Thank you, Dave. Scotland is very nice; nice people and beautiful landscapes.

Congratulations on your 100 mm, Rob! I agree the difference in FOV between the 70, 100 and 120mm may be close, but it seems to me that all three lenses draw an image quite differently, so they each have their own purpose I guess. And though I have the 70mm and the 120mm, I too lust for the 100mm because of its size and the beautiful way in which it draws an image, as your photos and - Michael's stitched landscapes - prove to me once again. Could you give us a ballpark figure of the price you paid? Some say autofocus with the 100mm is more difficult, did you find that to be true?

100mm Summicron is prone to focus error. It is the least consistent S glasses in term of focus accuracy but it also happen to be my most used glass given I almost never use AF, maybe only let AF bring to the ballpark and manual focus.

Great shots, Michael!  

I came across a pre-owned S100 last week, that I just could not pass up for the asking price. Your photos with the S100 encouraged me to go ahead, so, thank  you.  Rob

Rob, Congratulation! You have good taste on lens and finally have it in your hand with good price. Enjoy it :)

I'm not sure how to answer in the context of "worth the money".  

For me, as a hobbyist, the bokeh of the S100 is a bit different and and the size is more palatable, similar to the S 70.  The S120 gives one macro capability, is big, but is just outstanding.  

Does it make sense to own both? I'm not sure,  particularly if one has the S70.  (This question might better be posed to ZHNL, or some of the others with more experience with use on the forum).  I'm enjoying both at the moment, and I just came back from a trip having used the S 120 on my Leica SL, and loved the results.

Even if I were to abandon the S system, I'd think that I'd keep both lenses for use on the SL (and SL2), as they are "that good" and so well priced on the pre-owned market at the moment.

Regards, Rob

 

 

Bokeh of 100cron and 120APO has minor difference, they are both smooth but 120 APO is smoother at same subject project ratio and 100cron has noticeable more blur. Of course 120 can get macro shot done throw away everything in background. If you reach toward minimal distance of 100cron for half body portrait, it show a hint amount of SA which is a desirable rending some after. 120 APO is all sharp and fidelity at that distance.  100cron took big portion of my images shared here simply for three reason, I had S006 and I can make good use of that half stop light, 2nd size and last: for two lens S set up, I usually bring 24 100 or 35 100. 100cron can be stitched to 70mm glass or can be used for family portrait.  There is another reason that I usually have two body setup with one of them S and other either Leica M with 21/50 or RX1(os Sony A7x I had) or Z7 with 24-70. In that sense, no wonder I have lots of 100cron images to show. 

Here is one more in BW

The S120 is just so versatile, especially for those having and benefitting from the CS version. Yes, it is larger, but (also) due to the recessed front element a shade isn’t needed most of the time.

Oh yes you are totally right. But am I only thinking that pictures made with the Leica S of such car interiors look like the professional photos made for car companies and marketing?

Yes, and Greg Haag's photos are testament to that too. Rob

Finally got to go back to stitch some pan images from a trip to Yosemite.  Here is a shot from just off the parking lot at Glacier Point, you can see Half Dome, Vernal Fall and Nevada Fall from there.  There are many parks in the US I have not gotten visit yet, but this is my favorite so far.
