This is from the Summilux M 50 ASPH. on M8. This lens is compact and very fine quality. 46mm filter size. No steroids. A sample shot in lower light at f/1.4. This was after sunset, from the back door of a unit at Yosemite View Lodge. Too dark for me to see any detail, not too steady handhold. http://gallery.leica-users.org/v/gh/a/usa/g/Y23.jpg.html 2009/2/10 Edward J Caliguri <firstname.lastname@example.org> > > > > Thanks Howard!
