    The model is definitely lovely, but the pictures more than do her justice. Very nice work!

    These are ready for the Women's Fashion Catalogs!

    Beautiful women, timing of the photographs really captures them.

    Colors look great, focus perfect and the appropriate aperture has been used for my taste. Wish I could have been there as I too would have learned something.

    Really nice set. The 3D-popup in the B&W is outstanding...

    Well, I was teetering about the 50mm Summilux ASPH purchase, and this thread put me over. I'm sure I'll thank you later, Christina, but for now lots and lots of stuff to sell :eek:.

    Your forums are dangerous to the pocket book Amin. I rented the 21 SEM this past week to photograph the interior of my house. Our realtor has already asked me to shoot the view from a spec home he's representing. I see a wide wide angle in my future and probably the best bang and flexibility is the 16-18-21 Leica. Ouch.

    A less expensive alternative to a Leica wide is the Zeiss ZM 18mm 4.0 Distagon. Code it as a 21mm 2.8 Elmarit ASPH and the image quality is nothing short of amazing. Highly recommended.

    I borrowed a zeiss 50mm 1.5 Sonar for these shots, Matthew has very kindly offered to sell it to me so now I'm trying to sell a few things too!

    Big vote from me for the Zeiss lenses, my 25mm 2.8 is very sharp and has the Zeiss pop, plus the Zeiss lenses are mostly small and light:)

    Oops, don't know where I got the idea that these were the Summilux!

    Why the sad faces? Now you have both :cloud-9-039:. Or can always sell the Summilux with good resale value :daz:

    Ah, just figured it out. Your Flickr photos say Summilux because of the camera setting. Knew I wasn't crazy. Btw, this was the shot with the rendering that sold me on what I thought was the Summilux ;): https://www.flickr.com/photos/christilou1/14555419563/
