    I headed out for some fall foliage in a part of Hocking Hills State Park that I'd never ventured to before: Cantwell Cliffs. I'll definitely be going back. Some beautiful cliffsides and it looks like two beautiful waterfalls will be present during the heavy water times in the spring (they were both dry today). All with the A7 II: used a bunch of lenses today: FD 20/2.8, 35/2.0, 85/1.8, Minolta MD 135/2.8 and the Zeiss 55/1.8:

    Thanks everyone.
    A few more from yesterday with the FD 20/2.8 (#2, 3 and 6) FD 35/2 (#5) and FE 55/1.8 (#1, 4). And yes, as evidenced by the last photo...the FD 20 can flare rather spectacularly in the right circumstances.

    Gorgeous, just gorgeous!

    Having beautiful parks like this one within a short drive somewhat makes up for our winters..

    I grew up in Columbus and spent lots of time in the Hocking Hills hunting during my teens. I have long since shifted to hunting with a camera and have recently added the A7R II to my collection of Olympus OMD equipment. For over forty-five years now I have lived in Palm Beach county Florida and my interest have shifted to underwater photography. It is nice to see that the Hocking Hills have become a state park and that it has remained so pristine. Thanks for your interesting reviews of both Olympus and Sony equipment. And GO BUCKS.
