Phil & Joe,
This is actually an M9P-upgrade. I asked Leica Singapore to retain the black dial from my black M9 in the silver upgrade that i requested. I would have wanted to retain the black switch and shutter button but the told me that it was attached to the top plate and entails more work because of some electronic contacts.

Nothing particularly special about this shot, but I'm just amazed by the clarity of the ZM 25 2.8. Really a quality lens.

Ron, the top left is a little blown, it's the nature of the fact I really had the light settings closer to the mid to lower frame of the camera. It's possible, a image expert could make it some better. But I'm not sure exactly what else to do with it, except maybe selectivly turn the brightness down on that area, I might could do that. The right at the trees will be a little darker, but maybe I went to far with it. thanks for your opinion on it.

While waiting at the doctor's office lobby watching "Wreck It Ralph" at the overhead monitor.

M9 + 35FLE@f1.4...here you can see the crappy halo-effect on the bokeh highlights on the FLE...

this lighting is VERY challenging to meter with the limited sensor of the M9...100 points for you! you were able to capture quite a range here...did you have to pull up shadows in post?

That is 35cron V1. with Leica polarizer hood. The hood finish match the goggle and M9's skin finish. So it looks cool I used it a lot in China trip.

Both shots used manual exposure. I use manual a lot with M9 based on experience and sunny 16. Both face exposure rely on the light bounce from ground so I didn't do a lot shadow lifting. Even M9's sensor DR is not that great, it seems behave pretty good on shadow lifting if needed. so not blow highlight is still my priority with M9.

thanks..

yeah, I rely purely on manual metering on the M9, too...because its auto-exposure is somewhat retarded; it's next to unusable especially in this high-contrast lighting because with the M9 and its wonderfully-limited dynamic range, once the highlights are clipped in your histogram, it's pretty much gone.

Sorry, I've been bad with all text and no images lately. But have been enjoying the great work here and somewhat getting caught up in Joe's GAS, becoming a bit of an accomplice.

Anyway, came across this link over at RFF for a 3D printed square (Leica-like) hood for the ZM50/2:
http://www.shapeways.com/model/764153/zeiss-50-2-planar-compact-hood.html?li=productBox-search

He also has some other options, such as for the CV35/40 f/1.4s, which will also fit both ZM35s:

Thanks for the "likes" everyone!

Ron, don't blame me! You got a superb deal last night! If only I saw that one first. IT wasn't even listed in the morning when I checked. Can't wait to see samples from your new acquisition.

Those hoods look cool but I kind of prefer the round ones, just for a more classic looking kit.

Today I payed my mint, black paint M9P which still has plenty time of its warranty left. I can't wait to get her! Since I am new to Leica and just familiar to the MP (just made a couple test shots with a rented M9) I am looking so much forward to shoot with those fantastic little lenses on my own digital M. Hopefully I am able to contribute in a couple of days some pics to this fantastic thread!

Just wanted to share my excitement!

joe88, thanks!

My lenses are:
- Summicron 2/28 ASPH.
- Summilux 1.4/50 ASPH.
- APO Summicron 2/90 ASPH.

But still working on the family

In the next couple of weeks I would like to get one more lens, deciding between the 135/3.4 APO, Summilux 21/1.4 or the Super Elmar 21/3.4.

Quite different lenses...I know!

The 135/3.4 I want because I like a lot to hike in the Alps and love to shoot on the summits where I can pic other summits in dusk or dawn.

The 21/1.4 I want because I was shooting with Nikon in the night alpine sights including the stars. I always used the 14-24/2.8 with f2.8 and ISO's up to 3200 with shutter speeds up to 30 sec.. With the M9P I am almost certain that I don't want to go higher then ISO 800. With a f1.4 it would be possible to realize a setting like with the Nikon. I don't want a longer shutter speed because I would like to avoid star trails. But I am a bit afraid of the purple and green color fringing with trees and sky or other high contrast scenes doing the day. Btw. I would love to have a DNG file with fringing to play with! Is there someone who can help me out?

The 21/3.4 I want because it is a perfect lens but with f3.4 and ISO 800 I would always get star trails

decisions, decisions...decisions

Yes I'd be afraid of the CA when dealing with the 21/1.4 -- though I don't do any astrophotography; does (that kind of) CA affect stars much?

P.S. the 2/28 should cover you fairly well for that sort of stuff already?

For the price of the 21/1.4 you can buy an M240 (if you can find one) and shoot at the higher ISOs using the 21/3.4, which is definitely a sharper lens across the frame than the 21/1.4. Might also be worth trying the Voigtlander 21/1.8, which past f/4 is difficult to distinguish from the 21/3.4 other than perhaps somewhat lower micro contrast. It has less CA than the Lux but it also has 'normal' field curvature, so it's possible the corners will be somewhat soft wide open at infinity. The 21 Lux also has some strange field curvature-like behavior, but more in the mid zone areas, especially when stopped down between 2.8-4. The other problem will be coma smearing towards the edges. In my 4-way 21mm lens review, I shot a dusk cityscape scene to check point light source characteristics and all of the lenses require until around f/4 to greatly reduce coma. Of course, for the 21/3.4, that's only a half-stop. There are high-rez Jpeg file download links towards the bottom of the page.

I really like the 21 Lux but its images are less technically perfect than the 21 SEM. For anything like landscape (urban or natural) I will invariably go to the SEM, especially if I want to place the subject off center at an aperture at or wider than f/5.6, unless I want shallow depth of field, or it's dark and I'm not using a tripod. For my uses, the Lux really is unique for near distance people photography, such as available light candids during events.
