Gary, it is really nice to see, how much time you spend with your kids in the outdoors! Especially today, where are so much people influenced by electronics and loose more and more the feeling for the beauty of nature.

Charles, Congratulation of 50cron Rigid. A lens I have loved for a while the first portrait is great, very good use of light, really adding depth here. Keep them coming.
Gary, I fully agree Peter's comments, that is what we bought our expensive toy for Those will be good memory living with us.

Here is one 35cron V1 WO from last weekend, a small festival in here Mountain View.

Thank you Edward, Gary, Peter, Adam, Charles

Adam - I agree with you on the Voigts....the more you use them though the better you will be able to use them to their strengths

Gary - nice shots from the outdoors, particularly like the last SEM shot. That lens looks so crisp, I am able to pick out your images from it immediately. Love the rendering

Charles - nice job with the 50 Rigid! Really like the two girls on the beach. I am looking forward to seeing more from this lens

Edward - Great portrait! 50 Planar is an excellent lens for portraits....BUT....where has that 85 Sonnar been hiding? I haven't seen any shots from it lately

50 Nokton II on Mono

Thank you for your comments Charles and Ryan!

Charles, in the last set, the rendering looks actually very modern. This lens is very versatile and the colors are gorgeous.

Ryan, the Nokton has also some classic rendering that I really like, and it works so well in b/w. I love the white fence shot. The tonality is just superb.

I haven't been using the 85 Sonnar recently, only because with RF you tend to use either 50 or 35 most of the time. I should try to use it more often.

Here's an interesting flare comparison of several M mount 50s including the AA by Erwin Puts: http://www.imx.nl/photo/leica/the-flare-issue-a-lab-repor.html

Thanks for the likes and positive comments everyone! Outdoor time with the kids is a priority in our house and everyone always has a good time. That is once you get past all the complaining beforehand.

Edward - thanks for that flare article. The ZM50P is such a solid performer...

Thank you Ryan and Edward
Ryan, wonderful rendering with the Nokton II. Excellence balance of tonality with the fence shot.

Edward, the ZM 50 Planar is a great lens, and so often overlooked. Thank you for sharing the link to the test results by Erwin, on flaring.
The 50 Cron Rigid is a very interesting lens. It is sharp on detail, lower contrast, glows in the background, and can render almost like an oil painting. It does flare, and has some very interesting personalities It is a great lens too, for B&W conversions.

Pulling out the CV15 once again. Just don't use it much due to the massive color shift on the edges. Has anyone used a LR plugin to try and fix this with lenses? I have been trying Cornerfix but just can't get the results I want. When I get frustrated, I just convert to B&W.

Gary, awesome shot! Love the detail and texture, so surreal.

Finally arrived today, the 1958 50 Cron Rigid DR. I set this lens in macro mode, and here some first shots at f/2.0. The lens will be sent to Camera Clinic to be modified and CLA'd. The lens is all brass and is an amazing piece of engineering. The lens will be fully functional when it returns, both in macro and normal mode

Gary, Charles, you're most welcome. It is indeed a very interesting comparison, and to be honest, sometimes it is nice to have some flare in the photos for an atmospheric effect, but my ZM lenses, not only the planar, are difficult to flare, and when they do it looks like a very subdued effect that is not really interesting.

Gary, love the surrealistic b/w shot with the CV 15. It's only missing a dark black sky As for fixing color shift, I gave up on that long time ago, but I realized it is more difficult to get proper profiles with cornerfix. The adobe plug in is more efficient and consistent. You should try that if you haven't already.

Charles, awesome set! It's nice to see macro shots with an M

man another convert to the church of the DR build quality, huh?

and as far as flare goes, absolutely the ZM50P is the best I've ever used with light sources in frame. I have a picture shot directly into the setting sun with one and it's ridiculous how little visible flare there is. it's on film though, so I'll refrain from posting it. you can see it here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pmcmanis/6329652148/ should you desire.

btw let us not forget how well the 50P handles color. this is a consideration not always given and Zeiss pointed it out to me. I shoot very little color but the ZM50P did not disappoint on any occasion; it has the best blue handling I've seen from a non-APO lens.

I miss my M2 guys =/

Gary, very cool shoot with great impact! Besides from cornerfix I heard positive comments about the alpa lens corrections application ( http://www.alpa.ch/en/products/tools/alpa-tools/alpa-lens-corrector-product.html ). I just looked through the supported lenses, they have Leica, Zeiss but no Voigtländer lens on their list.

Charles - fantastic shots! I love the dreamy creamy look...
Gary - I haven't used anything yet, but here are some of my shots with the CV 15. I basically used a gradient to lower the magenta cast on the left side of the image... my cheap and easy fix! Of course, I prefer almost all my shots in B&W, so it doesn't matter to me sometimes!
