    Leica Showcase Leica M10-R / Summicron-M 1:2.0/50

    I have started carrying a small note pad and pen to record apertures and other information about where I was, conditions and anything else that I may want to remember.

    Leica Showcase Leica M10-R / Summicron-M 1:2.0/50

    Abandoned sugar mill in Sugar Land Texas. Once the home of Imperial “Pure Cane” Sugar. What I remember most about Imperial Sugar is that it was just about the only sugar brand anyone in Houston used. When traveling through the state, if you stopped at a diner or cafe, you would see packets of...

    How is the weather sealing on the camera and lens? I would be hesitant about that situation with either of my Leicas.

    Leica Showcase Leica 24mm f/2.8 ELmarit

    Conoco Tower Station, Route 66, Shamrock Texas. This served as a model for the station in the movie Cars. Both photos were taken tripod mounted with a 2 second shutter delay to minimize vibration.

    I took a drive up into the Texas Panhandle to photograph an old gas station that was the basis for the gas station / body shop in the Cars movies. On the way, I came across some abandoned farm buildings.

    Leica Showcase Leica M10-R / Summicron-M 1:2.0/50

    I found a used one in like new condition. All that was missing was some of the original papers. I probably saved 10%-15% over a new lens.

    Nice set of photos. Too bad you did not go to Kamakura. I have always enjoyed the temples there. When I was in Yokohama on business, we could see Fuji from the office when there was a north wind. I would also see Fuji on the train when traveling from Yokohama to Odawara or Osaka

    How many cameras do you currently own?

    It depends on how you count. I have possession of a Leica CL and M10-R with 6 lenses for the kit. My son has my Nikon D7100 with 3 zooms and my FM3a. There are also 2 point and shoots that never get used.

    Central Texas - In search of bluebonnets and other wild flowers

    There were some large fields of bluebonnets on the east side of Hempstead on 290 / 6. But they were on the ring side of the highway and the shoulder was crowded with other cars. The baffling thing was people thought it was ok to climb over the fence and trespass on the property.

    Central Texas - In search of bluebonnets and other wild flowers

    These were taken near Washington, Texas. It is close to Washington on the Brazos where the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed. The blue bonnets are starting to come into bloom but not at peak yet.

    Leica My Leica Kit - Joining The "Cult"

    I have had the 28 for such a short time, it is hard to say. I do like the wider FOV of the 24 but it tends to need the external view finder. Whereas the 28 has the built in frame lines. The lenses performs similarly. So I think I will use the 24 when I want the additional width. If I am out...

    Leica My Leica Kit - Joining The "Cult"

    Well, I had some money in my pocket and it was burning a hole in it. Nothing else to do but to buy a Elmarit-M 1:2.8/28. I really like this lens. This pretty well finishes out my kit. I have a 24, 28, 35 and 50. I also have my CL with th 11-23 and 18-56. Here are a few from the 28.

    Binoculars anyone?

    I have the Nikon Monarch 7, 10x42. I have been quite pleased with them. They are relatively light weight and perform well. I have had them with me when photog birds with my Nikon D7100 and 200-500 zoom. The magnification on the binoculars was greater than the lens when set to 500 mm.

    Ah….. but that is the thing, Stetson makes a wide variety of hats. A fedora is not a cowboy hat. A fedora has a shorter brim with a different shape. A cowboy hat has a wider brim and tends to curve up higher. The crease in the crown can be similar but tend to be different. Then there is also...

    My first DiY bird feeder

    The cat issue is very real. So are squirrels and other rodents. Is there a wall you can place the log on where it can stand on end? If so, you could drill some holes to put a suet based feed in the holes. This would attract birds that cling such as woodpeckers. Here in the US, we have a store...

    Leica FOV Test w/ M10-R and Summicron-M 50, Voigtlander Classic 35 Nokton MC and Elmrit-M 24

    The purpose of this was to get a better understanding of the FOV for each lens. I would prefer to select a lens based on the location and then fine tune any zooming with my feet. The settings for the camera, lenses and Lightroom were the same. I wanted to try to minimize any influence on the...

    Taken at the local Cadillac dealer. I was there checking on the status of my order. The photographed car is a CT4-V Blackwing. For those unfamiliar with it, it is similar to a BMW M3. It is almost track ready. Of the two photographs, I prefer the 2nd but like both. I used the MC version of the...

    Leica Elmarit-M 28 Pre-ASPH vs. ASPH

    Gentlemen, thanks for the prompt response. I imagine I will be on the phone with the vendors this week. I do like the compactness of the ASPH version but what attracts me to the Pre-ASPH is the Wetzlar CLA. So from a performance aspect, it should be good as new.

    Leica Elmarit-M 28 Pre-ASPH vs. ASPH

    Can anyone explain the performance difference between the two? I have found several good clean copies and am trying to decide which I should consider. Another option would be to get the Voigtlander Ultron and the 50 Nokton 1.2 or 50 Lanthar APO
