Real winter this year at Lake Ontario.
Canon 5D Mark III, 70-200 f/2.8 II
Nikon Df w/ 85mm 1.8G @ 2.8
Between the polar vortexes and the frost quakes, came a brief relief of milder air. Taking advantage of the situation, I hit the streets of Toronto with my Nikon Df in hand. Content for our street style blog (found here) was very low so I was hoping to find a few smiling faces for the blog and do a little non-interactive street photography as well. Very pleased with the Df. I have it configured perfectly now using the back focus button and leaving the camera in continuous focus mode. One touch engages focus and if the subject is moving, I hold down the button for continuous focus. Lens used: Sigma 35mm 1.4, Nikon 50mm 1.8G, Nikon 85mm 1.8G. All of lenses are very good and lightweight, with possibly the except of the Sigma, which is a bit on the heavy side at 600+ grams.
Toronto and most of southern Ontario gets covered in ice. Tree branches snap and power lines go down. Rather than sit in the house with no heat or hydro, we decide to grab our cameras and head outside. All of the photos in this set were taken with the Nikon Df, Sigma 35mm 1.4 and the Nikon 85mm 1/8G. The skies were gray so finding rich deep colours was difficult until after sunset when the Df really shines in low light.
