    Thorkil, I agree. And I will play with the distortion setting more to see if I can improve on it.

    In fact you are touching on a question I would like to ask of your or perhaps anyone on the forum with experience of using Tilt-Shift lenses.

    Would a TS lens fully eliminate such distortions?

    Louis a TS lens will help for these kind of architectural shots to get everything straight, but likely it will become tripod work. Don't know if you fancy that.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Hi Louis
    I'm not expirienced with TS-lenses (but I would guess)
    But Keystone is often used 100% (and I nearly often think it looks weird), and I often tend to think that some natural distortion is better than 100% correction, because thats the way our eyes see it, but our mind know that the lines ought to be vertical, and do the "psykological" correction. And when the Keystones try to do the same, at 100%, it goes wrong. It has to be a compromise then, and one has to find a "naturel" hand-made(/individuel)balance between right and wrong, I think.

    Edge blur at open aperture, but no smearing and no color shift,
    Stopping down one aperture is a significant increase in quality.
    It is very sharp, the slight chromatic aberration is quickly disappeared in C1.

    It is quite small and compact.

    I would prefer f1.4. Canon 1.4 / 24mm is very good, but for me too great and the Summilux 24mm is too expensive.

    I hope Voigtländer will bring an M-mount at the Photokina.


    The Zuiko has the character of old lenses.
    If you like this, you'll be very happy with the lens

    really good

    small edits in C1Pro, no post with Photoshop

    but, its not a good solution for architecture
    The distortion looks like a dovetail

    .... but for landscape, it's nice

    sorry for the size

    Wow Cindy, those are great shots. Very editorial. Was the "Rosie" theme for a specific editorial use, or a conceptual portrait?

    VERY Leica looking using a Sony body … proving that glass counts a lot. Which version of the R50 Lux was used?

    Thank you, Marc. It was a concept shoot. The model specializes in pin-up and was game for the Rosie-the-riveter theme. We were battling rain and drizzle, so the sky was like a huge soft-box. The location was an early 1900's foundry building, which is soon to be torn down. They could not allow us to go inside, because of safety concerns. That would have been really great.

    My lens is the 1st version, series 7, but it never disappoints me.

    Cindy,

    I love the colors!. At first, I wasn't a fan of the 50mm FL, but you've proved how useful it can be. The overcast is simply perfect with no contrasty shadows, but blends color so nicely.

    Thanks, Johnny. The 50mm focal length is my favorite. My favorite M lens is the 50 rigid that I was so lucky to get from you. It has great color. I like my 1937 Contax CZJ 50 f/1.5 for its unique draw. My Japanese Summilux Canon 50 f/1.4 is great on contrasty days. I have a 50 f/2 10 blade Summitar on my M2. And last, but not least, the 50mm f/1.8 FE!

    Cindy,

    I'm glad your enjoying the 50 rigid! I miss that lens and will probably look for more leica glass for my A7. Did you post any pics taken with the 1937 Contax? I'd love to see the rendering of that too. Keep up the great work!

    Lovely photos, Cindy!
    That Summilux-R 50 is just a delightful lens, isn't it?

    I have to pull out my Nikkor 50/1.2 AI-S and compare it sometime. I know it's quite different in rendering style, particularly at and near wide open ... :-)

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Apologies for rehashing the same old images again of the Fishermen at Sennen but I just thought the old fashioned antique postcard type treatment kind of suited the subject matter perhaps better than the conventional saturated colour images that I posted earlier. Actually the real truth is I am not getting much free time at the moment to go out and take any new snaps!
    A quick update as I have received a number of PM's from members...Many thanks.
    My Mum is now back at home from hospital and is doing amazingly well, she can now walk about the bungalow unaided (out of the wheelchair) but both are suffering from severe memory loss, needless to say they still need quite a lot of supervision during the day. The OT and PT have been absolutely brilliant helping them both at home and the BT lifeline telephone support gives us back our evenings...Cheers Barry.

    A7R + 55mm FE All done with a preset I made in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2.

    Thank you very much!

    It was a coincidence or an accident, i was trying to get the composition of those architectural design or windows of the mosque on the wall in perspective, and by sudden one worker was passing, so i took the shot to have a human element in the shot, it adds more than if i shoot that image without a human there even it will be good as well.

    In fact, i have to return back to enjoy photography to have good shots, most of the time when i go online including this site and watching many with latest and so expensive gear with wonderful beautiful shots from beautiful places i feel i can't do anything and i must give up, but i hate to give up something i love.

    Barry,

    Good to hear your mum is doing better.
    I like the antiqued postcard look, but I'd rather the age-color was a bit less. It seems just a hair too deep.
