    Default As the ice melts off the Chena

    North Pole this afternoon. The first one was earlier, and the second later in the afternoon as the sun rays turned gold in color. Rebel XT, Tokina 12-24mm, and Hoya CPL.

    Very nice lenses of outstanding quality. I believe that Tokina now has one of 10-16mm that will probably be a good seller, too. All their lenses are well built, and the price is fair. I have heard that these lenses are a Tonina/Pentax brand.

    The front element does not move, which is perfect for using filters. Also, the Auto/Manual focus engagement is a ring near the front that you can move forward for AF or backward for M, in a very smooth and positive fashion. It comes with a very nice hood that is easy to install and remove, and just as smooth as the focus ring.

    Default The ice is just about gone

    There is still some ice on the slough to the right, but the Chean is open now.
