During the time I‘d spent in Paris earlier this year I meet PB at a Paris Photo Meet Up Group in the Sorbonne area in April. We chatted as you do and to cut a long story short, we firstly became shooting buddies, then friends.
On our first early morning shoot, along the photogenic Saint Martin Canal, I was offered the use of either the Otus 55 or 28, I opted for the 28 as I’m a wide guy. MF now that’s a new thing for me, it took only a few shots to get the hang of having to do that little bit of extra work before taking the shot.
PB told me to shoot it “wide open” and I did. The bokeh, the bokeh is something to behold. This is from someone who uses primes about 80% of the time and loves bokeh.
