. . . . . then again the M8.2 had the same effect on me and got the craving started for the M9.
After only a couple of short opportunities to shoot with the camera my first thoughts are that I love the FF vs the crop, the quieter shutter, and the output looks better.
I will have to wait for the new camera effect to wear off a bit. Still a little giddy just having it in my hands . . . . . I hope someone else understands this statement.
Dam GAS attacks . . . . .
. . . . . more will be revealed.
Rainy Sunday . . . . . start with a cup of Joe . . . . .
. . . . . then enjoy the view from the sidewalk table & chair . . . . .
Perhaps by the misses a old hat . . . . .
. . . . . a visit to the conservatory to get out of the rain, but the doors are closed . . . . .
. . . . . so wonder the streets to find a touch of color to shoot ....
M9 with the Voigtlander Nokton ASPH. 50mm f1.5
Dan, Booming Color! First & Last For Me! Excellent!
Great shots Dan - the last one is my favorite as well. Love the contrast between the green on the tree and the purple umbrella
Yeah, those Venice shots are just inspiring, love the cultural/architectural implications of them.
ahh, the price of gas in these days... M9 CV 50 1.1 stopped down to 5.7 @ 160 iso
Texas Wind Chime 50 Nokton @ 1.4 (Actually they have a lug wrech you can ring this thing with, quite a bell!

By f3.4, the Nokton 50mm is RAZOR sharp on M9 Maybe the best 1K a person could spend and own an M9. This is wow sharp.
50mm @ f2
M8 Elmarit 28mm ver3
Perspectives, I had people in the way, so made something creative out of it.
Dan, very nice shots! Excellent colour in the last shot
Luka, excellent shots.
Doug, love the shot of the old car
rizz, nice shots.
Steve beautiful shots of the flowers.
The stacked canoes really is eye catching with the symmetrical shapes, yet askew, and I love the one green leaf on top, very pleasing photograph.
The last shot of the guard at his post in black and white is wonderful. His face looks like it was carved from stone. A photograph with lots of lines, squares, circles, curves, cones, shapes and patterns, I really like this photogaraph!
Great stuff, Luka and Dan. I see that the rain isn't stopping you one bit, Dan. Luka, your images have a defined crispness that really shows off what the Zeiss glass can do..Great stuff...amazingly seen!
As usual, thanks to you all (Lloyd, Steve, Matt, Endre, Mike, Charles, Ryan, Doughl,Joe, Osman, et al.) for your kind words on my photos...
I always have found this to be the most accepting and encouraging place to share photos, and love seeing all of the talent regularly on display....also great to see the diversity of shooting and the spectrum of what can be accomplished with the M system!
Here are 2 more, reprocessed images, from my Indian journey....
And a couple of new discoveries from the bargain bin
Luka,Doug,Dan,Rizz,Steve & Ash...Superb Work!
Dan, very nice shot with 50 Nokton
Ashwin, superb shots! My favourites are #1 and 2.
Some shot in Bangkok with the 75 Lux and M9
Thanks Charles, Steve
I did barely manage to get the whole truck in one shot. I was a little surprised when I got home and only had this shot of entire truck. Obviously, framing issues I guess... Like to have had a little deeper front under bumper. Looks like someone else took a few shots at this old girl!
Doug, looks like the Nokton is treating you well! Great shots!
Luka - I love the 'sardines' Great work
Ashwin - Amazing how you keep pulling stuff out of the 'bin' . Such excellent work you post each time. In particular, I really like everything about #1 & #2. Great PP
Dan - Its great to see you putting that M9 to good use. I am really liking the colors in particular that you are getting.
Charles - Excellent 75 Lux pics. The rendering of that lens is so smooth. The isolation makes it a perfect portrait lens
Thanks for the comments all from the weekend. Here are a few more I took....baby boy on the way . I took my Nikon D700 plus a few pieces of glass and the Leica with nothing but a 35 Cron and 50 Lux...the Nikon hardly came out . Actually, it only came out for 100mm and longer shots that the Leica COULDN'T do (don't have my Tele yet)
Congratulations!!! Beautiful portrait shots. The expressions and happiness is bubbling over
Doug, very nice shot
my beloved singapore. m8.2/28mm 'cron. no processing.
Great shots from the weekend everyone!
Dan, congrats on the M9, I'm sure you enjoy it very much!
Second round edits of Boston Chinese New Year from last month.
Thanks for looking!

A few odds and ends from this weekend, M8/50mm 'cron:
I regret not getting the 'Change' sign in the background more in focus, but hopefully you get the idea:
GMB, lovely Venice shots. Would love to visit one day.

Joe, excellent street series. Great work with the PP!!
Blimey, nice shots of Singapore!
