Great set Allen! Do you find much of a difference when shooting in NYC vs. Chicago?
Love the mountain scenes Gary!
Joakim - great to see some Stockholm scenes and love the clouds.
Edward - first one is kind of humorous/interesting... everyone seems to be looking in the direction of his crotch..
Very nice Arka!
Great colors Michael! Really like the vertical of the kids running on the beach and the green field & fog on the previous page. Using your M9 much?

Here are some from Leslie Street Spit in Toronto. Never had been there and had the chance to explore for a couple hours one evening. Decided to look around instead of sitting in rush hour for a couple hours... Turns out it's my kind of place - a manmade environment with a surprising wealth of compositions underfoot among the chaos. I'm sure a lot of it has been 'curated' by other visitors...

















M240 and 50 Lux ASPH for first, 21 SEM for last two.

Firmware: I was going to hold out until after the next week or so of weddings, jobs, etc... but after browsing LUF it seemed like a pretty clean update without any obvious complications reported by others, so just downloaded it now. Seems to be OK...

Favourite features right now:

Level/horizon overlay during live view. Would have been very useful for the last two above. I was jammed up against rocks and it was rather difficult to see the live view display well and accurately judge if I was level.

Peaking seems to be stronger, but I so far still prefer to leave it off.

Just like movie credits, sometimes they're as entertaining as the actual film. In the case of the firmware update, I think credit should be given to whoever thought up the update/progress screen. Instead of a boring progress bar, it was a refreshing pattern of squares of various shades seemingly randomly animated, I guess with the degree of activity reflecting the actual update activity. At least it gave some reassurance that something was happening!

Also, did anyone catch the post on LUF by the guy who has written a script (Mac only at this time) to fix the M240 green shadow cast problem?

Very nice, makes me wonder what lens you used. Looks like the lens has some curvature of field, so my guess would be either a summilux 75 or a summilux 80

Nice images.. No worries about the update thus far, and I've updated all the cameras already.
I also liked the update screen, but was staring at it considerably longer then Edward. My official times were (first one I didn't time but over 5m) second one came in at 5:13 and the third one came in at 5:47 all used the same card. I kinda got scared after the 3 minute mark.. Wondering if the camera froze but just kept going through the motions of the animation.

I just msged him.. Thanks for bringing to my attention, I have a whole wedding full of pushed shots that I don't mind doing some testing on.

I second this
Feeling more strongly Nikon, although could just be OOF, but adds to the look either way :P

Nice shot BTW, lovely flare.

Thanks Ron and not a lot difference just New York just has a lot more people so I get even less attention because of that. Chicago went through a lot of urban renewal in the 50s & 60s so we lost a lot of our older buildings so a lot of the neighborhoods in Chicago don't have the same flavor as New York. I really like shooting in New York as well.

Thank you very much for the comments and likes!

Zhangyue, nice continuation of the series. Color palette is very nice.

Allen, really like 4, 5 and 7! Great work!

Gary, your landscapes never disappoint

Ron, fantastic colors and strong graphic composition.

Philip, love this portrait, lighting, flare and all.

Edward, the ZM glass really works great with the clarity of light and shapes of the monuments. I could spend all day in such a place...

Allen - my impression of central Chicago is it's more Metropolis-like; more monumental with tightly packed tall buildings and a relatively clean street level experience. NYC seems more organic and haphazard, though of course it certainly has its share of massive building clusters, too.

Philip - love the feel of that image... the model, flare, bokeh, all come together very nicely. Is it also with the 50 Cron collapsible you mentioned a couple pages earlier? The bokeh at the edges has a 50 Cron feel to it...

















M with 28 Cron, 50 Lux ASPH, 21 SEM...

Thanks guys!

Close!

1954 50mm Summicron Collapsible -I like the classic lens looks more than the new stuff so I've been working with them lots lately. Now that I'm understanding the flare better on this lens, I've been having a great time with it.

Philip, you are really putting those legacy lenses to great use.
I have a question on the firmware. When I tried to set the Direct Exposure Compensation option by highlighting the Direct Adjustment and then use the right and left arrows to choose On and Off. I can not switched it on, it continues to show as off on the menu but I can change the exposure with the dial. So it works but it still bothers me.

I got my answer on the EC showing as off but working from another web site that had beta testers.
"This is working correctly. The fact that EV displays from -3.0 to OFF to +3.0. The zero setting is displayed as "OFF." The display of "OFF" doesn't mean that the EV function with the thumbwheel is off, only that the EV value is zero (or off).
A user has to go into the settings to set the thumbwheel to OFF. These two uses of the word "OFF" in different locations, and having a different meaning, seems to be confusing.
Some thought that the EV should read "0" instead of "OFF." Minor detail once you understand the way it is setup."
