^haha yeah most of the time I use my X100s(35mm) or my M6(50mm) for street, the EOS3 is only for when I'm bored and mainly looking to get some street fashion. I tried using the Sigma 50 on it but didn't really like the performance.

another camera that I enjoyed using in the street is my friends Pentax 645N which is even bigger than the EOS3+135L but so awesome

M6 and 50mm is classic! Respect!
Trying to sell some photogear I'm not using often to be able to afford my first real L.

Disagree, if we're just talking SLR lenses. The 85L and 135L are extraordinarily good.

Overall, though, there are many rangefinder lenses that beat the pants off of any L lens.

Ahhhh. Then I REALLY disagree. There are many excellent non-Leica rangefinder lenses (the CV Nokton 50 1.5 being a prime example). But generally speaking, the Leicas are better. Overpriced? Almost certainly. Overrated? Not in the slightest.

The 50 Cron ASPH APO, 50 Lux ASPH, 75 Lux, 35 Cron ASPH FLE, 90 Cron APO...these are the best lenses you can buy in these focal lengths. They're hideously expensive, and probably not worth the premium over the Zeiss or CV equivalents in most cases. But they're unquestionably better lenses...just poor value.

As for the cameras, the film Leicas are unmatched; unparalleled. There really is no better film-based tool for street photography.

The digital Leica Ms are...less impressive, at least to me. They are not technically brilliant (with the possible exception of the Monochrom), and again are hideously expensive for what you're getting. My personal feeling is that as nice as it is to shoot with a Leica, they're not nearly worth the premium over far less expensive cameras that can produce as good or better image quality.

I'm happy with Jupiter-8 and the only lens from Leica I could afford is old LTM 35 3.5.
These two lens - I could see how good they are of b/w film.
But latest Leica glass on their digital - nothing special to me at all. Just like L glass from Canon. Very good, but kind of neutral.
Thinking of old Leica body, after I hold it in my hands two days ago at DownTown Camera for first time.
I didn't know they are steps away from Henry's.

No question, older lenses have more 'character'. If that's what you're going for, then pick up a 50 Elmar, Summitar, or even a collapsible Summicron.

A bit new here in this part of the forum. I'm mainly from the digital generation. Regarding film, I only played with some 35mm RF's a bit, but I recently picked up an RB67 and had the chance to try it out on a shoot for the first time this week.
First time shooting medium format, and first time doing an entire shoot on film. Kinda strange, not being able to chimp when you're used to it. Gonna do it more often though, it was a joy to work with such a huge mechanical beast compared to modern plastic toycamera's :D
