Getting back into Film Leica boss!

  1. I agree with you on the Leica R8 and R9 — big, heavy, and ugly. I sold mine after a relatively short while and went back to the Leica M family.

    Congrats on your new toy; I’m looking forward to seeing images from it!


  2. You have assembled a very versatile outfit, a 28, 50, 90, and 135. The first 3 are described as the “photojournalists trinity ” for obvious reasons. I find the 135mm f2.8 very useful for picking interesting faces out of a crowd. Although a zoom lens covering all these focal lengths is available in many makes, zoom lenses are still slow, typically f3.5-4.5. In poor light the pair of f2 might mean the chance of getting a shot where a slower lens would cause camera shake. I use a Leicaflex SL with Schneider Kreuznach P A Curtagon 35mm f4 shift lens for street and architectural shots and a 135mm f2.8 Elmarit R (Canada) for portraiture.
