    Fish-Eye fun with M9

    I had bought an M42 to Leica M a couple of years ago, so that I could use my Zenitar 16mm f2.8 fish eye on my M8. However, with the crop factor it just looked like pictures taken with a not very good quality ordinary 16mm, which had quite a lot of barrel distortion. It is a lot more fun on the full frame M9. Here are a couple I took today in the melting snow and slush. DNG to JPEG B&W with yellow filter conversion in C1 V5 pro.

    Interesting shots I must ask is your left leg shorter than your right? just kidding!

    It wouldn't be so far out for someone to produce a rangefinder fisheye with an auxiliary finder...
