Very nice, Vince. I admit to believing M-D owners would eventually miss their screens and go back to LCD bodies. I sure was wrong.

Many thanks - like you say John, I was wondering if I'd made a mistake by purchasing the M-D instead of the SL. But working with it and seeing the results confirms that I made the right choice.

Testing out a new (to me) lens that I just got -- Nikkor-S 50/1.4 (Japan).

Shot wide open -- pretty crazy background!

Ha! Yeah maybe! It's certainly had a lot of leather treatment applied to it.

I think when I bought it earlier this year it was old store stock, so it probably hadn't even been used before I got it. I think I've ridden this bike about 10 times since I finished it. I have 4 other bikes so I have to spread the 'love' around

Many thanks Helen - I tell you, I am just so taken with this camera (even a year later) that I almost don't feel the need for my Monochrom. Almost

I should have upped the ISO setting for indoors, but I was too blown away gaga over this gorgeous Mercedes-Benz W196 GP car this morning to think clearly about what I was doing with the camera ...

Pretty amazing colours! They really don't need all that much work afterwards do they?

That's right! If I had a concern with M-D color it would be a tendency toward orange in skin tones. Not sure just what to do about that...

Some years ago I headed off to a similar group trip to an off-the-beaten-path island (Malta) with a new digital RF (an M8 then), reminiscent of this trip. That time I was not yet a believer in the utility of the UV/IR Cut filter, didn't even have one. But that experience demonstrated the necessity!

So now I may be a bit superstitious about IR contamination in later Leica dRF cameras which, while better at blocking IR than the M8, still allow more through than a Cut filter does. So I like to use a UV/IR Cut filter too... And I suspect this may clean up the colors a little on my photos. Sound reasonable?

Doug I just picked up a UV/IR cut filter for my Nikkor-S lens. I think I'm going to do a with/without test to see the colour differences.

A really quick test with and without the UV/IR cut filter.

Without the filter:


Riley Without UV IR
by Vince Lupo, on Flickr

With the filter:


Riley With UV IR
by Vince Lupo, on Flickr

Both shots were equally adjusted in PhotoShop RAW. Interesting that the AWB reading in the 'with' photo was 5800K with a -11 tint, whereas the 'without' shot had and AWB of 5600K with a -12 tint. So evidently the camera chose to give the shot with the filter a warmer white balance. What I did was to bias on the side of the 'without' photo and I made both 5600K with a -12 tint.

Not sure if it's just my eye, but I think the skin tone in the 'with' filter photo seems a bit less red. They were both shot within about two minutes of each other in late day open shade.

Thoughts?

I have some pics of the same car (I assume, based on the number on it) from when it was in the Petersen museum. I agree it's a beauty. Nice shots of it.

Interesting comparison, Vince... The skin tone change fits with my observation, and note the greens being slightly brighter "with", a bit dull "without". There is also a cooler look to the black fabric...

Thank you!

It would be the same car. #16 was Stirling Moss's car from the 1954-1955 GP seasons. (I believe #22 was Herrmann, #20 was Kling, and #7 was Fangio.) Seeing it in the flesh was a boyhood fantasy come to life.

I'm going to shoot some more with the UV/IR filter and try to do a few more with/without comparisons.

I was just looking through this entire forum thread and I realized that I've owned the M-D for exactly one year. Still in love with this camera, and I'm hoping that it continues for a good long time. You know it's a long-term commitment when you peel the clear plastic cover off the baseplate

The 2017 incarnation of the camera -- the 5cm f/1.4 Nikkor-S, 1.25x eyepiece, a newly-installed mini soft release, the original strap (which I've now grown to like). Oh yes and of course the UV/IR filter.

That MD looks to be a real camera...just like film ..w/o the film...
Funny though...that people leave the plastic on the base plate..thats the 1st thing that comes off for me..right out of the box..
I wonder though..if they will made a new MD soon... in the M10 specs ...

I still have the plastic on the baseplate of my Monochrom 246. Don't know why, just do. It's ironic as it's the one that usually lives in a half-case, whereas the M-D is always 'naked'.

I can't imagine that they'd be introducing a new M-D In the immediate future - the camera has only been out a little more than a year, so I can't see why they'd do it now. Maybe in a couple of years? I don't even attempt to predict what Leica will do. It would be interesting if they did at some point though!

Same here ... for some reason, I haven't taken the plastic off the M-D base, but it's never in a case. It just feels so right in my hand... My M4-2 is in an A&A half-case ... gives me a better grip on it, it seems a bit slim for my hands.

Whether Leica comes out with another generation of M-D is an interesting question. At some point, I hope, to keep the line running and current. But I'm completely delighted with my existing one and don't really want any other M. I've had some odd thought occasionally of buying a second body, I like it so much, but that seems a bit excessive; I haven't seriously considered it.

I have the Leica grip on mine, so the baseplate is back in the box. I'm not fond of that original strap; after brief use it went into the box too. The pad is so slippery, it kept sliding off my shoulder.
Godfrey, I hear that you are seriously considering a second M-D while you can still get one!

No, not seriously. I think about it from time to time, but I'm pretty happy with the cameras I have now and really don't need another. I still have a few that I need to sell, as a matter of fact.

I use a Street Strap on the M. It seems just right for the size and weight of the camera.

Maybe the M60 would be a better choice

I had a chance to buy an M60 set, minus the lens, when I was deciding on the M-D. I decided to go with the M-D for a few reasons. I'm glad I did. Not worth rehashing again...

I don't know if this sounds goofy, but after a stressful few weeks of very early mornings and long days getting photos and videos done for clients, at the end of the day I like nothing better than to go into the backyard and take useless photos of the garden with my M-D.

I can honestly say that I don't think that Nikkor-S is ever going to come off this camera!

I was just looking through this entire forum thread and I realized that I've owned the M-D for exactly one year. Still in love with this camera, and I'm hoping that it continues for a good long time. You know it's a long-term commitment when you peel the clear plastic cover off the baseplate

The 2017 incarnation of the camera -- the 5cm f/1.4 Nikkor-S, 1.25x eyepiece, a newly-installed mini soft release, the original strap (which I've now grown to like). Oh yes and of course the UV/IR filter.

Beautiful outfit! I have a Tamarkin leather strap on my M262 that's similar to this strap, with the exception that it does not include a shoulder pad.

Right now I am utilizing an M9 as my second/backup body. I'm hoping this time next year for the M262 to be my second body, with maybe one of these MD's as my primary.

You won't be sorry if you add an M-D to your camera bag. Using it for the last year, I don't miss the rear screen one bit -- actually when I use my 246 I now forget that I have the screen.

The one thing about the outfit above (with the Nikkor lens) is that I had to change the lens hood to a generic screw-in type. That Nippon-Kogaku clip-on hood kept falling off when I'd accidentally brush against something and I was afraid of either damaging it or losing it. So practicality had to take precedence over authenticity

My thoughts have been pointed in another direction the past few weeks so I haven't been shooting very much. However, I pulled out the M-D for a few snaps the other day and continue to marvel at how delightful a camera it is.

I don't have an M-D, or any M bodies, but so enjoy this thread for its images and discussion. Wonderful stuff, thanks for sharing it all.

re Vince's pic of the brooks saddle, my wife rides her townie fitted with the B66 - she claims its comfort brought her back to regular riding. all hail brooks!
