    My, my how our little hobby has grown

    what do you mean? Ken R0ckwell says that film is equivalent to 25MP! and it's "full frame". :P I don't shoot film for the "resolution benefits", I prefer it is a medium to work with. just like an artist chooses his medium (paint/watercolour/sculpture etc) I also like not having to work at a...

    Showcase Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4 DG Summilux

    Livnius you really made those photos more "Melbourne" with the colour tinge. very nice work. love the one from the gallery waterwall! (I'm missing home at the moment!)

    I'm no expert - but I would look for the light sources available and the direction onto/around your subject. It's easy to take heaps of pics to get it right, but try repositioning your subject in a relaxed pose sitting near a window (or other light source) and work with the light source coming...

    Mt. Dandenong on film

    thanks guys :) that first shot is thanks to a nice 21mm 4.5 Zeiss lens I've been using, and the colours are straight from Kodak Portra 160 NC. I went up a mountain on a public holiday, and for the most part of the morning I was in a cloud which I loved the effect of! I metered using my iphone...

    Best lenses you've *ever* used?

    Hrm... hard to pick... I favour compact portability combined with ergonomics and image character.... I'd start with my 50mm Leica M Summicron Rigid I also love the OM Zuiko 24mm 2.8 CV Nokton 25mm 0.95 hard to pick a third at the moment...

    [EXPIRED] Zeiss Sonnar ZM 50mm f/1.5

    I found my copy locally actually - off a photog that was moving to medium format so was selling his ikon, zm 50 1.5 and I think he had a 35mm biogon too. good luck. I also suggest trying the jupiter-8, (one I also want to get) but the zm 50 1.5 is quite a special lens for me.

    GF1 with Summarit 5cm 1.5 grainy no contrast

    i also believe the summarit has "soft as chalk" glass which is very easy to scratch and damage so be gentle. they do have a nice soft glow about them though. this looks like it may have suffered a bit of flare from a light source to the left?

    I like it but I got shafted. my workflow has changed to a less effective one using mission control in place of expose. mission control does not show minimised windows, nor does it arrange the windows in a clever manner. I'm really disappointed about this. ALSO - you can't use two finger swipe...

    For sale is my lovely nokton, oh how I will miss you. It is in mint condition - the only thing you will see on this are flecks of dust on the outside - which blow off easily, with some fingerprints on the barrel from handling it while taking the photos - of course they wipe away easily too...

    Is E-P2 still good?

    I don't think the e-p2 is much of an upgrade from a pl1. yeh you get manual controls but you lose the flash and the image quality is pretty much the same. I think the pl1 is 'meant' to slightly edge it out but who really notices these things? If you want a real upgrade i'd just wait til you can...

    Any eyeglass wearers use the eyecup on their VF-2?

    i use it without the eyecup, and with glasses and don't have any real problems except when there is strong side lighting then it can be harsh on the eyes. it's $15 extra - i know, but probably worth it.
