Thanks Allen and Joe

Haven't tried the 1.4, was about to buy it, but figured I shoot 50mm or less 90% of the time, got one I could borrow to test it out?

Phil

I don't own one but have tried it. It works fine for 50mm. Quite a few of my Nocti shooter firiends use the 1.4x to help with focusing.

Leonas, nice shots with the 90AA. One of my fav Leica M lenses of all time.

Ok, Leica HDR effects may be sort of a sacrilegious thing, but this photo needed some pop: Admittedly, it is candied up pretty good...

35 Lux stopped down to like f8

Topaz Adjust processed:

This HDR has been voted down at this point, in favor of the non-HDR post that follows I guess I just never normal processed this shot to give it a real try, because I now like the natural shot much more than this candied up HDR hack job I did. .

Doug, am not a fan of HDR unless its subtle but I like the composition on your shot, nice. Share a non HDR version for us as well?

I started to share that Joe, (thanks on composition!) and the version I have loaded to Zenfolio didn't look right. I'll look again and see what I can find. Even I really don't care a lot for this image, but I do like certain aspects of it. the composition is what really saved the shot. Interestingly, I have been to this location 50 times before, but not quite sure I ever saw "this shot" in quite the way I did that day. My focal point was the best breaking water. Those water breaks are razor sharp.

It wasn't my best photo day, fighting to get a few shots between rains, and fighting stupid tourists smoking at the location. 2 smokers in less than 15 minutes. That really pisses me off in a public space with expensive camera gear out.

Ok, this one looks a bit better than what I didn't want to show at first...







Joe, your right, now I like this shot a lot... Thanks for pushing me a bit! :-)

Nice pics of your cute kids Zhang. Your rig looks great! You have 2 different hoods on in the photos, right?

nice focus accuracy, and separation of subjects against background, good color.

Damn Michael! I want a 35Cron 8 element!! Sweet setup and the M3, 50Rigid and 35Cron looks super minty!

Lovely shots of your kids, love the diagonal/triangular composition of both of them, excellent!

Here's one for a tit-tat for you. MY Viking inspired hot-rod Monochrom







Edit: Zeissman should be proud of me with my CZJ 50/2 Sonnar - the ORIGINAL and first version for Contax I RF

This thread is moving too fast

Joakim, I really like the industrial shot with the 28. Very nice framing.

Joe, crazy bokeh with the Nikkor. Love the last color portrait of your son.

Leonas, very nice portrait of the old man.

Allen, beautiful b/w flower shot. Superb tonality!

Phil, very nice tree trunk shot. Love the texture.

Ryan, the first color portrait is really fantastic.

Zhangyue, great shots of your kids. Always nice to see.

Joe, indeed I am very proud of you Be careful not to catch any fungus

PS: My Sonnar 85 is on the way to Oberkochen for focus calibration.

Thanks Edward, I'll get some UV light cabinets I'm sure they will do a good job servicing and calibrating your ZM85. Hope it comes back soon.

CZ Jena 50/2, the ORIGINAL Sonnar This copy is prewar uncoated version, circa 1936.
Here's 2 samples, first @f/2, second @f/4.

I have the 1.4x and it is possible to still kind of see the 50mm frame lines. IMO, it's a hassle if you're like me and shoot a lot of different lenses during a single outing, especially anything wider than 50mm. As was posted here a while ago, I think by Charles, the best solution for me was to find the correct diopter correction match for my eyesight. This was great when my RF was perfectly calibrated, but now it seems to be slowly drifting and I really have to focus by intuition, slightly shifting the RF convergence away from a perfect match.

Doug, you could open up the right side of deep shadows a bit and tone down the top left slightly without having to resort to HDR-style processing. BTW, IMO, I was much more prone to HDR-like high clarity processing with my ZM glass.. it just seemed to suit the mood of the rendering more. I've mellowed out somewhat with my Leica glass.

Nice gears, Ryan (that's insane!), Phil, Edwin and Michael!
Joe, that Sonnar looks awesome! Both the lens itself and the images. Is there much focus shift stopped down a couple stops? You're charting a very interesting and fast paced GAS course for us to follow!

Yes I was looking into getting one, but wasn't sure if the high price was worth it to get .15 more magnification over the 1.25, so far my eyes are fine with the 1.25, will see in a few yrs when my eyesight starts to degrade more

I bought the 1.4x on Monday as I thought it might help with the Sonnar 85. I think my focusing accuracy is exactly the same with and without. One important advantage though is that magnification gives a more natural view of shooting a telephoto lens, almost SLR like. Without it the 90mm frame is too small. However, I don't think I will ever use it for the 50 lens. I can barely see the frame lines.

I compared both and found that while the 1.25x allowed easier framing at 50mm, it didn't seem to be enough of a an improvement for focusing ease, compared to not using one. Granted, I bought the 1.4x primarily to use with 90mm. I guess it depends on what you're shooting too. A lot of my 90mm work is more landscape-like and usually stopped down, or near infinity, as a result, the magnifier was less useful than I thought it would be. For portraits I seem to prefer 50mm on the Leica. Maybe if I had a 75 Lux, I'd use it for that, but when I borrowed Andrew's, I never felt I had a really hard time focusing it because of the long focus throw. Some of the new, fast lenses with short focus throw are quite the PITA for nailing focus, it seems.
