    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    I put my name on a list in May as I seem to only see in black and white these days and have been M-less for two years.

    My Monochrom arrived at my dealer two weeks ago ... the problem is that I won't be back in the US for two more weeks until mid December. The good news ... the camera is sitting in it's box waiting for my arrival. The bad news ... I've discovered a new feeling that is far more tortuous than waiting on a slow moving Leica list.

    So for a few more weeks, I'll continue to live vicariously through the monochrome eyes of you guys here.

    Btw, I hope you're all proud of yourselves because I fell hopelessly in love with this camera when I tried it and also saw the great work here too. I ordered one a few months ago with the plan of it being my ONLY M for the future. My digital MP so to speak. Thanks. My wallet hates you all
    +1! Superbly stated and truly reflects my feelings too! The images are truly inspiring and it's a pleasure when time permits, to sit back and view the images. To think, there isn't even a museum fee

    Kurt, that is amazing news. I'm so happy for you that you will be shooting with the Monochrom in a few weeks. I'm really looking forward to the results and I guess you will find amazing new possibilities. It will be interesting if it will have influence in the results. Can't wait to hear your story.

    Btw which lens will be sticked to Henry?

    Cheers,
    Pete

    This forum is actually a great resource to test fly images. It's my editor.

    A few with the 18mm Super Elmar, which is indeed super.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Finally, a different lens. My Dual Range Summicron (optical cell is identical to the Rigid Summicron) has become my best friend - it mates wonderfully with the MM. So I asked myself which 35mm lens is most like it? It's not any of the pre-asph Summicrons - v. IV doesn't quite stand up to the MM's resolution which probably applies to the earlier versions. I spent a bit of time with Irwin Puts' Leica Compendium, an essential tool for anyone who fancies him/herself a Leica nut. The long-running 35mm Summicron Asph has very similar MTF curves and narrative but based on personal experience supresses flair better than the DR. I've owned this lens but sold it when I got my first 35mm Lux. So . . . I found a nice looking sample on ebay and bought it. First sample below. (a flair and contrast torture test).

    Fantastic ultra wide shots Woody ^^

    Here's one preparing for the Christmas season, no snow in this part of the world, so they gotta paint them white:

    I hope I'm not overdoing it!

    I've been posting a lot of images. My excuse is that I've had this MM only a couple of weeks and it's a very enjoyable camera!

    The theme here is RAIN. All with the 50mm Cron-M and yellow filter.

    ISO 800. Grim light and a buffeting wind.




    ISO 5000. A man lives in this car, a 1955 or 56 Mercury Montclair, and has for years. It is not like he lays down to sleep in the back seat. He seems to always sit behind the wheel, hemmed in by garbage bags.





    ISO 3200

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    @Pete At one time, I had a nice selection of M lenses. Unfortunately, I sold them for some other gear. So it'll be back to the basics with a 35lux or 50lux. From there I can see what looks best and add a lens. It's probably counter-intuitive, but several years removed from the M experience, I realize that I'm most comfortable and creative with a limited set of choices. From what I've seen from the Monochrom images of others here, it looks like the images can be pushed around quite a bit. I'm looking forward to getting a chance to work with them as it appears that one can create a myriad of possibilities via post processing to fit one's personal taste.

    @Dave Welcome to getdpi. If you choose to hang out here, you'll find that it's a good group of people. From your image, it looks like you might be in the Philippines. If so, where? I'm currently hanging out in Manila and am always happy to try to cross paths with others here who enjoy shooting (especially those shooting with Leica gear.)

    Kurt, thanks for the warm welcome. It's certainly a nice community here, I can already feel it. If you're still here by early next year, I'll be off to Manila. I'm down here in the Visayas region, Leyte to be exact. If you happen to have an itinerary here or somewhere near, please let me know. Looking forward...

    For the meantime, I'll share some street foods taken last night while waiting for my takeout dinner:

    "Puso" (a.k.a. hanging rice, wrapped with coconut leaves)


    "BBQ at night"

    I highly recommend the 35 chron asph with the MM - it's my one lens choice for the moment.

    Sunset on a rainy day

    This was taken with the 50mm Cron-M, yellow filter, ISO 5000 near sunset of a dimly lit day. Initially there was much forum discussion of the grayness of MM files. This file was so lusciously gray that I didn't know what to do with it. Finally settled on brightening it a bit while holding back the highlights on the plastic bag. For anyone interested, a version of the original flat file is in my gallery.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    @Ed - definitely I'm loving the extended range of the gray tones of the MM. Your photo shows the lattitude.

    @JPL - I can feel the coldness from down here the tropics.

    Here are some taken the other night, still learning the ropes:

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    @Dave It looks as if I'll be hanging around Manila for the next couple of years.

    @ Woody Thanks for the recommendation. I'll definitely take a look at all of the images that I see with crons (particularly the 35 ASPH) in the next several weeks. From what I've seen, it looks like a great pairing. The summarit lenses on the S have a look that is similar to a summicron. For a consistent look across both systems, it would definitely be worth picking one up.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    I continue to develop this theme. MM + 18mm super elmar. Perhaps it should be called the "super duper elmar". Or the "way over the top elmar". Or the "go ahead, make my day elmar". anyway, a special lens.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    My MM's still in NJ, so, I dug back a bit.

    MM; 50mm f/1.4; 1/60s; ISO 6400


    I love the diversity of style, technique and subject in this thread.

    The most prominent in the frame is the activity that is going on. Even after you point it out, squirly or not bokeh isn't noticeable.

    Splendid!

    Nice industrial silhouette shot.

    And I agree with what you said Matt!

    All my Nikons are in the drybox lately. The MM is taking over and it seems to keep on going and going... I hope it's for the better.

    I've praised elsewhere the DR Summicron; others here have had similar experience with the Rigid Summicron which is the same lens cell. The classic Leica look from the 50s and 60s - the surprise is that it stands up to the rigors of MM resolution.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Woody, Thanks!

    My query was more towards pictorial aspects and nothing to do with the resolution of the sensor, given the nature of the output (if that makes any sense).

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Thanks but none of those involve any simple lenses at all. Summicrons already are complex Gauss or modified Gauss (so are the Japanese equivalents).

    The Elmars and Hektors (there are exceptions to the Hektors) are much simpler 4 element lenses and there is even a triplet Elmar (90/4).

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Sorry, I guess I didn't understand the question. I have seem some nice work done wiht the Summar lens, but have no experience with Elmars or Hektors on this body. RFF may be a good place to check, as there's an active MM photo thread there. Good luck, Vivek.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Well, the wheels are already in motion in that my name is on a dealer's list for the MM.

    I hope, soon, I can play with one and check it out for myself, Ashwin.

    Fun + Diversity of Style

    The MM has made me enjoy going out at twilight. say the hour before and hour after sunset. Last night I had to run to Calumet because a memory card failed (first time ever for me, having only shot digital for two years). Actually I made two trips because the first time they put a CF instead of an SD card in the bag. Driving home from the second visit, I grabbed this shot at ISO 5000 through the windshield. 50mm Cron-M

    Okay, doesn't do justice to that street, but poking around in the frame I found a crop spooky enough to be a mezzotint in a scary kid's book.
