Leica M-E | First Test Drive

I received my Leica M-E yesterday and did a box opening video that I also posted yesterday.  Here are a couple of my first images that I want to share with the new kit.  My Leica 35mm Summicron acted like a 50mm lens on my Ricoh GXR-M.  Of course now that I’m using it on a FF (Full Frame) camera body it “acts” the way it should.  I will have to readjust my eye while framing an image to get used to the wider FOV aspect!

A couple wow factors for me already and which I expected is the really bright viewfinder, shutter sound and the overall feel of the camera.  I like how it hangs off my shoulder with the factory strap.  My GXR-M with EVF attached was kind of a pain as the EVF stuck out and would snag on whatever I was wearing.

  1. Congratulations to your new purchase, hope it will be a great tool and allow you to enjoy it for a while.

    Some very nice first pictures and I agree that the 2nd is a really nice picture and I also like it best. I think the fog in today’s picture works better but other than that both cameras seem to render b&w images very similar and shows that a lot of the character comes from the lens.
