15th September 2007 – the KL Photo Fest in Berjaya Times Square, with a model shoot session where one would have to fight for space to shoot models.
Obviously not a problem for this dude with a Canon 500mm F4L IS USM lens.
Suzanne Lee spotted!
The new Tamron 70-200mm F2.8 Macro, yet to be released. Its weight is well-balanced towards the back and it feels smaller than other 70-200mm F2.8 zooms.
Regardless, I walked around with the Minolta 70-210mm F4 beercan lens. It makes pretty liquid color bokeh like this (note the pleasant green tinge on out-of-focus borders.)
And yes, us camera geeks walked around with cameras slung around our necks, checking each other’s lenses out, identifying them in our head as we go. Kinda like how girls can tell where a girl’s top was bought from.
Sure you don’t want one of these? The Tamron 200-500mm F5-6.3, which looks like a rocket launcher when extended. Interestingly, it’s a push-pull from the front, but also has a zoom ring; either method will zoom the lens. Of course, it is way more expensive than the discontinued Tamron 200-400mm F5.6 I have. I do appreciate the tripod mount which extends out so you can put your hand in it and hold it as a video camera.
Okay, maybe I want one of these.
Digiscoping with a Ricoh. The uncle cleverly set it upon a rooftop pool somewhere in the city.
(Off sequence is this guy on an escalator. Noise intentional from oversharpening.)
So yes you get the pattern? Alternating chicks and geeking out.
