Thanks, as always, for your kind comments.

I too like the way the lens renders, especially colors, though some of this is the "magic" of the M8 too. Indeed, it is amazing how easy it is to hold the Ms steady - I could not have done this with any of my Nikons - they are too big and heavy to hand hold steadily.

can you tell me what a Nikon DSLR will fail to render that this camera +lens manages to render? I mean, apart from the size of the equipment and assuming you will be using a fixed focal length lens.

IMO -the scene is typical of an Indian market.

thanks

than what we see here
that Kobalux seems a fine lens, though it is hard to tell at the sizes available
I love the way it renders colors
a fascinating tour of the markets

amazing how well a rangefinder does with hand holding, in which the limit becomes more subject movement than hand shake
exotic lens for an exotic place
thanks for sharing these, RaajS
