    It was a great time meeting you all, and shooting with you too. I can't wait to see some of the images we come up with. Also a thanks to David for suggesting Denver Pro Photo as our meeting spot. Travis treated us well. I just love that store.

    Yeah I'm glad I was able to make it, it was a good time and I enjoyed meeting you all. As for DPP? I had forgotten how nice that place is and I'm sure my wife will soon hate the place.
    Lets do it again soon!

    I don't remember who was in on the conversation but I think it was at the brewery that I mentioned that Canon had made a rangefinder with an f1.7 lens (the Canonet QL17). I think the context was that it may be the fastest lens put on a rangefinder. I had forgotten that Canon also made the 7 which has a lovely f0.95 lens, which I think is the fastest lens available on a rangefinder. Could be wrong though, anyone know of a faster one?

    There are tons of RF lenses (fixed and otherwise), both past and present that are equivalent to, or faster than, f/1.7, but only one as fast as the old Canon TV lens.

    The fastest fixed RF lens from the old days I can think of is the Yashica Lynx 14. It has a f/1.4 aperture (hence the name). Yashica's Electro series (also fixed lens) from the 70s offered f/1.7 lenses.

    You still see the Canon f/.95 lenses floating around on the forums, usually for well below $1k. Images made with them are pretty dreamy. Whether that's good or bad depends on what you want from a lens :-). The old Noctilux f/1 is also available used for around $3k.

    Konica once made a 60mm f/1.2 Hexanon in M-mount, as well. Pretty expensive on the used market at around $3k I think.

    And, as Derek mentioned, Leica continues to make the fastest RF lens in production: The current Noctilux is a cool $11k, though, so I probably won't ever own one (or even hold one for that matter -- too risky).

    Voigtlander also currently produces a couple of very fast RF lenses: the 50mm f/1.1 and 35mm f/1.2 Noktons. They are very reasonably priced (depending upon how reasonable you are), especially used.

    There are tons of f/1.4 and f/1.5 lenses available for M-mount (of which my little Voigtlander 35 is one) and Leica Thread Mount.


    There, more than you ever wanted to know about large-aperture RF lenses.

    OK, at long last, here are my picks/pics from the meet-up at Gates Rubber Company. Such an uplifting place to shoot -- dark like my soul . Unfortunately, my lovely wife didn't specify TIFF files for my scans at the lab, so I got JPGs . I did some pixel-peeping and they still look pretty darn good, and didn't need much editing so no harm (or not much) was done to the JPGs.

    I love Delta 100, but that Adox did some pretty nice things, too, I think. And the Ektar is stunning (first color film I've shot in recent times).

    Thanks for posting the pics Mike. That ektar looks really nice. I will soup mine this week and hope to have some posted this week too.

    Excellent shots Mike! Nicely done with the ektar! I souped mine last night and will get them scanned this week (I have a few shots more on my last roll, so they'll have to wait a few days).

    Here are my first shots. I still have another 10 shots to go through after I finish the roll. So, hopefully there will be more coming soon...
