2012 New York International Autoshow

Through the BMW CCA and BMW NA, I was granted slightly earlier access to the NYIAS. What a great excuse to buy some new camera gear! All of these pictures were taken using a Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L II on a 60D body. This was actually my first time using this lens and being able to go that wide (even on the crop body 60D) was crucial to get decent shots once the crowds arrived.  

Prior to seeing the BMW i8 at the NYIAS, I had very little interest in the car.  It was simply stunning in person.

2012 BMW M6 Coupe. Massive carbon brakes behind the 5-spoke wheels. I’m really liking the aerodynamics package that BMW put together for this car. It looks like they have put their rolling road windtunnel in Munich to good use.
