I discovered the 28 FL about two years ago, and like it very much...

Right, but still, some of the scenes are bound to go beyond the range of the sensor and/or monitor, and the highlights and shadows seem to be pretty well reigned-in. So you don't do any highlight/shadow salvaging at all?

I guess exposure with the kind of meter found in the M8 (and all metered Leica Ms) will be better metered (all things considered) with a wide-angle lens than with a longer focal length. But since the M8 has the latitude (and temperament) of slide film, and given that it sounds like you have disciplined yourself to expose with slide film, I can see how this is more straight-forward to you.

I usually don't have time to meter the scene and reflect; I have to make some pretty quick decisions. This is a reminder (to me) that skills learned in one kind of photography can be very useful for other kinds.

Thanks.

Well yes, I suppose I do, but I don't access it through the shadow/highlight sliders. I getter better overall results by using a combination of curves and especially the relative lightness slider applied to specific colors that can be accessed through Capture One Six's color editor. Since I don't use the M8 for black and white, I haven't yet thought of what I'd do in that case.

Not exactly. Have to be careful with WA on the M8, because the meter is metering for everything the lens sees, including that part outside of the crop. Even on the R4A, metering with a super wide can be tricky.

Negative print film gives you extra latitude for quick decisions. Digital (except on the RD-1, M8, and M9) makes bracketing a cinch. Acquired skill that becomes second nature on the other hand is probably the name of the game for really successful photography, and I admire people who cultivate it!

Different lenses, bodies, formats and media, all mixed up to emphasize the fact: all are 28mm focal lenght, or equivalent.

And no "street", no post processing.

I really like this FOV and you can do alot walking in or stepping back.

Nature...






Architecture...












Social...





(For lens and image detail information look at my 28mm album.)

I've never really seen myself as a "28mm guy" but you all just make it look so easy! I clearly need to get closer. Great thread.
