  1. The Big Apple Circus shot at 640ISO, M9p and a 35mm Summilux. 1/350th at F1.4.
  2. Hello, I am a long time Leica user, having owned two M3's, M6, R7, and various Digiluxes. Currently I use a X Vario. I am being offered a M9 at USD 3400. The seller will supply documentation proving the sensor has been replaced. Shutter count is approx 13000 (I checked by converting the Unique ID Hex number). By checking online via the serial number, it seems the camera is a late 2011, or 2012 model. I tested the camera with my own SD card, taking about 50 photos with a 50 Summarit, and a 35 Summiux. As far as I can tell, the camera in a perfect mechanical condition. The rangefinder is accurate, the shutter release is excellent, and metering is good. Cosmetically, the bottom edges are brassed, but the factory plastic covering on the bottom plate is still on so the rest of the bottom plate should be fine. There is light scruffing/brassing on other parts of the camera. My question is, should I buy this camera, which with a new 50 Summarit would cost USD 5200, or buy, at USD 5500, the M 262 Oberwerth Set (if I can get one) which consists of a M 262 + 50 Summarit + Oberwerth bag? The common sense says buy the M 262 Set, but I love the look of the photos from the M9, they are gorgeous! Simultaneously with the M9, I also took photos with a MP-240, and while the files from the 240 are excellent, I think the files from the M9 are special. I will not be using the M9 much at high ISO, so that is not a concern. Nor is the lesser buffer or writing speed a concern. I would very much appreciate your opinions on this. Thank you in advance.

  4. M9 Elmarit-M 90mm f/2.8 @f5.6 Capture One V11 A monochrome day that looked like it felt in the M9 natural colour palette. You have to admire Leica for their choice of colour parameters for this camera's output, it makes it effortless, I don't think I have ever found settings for the Nikon output as satisfying but reports are the new D850 is "different" in that respect. Get thee behind me. The green on the Trees is Lichen BTW.

    This image was taken just before my cardiac arrest in 2017. I am hoping to get back to this project as soon as I am allowed to drive again as I feel there is much more interesting work to do there. Leica M9 + 24mm Elmarit f2.8 @ 1600iso. Shot as .dng and converted in LR Classic. Gerry
  6. In the half term break I had a day where my son was at nursery and my wife at work. This meant I had a rare opportunity of having a day to myself. I had no idea what to do with myself. I decided to set off with the dog walking with the goal being to reach a local village called Affetside. The village is on the old Roman Road and has a lovely pub called the Pack Horse. My wife's family always called the The Pack Horse Inn "The Skull" as behind the bar is a human skull purported to be that of the executioner of the Earl of Derby. Anyway, I took along my M9 50 Summicron and CV15mm. The 15mm I am still getting used to and finding the best way to 'tame' it. I hope you enjoy the series.

  7. Hello, I plan to add a longer lens to my collection - a 75mm or 90mm. Currently, my longest lens is a 50mm. I am considering the Summarits - due to their nice rendering, low weight and attractive price (well, at least in the Leica bubble ). I would prefer 90mm for the longer reach, however I am a little worried about my focusing ability on a M9. Some experiments with a CV 90 Apo-Lanthar showed me that at least that lens is quite difficult to focus consistently on a body without LiveView. So, is there a significant difference in focusing ease between the 75mm and 90mm Summarits? Some other lenses to consider? --mk
  8. So should I dump my venerable M9? To try and help decide, I tried a quick, rough and dirty (i.e. non-scientific) shootout in a camera store. Using my own lens on each body, and then taking a quick snap as I would normally shoot and in difficult store shop lighting (against the light, mixed light - interior and exterior). The short answer is I'll be standing by the M9. But if you're interested in why, well the details and comparison images, unscientific and personally biased as they are, you can find on my FB page which you can visit by clicking HERE
  9. Bad weather I like. Well, for photography that is... It can make an otherwise dull place that little bit more interesting. My home town is decidedly dull. Even duller on a rainy day. But I managed to get three shots that was worthwhile. This one of them, hope you like it! (M9 with an old 35mm Summicron)

  14. Dear All al lot of discussion has been going on in this forum about GND filters. My question is not so much technical as to which brand my be best but rather about the practicability of use of GND on M9. I like to shoot landscapes and objects where I usually have some time. I would want to use a GND on a 21mm and 35mm lens, may be also on a 50mm. Also, a polariser seems to make sense. Given these side conditions these 70mm square contraptions look like the way to go. Perhaps someone is willing to share their first hand experience. Maybe, in theory all is very well, but if nobody actually uses such a setup although owning such a filter system, then that would be valuable information for me. Further, words of warning or things to consider would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! Tred

  21. Hi Leute, mein erster Post hier :-) Ich steh momentan total auf Spiegelungen und würde euch gern eines meiner letzten Bilder zeigen. Schaut doch auch gerne mal auf meiner Webseite www.markvolz.de vorbei, wenn ihr Lust habt. Die Seite beschäftigt sich eigentlich außschließlich mit meiner Sicht zur Street Photography. Würde mich freuen. Zum technischen Aspekt für die Interessierten: Ich hänge noch immer sehr an meiner Leica M9 und bin seit 6 Monaten mit der Challenge zugange, 1 Jahr lang nur 1 Kamera und 1 Objektiv zu nutzen. Das wäre dann für weitere 6 Monate das Summilux 35mm. Fragen, Anregungen, Feedback etc. ist gern gesehen. Liebe Grüße, Mark
  22. I recently collected my M9 body from Leica Mayfair, London, after sensor replacement. I was delighted to get it back, but on my first day shooting with it I encountered some problems. First, it froze when I took 3 single shots in quick succession. The red light flashed for 10+ minutes and an error message appeared - can't remember exactly what it said, but it referred to writing to memory. I left the camera alone, hoping it would eventually write to the memory card (newly formatted in-camera SanDisk Ultra 32GB SDHC I 40 MB/s Class 10). When I picked up the camera a few hours later the light wasn't flashing, but there was nothing on the memory card. Trying a second time, with the memory card formatted again, the camera worked but would only deliver DNG files. The menu allows me to choose between Compressed and uncompressed DNG, but no JPG option. The DNG files are satisfactory, image quality is fine, limited only by my own lack of ability ... It's several years since I had last used the camera because I changed to a Sony A7 before I sent the M9 for sensor repair, so I cannot recall how I originally set it to record RAW+JPG, and now I cannot see any such option on the menu. I find it difficult to believe the camera won't provide JPGs, so I must be doing something wrong. Any suggestions welcome.
  23. Hallo zusammen, weil ich die Idee, Vintage-Objektive an modernen Digitalkameras zu verwenden, interessant finde, habe ich zwei Wochen lang das Heliar 3,5/50 mm VM aus der Classic Line von Voigtländer an meiner M9 ausprobiert. Kurz-Bericht: Das Ding hat mir Spass gemacht. Vom Design und der Verarbeitung her ein echtes Schmuckstück, zwingt das Heliar zum entschleunigten Arbeiten ... im besten Sinne. Zusammen mit der M9 hatte ich das Gefühl, mit einer Kamera aus den 1950er Jahren zu arbeiten (noch mehr als sonst, wenn ich mit der M9 fotografiere ). Die Bildqualität war top. Kann ich das Heliar grundsätzlich empfehlen? Ja und Nein. Wer hofft, dass das Objektiv den Bildern einen Vintage-Look vermittelt, wird enttäuscht. Das Ding ist einfach zu gut. Noch immer ein 5-Linser wie der klassische Vorgänger, aber völlig neu berechnet. Sehr gute Schärfe bereits bei der (mässig lichtstarken) Offenblende, farbneutral wirkendes Rendering, kaum erwähnenswerte Abbildungsfehler. Lediglich Vignettierung, aber das stellt ja heutzutage kein Problem mehr dar. Manch einer wird sich also fragen, warum man sich unter diesen Umständen die "Vintage-Arbeitsweise" mit geringer Lichtstärke, gemeinsam drehenden Blenden- und Fokussierringen und dem Blendenring ohne Raststufen antun muss. Wer es dagegen liebt, old style zu arbeiten und dennoch seinen Objektiven zeitgemäße Leistung abverlangt, wird mit dem Heliar sicher glücklich. So ganz nebenbei hat das Ding auch noch ein vergleichsweise geringes Eigengewicht und eine sich nach vorn verjüngende Bauform, die den Sucher nicht abdeckt. Nachfolgend noch ein Bilder, die ich mit dem Heliar gemacht habe.
