oh, and one more thing // quick note

before I go to bed, just figured I'd mention for those playing along at home:

I now have a shiney new 50mm 1.8 lens which I'm itching to try out. things this will help with: higher-end photos where clarity throughout the frame is needed (this lens generates less edge-distortion than my zoom lens) and faster shots in low-light situations (it can gather roughly double the light gathered by the zoom lens).

relevant appointments can now be made.

[edit]:addendum: I've done a lens comparison using various objects with fine detail and a range of colours. The 50mm is FAR superior to the 28-135 in terms of clarity and line distortion across the picture. The colour distortion of the 28-135 is not readilly noticable to my eye on this monitor. That edge-blur that the 28-135 has, though, is painful now that I'm seeing what a nice clear lens like the 50 can do! :) The fixed focal length is a bit annoying, but it's a reasonable trade-off.

    Okay, so not quite a year. More like 10.5 months since last update. At first, I thought that I should write about the whole lazor-eye thing right…

    I suppose I should make a mention of this. Round about this time tomorrow, I’ll be getting shot at by lasers. It sounds so sci-fi saying it that…

  • Decade?

    I suppose a more complete review of the decade will needs be done at some point (including the question of if 'the decade' is in fact over) but one…
