    Sounds like a labor of love then. Are you going to keep your homemade tree for future photo shoots?

    Okay, Travelling Mikun.

    Remember my comment about Zeiss overkill?

    Yeah, ignore that. I'm a liar, and a hypocrite, and I'll admit it.

    I caved in and bought the Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Planar. Expensive, but damn! Is this a nice lens *drool* The photo quality is great, even with a cropped system. Kind of heavy though...

    My one main complaint, is that the aperture ring is located near the base of the lens. It's hard just to turn it.

    Hehe I told my friends about it, and some of my other photog friends chastised me for it. But they wont change my mind.

    The 55mm Sonnar is such a great lens *_* The color tone is beautiful, creates a nice contrast, smooth bokeh, and captures nice details, even at the lowest apertures. However, I dont like how it renders spectral lights.

    Even with my cropped sensor, the photos look beautiful. Definitely one of the first lenses I'll get when I upgrade to a full frame. But my dream lens is the 35mm f/2 Loxia. manual only.

    But as much as I love those lenses from the week that I got to try them out from a camera and lenses rental service, they have diminishing returns for the price. My SEL35 and 50mm can provide similar qualities, assuming I stop them at higher apertures.

    Not to mention, I don't want to get a high end lens when my primary subjects are people and figures. It seems a little overkill. Nice overkill, but still, you know? I hope I didnt sounds passive aggressive and backhanded towards you.

    Anyway, I hope you have a lovely 3 day weekend.

    Gwuh! Right, right, I did ask you. I remembered that 16mm zoom lens. I feel like an old man.

    55mm f/1.8? T-t-t-the Zeiss Sonnar? :O

    Travelling Miku, I think I've asked you this before, but what lenses do you own again?

    I'd love to get hold of the two Japanese home playsets but that seems quite expensive these days. Looks like I need to get crafty. :D

    LMAO! Bootleg is right! When I bought Miyo back in 2016, I was really disappointed because the finish on her skin and eyes just looked really amateurish.

    The reason why the LA Girls look like that it's because Dragoncraft is trying to replicate the Little Armory artstyle. Sadly, it's not working out... the skin is too shiny, the eyes aren't shiny enough, and the mouths need more definition. Also, the foot construction is really weird. The joint is too close to the ankle, which messes up their balance.

    If I were you? I'd buy Figma Rin Shibuya and head swap her lol Saber 2.0 on Miyo's body looks pretty cool too.

    Ah, so now I have an idea on where you live. Big Bear mountain is great to, but that one is really far.

    Also, most Figmas have good quality. Those two are exceptions due to the sculptor. I will say, those are one of the more unique ones.

    I know Fate is an annoying suggestion, but Saber 2.0 is a great Figma, even for a figure that came out 4 years ago. Fifa Genji sacrifices some looks for amazing articulation. Figma Zelda and Link are pretty awesome too! The SAO Figmas are fun to look at, and Figma Gwen is just HNNNNGG
