Ben, please don't repeat I paid 350$ for a like new Leica R 50/2 Summicron : since you are in the market prices are rising dramatically .


$350??!! NO??!!! I still haven't heard about the 50 lux - so I bought an 80 lux (god help me) and I'm looking at a 50 cron - the best price I can find for a decent one is $550? so yeah, you're right, the prices went up when I entered the market - don't they know I'm a penniless cyclist.

Americo - the M9 is sensational - but it's a rangefinder - so it's very hard to focus. VERY hard to focus. And the D800 is no slouch - I don't know that, in performance terms, you're missing out on anything (other than Leica glass - but that's where the R series comes in)

My wife harvested her three little olive trees yesterday and is now preparing the olives to be brined. I guess they will have to be kept in water and rinsed periodically for a month before going into the brine.

Here are some pictures taken with the 135mm F3.5 Ai and PK 1 and 50mm F 1.8

Secondly a couple of dog pics, both with the 135mm 3.5 Ai

Great images Bert!

Two of my favorites, olives, and doggies! Great capture! Those olives look delightful! How many salt rinse cycles does it usual take, for results? I bet they make an excellent treat as well, and very universal! -Happy photography, Americo.rodriguez.

It got into the 30s but there was a bushfire somewhere and the city was shrouded in a weird glowing yellow haze. The 180 was another lens I was thinking of selling - but I'm not so sure. At this rate I wont be parting with any of them.

Chin, love those Australian landscapes out of your hands ;-)

Ben, I like the first shot with the 180/2.8 a lot.

Kenneth, very cool setup (love the look of the old 200/4) and a beautiful butterfly-closeup!

Bert, great dog-portraits!

Sam, the thunderbolt-shot is fantastic!

James, your sunflower-closeup is outstanding in it's abstract and graphical nature.

John, fantastic set from your hiking trip! I think I remember the scenics from a previous post. The fire-lookout is a very cool place. Love the Osborne-fire-finder, nice to see that non-CPU-ed equipment is still in use today ;-)

Curtis, nice to see some shots out of your hands again! Love especially the fence-corner in B&W (excellent framing and a beautiful conversion) and the "main musician".

Ian, I like the "burnt portrait" a lot. Maybe it would be absolute perfect if the jagged white part would contain a trace of tones.

Mark, great shots from Canada! Love "Still not the only one here".

Steve, great candids from the English streets!

Ray, the turtle doesn't look all that happy about having her picture taken ;-) Love this shot for it's framing!

Leighton, sorry, I don't get it: is the chicken-eating guy your brother? A great snap for sure!

Philippe, great set from the castel. Buchheim, the "Das Boot"-author, wrote about the Loire-castels in his Boot-sequel "Die Festung", if memory serves. Have to read this one again.

Ronny, lots of amazing images again! The variety of your work and subjects is wonderful.

Samy, your fine sets from the Poe's graves reminded me of "The pit and the pendulum". I've read this story as a too young boy and couldn't sleep for ages ;-)



Sorry, I've missed a few great shots, it's just really hard to keep up with this thread ;-)

Wow, so much time has passed since my last visit here. I was 2 weeks absent because a field trip and a week putting things up to date in my office.

Too many images to comment, but anyway the thread is maintaning the usual awesome rate of breathtaking images and conversations!!

Right now I am not posting any image, just asking a little help from PC specialists over here.:

Is this Nikkor P.C 35mm f/2.8 (black knob, latter & supposedly better version) worth of paying around US$ 350-375.00

Jose, nice to see you posting again!
Sorry, I've never tried a 35mm-PC-Nikkor. The price sounds really fair. I've missed an auction over here for this lens in excellent shape and it's final bid was about 270 Euros.
The new 45 PC-E is supposed to be a better performer, but it's price and/or bulk make this lens a "special one" ;-)

Ben, I don't think rangefinders are that hard to focus. Ultrafast-lenses require careful focusing with any camera-system and under certain conditions a rangefinder might trump a SLR in this discipline. But I've never used a M9 or some of the f/0.95-beasts ;-)
Btw, when it comes to Leica-R-lenses: sometimes it's cheaper to buy a Summicron-R 50/2 attached to a R4 or R-E than to purchase the lens alone.
I've paid very modest prices for my R-lenses a few years back, but I'm buying glass in user-grade-condition, not in collectors-condition.

Here's a strange shot from last week. The local music-school got a bassoon-pipe as a donation and I had to take a square picture for a local paper.
Sometimes the placing of adds or so require non-ideal picture-sizes and this one was quite a task ;-)
