    There are been some wonderful photos this week. I'm catching up as I was in Las Vegas attending the NAB tradeshow.

    Here's a shot from the flight back using the new 18mm super-elmar.

    Two shots from the Adventuredome at Circus Circus in Las Vegas. Both were shot with the 18mm super-elmar.

    Great shots arrive here daily it seems. Here is one from me from today...

    Got this shot today of an old Funeral Home that closed down a couple of years ago. It was about 7 in the evening and the light looked kind of spooky so I snapped. After a B&W conversion and some PS work this is what I ended up with. The original out of camera shot was pretty contrasty already.

    The locals say its haunted.

    Thanks, Lloyd and Terry. I jumped the gun and pulled the camera out before the flight attendant announced it was OK to use electronic devices. I figured if I was spotted they might assume the M8 was a film camera.

    Here's another shot related to a vehicle in motion. I could hear and feel the roller coaster as it approached behind me. The continuous mode was a big help. Shot with the 18mm at 1/20 of a second. The camera was positioned on a fence post.

    Another winner David. Leica should send you a bonus for all the 18mm lenses you're going to sell for them.

    Here's another plane view that was shot just a few seconds before the other one. Landscape perspective this time, rather than portrait. I tried to match the processing so they could work as a pair.

    I noticed when we were taking off that the window has very few scratches.

    On the trip to see my parents this weekend I only took the Super-Elmar 18mm f/3.8 so I used that to take my usual few pictures of my parents. Sadly my mother's dementia is much worse and my 97 year-old father is quite frail (albeit mentally all there) so I always try to get a few pictures each weekend when I visit.

    Those are wonderful images, Simon, as is the entire series of your parents. You're fortunate to have a chance to photograph them so late in their lives with a top-notch camera and lenses.

    The 18mm works especially well here with none of the distorted perspective you might expect from a wide-angle lens. I also like that the images skew more toward the light- than the dark-end of the b&w spectrum.

    I like the color treatment, as well as the interplay between the lines in the windows, bricks, and building versus the lines in the flags. Everything balances with a pleasing geometry.

    The bottom flag has 13 alternating stripes, just like the U.S. flag. Does it have any historical significance?

    Simon, those photographs are so moving... I guess this is what photography is all about. Thank you for sharing them with us.

    More fun with Leica's new 18mm lens.

    These are from the Fashion Show shopping mall in Las Vegas. I left the 18mm lens on the camera during the entire trip, as I wanted to learn its strengths and weaknesses. The only drawback -- if you could call it that -- was the maximum 3.8 aperture. On the other hand, the lens is tack-sharp even wide open.

    Simon,

    These are simply wonderful images, and more than that, they are important images. I'm more and more convinced that the most important images I make are of my own family. Preserving the memories, of all phases of life, significantly surpasses any "art" I might create. You've done that here. My congratulations.

    Here are some recent images from Joshua Treen National Park. All three are with the M8 camera and 28mm lens. I have to make a digital negative and then I can make the platinum/palladium prints.

    Thanks Lloyd, much appreciated comments. I hope that my family will feel I have done them proud in the way I have collected photographic memories of them for future generations.

    I like the gritty look to these. The 18mm is definitely a very versatile lens and, as you say, it is sharp from the widest aperture. The only thing I am still struggling with is that the lens has such a wide field of view that metering for the intended focus point of a picture can sometimes be a challenge.

    The gritty look seemed to suit this odd, brightly lit shopping mall. The 18mm provides so much detail, when you ramp up the contrast (or structure in Silver Efex Pro), the effect can be stunning.

    With the focus, I ended up using the distance markings on the lens most of the time when shooting from more than about 15 feet. It was quicker and seemed accurate given the wide DOF (I'm still getting the hang of rangefinder focusing).

    Here's another one with the same mom and her three kids.

    Just to try out the UV/IR cut filter. The fabrics as the velvet black background came out perfect.

    i'm in a bit of a quandary as the 75 Lux is turning out to be my favourite on the M8 (followed closely by the Nocti).... i knew it was a step above my other lenses, but on the M8 it's shockingly so. trying to figure what my walk-about lens will be -- 28 Cron or 35 Lux ASPH (even though i stupidly keep looking for a user Aspherical because i prefer its older draw). when i read Sean Reid's review on the 24 Lux, i had to shut my computer

    Re: The All New More and More Fun w/M8 Images

    Nice shot Cam!

    I understand your love of the 75L. I find that even though I carry what few lenses I have with me, I rarely change lenses while shooting. I suppose I would if someone were paying me. But I'm perfectly content to just see whatever I should see depending on what lens is mounted. So it's not uncommon for me to just walk around all day with the 75 in place (for example) and never switch it. I'm beginning to wonder why I even bother to carry the other ones around with me. Guess I figure it makes me look cooler. No easy feat.

    I felt the same about Sean's review, and about the 18/3.8 with all the amazing images posted here recently. I tend to shoot what ever's on the M8 at the time, but when I think about it, my default seems to be the 28 Cron.

    Now, let's see more of your work with that 75 lux!

    Re: The All New More and More Fun w/M8 Images

    LOL, HS, i am the same way. the only time i change lenses, really, is if i'm going from day to night -- in which case the Nocti is always in my bag. otherwise, i prefer to stick to one focal length per outing. i've been a little distressed that the 75 Lux is starting to feel not quite so large and heavy -- a testament to my lugging it around.... even at f/8 on the street, the draw is breath-taking!

    Lloyd, GAS never ends, does it? i got another lecture about f/1.4 lenses should only be for people who use and need f/1.4. this from somebody who was pushing me to sell my Nocti so i could afford the M8.2 rather than a used M8. he then (as have others) actually admitted that he liked one of my Nocti shots and that i seem to use it properly -- low light....

    for instance, out with a friend walking along the Seine with our M8's, he had to stop taking pics with the Nokton 35/1.2 whilst i kept on shooting. he laughed endlessly when i struggled to focus on some cyclists coming by, clowning for me, at a great pace in absolutely no light. guess what? i actually got focus on the lead guys peace sign! unfortunately, the image was somewhat marred by the metering on the cam that under-exposed the image by more than 3 stops because it was fooled by the lights of oncoming cars in the background.

    (eta: the above shot was taken whilst i was connected to electricity at rehab, so shutter shake was all mine it's a slight crop, because i loved the lines -- the most perfect focus being on the cutting floor.)

    Re: The All New More and More Fun w/M8 Images

    Cam -- the 75/1.4 is probably the most beautiful lens Leica has ever designed -- it is really versatile and the pictures are just beautiful. There is definitely a sweet spot from f/2.5-4 (for a mix of sharpness and bokeh at least), and when shot at 1.4 it has the lovely glowy-ness to the highlights. That said, I find it a bit long on the M8...did you prefer 90mm lenses on film? As far as I am concerned there is only one other lens (the Zeiss 110mm f/2 Planar for 6x6) that can give you that same perfect combination of subject isolation and creamy background -- a Goldilocks lens -- everything is just right.

    The 75/1.4 just has a gorgeous look on black and white film...here are a few of my older ones...if you'll forgive the non-M8 shots...






    Yeah, and color too...

    Re: The All New More and More Fun w/M8 Images

    ah, Stuart! your shots are some of the ones that led me to hold out for the Lux rather than getting the much lighter Cron....

    it is, to be honest, too long on the M8 as a walk-around lens. it's absolutely brilliant for sitting at the cafÚs, though -- both inside and out. i've just been walking around with it because i'm smitten with the look

    i do that with any new lens -- use only it whilst learning it so i have some chance in hell of being able to focus it correctly when i'm in a low light situation where i really need it. i did the same with my Nocti and it has paid off as both are bears to focus quickly. (thank you for the tip on apertures to play with)

    have you found any wider lens that have some of its magic?
