M6 with 35mm/3.5 Summaron (which, contrary to legend, is not a soft, low contrast lens).

I would have to get a .85 body for that, the way anything over a 50 looks in the VF looks strange and too far away for me.

This Leica stuff is for film only ( see name ), for that focal length, I use an FM3A with a 105 2.5, frames up much faster and is fairly unobtrusive.

.....and then there is always my enormous but spectacular 85 1.2 Canon...:rolleyes:

I am sticking with my tight kit, it is more my style.

gratulation, seems to be a used on?

Take these moments and put them in a box,
or on a film,
or in a rff forum.

Handle with care,
but use it.

Now there's nothing more to buy,
only some lenses, but no other body.

Interesting. The Sonnar is a little bigger than I had expected.

Yes, it is used. The original owner had it a year, claims he only put 3 rolls through it. It shows nearly no use (only one or two very light scratches you can only see in the right light, and some fingerprints).

I plan to use this camera extensively. I bought it with the intent that it will be the last camera I'll ever need. I'm going to use it, not baby it (but at the same time, I won't abuse it, either). I'm set now on lenses, the only thing I think I'll ever be tempted to do is switch to all Leica lenses, but I'm very happy with what I have now (and can't afford anything else).

Its a deceiving angle. The lens is a bit fat, but I don't think its that big. I took some side by side size comparisons with this lens and the 50/2 ZM in the following thread

What? Sell the ZI, the 25 ZM, or both?

Nachkebia 10-30-2006 13:33

Both or one by one, I had really nice offer on MP and M7 and honestly I don`t know if I will prefer viewfinder of leicas over Zeiss ikon, I think my second body will be bessa R4A (not because I don`t like leicas, I love them, but what I really need is second body, and R4 sounds exactly what I want, a rangefinder camera that has 28mm frame lines and you space around to see what you are composing), as for 25 ZM I don`t even know what could you buy instead of this magic lens! 24 elmarit? good luck :D

My two Mīs at the moment with the lens-combo of the month ;)

Chrome M6 (92) with Nokton 35mm 1,2 and Ilford Delta 3200, and my all carry around, Black M6 (85) with a 2nd gen 50mm elmar, always with Kodak BW400CN.
Actually i prefer the chrome with the Rigid summicron and the black one with my 28mm elmarit (3rd gen) .. so next month back to basic again ..

All together in a Lowepro stealth reporter 200 AW :)

The Biogon 25 is a great lens (your photos prove as much). But the Elmarit 24 is also very special.

Artorius 10-30-2006 14:25

Here's mine
 
M3 SS, meter works good and is only a 1/2 stop under from my L 308S, ML Grip and MP Winder from PhotoEquip(I highly recommend 'em), 50mm DR Summicron, Bug-eyed Summaron f/ 3.5 35mm, Elmar f/4 90mm, Domke Strap.

I for see a MP ala carte in the VERY near future.

My new M6 Weitzlar with 50 Summicron and hood, and M4 with CV Ultron 35. Some Mamiya TLRs as a backdrop.

Agreed. Sean Reid has reviewed both lenses; the optical differences are very subtle; the price difference not so.

Hey - it's the artistic sort of madness :p :)

All the best as always,
