Doug and Edwin, thank you guys
Gary, very nice dreamy shot!
Doug, really nice high key shot of the classic GMC!!
Bruno, great variety of streets! Favourite shot is #7

In Tainan, and as I was about to leave Tayih Landis hotel for meetings, the Taiwan National Ballet company were putting on a press conference. The first two shots are with the 50 Nocti f/1.0, and the last shot with the Sony RX 100 for comparison

Charles,
I envy you for being able travel such exotic places....


Here is one from a hotel room in China.....
I thought it was pretty impressive for a near wide open shot....
I didn't want to capture the stains on the window....

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.

Thank you Joe and Paul

Paul, nice capture

Joe, great B&W street shots! Love the depth to your shots, particularly the first shot My eyes just want to walk through the scene. I have not received any word regarding the M-Mono yet!!

Gary - hmm, that image feels familiar... nice one!
Doug - wow, I really love how this one is composed with the various planes/sections. The color treatment really works well.
Bruno - excellent! One day I hope to make it to Lisbon. love 1, 4, 5 of the B&W and 6, 7 of the color.
Charles - Nocti looks great, as does the RX100. Seems like a good companion camera.
Joe - as always, lots to look at in these images and the B&W is excellent. No plan to update the firmware on my end...

Car is in for servicing and instead walked to a client meeting and took the long way back...

28 Cron 1/3000 @ f/2 ISO: 160 - it's a bit hazy looking due to shooting through dirty windows:






28 Cron 1/90 @ f/6.7 ISO: 160






28 Cron 1/4000 @ f/2 ISO: 160 (no ND)






28 Cron 1/250 @ f/11 ISO: 160






28 Cron 1/1500 @ f/2 ISO: 160






28 Cron 1/500 @ f/8 ISO: 160 - cropped maybe 30% or so






28 Cron 1/180 @ f/5.6? ISO: 320

Thanks Ron Yes the RX100 is an excellent companion. The RX100 is small that you dont have to think about the size, as it is like carrying a small mobile phone

Ron,superb series of compositions!!! Excellent in form and design, and of course great PP'ing. Love #6, and well seen

Shots late in the evening in Tainan streets, with the 50 Nocti f/1.0

Haha - I figured you would recognize that bokeh instantly. It is indeed the Nikkor 5cm f/1.4. I spent some time using it this past weekend and really enjoyed it. I have sent it in to get a full CLA and focus adjust to fix the front focusing issue. PS - I like #4 and 6 of your set.

Charles - I love the gritty pics!

End of story. M8, ZM35/2.

Wow Jonas - why? Sounds like there is a backstory to be told about your reason to sell the M8
Charles - love the moody exposure and light quality, especially in the image of the chairs.

Wrapping up the sunset and Bruce Peninsula series:

50 Lux ASPH 1/180 @ f/4.8 ISO: 320

Ron: I wrote a bit about it on the last page. Long story short, the advantages of a rangefinder did not overcome the shortcomings of such for me More specifically the annoying MFD and lack of auto focus, add some general quirks of the M8. But I'm glad I tried it, it was fun while it lasted and it didn't cost me that much

Jonas, your shots will be missed No doubt the right decision! There are some amazing cameras out there now, let alone what Photokina will add to list

Gary and Ron, thank you
Ron, you keep the finale of the sunsets for your last set! Wonderful colours and mood. The 90 Summarit brings out the richness in the shots, which I would attribute to the 28 Cron!
Joanlvh, nice capture.

Does this mean that the used ones just dropped $1k ?

Thanks Jonas - I missed that earlier.
Thanks Charles - yes, this sunset was a nice one and I agree the 90 Summarit has a nice quality to it.
Carsten - interesting, thanks for the link. That's a pretty tell-tale sign something is coming for Photokina! But I already blew the budget today on a Canon 1DX, my first Canon purchase since January 2010.

My guess is whatever is announced, such as an M10, will be hard to get for the next few months anyway, so I'll let the hype blow over and wait for the early beta-testers, oops, users to provide feedback. Yes, there are a heap of things I'd like to see updated from the M9, but I have to be honest that I'm pretty satisfied with it in general and am sure I can live with it for a while longer. We'll see what Photokina brings, so it's still possible I'll change my mind.

A neat worn out storefront...

A month or so ago I saw one listed somewhere for $3800 and have seen a few in the mid $4000s. I don't think the low end of the used market will change much, but anyone with a babied body with a very low shutter count, the resale value will have just dropped somewhat. It's bound to happen eventually anyway. One question though is how much the M10 will cost? As has been discussed, if it's near $10K, resale value for average condition M9s should hold pretty steady, especially after new stock is exhausted. BTW, it's only a $500 rebate for the M9. $1000 for the M9P.
