A L of a collection Project 365(2) Day 98

Two maxims:

1.The qualities of your photographs are only as good as the lenses you use. There is little point in laying out for a decent camera and then adding budget lenses.
2.Once you have used a L series lens you are hooked; there is no going back! Although other EF lenses are very good and I am sure the likes of Sigma and Tamron make great lenses for Canon; according to reviews, they are not quite in the same league as L series lenses. That is why I am now a Canon L series fanboy.

There is a lot to like about the red ring lenses from the solid build quality to the smooth way they operate. When it comes to images; the sharpness, the colour and the creamy bokeh seem to be unbeatable. L series lenses might not make you a better photographer but they certainly help.

In my collection so far:-

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM: the lens that came with the camera and the start of my L obsession. This is the brilliant walk around lens that I use most of the time. Not without its flaws; e.g. there is a trace of barrel distortion wide angle which thankfully can easily be remedied in Photoshop.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM: my next purchase because I wanted to get in close. I love this lens for how close you can get with it and the fact that you can use it hand held and at full aperture. It will make a great portrait lens. I love the versatility of zooms but for sheer quality, you can’t beat a prime!

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM: my latest lens takes the range to 200mm which is probably as far as I will want to go. Wildlife photographers or aircraft spotters like my friend Pete would probably find this limiting and would have probably go for the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM but that is nearly three times the price of the 70-200 and a lot heavier. I can neither justify nor do I really need that

If I ever feel that I need that extra range, I can buy the excellent Canon 1.4 extender which drops the lens by one stop in aperture and looses next to nothing in quality.

With the quantity of light we have in Spain, I am hoping that I won’t miss image stabilisation on this lens which would have near doubled the price. I’ll just have to adopt my technique to make sure I am using a fast enough shutter speed and thus avoid camera shake.

PS Purists would argue that it would have been more logical to have bought the Canon EF 24-70mm F2.8L USM Lens instead of the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM and avoid the overlap but then the ?200 discount on the kit lens was irresistible.

Nokton 35mm SC on M6

Nokton 35mm SC on M6

New M compatible lenses are hard to find these days. Fujiya Camara in Nakano, Tokyo had this single coated 35mm/1.4 in stock (but no hood unfortunately). I was also looking for the Ultron 28mm/2.0 but it was sold out.
The Nokton 35/40 Hood seems to be impossible to find in Japan at the moment. A vendor selling through wants more than 50% over list price - disgusting!
The handling is very nice but I have yet to see the results from the lens - so cant comment on that yet.

Update Oct. 02 - 2011
Cosina is distributing LH-6 hoods to the vendors these days. Two days ago I noticed that had a few at regular discounted price, yesterday I checked again, and they were all gone. Luckily I had placed an order with BIC Camera last week and they were able to deliver today. I hate to shoot without the protection of a hood.

I have shot 1,5 rolls with lens now. It is too little to make a qualified assessment, but I have noticed the following.
1. Focus shift - I have seen no signs of that.
2. Distortion - often mentioned in internet fora as a problem. If you really want to see it, you'll noticed a very slight barrel distortion if you shoot straight lines but when it is this little and if you really care, you probably should't shoot with a rangefinder.
3. Contrast/Color: Don't really se much difference between this and my Summicron 35/2 version 3 so far.
4. Flare resistence - excellent as reported many places. I shot several pictures with the sun barely outside the frame - with no problems.

Update Oct. 19 2011
5. The Out of Focus quality (bokeh) seems comparable to my Summicron.
