    Faces From China

    HI There
    We just got back from China last night - there will be lots more later, but I put together an album of shots of people.

    I hope you like them

    Very nice collection, Jono.

    I will have to say (though I do not know how they would look printed) there are vestiges of banding in a few shots.

    Jono, thoroughly enjoyed your faces of China! A lovely selection and representation of the various facets of life and aspects of daily life in such a diversified country. I especially liked viewing your monochrom images shortly after the color ones and they together gave a nice balance. I'm sure stories and memories accompany many of the images. A nice end to my eveing

    HI Tom
    Thanks for that - good to know what people like. I think I agree.
    I've been trying to think of something to say on your GAS thread, but the only suggestion I can make is that you buy my secondhand 24 'lux

    I've just fought off a real temptation to get a D800E, I'm just going to stick with my Leica and the OMD - they compliment each other nicely, and the OMD will be good with our new puppy (we're collecting her tomorrow).

    all the best

    Re: Faces From China

    New puppy. Now that's a commitment. We just brought home a little dog after being without for about 3 years; we'd forgotten what it is. A while back a friend who knew I had a couple of terriers told me, "I just got a dog. Now I get it!" I realized that since I'd been without one for a while I no longer got it.

    But back to the topic. First off, thanks for those photos Jono, as always! Out of curiosity, did you tend to use the optical rangefinder or EVF or LV?

    Ah yes - we haven't forgotten - Caspar is only just three, but he seems to need a friend!

    Almost exclusively rangefinder (a decision after spending so much of the last few months working with Live view).

    Jono,

    Welcome back and thanks for posting the photos. My favourites have to be 21 - very well seen, and 53 - great use of light.

    Enjoy the new puppy - what breed?

    Hi Jono, welcome back and I hope you're well.

    I put a deposit down on the new M today. I'm no. 3 I think on the list but I'm in no hurry...have the M9 to sell first.

    So tell us....now that you have a few months of the M under your belt, what do you really think of it?

    All the best..

    Mike

    I've just fought the same battle and, like yourself, decided to stay with the small sized and light OMD, with my M9.

    As for the new puppy, we at wuffstuff.com are looking forward to some additional business, and plenty of photographs. Dogs and photography are made for each other.

    Congrats to resist the DSLR.
    One 24Lux is enough
    But is one of the lenses I don't really use much. Seems if I want go wide I like 21mm.
    Looking forward to some puppy images!

    HI There
    I hope you're well - glad you liked 21 - as you can imagine, it was as much luk as anything - I thought it was funny anyway

    The dog is another Pyrenean sheepdog - she's a darling (eight weeks yesterday), two nights in with no crying as well, she seems to be rather calm and sussed out.

    all the best

    Hi There Mike
    Congratulations! Incidentally, all those deer shots which aren't cropped . . . how do you get so close? are you really a tree? I can't get within 100 metres of the ones around us!

    The M? well, I still think of it as two cameras:
    A capable and useful (although not perfect) full frame mirrorless camera on the one hand. Quite suitable for a leisurely pace of work with landscape/nature/macro.
    On the other hand a rangefinder camera which really is as near to perfect as you can get - sure, it'd be nice if it was M6 sized, but that really is my only gripe. I like it better the more I use it, it seems to answer all the questions the M9 raised.

    All the best

    Hi Bart
    I'm really sorry - it's not a teaser - it's a cockup! Of course, there will be more shots, but probably not until the weekend now.

    Yes, I'm certainly sighing a sigh of relief that I didn't succumb.

    They certainly are made for each other. There are a couple of snaps on the fun with the OMD thread.

    I guess this one might be considered as an 'unboxing' photograph - I've only taken a couple with the M, but there will be more (oh yes!).
