Apologies for the last shot

Just noticed it was for M lenses only, not A's. I did use it on M though

I just got this camera:



Along with my first M lens, the ubiquitous M50/1.7... And well, I know you all know this already, but this thing... It's SHARP!



Going to go out and take real pictures with it soonish. I'll be back.

Have fun Erik

I'm addicted to my M 50m/f1.7 - using as much as all of my other lenses added together.

Hello

Congrat to every one for those great shot...
Those small 50mm are great.

Now I have the M50 1.7 and a M50 1.4. I want to let one go and I can't make my mind.

The 1.4 seem to under expose more around f4 than the 1.7.
Those lens are about equal in sharpness and color. the f 1.4 is a bit faster.

If you would have to keep only one of those jewel, which one yould you keep.??

That pic looks heavily compressed.

My M 50 1.7 is fantastic, no hesitations to use it wide open, though I usually shoot at at least f/2 if the light's good. Sharp, sharp, well built, great size. If shooting on digital, I doubt the ~ half stop will make a difference, I think the 1.7 has better contrast and sharpness wide open.

I sold the pseudo-legendary K 50 f/1.2, replaced it with this, and don't really regret it.

If I were having a hard time deciding - indicating that I liked both of them roughly equally - I'd keep the 1.7 and sell the 1.4, as it should fetch a higher price.

Brilliant composition, in that you managed to catch three out of the four subjects (discounting the fifth who's almost entirely obscured) with their arms in an assortment of funny, bent-elbow positions. I like it as a theme. Intentional or accidental?

Thanks! I actually had my back turned to them and was shooting some flora,
when I heard them talking, turned around, liked the grouping, body language
and especially against that background, and took a couple snaps.

The kid who was obscured was talking politics, and had some opinions the
others seemed uncomfortable with, thus the insecure stances, I guess.

Here's what I was shooting right before I turned to see them:





Few minutes before that I was shooting these guys with the M 28:

I've just found this thread, and started reading in it. I've got an A-series lens, a K-series, and would like an M-series, maybe the original 40 mm pancake. I had never before used manual focus lenses, they are so much fun.

I'll start with the SMC-M 135 f/3.5.

The light was fading and it was very windy. These were taken on a quick 10 minute
walk that ended abruptly when my little guy's feet got cold (at least I think that's
what he was trying to tell me.) ISO 400 & 800, wide open or stopped down one
mostly.
I really like this first shot, a superb photo

Question

I've got a question.

I look through a lot of these photos, and a lot of people have really nice clear vibrant photos. While it's winter here, it's hard to get that because everything is almost like black & white, but I'm hoping in the spring I will be able to get that.

Is there a way in particular? I've knocked my contrast and sharpness up two, but anything else?

Thanks,

-Isaac

EDIT: I'm going to Washington DC in a few weeks, so I really hope to get some great results.

I have been doing all my PP in Lightroom. There is a lot of things you can do regarding colors, but the pretty basic stuff is to mess with clarity, vibrance and saturation settings. It's worth mentioning that reducing the exposure you have more saturated colors.

If you have photoshop, press Ctrl+U and adjust saturation and hue as you like.

I hope it helps.

Cheers,
Felipe

I have both Adobe lightroom and photoshop.
