Ok, forgive my lack of skill and possible breaches of copyright..

 

S2, 70mm, ISO160, f2.5, 1/180s

 

Shot snatched of a passerby, in a street near you...

 

The jpeg for the forum can only show a rough image but (75Mb) original file shows great detail for f2.5 and nice colour and exposure.

Detail is right. I can tell that he smokes from his teeth and that a nose-hair clipper would be an appropriate gift for him.

 

Oh, he also had Thai for lunch

Robert,

 

A very pleasant portrait where you've connected with the subject and produced a beautifully natural smile.

 

I was also amazed at the level of detail in the S2's files and it even shows through in this tiny jpeg. What do you make of the out of focus areas in the background?

Wilfredo, Alberto and Pete

 

Thank you for your kind comments

 

Pete - I'm not sure that I'd use the expression 'Bokeh', it'smore an orderly and controlled rendering of less and less focussed areas. The 70mm Summarit appears to easily allow for control of DoF and as an aside, the autofocus (used here) appeared precise and quick

 

Of course this was just out in the street and I strongly suspect that in a studio environment, there's a whole extra story to tell

I'd love to see the full rez file - I bet it's amazing

 

Is 75Meg the RAW out straight of the camera? Gonna need a faster PC / Bigger Disk when I win the lottery

Robert, I really enjoy this photo. The color, detail, bokeh, and overall feel are very pleasing and natural.

 

Reds, I am sure the full rez file is amazing. I have shot a few hundred frames with the S2 and you gotta see the detail to believe it. It is addictive.

Thank you for your kind comments

 

James and George - I wish

 

Overall my very short experience with it showed a very tractable and capable camera that was also easy to hold and use

      Anyone know if there is anything special about the rendering of this lens ? saw it today at the shop, the small screw on the ring in front of the aperture is interesting..wondering what its for.

      Hi everyone, I know I do not contribute a lot but I always enjoy your images and discussions. I would appreciate your advice please.
      My S2-P has the sensor issue and as it is out of warranty now, I have to pay to replace the sensor. The two obvious options are to replace the sensor with one that will not have the issue (that is what I was told) or upgrade to S007 at a good price. My problem is that I loved the output of my S2 and although I do not use it regularly (because of size and lack of time), I always felt I had a soft spot for this camera. I also care about the cost, especially when the Fujifilm GFX is so much cheaper.
      When I thought a bit more about all possible options I see the following:
      1) Upgrade the S2 sensor
      2) Upgrade to S007
      3) Sell all Leica and buy Fujifilm GFX and lenses at considerable discount to S007
      4) Wait until the S3 is out and then see if the price makes sense, or if the S007 price goes down
      5) Buy an X1D (just joking :))
      6) Do nothing and only use my S2 wide open, as I usually do...
      What would you suggest? I have used my S2 for portraits/street mainly and pictures of the family life... I also enjoyed using it with adapted lenses (Mamiya/Hasselblad)
