    Where have you seen an N. soletus pictured? I did some Googling, came up with a very exhaustive study of daffodil morphology, using ultrametric Bayesian statistics (you may laugh, but this is really something I am familiar with in a quite different field of physical science) to analyze 42 of the supposed 60-80 species found around the Mediterranean. One leaf of the resulting tree was N. Obsoletus, but no Soletus.

    Re: Fun with the Leica SL (digital) as an aps-C camera

    I'm trying to zero in on correct exposure for a light show that uses all the strands of our Calatrava "harp bridge," using the CL 11-23 on my SL because my objective is to capture the show in a short video. Not quite there yet, but it is quite a show.

    I get a better color rendering at the moment (for this peculiar camera/lens/lights combo) with AccuRaw (the examples above) than with Capture One. I've submitted a bug report to see what is happening.

    As usual, I can't remember where I found the info, though I certainly found it somewhere: and a Google search doesn't bring up any obvious answer now. There is at least one site in Spanish that refers to it. I'm beginning to think that N soletus and obsoletus are the same plant. There are even sub-varieties of obsoletus to confuse me even further.

    OK, got my second picture to print properly with my usual set of tools. Sorry about the missing version in the earlier post.

    Sometimes you're just sitting on the living room sofa, drinking coffee, reading getDPI, and you notice some orchids on a nearby table, and you just happen to have an SL with 90-280 sitting next to you.... BTW, the orchids are a VERY deep purple/magenta, so it was easy to do a high-key treatment, as everything else naturally went white.

    Re: Fun with the Leica SL (digital)



    I bought a CL in order to act as a TC for my 90-280 yesterday. This image was shot through a dirty window(it has been raining and very windy down here in Sydney) you can see the wind ruffling the baby feathers on a baby Cockatoo and his mate who decided to perch on our balcony and stare at our cat who was making her usual hunting noises insisting I let her out to shoo these pesky intruders away - very funny. Twilight and shade and unfamiliarity with the 'teleconvertor' and couldn't be bothered doing to much post processing to try and make up for many technical flaws in shot. Still I think the 'effective' focal length increase to 420MM will give some extra reach and more use out of this fantastic lens.

    Cheers
    Pete

    Hi Jurgen

    the font name is 'Marydale' - there are other similar fonts to this like comic sans/chalkboard/papyrus - it may be an Adobe font from Adobe font pack if I recall correctly.

    90AA wide open even with zoom and focus peaking is pretty tricky...

    There's a similar 'harp' bridge in Dublin, named after Samuel Beckett. Santiago Calatrava was also the architect.

    It was also turned into a playable instrument:

    Marc:

    I am quite happy with the S lenses. I have used the 35, 70, and 120. The autofocus is slower with the S lenses than with the SL lenses, but I am able to achieve better focus using the toggle, can take advantage in bright sun of the ISO of 50. Additionally, it 'changes' the lenses to their true 35, 70, and 120 focal lengths (as compared to when used on the S007), so one picks up 3 exceptional primes for the SL.

    The SL is a bit more nimble, size-wise, than the S, as well.

    I would add that the images are beautiful, the colors are great, but they do not have the same feel as images from the SL lenses. A different but beautiful character to the images. Perhaps not so biting in contrast as the SL? Hopefully looking at the examples I have posted will give you an idea. Not "better" not "worse" but very natural and smooth (whatever that means!) Very nice bokeh, too.

    Here's one with the SL and S 120.

    The adapter is a bit pricey, but pre-owned S lenses can be found at some exceptional prices. The lenses are big, more in line with the SL 24-90, but, again, what they add to the SL 601 for their prices is well worth it, IMO.

    Regards,
    Rob
