One of the big things that concerned me about the Zeiss 50mm ZM Sonnar before I bought it, at least in terms of its handling, was its focusing nubbin.
I realised the other day that I haven’t yet posted any photos I’ve taken with my Leica M5. So since just in the last few weeks I’ve shot a couple of rolls with it, I thought I’d share a few of the results.
If you ask me, on any given day, “what’s in your jacket pocket?” the answer is likely to be “that’s none of your business.” Then again, if we’re on more personal terms, I’ll conspiratorially lean over, and pull out my everyday photographic weapon of choice: the Minolta Riva Mini.
The regular reader will be aware that my wife recently gave birth to our second daughter, Norah Dali Gill.
A good mate of mine, Gianni, is setting up a company to sell high quality weight lifting apparel. As part of his bid to sell this apparel he needed a brand and website setting up. Since I own a company, F8 Creates, that creates brands and makes websites he came to us. As part of that branding process he needed some photos, so up step me with my Leica M3, 50mm Sonnar and a roll of HP5.
I’ve got a whole bunch of photos back from the Sonnar – I’ve sent 6 rolls shot with it to AG over the last few weeks and the first of them came back today. This first set are a fairly Connie focused bunch as they were mostly shot over the first few days I had the lens whilst just knocking about with the family.
