    Wonderful colours, Georg, and really nice photos - I like the one with the Colony Hotel the best, for the evening atmosphere. Regards, Martin

    They're becoming available. I bought mine from Derek Danois ("ddanois") who found it at Allen's Camera in Pennsylvania. It's a wonderful lens.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    I'm not sure how true it is but the last time I inquired about the 30-90 (before receiving and selling it to Joe) I was told that Leica US was receiving about 1 piece per month.

    It's worth checking with some of the Leica stores directly to see what the expected time frame might be as of today.

    Touching up some S2 pix from the last summer; this is from the Mamiya 200mm F2.8 APO probably at F2.8. One of my favorite medium format lenses. More 200mm APO pix here.

    Just to make resisting a bit more difficult: There was a Leica representative responsible for the S System at my dealer yesterday. We talked about the zoom and I told him that I was very happy with it. He then showed me prints of test pics done by a German pro (sorry--forgot the name) with 30+ years of experience. He shot a Porsche 911 in his studio with studio lightning comparing the zoom a 30, 35, 70 and 90 mm with the 30, 35, 70 and 120 primes. Tripod, mirror lock--the whole thing. The full frame shots showed the entire back of the car even with some space to the left and right. He than had prints (aprox 35x55 cm) showing just half of the number plate and a bit around it (I assume 100% crops or pretty close). The only difference you could see was that the zoom had slightly more micro contrast. In other words: If there is a discernible IQ difference, the zoom may actually have the edge.

    This means that, from an IQ / picture taking point of view, the only / main reason to shoot with the primes is that they are faster. This is IF you want to the very narrow depth of field they offer. For many occasions, I actually want more depth of field than I get from my 35 and 70 wide open.

    Of course, there are other reasons why the primes may be preferable (CS, less weight etc.)

    The other comment that he made was that the 350 mm project is apparently dead. He said Leica had done a calculation for the lens, and it would have cost about 10k EUR and the weight would have been about 4kg. So it seems that for long glass, the Hassy lenses plus adapter is the way to go--at least for the foreseeable future.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    10,000 euro? That's all? I would have thought 15-20,000 euro for that lens...the big APO modul system was 15-20000 dollars for one lens back during the R system, wasn't it? Not saying I would buy one, but 10K Euros for 4kg of Leica glass seems like they would be pricing it pretty aggressively...
    Given how good the Leica lenses and designs are, I think they would be better off designing a very good tele-converter to go with the 180mm (in fact, my guess is that they are already working on it...it seems like a no-brainer). I used the 2x APO converter with the 180mm on the R system, and while it made the lens a little dark, it was still incredibly sharp wide open. You did lose a bit of quality, but when it is so high to start it is barely noticeable, and certainly preferable to spending tens of thousands of euros on a lens that you might use only occasionally. If you are a nature photographer and always use a 350, it's a shame, but for everyone else it would probably be a better option.

    P.S. A few years ago I found a great deal on a 350mm f/4 FE lens, which I purchased. It has an interesting look, especially when used on medium distance subjects, but I have not found it to be all that useful on the S2. Sure, it covers the focal length, but the performance on 40mp is not that good until you stop it down to f/8 or higher, and at that point the shutter speeds are usually quite low which makes it more useful for landscape and static objects than for fast moving ones like wildlife. I think if you want a truly bang-on lens for this focal length for the S2, your best bet is probably the pricey Superachromat, 300 f/2.8 FE monster, or the H series version.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Or the amazing 350/4 Zeiss lens for Contax 645, used with the recently announced S-C adapter. With autofocus, autoaperture etc. That lens can be purchased for around Eur3000 second hand. It is very big an heavy though. But possibly better than the 300 mm lens for the H system.

    If thats true, it would be really sad. But I do not understand the logic of the arguments. Prices was never an issue with Leica products. Stuart is right, just take a look at the prices of the Leica R 1:4/400 mm Apo-Telyt-R. The argument regarding the weight is also quite strange, long glass has is weight. Here as well the weight of the 400 mm Apo-Telyt-R is 3850g. So whats the big deal? I hope the Leica guy you meet is a salesman and does not have all the infos.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Georgs beautiful images have added to my interest in the S Zoom. I am curious about its mechanics; does the lens barrell extend during zooming and/or focusing and if so, does the hood move with it or is its mount fixed as is that of the 120?

    Having loads of undeveloped S2 pictures, coming from a discussion with my wife about MM, M9-P, M240 and the S, I thought this is a good time to post a S shot. The S is still one of the most amazing cameras I have ever used.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Well, I have not really been posting many photos to web forums lately, but I feel inspired by the thread! Here are a few photos taken with the S2, all in Iceland, where I live. I have been working on a series with the working title of Neopolitans...basically, the idea is to have an interplay between the sky, horizon and earth. We often get interesting weather conditions here where the sky, horizon and foreground are all in fairly different states. So these are all roughly composed that way. Most of these are from East Iceland, one of the most beautiful places I have seen.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Thank you both! I have more in the series, from the M9 as well (it actually started it), but I still have not arranged them in an internally consistent way. It needs more work, in any case. I just wish we would get some summer here...almost July and it is still cold and rainy! We might not even have summer this year I guess...that said, most of these were taken in autumn, so I guess it doesn´t really matter after all!

    You want summer ill trade you 118 today for whatever you got. The snakes are hiding.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    9.7C/49F and Cloudy. Hasn't really been out of the 50s this summer. Generally we get up to the 60s, at least on nice days...been cloudy or rainy most of June though. Usually I am fine with the weather here, but it has been a really cold spring and summer...just a bit too cool this year. You can keep your 118 though!

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    After waiting nearly 18 months, I finally got a Lee Big Stopper.
    Anxious to experiment, I went to the Virginia Museum where there
    is a staircase alongside of which is a stepped waterfall, and at the
    top of which is a terrace with small falls.

    Attached are the first two images with the Big Stopper. It
    certainly encourages "creativity", but there is a large element
    of "trial and error" for each image to achieve the desired amount
    of "creaminess" or just the right amount of suggestive movement.
    (e.g. the light swirls in the horizontal image are pollen pods
    moving through the swirling water.)

    Noteworthy, the S2 had no issues with the longer (up to 35 seconds)
    exposures. There was slight magenta toning on the vertical image
    perhaps from the viewfinder which I forgot to cover. But, this was not
    an issue when converted to B&W (Nik Silver Effex).

    The S2's "long exposure correction" really works to eliminate any
    "noise", although it does test your patience in the field waiting for
    it to count down from say 35 seconds!

    That said (see above), the S2 does well with just a ND gradient (4x5)
    held in front of the 70mm lens. Again, it is trial and error as to how
    long to expose to create the effect.

    Perhaps it's a make up call for the double summer last year. Fabulous, and unusually warm weather, as I recall.

    !!

    I hope this doesn't affect the price of the Contax 645 350mm Teleapotessar. I have almost figured out how to pay for a used S2 and the Contax 350.

    Oh well... I'm enjoying the pictures posted here.

    First time using S 120mm for a macro flower shot, wish I had the micro prism screen... If anyone knows the name of this flower please let me know

    Good Morning Yong,
    Your beautiful image is of a passion flower of the Passiflora genus, most likely a hybrid variety.
    A word to the wise here: if you buy one of the microprism focusing screens, install it VERY carefully. I had a great bit of difficulty with mine and ended up scratching it badly, nor do I believe that I am the first to do so. I believe that they are packaged upside down but am not certain about this.

    Douglas Benson.

    Multitasking


    This is Epiphyllum strictum, an epiphytic, thornless, night blooming cactus that grows wild on my property. The flowers are very fragrant but short-lived; by mid morning they are wilted and the previously crystalline white petals are tawny. This image was shot at ~6:00 AM all the while I was feeding the mosquito hoards.

    Nice! The Chinese often associate these flowers with women of extreme beauty... short-lived, and only show their beauty at night.

    Can the 30-90 zoom replace the primes in terms of depth of field? Zoom users, do you ever find yourself in need of shallower DOF?

    Looks like the theme now is flower images taken with the 120 Macro . Here's a picture of a Gloriosa Rotschildiana, growing wildly in the Bigodi Swamp in Uganda. I had no idea what this flower was called, however my mother knew.

    I think on the short end (30 and 35mm) the difference between the zoom and the primes is negligible. As regards the 70 mm, while one cannot obtain the extreme narrow DOF of the prime, the zoom still permits to isolate the subject.

    In fact, this was one of my concerns when I got the zoom, and it turned out not to be an issue in practice. Also, if I want really narrow DOF, I take the 120.

    Having said that, while I may part with the 35, I have no intention to part with the 70. Not only because of its superb rendering and narrow DOF, but also because of size and weight.

    Hi...I am new here. Just got the S2 and 2 lenses (70/35mm) few days ago. I am glad I bought them. It's a remarkable system and the lenses are the best!
    Thanks to Douglas, Joe, Derek, Cenek and Rob for your kind advices.
    Special thanks to Derek and Rob for sending me files to look at and Joe who sold me this fantastic lens (shipping the lens even before receiving the payment )
    Best
