Landscape study using Letus Extreme and EX1

Very different from my last short as the barely features any people. I just wanted to show that these adaptors can be used beautifully for just capturing landscapes. It's not just about shallow DOF.

On my blog which is on my website.

Phil- I assume you are referring to "Dugeness". WOW Looks fantastic. The B&W really makes sense. Love the sliding pebbles shot. What are you finding to be your three top lenses? Also, should I sell my HD100 and move on to the EX1?

Phil,

Having had my Letus 35 for only 1 week now, I must say I love using a Nikon 35-70MM zoom Macro 2.8. I also have used a Nikon 50mm 1.4 and am looking to try something really long like a 135mm. Have you had the chance to use one that long? The one I have access to is a F4.

Love your work and am wondering about longer lenses.

Looks great Phil. Fantastic flow and images.
I don't see any vignetting in the shots. Does your EX1 has the vignette problem at all? Has the Letus fix the problem? I'm thinking of a EX1/SGPRO combo myslef but the vignette thing is concerning me.

even with the vignette issue you wouldn't see it with an a adpator. It was an issue shoting around 20mm using the stock lens. the vignette issue (solved by the way) was not near the end of the lens. The new ex1/ letus fix makes the letus the only adaptor for the ex1 to get perfect edge sharpness.

When you say it's fixed, you mean the new ones don't come with it anymore?
What's needed to get edge to edge sharpness with a 35mm adapter and what was changed in the Letus to reach that?

there was an alignment issue. Apparently new ones don't have that problem.

it's a new achromat for the letus and another piece of glass too. the results are amazing
