Charles - cool set and really like the first one.
Charlie - Really like the portrait's rendering. I've also tried the TE135 and had mixed feelings about it. Optically it seemed pretty reasonable though I think modern glass is better. I haven't tried the APO, so no idea if there is any real world benefit to it, optically. I agree about the size, which ultimately doesn't appeal to me.

Thanks for the additional information. I'll have to keep an eye out for the Voigtlander as it sounds promising. Regarding the 90 Summarit: I'm not sure its flare resistance is anything extraordinary. It will flare in the right situations.

For example, the two images below, which are both outtakes, so please don't give them any creative consideration. The point is one has very strong flare with only a slight change in framing.

Some more from the M240 while out in the woods down by the marsh:

















First two with 50 Lux ASPH, the last with 90 Summarit. I believe all were wide open.

Joe, here's my park scene that came to mind in your first of the previous B&W series..

Charles - very nice!
Ron - looks like you are getting the hang of the M240 super quick.
Michael - love your shots from China. Kind of a Velvia look to these…

I hope I have not bored you all yet of my Yellowstone pics. A few more…

Wow, this thread moves fast. Everyone has such wonderful images ... I am glad to have a hard time keeping up, which means that there's lots to look at.

Allen - wonderful set. I have always loved your work and I've also kept up with your posts. These are so cohesive and work great in a set. The book will be fantastic.

Chicago is far, but would be fun to do as a group!

Phil - Love your B&W work. Simple, clean and smooth.

Nico - #2 and #5 in the set are my favorites. Love the processing.

Joe - snow images rock! Great job.

Charles - love the warm images you're posting.

Ron - all your work is fantastic. So soft and pretty.

Zhangyue - as I say almost every time I post, your color work is so inspiring. If you'd be willing to do a tutorial on your processing, I would take it!!!!

My Daddy turned 70 on Saturday.

@Zhangyue Wow!! Very impressive photography
@ Charles K very nice: love the car and #2 esp.
@ Ron TY for flare info, well it has to be better than the TE 90 . Very nice shots I agree the TE135 has a nice render.

Today I had the lanthar 90
here is full size landscape for reference at f/11:

LOOK

and some shots:

L1004368 by unoh7, on Flickr


L1004384 by unoh7, on Flickr
above:also worth a look at f/4.8
mild crop:

L1004383 by unoh7, on Flickr


L1004379 by unoh7, on Flickr


L1004375 by unoh7, on Flickr

No slouch, it appears

In an ideal world we'd all have the new leica macro elmar 90, which is even smaller and lighter, for the portable 90. But this lens might be close or even equal for 350USD. At that price it's hard to go wrong with this level of performance. Worst case you loose 50 bucks when you sell. My 28 cron is worth 500 less on the street than I paid for it used in 2011. (SO i can't sell that thing )

PS Katie, sweet shot!!!

Katie thank you so much for the kind words. You are always welcome to come up and we will hit the streets and not the touristy spots LoL.

I have a very good friend that is from here but now lives in Dallas/Fort Worth and we might come down that way. maybe get to Austin. I love Texas. I know, crazy, but I even love the panhandle to (Llano Estacado)...My father used to have a summer place way down south in the valley near Rio Hondo.

Thanks everyone for the kind words!

Michael - I enjoy seeing those daily life moments and like the first and third of the 'experimental' images.
Gary - keep 'em coming - third one in particular has a very nice feel and colour palette. So far the M9-M240 transition has been pretty smooth. No regrets, other than my budget... As I've probably mentioned, I'm finding the live view/EVF option handy for framing and focus confirmation, when needed. Nice to be able to fall back to it, but have been primarily shooting with the rangefinder/OVF. So far post production hasn't been a chore to adapt. Maybe it's because it's new, but I find I'm pushing the files around a lot more than I have lately with the M9. Not sure if that's a good or bad sign, but at least it's not because I'm fighting the files.
Katie - fun shot! Is he wondering why you stuck his birthday candles in a huge bowl of dip? Looks like quite the massive and tasty spread you had for the party!
Charlie - thanks for the additional images. The lens does look really good. There is some CA in the landscape shot but the Summarit also has some and of course it's no problem to clean up in post. Have you noticed any signs of purple fringing around bright highlights or high contrast transitions at wider apertures? It tends to be a Voigtlander characteristic with a number of their lenses, including pretty much all of their fast glass.

Some trees... kept the downsizing sharpening off for these to keep them from going too crunchy...

@Gary, missed those last yellowstone pics till now. 1 & 2 outstanding
@ Charles nice mood in the seascape

@ Ron love the trees, am trying to learn to shoot them better. I will keep an eye out for purple fringe.

Very nice Mirek, the oof tree in foreground goes great with the shot

Charles your killing me with those Rigid DR images great stuff! love the car on the roof, awesome awesome colors BTW!

Unoh very nice last image, breathtaking!

zhangyue another fine series! I'm really enjoying your M9 shots, def. prefer them over the M, love your high contrast images, great

Gary nice YNP series, you really know how to work those whites!

Happy birthday to your Dad Katie! Love your work! very natural esp. your B and W's, your work makes me feel like I am there, a rare gift these days in photography

Again Unoh cool bike, thought the fork was all wood until I took a closer look!

Thanks for the likes, this thread moved fast today, must be nice to go out shooting on a Monday, while I'm at my desk sleeping at work 'Dilbert style'

Gary, I never bored to see such fine landscape shots, 3rd one is my fav.
Charles, Great color and mood.
Katie, You dad must love that photo. I appreciate your nice comment. but I am not that good I learned a lot from here in FM. for example, Ron has given us many good tricks in this thread over the years. As for my color image, For above images, I start with VSCO film 04 preset. Gary has been spot on about Velvia as starting point. though I always tweak HSL pannel and curve to my like depend on content. There is no secret or rule
Ron, like the first one.
Mirek, Nice composition.

Here is one from Laoshan, Qingdao.

Phil, the 50 Cron Rigid is a very unique lens. Amazing as it is 5 decades old! The DR with the close range is excellent too
Mirek, very nice angle.
Michael, superb image!!! Love mood and mist in the back drop

Thanks for comments Michael, Katie and everyone else for the likes

Ron, the flare on your TE135 actually looks nice on those shots
Michael, those composition experiments looks nice, especially like the vertical composition with the branches. The ZM21 shot looks great, really nice colors too.
Gary, excellent Yellowstone pics! My favorite is the 35Cron shot, love it! I can't wait to see green pastures after all the snow we had this year.
Katie, congrats on your dad's birthday!
Charlie, CV90 looking good and sharp.
Charles, another excellent series with the 50DR, renders beautifully.

Allen: Fabulous photos and presented very well. Simply amazing 'on the wall' material. I also love the images where you have captured the shadows of people walking across the frame. (Interesting points on the RFF "Why Leica" thread as well )

Nico: I love the way the colors look in your images, not over saturated but deliciously rich. I love the second one (Reflections). Should you have been in the reflection as well, esp. from your position? Somehow, I am still to get the
colors to my liking, so will be grateful for any pointers.

Charlie: I like your commentary on the lenses. So, whats your take on the 90mm FL? Have you finalized on a particular lens? I'm on the lookout for a 90mm as well and then my travel kit will be complete (25, 35, 50, 90)

Joe: awesome BW with the 35FLE. Love the first and second...
Phil: I liked the ones with the 50rigid a couple of pages ago. Loved the one with the bulb and the glasses in the fountain.

Ron, yeah, I guess the model of shopping malls is pretty similar, but this one is the probably the closest to what you'd normally see near you. My logic was to shoot a couple of times in front of the "mall cops". If they don't raise an issue then I'll shoot till some objects. The objection was raised by the donut fellow :-/
I saw the photos where you have demonstrated the flare issue of the 90summarit. I guess it will be interesting to wedding or family photogs who would look to include the flare. Looks a lot like those kind of shots.

Charles: Nice one with the 50cron Rigid and thanks for sharing the PP tip. Love those GC photos. I love the way the water looks turquoise and has the shine from the light. Amazing.

Michael: Love those shots from China. I agree with Gary as it does look a lot like slide. China is one the place I'd like to visit, maybe in the next couple of years.Lovely last image.

Gary, I love those landscapes with the 90 and that exactly why I need a 90mm. I love the landscape I get from the 100MP so I need something similar in the M mount.

Katie, interesting shot, nice moment captured.

Whew... Long commentary there. I hope I've not missed out anyone. Some really great shots and I believe in taking time out to comment as there is so much to learn from each contribution.

Few humble shots, this time from a 'sniping' session in Jaipur.
All with the 50cron rigid. I hope the colors look ok. I'm still working to get the right formula..
There are quite a few shots where there is some purple/magenta colors in areas where you don't expect them. There are not from the equipment and existed on the location. Annoying and I am figuring a way out to remove them...

#4 I wish there was a better way to get around than a cycle rickshaw. Not a great way to make a living. I tried to get only the cycles in the frame with least other vehicles...

Thanks everyone for the comments. In the photo, my Dad was blowing out his candles in a bowl of banana pudding (he doesn't eat cake!).

Zhangyue, I use VSCO also, but only have 1 and 3. I have been looking at 4 for the slide film simulations, maybe I will bite the bullet and get it finally... thanks for the info; and you ARE that good. I will go back in the thread and read Ron's posts. He does fabulous color work, also (along with Muc Martin - yes, thanks for the compliment!)

Uhoh, I don't know how you can survive that cold ... I have been more miserable this winter than EVER before. You, too, Gary. Just looks so cold there. Don't you guys ever dream of moving to Hawaii?

I am very comfortable with B&W and prefer it; but am working on my color images. I like them tweaked just a bit - and know that I don't like overly bright images. From there; I am lost. Here are a few with the M-E and CV 35 1.2 from yesterday.

Katie - I like how your 1st shot turned out. It has a look of film in days gone by. I like how it turned out.

Manoj - the last shot has an interesting composition, with layering diamonds from ground level right up to the top level of the building. Really adds to the effectiveness instead of seeing the traditional square box look.

Joe - nice effect with a slumbering goose. The yellow beak really stands out. Typically ones eyes are drawn to red, but the in this shot I was drawn first to the yellow.

Ron - I like how you contrasted the golden light with the brown of the tree and the sky in your 3rd shot.

Charles - nice turquoise colors in the ocean waters. I really like the color you capture in the water contrasted to the rocks onshore.

zhangyue - Next shot of the silent water, nice colors makes me reflect on one of my favorite places to go shoot, Big Springs Provincial Park, but alas its winter here not much clear open water here.

Marek - nice cools color combinations and capturing the expedia sign on the building they all blens together well

Gary - I am never bored seeing pictures of Yellowstone. It is such a diverse beautiful place.

Ryan - Lovely effect with flare. I like it too.
