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!
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!
