It's a been a while since I posted - I've been in Norway for work but have been watching this thread and have enjoyed all the great shots. I left all my Canon gear behind and took only my Leica M. I brought it primarily to shoot interior architectural shots for the project I worked on and bought a Tri-Elmar 1:4/16-18-21 ASPH lens for this purpose. Also took my 35mm and 50mm Summilux lenses - a huge size and weight difference to the Canon gear. Don't get me wrong, I love my Canon gear, I just don't like lugging it all for travel. The Tri-Elmar has really impressed me, very sharp while small and light. I have the 14mm f/2.8L II USM and did a side by side comparison with the Tri-Elmar. The Leica lens was far superior. I've included a few shots from a day trip. Comments welcome.

Thank you airfrogusmc!

I sold my M9 a month ago and kept my lenses. Tried to use them on the A7R but it just wasn't the same as shooting with a Leica body.

Here's a pic of my new camera :)

can I ask a tech question guys (more for the street shooters out there):
what is the fstop you comfortably shoot at to get things sharp where you want them on the street, with everything around you moving, given Leicas manual focus ? just out of pure curiosity.

Hey Z. I shoot with a Leica MM and a 35 mm lens. I usually work at 1600 ISO or 3200 ISO and shutter speeds of 1/500 or faster. I use the depth of field scales on the lens and pre focus so all I have do is see the shot and shoot. There is no auto focus in the world faster than that. Usually at f/8 or f/11 sometimes f/16. It can take a little practice but once you get it the focus is dead on, the shutter speeds are fast enough to freeze and if you use the DoF scales and anticipate a little it works faster and better than any auto focus.

Mashimaro... SWEEEETTT...

I am planning on next year, by the end of the year, being completely over to Leica M. Even for my professional work. I shoot some work with my MM when we need B&W but still Canon for the color work.

I have been shooting all of my personal work with the MM for the almost 2 years now. Love it...

thanks A, that's kind of what I expected, f8 and up.
not that I can afford a leica right now anyway, but no way I'm letting my belowed 1.8-2.8 range go ;) its really difficult to shoot at 1.8, a bit less at 2.8, but I love it, plus my shutter goes into thousands at iso 100-400.

of course my 5d3 and 35L are big and heavy, eh. thats why I wont buy the sigma 50A, even its its better than canon 50L, its too big and heavy for me.
