    Thanks Maggie! It is a fun place. Now if I could just get rid of the extra 10 lbs. I picked up while there.

    I think he used a pencil sharpener. It is now dead on! No more focus and guess.
    Seriously, Maggie, I sent him my Noctilux and 75 lux which both had focus issues. I couldn't be happier with the Noctilux. The 75 lux is not back yet...he is sending the flange to JM for coding.

    Oh, OK! I'm a bit slow sometimes.

    The results speak for themselves- that's a gorgeous photo and the DOF and focus are PERFECT!

    Wow Cindy!
    I do have a question as her arm looks to me to be on the same or very close to the plane her eyes are on yet it is out of focus. Was the camera slightly tilted. Nothing against the picture I love it just curious about the effect.

    Cindy, what aperture did you shoot the portrait at? It looks too sharp to be f1 at that distance.

    Rob,
    F1, but I cropped it a little bit to get a little tighter framing.

    Terry,
    She is leaning toward me. I think the camera was straight. I just go for focusing on the eye highlights. The DOF is very narrow, you can see that her lips are already oof. That is why I had to get the lens calibrated by DAG. When I got it new in November, it was off a tiny bit and I had to focus and then turn a little more to the right. It was a guess and not accurate enough for narrow DOF shots.

    My newly acquired 50mm summicron is still at DAG since Feb 29. I can't wait to get it back. So excited.

    Bob,
    This copy of the lens was not that nice. Don Goldberg worked the magic...all for $100 + shipping. If you have any lenses that are not working up to their potential, I think a trip to DAG is in order.

    IMO DAG is the pre-eminent Leica repair smith. If you have a lens that needs calibration, he is THE person to send it to. He is back-logged by a few months, but the result is worth the wait...

    I have an M2 that needs CLA to join its siblings and take advantage of newer lenses than it ever dreamed of. Who would you recommend, who is NOT backlogged by several months?

    Oh! Now I'm really confused . . . surely if that was me with the camera . . .then I'd have taken the other side of her face? Mirror? No, it's much too confusing for this time of night. Rest assured, that's Tim with the other camera, not me . . . .I guess I should be flattered though as he's about 30 years younger than me!
