Fisheye Fun

I just acquired the Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood. It doesn’t quite give a full circular fisheye result, but it comes close on my new full frame Sony A99. Plus, it’s relatively inexpensive when compared to the Sigma. It yields some rather dramatic results and I think it will be a lot of fun to play with. The focus peaking feature of the A99 combined with the large live view screen allows for greater manual focus control.

Munich – Day 7 (Final Day)

It’s our last day in Munich. We head home in the morning. As much fun as this has been, I am ready to come home and so is Cynthia. Munich and Salzburg have both been great destinations and we have had such a good time, but we both look forward to not carrying around our heavy packs and having to put on and take off our heavy coats and scarves and hats.

BMW - Munich

We woke up this morning to temperatures well below freezing, but with lots of sunshine and blue skies so we decided to go to the BMW complex wich features a museum.

BMW Concept Vision Efficient Dynamics

I have to say, this museum was one of the highlights of the trip. It is well laid out and very engaging. It’s like history meets science meets modern art.

BMW Badges

The entire history of BMW was on display and it looked really cool seeing it presented in this venue.

Inside The BMW Museum

After touring the museum we made our way back to the hotel to recombobulate and then treated ourselves to a very nice, very leisurely lunch/dinner at a nearby Italian restaurant.

We spent the rest of the day just relaxing and packing up. Our flight is at 7:00 am so we’re getting up pretty early to get to the airport.
