This is the first time since 2016 that I have dusted off Undisclosed Lens #1…. which I purchased for $88!
..like a actress during a rotating break! 🙂
Great use of light!
Nice that you still have the “Undisclosed Lens #1” around…
All you need now is an M9, and you’re all set!
(* whistles nonchalantly…)
No, no. I said goodbye to the M9 for good last year.
Perhaps one day a digital M will be mine again… maybe in 5 years or so.
I really miss having a digital M but I just don’t think that the “Leica tax” on the M10 is worth it, considering the current state of the art. One could argue that the Leica tax on the M9 wasn’t worth it either, but as I wrote in my open letter to Leica, at least the M9 gave you a unique look.
The M240, as I predicted from the outset, has been relegated to the dustbin of camera history.
If I sound like I am bragging on both counts, it’s because I am. I took a stance several years ago that was contrary to most reviewers (and in doing so took some heat for my beliefs). Time has ultimately proven me right. The M9 is still sought after, the M240 not so much.
On another note, thanks for your appreciation of my image. That Undisclosed Lens #1 always surprises me.
You’re right, and we knew that you weren’t just making it up. Prices for the M9 should be below $2,000 today, but they aren’t. Even the M8 is hard to find.
Hi Peter I got my M3 back from service at a similar time to your receiving your new camera. Been thinking about home development, encouraged by your Plustek which doesn’t seem to cost the earth. I seem to remember stumbling across your home developing instruction guide for a small fee somewhere but can’t think where the link was. Would it be possible for you to direct me to the right place. Also coincidently shot some snow shots today, first heavy snow in SE England for some time. Some on a Fuji XT1 and others on a M8, and the shots I liked best came from the M8. I don’t love the M8 VF though unlike the M3’s which is wonderful. .
Congratulations on getting back your M3!
I took down my instruction page for now (I do that sometimes when I’m busy), but here is the link:
Looking forward to seeing your snow shots, especially the ones from the M8!
Superb shot. That’s all I can say.
