    This was taken using the zenitar 16mm with kodak gold 400 pushed to 800 (that's why so grainy) atop Mt Kinabalu.

    Can't see your photo.

    BTW, which camera body and lenses did you carry to Mt. Kinabalu? b'cos I'm going there next year.

    Dunno if this will work.

    Anywayz I brought my EOS 66 with it's 28-80 kit lens and the 16mm zenitar FE. Brought only the FE to the summit cos there's really nothing to take on the way up as it was 3am in the morning and I was hit with foggy/wet weather except during the sunrise at the summit. good idea to bring a monopod to use as a walking stick and to stabilise shots as I realised I was breathing quite hard while hiking and can't take shots hand-held.

    Same here, our group will climb at 2am in the morning. Have intention to carry LED tourch light b'cos the battery life can outlast the conventional tourch light. Anybody in your group used LED tourch light for the trip?

    BTW, can't see the photos, got this error.

    good shot

    ARgH! Perhaps you could go to dan777-2.blogspot.com directly. Maybe blogspot doesn't allow for linking or wad, sorry bout that.

    LED? Guess that'll be a good idea, but do take note that it's MUCH MUCH better to have a headlamp/headband or some way you can secure the torch without holding on to it cos you may have to use your hands quite alot. For me, I left my torch off for most of the time cos I guess I could see well enough in the dark. Relying on too much torch light actually causes you to be blind to the rest of the unilluminated area and that's pretty dangerous when you reach the steep part where there's quite alot of rope to hold on to.

    Yup, me too. The 1st pic gives me a dome days feeling.

    That is a nice sun burst, what time was the picture shot??? No tripod right? so how did you keep your hand still?

    Dun think FE will help. wide-angle like 12-24 at 12mm end will help though...
