Had two days in the mountains with great weather, about time, after so much tours without taking any pictures.

Thomas, awesome shot and perfect timing!

Ron, Thank you very much for your comments! The mesh shots are absolutely beautiful. Composition, shadow play, starbursts, perfect!

I am encouraged by your comments and Charles' to shoot with the 25 more often. It's true that I shoot it rarely. My last set at Chinatown and train station was all shot with it, but that time I was using the M9 with an external finder. This time I'm using the M240 with internal 28mm framelines brought up by the lens mount. I did hear some negative comments from people, which I rarely get in Thailand, but I guess I should have thick skin if I want to shoot street

The 35 Biogon bokeh is certainly not very esthetic, but interesting. To be fair, I was never able to reproduce this kind of bokeh myself, it needs specific elements and distances to be present. The only few times I have seen it was in Luka's photos and this shot by Adrian, and in Luka's shots it really wasn't pleasant so I understand his feelings.

Peter, fantastic landscapes, great colors and atmosphere. I'm a capricorn too by the way

Absolutely stunning images on this page.

Gary - fantastic street-scapes.
Zhangyue, the water is perfectly colored. So soft and lovely.
Tophoto - great timing and love the way the skiis are crossed!
Ron - last shot is my fav (not because it's with the lux, but because of all the great sun stars in the water reflections)
Peter - first image in each set is my fav. Stunning work as always. Glad to see you back posting again.


Here's my 6 year old who just had a home haircut in the kitchen getting rinsed off from all the hair cuttings in the kitchen sink. He looks so small and helpless here... I am really liking this image. M-E and 50 Lux asph.

Robert - are you stalking me!!?? Yes, I tried out all the Voigtlander lenses they had for M mount. Some real nice lenses but nothing which I "need" at the moment. I did happen to win a tripod in the draw though.


Stalking seems to come with the territory. Ever since I bought a Leica I seem more stealth now than when I carried around a DSLR. Congrats on the tripod win. I kept thinking it was on a Saturday. Oh well it was for the best I would have ended up spending money again.

TY so much

I also took the A7 with a OLY 200/5 and shot it on the same hike:

Thanks very much for the likes and comments!

Peter - very inspiring! Unfortunately in southern Ontario, there is a lack of amazing mountainous landscapes to explore...
Charlie - great set! Your tours are on motorcycle, aren't they?
Katie - that's a fabulous image! Love his position and expression.

Edward - maybe Thais are getting tired of 'tourists' and their cameras? The few times I've been in Taiwan I found it pretty easy to shoot on the street without any kind of apparent displeasure from those around me.. but I also didn't understand the language, and it's been a few years. Maybe things are changing globally? I can sympathize with those in front of the lens. There are so many cameras out there now, it really does feel invasive at times, seemingly staring into a lens each way you turn, whether it's a phone or a 'proper' camera... combined with all the media reports about corporate and governmental spying/data mining of internet traffic, etc. I wonder when the identity cloaking head covers will hit the market...?

Did someone say sunstars?

I shot some of those too... Nothing too fancy, just liked the colour contrasts.












M240 & 50 Lux ASPH.

I need to test it again, but my recollection is the ZM50/2 is better at starbursts....

Very nice Charlie and Ron.

Edward - did you ever end up buying that extension tube for M mount lenses? Just wondering how the workmanship is and how well it works.

TY Ron, been loving those abstracts of yours lately

In this case, no motorcycle involved. Trail is about 10 miles from my house by road. Drove out and hiked from there.

I would have some people mad at me if I rode in that particular place .

However, there are many trails near and far where I can and do ride one of my two trail bikes.

A horse would be good also, I rode in the backcountry alot when I was a kid, but it's alot of work to keep the Horses well and fit.

I wish I had the time and money to do so!

Spent it all on cameras and lenses

Speaking which, this hike taught me that leaving the A7 and an imperfect 200 home, and taking an 135 APO would be a better way to go. I have a sweet wetzlar M6 and a few lenses I'll sell if I can to fund one.


Gear by unoh7, on Flickr

for much of the hike I had both cameras slung by strap, but was surprised once when I pulled the sony around to shoot and found the battery door open!. Lucky the battery was still there. People complain about the base plate of the M9 etc, but it is way better than the cheap little doors on the A7. I wish I could find a case for it that actually covered the LCD, and all the silly doors.

Very nice images, everyone.

Ron - wow, that starburst abstract is quite spectacular. Also, the place I went was a French-themed village hotel.

uhoh7 - frankenfinder on the M9 looks very imposing

I have a nice little 21 zeiss finder for my sem, but I use FF for the 18--so far. Frankenfinder is pretty tough What's also nice is it goes to 28, so I used it with the Cron 28 in the shots above. Very relaxing. I wear glasses, and at 28 with the M9 I have to move my head around to see the edges. I'm not really used to that yet.


L1014346 by unoh7, zm18 f/13

I like to shoot the shrubs and flowers to help me learn them better, and I have not decided what RF lens is easiest to do this with on the M9. That zeiss goes to .5, so sometimes I push the camera forward a bit with a small stop. It seems just fine stopped down---but there may be a threshold. Doesn't normally matter at 18, f/8 is fine for huge DOF, unless you are really close. Then f/13 is pretty nice to have crisp.

but f/6.7 is not so bad:


L1014339 by unoh7, zm18 f/6.7
