Cool dirty M8. The lens filter, that is a necessity for the M8, comes in handy in a situation like your trip huh?

That's the way a Leica M8 should look like...

Has anyone put a black Leica logo on a silver body? I'm wondering how that would look, It looks great on a black body.

 

 

Looks like nobody has. I decided to see what it looks like on my own. Not bad at all. BTW, this is only a PSCS4 job. It still has its original Red Dot.

I just recently got back from ten days in Belize and Guatemala which inspired this little bit o' camera porn:

My new Leica M8.2 and Leica 50/2 Summicron is a fantastic combination for street shots

in San Francisco

 

Do you have a gallery of these? I'm always interested in other people's SF work. Thanks!

I know I already posted this one recently but I guess this is just the right threat to post it again:

Taken with the cheapest NIKON DSLR, the D3000 with a 1.4/30mm Sigma... I like this combination, but I love my Leica

Hi all,

 

I only recently bought into a Leica M system. Managed to secure a used M6 black in a very good condition with a 90mm summicron type II (i think) at Aperture and then was lucky enough to spot a very very good deal for an M8 with a 35mm cron APSH at RG Lewis.

 

I've primarily been a Nikon guy, but so far a week with the Leicas have changed my life - for one, I can actually carry the camera with me everyday, the D700 was much too bulky. The M6 has smoother operation, smooth shutter release, quieter shutter and a more 'solid' feel and I've never had so much pleasure taking pictures than with the Leicas.

 

With the M8, I was amazed with the sharpness and clarity of the files, at base ISOs, they beat the D700 hands down, and maybe it is just me, but I feel that the M8 records more balanced colours compared the the Nikon - but this is just a visual indication.

 

Anyway I am attaching some pictures of my new babies, one of which is the obligatory self portrait shot! Also posted more pictures of the cameras on my website here: My Leicas. | Kang : Photographer . I am very happy to be a Leica user now and will try and be more engaging in this forum.
