My Monday

The Question and The Right Answer found me on location before the sun was up. Many hours latter I'm wiring up Paul Ryan and getting levels for a live remote interview. All went well, life is good.

So its stuff like this that has taken me away from doing some of the projects and reviews I've been wanting to do. That said, know I'm up to 3 Sennheiser G3 systems and going for #4 shortly. While I do notice some HF loss with them ( MINOR )  their over all performance continues to make me happy - long battery life, reliable drop out free operation, frequency scanning, small size. I have some new stuff related to them coming soon.

Also on my radar is taking the Meyer Optik 50 1.8 I picked up for $20 out for  a test shoot with the OM 50 1.4. Even just premilnary tests show they are very different lenses with different qualities. The Meyer Optik makes some very tasty flares like a wide angle, but under control. Stay tuned for that. 

Meanwhile the Rokinon 35 1.4 is coming back from warranty repair over the next few days, shaking bits gone. I'm going to update my review on it. 

Last I have a very busy September coming up with a lot of shooting going on. Its going to be testing out some new glass as I go ! Its going to be fun.
