Beautiful start of March, Akira.  I like the colours and the graduation in it.  Striking atmosphere.

John, thank you for your kind comments.  Sigma f1.4 lenses rock, don't they?   :D

That looks like May-June in our region, Jack  ;)

Whether through luck, circumstance or an instinctual need to keep moving West, my ancestors piled up along the west side of the continent and the weather is fine in February.

However, the green grass is brown by June or July. 

One year I visited Sweden at midsummer. It was amazing. Each place has its moments.

Yes, at least the 'ART' series.  :)  And the 20mm version is unique.

Yes, I like the 20/1.4.   The Sigma Art 20/1.4  is the only 20mm with f/1.4 around.  The quality of the lens is better than previous lenses I have used from Sigma.   

It takes some time to get used to a f/1.4 in the wide 20mm range, as you collect a lot of light. I previously only worked with f/2.8  or much slower in that region.

I would like to know how the 20/1,4 would compare with the Nikkor 20/1.8, strangly enough I never saw a good comparision.

I own the 1.8/20G Nikkor and sold my 1.4/24G, because I Did not use it anymore. Great lens and much less heavy and bulky than the Sigma.

I really like to see the comparsion to the Sigma too

Slowly, unpacking continues. A long way before completion though.

My hands itching for lack of camera, I took today the d5300 ir -unknown filter?- with the 105mm 1.4 I didn´t get as far as the front door so this is inside the patio. That lens can´t do anything wrong...

Bjorn, you have my sympathies, I would hate to move now!
