Ron, love the play of light with the CN Tower and building. The 28Cron version is my favorite but I might be biased towards the 28Cron The photowalk set is also excellent. Actually I can learn a lot by just observing your post, always stellar.
Edward, is that guy riding a bike on a sidewalk? More excellent shots. #1, 2 & 6 are my favorites on the first set. The sets with the ZM35/2 are superb, especially the first 3 shots and the shots of kids on the bicycle(s). The demeanor of those people and kids is really touching and you captured them well.
Michael, very nice set with the ZM21. Last one is my favorite from the first set. I actually find the motion blur on #3 interesting, with the dark tones and movement making me wonder what's going on. The door shot on the last post is also excellent, resembling someone's eyes and mouth?
wstam, nice shots of the dragon and temple!
Now question for you guys, I use 'soft' setting, even with that, I feel I need push it quite hard to fire,(make the images easily get blur) however, if I use timer, a light touch is enough to fire the shutter. Do you guys have the same feeling? or my M9 need some service?
The sound is also loud compare NEX7 I had. What a pity. Leica's shutter is no longer discrete even compare to most P&S camera. I think HCB won't use Leica M on street.
I wonder M240 has any improvement on this?
I use discrete in quiet settings; shoot, bring the camera down, maybe inside a jacket or camera bag to damp the shutter re cock, else I use the normal shooting mode mostly. Never tried the soft mode. I was equally disappointed with my NEX7 shutter sound, still too loud. Hope the M240 is much quieter. You might want to check out the Sony RX1, its even quieter than a film M and it doesn't give up much in terms of IQ to the M9, except maybe the lack of RF focusing and discrete distance scale for zone focusing. If Sony could implement a snap focus function or a memory setting for manual focus on the RX1 (similar to the Ricoh GR), I'm prepared to ditch my M9 for street shooting since I use the 35FL most often.. but the Monochrom, that's a different story
