    Guy recommended this and I went for it. Not only inexpensive -- indispensable.
    Does anyone know where I can find one of these "STEER" focus assist rings for my 75 lux?

    Here's a shot I took with a 75 lux last year. Just a quick snapshot of my Dad, while we were eating lunch, and it's turned out to be one of my best photos of him.

    OK, I just found the STEER on the "LeicaGoodies" site.

    Mike,
    I love the shot of your Dad. You nailed it and I'm sure that your Dad is very pleased with the portrait.

    Mike, that is an awesome shot in every way possible! I am surprised you even considered selling your M8 after getting that.

    Shame on you, but welcome back to the family!

    Yeah, I know... I should have never sold the M8. But hopefully the Leica gods have forgiven me, now that I've bought another M8, and I'm back in the game

    I agree Mike, that's a wonderful portrait. The 75 lux is fast becoming one of my favorite things in life. I rarely shoot photos with people in them, but the 75 seems like a perfect lens for when I do.

    It's one of my favorites. It's also why I'm hesitant to go digital and have the 75mm be too tight.

    Nice to see this thread and all the wonderful images. It reinforces my recent decision to sell my 75 cron and commit to the lux! I love this lens. While mostly for portraits of course it has many uses. Here's a recent one at 1.4.....Peter
