Michael, yes, I've often found airplanes in my images this way. I like the first and last.

Ryan, Charles could answer that question. I've only used the 75 Lux once during the meeting with Andrew and I thought the focusing ring feel was very good. It was nicely dampened and smooth without being too light. The focus throw is also suitably long for such a lens where focus precision is required. I believe one complaint many have with the 90AA is the focus throw is too fast?

And coincidentally, here are a couple random Toronto shots with the 75 Lux stopped down:

Thanks Ron that helps. I like the focus throw feel on my 90AA, but it could be because I use it side by side the Nocilux, which is quite stiff. It would be nice if it was a little longer of a throw as it is pretty touchy.

I think the 75 lux is officially on my 2014 wish list. The shorter MFD and speed is very appealing, as are all the wonderful photos in this thread.

That's a great comparison! On the M9, the pixel-level aliasing is creating completely false patterns on the rooftops like you point out. It's like the tiles are infected and growing alternate geometry!

In the M, the pixel-pitch is fine enough that aliasing occurs only at the sensel-level, and then there is resultant aliasing in the Bayer process and you just get moire, but no false luminosity detail.


The M is a little less objectionable, but I prefer any camera with a decent AA filter in place.

Take a look at this post on LUF where the conversions were made with C1 instead and the M9 doesn't look nearly as bad as with LR 4.3. FWIW, I also tried it with RPP and it looked similar to LR (a couple posts farther down in that thread).

I doubt if leica want to do that or just have to do that for good enough performance at corner. But it gives another what Leica need badly: Niche.

In his version, I definitely prefer M9's output. it seems has better sharpness per pixel. (hopefully, I put it right for what I mean) His M240 file looks over sharpened.

Leica M9's file has crisp look I don't see in my D700 or even D800E.(in this case M240) But I guess I need work on my sharpening skill

More great work everyone

Ryan grrrrrrreat captures of the cute little boy...
Ron #2 above TERRIFIC....
Z....love the shots from sisters dancing class

I haven't shot anything lately for myself. Busy shooting for work. Been busy mounting, matting and framing and I'm so sick of it.....

Had lunch with a good bud today and I took this.
I think this illustrates the range of the MM . Very fast edit.

Ryan, my 75 Lux's calibration is now spot on, and is one of last ones from Germany. IMO it has the best focus throw of any lenses I have had to date. For this reason alone, when shooting portraits, I will take out the 75 Lux over the 90 Cron AA. Purely ergonomics and MFD, and you have the ability frame near portraits identical to the 90 Cron AA.

Michael, wonderful color palette to your shots!
Ron, very nice shots with the 75 Lux compared to the 90 Summarit! I find your comparisons with the M and M9 very interesting! I still have C1 Pro, and have used it exclusively for the M9 files, until LR4 came out. Looking at some of the results I may still it for PP'ing the M9 files!!
Allen, excellent portrait I think the M-M will be around for along time to come, as no camera will achieve quite the same look. I do hope they come out with profiles for the M-M as this will extend PP'ing ability of the DNG files!!

A shot from the archives with the 75 Lux, even at f/5.6, it is important to have the calibration accurate at near, mid and far. ( PP'd with C1 Pro)

Thanks Charles! When I first was setting up my kit I avoided 75mm as I felt it was a little too close to 50mm to be my far end. Now that my Nikon's sit unused 95% of the time, thinking a 35/75 combo would be a nice (fairly) light walk around kit that would serve me in most family outings.

Not been here for few days. Many nice photos.

Wow, Charles, love your beach photos, especially the first one. As someone above me said, love the tones and the mood.

Gary, I like the wide angle shot and also the rest of riverbank photos.

Thanks all for sharing.

Just did a 100% crop of the one I posted. its was the low res full image that I posted that was the one on my desktop 150 DPI at 12 X 8. Thats the same image I uploaded to photobucket. Its so hard to judge sharpness from a photobucket 100kb Jpg in my opinion.

Phil, Winston and Michael, thank you
Allen, wonderful strong portrait!! Yes it is so hard to judge the performance of some lenses on the desktop I find this often with the 50 Nocti f/1.0, not necessarily sharp on the web, but very sharp on full size prints.
Michael, love those two shots!
