Share some photos taken with your Leica M cameras!
Leica M8 with F-Mount 24/2.8 Nikkor.
1937 Zeiss 5cm F1.5, modified to Leica Mount, wide-open on the M8.
Leica M3 with 9cm F4 Collapsible Elmar, wide-open.
That space shuttle image... YOW!
The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in Wales with Leica M9.
Zeiss 18mm f2.8 Biogon
Zeiss 50mm f2 Planar
Multi-Image Panoramic Stitch created in PTGui. Summarit-M 90mm f2.5
Leica M8 with my 1956 KMZ 5cm F1.5 Jupiter 3, wide-open. The KMZ J-3's have German glass in them, this is one of the last. I modified this lens to focus to 0.8m instead of the normal 1m minimum.
On one of my first major photowalks with the M9, I grabbed this image with the Zeiss 25mm f2.8.

Japan was a very big test of my rangefinder skills. Sometimes I met the challenge, other times I didn't. This time I think I did. Zeiss ZM 21mm f2.8.

Coupled with the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.4, the M9 deals with night scenes very, very well.

I'm really enjoying the photographs on this thread - love seeing the different lenses employed, too. I am also so thankful that the Leica M cameras don't have autofocus so I can't be tempted.
Keep those photos coming!
Some real quality images on here!! Can't wait to post some from me when i get my new toy (possible X1)
Beautiful pictures. It is remarkable, how often the M-cameras are used with non-M lenses.
M5/Zeiss 50mm f/1.5 C-Sonnar @ f/5.6 I think
Also 1st image from my 1st roll of TMAX-100 I Developed tonight in Xtol 1:1 After 41 years !
Leica M9 (not mine, sadly!), Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 lens. Taken at the Leica Akademie, which I am just about to write up....
What I like most about this shot was serendipity: the eradicated graffiti appears to be smoke coming from the frog's cigar:
M5-User, you picked a real beauty for your first! Am I correct that the last time you developed any film was 41 years ago? One thing is for sure, you haven't lost your touch and that M5 is working beautifully for you. Welcome to SC!
Deirdre, I can see exactly what you mean about that expunged graffiti being Mr.Frog's smoke swirls, and I can't wait to read what you have to say about your Leica Akademie workshop - and that M9. Looking forward to more from you soon.
1930s Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm F1.5, converted to Leica Mount, wide-open on the M8.
Well I forgot to get Photoflo, so I have a few water spots
But,. Thanks.... I did my second roll today...still drying in the bathroom. I'll hit them with Edwal film cleaner in just a bit.... before I scan them tonight...
Yes: 41 Years.....
I'm impressed, as well as being excited for you! Let's see...I believe the last time I developed and printed from film was in - gasp! - about 1981. You do the math - and don't tell me.
Leica M2 with Voigtlander Nokton 35mm SC (the third one I developed myself:smile:
