I went to probably the last car show in my area and fortunately it was just down the street from my house. I spotted this beetle not because I like them but I found it interesting because it has time period paint that just stood out and reminded me of when I was a small child in the 70s seeing these cars. The other ones at car shows have paint that looks too good and therefore ugly in my opinion. I talked to the owner who was a young guy and he was very happy I was taking a picture of it and wanted me to send it to him so I developed it first. This was taken with the Tamron 45 1.8 VC which is an great lens. I hope this medium format picture does it justice.
Time for the crown jewel of my lens collection. The Canon 35L . This lens was first made in 1998 and if you tally how much it would cost in todays money it would be over $2k which is super expensive. I have been eyeing this lens since 2005 because the photos it produces is amazing. I though the 85L would be the best lens I own its not, its this one. Where other lenses are sharp this lens has a look that makes the image.
Looking forward to getting some pictures from this beast. This is a Canon 24mm Tilt Shift lens. I got it for a bargain because it had a crack on a plastic part in front of the lens. I bought it from a whole sale reseller that discounted the lens as a result to just a little over $1k and decided to take a chance. It looks like some idiot tried to remove the plastic garnish with a lens spanner and cracked it. I bought the part for $10 from Canon which is a major savings from buying brand-new which would have been $2k. I could easily turn around and sell for more.
This thing has a learning curve which I intend to master.
