I think manual M lenses are the best option and I have moved the same direction.

The Heliar 15mm is a fantastic lens but be sure to buy the screw mount version, not only is it cheaper but it is also smaller and focuses closer (30cm vs 50cm). It is a fantastic lens though and does not have any problems on the GXR:

Fantastic church pic, love the light, thanks.

I just put the 15mm Heliar on my shopping list. You prefer the 15mm in screw mount, but do you not miss the mountig thread for filters?

Looks like Eichtersheim (Angelbachtal). The statue (by Jürgen Goertz) seems to stand in front of the Friedrich-Hecker-Haus in the street of the same name. I hope, I am correct...


Best regards, Gerd

Yes, you hit it.

Gerd, you wrote on your webside about the use of the Ricoh P10 modul for makro. Do you think that its a good choice for product photographie? The pics you see on this webside I made with the A12 50mm in macro use and I think about to use the P10 in future for that kind of stuff:

But ... I'm definitely basing my system kit around the M-bayonet lens mount and manual for the foreseeable future, whether I stick with the GXR and M9 or upgrade to the new M.

Oh, hmpf.

Leica M. I think you show me a way to totally loose teh financel control...

You should be well pleased Rainer, thanks for the trouble you have taken and the comparisons.

My pleasure, Sir.

So this afternoon I will do a few more shooz outs with the two m-lenses and the A12 and than the final words will be spoken. If you like I will post about that.
