Thanks Allen, Charles, Michael, Edward, Joakim
Michael, that bear shot is excellent!! Those 50Cron shots are also really nice. BTW, I've been looking at your pic on the R lens thread, many excellent shots there as well, the 35Lux-R is really nice looking. Have you tried the 80Lux?
Jonas, the 1st and 3rd shots are excellent! The X1 is still an impressive camera in the right hands.
Allen, more wonderful street shots, all very nice.
Joakim, very nice set, 3rd shot is excellent!
Ash, really nice set with the 28Cron. Nice pp as well.
Edward, excellent shots from Lebanon! Love that first 35/2 shot as well as the 85/4 ones! Post more pics from Lebanon please.
wstam, nice set, although the pp seems more contrasty on these but it could be the ZM35/2?
What is the aperture setting of your son's portrait? 28cron could be my favorite lens from what I see so far from you guys. My next M purchase has to be this one.
f/2.8 I believe. I love this lens at all apertures. Beautiful rendering and magical.
Seems you have mastered the MM very well
Actually, far from it. I find it frustrating shooting deliberate and casually because of the sensitive highlight clippings. I always have to think about exposure and watch the histogram, more so than on the M9. I also find that with the MM, the files take more effort to pp compared to the M9 because the DNGs are flat but with lots of details in reserve, and sometimes require some effort to get the intended results. The pics posted online cannot really do justice to the output of the MM. You really need to look at prints or on a calibrated monitor such as Eizo or NEC PA, IQ and wow factor becomes more apparent.

For those who recall, I was inquiring here about getting a few of my lenses coded. I ended up sending the mounts to Jon Milich in the US to mill the coding grooves. Just wanted to let everyone know that he did a superb job and turnaround time was under two weeks. At $50/flange this can be an attractive alternative for some. Highly recommended.
Gary, thanks for the info, seems like a good price. Is it easy to remove the mount from the lenses? I called DAG today and Don charges $130 to code my older lenses.
Either the marker ink wears off or I set the coding manually in the camera, then change lenses and forget to change coding back to auto.
I have entire sets of 35Lux ASPH pics manually coded as a 90 Tele-E and then I wonder, wow those 90 Tele-E looks really sharp and quite wide .
