The X1D and the 21mm f/4 should arrive Wednesday, but the 120mm is here now. It’s a big lens and very much in the XCD lens-line style. The lens looks even larger with the lens hood attached—but the depth of the hood bodes well for being extremely good at eliminating extraneous light, a big plus when shooting towards the sun and similar.

Where to shoot?
It’s smoky to the north and smoky to the east, and maybe to the south too, but nothing of interest that way. Heck it’s smoky all the way to Salt Lake City.
I am hoping the horrific wildfires will have abated enough so that I need not drive way down to Lone Pine instead of the Eastern Sierra near Yosemite area in order to get to a smoke-free area. While it looks like the Ferguson Fire is just about contained, it is going to continue to make a big smelly smoky mess for some time.
I can’t take the risk of having my lungs impacted again (took 2+ weeks to clear them), so I may end up shooting down near Lone Pine—much farther to go, but smoke is intolerable. See the Yosemite area air quality report.
