    Milich LTM adapter shots....

    It took most of the day but the rain eventually stopped and the sun came out this afternoon. Here are a few shots with the CV75 and CV12.

    Where the bridge hits land is actually a pretty long distance!
    ISO 400 (my mistake forgot to change it) CV75

    ISO 100 CV12

    Cranked the fill light to 100 to see what would happen

    Your location says New york city but that looks like the Oakland Bay Bridge from SF. What bridge is it?

    The pictures look great with the lens. On the longer shot did you use a tripod?

    I just moved to SF but I can still use TEBnewyork because I kept my NY apartment

    So, yes it is the bay bridge from the outdoor patios at my new digs. All shots were handheld. I wasn't really thinking and at ISO400 I actually had to stop down a bit to not blow the exposure (I was maxed out at 1/4000). So, there should have been plenty of speed to combat some camera shake but it was very windy.

    Dammit... That 12 looks *very* good (and the shadows opened up pretty nicely too!) and here I was getting ready to lower the price on the one I have in the B&S. May need to rethink that one...

    I agree a beautiful rendering...I prefer the first shot and would try fill at 10-15% then maybe curves to linear contrast to correct for the flattening of the picture. Very nice.

    Jack, the 12 is a great lens for the price and on my list if I return to Leica silicon ... the G1 has great color and DR from what I am seeing. Wish they had a calibrated external optical VF.

    Yeah, I hear you Bob --- It has been excellent on my M8 so no way it could suck on the smaller sensor of the G1. I will hang onto it now until a better AF wide prime solution comes along...

    Yeah Guy and I were perplexed when you put it up for sale and were buying the G1. Let's see what happens when the 7-14 f4 lens is released.
