Another one from Terranea. GXR P10
GXR with CV 21/4
Bravo! Good start! Nice high tec photo.
That image shows me that I have a large dust particle on the M mount sensor. Fortunately I brought a blower with me.
Here is some sunshine, agin the CV 21/4
GXR with CV 35/2.5
. . . . and another using the CV 35/25
I have a similar dust blob on a bunch of exposures I made at the Duxford air show in October. Easy to clone out, thankfully, and a squirt with a Giottos Rocket eliminated the dust.
The Skopar 21/4 performs beautifully on this camera. I had a 20x35 inch canvas wrap printed from part of a frame made with it ... effectively a 5-6 Mpixel original image ... and it looks terrific!
Time for some images I suppose.
Some call this the uglyest street of Amsterdam.
Little alley at dawn in a small town called Goes.
As is usual with the communicating series, Godfrey - lovely composition.
Here's another from the CV 35

Almost looks not like a reflection, confusing, but interesting, Keith!
Here are some from the harbour from today.

Gracias y hermosa foto, Gofredo!
These two took me a while in PP to get them right. I also made the mistake not watching my ISO settings. Still on 1250 in broad daylight!
The first one I had trouble with the foreground in the shadow to get some drawing in there.
But it is worth it, I think, because there are so many different objects asking for attention from the airplane up down to the mess.
I am going to change it again tommorow, because it is a little to harch to my taste. Too late now!
But working with these files one realizes more and more what a outstanding lenses Leica makes. A financial dangerous conclusion, but we all know that.
This photo was made in Rotterdam, stopping along the highway, also with the wrong 1250 ISO. Here I had a lot of trouble getting the colours right.
On my monitor, I can change the scene to the 17th century and see some of the Dutch light painted by one of the old masters.
But this is only a photograph, of course.
Joyeux NoŽl, Michiel
Yes - best not to think about Leica lenses. I have one very old one.
This is the CV 12
Nice to see the 12mm VC, Keith
I posted this in the Zeiss thread on the alternative gear forum as well.
Merry Christmas Michiel and everyone!
Michiel, I would expect trouble with longer FL lenses on the GRX. Because the sensor has offset microlenses to accommodate wides with short back focal lengths. I am curious if you had this issue with your 180mm /3.4 and see a pattern.
Vivek, Only went as far as the Leica 180/3.4. I did not see any problems at all. I will try my Canon 300 and Russian 500 mirror on it soon and let you know.
BTW I think this camera, besides your wish for a collapsable screen and better viewfinder, could be the camera for you, when I think of the way you work.
This was shot this afternoon with the Zeiss Biogon 25 set on 5.6 and infinity on the red line and just fire away. All sharp. Straight JPG, no PP, from camera.
With a 24 Summilux you would be in heaven A little expensive though.
It was quiet and peaceful this morning with soft light and fog outdoors. The canvas wrap I had made for my partner was hung yesterday, the holiday lights are up. What better time to make a photo of the living room for posterity?

lovely tones and smooth detail in that, rivercrew!
Thank you Godfrey and Michiel for your kind responses!
BTW, Michiel, the wide I plan on using on the GXR is a 2.5cm W-Nikkor-C. It fared well even on an Epson R-D1s. It is also as symmetric as a lens can get.
Godfrey, As luck would have it, I bought the less collectible but more versatile LTM version. Even at that time, the real Zeiss Topogon 25/4 (on which the W-Nikkor was based on) was well beyond my reach.
It appears that the images from the said combo were before me opening an account with Flickr. I did post quite few on photo.net, a while ago.
For those who have not seen it, Sam Waldron has done a nice critical review of the Ricoh m-mount sensor against that in the Sony Nex 5N
About 6 posts down . . . .
Sorry . . . . here is the link
The proof is there but Ricoh's publicity campaign is nowhere compared to that of Sony and Panasonic. Thanks, I am happy
Michiel - there are some wonderful windows in your location - please don't run out of them!
Here is a lifeboat
GXR with Jupiter 9 85/2
This one is taken in old Panama City - tomorrow the Canal
GXR with P10
Entering the first of the Miraflores Locks (Pacific side of Panama Canal) at 6:30am just before sunrise
[QUOTE=Vivek;I don't know where you found your M mount GXR, Michiel?[/QUOTE]
Send you a PM
Went out last evening and walked around a local shopping area:
All with the GXR-M + Skopar 28mm f/3.5 in pretty dim circumstances, so ISO 2500, wide open, 1/15-1/8 second.
PESO 2011 series:
Leaving Panama Canal at the Gatun locks. One car carrier half way down, another just to our left. Looking straight at the Caribbean with a rain squall coming through. 8 hour passage in the canal.
@ Godfrey; nice grainy streetshot!
@ Keith; Fantastic spot, fantastic shot!
