"fast garage" BMW in B+W | EPSON R-D1 | 35 Summicron ASPH | ISO1600

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

A dark parking lot, EPSON R-D1, as usual, fixed at ISO 1600 and one wide open Leica lens (I think, it was the 35 Cron ASPH in this case).

 

I don't care so much about the new BMWs - this scene catched my eye for the stark geometry of the floor marks and wall paint of the parking lot, combined with a fast car.

The styling of BMWs in general has seldom pleased me (the 507 and the Z8 are very lovely exceptions), but your photo is excellent for composition, geometry, light, contrast and tonal range.

Thanks Stu for the kind words and I am with you with the BMW styling.

I think, there is just one classic car missing, you didn't mention - The M1 (which design wise is not really a BMW at all ;-) )

nice photo! I'm an e46 m3 owner - but the newer bangle has not pleased me - I'm glad he's gone. In many ways i preferred my e36 m3.

      I am brand new to Leica and have purchased the M240 just a couple of days ago. I have always wanted to own a Leica and the opportunity presented itself and I could not let it pass by. Because I am so new to Leica I could use some recommendations on lens selection. I have roughly 6k to spend and cannot decide if I should buy the 35 f1.4 Summilux or for roughly the same money buy the 35 and 50 Summicron f2's.
       
      Is there a 2k difference between the 35 lux and cron? Either way it seems like I win.
       
      I have gone back and forth and could give you 50 reasons why each option is the right one for me but I was hoping to hear some feedback from the community. I know that there are other lens options out there but at this time I only want to go with Leica and only buy new.
       
      My wife is buying me the M240 for Christmas so I don't get to use it until then it gives me just enough time to get some lenses here before Christmas. It is killing me by the way!
       
      Any help would be appreciated.

      Ich freue mich sehr seit kurzem Eigentümer einer Leica X1 zu sein. Eine wirklich tolle Kamera.
       
      Obwohl ich sehr überzeugt von der Kamera bin, empfinde ich im Rauschverhalten eine auffallende Störung. Um die genannte Störung hervorzuheben, habe ich ein Foto mit folgenden Einstellungen geschossen:
       
      ISO 3200
      Blende: 2,8
      Verschlusszeit: 1/60
       
      Auflösung: 12,2 M
      Kompression: DNG + JPG Super Fein
      Film-Voreinstellungen: Standard*
      Schärfen: Gering
      Stättigung: Mittelhoch
      Kontrast: Standard
       
      Die JPG und DNG Dateien sind unter folgendem Link zum Download bereit:
      http://www.volkanbaga.de/downloads_leica.html
       
      Im gesamten Bild sind auffallend grell-blaue Punkte zu erkennen. Zudem ist dieses Verhalten im unteren Feld verstärkter zu verzeichnen als oben. Der untere Teil scheint auch heller belichtet worden zu sein. Auch bei ISO 1600, manchmal auch bei 800 kann man dieses "Rauschverhalten" noch erkennen.
       
      Bei meiner Suche im Internet nach einem ähnlichen "Rauschverhalten" bei der X1 konnte ich keine Beiträge hierzu finden, bzw. kein Foto mit ähnlicher Charakteristik sichten.
      Deshalb hoffe ich hier in diesem Forum, Meinungen von X1 Besitzern zu erhalten.
       
      Von meiner Canon 450D Spiegelreflexkamera kenne ich diese Art von Rauschen und einen helleren unteren Bereich bei ISO 1600 überhaupt nicht. Deshalb bin ich verunsichert, ob ein Defekt an der Kamera vorliegt. Dass bei diesen ISO-Einstellungen ein starkes Rauschen zu erwarten ist, ist mir klar, aber die strahlend blauen/roten Punkte finde ich unansehnlich.
       
      Da ich oft in dunkleren Lichtverhältnissen fotografiere, wäre es frustrierend, wenn ich mich damit abfinden müsste.
       
      Ist das Bild-Ergebnis normal oder ist von einem Defekt auszugehen?
      Vielen Dank!
      Volkan

      I thought correction for coma (the little orange wings on the bright point light sources near the frame edges) was one of the hallmarks of the ASPH 35mm lens designs.
       
      However this new 35 Summicron ASPH does not seem to be doing nearly as well as the Summilux, nor is it much different than the 35 pre-ASPH.
       
      Just looking for feedback from other 'cron ASPH users before I raise it with Leica.
       
      M9, ISO 400, 1/250th sec. f/2.0
