I have just returned from a weeks trip to Devon. A week of good weather and beautiful light resulted in a large number of images I'm very pleased with.

At the start of the week I began shooting with the Nikons, and at the end I was shooting with the Leicas finally ending up with just the M9 and Zeiss 50mm f/2 T* Planar.

I also shot a lot of video, using predominantly the D5100 and 16-85mm zoom. 

However I've returned home to find problems with my internet connection and until BT get round to sorting that out its too slow to upload to YouTube or Vimeo. 

The week was somewhat spoiled by my back going into spasm on the journey down and a somewhat noisy cough, courtesy of my sister-in-law!! However despite these "distractions" it was a useful week for picture-taking though somewhat harder (and more painful) work than usual due to my mobility problems.

I'll go into more detail on how each camera and lens performed in later posts.
