Storm-damage.

That is a scary collapse of the brick facade!

A freak accident, and good job of reporting it from you, with the images you posted. Scary stuff.
Thanks Carl.

It's a miracle nobody got hurt. Normally the street is very busy, especially on working days, but the accident happened on Saturday.

That is a scary collapse of the brick facade!
Indeed.

And with those looks I did, as WEX have it in stock again also sporting a £60 discount. Knickers there’s one wheeling soon to my front door! Again the dreaded GAS strikes again!
I blame Rose’s eyes she’s  the absolute epitome of the Devil in disguise(not) she’s gorgeous of course!  :-*

2020 will be an expensive year for you; the Z70-200/2.8S will arrive soon, and  Z14-24/2.8S and Z 50/1.2S are planned for this year too  ;D 8)

And the very convenient 24-200mm f4-6.3 lens, designed especially for river cruise tourists like Mike. The Lorelei siren is calling you Mike ...

Been raining heavily and I've been busy, finally had the opportunity to play with the 50S but it's like 1am already. Hope I get time to go out afterwork tomo... I mean today.

I like this lens. Very sharp even wide open and the confusion balls look pleasing. Bad photo, plan to visit Sydney Tower for some nice aerials.

Luc, it’s on my “for consideration” list! But I’m not impressed by the Aperture range, It should have been f4 throughout the range. f6.3 is in my eyes just not good enough and will limit its usefulness at the long end. A few years  ago I owned F mount 24-120 which was all f4, shame!

(Both focus stacked, F5.6, flash was used)

Loving the Z6 50S combo. If the D8x0 line equivalent, the Z8 or something to match up with Sony's a7r4 exists, this lens will be a killer. You can see huge moire patterns on the wafer shot, the 24MP sensor is being out-resolved.
I'm going to patiently wait for the 50/1.2S... probably later this year/earlier next year. According to the roadmap, it would be this year, but the "C word" exists.

Wow, nice shots! Is the grid under the wafer 1cm x 1cm? I'm wondering about the scale.

This is the first time I've seen color coded ball drivers, what a good idea, and I like that shot too.

Omelette! Too bad the lighting makes it look not as appetising.

Yeah the grid is 10x10mm.
The die size of the wafer is 20x20mm.
Larger patches are 2x2mm

Luc, I had a good look at some video reports and the specs, and at the moment I think I would rather put the money toward a Nikkor 300mm f4 PF! I used to own one once and now of course I regret selling it! When I sell some of the old mu4/3s gear, I’m sure an attack of GAS will strike.  ::)
The call of the riverside statue of the Lorelei seems to disappear into the backdrop, sadly!

Eddie, the Z 70-200mm will not appear in Mike Gs arsenal, too expensive, too heavy, see above post re the 300mm f4 PF!
