  • Peter, Jealously, I would ask you bring the M9 as I absolutely love and am inspired with what you create with this camera (esp. pix of your kids). On the other hand, you'll do great work with ...
  • Oh, what the heck, I'll weigh in here too. Besides the obvious difference in focal lengths, it's always interesting to see the two sensors side by side. There is absolutely nothing wrong ...
  • As we say here in 'Murica - That's what I'm talking about! Lovely! Denis
  • I think if it was the Church of Leica it would have a red dot... That's all I have on that subject! :-) still chuckling about this, Denis
  • i was simply making a joke since you said you "Worship and adore" your M9.  Forums aren't always the best place for subtle humor... Denis
  • The church of M9! Long may it thrive! (another proud member of religious order of the CCD!) Denis
  • Rodrigue, Thanks for clearing up the honeymoon! I was a little surprised and wondered what you had done for your first wife to kick you out! :-P Feel better knowing it's with the camera. You know ...
  • Replied in Awesome!
    First off, amazing shot and perfect example of a photographer knowing his camera inside and out. Peter, I wanted to just mention that I was totally blown away by your pictures with the 75mm ...
  • I just want to add that I didn't mean to be so "American-centric" here, assuming everyone knew which dollars I was referring to. I am quoting U.S. dollars, to be precise. Denis
  • I think you can get crazy about what is a "decent" lens for your M9. As I've said, I went with the Minolta/Leica 40mm Summicron C lens. It is a sleeper lens (just google it and you'll see many ...
  • Thom, There are plenty of people who are happy with their M8's and M240's. What convinced me to make the jump (and perhaps you will consider this too) is that NO ONE who bought an M9 recently ...
  • I resisted adding my voice to this thread, since my first reaction was to say, "wait and buy an M9." Like you, I was tempted to get an M8, considering how low they prices are. Here in the states, ...
  • How cool! It would not have occurred to me to do that. I guess also because she doesn't appear to be looking down at the camera. But I think you're taller than me! Denis
  • Wow! And mine has already arrived here in the states. I'm kind of dumbfounded. In a related story, I was able to sell my 90mm Elmarit R to a nice young guy on Craiglist who didn't haggle, ...
  • Another of your perfectly lit and beautifully captured images, Rodrigue. Curious as to the light source. It's so gentle. I would guess you selected her face in Lightroom and pulled up the exposure ...
  • There are very few times I jump into something like this, but I had a feeling these were going to go fast, considering they were legitimate and from a reputable dealer. I bought one too. Now I ...
  • I just saw this last night. You're making me pull the trigger... Denis
  • I'm not surprised. It's hard to explain to people who don't want to see it. It's not that the picture is "better" as much as that it simply looks different. The word I keep coming back to is ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
    boy w-goldfish
  • Those colors! Oy my gosh! I know it's possible to get a similar look with a cmos sensor, or so I'm told, but this gorgeous photo just screams CCD M9 loveliness to me. Timeless and breathtaking. ...
