Like any good father should, I have begun exposing my son to the world of the galaxy far, far away. Yesterday, we went to the library to look for Star Wars books so I can read them for his bedtime stories. There are actually some nicely done comics that captured the essence of the stories, which allowed him to just look at the pictures on his own, while I snapped some shots. The almost dark ambiance of the library made it a little challenging for the 90mm Elmarit-M, so I had to turn up the ISO to 1250. Perhaps a 90mm Summicron is in my future, but I think it's a bit more bulky... in fact, I was rather thinking about the 90mm Macro-Elmar which has a maximum aperture of f/4. Size and speed are always a trade-off... but so far the Elmarit seems to be a good balance. Here are a few more shots:
