    Haven't posted in a while...was in chicago this past week and it was a great opportunity to try out my newest lens, Canon FD 24/2.8. Also some pics from this past weekend at Greenfield Village (Dearborn, MI). I already have a minolta 28mm but wanted something wider without having to pay over $100.

    I used the hdr paint function set on low for many of the pics. I find myself being a big fan of this effect especially set on low. It makes the pics much more interesting without having to do any post processing (which I hate to do). The lens itself is really nice as well. It has pretty good MFC (12 inches...maybe less).

    View from the rooftop of a friend's appt on michigan ave. No hdr paint...just increased contrast and saturation a bit (maybe too much??)

    The train was actually moving but it still ended up being pretty sharp. All the hdr pics were handheld...and it seems to compensate for any and all shake/movement really well

    After using this lens, I found myself wanting something even wider. So I bought the minolta MD 16mm fisheye! Cost a pretty penny...but I wanted something really wide to take with my this weekend to Denver!

    By the way, I ordered a Sigma 30 2.8 but order was finally cancelled because "out of stock". And now I wonder if I would really benefit from this lens compared to the FD 24mm, knowing that I mainly MF. Hence don't know if it's still worth buying it. Any clue ?
