Greetings to you friend...
Steve: Thanks, buddy!
We went out this morning into the desert near our home this morning to try out the X1 that got here yesterday.
Thankful my arm was long enough ...
More image and thoughts about the X1 are on our blog.
steve, matt - thanks! was my wife changing the water on her birthday flowers
Seeing some nice posts since I left the house this morning..
ace- a strong followup to your first post there
doing good work with that 50lux
MFA,Boston. M9 & 21 Lux
Steve (shtarka1) - I like the first one in your series - incorporates the person looking at the artwork well.
I've spent a good bit of the time at the Chicago Institute of Art waiting for folks to hit just the right pose in front of a particular work. Can't wait for my fast lenses to get back from Leica service to try some more.
It may be only 24 hrs with the X1 however I can tell that it won't take the place of either the M9 or the P45+. This is truly a companion/jeep camera.
absolutely great series - great light and processing
M8 2/28 - 2 images stitched

Wow, what an amazing shot! Love the angle and lighting

Matt, excellent series of shots! Love the contrast and composition.
Ok, so I'm ridiculously behind on commenting. Sorry folks.
Mike: nice set of images. I'm a fan of the M8, 35 Cron combo, and you've shown it at it's best.
baudolino: Excellent work. Thanks for sharing. I didn't even realize from the first one that the lake was frozen. Duh.
HenryFool: More nice shots. You are rocking that Canon f1.2!
Matt Grayson: I especially like your "happy accident". Nice.
aceshooter: Terrific shot for "first time with a RF", or for 1000th time. Love the b/w too. Priceless child. The color series rocks as well.
Jim: I see that with the Leica you can still find the "glow" I admire so much in your LF shots with the antique lenses. Very nice indeed.
Steve Gomes: Love the roses. Great bokeh in that one too. I enjoyed the second group of shots as well. (Loved the subway shot.) Hope you're on the mend.
Kristian (leicashot): Holy cow! Brilliant. BTW, your website is a treasure trove! Thanks for joining in here.
Matt: Great stuff from Ellicott City. Love your work with that 24 lux.
Don: Nice shots with the X1 (I like the SP). You should start posting some in the X1 thread. It gets far too little attention.
Steve: Cuz, those shots from the MFA are awesome. I love that place, and now I need to make a point of visiting when we're home in April. I also like that latest b/w. Great processing, and the patterns on the pants are awesome.
CEH: I agree with Steve's comment about the geometry, but I mostly love the moment you captured, the little girl with the ball.
f1,0: Beautiful pano.
Endre: No butts about it. That's a nice shot.
Great stuff everyone. Hope I haven't missed anyone. If I did, I loved your work too!
Charles & Lloyd, Thanks A Lot!
Few shots from my son's suprise birthday party over the weekend
28 Cron and M9
50 Lux Asph and M9

Charles, Wonderful IQ & Shots!
Lloyd, Steve ... Thank You
It just got cold enough for the smelt shacks to get set out on the Kennebec River. Smelting is a big winter past time here!
I was also very very fortunate (thanks to my M8) that the rabbi allowed me to shoot during a Bar Mitzvah that I was hired to do. Being non-Jewish, I usually have to stage shots as if the event was going on. He asked if I would make a lot of noise with the camera, I said, "Nope."
I took the liberty of using my 70-200 w/ the D3 occasionally, but didn't get any evil looks.
A few from my holiday in Victoria, Australia. M8u + Nocti f1.0
Very nice B&W shots Steve & Endre! Like the composition and tones on both of these!
Charles: Thank you, sir!
