Thanks Gary! How about we let the 28 Lux ship, then maybe you buy my Cron? I suspect the Lux will be announced for serial production at Photokina? Guessing it will be $6-7K, so not sure yet if I can stretch for it, even selling the Cron, which I'd be kind of hesitant to do anyway because it's a relatively compact optic and usually fast enough for my needs. The Lux will be on the bigger side and I'm not sure I like that it has the 21/24 Lux focusing ring and aperture design. (Too close together, especially for gloved use.) I do think, as probably mentioned before, and definitely by others, that the 28 Cron loses a little bit of its magical look on the M240. I suspect it could be the in-camera profile correction, but haven't yet tried it uncoded to see how much of a difference there is...
Robert - for me it's often a battle of wills to plow through the backlog. I've been trying to stay on top of it, but in the last couple months started to let it slide again. Other than jobs, I also haven't been out shooting much for myself. Hmm... an MM. Not that I have the $$$, but I've seen some stellar MM & 28 Cron images...
Adrian - really like the first and third, in particular. Looks like it was a bit hazy that day? Kind of adds an analog treatment.
Joakim - nice continuation of the theme!
Some from Killarney Provincial Park, where we got a bit unlucky with a bundle of firewood that was damp/green and didn't burn well, but created a photo opp as the ample amount of smoke wafted through the trees around the campsite, accentuated by the lower angle of the evening sun. Tried it with 21, 28 and 50mm lenses, but seem to like these with the 28 Cron best, and not just to tease Gary.
