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!

Agreed, my ZM50P's flare resistance was its biggest advantage over my 50 Summmicron IV, although it seemed to have a little more CA than the Summicron, so that was the trade off. Both are great lenses.

Hi guys,

Nice work.. All of you.

Been busy shooting around S.F. / L.A. it's great here, the light is amazing for photography.
I look like a much more competent photographer now

Anyway, Charles I seen your macros and I want more info.. Please explain what lens, and what conversion you're talking about. I'd love to hear more, and maybe see pictures of the item in question. The shots look great with the M BTW!

Allen, more great street and cityscape photos. I particularly like the white shoes/white line shot on p794 and the one with 2 lamp posts on the following page.
Katie, I like your b&w conversions. The photos of your son in from of (hypnotized by ? ) the TV are very good.
Michael, beautiful b&w photos of your daughter on p724
Ryan, great set from the birthday celebration. The50 Nokton and the MM also seems like a great combo.
Peter, very nice b&w landscapes.
Gary, great photos from that excursion. Favorite is the first with the Oly 28 and also the abstract one with the 21 SEM. Very good composition with the Voigtlander 15mm, I also have that lens but I haven't gotten many keepers (so far).
Edward, great portrait.
Charles, the 50 Cron Rigid looks like a great lens with beautiful colors. and with macro capabilities too! Great photos from the Swell Sculpture festival.
Bruno, very nice b&w

And thanks for comments and likes!

Thank you Joakim and Adam, for your kind comments

Bruno, very nice B&W captures.
Adam, the macro shots are with 50 Summicron Rigid Dual Range. This lens is an extraordinary lens, made from brass, and is wonderfully engineered. The lens normally will not work fully with the M9/M240. It will work in macro mode, and in normal mode from 1m to 4m. If you focus any further, the near focusing/macro mode cam interferes. Since this lens, now with the M240 is best used with LV in macro mode, the cam can be modified marginally still maintain full functionality and will then work with the M240. The macro range is from 47cm to 88cm, while normal is from 1m to infinity. The beauty of the focusing ring is, it is slightly longer, but very smooth and accurate. I have also found that in RF mode, the lens is very accurate to focus too

If you're like me and want to try one of those film-pack plugins but are not willing to pay for it until you tried it yourself there is now an excellent opportunity to do so since DxO and Sony is giving one away for free. I don't know how it stand up against the ones from VSCO but hey, it's free

Here is one of mine converted with the Fuji Velvia 50 preset
