Blue and Red (Test Shots, Mamiya 7).

Test Roll #1, Frames #4 and 5 of 10.

In the first shot I was re-familiarizing myself with the dynamic range, in the second the bokeh.  In both I was testing for the focus accuracy of my rangefinder.

1/125 | f/4 for both images.

So far, so good.

All that power.

I’m living in the 21st century, doing something mean to it
Doing it better then anybody you ever seen do it
Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it
I guess every superhero need his theme music

No one man should have all that power…

—Kanye West, Power.

Leica fixed the skin tones.

The M10 images I’ve seen so far lead me to conclude:  Leica fixed the skin tones.

Tomato-Face technology has been rightfully abandoned.

Rejoice!
