Its been pretty serious onthe forum lately so heres some pics !

1. A Flower shot - just taken after work in a restaurant:



2. A bearded face on an old church in Essex:



3. St John the Baptist's Church in Holland Park - taken yesterday at lunch during work




4. "Mongoose" - Bike just dumped on the street before I got into the office this morning



All pics converted from RAW using Lightzone for Linux.

Now the 12-60 would be a pretty sweet lens to have on the cam most of the time. I've been trying to weigh up what the best 2 lens set up would be ?

12-60ZD and the Leica D 50-150 OIS F3.5-5.6, which is due out sometime late 2007 ? or stick with the 14-54ZD and get the Leica D 14-150 ?

Cheers

nice work Harj
how are you liking lightzone ?

on twin lens
i would prefer a deep wide
so either the 11-22 or the 12-60, and the 50-200
from what i have seen of the 40-150, i wouldnt mind that either, and its so cheap

i think for lightweight travel tough
you could do well with the 12-60 and a 2x

EASY....the7-14 f4and 35-100 f2!

Now...seriously...if I were held to two lenses, it would be the 11-22 and 50-200 f2.8-3.5 Zuikos.

Great shots...HarjTT.

Rriley,

Thanks for the info and confidence in the other posting regarding the IQ figures. I'm counting the months....tomorrow is a free day for me. Definitely going somewhere to take pictures. Thinking about going by Arlington Camera too, but I'd probably do something stupid like walk out of there with yetanother bag, which I would need like a hole in the head (saying quietly to myself"you're saving for the E510, you're saving for the E510.....")

Those shots obviously need more pixels to be any good.

Yes they do look dated, don't they? It's a good thing that old camera and lens are finally being replaced. They obviously aren't getting the job done anymore. :-)

Thanks for the comments guys:

Riley,

I'm enjoying Lightzone and on a decent PC it does fly. My only complaints are (1) the NR tool which reminds me of the LR beta version - it doesn;t seem to make any difference so I don;t use it (2) WB presets would be cool as sometimes the WB I set like sunlight at 5500 is different from what I'd get say with LR (3) default settings would be nice like LR, not that I used them in LR but it would be nice to be able to see what the app would do to a file.

lens wise - well I'd love the 35-100f2 and 11-22 combo that would be just perfect. Realistically, I think I'm leaning towards the 12-60 as the main lens as long as its as sharp as or close as the 11-22 and then have the PanaLeica 50-150 OIS (depending on how it is) for anything else while I still have the E1. Then when i decide to upgrade the body I;d still be able to have IS on the 50-150 whether its on an Oly or Panaleica body. Not so sure on the new 50-200 as I'd know I'd hardly use the tele end of the lens although that could easily change.

Cheers

i think 12-60 might turn out to be a better lens it certainly has a better reach
that and 50-200 would make it all work from 24 to 400mm
once upon a time I would keep 5 lenses to do that

not to forget that they are SWD too
this will probably be the fastest AF around

its getting interesting with bodies
there seems to be so much hardware flying around
its hard to know when to stop looking

E-410, E-510, E-330, P-1, L1, D3, L1/2 maybe even another Leica
I notice too, that the Sigma DP1 has a 20.7 x 13.8mm sensor
thats dam close to 4/3
