Ok, first day out with the rented Monochrome. I had quite a few pictures that were out of focus. Definitely have to get better at zone focusing. Doing manual focus for street photography is definitely out of the question.

Just watch the DoF scale and don't be afraid of high ISO with the Henri...3200 ROCKS....

If the folks are coming in close I will shift the focus to say 5 ft where that right ion the line and if I'm at f/16 everything from about 3 ft to 15 ft will be pretty sharp. Also watch the shutter speed. I like to shoot moving things at 1/250 and faster if possible.

I rarely go slower than 1/500. Often when I shoot I am moving and if my subject is moving as well then 1/500 is the minimum, 1/1000 preferred.

I tried keeping the ISO down to no higher than 800 although normally on my x100 or E-M5 I do 3200 all the time. Will try it with the Monochrome as well.

Does any of you use the AUTO ISO option? I tried it but realized it would take more time than I have to get predictable results so I ended up setting it manually instead.

With the mono the stuff looks great at 3200. Better then my 5DIIs at 3500 and 6400. You can then shoot at f/11 at 1/500 even in the shadows and on over cast days and the stuff still looks great.

No I don't use auto ISO. For me it sorta defeats the purpose.

I think these were at 3200 no noise reduction.

Had some fun today walking around downtown SF with the Monochrome. The first one I know I missed the focus. The camera had fallen asleep so my initial shot at 3 meters were ignored and I forgot to move the focus dial as the camera woke up. Lesson learned.

I'm still working on technique with the MM. So how do you like it? I love the IQ. I am constantly amazed by the files every time I go to work on the images. I have 5DIIs and shot a bit with the 5DIII and these files are just a cut above. The review on Luminous Landscape said they compare to the Nikon D800.

I am not sure I fully have the understanding of grey tones to fully appreciate it, but it is fun to play with. This is my first adventure with a leica ever.

An insight on post processing? I have been processing them similar to how I do it with my other camera but I keep debating whether to do it differently. I was recommended to try Silver Efex which I may give a try once I return the camera.

I find this really amazing. Don't fear high ISO with the MM. Like I said the 5DII is good with high ISO but the MM blows it away. Check the MM at 1600 and 3200.
1600 ISO

IMAGE: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y118/airfrogusmc/L1000305.jpg

100%
