It takes some practice to use a range-finder with a moving subject. Once you get it down, being able to see what is outside the framelines and not having a "blackout" during the exposure is a big advantage.Great honesty in the shots being posted here, I really appreciate it. Just goes to show, getting that manual focus right and the resultant 10/10 shot ain't easy and requires work and preparation. I reckon I would find getting instantaneous street shots hard with the M9.
Just think, if you had enough of those, you could do a gallery showing on focus fingers. OK, it sounds silly, but hey - you could be the first!My 50mm has a tab but I've never got into the habit of using it properly, thus when something unexpected comes along out of the blue as that little red car, my left hand ended up way up and around until I ran out of turn on my wrist.... ! I've gotten into bad habits, using a lens like the small Zeiss 25mm, I find sometimes my focus fingers end up slightly in shot!
