    G1 on the road to Moab

    Well I took the G1 on the trip to Moab with stops in Sedona, Winslow, Canyon De Chelly and Moab as spots i did get the chance to play with the camera. When in Moab though I lent the G1 out to a workshop member that was using something that just was not functioning correctly so he used that in Moab and Monument Valley. So i had some time with it and it is a kick to use. I did get a chance to use the Leica 28 elmarit and Tri-Elmar (Wate) with it the Wate was pretty handy. Anyway these are just for the record nothing great but just wanted to shoot. I used the Leica 28mm in Sedona at the creek and the Wate in Winslow and the rest the two Pana lenses. I am just going to load them all up and there are a lot. LOL

    2nd one is the Kit lens the rest leica 28mm 2.8

    I think all of these are with the long zoom. That is Mike Hatam one of our moderators and good friend. Mike taught Lightroom on this trip

    The Summicron shot stands out, Guy. Skin tones are very well rendered.

    I can't see any difference between the WATE and the kit zoom images.

    Re: G1 on the road to Moab

    Yes pretty close actually . The WATE is better but the price is much higher. Hard to beat the Leica glass but if you do not have a M8 with the glass already than buying Leica glass to stick on a G1 makes little sense to me. The kit lens is really good and the long zoom is great at 200mm making it a very powerful 400mm effectively

    Guy... if you did not state which lens, it is hard to guess. The G1 is fun & makes us excited about testing the possible combinations... Can't wait for the 20 1.7(?).

    Enjoyed the series.

    Robert.

    Re: G1 on the road to Moab

    Yes without that you would have no clue on which lens. Which is really pretty exciting that the kit lenses do produce great images

    Damn. Wish you hadn't posted the ones taken with the 45-200. I was trying so hard to make excuses for not buying it ...

    Re: G1 on the road to Moab

    I know and at 200mm maybe it's best focal length

    Re: G1 on the road to Moab

    The kit lenses seem to lack the bite of your legacy lenses... but I could be biased... how about a challenge? post a random sample with each lens and let us guess?

    Cheers
