I've kinda stopped shooting actively for a few years. Recently, prompted by a friend, I decided to do a check on my lenses and cameras just to ensure they are working fine. Sadly, had to send a vintage Topcor 50 f2.0 and a Zeiss 21 f2.8 for CLA due to oil on aperture blades and a squeaky turning.
Wanted to use the M9 to check shutter speeds on my film bodies and realised it was displaying low battery warning despite a fully charged battery... which prompted me to go buy a new battery @ Leica store. Tried the M10 and M10P while waiting and realised how much I've enjoyed the Rangefinder shooting experience after doing a few test shots on the new Ms.
To cut the long story short, I've since took out my M9 from retirement and bought me a new 35mm fast lens. I've always been a 50mm guy, but now that I'm older with deteriorating eyesight, I find the 35mm more forgiving.
Here's to hopefully many years more to come on my twice revived M9 (sensors replaced FOC twice in the past).
Good to be back!!
