 handheld the 7-14 is no problem.

    IQ is more important to me than size/weight up to the point of not using it cuz it's inconvenient.

    Cheers, Don
