    Two bottles of Vintage Port from 1815 (M9 + Cron 28/2 asph)

    Eat your hearts out...

    1/45s @f3.4, ISO 2500, handheld.
    Estimated current price for each bottle, about 5x the price of a 50/0.95.

    Jose,
    What quinta are these from? Unfortunately, I don't think port from 1815 will actually be any good. It's not like Madeira.

    Nice shot.

    Thanks, Jono. I live in Porto, and so going to the Port wine cellars is a short stroll for me... they make wonderful photographic themes, you must come here sometime. Itīs a theme that I plan to explore appropriately, now that my 50/0.95 is on its way (you always set the most dangerous examples!).

    Brad, these bottles are from "Ferreira", one of the best Port wine brands. I never tried this wine, of course, but I did try 100 years old vintage Port and it was superb, absolutely superb.

    Maybe we can organize a Leica Forum meeting in porto, and I will supply - or find ways to supply - the Port?...

    Jose, that sounds wonderful. I have been to Porto and the Duoro twice for a week each time and learned a great deal from my gracious hosts. I too have been lucky enough to enjoy port from 1900 and it was heaven. I'll try post a link to some of my photos. The cellar at Niepoort is something to behold!

    Yes Brad, absolutely! By the way, if you consider a future trip to Porto, please let me know and I would be delighted to meet you or any other Leica forum members. And if you guys really behave... I may even get you a tour of the nearby Leica factory...

    I'd love to go to Porto - I think that Jerez is about as close as I've been.
    As for setting an example with the 50/0.95, I'd love to, but there are some things which might be a step to far (and that's one of them!).

    Thanks, Jono. By the way, I absolutely fell in love with your M9 book. Sincere congratulations on an exceptional book with exceptional photographs that never cease to inspire me. Thanks.

    I worked for Ferreira Wines in Lisbon during a couple of months and I sold many Port bottles but none of these. Hehe.

    I'd prefer the 50/0.95 instead of the wine as I don't like it. (I think you'd say that this is a sin...)

    I would never say that, Lazzaros... and I would prefer the lens too, by the way!

    Thank you Jose, I'm most flattered. As for the port, a whole bottle would generate a terrible headache, so I'd settle for half a bottle, a noctilux and a 35mm lux into the bargain!

    I have to say that I don't like any wine at all. No beer too. I'm a Coca-Cola addicted so.

    Brad,

    You are confusing drinking port with buying and selling port (bragging rights included).
