I am assuming that is why the various shutter speeds.

    I have to admit that I was too lazy to travel the 30 miles to try my hand at fireworks shots.
    I also used bulb and a cable release. I tried using a set 4-8 second shutter release before, and it just didn't work.

    I got stuck way too close and had to use a 10mm Roko. It turned out ok but the Zeiss 35mm f/2 Distagon is much better lens. Next Corn Festival I will be better prepared and secure a better spot.

    Your 24-85 and 18-35 are what you want. If you look towards the end of the thread I got stuck very close to the show and the only thing that saved me from my decision to just shoot with a 35 or 58mm was me throwing the 10mm Rokonin in the bag because I had room. In the future all I'll have is a 10mm Roko, 20mm f/1.8, 28mm voightlander, and Zeiss 35mm f/2. I shot a fourth with a 80-400G and ending up having to go back 6 blocks and missed half the show.

    I have to wait till Sunday. Our town is having a fest July 4th - July 7th and is ending the fest with Fireworks. I'm going to be on a roof top shooting over roof tops about a 1/2 mile away. Did it last year and didn't turn out that bad
