A few Speedweeks Leica photos are up

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Leica Photography : One Thread

Hi everyone. I scanned a few photos from various races I attended in Florida last week. This was my first racing assingment since I switched to the Leica R system. Very happy with results, but I have to admit I miss my old Canon 70-200f2.8L for some of this stuff. It could track a race car better than me! Here is the URL. I'm still HTML stupid.

Lance, is your 250mm lens the late model? I think I see familiar bokeh effects in one of the photos:

Doug, my 250 is an old 2-cam with the fixed mount. I saw a few photos you have with your review, and you're right, the bokeh does look similar. The out of focus areas are one place that my 70-200f2.8 Canon lens can't hold a candle to the 250 Telyt. Or the 90f2 Summicron for that matter!
