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.
Well to be honest, another roll I had not developed when I had returned from Jakarta. Sadly only one or two shots came out alright, everything else was crap – taken on a Sunday when Jakarta would close one of their main roads into the city converting it into one giant predasterian. It would start from 6am until 1pm.
Once the clock struck 1pm, traffic would be again open to cars and like migrating wilderbeast in Africa, cars would come streaming through the roads like nobody’s business especially for a Sunday afternoon.
Jakarta, Indonesia – With only 2 weeks before golive and handover, I decided to go sight seeing around Jakarta. I tried to find many reasons to like the city, but I have to say this, it was rather similar to Malaysia and didn’t really find anything interesting or worthwhile.
