    Ceh... I'm starting to get the feeling that your S2 came with a helicopter Beautiful images that you are posting, a pleasure to view.

    One question, look at this image of yours (that you posted)...I see two little black dots next to each other near the upper center of the image. Don't tell me those are two hikers? If so, that would be a great image for Leica to use in their S2 advertisments regarding the resolving power of their MF lenses and capabiliuty of their S2 camera to withstand the elements! Must be worth at least a free S2 lens or two!

    Thanks for posting!

    Dave, I saw them too and I am pretty sure these are two hikers.

    Anyway, great series and I would be curious to see how they look printed.

    Thank you David. You and Roger will have a blast there. I am already trying to figure out when I can go back. There is a good variety of things to photograph from landscapes to wildlife.

    Doug, for a bird photographer such as yourself, the Everglades is a great location. For the most part, the birds are accustomed to people and let you get pretty close. The Leica 180mm on the S2 was long enough in a lot of cases and on occasion the minimum focus distance was all that kept me from getting closer.

    Gary,
    There's a chalet in the lower left corner we stayed at. We went up to the mountain - hill in the dark to catch daybreak and sunrise.

    Wow, the S2 not only has great resolution, but facial recognition too, at impossibly great distances! It allowed CEH to identify those two black dots on the horizon as her aquantences .

    Seriously, from what I see so far from CEH and others, there is much to admire about the S2 system.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Good afternoon,
    I wondered why we dont see 120mm images here?
    Is it a question of availability or did you all skip 120 for 180?
    For porrait stuff the 120 could be a nice option, with being a little faster and haveing that nice close focusing distance.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    The 120mm is exceptional, but in short supply. The only thing in shorter supply is my toy fund.

    I have shot a few frames with the Leica S 120mm (thanks to David F.) and it certainly lives up to expectations one would have from looking at the MTF charts.

    I agree the closer focusing distance is great. However, it makes DOF even more of a challenge or asset depending on the look you're after.

    A combination of availability and it being very close in focal length to the Hassy/Zeiss 110/2 which I already own and can use with an adapter. I've always found this lens to be very good for portraits... not so sure about the 120mm.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    As ceh has shown in his last series of excellent images, it's nice to have the extra resolution and detail that the S2 offers should you need it. Here's my example. As I was cloning out the dust spots out of the background at 100%, I noticed the hawk at the top of the highest peak ... I didn't notice him in the full-size shot.

    It's actually amber and not brown, but it's easy to mistake that. You're right about the blue one, however... with gold flecks.

    Nah. Blind as a bat. It's just the incredible resolving power of the S2.

    37 ... the number of fleas I can count on the hawk ... I'd be more certain, but it was a handheld shot.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Impressive detail...
    So here I come with another question in my never ending process to decide for the S2.

    How much/often do you get along fine with the S2 for day to day use as the one main system (besides maybe a M9 when size or higher ISO is a concern).
    Would you also use the S2 in your private environment for images of family, vacation etc?
    How much can it replace a DSLR? (The areas where I would see the DSLR in advantage are higher ISO combined with faster lenses, and of course lighter and smaller lenses -> action, sports, low light) I would keep my DSLR with few lenses for those things but wondered how you get along with the overall bulk of the S2 lenses?
    I would want to make sure the S2 would be a camera system I would use a lot and carry often even for casual shooting. Any experience?

    I would want to make sure the S2 would be a camera system I would use a lot and carry often even for casual shooting. Any experience?
    Since I haven't lived with the S2 for a long time yet I can't speak definitively to this, but basically what you have outlined is the whole premiss I used when evaluating the S2 system.

    Obviously, part of my justification is the use for commercial projects involving weddings, environmental portraiture, and location stuff like shooting corporate functions and business environments. My back-up for these type assignments will be a Sony A900 and a couple of lenses including a longer zoom. But primarily only as back-up, since I do not shoot many very high ISO shots for this type work. I also use a M9 and fast M lenses for some of this work when working in low ambient lighting.

    However, I have found that 1250 ISO is very capable ... more so than I first anticipated. This isn't important just for low light scenarios, but also for medium light where you want to get the shutter speed up to freeze action, provide more DOF, or a steadier shot with the 180mm.

    I also do destination weddings from time-to-time, and to date have not taken MFD with me due to bulk. The S2 changes that because it packs more easily in less space inside my overhead bin carry-on roller bag.

    However, use for private imagery was a big part of the evaluation regarding value for money spent. In fact, most of my use to date (other than test junk), has been family outings, happy snaps, and events over the Holidays. In those situations (as opposed to action sports in crap light), it was much the same as using any Pro level DSLR ... So, if not the M9 for minimalistic portability, then the S2 is the weapon of choice for me now. The S2 IQ is quite addictive, and it is difficult to go back to a 35mm DSLR with its AA filter contaminated CMOS sensor, even for snap shots

    Time will tell more, but I'm pretty confident my personal evaluation to date will bear out over the coming year.

    -Marc

    Oh, and as to bulk verses that of a standard DSLR, I have mitigated that difference with the addition of a hand strap/shoulder strap configuration and use of my Think-Tank lens bag ... which I use with the Sony also anyway. The S lenses are all slim enough to easily fit in this lens bag ... so while everything may be a little bigger, actually carrying a three lens outfit: 35, 70, 180 (or 120), is not much different than carrying the Sony, and would be even less so if my 35mm DSLR were a Canon or Nikon Pro model.

    I really do think the girls from Brazil are some of the most beautiful in the world. I've never traveled there but it's high on my wish list... Two different skin tones here... can't make up my mind which I prefer.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    One line from Marc's reply sounds like what I have been saying for the last year since owning the S2.

    "The S2 IQ is quite addictive, and it is difficult to go back to a 35mm DSLR with its AA filter contaminated CMOS sensor, even for snap shots"

    I have a full Canon SLR setup and even bought the Leica X1 when I got the S2 thinking that I would want a small carry camera for times when the S2 was too bulky or not suited. What I have found in actual use is that the S2 is the camera I use the most by far. The only time I have used the Canon in the last year was to shoot the college football season. In fact, I brought the Canon and 500mm f4 IS with me to the Everglades last week and never got it out of the car except to let someone else try it out. I didn't shoot a single frame with the Canon.

    I also carried my X1 everywhere on my South Florida trip last week and only shot about 30 frames with it. That is sad really. In fact, that trip prompted me to put the X1 up on the Buy/Sale forum due to non-use (about 1,000 frames in almost a year).

    I know I use the S2 in some situations where it may not be the best choice. But, for the most part, I get away with it. What is more telling than anything, is that I have other cameras I could use and don't.

    Somehow I only looked at the photo's and at first completely forgot that you had actually added text to your post.

    I had noticed the difference in PP and I must say I very much prefer the less saturated version.

    It looks more natural to me. In a way this photo looks more like what I've come to expect from an S2 image.

    IMHO the first one looks a bit like a 'pimped up' jpg from a p & s camera, to much contrast and saturation for my taste. YMMV, of course.

    I also like the model's pose, hair and expression in the second photo much better.

    Thanks for sharing these warm images, from cold and dark Northern Europe,

    Peter

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Thank you Marc and Mark for sharing your experience here - which sounds exactly what I had hoped to hear-that the S2 could be used pretty flexible for many things and offered so much joy to use that one accept some small disadvantages in certain areas and leave the DSLR at home for the S2.

    Regarding the x1 I would say dont sell. I like this camera a lot and have allready caugh some very nice moments with it. And it can go in a pocket of jacket. The second advantage is its near silent. Recently I have aded the grip (didnt like it in the beginning) and now even one handed shooting works great.
    I bought the smallest bag I could fit the camera into. Still hoping for an AF speed up though.

    One thing in commen with the S2 which I like so much is the simple user interface. Years ago, when realizing that we have to get used to a new phone/computer etc etc every 2-3 years and also realizing that 70% of new feautures are mostly gymmmics which make it less intuitive to access the 30% usefull features I stopped loosing my interest and motivation to really learn all functions of a new "toy".
    My latest TV came with 2 remote controls-one with 5 buttons and one withmaybe 30 buttons - some of those 30 I have never used so far.

    Hi David,
    I can also not make up my mind wich I like better. If you say Brazil I would guess the first one is more accurate, if you said the Model was from Skandinavia I would have suggested the second.
    If it was me I would probably look for something inbetween regarding saturation.

    CEH,

    These mountainous landscapes are hauntingly stark but beautiful. Doug is right, brrrr, you can almost feel the intense cold. A chairlift of some sort appears in some of the pics. I supposed it's for skiing, when the conditions are right?

    Mark,
    That is about the minimum distance that I would like to be from those guys! Too bad you didn't have an SA lens to shoot with to compare. Looks like a reasonable alternative to the L brand till they come out with a long lens and us to save up to afford one!

    There is a cable car in that area, but it does not lead to the top of hills, which are in the photos, but only to the saddle beneath them. It is a protected natural area. You can meet skialpinists on the hills if there is enough snow.This season is weaker.

    Friends,
    I would like to ask you where to buy a reduction for Hasselblad V lens.
    For my landscape photos with the sun in the picture it seems to me CFE IF 4 / 40 more appropriate than S 3,5 / 35...

    3,5/35


    4/40

    Those are two entirely different lighting scenarios using different sensor captures. Whether one is more appropriate should be evaluated shooting the same lighting scenario and the same sensor capture. Personally, of the two shots, I prefer the S35's handling of the specular lighting.

    I had the Zeiss 40IF which I compared to the Hasselblad HCD35-70 set to 40mm ... using the same subject matter, lighting and the same camera/digital back. That comparison saved me $6K when I chose to not keep the 40IF.

    So, it depends ...

    Marc,
    Thank you,
    however,
    number of star pattern rays of the CFE IF is perfect for me..
