    Thanks Pete, i’ll take you up on that! Can you upload some audio pieces? Want to test that all works properly for the user. Audio works best with cover images.

    Nice vid. I’m not a fan of that sigma 30mm…go for the 35mm Zeiss Distagon!

    Why are you not a fan of the Sigma?

    For stills I found it just a bit too slow to focus, for vid the focus wheel wasn’t very smooth and worse than canon lenses for finding focus within the whole continuous focus thing. Great high-speed lens for price though I guess! Oh, the external finish of the lens seem to get tatty pretty quick too. I haven’t used one for about a year though, so maybe I’m being too harsh.
