Waited for a car to drive past and light up these flowers.
Another example showing macro capability at wide focal lengths. You would be able to get a close up shot of the insect/subject as well as create an environment around it using a wider view of the background. This would work nicely in a field of poppies for example.
Since this lens has a significant crop factor (around 2x), the photos on the 35mm end work out as 60-70mm. While not being wide-angle macro, they’re different enough from the 100mm to be interesting to try.
The Miranda also has a slight circular distortion when shot against a bokeh background.
Not so much a street shot as an on-the-move portrait. This lens has a rapid autofocus which gave me a lot of time to compose the shot. Shallow depth of field also gives very strong bokeh in the background.
An example of portraiture, albeit animal, using the 100mm lens. The low contrast gives a lot of scope when battling bright backgrounds and dark subjects. Here I managed to recover detail from the shadows as well as retain colour of the blurred garden through the window.
The very large F2.8 aperture also lets me have a strong separation of the subject and background even though they are close to one another – no more than 40cm.
