I Paid Artists $20,000 To Finish My Drawing...

Ever saw some kids in the Third World looking for their only meal of the day? I am German but have been living in Thailand for 17 years. I should be proud that Leica still produces in the country where it was invented, we lost TV, hifi etc long time ago to China. But these companies are still at the top of innovations regarding fuel efficiency, safety etc. I should be proud that Leica still produces in the country where it was invented.. No; the M9 body and rangefinder are made in Portugal, at the plant which Leica has operated there since The final -a-s-s-e-m-b-l-y- inserting the sensor and screwing in the rangefinder and then testing is done in Germany.

The cameras are produced in Portugal, and then calibrated and put into a cardboard box for shipping in Germany. Hi, yes, this is correct. I remember shooting, processing, printing contact sheets, and printing in a red light dark room. Digital media, today, gives us more choices after the shot. The choice is ours, as always has been. Do not criticize those who want to decide before shooting. We did it for many years and the arguments were long for either side. It is only a matter of choice and likes and dislikes.

If you want to choose between the Monochrome and the M9-P is a mater of taste and budget. I wish I had the option to choose. Others have. Let them Be. I would like you to let me be if had the money and I am pretty sure you would feel the same way…. I wish we had the chance, if only for 1 hour….. I already expressed my sadness about LEICA going back to its old behaviour and outmanouver themselves on the market. I really do hope they will make a meeting and talk and reflect honestly about all the negative feedback and start to be more reasonable — else they will be kicked out of the market and nothing less.

Leica is becoming more and more of a luxury cult and less and less of a camera company at all concerned with utility of their products. Steve, I am glad that you were able to experience Berlin and a Leica product release. I am a little concerned about Leica at this point. I am not a buyer for any of the three items that were released in Berlin. More personal impressions, which I find far more valuable than the charts and graphs. Price: Leica is clearly a premium brand and seemingly successful in selling their products at a premium price.

Not for everyone but if you can make the entry point and find value in what you get for the money spent, then buy and enjoy. For me, I like the concept of getting the images I want without compromise: no Photoshop plugin, no tinkering with more software. That the value aspect in my decision process. Will I buy an MM? Anyway, thanks for the effort to travel to Berlin, keep this web site operating and your insights.

Well I was told that, decades ago, a then brand new set of Leica camera plus a lens sold for almost the same as, if not higher than, a brand new relatively up market car. Thanks Steve for sharing the photos. Hm… just wondering what the results can be when this M9M is paired with the cron 50AA…. Steve, Thanks for the images and narrative. While this camera is quite simply not feasible for me to purchase until at least , at the soonest, it certainly has my attention, and I hope it remains in the Leica production line.

I believe in the merit of a sensor dedicated to, and optimized for, monochrome images. At least the Mono version is functionally different and offers something the stock M9 does not. Me neither. Thank you so much for this Steve! It is unthinkable that without these people Leica can enjoy the success they have today.

Or so they thought! And they are not going to sell this jewel at a loss. Same goes for the S2. Someone has to have the drive to create the best possible product. For some reason other samples are rendered very low contrast. You should never look at that thing except for menu adjustments and maybe histogram. Why do you need more resolution? For what? Boy, I did all the great photographers of the past survive and thrive with film, without looking at a stupid image 3 seconds after it was taken, on a tiny little screen.

For all of you who are saying that the high prices will do Leica no good in the end take a look at cars. Ferrari, RR, Bently, Maserati. Those are all brands that ask insane prices for there products and are doing well. And the average Ferrari consumer is no Schumacher. Leica is making the right choise in creating an exclusive brand for a nice market they only cater to.

The DR of the 5n can easily match anything a Leica puts out. I like the M9M but am more than happy with my M9, nice having the option for color even if the monochrome is not up to the standard of the M9M. I hope all the success for Leica but the M9M and apo summicron is not for me. Silly product really. Great image. So right Alex. Do Leica not realise the influence of Mr Huff. Leica is fighting two issues: the technical reputation and supplying the niche markets with great working tools. The Summicron was always held up as the best practical performing lens that could be made.

But for serious photographers they make gear that although expensive is within reach and does great work. The current Summicron 50 not asph is as good a lens as The M9M is similar — outstanding performance, but for a very limited market. With low volume it will be expensive, but within reach of those who would consider a Leica M for serious use. The new Summicron would be wasted on me — the old is good enough. But my M4 and Tri-X are still working after 44 years! Do we have a statement from Leica that the current Summicron will not be discontinued when the new one starts production?

The Technical data sheet on the Leica website for the new APO summicron on the very first line no less explicitly states the old Summicron is still available. People getting worked up over this lens need to realise the APO isnt a replacement for the 50mm Cron workhorse. Those who can afford it will by it, but the old cron will soldier on for those with unlimited budgets. Thank you Zorg. We will have to wait to see the results. But… they seem to be very exciting new cameras. I wonder if Leica will offer a conversion package from M9 to M9Monocrome?

EG swap the sensors and software. This would be a way of getting the new quality without the huge cost. Remember after things went autofocus and digital Leica was pretty much dead in the water… So kuddos to them for that!

My one hour with the new Leica Monochrome by Steve Huff

But seriously, a MONOchrome camera?? And at a pricetag that most of us have to save a half a lifetime for? Not because of the quality but because of the price-tags and the realisation that you can achieve great pictures with other equipment as well and there are more than plenty examples to prove my statement.

Apart from that the fact you walk around with an Olympus OM-D and a Voigtlander in Berlin right now just proves my point as well ;-. Have a great time in Berlin, it is a fantastic city and I will be visiting it again as soon as I get the chance. You are right photography is an emotion but I do not think using a MM in any way degrades that and in most cases probably enhances it. If this camera came out instead of an M10 I could understand the widespread unrest but that is most likely not the case and the M10 will come out as planned.

There are some stances I understand when it comes to this camera the most glaring being that everything about the camera is 3 year old technology so when the time comes for the M10 this guy will automatically feel dated. Hey Steve,these are the best pics you have posted on the site. Even the bike has SOUL!! In contrast [no pun intended] the OMD shots looked clinical to me.

Prices like these make me wonder. Thanks Steve for your usual balanced reviews, a pleasure to read. Photographically irrelevant but part of the scene for me! Sorry you had such a hassle with the net. I think it is the law of diminishing returns but as long as there is a return there is place for Leica, pushing the envelope of what can be done with metal and glass.

That said I wish I could afford one someday. These are some of your best photos! I love the one of the girl on the bike with the phone to her ear.. The first image has so much subtle emotion to it and the photo of the dog just pops off the screen. I know my opinion is just one of many but I do research photography as part of my work so I definitely speak from experience. So until Photokina comes around I will hold off judgement.

I really hope you are able to review this camera but until then congrats on the pictures, I think they are really special. I like the look of the noise, better than the grain of my film after going through my crappy scanner. Steve, thanks for your wonderful efforts during what must be a stressing and frustrating time. To not give you a MM for your stay is unforgivable. Now if we can shoot like Robert Doisneau we will never need the MM. I remember mortgaging my soul in to buy my first Leica, an M4-P, and I shot thousands of rolls of tri-x in it.

Quite disappointed that Leica chose to spend its time developing this camer when they could have spent the time and money to develop a better M for the people who depend on the camera to make a living. I would love to have this IQ, but my clients demand color. Makes you think differently. Seldom any smaller than f2 and compensate with the ND filter if to bright. If you have a X try it out. Kind of creamy. Jeff, nah, you can achieve the same result in PP but with these settings I very seldom do any PP at all, I really like the outcome.

Approaching your target with another mindset. I seen some shooters also advocates to set contrast to a higher level to mimic tri-x. Honestly, it is a modified sensor which simply with the color arrays taken away. The manufacturing may not be as expensive as to product a color sensor. So what.

Get the regular Summicron, or a Zeiss Planar, and go have a good time. That might be nice. Or a Fuji XPro-1M. So for the new model to approach Noctilux pricing levels it definitely brings a stiff cough to ones throat. Summilux : 1. They are made up names with some Latin references. Just a willingness to learn. Thankfully thanks to their amazing quality the used Leica market will be alive and strong for the rest of my lifetime. I like the M9. I also like the M9M. But which do I prefer? Very interesting camera.

Very intriguing camera, hell.. When has the price of any Leica anything ever stopped you from being attracted to it? When was the last time you were not attracted to any Leica anything? Second — One look at your shots show why it would be foolish for Leica not to loan you some equipment. Your shots are outstanding and really make the camera more desirable. Although I must credit the DPReview samples for being some of their best yet.

The monochrome is way out of my budget, but the X2 might have a chance depending on if you can get your hands on it. I think this is something a lot of people may not know. I too appreciate the simplicity of it. Especially with the X But it works nicely with a DSLR too. Go on the social networks and look, the evidence is already there.

Beyond that common sense must prevail and I am out. Do the BW conversions straight out of camera on a M9 not even compare? If low light is not an issue, can you see a big difference in the way the sensor renders BW on this monochrome? Agree — to a point. Sean reid has done a comparison and you will be hard pushed to see a difference between the MM and M9.

Costs aside, I think cameras like this give new attention to the beauty of black and white photography in general even for us mortals who do their monochrome in Lightroom, Photoshop, etc. Very, very nice, but I would choose to shoot film and save a lot of money. Well, I guess you are right that he could afford it. I just think the Leicas at that time were maybe relatively cheaper but of course still expensive , but I may be wrong. Tried to find some information about prices in but were not able to find anything useful. Buy them now folks. I also fear what it means for the M10 pricing.

Enough about pricing… The Mono-M seem like a neat idea. Anyway Steve, it sounds like your trip has been a mixed bag of excitement, adventure and frustration. Continue having a good time, enjoy Germany and safe trip home! And thanks out to Jono and Sean for giving you a try on the Mono-M! I tend to think that faced with the shortage of product available in the market, Leica could decide to go one of two ways. Either ramp up production to meet the demand and thereby make lots of people happy, but dilute the exclusivity of their products, or just put up the price to reduce the demand and maintain their exclusivity, thereby pricing many people out of the market.

I think that they have chosen this second route by the pricing of these products. Now, if you make each one only sensitive to illumination, your actual resolution goes WAY up.

You see the same thing at the molecular level for film. So that justifies the camera…. This is a niche within a niche. Acrordingly, a digital product with this low volume is going to have really high manufacturing costs end of story. You want something truly special read unique , it costs money. No need at all for two expensive bodies, or really restricting myself to a totally mono world.

Could you point me to a site that has some images? That would be quite interesting. After shooting with an M8 for 18 months I have never once mistook a shot it produced as one from my M6. As Robert Y says there is no digital that compares to film but if there is one camera that is the closest it is the new MM. Well, an M8, perhaps. Besides film is its own archive. Hi Leica M6, how are you doing? Let me introduce you to two lovely ladies named Ilford and Kodak. Zeiss, your time has come, surely.

The market is now mature enough if we are seeing products like the M9M. Give the man-on-the-street a simple and affordable digital back to your Zeiss Ikon for your lovely Zeiss lenses. Democratise the digital RF. Better yet — a new Digital Ikon body at a reasonable price. Their M system is becoming an after thought to them. Fuji as made 2 cameras that fit this bill well enough. Get yourself an Xpro1 or an X and call it a day. I have an Xpro1 on my desk now borrowed and I am quite impressed.

I often find that the people who spend the most money on their cameras have weak portfolios and weak vision. If I had not purchased an m9p and the M mono was out. Enjoyed the report. You can imagine my surprise then, when I read your refreshingly neutral perhaps even bordering on negative review of the new Summicron. It was nice to see a level headed and sensible opinion, not weighted by wanting to remain in with Leica just so they still send lenses and bodies to review.

List of new features include clipping warning and new leatherette! I mean, come on! Leica are definitely aiming to be a luxury brand — they not hiding that, but when that comes at a cost of alienating hundreds, if not thousands of faithful customers, then thats the time to call it a draw. Pfft to that, I say. The New Leica can kiss my pasty white, worrying hairy ass. I do not see why needing methodical practice to master a camera like this is a bad thing. These are great pictures, but candidly, they are not pictures worthy of spending this kind of money on the camera.

Are you after excellence or almost excellence? I think the shots Steve posted are excellent and I challenge anyone who say they can reproduce the look of the shots by Jacob Aue Sobol on the Leica AG website with a color sensor. The truth is that a Hasselblad MF film camera loaded with Delta will still trump this camera with ease, resolution-wise, since MF film carries more than 50MP of data.

And forget about 4X5. Tomato — Tamoto.. Excellence lies upon the photographer not the machine. If what you are saying is true then why is it that not all Pulitzer prized photos are shot by Leica. Quite a few are taken by almost excellent Nikon and canons. Steve, in my mind you already have some redundancies in your current lineup of cameras.

The OM-D with all those lens should cover your color. So sell the M9-P get the monochrome, and keep like two lenses. One path to nirvana. I got to see the event via blackberry shots and posts from LeicaMayfair…about as live as it got! Fabulous sample pics Steve. Very impressive quality. No camera produces art, ever. BTW Did you talk to anybody from Leica why you did not receive any cameras for reviews. Maybe you just love other cameras as well too much or your site is not exclusive enough. Or they just reserve the big one M10 only for you.

Why does all the shots look like they are from 50 years ago… Maybe I should just convert my D40 sensor to black and white… that might be cheaper. You serious? It creates some nice output that looks really close to old HCB images. It is a tough call to make. I like the color that I get from an M9 and I like the option to use color or to convert to monochrome in post processing. But the detail of this thing may be really nice.

The question for me is if I can get something closer with the M But I have to say that the look of the camera is what I want from Leica. Just a black camera. I never liked the big engraving on the top plate of the M9P and mentioned that a while ago that Leica should have done a really stealth camera by just making it fully black. Now they have. I just wish a M10 would come in that look. RK PS I agree with you on the lenses.

I bet the Summilux with still have some great performance on whatever the M10 can offer. And I like the shallow DOF. Even the look of nikon V1 images is better. Some very nice images, Steve. More importantly, I appreciate the fact that you recognize Leica prices its gear out of range of most photographers.

That sort of understanding is why I enjoy reading your reviews. As for Leica, I recognize that it costs money to manufacture quality. But I cannot understand pricing the Monochrom well beyond the budget of the average user. If it was reasonably priced I would have one on preorder already. As it is I will have to live long enough to afford to buy one second hand. A troll pretending to be Leica. Kurt ,you need a sense of humor. Knock knock. Leica who?
