Great work everyone and thanks for the comments and likes!

rsolti, the tours I am doing are between 80-110Km oneway from home...not exactly in the neighborhood!

Charles, interesting taxi...he is not driving right? On the portrait it seems your technique as the equipment are spot on!

Ryan I like the second shot the best, the Nokton is better then I'd imagine at certain distances!



You know...after a few days of testing my joy was brought back to earth...but I have found that this lens is beyond excellent in 95%+ of the situations out there. I was very pleased with how the lens rendered the following:


























The only place I can find this lens really struggles is the bokeh when you have the focal point about 15-20 ft away and you have something busy such as foilage in the background at a much further distance behind the subject (50ft away plus). Outside of that, hard to find fault with anything about this lens

^Thanks Ron! I haven't had enough time with the M to give you a solid opinion but so far so good. In terms of files it lacks in dynamic range and high iso compared to the D800 but it has nicer color (although not as pleasing as the M9 colors). Here are two more seascapes from a recent trip taken with the M and WATE.

The color rendition is the critical aspect as far as I'm concerned, and am looking forward to seeing more on this from you and Adam.

As for me, I'm back in the daylight...

Thank you Ryan, Phil, Joakim, Adam and Peter

Ryan, the M-M with the Nocti f/1.0 is a killer, but it works really well with the M9P for night shots, not having to go far above ISO 640. The M-M is a keeper

Joakim, the colors for the portrait are as is, under the roof obviously with a sky light, and side lighting. The colors are mildly saturated, contrast and brightness increased all in Lab color space with CS6. I originally started with Lr, then progressed to C1 Pro for colors, with CS in Lab space. I am once again, finding a lot of improvement in CS6 in Lab, exporting from Lr5

Ryan, love the kid shoot! Very nice PP'ing too The 50 Nokton II looks to be a great lens, on par with the ZM 50 Sonnar, without the focus shift.
Joakim, nice B&W conversions.
Alberto, nice moody portrait!

Joakim, excellent shots of the old Chevy!
Allen, nice framing
Leonas, nice portrait!
rirakuma, love the colors in these seascapes! Obviously time lapse shots
Mitch, nice daytime capture!

Phil - Another cool one. These would look good in a book together.

rirakuma - love the colors!

leonasj - Nice portrait. I have a love hate relationship with the 90APO.. Wish I had the time for it.

Ryan - When the Nokton is at it's best, it's so close to the 50lux that you couldn't justify the price gap, but when it's at its worst... Honestly, it's still pretty good, just not what I'd be looking for in a lens. I'm just having a harder time putting my finger on WHY I don't like the lens every time you shoot with it. It is growing on me, that's for sure.

Elisemkii - Nice film like quality, I had the Summarit, loved it.. Thinking of getting it again over the 75APO, but need to give the APO more time before I abandon it. I just feel the weight of the 75APO, and think to myself that there was no real reason why I sold the 75rit in the first place.

airfrogusmc - Love the dog

joakim - Interesting car, the horn is a pretty neat detail.

Mitch Alland - Definitely a good call getting the 21 SEM, you are using it stopped down, which you predicted you would most of the time, so you've saved money and weight! How you liking the lens so far?

Thanks Adam

Mitch cool daylight shot, no worries on high iso here huh?

rirakuma beautiful! esp. that 2nd

Awesome rendering on the handsome young man

Cool street shot Allan, did she know you were there?

Ryan nice rendering samples, I need to take mine out for a spin, the nocti is spoiling me

joakim another fine series, 2nd shot for me

Actually not the 21 SEM, it's the Elmarit-21 ASPH, which I've always liked. I've been using it at f/2.8 for the night shots, but for a shot like the one above ("Me Tarzan, You Jane"), I had it stopped down because I had to make sure, in a dynamic, situation, to make sure I got the focus on Jane's face. I think that the difference between this lens and the SEM in terms of sharpness is so minor that it's not worth worrying about; and I prefer, for night photography to have the extra 1/2 stop, instead of the f/3.4 of the 21 SEM.

Adam, it's the model that was discontinued when the 21 SEM came out. I don't know what the used price is but, to me, it's a very desirable lens.

Charles, That is excellent portrait, not surprising from you.

Ryan, Enjoy your family series. I agree on color and process are both nice.
Joakim, nice B&W conversions. The car looks great. Which version of 35lux you have?
Alberto, another nice portrait!

Allen, is that a reflection?
Leonas,looks very sharp!
rirakuma, Great! great color, I am surprised to hear your comment about color of D800 vs M, though.
Mitch, great 'am' shot
Phil, Another two nice BW. I echo your enthusiasm on MM with 50f1, your photos have been proven they are one of best combo out there.


More from Kauai with 50lux

the pics from my only 3 hours private shooting for a whole week there. That is the only time I was able to use tripod with Leica R and 6D. However, all M shots are still hand holding. zoom in 100%, they still look great as always! 50lux didn;t let me down this time.

These are not from Magic hour, around 9 to 12am. But the light still great there, and rain on and off all the time.
