Edward - really like the second one on the previous page! The one above too!
Leonas - DNG converted in LR5. Sized to 1000 pixels wide with PhotoMechanic with sharpening for both. I didn't go too crazy with tone curve adjustment, contrast, clarity, etc. for those two. But overall, for urban scenes without people, I'm finding my tendency with the M240 is to really push the files harder than I did with the M9. If the M9 was always higher in contrast with dark shadow values I was constantly opening up, the M240 is nearly the opposite. I think I'm still finding my way with it, and at the moment, it kind of reminds me of when I first started with the M9 and ZM lenses - I went for a really hard look. It also seems that what I see in LR is slightly different, in terms of tonality and color vibrancy, than in other apps... with the files looking a bit flatter than what I recall them being in LR. Pretty sure I have color management correctly implemented and the other apps are definitely color management aware. Display has also been calibrated recently... I also agree with Edward that pushing M240 files hard brings out the grain, though I don't find it objectionable because it has a fairly fine, random quality.
Anyway, here are a couple to show off a new 'Japanese salon' hairstyle. Taken with the 50 Lux ASPH. First is at near MFD, the second around 1m. Last one was with the 28 Cron cropped a bit... no sharpening for the first two and LR5 adjustment was gentler than my current, normal M240 approach.
