And just as a reminder why we use M cameras... I was in Glasgow yesterday to re-visit the Scottish Colourists collection they hold (a real treasure) and had an M240 + 35 summicron asph in the bag - because we all know you should always have a camera with you!  There was amazing light in Glasgow that afternoon and I took a grab shot of the sky.  The sea gull (really tiny - but it would show beautifully in a print) stopped it from being an Alfred Stieglitz Equivalents rip-off :)

I wouldn't have been carrying a DSLR, and a smudgy jpeg from my iPhone wouldn't have hacked it.

WHATEVER Leica does with the M10, they've still provided us with some remarkable tool...

So do I, and this one has an interesting structure, with the gull the cherry. I had to search too, but as Chris said, it will print well.

No seagull but here's the moon. An old M8 shot. Would it be better with a M10? That's the $7,000 question.

A Leica for loonies? :D Just kidding, nice pic, Printmaker!   :)

 

I'm, not sure if the picture would turn out better with a different camera, but I don't think that's the whole question. Yes, IQ may indeed bet the ultimate decisive factor for buying a camera, but also ask yourself how you feel using it; how easy, intuitive, and quick-reacting it is; how comfortable it is to take around with you; and how robust and long lasting it is.

If you enjoy using a camera, you will take more photos. If you take more photos, you will make better photos.

 

Nice shot Jaap!

 

Shot this one from my front porch. Something to brighten your winter.

Let's make this into an everlasting photographic subject thread :) I have pinned it for a while to get it going hopefully.

 

 

I'll rate the rainbow as an "object" for once ;)
