Color is so overrated. I think you found your calling.

Thanks very much everyone!

Gary and Nico - I use the 11134 21/2.8 non-ASPH code for the CV12 (and 15) and it seems to work quite well. On the M9 that particular lens code seemed to be one of the best for a wide variety of wide angle lenses. I'm not sure coding makes that much of a difference on the M240... I believe it helps to pull the focus back off infinity a bit. As we all know, color shift and smearing is worst at infinity, if it's going to be a problem. I think for the image above I set it at 2m. This is something I also found worked with the GXR M module to avoid edge color shift and slightly improve edge sharpness.

Nico - great set again. Love your sense of colour and composition. The ZM25 looks to be another lens to put on the acquisition list! Thanks also for your comment about my a7 reviews - glad it was of help.
Mike - very gritty and powerful. Congrats on the 75!
Gary - Very nice again with the Canon 50. So, you gonna be going to work or calling in sick to watch the game?

Thursday was a really dreary, drab day until mid afternoon when the rain we were supposed to get arrived as lovely snow. Yes, more snow! Seems to never end this winter... though now it's pouring rain and the basement is a bit wet... Went out for a coupe hours... wasn't too cold but around freezing and pretty wet. I was frequently wiping off the camera and EVF, lenses, etc. All worked pretty well though the camera did lock-up once. Not sure why and don't think I lost any images. By the end the OVF eyepiece was fogged up - always seems to happen in this kind of cold/wet weather - at least had the EVF as a fallback option.

Theera, great portrait set.
Charles, also a great portrait and very nice rendering from the Noctilux.
Ron, great use of angle with the puddle. It really looks like the street is flooded. From your last set the I really like the second one because it looks like a sketch.
Gary, great use of negative space in that b&w
nicoimages, well done on the #1. When is the London subway so empty?
Mike, nice portrait with the 75 cron. I'm a little interested in that lens myself.

Hi Edward, can you tell me which shop that you dealt with and what is the price of a used M240? I think we can buy brand new M240 at around 230000 baht in HK as the baht seems to depreciate recently. I have a friend living in HK and he can bring the camera to Bangkok instead of shipping it here and pay hefty tax.

Beautiful Gary.

Ron, I bet you were the only one out photographing in that weather! Pretty pictures, but my nightmare as far as weather is concerned...

Gary: nice composition, you do so well in architecture. the canon 50 f/1.4 LTM must be one of the great bargains in M-mount glass ...

Ron: always enjoy snow shots. nice use of the "forlorn" goals too

Ron & Edward & Charles & others: ditto on the appreciation for testing and sharing experiences with the new sony A7 cameras, saving me a lot of time and expense

The snow is back in Stockholm but with temperatures above zero it doesn't add much white, at least not in the central parts of the city. M9 and 35 Lux.

Sweden is ready for the Olympic is hockey final, hurray! Let's see who the opponent will be...

Oh, I thought the final match is happening in an hour? Well, at least here it's being hyped as THE game. I like that one Joakim - she looks cold and the falling snow adds to it.

Thanks everyone for your comments!

Haven't done benches for a while...



























M240 & 50 Lux ASPH for first two, 90 Summarit, 28 Cron for last two.

Hi Teera,

I think 230,000 baht is an excellent price. I can get it new in Bangkok for around 256,000 baht at best. Do you think your friend will be willing to help? That would be a huge favor.

Ordered...I've gotten used to the red dot, but I do think the black dots look better.

Thanks Gary

I took the day off. I went out to shoot the sunrise near Banff, and then headed back to Canmore to watch the game on an outdoor screen. It was a great time and the result I hoped for. Canada vs Sweden is going to be an incredible game!

Ron - nice winter set. Just signed my kids up for soccer but your pic tells me spring is still a ways away….
Joakim & Katie - thanks so much!
Mike - honestly, the Canon f/1.8 ltm is such a good all around performer. Nice wide open and quite sharp stopped down. You can get some funky flare with it too which I like.
Joakim - nice pic and I am also looking forward to the gold medal game.
Charlie - must be nice to be on the hill most the time…

Gary, very nice B&W. Amazing how the black dot works!!
Ron, love these series of snow scenes. I really like pastel rendering, but the detail is beautifully there.
Joakim, great timing of the street capture!! Love it
Charlie, very nice! I like the way you have the choice of so many lenses, and if you want to travel light, you can.
Gary, looks like a great day!!
Phil, congrats on the new 5cm Jena. Really nice toning
