From a recent trip into the San Joaquin Valley, all with the CV 15/4.5, cropping the dark corners in LR:

Finally getting around to uploading some photos from my time spent with the M-D. I rented it for a week recently and enjoyed it thoroughly. I'm not the best with color processing digital images and have always hated digital color files straight out of the camera (as a film shooter, color editing is something I've never really something I've messed with much, portra 400 does the trick). The black and white conversion in lightroom worked nicely and I mostly messed with curves here and there, the first color file has a bit of adjustment, the second I posted is straight out of camera @1600 iso. The "grain" is lovely at 1600, especially in black and white. I love black and white in general, so maybe the monochrom is more up my alley.

Overall I really enjoyed using it - it was definitely a seamless transition from using my M4. My only qualm with it is using the internal meter, as I find it rather distracting since my M4 doesn't have one. Aperture priority was nice to have though. I love the fact that changing the ISO is physical and having it on the back is a nice touch. The LED framelines are awesome, that's the one thing I wish my M4 had. The weight wasn't terrible and it definitely didn't feel like a digital camera while I was using it. It was nice to not worry about chimping, but I've got to come clean - when I first got it and was testing it out, I found myself taking the memory card out and importing the files every five minutes to see how they'd turned out. That was a bit annoying, but I got over it after the first day and would just wait to the end of the day to see what I got. It's just something that makes me think the option of the LCD screen is probably more up my alley, although I likely wouldn't be chimping unless the shot was critical/for a paid shoot. In this case it was the interest in seeing how the camera performed right when I opened the box. I haven't got any real complaints at this point, aside from the price. I don't think I could justify paying $4k in my current financial position to get one of these cameras. It doesn't make sense when I can pick up an M-P 240 for around $3k, and even then I'm not sure it makes sense for me to do right now. If I had the income, I'd jump on it in a heartbeat.

I'm glad I rented it, as it helped me understand how much I love shooting film and the possibility that digital just isn't my cup of tea. Most of it is a matter of processing ability, which is my own personal issue. Film just gives me the results I like at this point, so it's going to save me money for the time being. We'll see what happens in the future - for now, I'll stick to shooting film.

If you click on the images, they'll open up in a new page, fit to the screen. Sorry for the large files.

And pardon the grumpy/tough guy face, wasn't feeling the best that day with all the pollen in the air, but I like the portrait otherwise hahaha

Love this camera. I never bonded with my M240, but this one I shoot just like a film camera. Here's a shot from the garden of the Smithsonian Castle in WDC:

I think you're right on that point - maybe more of a 'snapshot' quality? Or perhaps it's more akin to being a 'note-taker'? I can feel the difference, and it's nice to know that difference is perceived in the images. Thanks for the comment!

I'm sure I could simply turn the screen off on my 246, but somehow it wouldn't be the same as what the M-D offers (or doesn't offer?). Definitely a different approach, at least for me.

One can, with the M-D lag between shooting/download, afford to be as abstract and snappy and hypothetical as one once was with film. Of course that applies only to me, unless any of you also find it is so, given how your shooting/developing habits have evolved.

When all I shot was film, I had periods where the shooting was more abstract and risky and What If, until it was developed and I saw how few I got right. Which is okay, unless you believe that you ought to nail 20 out of 24 on every roll. Then, in the fullblown digital era, I could expose and trash one after another until I experienced a surfeit, an imagination bloated and jaded from digital-abstract-snap/trash-it-and-move-on overload.

That time is past too. Now the M-D feels like the device where I record thoughtful secrets I will share with myself later, when I no longer need them to be what I thought I wanted to see or show—and so far they give me greater joy and discovery and developmental possibility that way. That may qualify as a form of priceless value at this point in my life.

Probably the most eloquent thoughts I've read about using this great camera.

I've changed my skepticism about the MD courtesy of my RD1 which I have now taken to using without the screen. This because I worry about the ribbon cable connecting the fold out screen to the camera ... and its longevity. I keep the screen folded in and I have to say it has totally changed the way I use the camera and I find it more enjoyable and of course the basic settings of the Epson are available on top of the camera allowing me to use it like this.

I don't own a Leica M-D, but I understand its appeal, as I have the rear screen turned off my on Fujis. It has the added benefit of extending battery life.

Not bad for f/1.5. Loving that crazy background!

Trying out another lens that I might possibly add to my collection - an 8-element Version 1 35/2 Summicron with goggles. The view is actually pretty nice with the combined goggles and the 1.25x magnifier. I’ve always fancied this lens, but just not sure that I ‘need’ it.

Some lovely photos, Vince!

I have some recent work with the M-D to process yet, it's been overshadowed in resent weeks by the CL since I wanted to concentrate on that in order to learn it. It could go either way at this point... I'm leaving on a six week trip next Wednesday and I'll either take the M-D with 35 and 75 lenses or the CL with 28 and 50 lenses.

Or I might do something else entirely. One shouldn't be so predictable, eh?

Many thank yous! I finally managed to get out and do some shots (going away for 10 days seemed to help that), and I've been using that 65mm setup as well as the goggled 35/2 Summicron. I'm still on the fence as to whether I'm going to keep the Summicron or not. It has a little bit of haze in it, and I'm not sure that's it's really offering much of an advantage over my 35/3.5 Summaron. Maybe the closer-focusing ability and the additional 1.5 stops, but not sure if that warrants purchasing it.

A test shot with a Dual Range Summicron at f/2. This lens really only works on the M-D in the 'close' range. Really interesting and sharp lens!
