    Beautiful subject. And both shots show the versatility of the 35! The one lens.

    Dave, I think that's sadness, not just fun, with the MM. A touching portrait.

    I just met my Monochrom yesterday, and from its first couple of shots I've concluded it has a sense of humor.

    Quite right Kirk, yes while it's been a pleasure to shoot with the Monochrom, most of the subjects I'm shooting the last few months emotes the opposite. There have been times that it was kind of difficult to just go on and shoot.

    Looks like you're gonna have fun with the Monochrom, good start!

    Another of the many wedding parties having their photos taken on our street corner. This party had at least three photographers, so that while I was photographing them having their photographs taken, one of their photographers was shooting me doing so.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    On a recent trip to New York, I arranged to rent a Monochrome M and 35mm Summicron lens.

    This was my first time using a Leica, so I was keen to take the rental path to see if I enjoyed the RF experience. Might as well dive in with the Monochrome version while Iím at it right? Also, Iíd never shot street-style before, but hey, ďWhen in Rome"...

    What I liked: Clean files that handle editing well. Gorgeous range of tones. RF focusing was a better experience than I anticipated - although I still missed plenty of shots as a newbie. Manual setting options worked well for street. Unobtrusive and quiet, people hardly glanced as I took their photo from short range. Well thought out menu system. Remarkably small lens compared to my Nikon and Hassy gear. Ability to use auto-ISO with manual shutter and aperture settings was nice. Good file sizes (the Goldilocks zone of not being too big nor too small IMO)

    What I disliked: LCD screen was pretty poor. Write speeds were very slow. It locked up once and I had to remove battery to re-boot. Without a grip itís not that easy to hold for extended periods. Itís expensive.

    Would I buy one? Well maybe a new Monochrome is in the pipeline based on the current CMOS M. If it has faster handling and with a better LCD, Iíd be keen. Then again maybe current models will prove cheaper on the second hand market when a new model arrives - but who knows, as Iím sure debate will rage on how any new CMOS monochrome draws vs the current CCD.

    Interestingly I planned to use this rental to test the Leica M-series camera - in particular the manual focus. If I didnít like it I had made my mind up to buy the T instead. While Iíve checked out the T in-store (lovely camera), Iím not a buyer as the larger camera has won a place in my heart and mind - and that is likely a good note to end this post on

    Jay, for improving the grip, try a Match Technical Thumbs Up or a Thumbie.

    Also when working really fast I use the DoF scales a lot and after some practice you get pretty good with them.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    nice work, in my town, too! every now and then i shoot the 28 cron and that baby sees a lot of FOV. but my go-to is the 75 cron for street

    i use the thumbs up, couldn't be without it. also the Luigi baseplate, which has fold up doors for the battery and card

    biggest problem i have is remembering which frame lines to use!

    Camera inspection, free estimates:

    Camera Inspection by thompsonkirk, on Flickr

    First day of printing MM files. I think Im finally getting some 'Walker Evans tones.' This isn't cropped – it's two horizontal files stitched together. 50 p-a Lux.
