congrats to Leica for coming full circle :)
finally a full frame M series digital camera release today - Leica M9 -
this is the company that gave us 35mm photography with the first pocket size camera the - UR leica -

the UR Leica can be seen in Leica's museum in Germany, 2 of these camera was hand made by its designer Oscar Barnack around 1912-1913 one of them is still missing...

the camera in the photo is my Leica IIIf Red Dial, a close descendant of the UR leica, same basic size and collapsable lens but with a coupled rangefinder, removeable lens and slow speed (below 1/30)

the photo is shot with a Ricoh GR3
canon 430EX flash on remote trigger
1 reflecter on the left

testing the new GR3 :)

well done.... I love leica lenses... I used to have one with my lumix fz20 and it sits in f2.8 in all focal length... beautiful shot of a classic camera...

Hi Koh,
A wonderful close capture with stunning details and a excellent angled composition. I love what I am seeing inside the lens. The chosen DOF is wonderful and gave great focus without making detaisl unkown.

I like the mixture of b&w, & the colour on the reflections within the lens. Good use of a shallow dof with a wonderful tonal range. Tfs!

excellent lighting Koh, i heard this one is a great performer. one that is light and portable but with high quality images,


i a n

Good focus, all details visible!
But what I like most about it, is the reflections in the lens: like a window to photographer's mind.

P.S. I always wondered why Leica. In Russian "leyka" is the thing for watering in the garden ))
