Looks nice, never heard of it before.


I seen this(below) and thought it may be of interest to GAS addicts.

That looks like a pretty effective antacid for most folks GAS.

I'd like to offer my Oregon address (no sales tax) and services as a re-shipper of your expensive camera related purchases. Have your new Leica M etc. sent here, I will test everything out for several weeks (you know, just to make it look like I was the real purchaser), then forward it along to you in your sales tax charging state when the coast seems clear.

Sigma 35/1.4. Probably shouldn't have.
So far so good though. All MF, took it for a test drive in a derelict onsen nearby.
Next: compare it to CY 35/1.4

Sebboh: i though you were a Rokkor guy

looks like 50mm got a tiny bit of oil on the blades. Haven't checked the 35-70 that thoroughly yet.

I'll see his $300 and raise to $450! (and I already have a C/Y 50/1.4)!.

My last alt lens purchase was a Contax G45, then converted to Leica M, as reported on this thread.

Here's a SOOC RAW-TIF-jpeg with no PP whatsoever - ISO160, Leica M8, f3.5

Beautiful shot!
Hmm, I had only 50/1.7 and my workhorse 35-70/3.4 is getting a little beaten up. It was time to get a safety copy..
The 50/1.4 seems to have a Contax P filter attached and fairly firmly at that.
