    My first day out with a newly acquired Canon FDn 24mm f2.8 lens on my A7r. All photos were taken yesterday, and I feel I'm so happy with this 24mm, that I can at last stop looking.

    Other than the shipwreck image, there was very little PP done on the others.

    Love the first shot of the SS Ayrfield. Of all the iconic things to shoot in Sydney this humble little old wreck is easily the most interesting.

    Nice shots....and agree, Canon's FD 24/2.8 (and the 28 and 35) are outstanding WA lenses for sure

    Thanks for the comments. Most of my weekend photos were just while out walking, but I made a point to visit the shipwreck on the way home for a dedicated shot.

    I'm sorely tempted to get the FDn 28mm f2.8 as well. Based on my experience with the 24 alone, however I already have the FE 35mm and not sure how much use the 28mm would actually get.

    As humble a lens the FD 50mm f1.8 is, I grabbed one of those last week in mint condition. I think it's also great. Being an original early 1970's model with chrome nose, it is a bit on the heavy side though.

    Great shots :D, you sure do get around on your first day though, from Sydney all the way to the seacliff bridge.

    You sure know how to wrangle great shots from that lens!

    While you're considering other options, you may want to check out the FD 20mm f/2.8 as well. I love mine, and it's clear that wide angle shots are well within your comfort zone.

    Saturday was a big day. Drove down to Lake Illawarra, walked around Windang Island, drove back to the Sea Cliff Bridge and walked around there for a couple of hours, and back to Homebush Bay before finishing up.

    Sounds like a long day, I drive over the seacliff bridge often for work, it certainly is a beautiful spot. Not sure if my offsider would be too keen for me to stop and take some pics though :rolleyes:

    That lens renders beautifully with the A7r.

    great combo.
