Just got back from a month in the Philippines, Cebu Island from where my wife came -- we re-newed our wedding vows !! I took my LEICA M gear as it all packed into a small bag leaving room for a video camera too. I went to the Cebu Images camera club which meets only once a Month and was a 'Guest Judge' for a B&W 'people' print comp -- the members there are all successful well-off businesspeople and one had a LEICA M8 with 50mm f1.4 Summilux lens -- he let me actually HOLD it and take a SNAP of members at f1.4 no flash !
I took some B&W of them with my 1960's Zeiss Contina I also packed for B&W pics and a few colour with my M6 -- I have sent them prints -- maybe in a year they might arrive !
do you have images from your trip available? that sounds like a dream vacation there.
There are photos POSTED ABOVE in the Group Photos ! But nobody ever seems to look or comment and I give all the 'technical details' for interest !
I will look!!
