    The photograph I couldn't take.

    I know but I simply couldn't get one.

    About 15 minutes ago I was faced with what would have been a really good photo.

    The sun was setting with a beautiful golden glow through the trees to the West and the full ( or one day off ) moon was climbing rapidly in the East and my immediate thoughts were -----

    Where is that 6mm fisheye when you need 220 degree views?

    Nikon, Fuji, Nikkor, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and too many other bits and pieces to list.

    I caluculated that but by the time I went far enough backwards with the widest lens I have ( 16mm ) I would have been 36.8 klm South and 232 metres deep in Bass Strait.

    But that golden glow through the trees would have been eminently capturable...

    Dunno if you could get a 16mm lens for the Nikkonos system .. otherwise look towards a aqua proof case for both camera and lens.

    Mug behind, and operating the camera be damned! ... it's the photo that's important.


    Actually disregard everything I just said, and change that too:

    Zooming with your feet should be made illegal! .. if God wanted us to zoom with out feet, he'd have given us all 1200-1700mm legs(or feet)!
