It was a dull lunchtime earlier in the week as I walked around Lincoln with my camera. As usual I had my Leica M8 but instead of the 35mm lens I was shooting with the 50mm for a change. Set to f/8 and zone focusing it is often more luck then judgement that I get a photograph.
Zone focusing is something I keep practicing but if its too wet as most days are this winter then the camera stays in its bag. When I get my Leica M10 i’ll not be quite as precious, but getting used to the different field of view will be an issue. The Leica M8 has an APS-H sensor so a 50mm looks more like 65mm and the 35 more like 45mm.
I may end up walking the streets with a 35mm and a 90mm, with the 50mm lux (f/1.4) in my bag for when I go indoors and the light levels drop.
