Thank you very much Ryan, Charles, Jabber, Ron and Peter for the nice comments! Greatly appreciated!

Ryan, if I expose correctly, I can shoot iso 2500 on the M9 without a problem. Easier said than done
Charles, I was under the impression the RX1 was even more handholdable than the M9. As for the Nocti, that would be when I make my next big sale
Katie, you seem to have already mastered your new camera well. Great colors!
Gary, those would be great to be printed really large. Love the 2nd shot.
Lenticular, lovely images. Love the 3rd shot, and the 1st has great potential.
Peter, Fantastic images. Love them all!!!

Thanks all! VSCO is fun to use

Katie - very nice! The two of the boy are excellent. Most Voigtlanders do have a tendency for the purple fringing, but the 28 f/1.9 and 28 f/2 are very bad at this. Should be mostly correctable in LR

Gary - I agree with Edward, would make for very nice prints. And at ISO 3200...very nice. What was the shutter on those? I really like the stars

lenticular - nice post, my favorite being the one of the boat. Neat with the water spraying

Peter - excellent posts...the pic of the food is jumping out of the screen. Every one of the shots though very nicely done

Thanks sooo much airfrogusmc, Gary, Jabberwockt, rscheffler, charlesK, lenticular11, Peter, Edward and Ryan.

I hope to learn everyone's names soon, so I don't have to make noted of all these weird ID names!

Gary - Are those at Yellowstone? We were just there in June...

Peter - WOW is right! Spectacular shots. I don't know how you get that close to the wildlife - I had no luck when we were at Yellowstone (other than Bison).

Ryan - More VSCO? I used the film 01 set for my previous post. I like to use them as a starting point in my workflow...

Thanks for the comments and likes!

rsolti, I like the poodle shot!

Katie, thanks a lot, regarding wildlife I was just lucky maybe they were no shy at all because the where juvenile capricorns!?

Katie:congr! for your question: I only air blow sensor very occasionally and leave minor dust to PP if I have to. about heat, that should not be the case, the only reason I can think of is its metal and leather body, once you hold it for a while, you feel its warmer than others.
A tip for you is use costumer profile to save lens code if your lens is not coded. that is faster than manually change each time changing lens.

Great works, everyone. I full enjoy them.
Peter, excellent work as always! beautiful!

Ryan, love your last set. My favourite is the 1st shot followed closely by the 2nd. Nice job!
Zhangyue, excellent set as well. Love the 1st and last shots. The 1st has such a beautiful tonality and great composition. The 2nd has a very strong composition with the frame divided into 3 horizontal sections broken by the human figure.
Katie, you asked previously about leather cases. I just received my JNK case for the M9 and I love it. It's the one without built in grip and tripod screw. It fits the M9 like a glove and preserves the simple shape of the camera. A bit pricey at 240$ but worth every cent.

Thanks Edward for the info. I need to decide if I would like a grip or not ... time will tell I suppose!

Great photos guys, this thread moves so fast sometimes.

Another set from Shetland, this time from a small island named Bressay not far from the main city Lerwick where we stayed. All with the 24 Elmar.

Thanks all. Katie, not VSCO this time around

Michael, #1 is just awesome. The leaves look normal size until I scrolled down and see your boy. Then it shows the size. #4 has great color to it, like the shot very much

Joakim, without seeing what lens was used my head was saying 24 Elmar...has that signature. One of the best landscape lenses I have ever used. #2 is my favorite

rsolti13, tried VSCO 04 after seeing some of the striking contrast and color in your pictures. Maybe I took the wrong approach because I used the VSCO presets to reprocess a few of the my pictures that I like the best, rather than just taking pictures that I has not PPed before. My conclusion was that M9 files are very easy to process with LR5 to get a slide film look and that VSCO 04 didn't add anything to the process, but actually (1) produced some colors with over the top saturation (usually yellows) that had to be then dealt with, and (2) offered so many choices of presets that using the sliders in LR5 was simpler and faster — sort of like Eggleston's dictum that he tries not to take more than one version of a shot because it's too difficult and time-conuming afterward to figure out which one to use. Am I missing something here in my approach to VSCO 04?

The picture below is an another example of nightshots I've been taking not using the external 21mm finder (a "no-finder shot"), holding the camera at chest height and pointed a bit upward. This is using the "Shoot at ISO 640 and Push in Post" technique, with the Exposure on the main subjects at the right pushed 4.15 stops, equivalent to ISO 11,776.

Mitch, not all files will work with VSCO 04. By far, this is the pickiest of all the VSCO offerings. The file has to be able to handle high contrast, high saturation. For the shooting I do around town, this works great. For night shooting, forget about it. You will lose far too much detail with the high contrast and deep blacks. As far as moving a slider or two and getting the same result - no way. The colors, saturation, vividness, deep contrast...all this would take far more work than just a slider or two. I will say though, the files that it hits right it does a great job. I took 3 random files and applied VSCO 04 to the three of them and did end up finding something for all three. When it hits right, it almost feels like the file has more dof just from the processing. I really like the vividness of these presets

Thanks guys
Peter, wow...superb series!!! I really love the layering of your mountain scapes and the PP'ing.
Lenticular, nice set!
Ryan, the love the tones with the M-M, and in particular #1
Michael, what a great set! My favourites are #1 and 3, as almost look surreal

Edward, the RX1R is lighter, but without a EVF and using the LV, the ergonomics of using low shutter speeds is not easy. I have found it much easier with the M9P with the shutter on silent. The M240 has virtually no vibration, and it is easier to hold at low shutter speeds.

Joakim, really nice shots!

Mitch, nice capture!
Ryan, excellent series! Love the before and after comparisons, and the bee in flight motion captured in the first shot

I have been offered 2 copies of second 21 SEM's, which I will try out this next week. I am not sure, as I prefer the 24 Lux for WA work. Any thoughts here??

Shots from last night M240 50 Lux ISO 3200 and f/1.4

rsolti13, thanks for taking the trouble of posting the before and after VSCO 04 comparisons. Do you find that you expose some shots differently with the presets in mind, or do you think it's worthwhile to do so, in which case, how would you adjust exposure. I find that getting a "slide look" in LR5 is easy, with the most important step being to pull the Black slider back into negative number territory after clicking "Automatic." But I agree with you, it would be very difficult to get the wonderful colors and contrast of the shot of your daughter,

Charles, good image quality on the M240 ISO 3200, but I still have reservations about the color rendition. Have you tried the VSCO 04 presets with M240 files?

Ryan - yes, thanks for the before and afters.
Charles - your wife(?) is so pretty... and those files look great to me!
Mitch - thanks for being so helpful!

Playing with the Elmar 9cm tonight -- we had 103 degrees, then a storm that knocked out the power! I managed to snap a few shots using some OCF (as shooting inside with this lens isn't easy). This one processed in VSCO 3 - gave it some polaroid feel.

Mitch and Katie, thank you
Mitch, I have the VSCO presets, but until I'm familiar with the new PP'ing with M240, I will keep with Lr5.2/PS6 for now
Katie, Marisa is my fiancee, an engineer also, from Brazil. I am certain she would appreciate the compliment! I love your low key shot, keeping the mystery within.

Shot this afternoon with the trial 21 SEM and M240 200 ISOO f/3.4 wide open.

Ryan - the SS on the first pic was 1/12 and the second was 1/30s. The benefits of shooting a Leica!
Charles - testing out the 21SEM!?! I knew it was just a matter of time....

Yet another hiking pic...
