Writing in protest ....

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I acquired a 90mm Summarit-M f2.5 to add to my kit, and I wanted to test it so I took a brief walk in the city centre today where there was a fairly muted climate change protest. Ironic really as it was bitterly cold in the wind. Here is one of the results:

Leica M240 + 90mm Summarit-M f2.5

That looks really good Gerry. Judging by the two gentlemen in background that you were stopped down maybe f4?  I was just pulling my 90mm Tele-Elmarit  out and into my bag to use with the M262 this weekend.

Thanks for your kind comments. In fact the exposure was 1/125 at f16.

Ah okay, as I wrote f4, I figured that was a lot of DOF for the distance between subject and background but would not have guessed more than f8 :)

Looking at the lens dof scale, the dof at about 8 feet is probably no more than a couple of feet.
