Thanks Ron. I have heard from others that Dfine works. I'll give it a try since I have the software in the PC but unused for over 2 years .

With the Mono, I was playing around and exposing to the other extreme, ETTL trying not to blow out even the harsh specular reflections. I think at some point I'll get confused, Mono ETTL and M240 ETTR

Thanks for the link. I'll read Tim's review later tonight. Briefly read the conclusions and I agree, I like the bokeh on my RX1 much better. Haven't notice much about the other faults (I'm a beginner in his eyes ), probably because I normally shoot street or subjects that does not really require evenness across the frame? I think Leica needs a 35Cron APO to complement the 50APO and 90APO.

Thanks for comments and 'Likes'!

Edward, second photo is great.
Joe, great photo of your son and that house looks like a 3-D color chart I also like #4 in the b&w set.
Ron, thank for the info on Dfine. I will certainly try it out now that Google gave it to me for free.

I was also thinking 35 Cron APO... but the price would be a killjoy.

As an alternative, the 28 Cron is pretty good across the frame, IMO. I think it has some sharpness falloff until around f/4, so perhaps some field curvature, but it seems to be of fairly simple character. I haven't really tested it much, though I don't get the feeling it has the wavy focus plane like many of the Luxes and some Crons.

I agree the RX1's bokeh is great. If Sony releases an RX2 with some refinements, primarily better AF, it could be a really compelling argument against spending about the same amount of money on a 35 Cron. I was initially very skeptical about the RX1 concept and its potential photographic value and usefulness, but it's growing on me.

Free? Is there a trick you can share for this?

Catching up with my comments

Joan, Joe, Ron, Joakim, thanks a lot for your comments

Joan and Joe, I finally sold the C Sonnar, not because I didn't like it, but because my plan from the start was to keep only one 50mm lens. I like it simple, and have enough headache choosing between the 50 planar and the 35 biogon I decided to keep the planar because I'm a sharpness freek, but I may have had a more difficult choice if the Sonnar was optimized for f/2.8 as I believe that's how it should be. Of course, with LV, that would be a different story altogether.

Joe, that was shot at dusk. I'm not a morning person The light lasted less than 2 minutes so I shot handheld at f/2.

Page 674:

Joe: Love that red bench photo. A lot of pop.
Robert: Nice museum set. 2 and 6 are my favourites.

Page 675:

Joe, thanks for the test. The uncorrected color shift doesn't look too bad.
Phil, nice b/w portrait, and especially the like flare in the second photo.
Allen, you caught a perfect moment there.
Ron, beautiful portrait and the flare adds interest to the photo.
Joe, great set. I especially like 2, 4 and 5.
Dale, great portraits, especially 2 and 4.
Zhangyue, very cute photo of your son. The slightly missed focus gives a classic look.
Bruno, very nice documentary set.
Justin, ditto, nice documentary shot.
Robert, well done architectural study. Very nice.

Page 676:

Zhangyue: Love that portrait of your daughter in the train. Gives some nostalgic mood.
Robert: both shots are fantastic.
Joakim: love the almost monochromatic nature of the tree photo.
Edwin: love the first boat shot. Very nice.
Justin: interesting street work in b/w.
Luka: fantastic work as usual, very bold and graphic. Love all three of them.
Dale: Nice curves
Joe: love the M and Biogon combination. No sign of the color shift there. Great Daytona set. No. 4 is just amazing.

He must be referring to the recent Google offer of the Nik Software Suite for $149. I think if you already purchased any of their software, you let them know and they send you the remaining ones such as Dfine, etc. at no charge.

Exactly, I already owned two of them and now I have the complete set. I had already registered mine at Nik so I just got a mail with download instructions from Google/Nik.

Wow this thread moves fast..
Just amazing work one and all. I love my 35 Lux FLE with my M Monochrom. Haven't had the newM in my hands yet.


Here are some images from the MM and the 35 Lux wide open.

Thanks guys. Just wanted to show the 35 lux wide open and the OOF areas which I son't think look all that bad for a 35 mm lens. They look a heck of a lot better than my 35L in my opinion. One thing about the RX1 and correct me if I'm wrong there aren't any DoF scales on the lens and the auto focus I have read is not that great. I use my DoF scales all the time.
