What I am Doing Now (9 September 2022)

I’m back again in Uluwatu, Bali, but this time with my family. šŸ˜€ Unlike the last visit, I went to a few places of interest, but actually prefer just staying in the villa and chilling out. šŸ˜…

So, I went onto renting Nikon Z 14-30mm (f/4) and tested last weekend. Before renting, I was thinking that the design isn’t very nice and the external zoom is uncool, but when I attached the lens to my Z 6II, I actually felt quite good. šŸ˜…

When it comes to the sharpness, though, it turned out to be nothing impressive. To be honest, I see no difference compared to my Nikon 18-35mm (f/3.5-4.5) which was released in 2013.

So, I’ve decided to stay with 18-35mm for now. With no noticeable improvement in the sharpness, replacing all my 77mm filters (for 18-35mm) with 82mm ones for 14-30mm is hard to be justified, either.

I’m sure Nikon is going to release a few more Z mount ultra wide angle lenses in the near future, so I’ll just wait and test again when it’s out. I’m hoping that it’ll be 16-35mm or even 14-35mm with 77mm filter thread size so that I don’t have to replace all my UV and ND filters. šŸ˜…
