berlin moabit, 2017
(somehow the picture and the text seem to have disappeared during the day… i don’t know how this is possible at all but i just put it in again… )
we had quite low temperatures in berlin recently. for more than three weeks we had around -12°C. river spree was just full of ice cakes but in rummelsburger bucht, a dead arm of the spree, it was safe to step on the ice. the area is about 350 meters wide and 1.5 km long so one can take a nice walk where one normally does not. including a walk around ships or straight to an island…
some of the pictures have been taken with the tiny panasonic 14mm pancake lens which i got for a really good price from ebay (uk) recently. i am quite happy with this little lens. it’s not really comparable with the 20mm in terms of in-your-face-sharpness and obviously not as handy when it comes to lowish light but the wide angle makes up for this in some situations and the autofocus on my e-pl1 is indeed a bit faster than the 20mm but not as much as i had hoped from other reviews.
