Zeiss Loxia 25mm f/2.4 Review, Sony a7R III thoughts, and Farewell Leica – for now.

Over the past year, I’ve been primarily shooting with the Leica M262. It’s been a lot of fun, I’ve captured some great images, and I’ve really enjoyed using manual focus and compact lenses. During that […]

1970s Leica Leitz Canada 90mm Tele-Elmarit-M f/2.8 Review – Part Two

This Presidents Day weekend, our family headed down to Long Beach, WA. Time to bring along the 90mm Tele-Elmarit-M f/2.8, and test out this lens some more. Previously, I wasn’t too impressed with the sharpness […]

1970s Leica Leitz Canada 90mm Tele-Elmarit-M f/2.8 Review

I already have a 75mm APO Summicron lens that I am quite pleased with. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to own a 90mm APO Summicron as well ($4,200 new). Since a new 90mm […]

Leica 28mm f/2 Summicron – First Images

28mm is a bit wider than I’m used to shooting, but I’m really starting to enjoy the focal length. As far as the lens is concerned, it’s definitely one of the sharpest lenses I’ve ever […]

My Leica 75mm f/2 Summicron ASPH arrived – Thanks Ken Hansen!

I’ve been looking for a good deal on one of these and ended up getting my used copy from Ken Hansen out of New York. Steve Huff Photo has recommended Ken for years, and so I […]

Lens Authority and Leica 50mm f/1.4 Summilux review.

The Leica bug strikes again! This time, I needed a fast 50mm to complete my kit. There’s a lot of choices for the M mount in regards to a 50mm focal length. However, really only […]

Leica M (Typ 262) and Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm f/1.4 ZM Review

WARNING — ARTICLE INCLUDES CAT PHOTOS! Why am I writing about the Leica M262 in May of 2017 when the M10 is out? Well, it’s because of the M10’s lack of availability. My guestimate is that it’ll […]
