    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    I've been temped by the idea of selling my 45 and 70 for the 30-90mm.
    Never used this zoom personaly. The owners feedback is variable, from brilliant at 30 to 70mm to clearly weaker than the 70 prime at f5.6. It looks like the zoom is a very good option for wide angle as we mostly shoot at f8 to f16 anyway. But if you're used to your 70mm you will have hard time selling it for the zoom.

    I stopped thinking about the zoom when I realized that a D810 + 24/70mm (new version soon) is half the cost of this lens. A D810 + 24/70mm is also 30% lighter than a S + 30-90mm. If some flexibility is needed I'd prefer this option.

    anGy: I´d go in 2-3 primes rather than 30-90 which is bulky and "only" f/3.5-5.6

As it is I have the 24, 35, 70 and 180 and it covers everything I want to do commercially and for fun but the zoom is interesting.

    Non-scientific. But every time I see an image from the zoom, I like it. I'd pick one up if I could get over the speed.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    I had the zoom for a while but sold it and now I use the 45 and 70 lenses, within that range. Main reasons: (a) the primes are faster (was especially important with the S2, now with my S007 is less of a consideration), (b) my primes are the CS versions (starting to use that functionality with the fantastic Profoto B1 strobe heads), (c) the zoom has a 95 mm filter thread (shared with the 24mm but not with other S lenses), (d) as with all zooms, the hood has to be wide enough not to cause vignetting at the widest setting which makes it more or less useless at the longest setting.

    Mat,
    I use the zoom quite a bit and am happy to do so. Interestingly, I used to avoid zooms on other systems as I found I would go to either extreme focal length versus in between. But on the S, the 30-90 zoom is my standard lens and great for walking around. Not that much bigger or heavier than the other prime lenses.

    1. There are some shots that require precise choice of focal length and one cannot move forward or backward. In this shot, I was shooting from one balcony to another so no way to move closer or farther away without walking on air.

    2. In the wet or in dust, I don't have to change lenses. The sensor stays cleaner.

    3. The slowness of the zoom is not an issue with the 007 ISO range or with a tripod for the 006.

    4. When using filters, you only need one. Very handy when using ND graduated with a polarizer.

    5. I use it in place of owning a 70mm. It has also pretty much eliminated my using my first S lens much, the 35mm.

    5. No center shutter, but if one is using strobes, one is usually shooting with a prime lens anyway.

    6. Going wide to 30mm in interiors, I can see just a bit of distortion on straight lines at the very edge, but usually when shooting interiors, I have switched to my 24mm. Outdoors, I cannot detect any distortion on wide or any other focal length. The shot shown here is about 55mm, and the lines are straight.

    7. I switch to my 120 when shooting portraits seriously so I can best control DOF to get out of focus backgrounds.

    So my set up is a 24mm for super wide, the zoom, and a 120mm. The 35mm, sits at home now. The cost of a zoom is high, but there are enough of them out there that one can save money by purchasing used now. With the zoom, I passed on purchasing the 45mm or the 30mm, and never owned the 70mm.

    I hope this is helpful.

    Jack

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    Hi Jack

    Very helpful, thanks! I've never been a zoom user on any system, I like primes and don't care about carrying the weight but the 30-90 is tempting. I've asked my dealer to send me one to try so I'll see. I have 24, 35, 70 and 180, bought the 100 and sold it on, tried the 120 and went back to the 180 as my portrait lens but commercially, almost everything is shot wide, I think I'd use it a lot with the 24 for interiors and stuff, sounds a lot like how you use yours.

    Hopefully next week I will have some experience using it and can make an informed decision, thanks again for your input though, good to read how others are using theirs.

    Cheers

    Mat

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    I have been tempted several times. But then with the S006 I often shoot my primes in the f2.0-4.0 range, so I am a little afraid that the Zoom might only work for me in very bright light. (I am not a tripod shooter and also often have moving subjects in the image)
    With the S007 (which I dont own) this is maybe less of an issue except I dont know how bokeh compares.
    If the price wasnt so steep I would probably own a 30-90 additionally to the primes and then see over the times if it can replace part of my primes or if I would want boths.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    the early 10EE had a motor-generator powering a variable speed DC drive motor. i used that for a few years, replacing brushes and bearings (I bought the lathe in 1985). eventually put it an inverter frequency control and AC motor. works great. monarchs later had giant DC rectifier tubes; good luck maintaining those.

    not to sound greedy, but i have two 10EE's; one in both my NY and CA shops.

    now i'm sniffing around for a Hardinge HLVH and maybe a Deckel mill

    I've posted a pic of my Hardinge previously in this thread - do you want to see my Deckel? Here it is as I was setting up a metal work area in my shed...
    I recently added an OkumaLS I sourced from Boeing here in Australia - a beautiful 1960's example - still smooth as butter...

    I've always wanted a Monarch - because I think they are the most beautiful looking lathe - upgrading the electrics is the way to go - I agree the tubes are a turnoff.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    have always loved the lathe; first project was a brass cannon (of course) about 4" long, made when i was about 8.
    have about 6 now, all sorts, but the old american models, South Bend, Leblond, Monarch and Hardinge are pretty cool, have a nice Cochester as well and a remarkable Okuma CNC lathe that has made many Leica parts and supercharger pulleys (i'm still 8)

    and Stuart, i bought the 006 and 100S; was able to carry one around in one hand most of the day, too! still have to fine tune my usage, but am liking it so far. especially handy to slap on the blad v lenses

    Hi Stuart I use the lathe and milling machines to make all sorts of tools/repair improve things on motorbikes and farm machinery. Manual machinery is easier to use and faster to use than CNC machinery - for one offs.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    I am envious of your skill! Always good to learn new skills so that you can do things yourself...recently I learned how to truly and properly sharpen knives, so as to keep some nice Japanese knives that I use in the kitchen in top shape, and I also took up sewing so that I could tailor my own shirts and trousers, though I still have a long way to go with that!

    In keeping with Mat's idea, here is a photo from the farm where I often stay. This is from last Easter...I got stuck out there for an extra five days after a storm dumped a lot of snow. The road out to the farm is 15km from a town of 20 people, which itself is only accessible via boat or mountain jeep in the winter. I had taken an enormous jeep over the pass that came with supplies for Easter, but they will only drive it in ideal conditions, and the sea was too rough to take a boat, so we had to wait an extra five days before it was safe to get back over the pass. This one is my friend Spóla, who was exploring a bit in the fresh snow while I took pictures. Apologies if I already shared it...I can never remember. I do not share many photos online these days! So much work in just taking them...I general only post ones that I publish or have in exhibitions.

    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!

    Jack,

    How do you like the 007 compared to the 006? I have an 007 on order, but am still curious about any differences in rendering from the 006.

    There is no difference in rendering to my eye for normal 006 stuff. I have the 006 still, and have shot some direct comparisons. But I admit, I have not yet done prints side by side. There is a difference in what I am willing to try to shoot, and capture.
    The extra DR allows me to shoot interiors with natural light, and still have the exterior be exposed correctly. This is a game changer. Oh maybe with less DR on the 006 I could have achieved close to the same after an hour in LR and PS, but I frankly wouldn't have tried. I really wanted more pixels on the 007 for bragging rights, but in truth, I would prefer the DR, since I successfully sold very large prints including 7.5'x5' with the current S resolution.
    The higher ISO is wonderful of course. The buffer never fills, and that helps my shooting better.

    David Farkas did a test between the M 9 and the M 240 and no one could tell the difference, except for higher ISO. I would not expect him to bother on the S comparison.

    The difference is there. But it's not going to be the same as the difference between the M9 and M240. In real world usage you'll find the S-007 shifts just slightly to the greens (not like the M240). If you manage your orange/yellow skin tones you can shift it a slight bit pink and be fine. Though I was using it in Singapore where the light quality is terrible. So it might not even be so noticeable in other areas of the world.

    The JPG files out of the S-006 look better to my eye. It's the contrast. But easily achieved in the S-007 in a click with the curves adjustment. IF that's what you want to do of course.

    And of course DF did a comparison between the M9 and M240, and nobody could tell.. You can make almost any file look similar to another file if you have the time and energy (I said similar but not the same). BTW, I did his test and I think I was around 90%+ accurate. I think I messed up on 3-5 images

    I'd keep my S-007 pre-order if I were you. Simply speaking, it is a far more responsive camera. You'll get the feeling that Leica has gotten back on track. It's actually one of the reasons I'm so confidently awaiting my SL.

    Mat,

    Is that from an 007? The pearly light of shots into brightly lit mist or fog really makes my jaw drop on good CCD sensors (Phase backs, M9, or 006). If the 007 can do that, too, then that ends the CCD vs. CMOS debate as far as I'm concerned.

    Beautiful!

    006!

    I think that highlight handling on the ccd sensor is what sets it apart ever so slightly.

    I'm am relatively inexperienced, have almost no experience with CCD, and took the Reddot poll with the mindset of choosing the images that I liked the most. In all but two of the images, I chose the M9. Do you think I would still see the difference between post-processed S006 and S007 files?

    Yep, you will see the difference. But I'm not sure if you went about "picking the best" that you would necessarily pick the S-006 over the S-007 on all cases. Though that slightly yellow/green color shift is there. Similar to newer lenses. Funny I wonder what causes it?

    Let's put it this way. I'm a lot more comfortable editing S-007 files then I was when I first started editing M240 files. Perhaps because I had all that practice with the M240, and the S-007 is similar.. But I don't think so. I think the S-007 is just more carefully calibrated in camera to produce a more appealing Leica color profile. Whereas the M240 felt sloppy in it's built-in profile.


    Though if you ask Leica techs in Germany (as I did). They will tell you the two M cameras are 99% identical in color values. And that the values are so minimally different that you couldn't perceive it with your eye. Or some nonsense like that.. I obviously don't believe them.



    Conclusion is.. I think the S-007 is vastly improved in ALL areas. So much so that I don't think color preference will sway you, if you feel the need to upgrade from your current body.

    I think I'd keep both cameras. Especially with the used market pricing right now on EVERYTHING photography related.

    DFarkas also suggests purchasers of the 007 who have the 006 just keep both.

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    My first 2 images taken with my S2 / 70mm
    Now I need some help on deciding which is the next lens I should purchase.
    Primarily landscapes.

    Hey Steven, thanks for posting these as I have been looking for 70mm lens shots. Have you thought about perhaps turning #1 into a bw? It's nice and sharp and a good subject for bw.

    So far really liking the 70, now I wish I could only afford the 45.

    Hi Steven, I would say next lens would be 35mm. But I dont know what you shoot and need.
    I like the images. Best, Tom

    Re: S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    I have the 24 and 35, both are excellent landscape lenses depending on what you like, that said, I use the 180 and 70 for landscapes a lot too, I often find myself stitching with the 70mm, it was the first lens I got and used it for everything for 6 months. I shot aurora with the 70 last night, image over on the fun with mf page.

    Enjoy the system, it's a great thing to use.

    Hey Stuart! I'm in the North for another week but may have a day in Reykjavik before I fly a week Tuesday so will pop in and say hi. You can have a try with the 007 if you've not already picked one up.

    Mat
    Sounds good. I would be excited to meet you both (you and the 007)! Just message me if you are around, so I can make sure to be there.

    I hope your weather is as clear as ours...
