Thanks Charles!


He shoots like a pro (as do you).

And Paul, I too am debating which Lecia 90 to get. My hunt shows about a $2000 difference in price (APO / non-APO) Is that about right?

Gary.... I think $2000 gap is a bit much....
I thought... Maybe $1000 gap between the two....
You're talking about the used one, I assume....

Here's a contribution to the thread, shot with a M8.

Latest pre-ASPH 28 Elmarit, ISO160, fast shutter, f/2.8 or f/4, and full frame:

Jim,
nice shot,somehow you managed to expose the shot very well with out blowing out the whites in her jacket or the snow.

Here is another link if any are interested in seeing how you focus a rangefinder

Thanks Doc!

As for the 90's, I just got a last pre-ASPH version Elmarit and it's very sharp with good contrast. Sean Reid rated it very close to the Summicron ASPH and of course, it's much cheaper. I'd like to have the additional f-stop but at least with this Elmarit, shooting wide open is no problem. It's also a very reasonable size. Paul, I know you're a big fan of the 3D look and this lens surprised me by having some of that.

Nice shot Jim, particularly with the difficult lighting.

Here is a shot from yesterday, just trying out the 90mm f2.8 Elmarit. The shot below is 100% crop. I was lucky enough to pick this lens up, after the lenses many journeys to Afghanistan. Few scratches, but otherwise fine.

A 100% crop from the unprocessed image. Something went funky in the background when I first processed it, those blue/green bits at the top aren't meant to be there.

a bit sad to admit it, but I'm deeply in love with my M9, together with a couple of lenses it was the perfect travel cam for our trip to south america earlier this year:

That looks all the world like "El Perito Moreno", am I right? Man the Andes are simply amazing. South America is amazing.

I'm pretty impressed with the DR of M8 ....
Is it because it uses the Kodak sensor?

Paul,
is it because it is CCD?

Paul, I hope you don't mind me crashing your thread with Leica X1 pictures, but this is the thread that comes closest to being the right place to post them.

I just got the camera so this was my first attempt at using it..

I had heard that the Elmarit 24 ASPH was a really good lens and you've certainly proven that. The first two in partciular are reach out and touch shots. Be forewarned though that Paul Yi is the king of bench shots so be careful there.
