From a recent trip to Rajasthan, India.

Leica M240, 50mm Zeiss C Sonnar ZM, @f2.

That's fine:)

Technical question: what's your take (if any) on the ZM Sonnar's focus shift behavior and the lens' RF calibration? My friend Bruce has one and finds focus to be spot on at f/2. I've read stuff online about it being optimized for f/2.8 by the manufacturer, yet other folks say f/2. Then there are folks who report sending their copies to Zeiss for f/1.5 optimizing.

(I picked up one of the Lomography Jupiter 3+s earlier this year, and was glad to find that it's on-the-nose wide open.)

Hi Dave, my copy - and I've tested it thoroughly on two M240 bodies - is absolutely on the nose at f/2 which suits me just fine as I find the DOF at f/1.5 is generally not quite deep enough and by f/2.8 the lens is loosing some of its character.

Thanks, Keith. As much as I like the 50mm Sonnar character at f/1.5, it can be a bit much at times…and my old LTM copy as well as the new J3+ can be tricky to focus in the f/2-4 range on M cameras.

My friend Susan *says, "Why don't you get a different one calibrated for each stop! They're tiny."

-Dave-

*Without a trace of sarcasm. None at all.  ;)

Lovely shot and colours; for some reason, the style fits right into the Greek homes look too. Guess style is what we are and can't help doing.

Really good photography.

For some reason of perspective, it makes me feel it's a wider lens than 50mm. Guess it's the hands and feet.

Rob, thanks.

The subject was so slight that her hands and feet did appear to be a little out of proportion. But nevertheless a stunning lady.

These days I'm unsure where to post images on LuLa. This thread doesn't seem to get much traffic and my own Recent Format Agnostic Personal Works thread has died a death. Perhaps the RobC Without Prejudice thread? What do you think?

It would be nice if you did use Without Prejudice, but of course, if you want to get more feedback, then posting your pix as individual ones within the general section where exists WP, will guarantee you a lot more comment.

My "problem" is that I'm somewhat averse to getting second-guessed, so I avoid that happening as much as possible, at least, regarding photographs.

Thanks again Rob.

I'm not looking for 'critique' as such but rather just sharing images, in a way saying this is my work and it is what I'm doing. The images are simply what they are.

As has been discussed in another thread, I do think that sharing images is important, fundamentally my main reason for being here is just that, to see the work of others.

I'll post to Without Prejudice.

Such beautiful colors. Is there some Leica Secret Sauce(TM) involved or are you able to get such colors with other camera/sensor brands as well?

The fact is I've only ever used one other digital camera/sensor brand which was Hasselblad and they are renowned for their colour.

Bernard, your images consistently proof that it's so much better to take pictures than it is to talk pixels...
