Today, I went to see two shows at the Minneapolis Art Institute, Edo Pop (Japanese prints and animation) and Bonjour Japon (European posters inspired by Japan). Both shows were quite interesting, I’d like to go back to see the other exhibitions for which I ran out of time. Besides the art, the mesuem attracts rather interesting people as well.
I now have a new travel lens, 24-70/2.8. One reason why I am not so worried about losing a stop of light from 35/2 and 85/1.8 is that 5D2 AF isn’t always perfect wide open (and slight subject movement becomes a big problem also). I am sure that the optically aligned viewing and focusing systems are about to be replaced with video viewfinders precesely because they make closed feedback loops possible for the precision required by fast lenses.
