Hey, at least you have decent and fairly stable weather in SF!
Yesterday I missed a great partially cloudy sunset and today gray, blue and wet is the only option (beside old outtake shots)

Cron-R 35 @f/2.8

Thanks for all the comments.

Jones, My Rokkor is metal focus ring version. 'Legend' said Metal version has better build and optics. But I don't know about optics and wouldn't trust it, but build should be true. See Sebboh's comment above. He has a lot more experience on Rokkor
Manu, congr! look forward to see pics!
Dreck, previous owner tell me the lens is horrible before he send to Jim have it fully CLA and converted. The inconsistency can't be fixed without new helicoid.
Anyway, I still love what I got and after see through viewfinder with this Rokkor, it
...Show more

Wow! Looks like a painting off in the distance!

Yes, it is. I have SR60 at home, which get tortured by my kids, SR80 at work, and use to have RS1(home)&SR325i(work). Now I no longer into it with Kids took all my time, hence opt for lighter ones with maybe 90% of performance. My favorite headphone house sound by far.

Thank you all for comments and 'like'.

Curious to know your thoughts on the 6D compared to the D700. How would you rate it overall? I used to be in love with the D700, but by the time I was ready to get the camera and lenses (ie $) the 6D was out, and it also involved less lens surgery to adapt the lenses.

I tried two models from them.(I don't remember model name anymore, it has been a while) They are great, especially for string and small scale Jazz but I always go back to Grado in the end. The same reason I prefer older Sonus Faber speakers to Quad. Ultra fidelity is not my priority, That is why I like 80lux

I couldn't get the file from 6D to the like of my D700 so far. at least not consistently.
However, there are multiple reason for this:

1. I am so used to D700 output over the years. (Most likely the reason.)
2. I have develop a workflow around D700 for a while. Adobe's profile(D2Xmode1/2, portrait, neutral etc) works great with D700. but I can't say the same with 6D, and I have no enough experience with Canon's file.
3. Canon 6D's AutoWB is behind D700 IMO.(this surprise me as I heard Canon should be better here) It given wrong WB a lot more than D700. But since this could also be profile related issue, I don't want draw conclusion so fast.

I am surprised to found I prefer skin tone got from Nikon as Canon is famous for that. Again, this could down to the personal preference or I just don't know how to get it from Canon, as I see lots beautiful portraits from Canon.

So far, For 6D

1. I like the handling
2. Shutter sound
3. adept lens
4. more pix for Landscape

Not like: sensor

It is really so so. I have briefly used D800E for 3 weeks, NEX7 for half years. I now can understand the issue here. Though, I have to say it shouldn't prevent me get the pic I wanted if I know how to deal with it, Just not the same freedom to do PP. The file respond to slider is a lot less than new Sony sensor. I feel there is less tonal range, especially when you deal with contrast and clarity, the color get blotch easier on skin tone.

You certainly can get good results, as now there is no bad tool, but it failed to impressive me technically.

As for Low light, yes, it is good, but it is looks to me more relevant to JPG shooter,(Canon must have a good engine for that to compensate their poorer Raw) but I am not JPG shooter, with little PP, I can get similar results with D700 in Raw and might even better or close results with D800E at low light. I don't care how it perform ISO12800, who care, I don't know. So the beneficial is minimal, at least to me.

Sounds pretty negative, huh? But actually, I love it for the reason given and plan to work with it as I have seen so many beautiful pics from Canon shooters. Tool is tool.

A tool is a tool. I seem to prefer nikon's skin tones out of the box more than canon's. But having access to more lenses makes canon more flexible/fun.
