Carl Zeiss 35mm (f/2), 50mm (f/2) and 85mm (f/1.4)

As promised, here is a review for a set of lens I’ve owned since 2011.

I didn’t buy them in one go mind you, it all started like all things when I had some spare cash from a recent an oversea business trip and decided to reward myself with something nice.

Always been a suckered for Carl Zeiss – the brand of lens that supposedly took magically photos when used, enchanting everything it was used on with its grace and elegance. I had never own any Zeiss prior to this and decided to pick up a focal length I would used often.

Bangkok International Motorshow (BIM) 2018

Yes I know I am way overdue for an article on my blog, but things haven’t been going as smoothly as I had hoped this year. I am now focus predominantly on Twitter so expect a lot less updates here.

Still that doesn’t mean I don’t have anything to post today, here are the photos from my recent trip to Bangkok back in March/April (end of the March to be exact).

Ever since Super GT left Malaysia for greener pastures (And less religious nutcases), my friends and I have instead ventured fourth from Sepang to Bangkok for our annual photographer meeting instead.

I have to say going to BIM is a lot more fun since the event is always held at IMPACT – an air-con stadium with smoking hot babes (Yes I know most of you are going to say they are all trannys and not real women since this is Bangkok).

So here are the photos, enjoy!

Bangkok Motorshow April 2015

The one thing I love about the motorshow in Bangkok is that because they aren’t rule by religious fanatics who go crazy at the sight of anything remotely sexy, the show is a wonderful showcase of cars and booth babes!

Gear Review: Nikkor AF-S ED 70-300mm VR

The Nikon 70-300mm VR AF-S

Not too long ago I owned a Sigma HSM 70-200mm f/2.8, it was fast, silent and light considering the level of quality though now there are cheaper lenses with comparable features.

But even with all of that it was a burden to carry around, heavy on the shoulders and terrible on my back. After many years of use I just couldn’t bare the burden anymore and decided it was time for a change. I sold the lens and use the proceeds to buy its smaller brother while pocketing the difference for a rainy day.

Here is my review of this lens and what I think of it so far.
