    First negatives from new Leica........

    I just finished developing a few rolls that I took today to test out my new Leica MP/90mm APO.

    All I can say is.............................................

    WOW!

    Looking at them on the light box they are Tack Sharp!

    I'm going to try and print a couple tonight and I'll post 'em in the gallery.

    Some people will totally dismiss the leica optical 'mystique'. But once you try them, you 'get it'. Just wait until you see something from the 35 cron or lux.

    I was one of those people and I sure 'got it', almost fell off my chair looking at my first roll of film from an M6 28mm elmarit-M...

    I am afraid that I do not have an Xpan. I was looking at these before I purchased the Leica though.

    No problem

    I too would be very interested to hear from someone who has both cameras.

    I was very tempted to go with the XPAN II, but finally decided on the Leica.

    I would still like to get one eventually for the Panoramic format.

    Jim,

    I really like the work in your gallery. The thing I like about your photographs is that they look like so effortless to take, yet I know you need a good eye to recognize them in the first place.
