Thank you, this was the first shoot I had ever done with the M8. The settings on the camera were actually wrong at the time, I had no idea but it worked out. I still have a lot to learn about the M8.

I'm in love with the 35 Summarit. I decided after this photo today that it's my favorite lens of all time. I'm sure I'll feel the same way about the 50 Summilux ASPH if I get ahold of it someday.

Thanks for looking

My first Leica and, in reality, my first real street shoot. I had a fantastic day today - I'm hooked on RF's. Completely non-critical focus, point and shoot. No worrying about 17 menu levels. Love it. A few more in my gallery. Thanks all

My first post here, loving mine, if you take a look at the "Sell my M9 for an M8" post you will see where I am at, LOL.

Yes Jean-Marc, I only came around, to use it specifically last weekend.
It might well be changing my lens pairing from:

35/1.4 + M9/ film and 50/1 + M8.2 to

50/1 + M9/ film and 75/1.4 + M8.2 + 35/1.4 pre ASPH thrown in the bag for wider shots.

A dream is the 0.7m close focussing and it's complete change of face, when going from wide open (real Mandler rendering) to ƒ2 (extremely sharp and detailed rendering, almost too sharp for portraits).

Everybody should have one ;-)

Jean-Marc I enjoy your stuff by the way.


Quote:
Wow, Great shots! what lenses did you use for these portraits?
Thanks, it's a Nikkor-S.C 5cm ƒ1.4 in LTM mount - a real beauty of a lens, that focusses very close and has a really nice classic Sonnar rendering!

Dirk, have you posted any 50/1 photos here on RFF?
Hey Jean-Marc, yes I did, although work and traveling keeps me busy lately.

Here is a recent one with the M8.2 + 75 Summilux:



and with the 50 Noctilux (not sure, could also have been with the M9):

M8 w/ Canon 1.2

Now that my LC1 Panasonic has officially died, I've had to reevaluate whether it needs replacement or if I have all the tools I need.

Took this shot with the M8 and a Canon 1.2 this week. I think I'll put some more miles on the M8 - and besides, if I need higher ISO, the E-P2 and D Summilux can help fill in the gaps Here's to the unfairly maligned M8 still pumping out strong images five years into its digital life.
