Have not been posted here for a while. So many good images!

In the films days, I was very fond of Leica Elmar-M lens. In good lighting conditions, at f5.6 and f8, the lens renders beautifully. But I have not used it on digital Ms until this morning. I took the M9 with a Elmar-M 50 for s morning walk. Most of the images were taken at f5.6.

I'm finding all my camera bags are way too big for the M setup. Even My Domke F2 feels massive with my one camera and two lenses.

A few with the M9 and Noct, all wide open:

Look at the camera bag thread on the front page. There are some good suggestions in there (even though the thread is for MFT).

Thank you airfrog

Your photo of the MM reminds me how small this camera is. I haven't shot with anything but rangefinders for over a year, and sometimes I feel the M9 is too big

Nice shots by the way, especially the first one.

Ryan, nice shots with the Noctilux.

Thanks. I'm hooked. Just trying to figure out how to switch completely over to Leica in the next few years.

Agree; good stuff Ryan...

A lot of you already know I was testing the 50 APO for a weekend. I'll probably be testing it again, as soon as I have some free time. Hopefully over a nice weekend.

I wanted to mention something I was told while badgering my contact about when the APO will be ready for sale (thinking about buying one)... Apparently the 50APO is going to be delayed due to manufacturing issues. I was told the lenses thus far haven't been up to MTF chart specs. The problem they're having is sharpness, center as well as corners. Now the copy I tested was plenty sharp, but I was told that it'll be even sharper in final production. And it will not have a negative impact on the bokeh.

So this is pretty exciting news (if it's accurate), and I look forward to getting my hands on an actual production model, since as I said, I already thought the 50APO prototype was plenty sharp, but would love to see it "improved". Now I'm not really one for rumors, but figured I'd share this bit of info for those of us interested in the 50APO.

With that said, I'm seriously thinking about switching my setup to an M10 and 50APO and just using one lens for a long while (will keep the 28though, everything else has to go!).
I was actually toying with the idea of doing that with the Noctilux, but find it's a bit big for a one lens setup. I've been using just 50mm a lot (even for work, with my Nikons) to try and see if I could get away with one lens for all situations (it's quite a challenge at work, but the Leica is for playtime, and I will also have the 28cron to help out).

Anyway, no Leica images today, been to busy with work

If you keep the 28 (presumably Cron) as part of your 1-lens kit, I think you should keep the APO 90 Cron as well

That's very interesting news. Thanks for sharing. How did you get your hands on an 50APO to try it out over an entire weekend? Did you compare the 50 APO with the 50 Lux?

... With that attitude, I should keep all those other lenses as well Funny how you caught that.
Yes, the 28 summicron will most likely be staying.


seekuh - I mentioned it before. Didn't really do a comparison, or any real tests. I just shot with it, to see if I'd like it more then the current 50cron, or the 50lux. And I did... But the price is high, and you only get an f/2 lens. I'll try to take a lot more shots with it, when I have a chance to shoot with it again.

Hilmar, I like #1 &2 from your set. Nice color and detail.
Andy, what happen to your M9? The first looks great, I miss that sonnar look.
Airfrog, nice shots from MM, I especially like the motorcycle in this pg.
Ocean, nice set from classic lens.
Ryan, Nice photes from 0.95. My favorite is your son (I guess) by window.
Edward, Nice shots around street. My favorite is ‘best Asian Shabu’, but I might crop out the left side wall

Adam, Thanks for sharing the info, I doubt I can buy this 50AA, though this might be the one I want most out of whole Leica M lens line. But I am not sure how I will be benefit from its almost perfect performance, I only shoot landscape once in a while for myself most Leica lens is decent after f5.6, and I keep asking myself how sharp is sharp enough? Have to agree this lens is very tempting, with new M240’s better ISO, 24M sensor, f2 and rangefinder company each other well, this is ‘THE prime’ lens. I might not be able to afford it, I will quietly watch its samples underwater
