Michael, yes you did thanks. Think I'll keep my 5diii for now :-) Was contemplating switching to a 6d but I do like the colors from the 5d.

Michael, have you tried working in Lab color mode ? It offers much better control than the RGB mode and i'm really liking what I can do with it. Dan Margulis wrote a great book on it that I've been reading. I wouldn't mind getting ahold of a sample 6D raw file to give it a try in lab.

Manu, thanks for the comments and feedback. I am kind of newbie in PS. Having PS5 for step sharpening, that is a expensive tool for web presentation, and I don't even use it now. The Margulis's book have been on my shelf for about two years and I keep visit back first two chapter

My time is very limited with the stuff I have right now. and it is already stretching as a amateur. All I am hoping is LR, C1 or Aperture can do something integrated in their Raw process. As I feel LR4 has huge improvement over LR3 in terms of clarity, contrast changing impacting color.

As for 6D, I might be able to get the results I want but time is issue here. It could be just me prefer Sony/Nikon color just like many people prefer Canon. But check 6D thread, and canon summer thread and D800E/D800 thread here or GETDPI, it seems so obvious to me, Nikon has a edge not only DR, but color depth, tonality. I think you can get there with strong PP skill with Canon, but just require more skill and time, which I don;t have either.

What is the better way to get you some RAW file I have? or is there any place I can get raw file of 5DIII. I don't treat brand as religion. Will pick whichever suit my need.

Here are more sunset photos in the series that I posted some days ago. Images taken with my tripod mounted Leica 280mm f4 Apo Telyt lens and my Fujidfilm XE-1. All images processed in LR5. I still have more to process to post later.

I've been enjoying everyone else's photography here for a while, so I thought I'd make my own contribution.

Kit: Leica R 21-35, R7, Ektar 100, Pacific Imaging 7250pro3, Lightroom.

Here are a series of photos that I took the evening of July 26, 2013 in Magic Hour over quite some distance from hill to hill (1/2 mile or more) from the Trexler Nature Preserve Environmental Center, Schnecksville, PA. Images taken with my tripod mounted Leica 280mm f4 Apo Telyt lens and my Fujifilm X-E1 camera. Additionally, the first 3 images taken with Leica 2X Apo Extender and at f16. The 4th image was used with the Leica 1.4X Apo Extender and at f11. Images processed in LR5.

My bad, I am sure they are. We have a dedicate word for sheep, goat, etc... in Chinese. I default it as sheep in English.

The pics could from f2 or f2.8. This is the headache of adapting lens.

What are the general opinions and merits of of Leica R Summicron 2/50 (which I don't have) vs. Contax-Zeiss Planar 1.4/50 (which I have; this is the lens that currently spends the most time on my camera)?

Any truly side-by-side comparisons? I'm having a hard time finding any.

I have had the Contax 50/1.7 & 50/1.4, and currently have the ZS 50/1.4. Although I am a Zeiss man through and through, I prefer the Leica 50/2 over all of them, and by that I am not claiming to be scientific in my testing process, I just know that I get more enjoyment shooting with it and viewing the images afterwards. That being said, I would take the ZE 50/2 MP over any of them any day.

Leica R summicron 50 is great lens, so do many other 50mm prime lens. but if you value craftsmanship, build, handling over the top, this is one of best 50mm lens at decent price with Leica name on it.

I agree and understand Helimat's POV of MP50. It is definitely most impressive f2 performance of 50mm I ever see, there is something special about its render in focus zone. I, personally no longer value that perception high contrast/micro-contrast as important as before, so I am waiting for the 55f1.4

Some more from Kauai with 35cron
