airfrogusmc - I like the 4th shot the best. Second one is also a great moment.

joakim - Thanks, I liked the composition as well. It is a good example of flare though, as it's a big ghosty blob in the middle of the image. I'm excited to see everyone's fall pictures (well everyone who's not in Australia), your elmarit has a neat soft rendering.

Gary, those are great! BTW I haven't used an M8 in ages, loved how awfully quirky it was at the time. Wish I could find my old M8 images (most were shot with CV lenses).

This is my brother who lives in Cali BTW.

Allen - excellent set from the rodeo, like the first shot best

Peter - The first shot is excellent. Like the dreary look

Adam - love the signature of that APO Cron, the portrait of your brother and wife a few pages back have a great look to them. Very consistent

Michael - really like the shot of your daughter

Gary - nice shots with the M8, you find yourself taking it instead of the 240 in times that may not be 100% safe? Colors look great, you still remember to use filters? I know I would forget about that

Charles - shots from Ubud are very good. Like how you are using the 50 Cron. Very unique rendering, love how those old classic lens look

Mono shots

Michael - thanks again and I really like that second pic of your daughter. I tried to reprocessed them to see what the result would be. I'm fairly happy but pic #2 still needs some work. Some times I give myself a 5 minute PP limit.....
Charles - that bike shot is really neat. Makes me miss wandering the streets of Ubud... and Sanur...
Ryan - I sold the M8 a long time ago but actually should have kept it. Just don't want to collect too much gear. These pics were actually from 2011. Love the shots with the Mono!

rsolti13 - Thanks, I really like the lens. Wish I didn't, so I could sell it and make my bank account happy, but I like the lens. BTW, like both the mono images!

Charles - Third shots interesting, haven't been to Ubud yet.. I've spent time in Seminyak though.

zhangyue - You really know how to focus that 50 Lux... I like the second shot. Seriously, as I've said before focus puller skills

Thanks for the comments, Michael, Charles, Edward, Gary, Phil, Joakim and everyone else for the likes.

Luka, great set and beautiful colors! The red leaves on #1 just pop off my monitor and fell on my desk. It looks very 3D and as if the red leaves are floating a few mm above the picture, surreal! Love the flare on #4.
Phil, beautiful pics with the Nocti f1! Enjoy the lens
Allen, excellent set! #1,2 & 6 are my favorites.
Adam, that doesn't look like ordinary flare but a lens defect? Hope your 50AA comes back sorted, very nice soft muted colors with the 50AA, excellent shots.
Charles, more nice work with the 50DR. The ISO3200 shot looks very clean.
Peter, love that 90Cron B&W shot. How high up were you on this hike?
Joakim, nice fall colors with the 90Elmarit.
Gary, are you back in the Phillipines? M8 files still continue to impress, excellent set, 2nd and 3rd shot are my favorites.
Michael, excellent set with the 50Lux ASPH.
Ryan, another excellent set with the Monochrom!

I also wonder why Leica didn't design a f1.4 or even f2 lens for their S system? I don't care pixel, but rendering of DOF is the main reason I am interesting in MF system. D800 and Zeiss 55f1.4 give me another path to this for a lot lower price though

Michael, DOF for a 70mm f/2.5 is pretty shallow on medium format, but I agree a Summicron-S would be nice, more of a "statment" of Leica's capabilities in lens design. One other reason besides price could be size, as it is the S lenses are already quite large. Also with medium format, my limited experience is that the DOF transition is more gentle even with the S lenses, you don't get the sharp transition/ fall off, as say, the 50Lux ASPH, 0.95s or other modern Leica lenses.

Does anyone else find the M240 files really flat? (not in contrast but in 3D rendering). Compared the the M9 and S2 shots, I can't help but be underwhelmed by the M240 general rendering. Is it the CCD vs CMOS or something else?

I prefer the S2 colors best, its very accurate out of camera and doesn't need much pp'ing. At low ISO, the M9 CCD still has the crispiness that is slighly lacking from the M(240) but I think with some pp skills, most would be able to work out a nice workflow for the M(240).

I guess for S2 sensor, the f2.5 lens is not even f1.4 in 35mm yet, hence my complain, but I know the performance is there with f2.5 as I can see your beautiful pics...
I'd like to see S2 + 70 f2.5 compare with D800 +ZF55f1.4, but I know I will love the CCD sensor and shooting experience of bigger viewfinder of S2 for sure.

Question: How does one quickly embarrass himself quickly in front of some legendary photographers? Answer: Whip out a S2 and a gigantic lens and aim it them

With Alex Webb, Rebecca Noris Webb and Constantine Manos yesterday.

Taking some installation pics at Constantine Manos' exhibition in Provincetown which ended yesterday. Stunning work spanning over 50 years of his career.

Ryan, I was visiting Constantine Manos to see his exhibition, so happened that the Webbs were also in town and it was a happy coincidence.

I don't doubt the D800 with 55/1.4 would be stellar! Maybe with the new A7 it would be even better with EVF?

Thank Ryan, Gary, Adam and Joe And for all the likes too.
Ryan, very nice B&W images. Love the output of the M-M.

My Monochrom, is just about sold now on ebay! I have pre-ordered the Sony A7r, body only from my contact in Sony Brisbane. I feel this will be a worthwhile plunge, at least to try with the Leica lenses. The only issue is the A7r, does not have phase detection, so the AF will be slower, whereas the A7 does for the Zeiss lenses.

Gary, you must visit Bali again!

Adam, you would love Ubud. More authentic Balinese culture, and wonderful places to stay

Joe, wonderful images!!! What a great opportunity to meet these legends

Shots from Water Temple. M240 and 50 Cron Rigid DR. The second is Marisa taking a shot with the RX1R. M240 21 SEM.

Joe - what a neat opportunity! A wealth of knowledge amongst those three people...
Charles - superb set. So much to see in Bali if you get off the beaten path. Also a popular getway spot for Aussies!

A few from a recent trip to Kelowna, BC. A little gloomy weather but fun nonetheless...

Wow, Gary more great shots with the 21SEM. I keep telling myself that my ZM25 is wide enough, and if by chance it doesn't work well enough on the M240, perhaps a Elmar-M 24/3.8 ASPH....

Thanks Gary! Great set of images When visiting Bali now, most will try and keep away from the Aussie crowd, particularly Kuta and Legion.

Another shot from the Water Temple, an elegant older lady helping with the food offerings for the temple. M240 and 50 Cron Rigid DR.

Guys, great shots..
Gary, nice 21SEM shots, Charles the old lady shots awesome. Joe the second shot's great.

A7r is the new full frame sony mirrorless NEX type camera? And Zeiss has already made a 55 1.8 for it.. A different 55mm lens then the 55 1.4 that's coming out?!

Off topic, but is anyone going to pickup the 55 1.4 from Zeiss for Canon or Nikon?

Gary - absolutely fantastic set! I love what you do with the 21 SEM...the pictures look so crisp. #2 and #3 are excellent....but the last of the doors is my favorite. Great set overall

Charles - the 50 Cron is definitely a portrait lens, the way it renders is wonderful. The image of the lady above is great
