    I am offically a Leica guy

    Good day all, 6th, Oct is a special day, at least for me! Its my 43th Birthday and it became more special coz i got an unbelievable gift from my other half, an M9P and a 50 Lux

    Managed only 20 mints of shooting time today before sunset

    Even though am used to manual focusing the Nikkor Noct and some Zeiss glass, i found it a bit difficult to use the Leica, it will take me some time to get used to it

    Here are a couple of shots i took today, SOOC but some Exposure adjustments





    100% Crop

    Glad to see you here, and thank you all for the kind words

    Man focusing this setup is hard let alone the composing part

    Got me a Nokton 35 1.2 II and very excited to try it, ill post some pics later on

    My condolences. You have now been infected by the Leica bug. Very, very hard to cure.

    Sarheat, welcome to the forum! You are blessed and a lucky individual to have such a kind and generous person in your life.

    Some lovely captures right from the start.

    Just relax, practice, time and patience for now and the focus and composition will follow.

    Look forward to your future contributions to the forum!

    If you ever travel to Seattle, let us know, I am sure a few members of the SLUG (Seattle Leica Users Group) would be happy to meet and take a walking/photo stroll with you.

    Hey - congratulations - focusing is only practice - you'll get there - keep practicing!

    dunno about generosity, but if your other half bought you these without prompting then you are a lucky man indeed!

    at any rate - have fun - it isn't difficult (later)

    Just this guy you know
