Thanks Richard - I was lucky to find the light reflecting down into the street so nicely between the buildings. It's a fairly new section of town and still pretty smart looking. And I'm still loving what I can do with those M9 raw files.

I really like this. There is a stark, graphic quality about it.
I just got a copy of this lens and I'm looking forward to trying it on my M9.

Agreed. One can sense the tension in the atmosphere.

Some shots of mine, first time shooting after a hiatus of almost a year...M9 + 35mm 1.2, iso 1600.

From the Gallery. The fill light has a shadow going too. M9 and ZM 35 C Biogon. Take it with me to work every day. Last case of the day, still toting camera, came out into the evening sunlight and saw this. The camera you have with you.....

Klaus, you're getting very good noise control at 1600. My pictures are mostly terrible at that ISO, and this fashion picture is dominated by darker tones. Do you over-expose slightly to control that?

I managed to get out and shoot with the M9 again, this time to work with a lens I've hardly used and that often gets a bad rap: the Voigtländer Ultron 28mm f/2. A set of test photos and pixel peeping showed the usual mentioned flaws (corner darkening wide open, unsharp corners until two-three stops down); happily no focus shift on this example that I could see.

However, that doesn't stop it from producing some lovely results, in my opinion:


ISO 200 @ f/3.5 @ 1/90 sec



ISO 200 @ f/2 @ 1/125 sec

The DNG files were processed in LR 4.2. No adjustments other than adding a little vignette effect and then a border treatment (with Flare). #131 was a square crop of the top 2/3 of the frame. #132 is uncropped.

Comments are always appreciated.

Hi Richard,

I tried to copy and paste the histogram for this shot but obviously this doesn't work that easy...
Try to expose "properly" i.e. as much as possible w/o blowing the highlights, digitally: too the right of the histogram.
Unless you have to rescue the exposure (i.e. you have underexposed >0.5 stops), there is relatively little noise.
If you do underexpose then noise will be pretty obvious when you try to save this with software.

Great. I'll try that, thanks. I have never used the histogram in the field but some test shots are probably the way forward.

Godfrey, Your presentation is always nice and the earlier images you posted here were really nice! I like these as well. The second one "The Look"looks hot off the file

JCrutcher, I also like the toning, that it is at 1600, taken with a favorite lens, and from the Mission District! (I lived for a time at 25th and Bryant many years back

Hello Richard,
obviously there is also the bracketing option which I completely forgot to mention. Play around with it in difficult situations ( 3 or even 5 variations of 0.5 stops) and later on evaluating the shots at home, you'll get the idea which exposure will give the best result.

Thank you Steve! This is right out of camera. I shoot both DNG and JPG and had the jpeg set for "Vintage B&W" in camera. It was shot -2/3 EV at 1/45. I downloaded it into my IPAD (which will only take the JPG's not raw) and cleaned it up with Snapspeed very slightly. I'm now home so I'll try to duplicate the look with DNG file. That's why I shoot both, these M9's do a fabulous job processing JPG's. and it gives me a guide. Thanks again!

Here's the next round of pix from the Sonnar-C 50! (I 'm loving this lens! Looks as good as my '59 Summilux, is half the weight, has a shorter focus throw and less flare!)

Looks like it came optimized for f/1.5 focus, because it's spot-on wide open.
