lenticular: great portrait. The guy expresses to have a lot of character to me. And the background is Canberra as I remember it from my short trip there.

Wstan - nice Vespa shot.

Ron - I like your pics with the driving snow! Makes me shiver... I will be in NE USA Monday and will likely see the aftermath of the storm.

Thanks guys!

Sorry for not commenting on previous pages - there's so much - great to see this thread moving along at a fast pace!
Going back to 635:

Michael - very interesting hotel. I was in St. Augustine about 10 years ago and totally missed it. IIRC, there was something about the town that's not 'typical Florida.' Looks like you got a lot of good material out of your trip to China, despite having to look after your kids and other family responsibilities.

Winston - I agree with Hilmar, your b&w conversions are very nice. Cool that you're able to get that close to the SU-27. An airshow? The dockhands images are also cool, along with the Jakarta old harbour image a page earlier.

Allen - the abstract a couple pages back and the swing photo are great! The MM looks very impressive at high ISOs. Still very smooth.
Edward - great variety of images, very fun to look through. Very 'chrome' colours, as always!
Charles - nice portraits! I finally got a chance to experience a bit of the Noctilux f/1 'poison' a few days ago. It could be dangerous...!

Thanks Gary! Not sure what it will be like in the NE, but around here it's supposed to hit +7 on Monday, so it will probably be quite soggy.

So back on Wednesday I met up with fellow Leicaphile Andrew G for a photo walk trip to Toronto. We didn't really have a specific itinerary, but it was a great day to wander around and try out some of his impressive lens collection!

Here are some from Union Station:

Ron, maybe I'll get accused of blasphemy but I like the 90 Summarit photos better than then Noctilux

I agree with joakim, Ron. As always I admire your retouching skills. Very impressing. The first image pops so much.

wstan - beautiful scooter picture!

seekuh - The picture is taken about 90km S of Canberra, looking roughly west. Yes, the subject has indeed much character. I haven't asked his permission to post, so that's all the detail I'll give (it's all good though!).

Ron - I also agree with the other two posts re preferring the Summarit 90 shots of Toronto rail station. I particularly like that first one! (BTW I have a nice 70-300 Contax N bought from Andrew G via this forum!).

Horses for courses. The Noctilux does not excel at technical subject matter, but move on to people, and oh boy, that 90 Summarit will gather dust in the bag!

Thanks Doug. I agree that image held up pretty well, though much of it is light areas where grain normally wouldn't be much issue. Of note, the group of people to the left of the tank were dodged another stop, so some areas have been pushed 4 stops. I did apply some negative shadow to some areas that were beginning to look a bit too washed out. In terms of grain, I don't think it's any worse than shooting at ISO 1250.

I thought I read somewhere that the degree of edge correction applied by the M9 is ISO dependent,

Howdy, Ron. To follow up on this post about vignetting correction, you are correct. I believe it was the first firmware fix that decreases the vignetting correction as the ISO goes up. Of course, if one stays at ISO 160 in all types of light, like I've been doing, there may be issues when pushing 4 or 5 stops, because, due to the vignetting compensation, the vignetted areas may be pushed more like 5-6 stops, and things get ugly and blotchy around the edges sometimes. On the flipside, if you use CornerFix, it may be advantageous to use a single ISO, because the variable vignetting correction makes profiling difficult, so it's technically necessary to use a different CornerFix profile for each ISO if you code your lens.

Like Edward mentioned, I was considering just not using any coding at all with my 50 Summicron collapsible, but, after doing that for a few days, I've come to realize that there is a noticeable (to me) amount of color shift, even though it is a 50mm lens.

Since I don't want to mess with CornerFix, I think I'm going to use coding with the 50 collapsible. I think I'm still going to shoot ISO 160 most of the time, when I only need to push anywhere from zero to a few stops, but, when I go into obviously dark environments, I'll raise the ISO to something like 1250 (haven't decided exactly which ISO to use) and keep it there.

p.s. it just hit me that Lightroom has that new flat field plug-in, so I may consider turning off coding and just use that. hmmm...

Gary, Lenticular11 - thanks!

Ron, thanks - I love your Union station shots - gotta love that Summarit 90, I love mine too!

airfrogusmc - nice BWs, love the 1st one!

Have a nice weekend, everyone

I like the 2nd one Airfrogusmc. The 35mm summicron is amazing, but I still find myself lusting after the FLE.

Ron, love the first 2 especially.

Some MM + 35mm Cron, pretty much everything I shoot is with a yellow or orange filter these days.
