C1 is definitely doing some noise reduction right out of the gate. Still, it looks good to my eye.
View from my window..M8, cron 28 asph
Thanks for looking.
Just beautiful! :-)

Steve, more amazingness. Funny, I was scanning images before captions came on, and I said, "This has to be Steve's work"...AMAZING....
Lloyd, very fascinating work with showing the difference in noise reduction. I am waiting with baited breath for LR 3 to officially be released, but you demonstrate that the noise reduction algorithms alone may suffice in inducing this purchase!!!
Rayyan, an amazing shot. I just sold the 28 cron, but your image demonstrates what a magical image capturing tool this can be in the right hands. Congrats!
Rayyan, your work is Breathtaking!
And here are a few more shots from tonight's walk - rain yesterday, and i wasn't bold enough to expose my M9 to the water (yet!)
90/2.0 - the door handle is cropped (edit: i must've missed my export settings, it's huge!) The other two are full frame shots.
I am so jealous if those mountain views up in Seattle - to all those who live in Seattle. Come summer I will be sending along some images from Tahoe, so watch out!
The rock, a log, Hall Peak, and the woods. Cascade Mountains. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt

[QUOTE=DavidE;198814]Oh, no, it's more of those 18mm shots from Vegas.
nice series David,- love the first one most, with all those small details.
superb images, just to drag a few, again for all:
rayyan: beautiful view over those mountains.

Steve, Lloyd, excellent shots. Btw, I think noise removal in LR3 is very good AND C1 did a very good job. I slightly tend to prefer C1.
Lloyd, David, Shtarka1, Ashwin, Matt,Otumay...
Thank you all for your generous comments. There are so many..so so many
simply superb pics from you all that I do not know where and with whom to begin.
Lovely, inspiring work by all of you folks.
M8, cron 28 asph and them with thanks.
Matt,Alex,Osman,Endre...Thank You All!
Steve: Thank you.
Strolling along a crowded avenue in Istanbul, I came across a small show for children. I was lucky to have the M8 and 90 'cron at hand.
Getting to know the M9 more today at the Houston Arboretum. This was shot with the 35mm cron at f2.8. This lens is way sharp wide open too!! Eleanor
Here is one from Cuba
Well I just learned a valuable lesson - the M9 does not warn you there is no USB card after you take a picture, only when you first turn it on. I obviously wasn't paying attention at that moment...
I just spent 45 minutes wandering the neighborhood getting some great shots of post-rain San Francisco, previewing images for focus - but never backed out far enough for a gallery view. I didn't realize it was only buffering one shot and then deleting with each subsequent one. That's what I get for being in a rush this morning leaving for work - forgot to eject the card from my computer and put it back in the camera.
A couple from today. Pike Place Market. I wanted to see what the 90mm Elmarit f/2.8 was capable of wide open; so, I shot everything at f/1.4. Lightroom 2 apparently doesn't know that. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.

Matt and Lloyd: Thank you very much for the encouragement.
Matt, I feel like I've been to the Pike Place Market after seeing your inspiring photos. These last two are no exception.
Eleanor, very nice shot.
Thanks Matt!unclearconcept: That's a bummer! I'm glad with the latest firmware update, I can now use a USB cable to download directly to my Mac. I see myself doing exactly what you did. You'd think there would be a continuing warning?
Maybe I should start using your method... and also just pay attention more carefully I got over my dismay and went out to shoot a few more, missed some of the better ones, but got a few to replace them! I'll try again next time!
these guys are untouched - just resized for the web.
Osman: Thank you. I feel the same way about your photos of Istanbul.
Unclearconcept.: I did what you did once with my M8. I like using the cable because i have a Luigi Case that is kind of a pain to get off. The rose an the paint are great! The vertical "splits" in both images work really well with the texture and color differences.
Testing the IQ of this lens at f/2.8 during a break in today's storm. I quite like it. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.

Love all the different expressions here! Great Shot Osman!
Whenever I visit this thread, I am always in awe... and inspired! Here are a couple of shots from my new (to me) VC 35/2.5 PII skopar. Wow. This is a very nice lens. And the size is perfect! (Makes me want to forego the hood!)
