    David E. Thanks for the encouragement. You should never leave Los Vegas - your style resonates with Los Vegas - your images are sensational.

    David: Lovely! I am awed by how you captured the geometry of the images that you saw. Lovely!

    Kurt: More gentle magic from everyday life from you. I love it!

    Endre: Love the escalator shot. The figure in the distance is one of my favorite compositional themes, and you nailed this one. Great!

    Matt: I love these images. It's funny that this is the scenery that I breeze by 300 times yearly on my bike ride home, and yet, you find a new and wonderful way to present the city scape! I will be seeing my bike ride home in new ways. Love the clouds and toning in these captures.

Mostly I shot at ISO 160, but did bump it up as high as ISO 1000 occasionally to see how much grain would show up (not very much).

    I sprang for the 18mm Leica viewfinder last year when I purchased the lens. It wasn't cheap, and there are less expensive alternatives. I could get by on the M8 without using a viewfinder, but with the M9, you really need it. Since I used the built-in viewfinder only for focusing and checking the meter, I kept a Leica 1.25x magnifier on all the time to help me focus.
    David: Thanks for the information. Your technique certainly works based on the fine results.

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    Just got my M9 yesterday and couldn't wait to try it out! I've never had a leica before so all this is new to me. This is one of my first tries...An old mandolin in my house. Not a great image and not what I usually photograph but have so enjoyed this forum I wanted to post an image. Will have more to post when I'm more proficient!

    I never shoot high iso but did with this one. 35mm Cron ASPH. Shot at f2 with iso of 1250 handheld at 1/30 sec. Eleanor

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    Here's 2 from my first, quick, outing with a newly acquired 50 summicron DR with eyes. I read it was safe to use on the M9 only at focus distance 3 meters or less. I got the lens mostly for film use, but also to have a semi-macro ability at 50mm on the M9. I'm very excited at the possibilities, and this really is a heck of a good lens. These two were at close to the nearest focus distance of 19 inches. best....Peter

    Cheers, Matt.

    Hey everyone. I put up my DR shots having not been by this tread for a while. Man, so many freaking great images, just breathtaking work, really by everyone! Sorry for the lazy way out of commenting one to one, but trust me, I really mean that the work is all inspiring and beautiful. best...Peter

    Sorry you have to put up with that off your deck. What vintage is that 90 Elmarit? I have an older one, with I like stopped down, but honestly, at least on my M8, I'm underwhelmed by its performance wide open. I like my 90 Hexanon better at 2.8.

    More Sonnar funtimes, these at f/1.5. I think I should ask if I can return the aperture blades for a partial refund, as this lens is gonna live its life wide open. On M9.

    Daniel, the Voightlander lenses are certainly sharp wide open and such a great bargain.

    Endre, now we're talking. Reminds me of the leg lamp scene from an American movie that gets replayed over and over at Christmas time each year here in the states ... A Christmas Story. I don't know if you've seen it, but here's a youtube clip of the leg lamp scene:

    Thanks Osman

    Lovely leg Endre!

    Kurt: this is a Zeiss ZM C-Sonnar, certainly not as sharp as most 50's wide open, but quite pretty none the less and sharp enough for print/web.

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    Thanks for your comments Lloyd and Matt. Think the Leica will offer me an opportunity to do some shooting that I would otherwise have not done...such as handheld low light higher iso work, etc. It will be an interesting journey! The lenses are very very sharp so I will have to modify my usual sharpening technique in Capture One. Eleanor

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    Kurt - thank you for the complements and yes you'll be seeing some southwest images here shortly (going to Monument Valley and Moab shortly)

    Kurt - I love the image of the bride!

    Matt - Great images from the woods!

    Jeff - You're getting much better color in your wildflowers than we have here. Then again we might get snow at the 4000 foot level today.

    Ashwin - the images from the archives bring back so happy memories. I like the overall effect also reminds me of Life or Look.

    Kurt (again) - Saturday night images are ... stunning. Again jumps right out of the pages of Time, Life or Look. Love the black and white where the blacks are really black and the whites are really white.

    Steve & Alnitak - thank you for the complement and comments, I wanted to show Casa Grande Ruins in a different "light".

    Endre and Lloyd - Thanks you both. That images was from the Desert Museum.

    Underconcept - Like it I must. You have brought the force out that was in you. Much great thing I sense.

    Matt - Just call me Indiana Don!

    Lastly back to Kurt - Hell No! You can have my Cambo/P45+ if you can pry it from my dead cold fingers. As much as I like the M9 and what I'm getting it still is a complementary camera to the P45+.

    I've forgotten to thank or complement others and for that I'm sorry. This thread as others have already pointed out is a wonderful place to visit not only for the great images but the insightfulness of the information I've gotten.

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    Eleanor - Congratulations on the camera. I've found myself shooting images that I wouldn't normally do telling myself at the same time it's all for testing.

    I've found that this camera is great for low light places (such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium).

    Okay I'll be off the grid so to speak for the next couple days. See ya all when I return.

    Mine's much older, and has the separate hood. Probably just the lens, as I've seen some good shots wide open from others. I do know that Elmarit is amazingly sharp stopped down.

    Beautiful image on the Stiliaguamish, BTW. Man, that 24 lux is sharp, isn't it?

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    Thanks Endre, Lloyd, Matt, Steve, Woody, and Ashwin

    Endre, very nice escalator shot. That Elmarit 28 is sharp as a tack.

    Woody, wonderful shots of Grand Central Terminal. Looks like a definite stop on my next visit to NYC.

    Boymerang, really like the warm and intimate quality of your recording session shots.

    Eleanor, welcome to the Leica side of the fence. The high ISO looks fine with that shot. Combined with the sepia, it enhances the timeless look.

    Innerimager, super shots. Sometimes I set the focus as tight as possible, and then move the camera until the focus fits. Looks like that may be what you did with those two shots. Terrific results.

    Matt, Im really loving your natural habitat shots. Very inspiring.

    Thrice, nice office portraits. Looks like you have a couple of willing participants.

    Rayyan, excellent photo quiet, meditative, carefully composed, yet richly colorful.

    Oh, no, it's more of those 18mm shots from Vegas.

    I never shoot high iso but did with this one. 35mm Cron ASPH. Shot at f2 with iso of 1250 handheld at 1/30 sec. Eleanor

    Eleanor, welcome aboard! Love the tone & shallow dof! Great shot! Enjoy the new M9!!!

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    Playing around with Lightroom 3 Beta 2.

    These are from a local art museum. Nothing special, photography-wise, I was just testing the light for a wedding I'll be shooting here next month, as they do not allow flash.

    M8, 35 Cron ASPH, ISO 1250:

    This is right out of the camera:


    100% Crop; Lots of noise is evident:


    Same crop; 10 seconds in LR3 Beta 2. Quick adjustment of the Luminance and Color Noise sliders (I realize it's a little soft. I did not apply any sharpening after the noise reduction):

    Thanks Steve. Now here is the same image "processed" in C1 (version 4.8):

    Straight out of the camera, but with the Leica M8 profile applied in C1:


    100% Crop, no noise reduction:

    Same 100% crop, with Luminance and Color Noise reduction (to the max):
