A visit to Minninglow | Nick Lukey

By | March 18, 2015

Last week I pulled the trigger on a new lens, one that I swore i wasn’t going to purchase. The Fuji 10-24mm arrived a few days ago, but due to other commitment,s and the weather I had not had a chance to shoot outdoors with it much. This lens will replace the legendary 14mm, one lens I thought i would never change. So what was it like out in the field?  Quite simply it’s outstanding. So with the promise of some spring sunshine, I took off from the gallery a little early and headed of to Minninglow near Parwich. It’s been a year since I last visited the place, and I am always happy to be back for a wander round the Bronze age site. It’s a great place to spend an hour or two, very easy access from the Tissington trail. So how does the 10-24mm compare to my much loved 14mm. Well I can say without a doubt that it seems to me to be pretty equal, maybe the 14mm edges it in micro contrast just. The 14mm has the aperture ring, and it’s a shame that its not present on the ultra wide. However the differences in extra viewing real estate is the real issue for me…….
