So the M9 is here and in action. Summicron 50mm f/2 for everything. I’m stunned by the rendering and color…these photographs have soul!

I’m [very] colorblind, and tend to think photographically in black and white. Usually, I only leave images in color at the request of others, but the color rendition is stunning even to me. I’m used to heavy post processing and these images leave me wondering what to tweak (and in the end, just leaving them alone).

Nothing fancy, just a day at the antique shops and brewery of the Amana Colonies to put the camera through it’s paces. I’m learning the rangefinder as well as trying to remember to manually make my settings, so not everything is right yet, but this is already thrilling!
