    Very nice... and the explanation helps.

    First pic with Super-Elmar 18mm f/3.8

    Can't get out an about today so shot this down the road. Still, this is a very sharp lens and I am really pleased with it. I think it will be fun to use, and I can't wait to get out with it.



    and in B&W.

    Those are impressively sharp. I'm certainly coveting this new lens. Can't wait to see more.

    Not sure why your pictures do not get added into a quoted response, but as you can see above, they appear as [ATTACH]number[/ATTACH].

    However, I love that last picture of the staircase. Lots of angles and curves going on in that one. Very nice.

    I love the lighting of her face from the Macbook screen.

    I made a life decision a few years ago that work wasn't worth getting ill for, so I stopped the 5am starts and home at 8pm, eating at 9-10pm and getting to bed at 1am.

    Kudos to the lady that after such a day she still looks great

    Thanks, Simon.

    I wish I could get her to slow down a little. Good news is that she plays as hard as she works, so I suppose there's a balance of sorts.

    Did you use Auto-ISO for these as well as A mode?

    Great write up on the blog, Steve, and I enjoyed the slideshow there as well. Interesting that before you mentioned the lack of keepers from the Nikon, I was thinking how much better the M8 shots where (and I shoot Nikon too, so no bias here). Very impressive.

    One more question, how did you handle white balance?

    Some interesting trivia on Seal...

    He is actually an avid Leica shooter, and collector of Leica M lenses. I've actually spoken to him on the phone about his Leica cameras and lenses, and his passion for photography.

    Great guy, and amazing performer.

    Hi Mike
    you should read Steve's blog . . . . he has been talking to Seal (and has shots from) his 21 & 24 'lux and new Nocti.

    Which is why he got the opportunity to shoot the concert.

    I'm reporting you to the RSPCA . . .that dog has clearly been hoodwinked. I'd guess someone promised her/him extra supper on the basis of co-operation in a photo session.

    I hope you came up with the goods, but that look suggests not!

    (lovely photo though.)
