    Jim you should get a 12mm, you may really like what it does

    Went to the Hiller Air Museum today. Here are a few fun snaps...

    #1 - 50 Cron ISO 640 1/45th shutter speed

    #2 - CV 12/5.6 ISO 160 32 second exposure. This is the cockpit of a Blue Angels plane. I set the shutter on Auto, sat the camera on the seat, set the 2 second delay and pushed the shutter button. It counted down, ran for 32 seconds at F8, and here's the result

    #3 - "China Clipper" 90 F2 ISO 640 1/45th shutter speed

    #4 - 90 F2 ISO 640 1/30th shutter speed

    I love this camera!

    Nick:
    I really like the way the Nocton draws at f1.2! As for the 50 Lux shot, that is my favorite lens for low-light --- I know others prefer the Nocti, but to my eye, there's something special about the Lux you simply can't beat.

    I agree, Jack. Although the Noctilux bokeh can be good, I don't like it at all when there are points of light in the frame, which come out as circles. Here is a Summilux-50 (pre-ASPH) shot at f/1.4, on Tri-X:

    Hi Jack, I'm in Foster City, but I'm always looking for great places to shoot in the area. I'm new to the forum, fairly new to the M8, and will probably jump on one of the GetDPI Workshops in the next year or so. Can't do Moab because of my daughters wedding, but will be looking for the next one...

    BTW- I love the CV 12/5.6

    Jaap great shot. That 21mm looks nice. On the matter of the CV12mm i love this lens and actually like it much better than the 15mm CV although i never ran a side by side. i just think the 12mm is the better lens overall

    Gosh Kurt, it looks more like "puddle" Mead. The southwest drought has really taken a toll. Hopefully we will get a few years of more than normal rain and bring levels back to where they should be. I read recently that one gentleman whose name I do not recall was actually able to go into some beautiful canyons which were flooded by Lake Powell after the dam was built. He was able to walk into the canyons which is just bizarre but a testimony to the lack of water in recent years.

    Anyway, love the shot.

    Best,
    Just got in touch with Stephen Gandy to buy one of these puppies. CV does a really great job and thanks to all the postings here it is easy to make a decision to spend only $574 for such a product.

    By the way, are most of you folks using it with the standard adapter or are you using a John Milich adapter and hand coding. If the latter, what coding do you use. I would assume you have to use the 16mm or shoot with no coding and use cornerfix.

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    I use a standard adapter and no filter also BUT i do use Johns hood which is really nice . The issue here is you need to turn the coding off . If you leave it on than you will have to use corner fix to correct becuas the firmware will try to correct at it's default level

    i have found it easiest to have all my lenses coded and with IR filters...I make fewer menu setup mistakes. by the way, the 12mm hood/filter adapter can be used w/o the filter by simply screwing it's halves together.

    Nothing profound here, but it never fails to amaze me how bright the nighttime sky can be when it's snowing, and this one looked almost like a false pre-dawn to me.

    Here are a couple of shots, one from Rhodes with the M8 and Voigtlander 12mm, and the other closer to home at Antony Gormley's Another Place also with the M8 and I think the 35 summilux asph, but I could be wrong on that.

    Hey Jack, I'd love to get together for a cup of coffee sometime at Keeble & Shuchat, or somewhere else that works. I was actually in your neck of the woods last weekend. I went on a bike ride down to the Pete's in Los Altos.

    Decided to take the "scenic route" back to Santa Fe from Navajo Dam, since the snow had created near "white-out" conditions everywhere. On the road from Chama into Tesuque, the light started getting just right, the snow lifted for a bit, and even the lack of a long lens nor the +/- 17 degree weather could keep me from venturing out of the car for a bit of spectacular countryside viewing.

    That's either a very big fly or a very small church!

    Thought I'd share an image I took on Christmas Eve in old town Fort Collins Colorado. Sadly I don't know who the bronze artist was but it is pretty spectacular. I thought that with the Christmas lights this was made for black and white. M8 with the CV 35 Nokton.
