    The kicker is that the pilot "claimed" to have made it from Jacksonville, FL to the Cape in under 15 minutes.

    After seeing her in action, I believe him.

    The Autumn leaves are just at their best - but it won't be for long, the wind's getting up and soon they'll be gone.

    Soon, it will be winter ... already a few flurries in Wisconsin today. This is from last winter. I found it while I was digging for a few other shots. It reminds me how much I miss my M8.

    Kurt

    there are lots of good buys out there on old M8's You should be able to get a really good conditioned one for under $3K and then spend another $2K for full upgrades including vulcanite. So you end up with a newly conditioned M8 with a new one year warranty for only $500 more than the original price of an M8 and in like new condition. I did this and now I have two of the upgraded ones. Given that the M8.2 goes for $6300 you should have no problems getting rid of them if you choose.

    Hope you didn't sell all your lenses!!

    Jono, absolutely stunning shots. Clearly, you are a master of that lens.... The Flowering Cherry Leaves is my favorite of a fabulous group. You leave me to wonder though why you chose the 75 'Cron over the 75 'Lux, my personal favorite in that focal length?

    Hi Chuck
    Glad you liked the shots.
    The answer to your question is variable!
    It could be that I don't know . . . never having used the 'lux. The reason I went for the 'cron is that I don't really like using the M8 with big lenses on it (if I'm not worried about the size/weight I can carry a lot more resolution and flexibility with me).

    I really like the 'cron though - I like the bokeh, and I like the biting sharpness where it's in focus.

    Each to his own I guess!

    Jono, you have posted some very good shots with your Nikon gear but I have to say that your M shots always grab me much more. I think the M is very well suited to your aesthetic sensibility (although you have posted many stunning shots with both systems).

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    There is a very different look between the 75 'Cron and the 75 'Lux. I really do like having the extra stop of speed, the extra shallow DoF shot close in, and frankly I don't think the 'Lux gives up much in the way of sharpness. But you're right Jono, you do pay a price in size and weight. Horses for Courses.

    This is the 75 'Lux, doing what it does best....

    More fun with the 75 Lux...

    Took a few walks through my neighborhood over the past few days with the 75 lux, and took these shots wide-open, except the "four trees", which I think was shot at f2.8.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Charles and Helen and John and Brian - thanks for the kind words.

    Chuck - lovely cat shot, and Mike, I understand the attractions of the 'lux . . but I'm rather enamoured of the new lenses (terrible to say).

    Today I went out with the WATE, and with the 35 'cron.

    Here are the results:

    I've also been fiddling about with my black and white technique, and also dragging out the WATE (first 3), and my old 35 'cron (last two).











    my it was windy!

    Mike - I really like the space in the 4 trees image and how you composed the trees in the frame and their relation to one another. The last image has some qualities that I like to see in prints in some of the oof areas, very nice.

    an impromptu celebration dinner at susanna foo after learning that i've sold two small paintings at a group show. we ordered this wine for it's name, but it turned out to be delicious. the wine maker's comment on "the ball buster" on the back label was quite funny.

    Thanks Jono and Helen! I have to say, this thread has included some great inspiration for me. I sometimes miss the opportunity to comment on someone's posted shot, but they are all terrific and keep me inspired to shoot more.

    Have you ordered yours yet? (I'm not going to buy one . . . . I'm not going to buy one . . . . I'm not going to buy one . . . . I'm not going to buy one!)

    repeat that mantra often enough and you'll end up buying one ...
    Here's how it works

    I'm not going to buy one . . . . I'm not going to buy one . . . . I'm not going to buy one . . . . I'm going to buy one . . . . I'm going to buy one . . . .

    See ?

    Today I went out with the WATE, and with the 35 'cron.

    Here are the results:

    I've also been fiddling about with my black and white technique, and also dragging out the WATE (first 3), and my old 35 'cron (last two).











    my it was windy!
    These are amazing Jono! Wonderful B&W photographs.

    Oh! Wouter
    Thank you - I'm embarrassed, from the master himself!

    I didn't know you hung about in this neck of the woods.
    My GX100 is ALWAYS in my bag . . . but it doesn't come out as often as it should.

    As far as B&W is concerned, I have a lot to learn, but I'm beginning to realise that it suits my rather single minded vision rather well.

    Thank you again - I'm really flattered
