  1. donald barnat

    Great work. Fantastic photos. Great eye and talent. But… a lot of these images, the color, etc. remind me of exactly why I sold my M9. Shooting an M7 now mostly with drug store color film. Waiting and hoping that an M10 will come along soon. Really special photos here though.

  2. Richard

    waiting for the day I can afford/justify an M9……I have an old M6 and 35 Cron, but got lazy with using film and waiting so now use an nx10 with the 30/2 pancake – actually surprisingly good BUT no Leica, and no inspiration to take photos in the same way. Thanks for the reminder

  3. Gene

    Great images. I have had my eye on the XPRO-1 for awhile. Guess I am going to have to trade in my X100 and trade up. Love the IQ it produces.

  4. Achim

    Absolutely great photos of life on NYC streets. Phantastic. I’d say if one looks closer the images by the M9 have a certain look to it that other digital images don’t produce. Have they been post processed? Great!!

  5. Simon Peckham

    What a fantastic series images, I really enjoyed viewing your shots of NYC, coming from Cambridge UK it gave me a really good view of the streets, wonderful shots of the variety in our society. fabulous work thank you for posting.

    thank you. i spend very little time on post-processing…i use Nik Collection or Alien Skin to get the look i want…and that’s it.

  7. tewfic el-sawy Post author

    thanks Larry…yes, that’ll be interesting. i already have seen some difference in my handling of the cameras. 🙂
