Congrat’s on finally getting a good 28! Too bad you had to wait so long to get one.
We’re sitting in Carmel CA after a 2 day drive from Tucson, going to meet with good friend and fellow LL member Ken Doo to shot the local landscape of Big Sur and surrounding areas – huge difference from the desert areas that we normally hang out at! First thing I noticed is there’s a lot more people here.
Anyway please show us some of that beautiful countryside of NZ haven’t been there in close to 20 years.
Great to hear from you. I have never been to the USA but it is a dream of mine to drive from LA up the east coast to Seattle in a convertible Ford Mustang.
Actually I haven't been past the Equator.
The replacement Mamiya 28mm lens is great but one thing I've noticed is the focusing seems to be very critical and I get a sharper image when I manually focus.
I am hoping the new Mamiya/Phase camera body will have a improved auto focusing system.
I have a car shot for Lexus this week to do on location around Auckland and in the central North Island and then back to my car studio to do the interiors so the new 28mm is going to get a good workout.
Well Don as it have been 20 years since you were down under in New Zealand, if you decide to come down please feel free to contact me if you are in Auckland as it would be great to meet.
