Free wallpaper: Failure is not an option

Failure is not an option

I was looking for the origin of the quote “Failure is not an option.”. You find some interesting sources. I still do not know if the source I found is the right one.

I really love the spirit in this quote. And the fact that the origin lies within someone from the Apollo 13 project makes it even more interesting.

Quick review of the Sigma 30mm 1:2.8 EX DN for Sony Nex E-Mount

When I first took it out of the packaging I thought it was broken. But the lens element is not fixed if the lens is not “on”, aperture is closed.

Size is smaller than the 18-55 kit lens, I would say it is as if someone cut the kit lens between zoom and focus ring. Build quality is high and solid plastics. It feels good and I like the smooth focus ring. I tried some shots, could not find any odd things. I doscovered some very soft magenta streaks in very high dynamic regions when pixelpeeping. Concerning the quality I would say that this is a no-brainer for Euro 199,-.

For those of you who like pixelpeeping I have some testshots in f/2.8, f/4 and f/8 at my ge.tt acount, for all the others: A wallpaper in Full-HD.
