    well, you asked him if he got the marble out and his response was that with that drink he had no clue how to do it. So I told him.

    Bonus points to the person who can figure out how I got this effect (Nothing to do with the long exposure):

    Well it has plenty of issues but I love it. It's not as flexible (or fast ) as my old kit from the film days, but at least it feels like real photography again. It's not easy to get good results, shots must be planned, there is so much waiting for processing that its best to get it right the first time.

    The grip is actually better then I expected. Good weight, sort of reminds me of an old 35mm pentax my dad owned when I was a kid. It's actually confortable with the extra lens hood and a couple diopters attached.

    The 16.6mm lens is a bit weird to get used to. Auto focus is nearly useless for anything but still shots, and it's 100% blind in low light. The LCD quality is far from great. Metering modes seem accurate, white balance not so much.

    As far as image quality, I don't think I seen all the potential out of it yet. I didn't take that many shots, most of them in very poor light, I still need to do some more testing with proper lights and outdoors. But overall I have to say that I am impressed with the detail it can produce even with such low lights. The only problems I noticed so far was a bit of chromatic aberration and some flaring in a few pics.

    Well that and..maybe I am nuts, but I see a lot of noise reduction even at low ISO. I am not even sure if I should be calling it noise reduction or not, but blurry/out of focus areas sometimes seem to have lots of it.

    But yeah, I am having a good time with it. If all goes well, tomorrow I will be picking up the halogen lights that I found last week and will be able to do some better tests.

    Thanks, Nate. Yeah, I don't normally do much with vignetting, but didn't mind this version.
