    I had suddenly a wish to use my Angenieux 70-210 zoom on a digital camera. This lens is in Canon FD mount, and today was the first time in which it is used on a digital camera. The Angenieux lens is (supposedly) a lens with high light transmission. I love its sharpness and it colors. I drove with Dana and Lina to Pensacola Beach, and hardly anyone was there, so we enjoyed the beach alone. There was very bright sunshine, and with the sugar white sand, I was challenged to get well exposed images at shutter speed 1/4000 and ISO 100 without overexposing the images. I will post the (many) images on my smugmug account, but here are a few samples.

    It was quite difficult to focus well on the girls as they moved around so quickly, having a great time creating "zones" with their feet in the white sand. The sunlight was extremely bright, and I had a hard time finding the focus point for a perspective of 420mm with the lens wide open since I have not yet managed to close down the aperture.

    Beautiful portraits of the girls on the beach.

    I'm ready for the beach. Snow on the way- not the same!

    Thank you, Brian.We have no snow this year in Pensacola. I prefer it this way. Each day I need to ask my daughters to wear a sweater or at least take one with them in the car, as they insist that with so much sunshine, it feels warm.

    I will just post images directly from the camera, without any PS.

    I am having such a good time with using this awesome lens. Having a lens with reach 420mm, and with camera that has Image Stabilization and auto exposure in a modern (inexpensive) and small digital camera opens up many opportunities for photography adventures.
