The need for speed . . .

Out with the R5 again this afternoon, I encountered some foul weather. When it had somewhat passed, low light left me in five-digit ISO for the short period of shooting time I had left. Interestingly, DPP Express does a really poor job managing noise.

When AF ran past the subject a few times, that and the noise left me thinking that a moderately fast manual focus lens might be a worthwhile addition to the arsenal. But anything of quality means weight. With the 280mm f/4 APO-Telyt-R being a possibility, I wonder if I’d actually carry it.

On a totally unrelated note, passing through Em Quartier today I noticed that Leitz Cafe is no more, replaced by some instagrammable, expensive-looking snackery. It left me thinking about whether diversifying a brand known mostly for one thing is really a good idea. I think not. If it were, then surely Rolex would have turned out a camera by now . . .
