    Milestones. Wow. Congrats!!

    Mom and Lucy seem to be doing well, definite relief I'm sure.

    Oh, and superb photos - with the 50mm Summilux? (Well, this *is* a photog forum. ;) )

    Thanks Carl, I took the M and 50mm Summilux to the hospital but reclaimed my Sony A7RII whilst I was there! I took a few pics with the Sony and the FE55 1.8 and looking at them side by side in Lightroom I found that although the Sony was less grainy and the lens very sharp, I found the resulting images to be much less "human" so to speak. For me, this is where the Leica scores, a much more organic photo emerges :) Not that I want to give up the Sony either.

    That organic quality is a difficult-to-quantify but important characteristic. It could be that beyond a certain performance level, you might have to choose either greater accuracy or evocative rendering. That's my suspicion, anyway.
