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!

Pretty quiet in town this morning, at least on the west side.

CV21/4 on M9.

Great photo and cool processing of that shot Chris. Another I-don't-need-the-Monochrom-after-all shot.

I'm relieved that the consensus here is that the M9 isn't dead. It's taken 'til now for the used price to fall to a manageable level, for me at least.

Thanks Richard - I was lucky to find the light reflecting down into the street so nicely between the buildings. It's a fairly new section of town and still pretty smart looking. And I'm still loving what I can do with those M9 raw files.

I really like this. There is a stark, graphic quality about it.
I just got a copy of this lens and I'm looking forward to trying it on my M9.

Agreed. One can sense the tension in the atmosphere.

Some shots of mine, first time shooting after a hiatus of almost a year...M9 + 35mm 1.2, iso 1600.

From the Gallery. The fill light has a shadow going too. M9 and ZM 35 C Biogon. Take it with me to work every day. Last case of the day, still toting camera, came out into the evening sunlight and saw this. The camera you have with you.....

Klaus, you're getting very good noise control at 1600. My pictures are mostly terrible at that ISO, and this fashion picture is dominated by darker tones. Do you over-expose slightly to control that?

I managed to get out and shoot with the M9 again, this time to work with a lens I've hardly used and that often gets a bad rap: the Voigtländer Ultron 28mm f/2. A set of test photos and pixel peeping showed the usual mentioned flaws (corner darkening wide open, unsharp corners until two-three stops down); happily no focus shift on this example that I could see.

However, that doesn't stop it from producing some lovely results, in my opinion:


ISO 200 @ f/3.5 @ 1/90 sec



ISO 200 @ f/2 @ 1/125 sec

The DNG files were processed in LR 4.2. No adjustments other than adding a little vignette effect and then a border treatment (with Flare). #131 was a square crop of the top 2/3 of the frame. #132 is uncropped.

Comments are always appreciated.
