Looking good!! I am lusting after that lens. So, I will be closely watching your photos. Hopefully I'll have one before the end of the year.
Thanks, Terri, I went almost all in with Z lenses over the quarantine summer - 35 1.8, 50 1.8 and this (besides the 14-30 and 24-200 zooms 😍). Hope to show you good examples. BTW, this doesn't close focus as the other primes = 2.6 ft. 35 is .6 ft. and 50 is about 1.5 ft.

It is Saturday night. The evening is gorgeous. Going to grill tenderloins. I have been keeping some red a little too long. When quarantine started, I began breaking out bottles of cab as old as 1997. Let me tell you, some don't make it that long!

Anyway cheers to the Cafe and wine drinkers. I have to let this decant a bit before I report back on tasting.

I learned about the fantastic layers that the best wines display from a 1992. single vinyard Pinot from Stag’s Leap. This photo brings back very fond memories. I think we were watching Star Trek while drinking it with two friends.

They should put this wine up against French Pinots like batard Montrechet or Romanee Conti... Oh wait. *

* actually it was a different SL wine, a cab, that beat France on their own terms. That means we pay a lot more for Napa wine than you would expect.
