    I laughed out loud quite a few times here, Viktor. Brilliant stuff. I’ll have a think about my gift proposals, but in the mean time, I am going to watch the Fotoshop advert again 🙂

    • Thanks Martin 🙂
      Regarding your trip to Boulder CO, here is what I think…
      When I was in the mountains I very rarely used lenses wider than 35mm. So your RX1 will fit perfectly there. In addition I would pick FE 55/1.8, Tamron 90/2.8 Macro (for some close-ups but also for distant shots) and if you have space, even FD 200/4.
      Super wide lenses such as CV 15 or 20 would make sense if you have some dominant front plane subjects, but otherwise they will just make those mountains looking smaller. If you would ever look for wider shot than35mm, you can always stich it from few shots. Mountains won’t move.
      My prefered FL in mountains is usually 60-70mm, so that’s why I suggested Sony FE 55/1.8 too.
      Consider also some ND grade filters and some plain ND filters to use for long exposure in orther to make clouds motion effect (looks very nice and dynamic in landscape). You can take CV 15 just in case, but I guess you won’t use it much.
      However, the nost important part of my back pack would be tripod and remote controller with bulb function. You can also try time lapse with clouds, it looks great.
      Enjoy your trip,
      Viktor

        Thanks for your thoughts, as always 🙂
        I’ll take the RX1, 55/1,8, Tamron 90/2.8, and I definitely will have space for the 200/4 (it’s very small and light).
        I might well stitch RX1 shots rather than try the CV 20/3.5—I am not sure if there will be anything by the way of front-plane subjects, but I have nice ideas with lakes and trees and so-on. The only way to know, is to go!
        I have a 10-stop ND filter, and a CP filter. I’ll take both along with me. They both fit the RX1, and 55/1,8 (another reason I am glad Sony like 49mm threads).
        I have a tripod, but will consider looking for another. This one is a cheap tripod, with no ball head. I hardly ever take tripod-based photographs though…
        I have a cable release for RX1, and remote for the A7R. Never tried time lapse—depends how much time I end up having out there 🙂
