    Smashing wayne.
    Have been biding on several digilux 2 on ebay but the mint condition models go for 5/600 a tad expensive for 5m old camera. waiting for a pany LC1 to come up.

    At the same time waiting to see what the DP1a turns out to be.

    This photography game sends you mad.

    The penguin shot is great. It took me a few moments to figure out what it was. The white of the chest and the background looked the same at first glance.

    can't take complete credit for the penguin shot! a photo of a screen shot - look on the left and you'll see computer symbols. it is, however, quite different than the original.

    paul, just trying to keep up my spirits as the weather changes, the temp to drop 20degreesF tonite. right now i'm sweating. tomorrow eve it's supposed to be snowing. i love summer and hate to see it end.

    derek, the sensor in this larger than most small cameras til the dp1 and four thirds. you could blow these up into billboards with modern methods of upscaling and printing. that's always been the fallacy of the megapixel race. the camera has shutter lag, something i don't miss at all, but the lens is a beautiful 2.0, so even tho the higher iso terrible, you can shoot a lot at the low. here are a couple examples from this morning, not cropped. the second two interpretations of posters i have downstairs (honesty in advertising).

    best,
    wayne

    thanks wayne.
    shutter lag doesn't bother me and your advice is again welcome. I believe that the difference between the digi 2 and LC1 is just the name/ slightly different body/software and that magic colour that comes through on the photos from the Leica that Steve Huff raves over.

    My guess the Leica is the bottom shot. DP1 the top, that's my preference.

    Derek.

    Well, Id say its the same subject, at least....

    Seriously, I feel the tighter shot (my browser show them side-by-side; Dereks seems to render differently) is the Leica one.

    I think the close-up is Sigma.
