goodbokeh's recent activity

  • I have the 50/3.5 and I recently purchased the 35-70 on sale. I will continue to use the 50 because its form factor is so small and discreet for public venues and when I'm taking a second smaller ...
  • Your Leica service story confuses me because the upgraded Leica MP you received is a film camera, yet you say the sensor was off in alignment.
  • Those are interesting, almost SciFi like artifacts from the 50S & 32-64. I've never seen that from any of my Bayer or X-Trans sensors using Adobe Camera Raw. A more intense implementation could be ...
  • Well, I suppose motion blur is possible. But all shots were on a tripod with a 2 second self timer and no breeze. I was using EFCS, not electronic shutter, because that is the way I use the camera. ...
  • kristian1, in contrast to your wonderful 35-70 landscape photographs here are two sterile test photos of my newly acquired $499.95 GF 35-70 @ 61.8mm head on head with my GF 63mm, which I highly ...
  • If you want a Fuji GF lens that has a higher close focus magnification than the 35-70 and a moderate telephoto perspective for portraits then the GF 120/4 macro is your answer. It would be a nice ...
  • Good deal. The f/1.0 Voigtlander Nokton is on my wish list also, it has tested out to be a brilliant lens.
  • Yes, the 50/2 Voigtlander Lanthar works very well on my M10M both in haptics and in resolution so you should be happy with that pair. I recommend CameraQuest-Steve Gandy. He's an authorized ...
  • Last weekend I went with the wife to the farmers market in preparation for Thanksgiving. The Q2 was shot at hip level @ f/2.8, face detection enabled, resting on top of my Billingham Hadley ...
  • The 50 Summicron V5 I have (and tested by others) has focus shift that peaks at f/4. This has also been confirmed to me by Leica USA as a common trait of this lens. So on your M11 (if you pixel ...
  • Replied in Q2 Dream over.
    Well that's too bad for you Bonsainz. If you wanted a Sony street camera that performed very well the A1 would have been a better choice with its stacked (and silent) shutter. Much more discreet ...
  • I did the same as you bobby. I prefer primes but at $499 resistance was futile for me :-) Well, Kasson and many others have given the 35-70 very good reviews, comparable to the 32-64. Given its ...
  • Your experience with the M11 is disappointing but not unusual. Fred Miranda sold his M11 and went back to using the M10R. That model and the M10M is what I have. Mint versions are reasonable in ...
  • The X-T3 is entering its twilight years and was not recommended to the OP because: - No ibis for his 35/1.4 for low light. - AF is inferior in operation and options to the X-H2/X-H2S/X-T5. - The ...
  • This thread, discovering and exploring the definition of standard zooms, brings up an image of French Chefs being introduced to a Cheese and Pickle sandwich. Then debating the ratio of cheese to ...
  • With you options as outlined I would go with the GFX system but likely leave the 63 home and take the 80 if you're happy with the 35-70. Your Fuji APS-C system is showing its age. I would have ...
  • The X-H2 is very comfortable to hold and the controls similar to my 100S except for the flippy screen, which I'm OK with. For macro I have the GF 120/4 and XF 80/2.8. I've not done head on head ...
  • The 18/1.4, 23/1.4 II or 33/1.4 would offer so many different low light and OOF options and the IQ would be so sparkling it might be painful to use the 16-80 much.
  • You owe yourself some excellent glass, even if you stay with the X-T3. That 26MP sensor can rock with the XF80 (has OIS) for example. The new XF 30/2.8 macro coming out tomorrow also promises to ...
  • I would think that detail is exactly what is needed to ascertain a painterly effect or to encourage worms. Here's another X-H2 photo with a XF 8-16 @ 5.6 and 8mm. Again with Adobe Camera Raw with ...
