I've recently picked up a M 50 f1.7 and am really enjoying it.. great lens!
Here is something I went out and did today (400 frames later)
Mt. McPherson 50mm f1.7 Time Lapse - YouTube
Very nice work. The M50 f/1.7 is my favourite 50mm, even though I also have the A & FA versions.

Here's my contribution. M50 f1.7
Great idea. Maybe a touch cooler WB would be good.

Made extensive use of the M 1:2.8 28mm for the first time last week. This is from Joshua Tree National Park:

I didn't realize that the Alamo had been moved to Alaska. I've been writing music for a film trailer set at the Alamo that opens with Davy Crockett playing his fiddle by firelight as dead soldiers lay around the grounds of the Alamo after battle. Some of them aren't actually dead, they are zombies soon to come to life.

That's a good shot. I like my M28s, both 2.8 and 3.5...

One of my first macros with my M50/4macro. handheld at 1/15 sec, 1600iso and f8 IIRC. I think it was about 1:2.75 mag. It would definitely be nice to have a K5 for indoor macro. I did have a DIY led ringlight and a bright lamp nearby.

And here are some with the M28 which spent most of the fall in the cabinet in favor of the K24/2.8.

This was linked from T.O.P. (The Online Photographer) today - kinda neat. (I think John Flores was partially responsible for bringing the image to Mike's attention?)

Sure it is possible, and I looked at an adaptor to give my BIL for christmas, but the more I looked into it the less appealing it became, because none of the adaptors available have the focus coupling needed for the rangefinder. as a result you have to set focus manually......and HOPE

It does however offer the ability to play with other glass in a limited manner, but the only question I have is, would anyone with a leica actually admit to doing this? I mean if you can shell out the bucks for the body in the first place, 2K per lens is not all that bad is it?

also, and I would need to play with my BIL's camera to see how it responds, but the digital bodies have a special sensor, with the lenses offset in a radial pattern as you move away from the center of the lens, because with Leica lenses, and the much shorter regestration distance, vignetting due to accute angle incident light was an issue. now put a lens with a longer regestration distance and less acute light , how will that behave?
