wow amazing. Is the sky the result of a polarizer or just post processing?

Captain Hook: Indeed, brings back memories. Happy & good memories! :-)
I have used the D700 to my satisfaction. The D700 travelled and hike a lot in my backpack, up & down the mountains in the Alps.
Just a great, handsome and sturdy camera. I swapped it for a D800E, because of the higher resolution and better DR. But the D700 will always bring a smile on my face. :-)

Amen brother!

Georgescanvas: What baffles me is why people, even if they have the money , choose to buy these Leica's. It must be a status thing.

What part of "full manual" cant a modern (or old!) DSLR do? Exposure? check. Focus? Check Optical VF? Check. Prime Lenses? Check. Choosing apertures on the lenses? Check (depending on the lens)
You loved the classic camera look? - Great , I agree they look great.
You really enjoy this kind of photography? Great, more power to you I say.
But to say that you can only get full manual controls with a Leica, is complete BS

In reply to:

Ronan_M: Well I guess you're paying for the experience of using a Leica. If that rocks your boat and you've got the cash, why not? It does look lovely if you like the retro look.
However, I will laugh hard at any hint of rationalising the use of this camera as an image-making device.
Why would anyone part with that much cash for something that performs significantly worse than a 700$ entry-level kit is beyond me. That "Leica" name has to really really give you hardons to justify this.

Sure man. If I had to pick something to put on a display unit and admire its engineering and manufacturing high standards, ABSOLUTELY, HANDS DOWN, I'd pick a Leica M10. Now, if I wanted to actually take some pictures, I'll pick the 700$ Chinese POS every day.
