  1. From the rear fins/rudders and the strut suspension for the wheels, some kind of aerocar?
  2. My customary 2-lens travel kit is comprised of 28 and 75 'crons; find this works well for me. These on an M9. If considering an M8-equivalent crop factor and the M9 "full frame", this works out to effective FOV's of 28, 35, 75, and 90.
  3. Very well done portraits; I particularly like the one of Scott Pruett (eventual co-winner in DP).

  5. I downloaded and installed 6.4.2 today. Am using Snow Leopard OS, which works fine. Cannot comment on Snow Lion usage.
  6. Poas volcano, Costa Rica M9, 28 'cron, SilverEfexPro2.0
  7. Michael, Your image brings back memories of the 2 Zone VI workshops I attended in the late '70s and early '80s. If I remember correctly, the camera around Fred's neck was an M2 with 35mm lens - which he used primarily for moving subjects; he also used a Nikon F with 105 lens for portraits.

  9. Assuming you do NOT wear glasses, in which case even the framelines for 28 mm may be difficult to see at one glance - and may require some slight horizontal shifting of eye position to see the full 28mm field of view.
  10. I recently ordered a 12466 hood for use with a 28 'cron, and UliWer asked me to post any additional thoughts or impressions I might have. I received the 12466 hood today, and following are my impressions: The hood is very/ridiculously/absurdly expensive (pick one) - even by Leica standards - and certainly will not be for everyone; It does not vignette the image at all on an M9 (I assume the same will be true for M film bodies); It does vignette noticeably (but not substantially) less on the viewfinder than the stock 12451 hood. Below are a few photos, showing: Front of camera with 12451 hood and 28 'cron lens focussed at infinity; Front of camera with 12451 hood and 28 'cron lens focussed 0.7 meters; Front of camera with 12466 hood and 28 'cron lens focussed at infinity; Front of camera with 12466 hood and 28 'cron lens focussed at 0.7 meters; Viewfinder (partial view) showing intrusion of 12451 hood relative to 90mm frame; and Viewfinder (partial view) showing intrusion of 12466 hood relative to 90mm frame.
  11. Ronald beat me to a reply. Additional information: I think this a Datsun 1600 Roadster.
  12. UliWer, Thanks. Just the information I was looking for.
  13. UliWer, Thanks for your replies. I appreciate that you have your own schedules, and cannot be expected to be exclusively a responder to others' interests. re: " though I am not sure about what you want me to measure on those photos: overall length on camera with hoods, diameter of the hoods on the front and from the rear?" - what I am most interested in is relative viewfinder blockage with the 12541 and 12466 hoods. That is, does the 12466 hood intrude noticeably less on the 28mm viewfinder frame than the 12541? From your photos, it appears that for length the 12466 is about 2mm "shorter" when mounted on the lens than the 12541 (about 75mm overall lens + hood vs. about 77 mm for the 12541). But I can't tell about viewfinder intrusion - the round 12466 with the curved slot vs. the rectangular 12541 with the cutout. I apologize for pursuing all these detailed questions, but it's important to me - especially considering the extremely high price for the 12466 (even if one can be found). Again, I appreciate all the time you have spent on this subject, and the insights you have provided.
