Below is a quick kitchen test on the 246, f/4 at ISO 800:


Viso Mono Test

Definitely a learning curve here! Pretty neat though -- the 65mm lens focuses from infinity down to 13" with this particular focusing mount. Shooting in Aperture Priority, you need to give the camera a second to read the light before you take the picture (press the lever until the mirror comes up, wait a split second, then take the picture), so it's a bit slower to work with (plus you get a temporary blackout), but it's really not too bad. Certainly not a whole lot worse than the digital 'Visoflex' experience on the 246. I think it was definitely worth the try!
Excellent. I need to pick me up a Visoflex III. You just inspired me, LOL...

The B&W option I've been wanting for a while to go with my M262 and 240, a really clean, nice M246.

The backyard Maple, unfortunately due to come down next month. It's likely the oldest tree on our street.

I just got the 35/2 V1 Summicron (M3 version w/goggles) back from being cleaned by the Camera Wiz himself. The once-hazy glass is now beautifully clear. Unfortunately I need to send both the lens and the Monochrom body back to Frank to have the goggles properly calibrated (can only be done when attached to an M-body). In the meantime, I can use it with the EVF -- this is at f/2 @ ISO 800:

Another bit of gorgeousness. 35/2 Summicron V1, just back from the full spit'n'polish by Frank Marshman/Camera Wiz. All the glass is now perfect, goggles properly calibrated with the 246. With the 1.25x viewfinder magnifier it's an ideal view.

Working off my iPad in our RV in Canada, so I’m not sure how these photos are going to look (and I’m only able to use LR CC with basic adjustments). Hope they look okay - if not, I’ll replace them when I’m back home.

Both with the 35/2 Summicron V1 (M3 version). Magical lens.

These look particularly good to me (on my 27 inch monitor). Of course I am also drawn to the composition but tonality right in there!

Thanks David -- I'm back home now and will go through them again. A few of them look dark to me on my home computer, so I'll likely replace a few.

Actually the "Still in the North Country" group look very good to me as well. I was just immediately drawn to the first two I mentioned. After seeing those, it was tough to switch gears and appreciate the "nature" images after taking in the first two which are a world apart.

I agree the Louise image and the last one for sure is a bit dark. It would be fun to see those from your regular workflow

Just replaced Louise -- you're right, that first one sure was dark!
