Voigtlander Heliar 15mm F4.5 III Ultrawide is Favorite Landscape Lens

I’ve had this lens for a few years now and must admit it is one of the best landscape lenses that I have ever owned and had the pleasure of using. The quality of my images easily beat previous wide angles that I have utilized in the past.

If you want a high quality lens for professional landscape photography – I highly recommend the #Voigtlander #Heliar #15mm F4.5 III lens for #Sony #EMount. This is perhaps THEE BEST #wideangle lens that I have owned to date and have been using for a few years now.

I was visiting with Stephen Gandy today who is the largest distributors of #Cosina / Voigtlander lenses over at CameraQuest.com. He runs an invaluable resource on vintage lenses through his website as well. Check it out!

I will post a few sample images here that I’ve captured with this lens and will post more down the road.

Testing Landscapes with the Nikon Coolpix P900

I’ve been testing the capabilities of the Nikon Coolpix P900. So far the pictures are not looking too bad. I’ve had to send the one back that I had to see if I can find a factory brand-new copy. Anyways, it’s an impressive little camera with a mini-16 megapixel sensor. Having the world record long reach that it possesses at 2,000mm, there is nothing else to compete with it on the market. I highly recommend it as a superzoom. Heres a couple more test shots:

two of three of these images were shot on the long end at 357mm (2,000mm 35mm-film equivalent) to show that it is plenty sharp long end. The camera only produces jpegs with no raw capability and with rumors successor to this camera that can zoom to 3,000mm – I’m kind of disappointed they haven’t come out with it yet, because I would probably spring for it instead. I think I’ll be sticking with the P900 just for the reach alone for a few years.
