    ShiroKuro, Love number 3, that sun star is fantastic! The woman with the hose shooting water into the sun is just a fantastic capture! The sunlight and water work so well together, WOW!

I had wanted to try an M9 and Leica glass and since the event didn't allow "professional" or interchangable lens cameras without a press pass I knew there was no way my D7000 would make it through the gate. Luckily all 3 days when the security looked through my bag and saw the M9 they didn't give it a second thought while a woman in front of me with D90 got turned back.

    All of these pictures were taken at sunset or later. The person in the first photo is a friend and she really does have hair that purple, you usually just have to catch it in the right light to see it shine.





    I've been interested in the M because of the Leica glass mostly, but I do love the quality of the files that the M9 produced. I've owned several Nikon bodies from the D{1,2,3}00 and now the D7000. The lack of AA filter is quite noticeable and has me considering the removal on it on my D7000.

    The rangefinder experience was fun and suited me quite well. With my Nikons I usually operate differently than most people around me when it comes to shooting. I tend to take my time to compose the shot (waiting for the subject usually) instead of taking a series of pictures hoping one got the subject doing what I wanted. My last trip with the Nikon got me into wanting bokeh more and that ultimately led me to the Leica world.

    I like the M9 and think it has just the right mix of functionality and control for what most photographs need, but found it wasn't quite electronically rugged enough. I found it would spend long periods of time trying to write images to the SD card when the battery was around 25%. This led me to lose a couple images. The first day I thought the camera had frozen so I took the battery out and reinserted it. The second day I realized it was the battery being low. I reset the camera again because it was taking minutes and there were other things around me with the light changing at sunset that I wanted to capture. On the 3rd day I watched the battery and changed it before there was an issue.

    I've since bought a couple of lenses, the 35mm perar II and the 135mm tele-elmar. To hold me over through the upcoming product announcements, or M10 if the announcements aren't enough, I just got a Nex-5 with adapter so I can start using the glass collection I'm building.
    Terrific set of images. I really LOVE these two.

    No new trips, so I'm sifting through the images from my April Vegas visit. All with the 24 lux.

    Two shots of the balcony and signs at the Fashion Mall.

    And a shot of some flowers at the back entrance of Treasure Island. I was lucky that there was plenty of light.

    Thanks, Lloyd.

    I could easily get by with just an 18mm and 24mm. I was lazy on my last trip and didn't feel like changing lenses, since I was weaving in and out of the hotels.

    Re: The Very Latest & Greatest Fun w/Digital M Images

    Hi Everyone,
    I haven't posted much at all, but just had to share this simple little pic to celebrate my return back into the M9 fold. Taken moments ago with my new M9 and 90mm APO of a little pup, who was just rescued and somehow landed on my doorstep a week ago. So now, after ceaseless wanderings myself across various photographic deserts and valleys, I've finally found my home with a K5, H4D, and my M9. Learned a lot, made tons of mistakes, but now its time to take some pictures.
    Cheers,
    Ron

    Welcome back, Ron. Looking forward to more. (BTW, don't know how you manage to get by with that kit! Pretty minimal!)

    Robert, flower shots are wonderful!

    Now you know why all that rain frequented your area!

    Fish & flowers flourish with the rain, great colors & bokeh!

    Thanks Lloyd, I agree the golden sunset and the car reminded me of the beach sunsets growing up in San diego in the early 80s

    Amazing that a piece of metal and electronics can stir so much in a persons soul!

    CeHoffman: Nice shooting, even with the battery issues! The M9 has it's peculiarities and limits, but, unbeatable at times. Collecting "glass" is the right idea. The lenses are almost an investment. So, $10k + of camera and lens equates to a point-n-shoot. Cool.

    Cheers, Matt.

    Dan: Thanks! No, the 75/2's been mine for a while. Phenomenal lens.
    Maybe, but (and Lloyd would probably agree?) the desk objects would have to be seen from the chair in front of your pp monitor. And all photos need a time stamp of after midnight local time!

So now, after ceaseless wanderings myself across various photographic deserts and valleys, I've finally found my home with a K5, H4D, and my M9. Learned a lot, made tons of mistakes, but now its time to take some pictures.
    Cheers,
    Ron
    Ron: Nice save and photo! Great set of cameras.

    I normally dislike pictures of flowers, but my Doctor and therapist tell me take more Leica shots! best rehab program ever!

    Robert: I'm not going to say that the Dr (and therapist) are always right...but, maybe in this case. Brilliant colors.

    Cheers, Matt.

    Matt, all thee are lovely shots.

    Nice pop in the first photo, clean and crisp! I am a sucker for bokeh and the third shot has a nice soft bokeh even with the f4.8 aperture setting, nicely done.

    Thanks Matt...... f3.8 does not bothers me . So far I have been using it mostly for day time shooting . One of my favorite lens is the 21 SA and that is not a fast lens either..... I wanted something wide to use on the M8 so I went with this lens and love it .... these high contrast high iso images are not doing the lens justice.. DavidE's images have inspired me to try some architecture shots with this lens ...

    Very nice, Matt. I like the look of the M9 b/w images shot at higher ISOs. This second shot is really nice.
