I went out to the Torrey Pines Gliderport today to see what it was like, since I'd never been out there. I used it as an opportunity to set up the Tripod and take a few pictures with the new camera gear I've acquired since the last time I went shooting: a Circular Polarizing filter for my wide angle 10-22mm lens, and the new 17-85mm lens. Even though I don't have the filters for the new lens, I thought I'd take it out and see what kind of pictures it takes. Clicky for the gallery:
The images in the gallery are a random sample of my different lenses: I used the 10-22, 17-85, and the 28-135. The 10-22 had the CP-L filter on it the whole time (except where noted) and the 28-135 was rocking the usual UV Haze filter. You'll notice from looking at the images that were taken with the 17-85 vs. the 28-135 that even the UV haze filter cleans things up substantially outdoors.
It looks like I had a small speck of some kind of dust on the camera sensor near the bottom right corner, that is consistently in the same place regardless of which lens or focal length I was using.
