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!

The M9 can do cats, as the first page proved. Need the Nex or new M to focus beyond 100mm? Nope.

135 Tele Elmar at f4.

Nice cat pic :-) I assume you had very little time to take this picture. How easy is it to focus with the 135mm?

She doesn't stay still, but I guess I know her well enough to sense the timing.

Anil
Anil, she stayed a while there, a Russian Blue. The Tele-Elmar has a long focus throw and with so little use since it was made in the '70s it's a little stiff. Fast enough focus nevertheless I think. My enjoyment of that lens has been transformed by framing with the SHOOC finder.

50 C Sonnar. Manual exposure, for what would have been an in-camera automatic metering challenge.

I love the tonality of this. And those mountain shots are great. Welcome to the forum, I forgot to say earlier.

M9 JPEG Black and White. ISO 1250. I could not get as a good an image from the RAW file in Lightroom no matter what I tried.

35 Summicron v4 f2 1/15s

Chris, an M Monochrom would be superfluous for you. Nice shot.

Thanks Richard. I'll admit I'm really liking the M9 raw files - very rich and flexible. The high contrast look is easy to achieve, while a soft low contrast appearance suits some subjects better.
