The Leica 75mm Summarit – back again.

Leica Summarit 75mm.

A few days ago, I hinted that a second lens would soon be joining my newly-acquired Leica M-E, and it arrived today.

Yes, the Leica 75mm Summarit is back (and it joins my 35mm Summarit for a 35/75 set-up).

My detailed report on the Leica 75mm Summarit is here.

Toothless and cyanotic.

One thing about the 6 x 7 format I really appreciate is that everything is depicted in a “grand” way (even blue tongues!) and truer to life vs. the 35mm format.

The effect is always visible to my eye, but becomes more apparent  when comparing images from the two formats in a side-by-side fashion.

Man, oh man, that sweet M9/M-E CCD.

Okay, I’ve made no secret of my appreciation of film over all things digital.   I’ve always felt this way, but as I’ve gained more and more experience over the years with digital and film images from various gear, that appreciation has only grown.

Similarly, in returning to the Leica M9/M-E a few days ago, my appreciation for that magical Kodak (now Truesense) CCD has grown.  After photographing with various CMOS sensor-based cameras this past year (including the Sony RX1R, Leica M240, Nikon D800E, and Nikon Df), I can honestly say that the CCD sensor in the M9/M-E is still superior to them all.

Bitter-Sweet.

Do any of you go back and look at your old photographs?

I rarely do (something about the passage of time gets me down).

No, I make images for others.

The act of photographing, however… I’m pretty sure I do that for myself.

M-E, myself, and CCD.

“Why don’t we take off alone,
Take a trip far, far away,
We’ll be together on our own again,
Like we used to in the early days…”
