    Nice shots Aaron. I use an Leicameter on top of mine. I have to say that for 50mm, the M3 finder is hard to beat.

    They look great to me- the color shots are vivid. Are you scanning the images, or are they coming back on a CD from the developing service?

    those are online uploads from TheDarkRoom -
    i'll get the CD in todays mail - and i'll be able to compare the quality - i suspect the online stuff is preview grade and not full resolution that i'll see on the CD.

    and yes - i am thoroughly impressed by the color - naturally, it seems that digital is sharper but the film just looks far more natural - at least to my eyes.
    thanks

    Those images have a real film look. Quite a refreshing change from the crispy precision of digital.

    Wow, looks great. Can't wait to try my vintage Sonnars on the M5 with some Tri-X.

    I am scheduled for the Leica Akademie film workshop in April in San Francisco and still thinking about which lens to use. These make me itch to take a Sonnar instead of my 50 Cron or 35 Summarit.

    Last workshop I used the 1937 CZJ, so perhaps this time I'll use the J3.
