I honestly canít fault the lens/camera combination I am currently using.....again except for sensor-size differences I really cannot see much difference in what my LUMIX GX9 camera, and a £19 eBay sourced Soviet Russian....INDUSTAR 61 D vintage film camera lens can do compared with results from the monochrome Leica cameras.

I include other shots from a Street-Shoot yesterday... the camera set on its special MONO focussed at F 8 to 6 feet... which produced the results shown, by literally ...pointing and shooting.

Although I try to avoid cropping if I can, I do use it to straighten or to improve composition... then use PIXELMATOR PRO iPad photo-software to adjust sliders and sharpness if required.

I also use...AFINITY PHOTO software by SERIF ... It too is very good, but a steep learning curve to master.

The results produced here, aren the reason, I sold four on my M 4/3 rd AF lenses yesterday... they were surplus to requirements.

Other shots from the dayís shoot included...

They all look very sharp and really is doing a good job. A great set.

Terrific set of pics....I use a battered old Tair 300mm from a russian Photosniper outfit on my sony a6000....a weird 450mm combo I confess!
