Dinner with Friends


I went out for dinner with other members from my lab at work this evening.


I happened to have a Leica M9 in my possession this evening, so thats what I brought to dinner with a Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Biogon attached.


The M9 is kind of a pain in the ass to use. Its not the manual focusing thats the pain per say but all the bloody focus and recompose (because focus is always done at the center of the frame).


And the image quality at high ISO, though quite acceptable isn't going to give a D700, 5D2 anything to worry about.



That said, there's something so enjoyable about shooting with a Leica.


Alas no, I will still not be getting one, though one has to wonder what shooting with an M9 with a 21 f/1.4 Summilux is like...
