I went for a wander today down a "public footpath" which I hadn't been down for a couple of years and was amazed by how much had changed! My "kit" for the day consisted of a Sigma 18mm "Zen" prime, Sigma 50mm F1.4 prime, Tamron 90mm macro and Sony Reflex 500mm mirror.
Neither the 18mm Zen or the mirror were used today.
Anyway, I tried taking a couple of snaps of the "natural enclosed pathway. The trees and high hawthorn hedges have reached a point when they form a tunnel which makes an interesting shot. However the 50mm lens performs poorly at this, the images can explain this better than I can. Perhaps its a subject better covered with the manual focus or another lens altogether?
The nearest branches and floor covering is pretty sharp on my screen but the rest is out of focus. This might be useful for other image types but I was hoping it would all be sharp. Perhaps this is the wrong scene for a prime lens? Any suggestions as to what I should be using in this case? Weather permitting, another attempt can be made tomorrow!
