    Went to the Birmingham Colour Run today, was very fun I don't think my crappy bridge camera will recover from the paint intake, but got some nice shots wading into the pink mist and got very pink myself :ahee: I quite like this photo that I took at the finishing line where it was safe to use DSLRs.

    Here's a photo-project I did following the length of the A470 from the South coast of Wales right up to the North coast. You can have a peak at the rest of my website too, mainly photos of my band and the project I did on my Father.

    Aww shucks! The road stuff was for my final year at uni doing Photojournalism so it needed to be a fairly hefty body of work. It was all shot on 6x7 medium format negative film - none of this digital rubbish!

    It shows in the colour quality of the architectural photos, particularly.

    Couple of shots from Clacton on Sea airshow a couple of weeks ago. I have more to go through of the Lancasters and Typhoon, but that is for another night.

    Sigma 18-35mm 1.8. I wanted to condense my lens set down to 3 (ultra wide, standard zoom and telephoto) while still having something with a wide aperture, so I sold off my primes and 18-50, along with some other tech I needed to clear out, and used a chunk to buy the Sigma to be my sole walkaround lens :yep:

    How is it? I've been lusting after that for a while now, but it isn't wide enough for me. The new EF-S 24mm pancake is going to be very tough to resist if certain retailers can price it low enough.

    Only got it today, but it's as lustworthy as I was hoping :teeth: it's an absolute tank of a lens and my 100D feels comically small on the end of it (may have a chance to move up to a 70D for not much more money though, which felt better balanced when I tried it), but the weight is fine for me. The 18-35mm range is perfect for me as a general purpose lens, I rarely shoot in the 50mm range, and 1.8 throughout the range stops me needing an extra prime. Haven't had a chance to go out and properly shoot with it yet but the pics it's produced of my cat look great so far :ahee:

    Yeah if the 24mm is anything like the 40mm pancake then it's going to be awesome as an inexpensive prime, the day I got to compare it to my nifty fifty I bought one on the spot.

    Ha, I bet that looks brilliant on a 100D I used to think 18 was more than wide enough, then got a 12-24, oh the wideness of it!

    A 70D would be a very good upgrade in my opinion. I'm trying to tell myself that my 7D is more than good enough and that the new autofocus system and ISO performance of the mk2 isn't necessary...

    The 24mm is actually a focal length a would use so it's likely to be my first prime, if the price is right...

    Just a tad :ahee:

    Yeah lens number one in my trio is a 11-16 2.8, really love it!

    A 70D would be a very good upgrade in my opinion.
    Yeah I'm not expecting a world of difference in terms of image quality (although any bump to dynamic range wouldn't go amiss), but the list of features I like the sound of grows every time I look at it- better autofocus, top LCD plate, electronic level, faster continuous shooting, articulating screen, WiFi (to a lesser extent), so many little things that add up to a very tempting package!

    I'm trying to tell myself that my 7D is more than good enough and that the new autofocus system and ISO performance of the mk2 isn't necessary...
    It does look verrry tempting! Would like some flavour of 7D myself but between selling my 100D and getting John Lewis discount the 70D shouldn't cost me much more than the remaining profit from my last batch of eBay sales. Some of the 70D's more consumer oriented features like the articulating screen are pretty tempting too.

    The 24mm is actually a focal length a would use so it's likely to be my first prime, if the price is right...
    With any luck once stock starts making its way to bigger sellers the price will come more in line with the US price and the 40mm.

    Certainly not my best, but one of the good recent ones . Excuse the bright thingy in the top left corner, the dudes at Boots did a mistake when scanning my film.
