Leica M8 / M8.2 / Ricoh GXR Smaller than full frame digital Leica M mount cameras. The Ricoh is included as a less expensive and viable digital Leica M lens platform.

It would be great for your Rollei/Zeiss lenses as well as M's.
The Full frame Sony would still be better since you have the M9 for wide angle.

I owned both the Zeiss 35mm f1.4 and 85mmf1.4.
It's a shame to crop them on an aps or m43 sensor.

I agree with you, Andy. One day, I need to buy a Leica Mxx body or a Sony FF body. These two Zeiss lenses are worth the investment. Amedeo is working on a custom adapter for me for the Zeiss 50/1.4 to M. If he can then also create an adapter for the 35/1.4 and the 85/1.4, that would be awesome (and money saving for me), but it could be that the 50 is best suited for an adapter.

thank you Wenge I have read and had been told again and again that the CV 4/25 is meant to be used stopped down, maybe this has been one reason why I have enjoyed to use it wide open

the GXR M + Heliar 15mm continues to be my best combination for wide angle, better than the CV 4/15mm or 4/21 on the FF Sony A7, see the corners ( of these 2 uncropped photos ) and the almost non existent distortion:

thank you very much Benji! If I may say so I believe that this intimacy generally is a 'forte' of my travel / documentary photography. I am a foreigner who has been living on and off for various years, feel quite at home and at ease in the countries I frequent and prefer to take photos of normal people who sometimes may not expect to be of interest to a foreigner. Often they feel and are pleased by my genuine interest and appreciation when I ask them if I may take the photo. I try to capture their first reaction and, composing rather formally, static, 'monumental', to make that communication the main dynamic aspect in the photo.

Bali..the main touristic areas suffer from permanent traffic jam.
a mural in Ubud, the flies set in, "aku datang" means I come / arrive, and the lady wearing a gas mask says, in a bit faulty English, "I want to retierd being exotic":
( I had shown this before without comment )
