Thru the Jura Mountains...

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by JPS, May 25, 2005.

  1. Yesterday i had to go over the Jura montains (80 Km. north of Geneva) to meet with a sub-contractor, (you know, these well-known swiss watchmakers who makes watches during the long cold winter evenings :wink: !), so as the day was very sunny and warmish, i stopped on my way, just at the top of the mountains (about 1500 m. / 3500 ft.) and snapped a few shots !

  2. Nice images JP would love to be able to take the same ride through the mountains.

    How do you like your Sigma 12-24...I have one. and enjoy it for the most part. Sometimes the AF takes a long time so I lean towards manually focussing. Otherwise it gives a nice perspective on landscapes.

  3. Hi Bohdan !
    I LOVE my 12-24 !!! I reckon it's not exactly as sharp as a -good- Nikkor 12-24 could be, but it hasn't got any -or almost- CA, the distortions are near to zero, and..... it's more than 30% cheaper !

    As for AF, i allways use it in manual and at minimum f/8, so i havent got any problem of focussing :wink: ...
  4. Good to hear...JP....I bought mine after reading comparative reviews that gave the positive to Sigma for CA; comparable sharpness: no distortions and the fact that it can be used on my larger format Nikon.. The downside of course is that it doesn't lend to a filter on the front due to its "popey" lens. So no polarizer .

    Thanks for the memories - I used to live in Geneva in the late 70's and often drove through the mountains on my way to wherever. Lovely pictures.
