25/1.4 Leica..



12mm f2..

Thumbs up

Well done Greg. Nice color and good DOF on those shots. Car shows can be harder to shoot than a lot of people realize.

......I knew you would be there, great shots and the 7.5 surely was the 'ticket' lens for that shot, but my-oh-my the 12 & 25 are mouth-watering. Beautiful images and the sharpness is right at unrealistic.

My Mopars both need a 'shine' to 'show' after all the rain, maybe next weekend.... I'm too busy this weekend to care (lol).

Making me wish I would have never sold my 62 Vette. Sigh.... Nice shots Greg, great color.

Thanks, Bob.

Yes, you knew I would! Saturday's going to be WAY too crowded. I am going back Sunday, but with Katherine to actually car shop, so Thursday night was a logical choice to be the picture-taking visit. Very small crowd, comparatively-speaking, with lots of workers trying to grab anyone who would walk by them to try and sell something....the one negative about being there on a quiet night.

Thanks, Steven.

The lights and reflections wreaked havoc more than a couple of times on the contrast detection AF system of the E-P3, especially with the Leica 25/1.4, but it also had it moments with the 12mm f2 and 45/1.8 Zuikos, too.

Mmm, wonder if the new OM-5 will be better in that particular focus issue.

Greg, this Leica 25/1.4 you mentioned, is this a Panny/Leica lens? Can't seem to find it in my B&H catalog.
