    I have been rather jaded of late with my street stuff. I miss my GRD3 so much...feels like my right arm has been severed. Ba-da-bing...ba-da-booooooom. Along comes perky pugnacious and feisty Samyang 8mm fish coupled to my X-E1. Comfy with it straight away, unobtrusive.....point almost in opposite direction to target, completely invisible, great dof even at f/2.8 allowing fast shutter to counteract pd tremor. Better hit rate........

    This is my best (I think) from a 3 hour shoot this afternoon.

    cheers all. For some reason, the fog has gone from my brain, from my eyes.......I feel unshackled.....free! This little diamond has boosted me for sure, after the demise of my beloved GRD3.
