Thanks Joakim thanks for the info on the mower, love that B and W of the tree, and the rendering of the BG! Nice set again! Really digging no. 2

Allen wonderful set, but number 7 takes the cake for me all the way! Was her dress color pink? Just so I could imagine

Thanks zhangyue love your stuff, I enjoy it immensely, love no. 1, thanks for the safety tip, I plan on going to Downtown skid row Los Angeles in a few weeks for some night time action, that will be the true test of fear for me!

Thanks Ron, yes you won't see me going there anymore

Thanks Joe, I figured that after I took a second glance, never less still nice to my eyes

Michael, the 35CronV1 looks stunning in B&W. +4 exposure looks good on this shot and the tones are also really nice.

Joakim, nice set with the sunset scene, lots of pop on both the 28Cron and 18Distagon shots. The 18 Distagon shot is excellent and my favorite from this set.

Phil, congrats on yet another new aquisition Really nice tonality, excellent shot.

Joe - really like what you got out of the 50 Lux Pre. I had a love/hate with that lens, and find that its best to pair with a Cron if possible. The wide open rendering is just beautiful, love the bokeh. Razor sharp at distance though it is not...until about f/5.6.


Thanks Ryan. I'm liking this lens wide open but am not so sure how to deal with the lack of sharpness at mid to far distance wide open.

50Lux pre-ASPH @ f/1.4

Joe, that 'Nocturnal delight' is surreal. Nice work. That is usually what SLR for controlling DOF
Phil, nice tonality
Edward, Love the first one.

Some more 35cron V1 from Hangzhou. (I will continue post 35cron until somebody commit to buy it )

Thanks for the comments and likes, Phil, Joakim, Ryan, Charles, Edward, Allen, Michael!

Edward, excellent set with the Zeiss lenses. PP is really nice on the first two with the ZM35/2. #2 & 4 are my favorites, #2 has so much going on, really interesting photo and the exposure is spot on.

Carl, the Canon 100/2 LTM shot looks really nice.

Michael, how much for the 35Cron? When you decide to sell, let me know. But what will you replace it with? I like the balanced composition on the 2nd shot with both the cups on each side.

Nice B&W's Joe. It must be nice to have a spare Leica to use whilst the other is being repaired.... No idea when mine will be returned but it looks like it now made it back to NJ and they are giving the sensor a clean before it is shipped to me. Must be patient I suppose!

No, no, you misunderstand me. I am not trying to sell mine. but want to have more people with lens on this board. Since your 50lux Pre-ASPH is keeping push me to the cliff. Another wonderful set.

If you can find this cron V1 at decent price, it is a strong BUY. recommended, but not for $3000+ ebay price.

Now again, 35cron V1







I will keep trying until run out of pic

I got my tracking # of M9 I look forward for its new look with M9-P leather cover.

Thank you Zhangyue, Joe!

CVickery, love the rendering and color of the Canon 2/100, and the slightly greenish WB works perfectly.

Joe, the first shot is very appealing. Very nice set altogether. I think the Noctilux f/1.0 works very well with the MM.

Zhangyue, beautiful color and composition!

Gary, glad to hear the good news!

I got a question for you guys. I am intending to compact my lens line up to only 4 lenses, so I decided the 4/18 should go, since it is by far my least used FL. The question is, do you think the 25 is wide enough, or should I replace it with the 21? I'm actually quite happy with the 25 performance and use it quite often (though I didn't post much recently), so I'm tending to keep it, but I'm not sure yet if the 21 would be a better option.

I dont know how we are supposed to tell you that Edward; you're just going to have to evaluate a 21 and decide between it and the 25 IMO.

I mean 50 is wide enough for me. It's also long enough for me. So for me if I was going to be gifted either I would take the 25 for it's IQ.

Thanks Gary, Michael, Edward.

Michael, since you like the 50Lux R, don't you want one for the M9 Another nice one with the 35CronV1, very contrasty. I agree, $3k seems expensive, this seems more like for collectors.

BTW I somehow ended up with 2 copies of the 50Lux pre ASPH E46. If anyone is interested, send me a pm.

Edward, for 4 lenses, I would go with 18/21, 28/35, 50 & 90. 18 if you really need it for landscapes, architectural or geometric compositions. 21 seems more practical if you want to include faces of people with slightly less facial distortion? I'm not a 25FL person since its too close to a 28Cron. My advice is to keep them all

Thank you Red and Joe. I sold the 18 already today. It was a fast transaction from one guy who bought from me before. TBH, I'm not an UWA person. I have owned the eos 20/2.8, CY 18/4, ZA 16-35, and now the ZM 18, and altogether, I think each lens has been used once or twice in the entire time I owned it. I may have to buy a ZM 21 and evaluate it by myself. The FL is too close to keep both, but my main interest in the 21 is the higher center sharpness and lower corner sharpness than the 25, and the alleged field curvature that should produce interesting effects up close.

Edward, give the CV 21 1.8 a try. Its a nice lens and f/1.8 for low light or subject separation could well provide an incentive to use this focal length on the M9. Are they available locally to try out in Bangkok? The ZM21 is sharp centrally wide open and you are right, there is field curvature and as discussed on this thread in the past, the corners only catches up at f/5.6 or f/8. But I do recall you shared some ZM25 shots some time back and they all looked great! Too many choices?

Edward,

I know that you favor the Zeiss line-up, but did you see Ron's write-up on several 21mm lenses? He compared the ZM21 to the 21 SEM and the CV 21/1.8 and the CV looked like an interesting alternative if you can put up with the size of the lens. It may be the next M-mount lens in my bag. I'll have to look at the MTFs, I didn't realize that the ZM21 performed even better in the center than the ZM25. Anway, have fun with the comparison if you end up getting the ZM21. Other folks on this thread have put it to excellent use.

Edit: Joe beat me to it
