The Camera Bag

I own two  camera bags.

I have owned the Lowepro Event Messenger 100* for close to 4 years . The bag won’t draw any attention to it and while you can clearly see that I have used it I still feel confident that it keeps my gear safe.

The bag is ideal if I want to travel light with two or three small primes and one medium sized lens. Right now I am working on reviews of the Canon FD 2.8/24, 2.8/35, 2.8/135 and Helios 2/58 and they fit into the bag well but I need to carry additional protection for one lens because I have two lenses in the same department.

Zeiss Milvus Distagon 1.4/50 – Review

DSC09857Classic 50mm lenses are rather small, affordable and not very good wide open. The new Zeiss Milvus 1.4/50 is very big, very expensive and very good from f/1.4.

For this review I used the Milvus on my Sony a7.

All images in this review are processed from raw unless I mention otherwise. I did nothing fancy, just a little contrast and some sharpening.
