Thanks all for the comments and likes
Dexter, very nice shots with the 75APO. Great lens for portraits.
Gary, another excellent set with ZM25. First two are my favorites. Last one is funny.
Ron, #1, 2, 3, 5 are my favorites from this set, especially #3, simply beautifully captured.
Fursan, all excellent!
Joe, like the first factory visit shot, you also hit focus with the guy walking!
Thanks Adam, oftentimes with moving subjects, I find the rear LCD sharp enough to focus without having to engage focus magnifier. I normally shoot with the auto magnifier off on the Nocti as there is enough subject separation to tell apart the plane of focus, otherwise the auto magnification feels quite disruptive to the flow for me.
Is the VF-2 as laggy as the screen LV? the screen LV is SO LAGGY i only use it for shots where I can't use the RF...if the VF-2 has the same lag, It will just end up gathering lint on my camera bag.
I think VF-2 has the same lag as LCD but what I dislike most about the EVF is that it is buggy, even after firmware updates. The screen sometimes hangs or shows weird refresh/line skipping, and sometimes the contacts come lose and I have to push/move the EVF to get an image to show. This is with the cheaper Oly VF-2 though, not sure if the Leica branded ones have better QC/ It does work great where I can tilt EVF for composing hard to shoot angles.
Don't have much exciting stuff to share. No much time shooting as well. Have to bare with me with family pics. Again 50lux ASPH +M9 :
My only lens nowdays
Michael, somewhat disagree with your statement as your family pics are always beautiful, including this last set. How's the 50Lux ASPH nowdays after adjustment? Must be good since you seem to be using this more than your 50Cron Rigid? Did you buy the A7 or A7R? I think one of those might work great for your R lenses? If I had a stash of R lenses, I would probably get a A7/R to try out, especially 36MP on the 7R to see how those R lenses hold up? Otherwise a 7R with Otus 55/1.4 would also be mouth watering.
If anyone has been following the a7 threads, in one Edward stated he was going to send his a7 off to Maxmax to remove the AA and replace with a thinner cover glass. That's a mod that would really interest me... Unfortunately it seems his M9 has developed a problem and now he may hold off getting the a7 converted until the M9 is fixed.
Sorry to hear Edward's problem with the M9 sensor. Hope it's fixed soon. Also interesting to see how the A7 sans AA filter will look.
A few more with 50 0.95 shot in the evening. Nothing like a nice cold glass of beer after meetings in hot humid weather
