Allen, it is always inspiring to see your street photos.
Ron, great winter photos and my favorite is the second one from the last set. Personally I hope we have left the winter behind us for this time here in Stockholm.
Katie, I like the interior photos. That house looks very southern US to me
lenticuar, nice shot.
Charles, great colors and rendering in the photos of the roses.
Gary, you are really making good use of the 21 SEM!. Hard to pick one but I think I'll go with #3
Edward, more great street photos from you.

Najibs - there seems to be some exposure difference between the two and exif shows it being a half stop brighter with the Voigtander lens. IMO, the biggest difference is background rendering, though CV lenses tend to be slightly gentler with contrast.
Edward - like the first couple and the colors you're getting tool
Joakim - I've been enjoying your recent street images. Is this a new project? It seems to be a new tangent compared to what you've posted in the past.
Charles - love the rendering - it really suits the subject.
Mirek - cool juxtaposition of organic and geometric. Seems we're a long way from spring here...

Ron,nice tree on your photos,im waiting from you photos of tree from M240 sharper or equal sharp as on my M9,your photos from M9 was ultra sharp.Can M240 outperform M9 on sharpness?im want to buy M240 too,but still waiting


As mentioned before, for these kinds of high detail scenes, I've turned off output sharpening when downsizing the images for the web because the program I use only has an on/off sharpening option - no control over the amount and I thought these kinds of scenes were looking too crunchy.

At full rez the M240 does feel slightly different from the M9 in terms of apparent sharpness. I attribute this to its slightly higher resolution doing a better job at reducing fine detail aliasing. That image aliasing with the M9 could contribute to the impression of greater sharpness, but is debatable, at least for me, whether it was in fact real image detail and not the result of artifacts.

It would seem we all have different priorities. For me, the M240 upgrade was more about functionality in certain kinds of situations where I value speed. Having just shot a wedding with it, it definitely performed more to my liking than the M9 did. Faster, quieter, deeper buffer (never hit its limit, though kept ISO at 1000 or lower where it's deepest), longer battery life.

Image quality differences between it and the M9 are not great and some of it will be subjective preferences. Therefore I fully appreciate why some have not given up their M9s, or even returned to them after trying the M240.

What's most important is to do what makes sense for you!

Thanks Ron.

I attended a street photography workshop with Eric Kim in December and got so inspired that I decided to put some real effort in learning it better. I think for February and Mars I have only been out once or twice without shooting street although this will probably change when spring arrives.

Thank you very much Joakim, Ron.

Joakim, I really like the second set. The framing and timing are excellent!

Ron, no. 3 and 4 are surreal. Very well done!

Unlike Ron, I wait till the snow stops and the temperature rises before going out with the M240. Here's a few with the Vario Elmar-R 35-70/4

Ran some errands today and brought my M Monochrom with me. As always, minimal post.

This set were all taken with my new 1949 Leica 5cm f/2 Summitar and red filter. This is very clean example, just serviced by Sherry Krauter.

And one more with the red filter removed. Again, minimal post.

Fantastic shots.

The girl in the second-to-last shot looks like Teri Garr.

This is from a walk in the neighborhood, M8 with a late S-Mount Nikkor 5cm F1.4 on an Amedeo Adapter, Wide-Open. 16-Bit Raw mode, V1.2 M8RAW2DNG.

Brian - love that effect. It's what pushed me to get this lens. I don't use it enough!
Allen - great! Especially like the juxtaposition of the first one.
Andrew - great tones! I had a brief chance to try the Summitar and really like its bokeh quality, which you've shown nicely in the second one. Not everyone's preference, but I like it.
Cal - really like the silvery tones of the first one.
Edward - very nice!
Joakim - while I didn't take Eric's course, I did meet up with him in Toronto last summer, along with his class participants for a post-course dinner. I can believe he's very inspiring. I'm still resistant to the simplicity of the one-lens philosophy though, for which he chided me. That said, I do tend to use all the lenses in my bag during most outings. Just my style, I suppose.
