    Kimmeridge Bay, Dorset

    Sunset over the ledges and tower at Kimmeridge Bay, in Dorset (UK). Kimmeridge Bay is a place rich of photographic opportunities, both for the wide vistas and for detail work (coming soon).

    'Sunrise At Acadia's Pebble Beach'....
    What can I say... but f8 and be there just rings so true for me and our recent Acadia NP visit. Many experiences that were just so memorable that can't ever be matched. You had to be there!
    The sun rising, the waves breaking on the rocks......but those rocks. Ah, yes those rocks affectionately known as 'pebbles' at Acadia. They're far from pebbles but when you match them to the grandeur of this National Park they do become 'pebbles' in a sense. And of course the sunlight on the wave and on the rocks. This is one of my personal favorite images from all of 2017.

    Leica SL, 18mm Super-Elmar lens at f11, 1/5 sec at ISO 50.

    'Early Morning At Otter Cliff'....
    Oh boy. Get up at 3am and drive to this location? Well worth it as the conditions were just ideal for photography and simply just enjoying the view!
    It's great having a National Park like Acadia right here in New England.

    Durdle Door, a Dorset's classic

    Probably the most famous landmark on Dorset's Coast, Durdle Door is definitely impressive and a real sight to behold. Here I shot it at sunset, but it's beautiful at sunrise as well.

    Re: Fun with the Leica SL (digital)

    My daughter and I drove 5+ hours to the Rock Creek Lake area in the Eastern Sierras to hike the Little Lake Valley Trail. This is the 3rd lake after a 2 mile hike. All 3 photos taken with Leica SL + Zeiss ZM 35 1.4



    Drove another 40 miles north to Mono Lake. The storm clouds were fast approaching.



    On our way home, clouds started to show some sign of color. Pulled over by Fossil Falls for this shot.

    I have not been very active in this group so I thought I would post some images taken with my SL, 24-90, 80-200/4 R and my rented 90-280/2.8-4 lens..

    Leica SL + Macro-Elmarit-R 60mm f/2.8
    ISO 400 @ f/6.8 @ 1/60

    Not the sharpest macro I've ever shot ... seem to have missed the front plane of the timing cover by a little bit ... but I like the feel of it anyway. It'll make a nice small print.

    Re: Fun with the Leica SL (digital)

    If this is old news, my apologies, but I just noticed the SL price dropped a whopping €1000 from previously €6900 to €5900 (Meister Camera Germany) ...
    Is there a new model coming or what ?

    Leica realigned pricing on the SL body so that it would be more consistent world-wide and also so that it would be more accessible (pricing more in line with top-end Nikon and Canon bodies). It's a sensible response to the marketplace feedback—that while Leica lenses are assumed to be substantially more expensive due to their quality and performance, bodies are commodities and shouldn't be. It increases the potential audience for the SL system.

    No hints of an updated SL model have surfaced. The SL firmware is still in very active development, having just finished the firmware version 3 release (with a large list of new features and improvements), and the next release already has three or four specific things that Leica engineering has stated they are working on in response to the existing owner and beta tester comments. That's a good indicator that the SL is nowhere near the end of its product cycle yet.

    Re: Fun with the Leica SL (digital)

    I talked to the Leica dealers in Austria and they all stated there is no new model on the immediate horizon.

    While I do not doubt that I am pretty sure there will be an updated model within the next 12-18 months (number of AF points, maybe adding phase detect, increased video capabilities like no crop and more options for 4k).

    I applaude Leica for recognising they have to lower prices and they need to constantly update existing products vi FW - something that Fuji and Olympus are doing meanwhile as standard.

    I still did not jump in that train as I am so happy with my Fuji and Olympus systems that it came pretty difficult to win me over again. This is a clear example how they managed to loose very potential customers some years ago. But never say never again

    That's not your average sloop. Can you identify the four-master and the hotel complex for those of us who haven't been to Bar Harbor in the last few years?

    Hi Scott. That's the Bar Harbor Inn and the schooner is the Margaret Todd. The hotel is a top shelf place to stay right on the harbor while the schooner provides some nice cruises in the area (known for its sunset cruises)!

    Re: Fun with the Leica SL (digital)

    The SL can be used with TL lenses, which only cover the APS-C portion of the frame, but are nice and small. You might wonder why I would give up a little over half of the pixels, or go to a resolution reduced by 1.5. Well, 4K video in the SL uses only that portion of the frame. To see how big a 10 MPx APS-C image from the SL can be enlarged and still look close to the quality of the 24 MPX full frame, I shot this scene with a 28/2.8-asph at f/5.6 on my M10, and cropped out a portion (2100x1000 pixels) in the center of the frame at 100% resolution:

    L8001799 1 by scott kirkpatrick, on Flickr

    now compare it with the same portion of the scene shot with a Vario-Elmar-SL 11-23, at 19 mm, f/5.6, with less than half the pixels (1450x650) behind the same portion of the cityscape.

    S1010007 by scott kirkpatrick, on Flickr

    Uncropped, these pictures would print three times wider. You can click through to flickr to see the extra information in the first (M10) frame.

    Re: More on T lenses with the Leica SL

    I'm now exploring the APO Vario-Elmar 55-135 T lens. It's really sharp, has reasonable but not exceptional AF performance, and is available at low prices new or in mint condition used. (I've got mine brought up to the latest T firmware level, 1.61. Others have had some problems with it, using copies at unknown firmware levels that "just work.") Here are some stills, just 10K pixels, but fine for Flickr viewing:

    and a "brick wall shot" as a sharpness test:

    Seems a new model is coming. Would also clarify why they reduced the list price of the current SL substantially some months ago.

    The first comment on that post is from a very surprised Steffen Skoop, the Leica SL-System Product Manager. The Leica Rumors post is news to him.

    "Expired", a camera??? Do they mean "discontinued" or "out of stock"? Could be a translation thing...

    Glencoe's "Three Sisters" are a majestic series of three peaks on the south side of the Glen. You can see two of them in this photo.

    This is a wonderful photograph. Is it cropped? What are these Firecrest filters?

    Thank you very much, I am glad you enjoyed it. Yes, I cropped it from the native 3:2 ratio to 4:3, which I much prefer most of the times for vertical landscapes. Firecrest filters are the top of the line Formatt-Hitech filters, and are in my opinion the best on the market, most transparent and most neutral. You can see my compared test here:

    Re: Preparing to test APO-Macro-120 S on my SL

    I recently ordered a deeply discounted, used 120 S Macro available at a price that I could afford even when the cost of the SL-adapter S is added in. The MTF specs on that lens, especially considering that I will use only the center portion, are incredible, and the few reviews I could find support that assessment. But I couldn't help wondering if the difference between this new super-lens and my best existing lenses, an APO-Macro-Elmarit-R 100/2.8 and the Zeiss APO-Makro-Planar T* 120/4, both of which had excellent reputations in their respective eras, will be apparent. So today I got the Zeiss 120 and the Hasselblad 500 C/M that it lives on off their shelf, attached a PhaseOne digital back and gave them some work to do. The back has a CCD 33x44 mm chip with the same pixel pitch as the SL (if you scale its 39 MPx down to the chip size of the SL, you would have 24 MPx), so here's a picture that I put up for future comparison with other lenses.

    And for fun, here's a shot of the current state of progress on our 20-minutes-to-the-airport fast train. It still has about 6 km, one more bridge and one more tunnel to go before they can drive in a golden spike and open the service, but only the rails remain to be put in.

    The last shot was 1 [email protected]/11. It was dark in there.

    Blue hour at Mesquite Dunes

    Beautiful Mesquite Dunes, in Death Valley (USA), are always a great source of inspiration for me and lend themselves to long exposure abstract images perfectly.

    Vieri your images are always inspiring to me. Also that 15mm seems like a good match with the SL!

    Thanks

    Hi Dave,

    thank you very much for your message, much appreciated - I am glad that my work inspires you! About the 15mm, I love that little lens, it works fantastically well with the SL and once I removed its (nonsensical) lens hood it works perfectly well with filters as well I really enjoy the different "look on the world" that its focal length affords, and it fast became one of my most used lenses.

    Best regards,

    Vieri

    P.S. For lens hood removal, see: https://vieribottazzini.com/2016/08/...-15mm-iii.html or, if you don't want to mess with something like this, there are adapters made by Vietnamese maker Bombo which work reasonably well (you can find them on Amazon US).

    Re: Fun with the Leica SL (digital)

    I don't normally do portraits — I guess it shows here — but my daughter needed a passport-size photo for some work-related benefit card. A very quick snap, 24-90 lens at 84mm, f/11, 1/125, LR adjustments for uneven lighting, cropped

    Mark Mann shoots yours truly. It's a Leica T 11-23 lens on the SL, so "only" 11MP. (I remember the original Canon 1Ds).
