Eric Boe's recent activity

  • Personal style and preference, but I like a bag that won't scratch my camera if I throw both on the same shoulder. This means no steel zippers, studs, or rivets allowed. The bag you reference has ...
  • Replied in Economics
    The silver Noctilux is also a few hundred more than the black one.  For these two new silver lens releases, they use the same metal types for the barrels and mounts, differing only in finish.  On ...
  • Replied in Maybe not
    I looked at completed Ebay sales and there were 4 sold recently between 600 and 650. The AF is usable but slow. Perhaps you can share the type of photography that you do for further opinions. If ...
  • Replied in Good plan
    Excellent plan. The better you know your gear, the better you will be at achieving the results you want. The '109 should keep you busy for at least a couple of years. Enjoy! Eric
  • I already put down a deposit to be first in line at the local dealer. Here's to hoping it arrives in 2015. So Cody, what will be your next Leica lens and why? Eric
  • http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2013/05/27/color-photography-with-the-leica-m-monochrom-by-richard-greenstone/ Search for Leica Monochrom Technicolor. Eric
  • The new M-A is an exquisite execution of the mechanical Leca rangefinder camera. It is easily a camera you can own and use for a lifetime. On the other hand, you can say the same about the MP, and ...
  • I see Metz is releasing a self-branded version of the flash for 1/3 of the price. Does anyone know what functional differences it will have?
  • Cody, I really prefer no bag no bag at all, one lens at a time, but if I need a second or third lens, the two models listed above are great.  Top-quality materials, weather resistant, but the big ...
  • Cody, Taking your comment seriously, let's take a quick look at some engineering considerations: The lens elements have to achieve certain indices of refraction for an optical design to work. ...
  • I have the privilege of owning both the Summicron and Elmarit, and hope to add the Summilux once a serial production version is made available. The Summicron is a superb performer, and is widely ...
  • Replied in Brass and glass
    Cody, This is an easy one. You have a lens with multiple, large elements, some using very special glass, held in place with robust brass mountings and barrels. They are heavy compared with the ...
  • Time to return the volley, Thre are several options that could allow for the M experience sooner than later.  You have not listed where you are located. If you are in a moderate to major ...
  • Cody, Glad to share some objective and a lot of subjective data here.  Ask away. May I recommend picking up one of the excellent Leica Compendium volumes from Erwin Puts.  He has a ...
  • Toccata47, Thanks for for sharing the story of the find of a lifetime.  Now that you know that it is a quite valuable item, you can use that knowledge when and if you decide to part with it. The ...
  • To the original poster: I purchased the f/1.0 version shortly after the turn of the Millennium.  I think the new price was like $2.6K.  More recently, I added the f/0.95 version.  Both are very ...
  • Idea 1:  rent a film M, such as an M6, add a 35, and shoot tri-x.  This should be much less expensive than a Monochrom.  Maybe add a light yellow filter to bump the contrast. Idea 2:  pick up a ...
  • So, for the X100, X100S, and now X100T, I have equipped all three with a ProMaster cap leash.  This is the one with the small, rectangular sticky pad for the cap. When it's forecast to sprinkle, I ...
  • With a little photoshop magic to change the background, perhaps it could be entitled, "Constipation."
  • I concur with the excellent advice here on buying only what she will use.  Not everyone is a photographer. May I suggest a gift certificate for a formal holiday setting at a local or Sears portrait ...
