  1. There must be times, Peter, when the M3 and film seem like everything you need. Such an elegant mechanical marvel. So few distractions.

    If I was just a little less honest with myself about the degree of my laziness, I might even talk myself into it. Ah… fortunately, I still have you guys’ images to enjoy. Love the seemingly quirky composition here, which in reality is quite classic.

    1. Yes, the M3 + film represents all I would ever need/want. However, the whole support structure around film developing has vanished which leaves me stuck with home-developing. I’ve certainly done it, and I’ve taught others how to do it, but I can’t rely on that process for my daily photography… life is too short to spend in the basement mixing reagents…

  2. Fantastic shot, as are all of your shots. I’ve been investigating this lens and a few others that wide and really can’t wait to get one. It’s either this one or the 25mm 2.8. You make this one look very very tempting.

    1. Thanks Donald. Either of those two focal lengths should serve you well (but they differ in the way they dictate how you compose a scene, despite their deceptively similar FOV).

      I haven’t had the pleasure of using the Zeiss 25/2.8, but can state with certainty that the Zeiss 21/2.8 is a great lens. And, if you recall, I’ve used both the Leica 21/1.4 and 24/1.4 extensively – so that statement is backed by a considerable amount of shooting experience.
