Lens: Zeiss 24mm f1.8 e-mount
Camera: NEX-7, ISO100, f2.5, 1/4000, raw
One of the guys I’m working with here in Kodiak lended me the Zeiss 24mm f1.8 prime lens for the nex e-mount. So, today I left my 35mm skopar at the hotel and went for the first day of our Alaskan adventure with this wider little lens. You can find tons of reviews of what surely is the best e-mount lens currently out there, so I won’t even attempt to write another one. I’ll just say that I liked it a lot, the autofocus is fast, even if not 100% accurate in low light situations, the body is lightweight, even if not exactly a pancake lens in size, and that the optical quality is simply excellent, nothing less or different from what you would expect from a Zeiss.
About Alaska, it has a very peculiar mood, and I feel I’m still far from getting it. We spent the day organizing the expeditions that will keep us busy for the next four days, plus we accomplished the couple of photo-shoots we had planned for the day.
By tomorrow we’ll enter into the wild of Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge, and God only knows what is expecting us out there.
