So…….I liked this lens more than I thought I would. The trick is to get it SUPER close to your subjects which makes lighting tricky. And, don’t even think about shooting it with your dome shade on. Of course, a dome with no shade is easy to ding. I gave mine a good scratch on this trip. Actually it was my buddy Kevin’s dome, so no worries, ‘eh.
I may have to buy this lens. Everything is so tripped out, I can only see me using it a fraction of the time, but I like the effect and know it will come in handy someday. The second pic is a self portrait. : ) Thanks to LensRentals.com for sending this guy out for the Channel Islands trip.
