Haha, thanks!
When shooting female portraits I wear a white shirt. I think you are seeing the sun reflecting off my shirt (really it works). That and her eyes are hazel/green (depending on her mood) so that's where the gold tint comes from.

adam, excellent shot and beautiful woman! I believe to see a light source in her eyes, did you use a golden reflector, since the shot is against the sun, just curios?

unoh7,what adapter you use on A7r with m lenses?i own a toy-A7r for low price to have fun with my Nikon and m lenses


Hi Leonas,

The super cheap M adapters are fine, like 20USD, but they go past infinity. I would disregard the angst about adapter perfection, which I feel comes largely from issues which have nothing to do with the adapters--but I'm sure there are exceptions.

Many of the expensive ones are also heavy compared to the cheap ones.

My personal favorite is the Hawks V3 which runs around 180USD. It's light, has it's own helicoid for close focus and has an adjustment for the infinity stop. Very good build one these newer hawks adapters, but you must have v3, no older for A7s.

TY for kind words everyone, and TY for so many excellent images up there I love the variety.

as to the various 90s, one thing to take into account is--at least what i find--that the M9 is a harsh bokeh mistress, very unforgiving. Huge contrast with the A7s which are super creamy OOF.

So, alot comes down to the background. Some busy stuff is not going to look great even with "good bokeh" lenses on the M9. I see this with the CV 35/1.2. The M9 is so friggin sharp it delineates OOF shapes too much!

Sometimes, anyway

Steve Huff's recent review of the 90/2.5 infers the same thing, I think. The M240 he finds more forgiving in this respect.

I personally think the CV90 is a steal. So light, and so sharp. Oh, and so cheap

On a side note, the 90 summarit I find outstanding for portraits on the A7.

Here an example

Perhaps it's because if you don't like the subject matter, be it models, kids, cats, street scenes, landscapes, you can at least enjoy the rendering qualities of the lenses, and thus it promotes this idea of commenting and staying rather positive about everyones posts, and I guess that helps to promote safe sharing among other M fans.

For instance, I'm sure you're all sick of seeing my wife, but she's my only willing model, so here's a shot of her sitting on a stump at the park (Griffith Park), I shot it with the 50APO at f/2:

No, I am not sick of seeing your wife. She is lovely, and you photograph her well.

Here are a few I shot recently of my wife. She was seven months pregnant a the time, and we are due next month. (A little girl!)







Leica M240 + 50mm Summilux - there's a touch of deliberate motion blur here, since this was a 1s exposure at f/8, after the sun set. I was amazed at how still she could hold her head!







Leica M240 + 35mm f/1.4 Summilux







Had to sneak this one in even though it's not "alt" or Leica - D800 + Sigma 85mm f/1.4. Shot it right after the second image.

Ryankarr, fantastic work from you as usual. For me, the 2nd shot is the best.

Joakim, I really like the 1st shot, "bicycles and horses"

Gary, beautiful classic rendering of the old lens.

Charlie, I like the 1st shot. Nice angle and color mixture.

Arka, Outstanding set with beautiful light. Excellent! And wishing your wife and yourself a safe delivery and a healthy baby.

Yes I'm sure the sensor has a lot to do with the overall look of the bokeh/lens in general. I will test a few of my lenses on the A7 (haven't tested them all yet, kinda just using the FE55).

Nice work everyone. I have not had much time to comment but am "liking" as warranted...

Ron - that second shot has so much detail. I had a great time yesterday visiting the mega cities of Ancaster, Brantford, Scarborough, and Waterdown. Had a nice stay at the Thompson Hotel on Wellington St though.... Didn't hurt that it was fashion week in Toronto either! Never seen so many 6'-2" models in my life.

Allen, Another nice street pic. The old lady’s expression makes the shot.
Ron, impressive! I like them. you pretty much stopped M240, M9 debate for me, these remind me your earlier works with M9 in this thread.
Ryankarr, strong set! strong impact.
Joakim, Love the 1st shot as well. Nice street set!
Charlie, cool set!
Arka, Beautiful light and model. Congratulation!
Adam, a Very nice/beautiful portrait. I learn new thing again. White shirt next time

21biogon, forget input code. I lost some shots for the color corner.

Hey Gary, right in my backyard. Fortunately you had a nice day for the tour. Good to know where to stay in TO during fashion week!

Leonas - I believe those were sharpened. I'm not sure about your EVF question as there is not a focus confirmation dot in it, but it does support focusing the camera's electronic focusing aids of magnified view and focus peaking. I generally don't focus with the EVF unless it's a longer, fast lens at or near wide open, such as the 50 Lux. It's faster to focus with the rangefinder and use the EVF for framing. An annoyance of this, however, is that the EVF sticks out enough that it makes vertical viewing through the OVF uncomfortable...

Thanks Michael! I think Edward's results have also been pretty convincing. That said, I do notice differences in processing. Was working on a job today and felt the shadow colors were not as neutral or clean as the M9... I still feel like there's a bit of a magenta color shift underlying some of my images with it. Might be a profile problem as I'm just using the one included with Lightroom. Great color palette in your images!

Zhangyue, 2nd shot is my favorite. Great colors and atmosphere.

Ron, very nice work utilizing the full DR of the M and the colors are great! I agree about the shadow color cast, which is green in my experience. I use the embedded profile as I find it gives me a sense of familiarity with the colors of the M9. This said, the overall color balance is more pleasing with the M and easier to adjust with less PP.
