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).

No hdr paint...just increased contrast and saturation a bit (maybe too much??)

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!
