Thanks for the earlier comments, Michael, Charles, Ron
Ash, very nice set from your Seattle trip. The skyline panorama and kayak shots are my favorites.
Charles, love your portraiture work as always. I like how the subtle blues on the top of the composition compliment the person's skin tones on the Tainan portrait.
Ron, more excellent work at the peninsular. Can never go wrong with the 28Cron for rocks, landscape and pulling micro contrast details. Damn it, you always make me look in disbelief at your pp, and I meant it as a compliment BTW, 21Lux at f/11 I'm not alone in stopping down Leica glass
Najibs, very nice sets and cool van shot with the X1. That 24mm Elmarit seems to be quite capable lens with decent bokeh to go.
Gary, beautiful sunset shots! Love that shot with the 90Cron.
Bruno, some excellent B&W street shots. #4 on the first set is my favorite. The color shots are also really nice, some very nice moments captured there.
Michael, I agree with you on shooting film. I actually like the experience of it, plus the film Ms have a better built and thinner body compared to the M8/9, in my opinion. Only reason I don't shoot film that often is its difficult for me to get consistent results without needing to put in a lot of effort in the entire process, from storing film, developing, keeping track of chemical expiry, scanning, etc etc... I think a digital M is a good compromise especially if we tend to shoot a lot.
So the general consensus is to keep to the older M9 firmware if we haven't seen any SD card errors? I have not upgraded, too busy lately. Battery shutting down at 40-50%? Is Leica trying to get us to buy more batteries now
It seems that the M Mono is finally shipping? Charles have you got yours?
A few more night shots from Tokyo with the 50Cron pre ASPH.
