    TIA, Cheers Barry
    Thanks Barry. No, I haven't.

    The 15/4.5 E-mount became just available again but has the same copy variation problem. Voigtländer doesn't admit they have a problem, according to this email from them. Voigtlander 15/4.5 III E-mount Rolling review - FM Forums
    So, getting a good one will continue to be a crap shoot. No thanks at this time.

    I am using Choppy on my TechArt Pro autofocus adapter that also enters the focal length into the Exif. I can live with that and have AF and 5-axis IBIS image stabilization. Techart PRO AF adapter now In Stock at B&H Photo - FM Forums

    I really like as well my E-Mount 10/5.6. Here AF is not important, simply set focus to infinity, aperture to f/9, and shoot to get a sharp image pretty much almost into the corners. F/8 or f/9 seems to be the sweet spot, slightly improving the corners over f/5.6. I am using f/9 or f/11 a lot for increased DoF.
    With best regards, K-H.

    Thanks again Karl bringing me up to date with the situation, most appreciated......Not sure then if I can even be bothered taking another chance on getting yet another 15mm again, that's if Voigtlander can't address a problem experienced by many of us...Might now try the CV12mm "E" mount or the 12mm Laowa, depending upon which one comes out on top...Cheers Barry

    Thanks Barry.

    You may want to have a look at the 10/5.6 as well. So far only very few copy variation issues have surfaced.

    http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/top...433/0#13680289

    The bulk of the 10/5.6 lenses delivered, including mine, are sharp in the center and across the lens except for the extreme corners at f/5.6. No smearing though, as happens for many of the 15/4.5 III VM- or E-mounts, including the one I sent back. Of course, a good copy of the 15/4.5 III, such as Choppy, has sharp corners even wide open that minimally improve by f/5.6.

    A Voigtländer 10/5.6 lens is different in this sense, only the very extreme corners never get completely sharp.
    But for my taste they are sharp enough and have no smearing.
    Please have a look at my 10/5.6 lens, full resolution, f/5.6-f/22.

    https://winklers.smugmug.com/KHW/Pic...rner/i-LrHfSJ3

    My lens seems typical for most of these lenses delivered.

    Barry, please let us know about your take on the CV12mm "E" mount or the 12mm Laowa. TIA

    Cheers, Karl-Heinz

    Thanks for that Karl that's all very helpful, will do ...the 10mm does indeed seem less troublesome as you say (glad you got yourself a good'un)...It's amazing that they can get the 10mm so right, yet they can still screw up some of the 15mm lenses now in it's 3rd generation!!!...I have had a sum total of 4 number 15mm lenses from Voigtlander since the Mk1 and not one of them was particularly good in the corners...enough is enough for me.
    The 12mm FL with up to a x1.5 crop will take me to 18mm, so that joins up nicely with the 21mm Loxia or I can revert back to my 16-35mm FE which performs pretty decent at 16mm...anyway thanks for bringing me up to date...I knew that you would :-)

    The long walk back from the Dartmoor quarry to my car just as it was getting dark.

    Hahaha, great shirt on your son lucille. Is there an online store for that?
    Barry, I have to copy Karls words, very nice!
    f1.0, I like both shots. First for the special use of the SR-app and second for the separation in the front.
    Annna, thank you for this update. You showed one of the old shots several months ago and I was wondering how this place changed over time. Happy you showed us.

    As I'm re-organize my workplace, workspace and picture library at the moment, I stumbled over a shot from Silvester last year. Some may remember, we had no snow fall in december. So I made a hike above 2500m at 31.12.2015 instead of skying. As the ground was frozen and very very dry the grass had an unnatural color from yellow to bordeaux. The mountain is the Piz Curvér (rhaeto-romanic: crow mountain). It has an altidute of 2971m.

    The fishing net makes that picture IMO, it is more than just the beautiful silhouette of the man and construction.

    The "Ritz", was nicknamed so by the workers themselves, because it contrasted with the previous rudimentary facilities they knew before. Here they got both showers and bathrooms. If I remember correctly, the workers were distributed in small dormitories housing six persons each, in bunk beds. At the peak of the construction works, there were about 1600 workers busy there, mostly miners. Now the cable car brings the tourist at the top of the dam.

    The right-wards tilt of the horizon makes it look as though the jetty will be engulfed by the sea at any moment.

    Taken last night crossing Dartmoor.
    Alison and I climbed up Littaford Tor in search of some light as it was dark in the valley below.








    UPDATE...B&W version (Alison's preferred version)

    Barry, there are some green/cyan stripes in the red/purple on the stone to the right and also in the meadow to the very left.

    The sky is great, but the ground has a little bit too much contrast and red for my taste.

    Thanks Seb for the feedback...Alison confirms your findings I should have run it past her before uploading...My colour blindness and over processing trying to open up the shadows are to blame...apologies everybody
    Hopefully this is a bit better...

    Beautiful!

    I simply love these kind of silhouettes. Thanks for posting. Will see if I can dig some up.
    Thanks Pradeep. I had to leave my hotel at 5.00 am to catch the sunrise. Fortunately, it was low tide that morning and I was able to go further out from the beach. Bali can be very touristy and crowded in many of the places. But most tourists are still asleep and will not get up at 5.00 am to shoot sunrise.

    Thanks Anna. The fisherman threw the net in several directions, but this image with the net just touching the water is about the best of the series. To capture this image, I shot in Continous mode, something I rarely do. The small island with the 2 structures adds an element of interest in this image as well.

    A guy crossing the desert in a jeep runs out of gas. After waiting an hour or so suddenly a bee comes along and asks what the problem is. Once he understands he goes to the jeep and urinates in the tank and tells the guy it's enough to get to the next village. He starts the jeep and just before leaving he asks the bee "can I do that as well, urinate in the tank and get going again?". The bee responds, and says "Nope, only BP works"

    Wistman's Wood - Wistman’s Wood | Legendary Dartmoor
    Nestled on the eastern slopes of the West Dart river stands a wood of dwarf oak trees. Once you walk into the tangled web of trees you are transported into a mystical world of moss carpeted boulders, lichens of all descript, finger like oak branches, all engulfed in a wonderful smell of earth and age. For millennia this small, mystical, stunted woodland has been held in awe and for many fear.

    "The wood is said to be the kennels where the diabolical ‘Wisht Hounds‘ are kept. These are a pack of fearful hell hounds who hunt across the moors at night in search of lost souls and unwary traveller’s"

    Well, I bought 1.5kg of apricots du valais and it reminded me at the discussion we had in this thread a few weeks ago:

    These are not the best shots, but I was busy... CAKE!

    I dare say this looks much better in monochrome than it would in color. Like it!

    I agree completely. When I am on my wildlife trips we typically get up well before 5AM to be able to get to the location before sunrise and watch as the mist slowly dissolves around us, revealing the stories of the night. Sometimes it is a pride feeding on a freshly killed wildebeest, sometimes it is a pair of large Red lechwe resting in a meadow, but it is always beautiful even if it brings home the harsh reality of nature.

    Nothing like getting up early to greet the world
