Not crazy about the photo (super contrasty light and slightly missed focus), but like this guy's T-shirt:

CrooDL -- Very nice silhouette and a good image to sell Speed Boosters.

I'm thinking about selling my Sony/Zeiss 24mm. Now that I have the Leica, the Sony/Zeiss just sits there unused.

That's interesting. Can you describe your preference? Is it DOF scale (well, it's rather distance scale in case of APS-C) that makes this leica a better choice?
I found I also highly prefer my SE 18 over 10-18 (although I don't own it the zoom, just tried a couple of times) and the main reason is the DOF scale (again, distance scale and learned DOF chart for 28mm lens), using AF only for such a wide lens is quite a limitation, since there's no distance information both on the lens and display.

ebookman - about 2/3 of the time I need to fix the corners when using the Leica 24mm Elmar with my Nex 7. I use the Adobe flat field correction within Lightroom. It is easy, and does a good job.

It is hard for me to describe. Philippe would probably be better able to explain than me (he has used both, too). On the Leica, everything just seems more clear, with richer colors - especially in the distance. My best images with the Sony/Zeiss 24 were taken closer to the camera.

Of course the experience of using the two lenses is completely different. With the Leica, I am slower in my photography, and this is probably a good thing.

Is there a tutorial available anywhere to show the process? I use cornerfix but I would like to compare the process.

Here's my little tutorial

1) install the Adobe DNG flat field plugin, available here from Adobe:
http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroomplugins/

2) Like cornerfix, you need a correction image taken with a white background. - you can probably use the same image you used in cornerfix. However, you will need to convert that image to a DNG. (In Lightroom, switch to the Library module, then from the menu, choose "Library -> Convert Photo to DNG") Remember where this image is in the file system.

3) You also have to convert your target image from its original raw format to DNG.

4) Now you are ready to use the plug in. Stay in the Library module of Lightroom, and with your target image (converted to DNG) selected, choose "File -> Plugin Extras -> Apply External Correction". LR will ask where the correction image is located. Find it in the dialogue box, and choose it. Then LR asks "Color Only" or "Color and Falloff?" I seem to get the best results with "Color Only".

5) After a few seconds, the corrected image will appear (usually next to the original) labeled "image_name_ff.dng".

I have found it easier to use than cornerfix.

Enjoy...

Here's some butterflies with the Contax S-Planar 60/2.8. 60mm is usually a bit short for butterflies, but these ones where strangely docile...

Interesting comments on using the Leica M 24 Elmar with the Nex7. Has anyone compared it with the much cheaper Zeiss ZM 25/2.8?

Phillip, love the feather-shot and last one on the previous page. Exquisite.

Here are some random postcards to all you inspiring FM-members from a few vacation days on Gotland. City wall from Visby. Voigtländer 15/4.5 on NEX 5N.

Yeesh, what horrible timing, that is a tough post to follow Phillip.

Just a humble prickly pear bloom, with the 16-50 on the NEX6, trying to get a sense of how the lens performs. I love the DR of the camera, but I feel the lenses leave a little something to be desired in less than very good light. Also, learning Gimp, so, not the best conversion maybe.

Phillip - nice shots with the Minolta AF Glass.I like the shot of the berries with the corresponding bokeh.
How do you like using the LEA1 adapter?
