I like that last shot a lot. Very dramatic. I like the idea of something in the foreground such as this bush. It gives more of a sense of depth.

You are all very kind! As such forgive me for posting a completely different kind of image. This was the shot very shortly after I received the x1 - and using zone focus. Hope you all enjoy it. That's it from me for a while - I'll sit back and enjoy the expert shots I've been seeing!

Break time? Actually ( and i won't post the other) the guy on the right was extremely distressed. I believe it was over a lady.






iso 100 (i'm not set on my sharpening right now, i think it introduces too much noise)

h00ligan, nice shots. Great shots on the golf course. I like the sharp portrait too.

gregoryniss, great to see some shots with the nokton 1.1, with the M8. I have felt this lens is somewhat of an equilizer, when it comes to low light photos, that is relatively cost effective.

Luka, I really like your shots. It is hard to replace the 5DII, but I am loving the weight and size advantage.

Interesting comparison shot zombii. Yes, I am spending sometime getting the WB right, and using a Spyder cube, to get some experience on what the accurate WB is, and then compare it to actual WB. I have read that the best is to set it to Daylight, and adjust in ACR if needed. So far, it is very interesting, I am think... I am progressing

I find it hard to pick up the 5DII now, just it seems so much larger and heavier than what I remembered.

I wonder how long it will be before we get a FF the size of the X1. I bought the x1 and 7d (in hindsight I should have probably gone with a 5d mk2 but now I'm not willing to take the loss so soon) and to be honest, it is impractical to have the 7d with me all the time - So I get where you are coming from Charles. I volunteer at the biggest no kill shelter in AZ, so I need the speed. Maybe I just need to adjust more. So far (and for all its shortcomings) I haven't found a compact to match the x1 yet, even at 2k. That said, I would love a firmware update to smooth things out a bit.. well speed things up a bit. May be a pipe dream though. MFT to me seems like a very temporary middle ground, which is why i left that system. Thanks for your kind comments. I had never zone focused before that day I also really enjoy the nokton shots.. for the money it certainly seems like a great lens!

That's surreal. I wish I could justify the expense and use it to potential! To me it looks like an oil painting green screen to the bg. Really well done, I like it a lot.

As it turns out, today offered a good opportunity to do the comparison I was talking about. In this case, the color rendition was very similar. Both images are raw conversions in Lightroom with default settings. Now the jpegs from the M8 were very different with decidedly yellow/orange clouds.

Sorry for the interruption Paul. This is all I have about this.

First image is from the M8 using a ZM 24. Second is from the 5D2 with a Summicron 35.


This difference of WB from different manufacturers of camera, in this lighting is normal. The 5DII does render better, in comparison without adjustment, but in difficult lighting I would always shoot RAW, and maybe have a white ref pt.

Excellent shots psquared. The sharpness of those two lenses wide open is the only legitimate argument I can see for their exorbitant price. Stopped down even to f/2, the pre-ASPH versions are super sharp and only give up anything appreciable wide open.

Nice shots psquared. I like the bokeh on the #1. What shutter speed were you using?

I find with M9, I can use about 2/3 of the 1/FL rule for shutter speeds now. With the 5DII, I would need to use about 1.5 times the 1/FL, to avoid any camera shack.

Nice side-effect of the Rangefinder design, people who look at you when you take the picture don't look like they're staring down the barrel in the resulting shot.

Great shots Thrice. Amazing at f/1.5. Really like #2, the sharpness on the eyes.

My ZM 50 Sonnar is arriving tomorrow.
