I"ve been a lurker on this forum for several years now. Recently I saw a B&W presentation by John Thawley ( a pro) about where the blues originated. He uses Leica gear. It was like an epiphany. My darkroom equipment 50+ years ago was all B&W. After much though, I have decided to buy a Leica system and pursue B&W again. Not an easy decision as it will cost me $28K plus, but I now remember what I like the most.
Here is my thoughts:
Leica Monochrom M camera and spare battery
Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2.0 Lens
Leica 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M ASPH
Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux-M
A longer focal length later.
I appreciate the Leica GetDPI.com forum and respect the members. You people are the best. I would appreciate anyone's view on my choices and moving ahead with my quest to return to my B&W roots. For me its all about the image and not the money. Your assistance would be greatly appreicated.
Thank you in advance
An recommendation for dealers would be appreciated too.
