The Chinese believe in recording their every family member in meticulously recorded detail. These records are kept at the family home for generations, usually tended by an elder. I was very privileged to be shown this families records and, after some persuasion, was allowed to take his picture. But he only allowed me a few seconds and I had to work with what was available for light. Hope you like it. M9 with 35mm Summicron IV. If people are interested, I can post more of these travel portraits on this thread maybe. Or each as a separate thread? Mod advice please!
Hi Guys, I'm new to this forum and although I spent few hours searching around relevant topics I couldn't make up my mind yet... so please convince me NOT to buy an M8. Here is the thing, I've used SLR / DSLR all my life, I mainly do street photography (not pro, just for fun) and recently I've decided to sell all my gear and get an X100. Best choice I've ever made (photography wise)... I love the X100 under every aspect and quirk... but it's slowly becoming "small" especially the crappy MF and no lenses. So I am thinking... let's get a M8, Leica has always been my dream but I cannot justify (from a money / usage perspective) a M9 and here comes my problem: 1) M8 is quite an old camera. 2) The image quality / iso performance are substantially crappier than my X100. Will I end up buying a used camera, spend 1.5gbp + a lens (was thinking of a 28 Ultron F2 or a 50mm Nokton 1.1) that will most likely perform worse than my X100. I love the Leica (idea) <- but I'm deeply worried i will regret it... So... please stop me now!!! Thank you all!
