    These guys were huge and I had to wait a little, but finally mother nature rewarded me with the industrial smile I was after... Decided to leave the image characteristic merely untouched while processing.

    Thanks, Steve. Yes, the Sonnar is definitely a keeper. If I had to keep only two lenses it would be the Sonnar and probably the 35mm Biogon. Hmm, I need an M9 so that I could truly live with two lenses (I have an M2 and an M8). I may have to do some calculating :-).


    ........ After calculations --- hmm, no, still can't get there from here.

    A last one because I have to go get back to work: testing the OOF/Bokeh of my new Zeiss. As smooth as I had hoped for. Dont like the blown out white spot, but that's my own fault ;-)

    Matt this was the first time I have seen a homeless child here in Hawaii ... Homelessness is out of control over here ... thanks for your comments . The Tattoo parlor image is amazing .....
    Shiro: Nicely seen and proportioned image. The expanse of paving makes you look "harder" at the mid-ground and background. Homelessness appears to be almost everywhere these days. Thank you for your kind comment on my Tattoo Parlor image.

    Lloyd: Nicely captured. The rhythm and perspective of the wheels and shadows is very cool. I, also, like the framing and light in the first photo and the way the eye is pushed off the barn's facade to the distant mountains. The darkness of the third photo conceals the detail and focuses on the silhouetted landscape, then the sky and reflections. Works very well, IMHO.

    Woody: Great quality to this image. I've been looking around for this lens. They seem pretty rare. In another post, you indicated that you might have to "file' something down to get it to work on the M9. Is that what you did?

    Cheers, Matt

    Matt - The dual range summicron is very common - it was the lens for the M cameras in the 50s and 60s. I owned one back in the day when I was shooting an M3. The close focus cam interferes with the M9 so it doesn't mount on the M9 unless it is in close focus mode. I bought the lens on ebay and sent it for a CLA and to have the close focus cam removed (this was not an expensive proposition). As a result it now mounts on the M9 (and my M8.2), but it's lost its close focus ability. If you can buy one without the close up spectacles do so - the lens without spectacles sells for a lot less because it is of no interest to collectors.

    The dual range is optically identical to the "rigid" summicron (named to distinguish it from the slightly earlier collapsable summicron) but there is a persistent rumor that the DRs were produced to tighter specifications. The glass is only single (not multi) coated so it's more prone to flare than its modern counterparts. The later ones may have better coating. Mine is early - from 1954. In terms of build quality it's from another world. It's compact (about the same as the modern 50 lux) but heavy in its solid brass mount. Otherwise its close to the modern lenses in performance but has a unique look that defined the 50s and 60s era. As you can see I use it a lot.

    Thanks for your comments on the deer images. Here are a few more images from the same session, with 35mm Ultron:

    Mike: Rich color and excellent composition from the country. I like the abstract (and slightly funny) quality of this one. Will they keep increasing the enclosure as the tree grows to keep it from being eaten?

    With that guy in the window, you'd have to be crazy to stop... anytime!
