Joe, thanks for the S2 image. They are very nice. I'd love to buy that body if they got a 35mm/50mm f1.4 lens for it . That will be the whole reason for me to get in, I don't need more pixel from MF.


Thanks Michael. Didn't know you had the 28Cron? Great set!

I think the right direction for digital medium format is option for higher ISO capability and live view rather than super fast lenses. Depth of field is shallower on the larger formats and going faster than f/2 will make lenses too large/heavy. Here's two examples on the S2, first with Summarit 70 @ f/2.5 and second with Mamiya 120 f/4 Macro lens. Even with crop factor of the S2 sensor, DOF on the 120mm @ f/4 can be tricky to focus up close.












Here is a link to an old review of the Leica S2, but may be relevant for those considering getting into Leica S system

Very nice shots all, keeps my inspiration up while working on my courses.

Katie congrats and welcome to the ZM 35/2 club.


This weeks photo assignment is on movement 3 shots. After my race in Banff last Saturday went for a quick shoot with the Monochrom. The other shots I am submitting are fast action shots and pans thus no rangefinder for those but I think this shot shows the subtleness of the critter's movement with the front left leg. So I am keeping up on including 1 monochrome shot per assignment.

Shot with 90 APO

Lovely colors and tones in the Karaagon shot, Charlie

Joe, again you're tempting me so much I think the attraction of the S system is in the viewfinder and the wonderful lenses, and of course the SLR form which is much different to the M. I don't even consider it medium format, though. With it's just 1.25x factor, it is more like a slightly beefed up FF rather than MF.

Nice catch, burningheart. Great timing!

TY Edward for kind words, I like your lens better all the time Also I like Philber's lens better too, the 18, which he showed me a few years back Well, come to think of it, I loved the zm18 on the nex-5n, and the 28 cron.

@ burningheart: one piece of advice: do not tell that vicious beast where your bird feeders are. Lovely capture.

Mountain Graffiti:

L1021230-3 by unoh7, 50 cron f/6.7

For Philber:

L1021313 by unoh7, ZM 18 f/9.5

There's something to be said for color photography

PS: @Joe more S2, please

Joakim, like that double sun-star effect, especially #2.
Allen, like #3, Reflection and expression on that cute boy
Katie, Superb!
Charlie, very nice portrait.

I think that is personal need difference Shooting experience is no question in favor to S, I especially dream about that OVF, the S2 vs D3X comparison in your link is pretty telling. That will be the key reason for me to get in if there is no fast glass for it.

I think you are right about MF future about ISO capability and LV, it looks that way. Big players have started using Sony MF sensor. (Though that is not what I want it head to ) I have hard time to take the fact that a FF equivalent f2 lens weight triple and priced quadruple no matter how good is if I am not print big, plus it wonít print much bigger than D810 now.

Saying this may purely because of sour grape and I am envy if money is no issue I have already been in. S is very sexy camera.

As for MF lust, I just canít forget what I see from Contax645 and 80mmf2 lens, that is in my dream if it is digital.

Nice images from M240, especially #2 from Ďblueí hour. Please do keep posting S2 images, sooner or later, one of us poor guys will fall in.

Edward, donít think too much, just buy it and let us know how you feel.(It must be great) Think after.

Or 810 might be calling: TBH, this is first camera body I feel close to perfect, looks like I might need AF lens to take advantage of it if not for cityscape or landscape.

A few images from 50lux ASPH from Vegas.

All WO

Katie, haunting image...just riveting.

I usually like color but I'm slightly leaning towards black and white for this one.

Black and White mainly because the artwork on the ceiling and stairwell really standout. Very nice image Gary.

Gary, color. But I would try a "darker" or "moody" B&W look, bringing down overall exposure and midtones a notch and accentuate the highlights.

What else could I expect from our B&W master?

I agree, the Contax Zeiss 80/2 creates beautiful portraits. You could also get a Leica S-Contax AF adapter and shoot all of those Contax 645 lenses with AF on the S/S2 but you lose some of the 80/2 magic with Leica's crop factor.
