rirakuma, did you do anything to adjust the colors in Lightroom? They look great to my eyes, while I always struggle with my Nikons... I am picky though.


Myam I had to set my own white balance in Lightroom but I used the standard Adobe profile. OOC was way too warm as many already know that the M tends to err on the warm side with AWB. I didn't take many photos that day so I'm still unsure about the colors. I think that pic has "decent" colors, its not amazing like I've seen on many M9 pics but its a little bit nicer than what I usually get from the D800. Rsolti the lens is a 35 lux asph .

A few pics from the Calgary Stampede... It's quite amazing it even happened due to the extensive flood damage in the area.

I just got back to Los Angeles from Paris and am sorting through memory cards and hard drives, but there was a particular capture I really liked so I processed it and did a B&W conversion as well.

Great thing about having a Leica is that I saw this unfolding from 50 meters away and took off running to get the shot. While on the move I set my aperture, shutter speed, and prefocussed just how I wanted it. Well, I got there and got the snap in time, and was glad I did. Hope you enjoy.

Outstanding Paris shot! The sky really cooperated with you, giving you super nice clouds.

Rsolti, this Canon 100/2 is a gem. Love the rendering. No. 1 and 3 are exceptionally nice.
Gary, you really know how to make the M240 sing. Beautiful colors and you captured some very nice moments there.
Tthorne, welcome to this thread, and what a fantastic shot! I think the b/w version has more impact.

Much appreciated! I agree, but then I feel I am so often biased towards black and white photography. It seems to reach me more often than color. The 240 is great for b&w, but having tried the monochrome, I do lust for one...

Joakim, both sets are very neat. Love the colors in the 1st set, and the b/w treatment in the 2nd.

Still testing the Sonnar. All shots wide open, ACR defaults except for WB adjustment, and slight contrast added to the 1st shot. (By the way, that's me in the green shirt )

I'm happy to say that I'm nailing the focus very consistently in good light.

Gary, great pics from the stampede! I really like #3, but curious to see more of that tattoo on #2 . How are you liking the 35 Cron ASPH? I didn't know you had one. And a question on the M240....do you know how much better it is at high ISO vs the M9? I have seen reports that say 1 stop better, but then I see examples from the M240 at ISO 16,000 that look far better....like 3 stops better than the M9. I'm pretty sure you jumped from M8 to M240, but have you compared to an M9?

tthorne, lovely shot....I definitely prefer the B/W. Great timing!

Joakim, really like the B/W shots above.

Edward, the 85 Sonnar looks spectacular! They look razor sharp with a very lovely oof rendering. Looks like the ultimate portrait lens. I may need to check one of these out....if I can find one. They look really good. Regarding focusing, you say you are nailing it, have you tried any other long length lenses? I am curious if it is the construction of the lens (well dampened focus ring) that helps you nail these shots or is it that you just hit 99% because of excellent eye sight? I usually somewhat struggle with long length lenses, though the Canon 100 is giving me excellent results. It seems like I can get very precise with the focus

I wanted to share this with you all.
I just found out I received a Mark of Excellence Award in the "I Shot It" B&W photography competition with this photo:

Just scroll down, its near the bottom.

Rsolti, love your last set with the vintage police cars, and the vintage colors and look

The Sonnar is indeed spectacular, and it's easy to focus because of the special helicoid that the guys at Cosina didn't know how to assemble, so that Zeiss had to make it in Germany and charge us Leica prices Even in the shot taken by my friend who is not a photographer, the focus is absolutely accurate. This said, the only other long lens I have tried on the M9 is the f/4 Tele-Tessar, but that one was really easy to focus because of the slow aperture.

Allen, this is really one of your best shots. The PP is perfect. No wonder you received the mark of excellence.

Thank you Edward and Ryan.

Allen, congratulations on the award. It's an excellent photo, have you had it printed because it must be even better on print?

Edward, very nice set. I do hope you keep the lens despite its weight, maybe a trip to the gym?

Ryan, great set with the VC 21/1.8 specially #1 and #3.

Thanks Ryan. I had to be pretty stealthy to get that tattoo shot with my wife and kids by my side. The 35cron asph is really starting to grow on me. At first, I found it to be almost technically perfect though quite "sterile" in rendering. After using the lens for some time, it really is a superb, all round performer. I feel it was just a matter of getting to know the lens. Super sharp corner-to-corner and pretty decent bokeh too. I would say there is a 1.5-2 stop improvement with high ISO compared to the M9. This is based purely on the many images I have seen from the M9 but I have never owned one. PS - there is no ISO 16,000 on the M240.

woops, fat finger...that would be impressive if the M240 was capable of that, wouldn't it I see Huffster posted some shots at 2,500 that also look fairly impressive for Leica. Looks as good if not better than the M9 at 1,200. Maybe I'm just doing it all wrong
