    Beautiful photos
    You have the 0.95er well under control!

    One can be jealous.

    I guess someone out there will make some shots of the Chinese new year festivities. This year it was quite small and not much crowd (weather?) either.


    G1, 50/0.95, ISO100, 1/13s. slight crop


    G1, 25/0.95, ISO200, 1/20s. crop

    Barring subject motion, I am pleasantly surprised with the handling of the 25 +G1 combo (similar in a way to the 50/0.95) for low shutter speed snaps.

    Thank you, YBH.

    Thanks you, Lupo. I am very lucky to get hold of this lens.

    really stunning and lovely draw! all of them,, really, but i'm a b/w gal.

    excuse my ignorance -- i know the 50mm is an Angenieux, but i didn't realise there was a 25/0.95.... tell me, tell me!

    These are all very beautiful Vivek, very nice framing and great light, and I love the rendering of this lens!

    Jorge, Steen, Cam and David,Thanks for your kind words. Greatly appreciate it.

    David, If I had seen a typical dpreview, run of the mill, test of this lens, I would not have gone near it! I lucked out. Every time I take the lens out, I pinch myself for a reality check.

    Cam, The Angenieux 25/0.95 is an Arriflex mount lens (See: http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5045). The 50/0.95 used here is a Canon 50/0.95 (the last version TV lens in M mount) and not the Angenieux X-ray (collimating) lens modified for M mount on eBay.

    It was great celebration here in NYC. I only had time on my lunch hour. Would have loved to have spent the day. All with the G1 and kit lens.

    Was wondering around the International Village Mall in Chinatown Vancouver yesterday.

    A very low light opportunity to say the least. I shot mostly auto ISO with an 800 limit. Using the 14-45 Kit.

    Today the New Year's parade is happening in Chinatown - but the weather is horrible (mixed rain and snow)... Hopefully it will clear before Noon.

    Best to all. Terry
