The scorching weather seems to subside a little. I took this opportunity to further experiment with Leica 50mm f2 R Summicron with a few casual protrait. This lens really gives me a lot of room. It is a Cam I lens and 30 year old optical construction does not fail me at all. Even with such a harsh lighting environment, the lens renders more shadow details than most of pentax limited could offer me... Here are a few shots from the St Kilda Beach, Melbourne, Australia. All take at f2 but the EXIF always shows f2.4 All the metering data embedded in the images are not accurate.
