    Challenge! Day to Day 278

    This day marks the 75th anniversary of Churchill's "Iron Curtain" speech; a take on the times' political developments so immensely popular he went on to repeat it over and over for several years to come (he gave another version of it in Zurich in 1947)...

    The often disregarded Voigtländer Ultron 28mm f/2, at f/5.6. No APO, no ASPH., just nice glass ... To be honest, my Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 (non-ASPH.) may be contrastier and appear sharper, but I'm really pleased by the rendering of the Ultron in most cases ... smooth, but certainly not mushy or...

    Leica New Voigtländer 35mm lenses

    The new APO Summicron will launch at a price of $8200. Go figure ... However, as with the 50mm APO, it's really tiny compared to the Voigtländers. Do I care? Not at that difference in price - and definitely not as far as performance is concerned: The Voigtländer APO-Lanthars are all spectacular...

    Grey day here as well, but thanks to a glitch in the matrix (some hardware that's not working properly), I got a bit of respite to take a little walk. This is just me being silly ... I just wanted to try the macro mode, to be honest. M.

    A sombre memory, yet surprisingly little known in the Northern hemisphere: The 1985 Algarrobo earthquake off the Chile coast was a hellish one - its 177 victims may not appear record-breaking, but about a million people were left homeless. Yes, the earthquake received so little "Northern"...

    Challenge! Day to Day 275

    I utterly loved mine - until some humongous piece of dust or debris found its way onto the sensor, and the cost of cleaning proved unreasonably high (almost as much as a GX9 would have cost at the time). I still have the S95 somewhere ... better not to think about it. Anyway, worthy shot! I was...

    Challenge! March Symposium: The Small Sensor Look.

    You know ... sometimes, I really enjoy shooting with "lesser" (i.e. older or lower spec'd) cameras simply because it takes the quest for perfection out of the equation entirely. And it very often leads to me being pleasantly surprised with the results instead of dismaid by some minor niggles...

    What books are you reading for pleasure these days?

    I'm reading - or should I say "tackling"? - "Legends of the Condor Heros" by Jin Yong, a hugely successful series that so far wasn't available in its entirety for the non-Asian market. It's a Chinese classic with a strong emphasis on martial arts. It's definitely gripping - even though it's...

    I'll be very happy to see the back of the super-cheap Rollei CompactLine 50 I used for the "lo-fi" challenge - but I have also dug out the old Nikon P50, and while I'll switch to the Nikon 1 V1 at some point (probably pretty soon), I'll start the Small Sensor Symposium with this dinosaur.

    Leica 50mm woes

    For the record, I for one didn't seek the Summicron-M, I bought it along with a wonderful film camera, the Zeiss Ikon rangefinder - which was what I wanted, and the price was very low for the pair. Someone acted as a benefactor, you might say. But I expected to be amazed - which obviously left...

    Leica 50mm woes

    I found his actual troubles with both Leica lenses pretty gruesome - both seemed to need attention and/or repair in order to be at their (potential) best, and neither was at the time of testing. Granted, this can happen to lenses that are well used and pretty old - but it also goes to show that...
