Zeiss Loxia 50mm — Still my favourite

The Loxia 50mm f/2.0 continues to be one of my all-time favourite lenses. I have to admit, however, that when things are moving a bit quicker, then the Sony/Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 is the better choice.

Work carried me out to North Stradbroke Island for the day, but I only had a few minutes to grab a few personal shots. All of these are from the bay side of the Island. The other side is the open ocean side. It has gorgeous beaches and features the transit of the whales when they move to and from their Arctic waters.

It was a little cooler than it looks. It's winter on this side of the world, but Brisbane is semi-tropical, so a jacket was enough.
