    I like this one the best because of the clouds and sky. I can see where this would be a challenging landscape to photograph well

    Leica Good Old Glass

    My son and I swapped lenses for today. I got his 50MM Summicron Rigid (circa 1957). He got my Voigltlander 35mm Classic Nokton MC. Here are a couple of shots with the M10-R and the 50. The shot of the silo is with the 24 Elmarit (Circa 1996). So the 24 is not as old as the Summicron.... It...

    My wife was similar to your friend except for the glaucoma. She now has 20/20 vision in one eye and 20/15 in the other. My left eye has the worse cataract. It is also my dominant eye.

    It is definitely a global problem that has been going on for ages. Look at all of the archaeological who have studied thr rubbish piles from the Middle Ages and earlier.

    World is a strange place and little bit history of photography

    Interesting history. I live in Houston, Texas area. Like Turku, Houston has a bad habit of tearing down the old. The Lamar Hotel is one victim. It had a suite numbered 8F which stood for 8 friends. At its peak, the state was essentially run from that suite. One further note, one of my great...

    riding to kick cancer in the butt

    I did my cancer treatments at MD Anderson in Houston. If I started feeling sorry for myself, all I had to do was to look around. It was not hard to find someone in much worse condition than me. When I first met with my oncologist, I was told I had a 42% chance of living 38 months. After 28...

    Ralph, Let me express my condolences too. Cancer sucks. There is no two ways about it. I am a cancer survivor in several ways. I lost my mother to cancer when I was 28 (39 years ago). So I understand what it is like to loose someone to cancer. I have had multiple basil cells removed and have...

    Leica My Leica Kit - Joining The "Cult"

    I have two Leica kits. My first was the CL with the 18-56 as part of the kit. I then got the 11-23. Both are great lenses. The kit came with the L to M adapter. I couldn’t see having the adapter if I didn’t have an M mount lens. So I got the Voigtlander Classic 35 Nokton MC as it received good...

    Remarkable Motorcycles

    Granted about the reliability. Triumphs and Nortons had the stereotypical reliability issues. All the same, if I had to choose based on styling, I would go with the British bikes over the Japanese or even the American bikes. The BMWs are interesting because of the piston orientation.

    Leica The Leica M11 Monochrome officially announced.

    An individual that I first met on a Nikon brand specific board and follow of Flickr, recently got a Q2M. The results he is getting with that camera made me consider used M10-M. But I came across a used M10-R in like new condition with a 1 year Leica warranty for a good price. So I jumped at...

    Granted, there are those who buy Leica’s as a status system. There is a Las Angeles based camera store that has a good supply of camera and lenses that were bought and sold gear after figuring out that having expensive gear did not guarantee having good photographs.

    L-Mount L-mount short telephoto options - 70-300 vs 70-200 f4

    Glad you got a good copy. I suggested the Sigma because it is relatively compact. I haven't taken the time to compare it to the Panasonic 70-300. Also Sigma is producing some very good lenses right now. The Art series lenses are now available for the L mount cameras. The downside to the Sigma...

    L-Mount L-mount short telephoto options - 70-300 vs 70-200 f4

    I fully agree there are advantages and disadvantages with both systems. My first real camera was my parents' old Kodak Retina IIa. That is when I fell in love with rangefinders and photography really.. Prior to that I had a Kodak Instamatic 100. One thing I like about the M10-R is that it forces...

    Taken w/M10-R. A small "park" in Houston. More of a promenade / water retention basin but it is nicely landscaped and a pleasant area. It would have been nice to have been able to get down to the water but there is not any direct access.
