I was interested in playing with a Leica M4, but the real one, the one that came out before the M4-2. I was lucky to find one in decent shape... but didn't have the cash for another 35mm lens (which is my favorite focal length), so I took out the bag my very underused 50mm Summicron and attached it to this new body.
It was a revelation...
Here's the proof:
|This is Washington Street, in Naperville, at Christmas time (1/60th, f2)|
|My son on a Santa Claus lap (1/15th, f2). He got some candy...|
|This is Washington Street, but in Chicago (1/60th, f2)|
|Art Institute lion, from Chicago (1/1000th, f8-11)|
What's your favorite focal length? Do you feel that it's the only creative avenue for you? Have you "forced" yourself to use something different... just to stretch your creative muscle?
