I used a Leica M6TTL with Portra 400 for the images I took in Israel, including this one.

So, is a lot of focus breathing normal for this lens? I really hope I did not get a bad one on ebay.

Ive had my M6 and 50 1.4 ASPH for about a month. Just got my shots back and I can say this lens is epically good.

This photo doesn't really show the capabilities of it but its the only thing I have uploaded so far.

Hi guys, I'm brand new to the forums and Leicas. Been a professional commercial fashion photographer for the last 8 years or so, started in NYC and currently run my own ad agency in Shanghai China. Been working with all digital SLRs and medium formats throughout my career, which started as a hobby and was lucky enough to turn it into a profession.

Doing all commercial work really drains you're desire to actually pick up the camera on the days off, so last year I bought a Hasselblad 500cm to spice things up to try to get me shooting for fun again. Love my 500cm but it is massive and not really a suitable travel camera, so picked up my dad's old minty fresh Canonet QL19 from 30 years ago and loved the form factor of the RFs! Recently decided to pick up a mint condition M6 titanium + Lux 1.4 asph and love the thing! It's so crisp and sharp that I feel it looks more like digital than a 20 year old film camera... much crisper than the canonet!

Anyway, here's 2 images from my first roll through my newly acquired camera. Tmax400 self developed in R09 one shot 1:50 @ 13mins and scanned with a 5d2 + 100mm macro. Hope you guys like it! The full resolution is amazing from this lens+camera, can see every single grain perfectly when scanned with the DSLR and full size is very similar to a 24mp DSLR file... kind of wished I went with the pre-asph or a summicron so it's not as sharp and look more like actual film haha. Will post more once I run some color film through the camera.

Welcome!
ty!

for the image, took a stroll through the Shanghai Zoo to test out the newly bought m6 and walked through the giraffe enclosure and saw this wonderful creative in the indoor enclosure. Almost wished I had a roll of colored film in the camera when I took the picture as everything was black and white except the giraffe and the background accent wall which was aqua. The black and white turned out well with the contrast though.

for DSLR scanning I've been experimenting with it for a while on my 500cm images. Black and white is pretty easy as you invert the image and it'll yield good results. Color was a bit challenging to get consistent results due to the different orange color cast of each film stock. I initially setup a manual profile for each film stock in capture one, and as I scanned each image it would automatically invert and profile each image to a perfect picture, took me a long time to get each profile right though...

for a simpler fool proof method, I later found this tutorial:

http://www.mfphotography.ca/michael-...digital-camera

it's a bit of a read but yields very good consistent results for colored film. If you're scanning with a 24mp dslr + 100mm macro lens, I've printed this giraffe image to a 50x30cm print from a 35mm film scan with great results. If you use 50mp 5DSR or medium format digi back to scan your film, you can print pretty big from a 35mm neg!

i use a 5dmk2 + 100mm macro with 24mm extension tube to scan 35mm film negs. have yet to try the 5dsr to scan them, but would literally double the print size i'd imagine. Much better clarity and resolution than from the best drum scanners from a lab, and with bracketing on the DSLR if need, dynamic range won't be an issue. Takes a bit of work and cloning out dust is a bit of a pain, but saves you thousands of dollars on a top notch scanner.

edit: from the tutorial, before you apply the actions, make sure you crop out the borders of the color negs before running the action. Not so much of an issue for the 35mm films for me, but for my 120 hasselblad images, I like keeping the borders, and the pure black + white borders makes for some weird color shifts when you run the actions.
