Bride of Frankenstein as a theater piece! How was it? Or are these wax figures?

Nice pictures!

Why not? It is after all daylight up there - and close to daylight when the light has been reflected showing us the moon. At f/4 it sounds about right with 1/500 and low ISO.

Yes, the sunny f/16 rule generally applies to anything directly illuminated by the Sun that is neutral gray in its reflectivity.

@ISO 100:

f/16 - ~1/100
f/11 - ~1/200
f/8 - ~1/400
f/5.6 - ~1/800
f/4 - ~1/1600

but in this case the moon was being imaged through very high thin overcast, was not directly overhead (more atmosphere to get through), and generally needs a bit of over-exposure from a neutral gray reflectivity value. So a couple of stops off from this old-fashioned film era rule seems about right.

I likely could have done 1/1,000 sec just fine as well.

I actually took that image trying to get the halo around the moon from the very high thin (likely ice) clouds. 40mm wasn't wide enough, but I was able to get this image with the 100% crop and minimal post processing.

Amazing what kind of usable super high crops you can get from today's 40+MP sensors and very good glass!

1st shot with the 40mm f/1.2.

I found it very easy to focus with wide open on the A7R III. I like the pop, the color, the contrast.

I think I will have fun with this one. 40mm is a nice focal length, it brought me back to my micro 4/3rd days using the Panasonic 20mm f/1.8.

Same here! I took a M43 as 2nd camera to Morocco years ago and surprised that 20mm(on M43) has a very useful FOV and I prefer that lens to the kit zoom.

It just took me a few shots to realize, this 'over priced', weird bokeh, manual focus and many flaws of a lens, IS WORTH EVERY PENNEY.

This is yet another weapon in the Hepkitty's bag and will see some milage.

I love this one, the jury is still out on my new 35mm f/1.4.

Glad you ate digging it, Lucinda, but I must say, at least on a screen, your GM 85 shots have more pop and je-ne-sais-quoi character. 😄

Which 35/1.4 lens did you get? I ended up with a Leica 35ílux FLE, in large part because Iím not a fan of big

Hello daddy-o, nothing so far in my eyes beats the wonderful 85mm GM, that lens is a absolute must, it is fantastic and just has the sweetest look. However 85mm can be limiting when one needs a wider view.

The 40mm f/1.2 has great pop and 3d rendering, which begs the question, does it have more then the 85mm GM? So far for me its a close call. the 40mm depending on how far you are away from your subject and what you background is has incredible pop that will come out in my shots as I use it and upload more here.

the advantage of the 40mm to me is easy to use, small footprint, lighter rig, and 3d pop and character, the shots I have posted so far are my intial testings, yet they are enough to tell me this lens is a keeper, and better things are to come.

I have the new Samyung 35mm f/1.4, to this point in my life, the RX1 and RX1R II has ruined all 35mm lenses for me.....
