On 18/10/2017, I took a brief one-night stay in Singapore CBD to put my two new lenses to the test, the SONY FE 12-24mm f/4 G and the SONY FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM. The hotel is about 1km walking distance to the Merlion Park, where I spent most of the sunset and sunrise (the next day) there. Thought of sharing my experiences with you all. Here are the shots. Thank you.
I've used this lens for almost 2 months now and really love the sharpness it delivers, even wide open. The starburst is excellent. I will share further experiences with the lens. For now, here are some sample images from the lens.

Last week, upon recommendation from my buddy, Fakrul Jamil, I've decided to consolidate my lenses, trade in several lenses to opt for the new SONY FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM (SEL1635GM) lens. This will be my main landscape & milkyway lens for sure.
Let me share some of the benefits of this lens after using it for a few days now:
Here are some of the images taken using my SONY A7RII with the SEL1635GM.
Symphony Lake, KLCC, taken with SONY A7RII, 16mm, f/8.0, ISO 400, HDR from 9-exposures.
Symphony Lake, KLCC, taken with SONY A7RII at 16mm, f/8.0, ISO 400, HDR from 9 exposures. NiSi CPL + NiSi GND .9 Soft filters used.
Masjid Putra, taken with SONY A7RII at 16mm, f/8, 63.0 sec, ISO 100, Nisi CPL + NiSi ND1000 + Nisi GND .9 Soft filters used. Single exposure.
The lens performs very well indeed. I've got to wait for the milkyway season next year for some astrophotography. Good day!
On 10 September 2017, we've had our profile pictures taken by professional photographer, Mr. Azman Karib Ibrahim at his home studio. Great setup and all photos were shot with SONY A7RII with the SONY FE 100mm F2.8 STF GM OSS. Great lens for portrait!
Thank you, Mr. Azman!
This is the photography journey of Nur Ismail Photography where all the experiences from this year onwards will be shared with the audience. In collaboration with NiSi Malaysia, Leofoto, SONY Malaysia and Skylum Software. Thanks for viewing!
