    +1 Beautiful shots guys. Hope to add some of my own when mine comes back from service.

    @Doug This kit was made for you. I haven't seen anything else out there that can do better for your kind of photos.

    Ditto.

    A R10 with AF lenses at a bit of a premium to Canon/Nikon Pro model bodies would have solved all my problems.

    Instead we get a "Sultan of Brunei" priced S2.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Just went through some pages here and the DMR images are still the best I have seen besides MF.
    Color and contrast and detail is just so rich compared to other cams.
    I think it just was such a bad bad bad idea from Leica to not develop a digital R10 but the S2 instead.
    Maybe they understand it one day - IMO every further day they waste with the S2 is lost money. Downsize the S2 as fast as possible to an R10 which takes the old Leica R lenses and then step by step offer AF lenses.

    Geronimo:

    I watched lots of Olympics on the TV, but they were on the other coast of Canada from me.

    I am on vacation in Florida for the next week or so and have the DMR with me. Working on getting David K out for a shoot while I am here.

    I got to handle the S2 at Dale Labs earlier this week. I would be happy if the R version was the same size, as it felt smaller and lighter than my DMR with a 35-70mm f2.8 on it.

    BTW, David Farcas was kind enough to lend me a M8 charger while I am here, as I forgot to bring mine. That is the type of service you get from good dealers. I haven't even bought anything from him yet!

    I also just visited David Kipper when I was in Orlando. It took about 3 hours drive to him but it was worth it to see an old friend. David is also a great fan of the DMR. Today I decided to take the DMR out for my shooting session. This is one of the image from today work .

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Son, good to see you shooting the DMR, it's still a wonderful camera especially if paired with the right lenses. This is a friend of my daughter's who I've known since she was a little girl. Not such a little girl anymore. This shot taken with the Angenieux 70-210. A little extra "glam" treatment because it was for her boyfriend

    Son:

    Was the B&W shot with the 35-70mm f2.8?

    BTW, I have my DMR here with me in Florida too. Didn't bring any big glass like your 180mm f2 though.

    Exhibition

    Hello Everyone!

    I have several of my favourite DMR images displayed as part of an exhibition entitled "Once Upon A Time in Asia" in the "Our City Otautahi Art Gallery" in Christchurch, New Zealand between March 24 and April 20 2010.

    If you happen to be in this part of the world, feel free to drop by! Everyone is welcome, and entry is free!

    This one was taken by Lake Tekapo in the early hours of one chilly morning using a 19mm Elmarit (first version).

    Best regards
    JAMES

    Robert,
    Yes you nailed it, the B&W image was shot with the Leica Vario-Elmarit-R 2.8/35-70 that I just acquired. I really enjoy using this lens and it is becoming my favorite lens to use. I may have to cut the mirror of the 5D mark II to use it with the Canon sensor. I think you have this lens with you now in FLorida. I hope your vacation is a great one with your family and many great images as well.
    Best Regards,
    Son

    Great image and post processing as well. You are getting really good at the technique. The girl is lovely too by the way.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Well, you all are making me jealous. HOWEVER, LEica NJ just called; my revamped R9 and DMR are on their way.

    I now have 6 cameras that can use R lenses:

    R9/Film
    R9/DMR
    Kodak SLR/c w adapter
    Sigma 14 w R body mount (true!)
    Truewide with R mount (for all Phase backs with Contax
    M9 (I focus with R9, then swap to M( with R>M adapter get 18MP!)
    Pentax K-7 with LEITAX adapter for lenses (CURRENTLY ON 400/6.8)

    maybe I'll start a thread
    hell, maybe I'll start a SITE!!

    BTW notice that not ONE is a Canon! (I ignore my son-inLaw's Rebel ) and of coutrse you can use ANY 4/3 camera as well.

    regards
    to all DMRer and Rer's

    They look great. The DMR excels on reds like in the bikini shot.

    BTW, did you get another 35-70mm or borrow one?

    Doug, what a series of outstanding images you've posted recently! You seem able to nail the focus perfectly even with these fleeting subjects.

    Btw. I wonder if that 280mm apo must be my next lens .

    Here's a shot with the 100mm Apo-Macro.

    Just playing around with the 180mm f3.4 APO and the DMR. I had to grab the camera when I saw the light. Bit of a power line in the lower left corner.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    well I thought I would try to revive this old thread and get some more dmr images out there. The second shot won an award in the lastest international color awards for professional, abstract. ..shot with 28mm. My son was shot with a 35mmlux. I have been using a gh1 lately trying to see how life is with an electronic viewfinder and getting my head around it.. but here I am, reminded that dmr files are a joy to work on, I will be shooting more with it.

    thanks for the comments..
    I haven't posted much but think this is the place to be if you want info on your dmr, so go ahead and post and ask questions if they come up..many of us have been around the block with the dmr.
    I have more of my personal work from the dmr posted on my website and blog.
    good luck and remember to expose to maintain highlights.. at least .5 under in exp. comp.

    Started using the R9/DMR for panos;
    mainly with 35-lux, 60-macro and 90-apo-cron.

    Stormking sculpture garden from today with the 90-cron; a double-row pano cropped.

    This guy ("BooBoo") is still a cub. Here's his mom ("Blondie"):



    R8/DMR, 180mm f/2.8 APO, shoulder stock

    I spent most of a week with thses two and was priveleged to watch BooBoo learn to catch fish. When he first caught a live fish, Blondie came over to check it out and he told her very clearly "MY fish, not sharing".

    Here they are together:

    +2. Leica sure makes some beautiful glass. I'm sure they have their own internal market research that told them they can't sell enough camera bodies in an R10 format to give a serious challenge to Canon or Nikon....

    I say if they had bothered to read threads like this one, they will have realized they actually had a captive market that while different, would have been just as lucrative for them, given their past loyal customers a road forward, and saved a whole lot of us a small fortune lost in changing over to something else.

    I shot with two DMR bodies myself for several months. Still some of my best work living down in Mexico. I'll dig around and post a couple of mine as well. The DMR was a highly under rated camera system for sure, but the R lenses will work on Canon and Nikon. All they take is a photographer that understands how to focus. Manually of course

    Doug, your work is positively masterful. Wildlife photography doesn't get any better than the work you are doing, in my opinion. I always love looking at your stuff and marvel at what you go through to capture them. Your wife must love doing the laundry around your place with all the dirt and mud from belly crawling around those swamps!

    Between my belly-crawling and her horse there's no shortage of dirty laundry at our house

    Hmm...

    One time when photographing Harriers at the open fields around Ano Nuevo, which mostly consists of being still and quiet and waiting for them to come in your field, I was accompanied by another photographer. This is waist-high coastal grass. He's wearing sneakers and shorts. I say hello, he ignores me. Okay, fine. Every five minutes or so I check my legs and and arms and brush off any ticks. He doesn't. He wanders around a LOT looking for a good vantage point. I don't. After 45min or so he leaves, I don't know whether to talk to him and strongly urge a thorough tick check and offer to check his back side. He doesn't say anything but gets in his car and drives off. Oh well I think, not my problem really. On the way home shortly after sunset I see him out in the MIDDLE of an empty parking lot (the one at the bottom of a little hill just north of Pescadero State Beach) with a ranger. His car has all four doors and the trunk wide open while he's hopping around getting undressed in the middle of the lot!!! On the ground is a flashlight. The ranger is standing watching, clearly waiting to close the lot for the night.

    I wouldn't go bare legged in that stuff. And I'd certainly never get on my belly in it!!!

    I reserve the belly-crawling for after the first few freezes have knocked the ticks down.

    Chuck, I haven't been shooting much, I am doing more ¨artesanía¨. After awhile of just watching a computer screen, I desided to try working models with my hands. A new proyect like that was too much to do it ¨halftime¨ with photography. I never bought the M9.
