  • It's made of metal and glass not plastic! I dropped my f1 Noctilux onto a concrete church floor this summer mid wedding.  It dinked the black paint slightly on one corner but the concrete came off ...
  • Should you not aim for a whole of the Noctilux can do + more?  That's my mindset anyway.  Aim for the top.
  • Thanks Eric, I do use yelllow 39E filters on the 50mm Summicron on the M3 and have an M8 also.  As a portrait photographer 28mm is not a FL I will use a lot other than for weddings so I am still ...
  • This is one of my most liked digital Leica images on Flickr this year and was also published in the Leica Meet book (M9 + Summicron 90mm f2) Link to photo - ...
  • That was my view toto. I've used a f0.95 but it is was similar to the Lux in terms of rendering. The f1 on the otherhand is imperfectly perfect in my view and that is what I use. Here is the Leica ...
  • Hi, I use Leica bodies as my main cameras and like a wider angle for Leica wedding photography. I have quite a few lenses i've collected already but with time I found my preference is often size ...
  • I am interested to understand where you can go after an M240 + Nocti other than retire?! ..or film :) The Noctilux (f1) is one lens I would never sell and the same goes for the M3s I often use it ...
  • Here! :) f1.0 v2 owner and love using it on an M3 and M9.  I am still struggling to find anything to match it in any camera format.  Teh Kodak Aero Ektar 178mm f2.5 large format lens comes close ...
  • Thanks D, I think i've explained myself further down (and above) (now).  Sorry for the delay.  Hope you're well mate and i'll look out for you in London the next time i'm down! ;)
  • Thanks Jeff, Good point well made. I think in hindsight I worded my post badly and perhaps it should have read something like if you buy a Fuji XT-1 then read the manual to understand hich parts ...
  • I think if you only shoot one subject or have a clear goal in mind then yes but if you are new to photography or lack confidence in your ability there is a good chance that more options = more ...
  • Fair point John, I guess i do all that film thinking without realising.
  • Created discussions Leica M9 vs Fuji XT1
    Leica M9 vs Fuji XT1 I am a Leica shooter (M2,M3,M8,M9) and enjoy the simplicity of how they are operated. I was teaching portrait photography in the studio at the weekend and the student brought ...
  • It seems like LR just ran out of RAM/ buffering or whatever so when I was viewing they were showing as part loaded (like if you go on Google images and view a photo.. to start with it is often ...
  • Hi M, After all that stress and confusion I have just gone into LR tonight and all the images look fine!!!! Panic over.. Phew. All good still for your wedding.  Looking forward to it! We definitely ...
  • ..Magneto, I've looked at your blog and you obviously understand the likes of CCD sensors and film and their possible 'benefits' over a DSLR CMOS sensor so I am a little baffled by your comments. ...
  • Thanks, no i've not had time to try it since but I will do to rule out if the problem persists.  One point to note is it happened using 3 different lenses, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm. I agree the screen is ...
  • Thanks D, Hope you're well mate. Thanks for the info, I will look into it.  Thanks
  • Hi I think you must be confused with a lesser camera!!!? Please think before replying. Perhaps you are not skilled/ experienced enough to use your Leica in a fast paced environment?  I teach using ...
  • Hi Guys. I'm here to pick your brains and hopefully find a miracle answer. I've used my Leica M9 for over 12 months continuesly and it hasn't missed a beat.  Yesterday I had another wedding and ...
