Yes it is. But I am a landscapist! Let me see what … keep on reading my adventures with this GREAT lens.
Mmh… big lens huge problem maybe!
Well NOT with the 135 mm Art:
and I had not finished to open it that, as my friend the foveon wizard Paul Monaghan said… yes the lens came FLOATING to me !
that is not a bad beginning

I was at first a little worried anyway: I use wideangles!
But, when I reached the last woodlands before the Hills of wine by night, the lens came into use:
Yes I was going the one of the most charming places ever, here in Italy, the LANGHE Hills,
land of the most sublime wines of the world.
And, being a plateau of hills with high mountains on the horizon, the views at dawn can be quite magical:
and as the first villages appear, let the fairytale begin:
I was determined to use ONLY the 135 mm art, and play with its large aperture (f1.8!). It is a very bright lens.
Icould capture the countyside and the village of Barolo while waking up from a red misty night.
Empty spaces often tell a lot more than overcrowded images....
the wineyards were waiting:
the winter wineyards are like a naif painting, seen from far, and like a labyrinth... from inside!
with the first sun, I arrived at Grinzane Cavour and its sourroundings, like oil-paintings from the past, thanks to the narrow depth of field and the very enjoyable soft bokeh of the 135 Art:
Castiglione Falletto and its circolar tower, made of bokeh!
But shall we get more close?
IN the wineyards, where the miracles take place: Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo….
With this lens it can be all - or nearly all - bokeh,
the attention is brought just to the exact point You decide to put in focus.
Here is the heavenly juice, a glass of Barolo, the king of them all (focus on the bubbles):
a magic land produces that red treasure:
and it is by the light of the full moon that the white truffles come into the radar of the wise dogs!
...and while the day is fading away, let me say I did like the SIGMA 135 Art, I liked it so much that I began talking to him at the end of the try...
or was it the wine effect!
bye, hills of the wine!
