    My second year going to the Renaissance Fair - the jousting is my favorite thing. So I brought some more "serious" gear this time.

    Okay. But you gotta admit, all but the most extreme lenses and films look the same when they are a postage stamp in size. 640x400 image is a different size on different resolution monitors. 4x6 inches is the same size for everybody holding a print in their hand.

    Nice Bryan. That brings it in.

    My Nokton 50/1.5 on an M9 at f2.8. This was indeed the end of the road for this old dog. I might have missed focus on the face of the dog. But now the camera has a serious back focus issue with this lens. And to a lesser degree with my 35mm and not as noticeable when using a 25mm. I think the camera might of got banged around too much on some of my hiking trips with it.

    Thanks tuco. I like the photo of your dog. I don't have many good photos of my first and only dog unfortunately, but maybe I'll dig one up.

    My Leica M9 also had focus issues after a bit of use. After getting the sensor replaced last year and not really using it much I finally just got rid of it when I was offered a sweet trade+cash deal for it.

    Thanks. I got a DR on my first M a very long time ago. That M3 is long gone, but I still have the DR. I never had a complaint about it, and took a picture with it on a newspaper job that my friends and I jokingly called "the sharpest picture ever taken on 35mm". I thought maybe it was one of my pitifully few Flickr uploads, but don't see it. Maybe I'll upload it just for fun.

    I got a 80's 6 element on a camera I was buying and liked it just enough better that I stuck with it. I know that lens gets some blowback; even Mike Johnston gives it grief. I feel guilty enough to compare them every few years, but always decide they are both great. Have you ever used the later lens? A friend has the first 6 element version, and I suspect we would be the absolute happiest if we switched, since I'm more of a boke nut and he is more resolution obsessed. I just don't really think there are any bad Summicrons.

    I do like the Summicron DR. I've seen Canon rangefinder lenses are almost as sharp as anything, and use them mostly (8 or 10 Canon LTM lenses). Here is a good example of what the Summicron is capable of, on Ilford Delta 100. I'm just starting to use the Nokton, I got the adapter a week or two ago. Click for larger, I'm seeing this forum reduces sizes even if you post them big:

    Very strong composition, Ken, with your lyrical eye -- even though I continue like the tonalities in your LF (film) work better.

    This is what passes for "street photography" in my very urban neighborhood:
