Leica M8 with my 1956 KMZ 5cm F1.5 Jupiter 3, wide-open. The KMZ J-3's have German glass in them, this is one of the last. I modified this lens to focus to 0.8m instead of the normal 1m minimum.

On one of my first major photowalks with the M9, I grabbed this image with the Zeiss 25mm f2.8.

Japan was a very big test of my rangefinder skills. Sometimes I met the challenge, other times I didn't. This time I think I did. Zeiss ZM 21mm f2.8.

Coupled with the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.4, the M9 deals with night scenes very, very well.

I'm really enjoying the photographs on this thread - love seeing the different lenses employed, too. I am also so thankful that the Leica M cameras don't have autofocus so I can't be tempted.:wink:

Keep those photos coming!

Beautiful pictures. It is remarkable, how often the M-cameras are used with non-M lenses.

Leica M9 (not mine, sadly!), Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 lens. Taken at the Leica Akademie, which I am just about to write up....

What I like most about this shot was serendipity: the eradicated graffiti appears to be smoke coming from the frog's cigar:

M5-User, you picked a real beauty for your first! Am I correct that the last time you developed any film was 41 years ago? One thing is for sure, you haven't lost your touch and that M5 is working beautifully for you.:drinks: Welcome to SC!

Deirdre, I can see exactly what you mean about that expunged graffiti being Mr.Frog's smoke swirls, and I can't wait to read what you have to say about your Leica Akademie workshop - and that M9. Looking forward to more from you soon.:biggrin:

I'm impressed, as well as being excited for you! Let's see...I believe the last time I developed and printed from film was in - gasp! - about 1981. You do the math - and don't tell me.
