Hamilton in Colour: T (typ 701), 28mm Summicron

I took Kostas' suggestion to wind-up the sharpening in Lightroom, and then added further sharpening when converting to web-quality. I don't know if this is improving image quality with the T and M-mount lenses, as I find signage within the images to be too sharp and brittle.

Above all that, the T's LCD screen is an excellent performer in terms of speed of composition. It's a much different experience compared to using a rangefinder viewfinder; both approaches definitely have their strengths:
