Leo Laksi’s Bangkok And Back

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

Part Two – Panasonic Lumix G1 with Voightlander Heliar 15mm f/4.5 lens

Here are more photos taken from Jatujak Market, the weekend market in Bangkok.  Again, I preset the Voightlander at f/4.5 so that everything from around .7 meters to infinity is in focus.  The lens is not razor sharp at this aperture, but it’s quick to use when you don’t have to think about focusing the lens.  Makes it easy to take a quick snapshot without having to mess around with the focus. However, remember that the G1 with its 2x crop factor makes this lens a 28mm, just right for that typical wide shot.  There is some barrel distortion but it’s minimal.
