    The 11-23 is the current favourite, though the 23/2 is a lovely piece of glass.

    Good afternoon everyone.
    As this situation continues to upset anything and everything about "normal" life, I just thought that it might be an idea to post an update on the current thinking re the Challenge this year.
    October seems a long way off, but it is still unclear where the world will be by then, especially with regards to flights, hotels, restaurants and cafes etc. Indeed, visitors might still not be allowed into the country at all, or might still need quarantining when they get back! Who knows? (Not me).
    I think that it would be sensible to take stock at the end of June. Things might be a little bit clearer by then, either way and a decision to proceed or defer for 12 months can be made then.
    We have already booked flights, accommodation and car hire, some of which can be cancelled, but maybe some can't.
    I would therefore suggest that if you are planning to join the Challenge (and why wouldn't you?) and have not already booked flights, it might be sensible to wait until the end of June before doing so.
    I don't want anyone to be out of pocket!
    Thanks, and "Stay Home. Stay Safe"

    cbretteville reacted to SonomaBear in The Sigma 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary - SL users should take a look   
    It is my walk-around lens and mostly shot wide open.  "Soft" is not a term I would use to describe it wide open.  Very acceptable and produces saleable images wide open.  But it does get even better by f4.0
     
    I aso shoot this lens manually often - love an aperture ring and smooth manual focus.  Poor man's M Summicron for the L mount?
