Walk with the M9 / M9-P – Summilux 50 ASPH combo

Hello Internet,

some time ago I grabbed my M9-P with the 50 mm Summilux ASPH attached to it and walked around my home town. Let me share here some of the pictures taken. They have been edited in Lightroom 4.

I have the camera always set to take DNG + black and white JPEGs. I usually edit them both (or copy the changes applied to the DNG to the black and white JPEG).

You can click them to get a larger view. Hope you enjoy.

Visiting „Schloss Esterházy“ with the Leica M9 / M9-P

Hello Internet,

recently I visited Schloss Esterházy in Eisenstadt as there are at the moment some very interesting exhibitions. Along I took the Leica M9 / M9-P with the Summilux-M 1:1,4/50mm ASPH. As it is only allowed to take pictures without a flash the 1.4 aperture comes in very handy, although I had to pump up the ISO in some situations.

Let me share some of the pictures taken. You can click them to enlarge.

LEICA Viewfinder Magnifier M 1.4x

Hello Internet,

my latest Leica purchase is the Viewfinder Magnifier M 1.4x. I hesitated a bit buying it but finally am very happy to have it now. Its a bit pricy – comes in for about € 250,–. Also I have not been sure if you see the 50mm frame lines, but after using it for some time I can tell you see them if you push your eye close enough to the viewfinder.

From the point of usability it is a thumbs up from my side. The rangefinder patch is much better to see and focusing speeded up.
