The Brooklyn Botanic Garden has one of the most extensive planting of Japanese cherries outside of Japan. Every year the Japanese community in New York does a festival to celebrate this spectacular event. These shots were taken with the D1x and the 35-135 F 3.5-4.5 Nikkor.

Sicilia bedda, isula scarsa d'aqua ma ricca d'amuri. Partu, vegnu, m'avvicinu. Luntanu nnu ci pozzu stari cchiu'. Cuminciu a sintiri i toi ciavurii, i toi sapuri e comenciu a viriri li toi culuri. Comu pozzu stari luntanu. Solu taliannuti 'nta na carta geografica palesanu li tiu biddizzi. Chi triangulu beddu. Tuttu l'amuri chi niatri chi stamu luntanu e purtami chiusu dintra lu nostru cori nun si po' fari capiri a chiddi 'ccu nu tannu mai vista o assapuratu li toi beddizzi. La tua genti amurusa, li toi mari cavuri e virdi comu li toi campagni chi a primavera sunni di milli culuri. Vegnu, picchi stari luntanu di tie e' mpossibbili.
An ode in Sicilian to Sicily. I'm leaving today. I wiill be there soon!

The same superb sensor with more dynamic range and the same superb Leica Vario Summicron
that now goes to 90mm equivalent. But the deal maker is the ability to add an EVF to the camera thus making easier to use in daylight. I cannot stand to use the LCD screen to compose images. This little gem should be here soon. Let's hope that the distribution is better than it was for it's predecessor.
