Prospect Park With The Leica 18mm Super Elmar:
Hey everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend. It was a lazy Sunday for me today :). I’m actually a little tired from yesterday’s trip to the PhotoPlus Expo. I thought I’d post a few more images that I took with the M 240 and the 18mm Super Elmar a few days ago. I was visiting a friend in Park Slope, and we decided to check out Prospect Park to see if we could find some fall foliage. My friend brought along his Sony RX100, which many of you already know is a fantastic little camera. The colors of the trees haven’t completely changed yet but we did find a few nice looking ones.
The 18mm Super Elmar is one of the coolest lenses that I have ever owned. At F3.8, it’s the slowest lens that I own but because of it’s largest aperture, it’s a very small lens, which I like a lot. Yes, the slower aperture makes it a little more difficult to use at night or at concerts but the M 240’s high ISO capabilities make up for it. I was planning on writing up a review for this lens soon but to tell you the truth, I’ve just been spending my time enjoying the lens. I figured the 18mm Super Elmar has been out for quite some time, so there’s really no rush in popping out a review for it.
On Tuesday, I’ll be in Disney World (I’m a kid at heart ). I’m bringing my X-E1 with me but I was kind of hoping I would be able to get a copy of the new XF 23mm F1.4 R lens to write up a review. I guess I’ll have to wait until I get back. Anyway, I hope you all like the photos. Have a great Sunday, everyone!
