I would be curious as to how you went about making the image Ulff! Obviously some serious post but I'm loving it!!

Thanks! It's from a series of decay images I edit in a similar style (http://www.paintingwithlight.de/forgotten_places.htm). The image was taken handheld (not my usual approach) and the post processing involved many local and global adjustments of contrast and brightness, too many individual steps to recall. It's no HDR, just one image.

On the street I generally use 2m. At f8 that's about 3.5' to infinity. I prefer a shutter speed of 200, so TaV mode works well. Those are my MY1 values. Of course, that's auto ISO.

Thanks. Guessing I should up the f/stop to f/4 or f/5.6 minimum to help with pictures being in focus.

Quick question....How pocketable is the GR? I have heard references that it is very pocketable but looking at pictures (all I can do) it seems rather large to be truly comfortable. What do you all say?

if you wear skinny jeans, then it will not fit.
but if you wear regular jeans or khaki pants, then no problem.

went camping with the GR, I love how it stays safely in my pocket, while I have the X-Pro1 + 14mm on my neck

I shoot VERY, VERY close. Just check out my Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tomkaz/

My best results with Snap focus when shooting super close are 1 meter and f/8. Auto ISO.

That's how I get this close all in focus.

Nice to hear your thoughts, Tom. And I enjoyed the thread on Serious Compacts.

Yours strikes me as an atypical approach. I think most of us are trying to include more context in our street images. According to dofmaster.com, 1m at f8 will give DOF of .68 to 1.88m. That would not work for me, but I understand how it does for you. I guess this underscores the need to understand the OP's intention. After thinking on this some more, I might give 1.5m a try. I sometimes miss focus because I'm too close. I've got Fn2 set for Snap Focus distance, but sometimes life moves too fast.

most street photographers that I know shoot at f8, in very sunny conditions I can shoot f11 or f16 (I do on my RFs) but there are also occasions where I shoot at f4 or f5.6 if I have a slow film or light is not favorable.

on the GR I have my snap set at 1.5m and I also shoot at f8 which gives me a DoF from .91 to 4.37, if light permits then I can go f11 or f16 no problem

shamefully I haven't been able to do much street with my GR but here's a quick one
1.5m, f8 and iso 800

the ladies with strollers are about 4 meters away from me, look how they and the background are relatively in focus

Post processed in Lightroom. The GR puts out decent jpegs but I prefer shooting it in raw. Great street pics all. I'm definitely going to try shooting more with the snap feature. :-)

There's a guy who uses the GR and swears by snap focus at 2 meters using f/6.3 and everything is in focus. Just don't get as close as I do and that should work. I like to shoot f/8 if I can. To me that almost guarantees that everything from a few feet away all the way to infinity is sharply in focus. I also like to shoot at 1/500th of a second at the very minimum because I move when I shoot and I shoot moving targets. The other day I shot at 1/800th of a second at f/8 and I didn't miss a shot with regards to tack sharp images across the frame. You need good light to pull that off though.

Best of luck to you.

Some of you are overestimating the depth of field of the GR. Because it's so sharp compared to other APS-C camera/lens combinations, there is actually much less DOF.

You can test this for yourself by taking a series of pictures of something at infinity at various manual focus distances, and you will see that you being losing sharpness at much farther distances than the DOF-bar on the LCD tells you.

Also, you lose sharpness at any f-stop higher than f/6.3 from diffraction.

Tom K; would love to see a B&W version of the second shot. Would make for a striking image.
