In reply to Jono Slack, Jan 4, 2012

I have the Leica M5 and a digital rangefinder camera the Seiko/Epson R-D1 and 2 Barnak (LTM) cameras. I also have the Oly E-P1 and Panny G1 and several M to m4/3 and LTM M39 to m4/3 adapters. I like all of them.

I'm the type of photographer who preferes manual focusing. The optcal glass/mirrored rangefinder system may be a little challanging to get the focus just right in some lighting conditions but I really enjoy the challange. I agree with Jono, we can have both.

One question. With focus peaking do you find yourself still looking at the subject or are you looking at the colered outlines indicating what's in focus for the majority of your shots?
Life as an artist has had some unusual times to say the least.
