Nothing to do on a lazy Sunday. Stucked at home with baby girl, so I used the natural light from my window bay to take these pics.

my Leica MP and R4s using my Canon 5dm2 with 35 Summicron-R f2.0 lens.

New to me M3 enjoying some nourishment during her 1st outing this weekend. Being in the hands of a noob is hard work

just acquired this. wanted to use it as spares for a wrecked m3 but it'll be such a crime!


wear on the lens:


wear from the film spool:


wear from all the winding:

wear on the vulcanite and top/bottom plates where the right hand would be:


someone told me that i can change the vulcanite.. NO WAY! it's still working fine and it's by far the smoothest m3 i've had.

Maddoc,

Nice night shooter that you have there! Is that the hood from the Summicron 35mm you have on your Summilux? I have tried this hood on my lens but then I couldn't fit a filter. How do you get around this? Do you see more flare control using this hood?

Cheers,

Simon

Simon, thanks !!

That's the hood of a 35/2.0 ASPH mounted on my 35mm Summilux-M pre-ASPH. I glued a rubber o-ring into the hood to hold an E39 UV filter. Cheap and works well, some slight vignetting, though. Flare nearly disappeared using this hood.

The idea is not originally from me, Thomas (thomasw) suggested to try it.

Cheers,

Gabor

Nope, just borrowing it until my M7 comes back from repair. Quite flashy, eh?

I am trying to figure out if a M7 is really worth it... I fear to face disapointement in term of reliability in the long run which I must say this M4 has proven to be a tank solid picture machine.

Thanks Volodimir.

The frameline mod was done by Don (DAG) during the ownership of second previous owner. I got this beauty from an RFF member mainly because of this mod. I always wanted clean 35/50 framelines, but ŕ la carte wasn't my option for obvious financial reasons.

The covering job was done by me last night.

new, to me, Elmar 90/4 (thanks fbf) and M2. both arrived yesterday. posing with my rather forlorn looking sekonic L-398. Dropped it 25 years ago. Missing a chunk on the rotating head, but appears to still work. Maybe it's now time to send it off for a repair?


Guess I also need to buy some unexpired film since I have no idea whether what's lying around is from this centery or last.

My late model M6 classic with 50 Summicron, Luigi case, 28 color-skopar (that I no longer own), and 1950 90 Elmar. I'm a 50 shooter who occasionally likes a 90. Sold my Tele-Elmarit last year. Very prone to flare. Still needed a 90 so I took a chance and picked up the Elmar from the auction site. Slow? Yes. Lots of brassing. Someone's name engraved into the side. Price? $16. What a great little lens. Small too. Size of a gherkin.

A camera shop in the mall that is a dealer for Artisan and Artist had this camera purse (it is not a bag meant to carry a camera)....Don't be confused by the white strap in my girlfriend's hand, she is holding two things at once...the lens on the bag actually sticks out from the bag, but the angle of this photo makes it hard to tell...anyways, it looks pretty cool, "in a cute girl kind of way"...it costs 200usd....wow.....anyways..here it is...



cheers, michael
