The Conversation.

This is from Test Roll #1 (evaluating my M2-R and Voigtländer 40/1.4).

I thought I was shooting @ f/1.4, but realized too late I was @ f/2.8… hence the underexposure.

Still, I like the moment that was caught; in fact I like it more than anything else I’ve done lately.

I’ve re-processed my image Garden, 3, using similar techniques I used to use when processing my M9 files.

So…. I’m still experimenting.  Wondering what people think (I’m looking at you jh).

As a point of comparison…

In follow up to the Voigtlander 40/1.4 post, where I evaluate central sharpness on the Nikon Z7 at various lens apertures, here’s what the Nikon 50/1.8S lens does wide open @ f/1.8:

Clearly, this lens is operating on another optical level (the advantages of newer lens design and manufacturing, software trickery, as well as a larger size).
