    I am assuming it is good to go without.
    Absolutely - no filters required - definitely - there is a faint possibility of a magenta tinge in some artificial fabrics, but if it matters it's very straightforward to fix by dropping the magenta slightly (it's even less of an issue in C1).

    Re: The All New More and More Fun w/M9 Images

    HI Mike
    Lovely shots -
    I quite agree about the 50 lux asph. That, together with my 28 'cron are getting most of the action with the M9 at the moment (with the WATE and the lovely little 90 elmarit following close behind).

    Just this guy you know

    Thumbs up Re: The All New More and More Fun w/M8 Images

    [QUOTE=Lloyd;140451]Out walking before work again this morning. Colors just starting to change here (although these would make you think it's general, these were just a couple of trees that had changed, while most still have not). Couldn't resist the light on the water in the background.

    CV 90/3.5 APO Lanthar @ 5.6 in both shots:

    Lloyd, thanks again for making our day. Indian Summer at his best.
    (and a want to have a Lanthar in my head)
    Enjoy living, live to enjoy

    Gorgeous stuff, Mike. Easy to love that combo, for sure.

    I'll have my M9 this afternoon - in time to use for a job on Saturday. Thank you David Farkus!
    It won't be gritty, probably, but I'll see what I can do.

    Neil, This may be more along the lines of what you're looking for... not everything he shows was taken with the M9 (even his stuff, although he gives you that impression in the video), but there is enough there to get a sense of how it works for street or reportage. http://www.vimeo.com/6497905

    I was told mine would be here on Oct 1st, but I guess I didn't make the cut. Bummer.

    Fun to see these images, esp. compared with the 27mp d300s.

    Re: The All New More and More Fun w/M9 Images

    borrowed a M9 for two days from YFO (camera dealer) to shoot here in Sweden. did two jobs and shoot a lot at home (the kids) and at the studio/office where I hang during the day.

    here is a shot from a coffee cupping (tasting) we had last night!



    I'll post a few more these coming days but you can see more from our cupping at my coffee flickr page at www.flickr.com/coffeeruas

    All the shots were done with my 35mm Summilux at F2.

    .
    Did you send in just the body or lenses as well?

    I ended up having to send my M8 and all my lenses as well to get them to focus properly. Am worried now that if I get an M9, I'll have to go through that all again.

    Re: The All New More and More Fun w/M9 Images

    I sent the 50 lux asph and the 90 cron along with the body, as those are the most demanding lenses I have (in terms of focus accuracy for narrow DOF). He got those two spot-on (adjusting the M9 and the 50 lux - the 90 cron did not need adjustment), and now my other lenses are all good as well.

    Thanks Mike. Did you ever have to get the lenses/body adjusted with your M8?

    Also, fast turnaround! When I sent mine to Leica they had it for almost 2 months!

    Re: The All New More and More Fun w/M9 Images

    Never got either of my M8s adjusted. I just lived with a couple of my lenses being a bit inaccurate (75 lux and 90 cron). But this time around, I decided I wanted perfect focus, since I'll generally be closer to the subject (FF vs 1.3 crop) and have thinner DOF.

    I recommend DAG for focus / rangefinder adjustments. They are faster than Leica service, do a great job, and for a very reasonable price. He's got all the right equipment to do these adjustments.

    Quite right Kurt, and you've been to Norway several times I believe?

    I like this lens on my M8, and the Leica 21mm finder is excellent for framing.
    Here are two more.

    Lovely shots Arne, and great use of the 15mm!

    Here are a few from last weekend in Iceland. Fall is most certainly here, and winter is not far behind. I edited these on my desktop with an Eizo, and they look quite bland on my laptop as I am posting now...moral of the story...get yourself an Eizo! I wish they made laptop displays...







    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!

    f1.0, Very nice portraits. The photo of Mila has wonderful lighting.

    Please tell me about the 65 f/3.5 and how does that work on the Visoflex 3 for portraits?

    These are wonderful, my friend. Certainly nothing wrong with the quality of that image shot at 1250 ISO. And the shot of Mila is a truly beautiful portrait. What amazing light as well.

    Mike I think some of your images look like the M9 has better color saturation ..reminds me of the rendering of slide film ..especially the blue sky. This is what I am seeing when I shoot the m9 and the M8 together. Great stuff.

    Thanks Roger and Lloyd.

    Went for a walk at the beach house at Pajaro Dunes, and took some shots of the interesting architecture in the area. The light was pretty harsh, but still managed to get good colors from the M9...
