    Apologies - this was taken using the Summarit-M 75mm f/2.5, not the 35mm.

    Simon - what a wonderful shot!

    I prefer the first as photograph. The 2nd would make a nice hall-mark card.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Out for a long time, and back with some pictures. I opt out of the upgrade for now. Very please with the M8 as it is.

    Slide show format:
    Anthony Mohamed & Jafar Barron at Skylight 307 Opening Night

    111th Annual Adult Student Members Exhibition

    Old City Cheese Shop - 14 March 2009

    Maybe in about 3 or 4 years I'll pick up an M8.2.

    Osman,

    That lens has a wonderful look to it, I think it's particularly evident in the last two images. Punchy, saturated, contrasty. I can see why you appreciate it so much. Nice post, thanks.

    Damned Daniel, I really enjoyed your shots!

    I get weary of relentless and heartless technical perfection, and long for stuff that's atmospheric like this.

    Lloyd, thank you for the encouragement. It has been only six months since I bought my M8, and now I realize that it's a totally different world. But I have to stop buying those wonderful lenses, otherwise I'm broke

    Nice selection Osman - the quality of the pictures across the frame shows well. The Elmarit 24mm is a great lens isn't it

    M8.2 w/ 24mm Elmar. The M8 is really fun to use. I have been shooting B&W but I like this one in color.

    Waiting for spring? Yeah, sure. This what it looked like outside our house at the last largish snowfall three weeks ago - the second is the back after shoveling the roofs. Less now - but still a LOT! RD1 CV21

    Lief,

    That's some serious snow. We were like that earlier this year, but it's mostly gone now. Our nearby mountains have had over 120 cm in the last four days!

    Beautiful images as well. Thanks.

    Love the second one Leif. Did you add the vignetting? It looks good on this one especially.

    Hi Steve . . . I guess I just spend a lot of time looking at skies!
    That's a lovely prickly conversion for the old barn . . . there seem to be a lot of 'em about down your way.

    Lloyd, mugging the sun was taken with my old favorite, the 75 'cron. The combination of the fine bokeh and the close focusing keeps bringing me back.

    Really nice shot. Like the colors and the expression. Messy bed just add to the atmosphere. I continue to be impressed with peoples photos which they call "just a snapshot" .

    Very, very nice, Steve. And another fine b/w conversion too.
    That really is a great little lens, isn't it? Worth much more than it's cost.

    Actually I would believe the summaron to be less contrasty than the modern day ASPH lenses in the same focal length. That is one of the reasons I love the 35pre asph, 50 pre asph (pry it from my cold dead hands) and the 85 Summarex. Not to take anything away from their aspheric counterparts but I just love the drawing of these old lenses and from F4 onward they are just razor sharp as well.

    Jaap/Steve, two excellent landscapes. Steve, that front shot of the truck is excellent in tones and textures.

    Wow, this thread is flying! Some fantastic images on this page. Jono - yet another amazing sky! Steve - I love the B&W shots of the barn and the truck. Jaap - great sunset. John - I love the "Texas Prarie Storm" shot.

    This thread is very inspiring - time to go out and shoot.

    Ditto to eerything Mike just said!

    I will also point out that this thread is reaching the magic 100 pages, so perhaps it's time to consider starting a Fun with the M8 #3?

    Awesome work all!

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Well...only one shot from today - my nephew was here and man, I had a hard time shooting him with the M8. Always on the move, except for one brief second when he stared at the lens...

    50 Lux, 1.4 - (my focus was a bit off)

    A bit of Paradise

    I recently spent a bit over a week on Kauai (westernmost of the major Hawaiian islands). This is Kalalau Lookout, 4000 feet above the ocean. The clouds were moving in and out of the valley, sometimes completely obscuring the view. And sometimes... The color and B&W/Red-filtered versions are almost completely different pictures. What do you think?

    M8, 28/3.5 VC Skopar.

    Kauai, People and Critters

    At a Kauai farmer's market, plus the island's most common wild bird (I'm not kidding). 1-4 are M8 and 35 Summicron, the last with 50 Summicron.

    A few more from Kauai

    A couple of more scenes from my recent trip. M8, first two with a 50 Summicron, the last shot, Waimea Canyon, with a 90/3.5 VC Lanthar.

    This is a beautiful portrait, Steve. I think your focus was just right... dreamlike shot. Great stuff.
