p.808 #1 · Leica M8/M9/X1 Picture Thread


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

Some recent stuff for some friends. Left the 135mm entered as the focal length for the whole shoot, so I'm guessing at lenses. Few of my boy at the end.
