  1. Thank you guys for the comments. Timing on this one was perfect. Went out into the garden this morning and it was there. Had to take the image. Andreas
  2. Hi Guys, While the Northern Hemisphere goes into Winter, down here in the South have Spring. Here is an image of a Day Lilly. It only flowers 1 day, then falls off. 90mm Macro-Elmar-M mounted on a NEX-5. 1/1250 Sec, f/5.6, ISO 200. Thank you for looking. All comments welcome. Andreas
  3. Hi Guys, Thanks for the compliments. This side things are going well - aside from lots of working hours. Andreas
  4. Hi Guys, Went for a quick drive through the Khomas Hochland yesterday. Came upon this water hole, and low and behold, an Egyptian Goose had moved in already. Water does not last very long here by us. 50mm Cron, NEX5 Body, 1/640 Sec, f/8.0, ISO 200. Must say that this combo is working great for me, NEX body with Leica M glass. Plus you get to focus through the lens. Thanks for looking. Andreas :-) Have attached the image, with a 100% crop just to prove that the Goose is there...
  5. Hi Guys, Have not been posting for a really long time. Will hopefully start getting more time for photography again. Here's an image captured on a Sony NEX5 with a 50mm Cron. The resolving power of Leica lenses is still amazing. 1/2000 Sec, f/5.6, ISO 200. Thanks for looking. Andreas

    Hi Louis, I love this image. Why should people all be put into the same box - I think this shows individualism in our modern corporate world. Well spotted. Thank you for sharing this one with us. Andreas
  7. Hi Paul, Thanks for your kind words. You are absolutely right, this image works very well in B&W. Andreas
  8. Hi guys, Here's an interesting capture taken at the New Rhodesfield Station on the Gautrain Project in Johannesburg, South Africa. Taken with a good old C-Lux 1, 102mm (equiv) 1/160 sec, f/11, ISO 100. Thank you for looking. All comments welcome Andreas
  9. Hi Juergen, Judging by the vegetation in the background, it looks very much like this was taken in the Sabie-Sands Game Reserve. Worked there for a long time, it was absolutely wonderful. Andreas
  10. Hi guys, Here's an image of an Aloe plant taken yesterday in the south of Namibia. This image was made on an old C-Lux 1 - still amazes me what kind of images this little camera can take. Thanks for looking. Andreas
  11. Hi Jan, Just wanted to say welcome to the forum. Please post some of those images for us to admire. Andreas
  12. Hi Brendan, When the M8 was first released, I also made the switch from SLR's to a Rangefinder. The M8 is an awesome camera and the perfect learning tool when you are new to RF's. Apart from a few technical features and the full frame vs crop factor issues, the M8 is an excellent tool. Aside from that is is does make an excellent backup body to the M9 - or you can use both when you shoot with different focal lengths without having to change lenses. Go for it, at least that way by the time you get your M9, you will have gotten the hang of RF's. Andreas PS: The 75 Cron makes
  13. Hi Guys, For some or other reason I have been fascinated by the X1. There are a lot of people here on the forum that use (and love) the Digilux 2. By all accounts the Digilux 2 is an excellent camera. I know the X1 does not have a zoom, but, do you think that the X1 will have the same dedicated following that the Digilux 2 has ? Any comment welcome. Andreas
  14. Hi ravinj, Just a quick question - on the first two images, about halfway along the top edge, there are two lines that extend down into the image. The first one probably about a third of the way into the image. Are those wires hanging down or is there a vertical line problem (like with the original M8) ? Andreas
  15. Hi Ryley, You have the vertical line problem. This was quite common in the early M8's. I had exactly the same problem too. The sensor is working fine - there is a faulty component on the board that reads the information out from the sensor. You will have to send the camera in for repairs - generally a free repair in Germany for a known problem. If you search for "vertical line" here on the forum you'll find many discussions about it. Good luck Andreas
