I’ve been asked this question a lot since I started shooting a Leica. It is often one of the first questions that comes up when I get together with other Leica shooters. The answer has typically been a rather short, 2 years. Suddenly this picture shows up when I’m going through some old scans. I […]Read More How Long Have You Been Shooting a Rangefinder?
I have a problem. Only one of my lenses is six-bit coded, and it’s the lens I use the least. My other two, the 35mm Summilux and the 50mm Summicron aren’t coded either so I manually code them via the menu.

The one thing that most people agree […]Read More The Leica X1 is Back!

One thing that makes it so appealing is that you don’t really matter to […]Read More Street Photography in New York City
