Digital Leica M8 / M8.2 / M9 / M-E /Mono / M10 aka "M" Discussions about the Leica M8 /M 8.2 / M9 / M9-P/ M-E / M Monochrom / M10 aka "M": Leica digital M mount rangefinder cameras. Naming the new digital M the "Leica M" is VERY unfortunate as it will only confuse newbies with other Leica M cameras of the the past. Happily there is room for confusion with only the past 59 years of Leica M production ... since Leica introduced the Leica M system in 1953. All Hail for the Leica Marketing Department learning Leica M history!

Great stuff everybody!
Dave, the very last shot is fantastic - has a nice feel to it!

I shot the Mono very little Yesterday, just a few supplementary shots to the D3, which I used mostly with flash …

A few shots from today at the Distillery district in Toronto...













The one thing that I am noticing with the Monochrom is its ability to reproduce detail, and I've particularly noticed this in these shots (don't know if you guys can tell in these small JPEGS). I don't think my M9 rendered detail quite like this.

Other thing I've noticed in just shooting with the camera is that the viewfinder's bright lines are incredibly accurate. Interesting, as that was one thing that I didn't like about the M9 -- how inaccurate they seemed to be!

I'm still getting used to properly exposing with this camera -- I think slight underexposure works better for me, thereby assuring detail in my highlights. I'm still looking more at the screen than I probably should be after the shot is taken just to make sure I got the exposure right, but hopefully I'll be doing that less and less as I get more used to the camera. I just picked up the 21/2.8 Elmarit this week, so that's getting a bit of a workout too. Definitely will be shooting a lot tomorrow when I see all the relatives!

Thanks Dave, you are really burning up that MM. Did you use a Noctilux for this shot? I love it!

best image on this page, IMO, great dynamic./tonal range of micro and macro contrast. most other pics her could be from a dSLR.
the S21 seems to be a gem.
