Hi Dave, thanks a lot. Jon is rad.

Thanks Erik, you rule.

DMA1965, thanks a lot for posting, I am planning on visiting Tokyo at some point this year. and would love to visit that market.

Siem Reap, Cambodia. Early morning photo walk. Some young novices collecting their daily alms from the locals. This land mine victim was selling an awesome selection of pirated (photo copied ) books about Cambodia.



Siem Reap, Cambodia



Hanoi, Vietnam. Trying to search for photos in a crowded market.


cheers, michael

thanks a lot Shab, I appreciate that.

Here are a couple of more from a recent trip to Yangon

Yangon, Myanmar..... Traffic has really gotten bad in the last couple of years with the influx of imported cars.


Yangon, Myanmar...... Waking up early and watching the city "wake up" is one of my favorite things to do.


Yangon, Myanmar.... Shwedagon Pagoda is still one of my favorite places in the world to take photos.


cheers, michael

It just occurred to me: A Distagon is a retrofocus lens, with extra back-focus distance to clear an SLR mirror. But since the Distagon ZM is for a Leica M, and there is no mirror, why does it need to be a Distagon, and not a Biogon? Any 35mm lens has a long enough back focus to leave room for metering, so that can't be it.

I assume they did it like that to make sure it's more easily compatible with digital sensors. (I.e. no colour shifts and blurring in the corners of the frame).

The ZM Zeiss Distagon 35/1.4 wouldnt clear the mirror in an SLR as it has a very different optical formula from the SLR Mount Zeiss Distagon 35/1.4. The SLR mount lens is twice the weight and size. My guess is that Zeiss/Cosina threw all the optical tricks in the book at this lens for optimum performance on digital M-mount bodies and that resulted in the lens being a Distagon for the reasons given above. They succeeded as imo its a better lens than the current Summilux 35/1.4 ASPH.

Above all Biogon type is not suitable for f/1.4
