    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Vic - Those IQ backs offer some neat features. I try but can't convince myself I will ever use or need 80 megapixels....however I need somethign for my Alpa fetish and the IQ40 ticks that box for sure - lets me use my existing wides without having to fork out for the newer larger image circles..
    The S2 is a DSLR with 40 megapixels and ( judging by teh 70mm the best glass ever seen in MFD - sans tech stuff) -then again Leaf in Afi mount kills two birds with one stone so to speak - but no IQ style GUI..

    yes lots always to think about..
    Pete
    Apologies everyone for too much words? - back to pictures!

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Kurt,
    great images and the colors of the sand and stone are one thing where I find the MF rendering to be a real benefit.
    You make it hard for me though to resist the 180. It will not happen that I become week before even having received the 120.
    I think however in a long term I want one longer lens too.
    The decission with Hassy glass on the S2 is hard. What I dont want is to spend 1000 or 2000 for Hassy glass to save money and then add Leica glass later on anyways and having spend even more than just buying Leica in the first step.
    However for a lens which is not used very often it could be fine to work without AF and automated f-stop.
    Is there anywhere a thread where I can find infos how well which lenses work on the S2? If not, maybe we should start one.

    While waiting for Davids surprize I could pick up my 35mm lens, leave work a little earlier and shot some first images with it. (River Rhine)







    and one with the 70mm:

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    the biggest disadvantage of the S2 I see so far is its price/high value. I like it so much that I would want to bring it in condiions and at places where one is a little bit afraid with such expensive equipment.

    and then there is the "carry what to where in which bag" question.
    Do you carry 3 lenses for longer hikes? In which bag?
    I have borrowed Think-O-Matic20 to check it out. Looks funky but it could work well for the S2 with 2-3 lenses.
    The alternative would be Marks suggestion to carry the lenses in a seperate bag.

    Did I mention that I like the camera?

    Beautiful shot Arif. I took a quick look at your website and saw some great images. I particularly liked your dance shots many of which remind me of shots taken by my good friend Chuck Jones (his Tango series). Did you shoot these with a Leica M ?

    Excellent photo and B&W conversion Arif. I bet it would look incredible printed large. There seems to be lots of detail and subtle tones.

    Thanks Mark, I am in the process of selecting my Myanmar pictures and will print them. I have a feeling this picture will turn out well.

    Thank you very much David for taking the time to visit my site. Most of the tango shots were done in the same evening and were done with the D3/85 1.4 combination. I wish my M focussing skills were good enough to get these type of shots

    Thanks again,

    Just echoing what others have expressed...superb shot, great tonality. It should make a wonderful print.

    This one's for the birdman. I wish I had a little more length, but the added pixels let me crop in a little closer.

    ISO 1250 cleans up nicely in LR3. The image gets a bit too smooth (plastic looking) and looses some pop (DR and contrast). However, it may be possible to find better settings with some practice. Still, its better than not getting the shot.

    Full Frame - 180mm at ISO 1250

    Mark,
    Stop looking for alternate lenses and just save up for the 180. That is incredible detail!

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Kurt, Mark... you guys are pretty brave posting bird shots with Doug Herr looking over your shoulders I've done my fair share of that kind of shooting but not with MF as it didn't have the reach I needed. Still, the detail and color in that last crop of Mark's is impressive... especially for ISO 1250. Kurt, glad to see you found someplace warm to shoot.

    Mark, thanks for posting these. The S2 detail is excellent.

    David, I'm actually in your neck of the swamp for a few days for a convention in Orlando. I tried to step out and find a few large birds after I left the airport on my way to the hotel. If we could adapt Doug's 280/4 to an S-mount, he'd be in a lot of trouble.

    Only if he teaches us how he talks to these birds in order to get as close as he consistently does.

    Welcome to Florida Kurt. Don't know if your schedule will permit it but the Merritt Island Wildlife Preserve is a bird shooters paradise, Black Point Drive in particular. I've spent countless hours there and still haven't seen it all.

    OTOH once the proposed 350mm APO-Telyt-S becomes reality I'll be checking under my sofa cushions, in every vending machine coin return, and I'll sit on the street corner holding out my hat to passers-by

    I have been off today selling body parts (e.g, less used toys) to help pay for a Leica S 180mm. Even with a 180mm I will still want a 350mm or longer. The Hasselblad 350mm CF makes the most sense for the foreseeable future. Who knows when Leica will come out with their S 350mm or how much unobtainium it will cost.

    Great stuff Mark.

    I am still vacillating between the 120 and the 180 but I will probably get the 120 because I want macro capabilities. I just bought a mint Zeiss/Hassy V 350 SA which I love more than any other 300mm lens I have seen. ( I never tried a Leica Module lens but Kurt owned them all as I recall so he may have some thoughts on this manner.) So that would leave me with a lens stable of 35 S, 70S, 110 Zeiss, 120 S and 350 SA Zeiss. Should cover my needs near as I can see. The 180 of course doubles as a fine portrait lens but with the Hassy FE 110 2.0 my portraits needs are covered big time.

    Love to hear any comments from the various S2 users as to their lens experiences.

    Don't know about the Leica 350 pricing but used Hassy/Zeiss 350 SA's are still over $10K for a good quality lens! It is special but very expensive.

    I will post shots from it as soon as it arrives

    Hey Woody, had to chuckle at the phrase "should cover my needs...". As if that's ever stopped any of us from getting more gear On a more serious note I think you've got a heck of a lineup there and the 350 SA is as good as it gets.

    That 350 SA has to be one fo the mst desireabel lenses ever made - congratulations Woody!

    btw - has anyone had any issues with SilverFx Pro and S2 files? ona PC I can't get the stuff to process back LR3...

    and with Aperture I cant get the files to actually show up..

    WOW! A Zeiss 350SA ... can't wait to see what you get from that. The closest I ever got to that kind of optical power was a Zeiss/Contax 350 APO which I adored. I simply do not use a lens that long often enough to shell out the big bucks for one ... but it'd be interesting to see the results.

    Just give me a matched APO 1.4X extender for the 180AF and I'd be good for most anything. Also hoping for a 1:1 ELPRO for the 120 Macro like the R-100mm Macro. IMO, those two additions to the S system would provide more reasons to own both the 120 and 180.

    Still waiting for my 120 ... and waiting, and waiting ...

    You mentioned the 350mm SA a while back Woody. Clearly you were serious about it. Congratulations on finding one. You have a great lens line up planned.

    Al clued me into the 350mm SA a few months ago so I started looking. I was only able to find one on eBay and the price made me reprioritize my lens line-up. In fact it made the 180mm price seem more reasonable (if that's possible). I will get a 350mm eventually.

    Is there anything special about that 350 SA or is it just a very good and expensive lens ?

    Mark

    I have been waiting a long time for the 350 SA. If Leica do bring out a long lens for the S2, or as Marc Williams says an teleconverter for the 180 I may look again as autofocus still is a priority where possible. (Old eyes and all of that) If I ever do decide on such items, I believe that my 350SA, assuming I take pristine care of it (which I always do) will be worth at least what I paid for it. It is just that special a lens.

    Anyway, I look forward to posting some images with it. I should have it this week although my daughter delivers her new baby tomorrow and Phyllis and I are taking care of the other two boys so I have no idea how much free time I will have in the immediate future.

    Best

    Woody

    I got this lens from Son and you know how much gear he has to sell. I never say never but I hope this lineup takes care of all my shooting needs. Any more is just plain gear lust although there is nothing inherently wrong withy that!

    Hope to see you in Florida later this spring (Probably around May 15th

(Old eyes and all of that) If I ever do decide on such items, I believe that my 350SA, assuming I take pristine care of it (which I always do) will be worth at least what I paid for it. It is just that special a lens.

    Anyway, I look forward to posting some images with it. I should have it this week although my daughter delivers her new baby tomorrow and Phyllis and I are taking care of the other two boys so I have no idea how much free time I will have in the immediate future.

    Forget the lens chatter ... we better see some baby pictures with the S2 Woody!!!!!

    Best to shoot them right after birth ... then again at 6 months when they have some sort of personality to exhibit. Go Grandpa, GO!

    All the best,

    Hey Marc

    My plan is to be at the hospital with Heather (my daughter) and will start shooting just as soon as they let me do so. Usually I get to start beginning at the official weigh-in and then I just keep going. It will be flash of course but hopefully I will get some good images

    Woody,

    Don't be afraid to use ISO 320 or 640. With a bounced flash, you should be able to achieve a natural look. The S2 and the SF58 works exceptionally well together.

    Hi Woody,
    great to hear about your upcoming family member.
    We just got a little girl 4 weeks ago-I still would recommend to also bring a small and quiet camera. The first images I took were with an x1, you dont want to wake up a baby who just takes its first nap
    However after 4 weeks I think she is now used so much to the shutter of the S2 that it even helps to make her feel compfortable. I think my kids recognize me by the shutter sound of my cameras.

    Will do.

    In fact, after seeing what Mark accomplished at ISO 1250 with the birds I am willing to go for it. But as you know, hospitals are very dark and the fluorescent lighting terrible so I will still use flash. (Bounced of course)

    great image and great subject/weather - very interesting to look over and under the clouds at the same time.

    From this screen shot (and particular image), I can just imagine the DR captured by the S2. Lovely shot and as mentioned, interesting perspective from the vantage point it was taken from.
