Elly & Obert - Samyang 85mm F1.4 Field-Test

July 31st, 2011 | Bob Tahar

The is a pre-wed photo shoot of Elly & Obert at Perdana Lake Garden.

I take the opportunity to do a field test of my newly acquired Samyang 85mm F1.4 (Non AE) lens. This is a full manual lens. Similar to my existing Samyang 8mm fisheye, Nikon D7000 Non CPU lens function helps the camera to operate under auto exposure. At F1.4, the D.O.F is very shallow, thanks to the Nikon D7000 new focus guide confirmation in the viewfinder (ala Rangefinder camera)… manual focusing is a breeze. I got 90% success rate on accurate focus.

This is a great lens, the built & the glass is at par with Nikkor equivalent… the lens hood is a bit flimsy. The bokeh is creamy, very sharp at wide open… exhibit some CA on the subject with very bright background. At 1/4th of the Nikkor 85mm F1.4 G price.. it give the Nikkor owners a run for their money.

All images captured with Nikon D7000 + Samyang 85mm + Tokina 11-16mm (on the last 2 pics).

Pasar Pagi Pekan Sehari - Temerloh

July 24th, 2011 | Bob Tahar

Photo outing to Pasar Pagi Temerloh with Temerloh Photographers. One of the longest Pasar Pagi in Malaysia that I’ve been to. Located near the Temerloh Stadium, stretching along the Pahang River of The Temerloh Esplanade.

The main attraction is the Pahang’s fresh water fishes… very expensive. Wild Patin Muncung RM95 per kg.

Images taken with Nikon D7000 + Samyang 8mm Fisheye & Nikkor 70-300vr.

This is my office trip to Phuket from 15 July to 18 July 2011.

We stayed at Royal Paradise, Patong. Great location… in the heart of Patong Town, 10 minute walking to Patong Beach, 5 minute to Bangla Street, 20 minute to Hard Rock Cafe.

Phuket is an expensive place… doubles of everything compare to Bangkok. Great place to visit with friends.

Images captured with Olympus Pen E-PL1.
