I'm not sure if it's allowed but Brian: I bought a few for during my workshops attendees could buy it afterwards with a discount, I've got two left brand new in the box including the leather carrying case and extra battery... I can let them go for a good price ;)
I shoot various Leica systems for a living (I do reportage photography and workshops, teach classes...) I've shot the following Leica's digitally:
Leica R (R8 with DM-R)
I currently own a Digital Leica S-E (Typ 006) and an X-E (Typ 102) and X (Typ 113)
I used to shoot...
The E in the name stands for 'Entry' or 'Economy':
Leica releases the new Leica X (Typ 113) which has a hefty price tag, but Leica wants to be able to have people buy a new Leica for a smaller price so get them into the brand their tactic is as follows: Use the exact same parts as in the Leica...
The X-E is an amazing capable little camera (Exactly the same as the X2) I got a growing flickr album with some pics taken with it if you guys are interested in seeing some more pics! :D Leica X-E (Typ 102)

I wrote a new article!
In this article I will go over my workflow for photos taken on film rather than digital. I will be using software suite Nikon Scan 4, and will go over the settings I use for scanning with the Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 ED. This article will be most of...
I've used a M6TTL for a while and really enjoyed it and the build in light meter is easy for quick correction or aid to your hand held meter. With TRI-X you'll be okay without a meter, or the build in meter will be more than enough. With films that are a bit less flexible I prefer using a hand...
I have written a short article with real world result photos on the Leica Elmarit-M 28mm ASPH. A great little lens with really good performance and that as the cheapest in the Leica M lineup.

Short review about the Leica Summicron-M 1:2/35mm ASPH. with real life results (no test charts). I've tried to show the versatility of the lens by showing different sorts of subjects, and different approaches with different types of Leica M cameras.

Thanks guys! I'll just get on posting than. As much as I would love to donate, I'm already sponsoring 3 others forums. And that's my maximum. I can't afford to keep donating all the forums I visit.
Maybe later :)
I want to set a avater, I've set a profile picture but also want to set a avatar, I see others using a avatar but when I go to the avatar setting page I only see the following:
Any help would be much appreciated! :)
A day at the beach with the Summilux-M 50mm ASPH. mounted on the Leica M (Typ 240)
I wrote a short article about the lens and it's performance with real life images to go with it... no bench mark testing images, just a day at the beach and dunes.
