  • The Leica Summilux-TL 35/1.4 ASPH review

    The Leica Summilux-TL 35/1.4 ASPH review

    The more time I spend with the CL, the more I love it. Even though the M is small and (relatively) light, the CL is smaller and considerably lighter even so. Coupled with the wonderful 18/2.8, it fits in every jacket pocket. In comes the Leica Summilux-TL 35/1.4 ASPH. I heard good stories about this […]

  • The Leica APO-Summicron-M 90/2.0 ASPH review

    The Leica APO-Summicron-M 90/2.0 ASPH review

    A few weeks ago I received the The Leica APO-Summicron-M 90/2.0 ASPH lens from my friend Maarten from the Analogue Camera Store. He just got it in and was curious if I would like the lens. Before we start: I’m not a big fan of 90mm lenses, even though I have two myself. The reason: […]

  • The Leica Elmarit-TL 18/2.8 ASPH review

    The Leica Elmarit-TL 18/2.8 ASPH review

    Like many other Leica fans, I laughed a bit when Leica introduced the first Leica T. Polishing a piece of aluminum for 45 minutes by hand? It wasn’t my cup of tea, but now, years later, I realize that the T (or the TL and TL2) are actually pretty good cameras. It all started when […]

  • The Leitz Summicron 35/2.0 V1 (M3) goggled review

    The Leitz Summicron 35/2.0 V1 (M3) goggled review

    You might have seen one of these funny looking goggled lenses on a Leica meeting. I never thought these lenses would make your camera look better, but even if you agree with me on that, there is still a pretty good reason why these lenses deserve a place in your gear cabinet. They are sharp […]

  • The Leica Summicron-M 28/2.0 ASPH review

    The Leica Summicron-M 28/2.0 ASPH review

    A few years ago, the Leica Summicron-M 28/2.0 ASPH was the fastest Leica 28mm you could get. Now that the Summilux 28 is also available, the 28 Summicron is nicely positioned between the 28 Lux and 28 Elmarit. While the 28 Cron has some features from both the 28 Lux and 28 Elmarit, it would […]

  • What’s up on the gear news?

    What’s up on the gear news?

    Well, lots of reviews to be published, but I’m also in the middle of my wedding season. Being a photographer is still my job, so you’ll have to be patient I’m afraid… What to expect in 2015? At least these lenses will be reviewed: Leica 28/2.8 Elmarit (Just buy it already, it is that good!) […]

  • The Leica Summicron-M 90 pre-ASPH review

    The Leica Summicron-M 90 pre-ASPH review

    The Leica Store in Lisse is like a toy store for photographers: tons of lovely cameras and lenses that are for sale (or not). They were kind enough to let me try this Leica Summicron-M 90 for a few days and although I didn’t have much time on my hands, I decided to give it […]

  • The Leica 50 summicron review

    The Leica 50 summicron review

    If I were to take one lens only to a random place, it would probably be this lens. The Leica 50 Summicron is all you could ever want as a documentary, portrait, wedding and street photographer. I could end my review with that, but I think you might like to know why I love the […]

  • The Billingham Hadley Small review

    The Billingham Hadley Small review

    The Hadley series is one of the most popular photo bags for rangefinder shooters. Almost every Leica shooter seems to own one of these bags in his or her photographic career. And for a reason: the Hadley is one of the most versatile bags you can buy. It is light, stylish, very sturdy, waterproof and […]

  • The Voigtländer 21/4 color skopar review

    The Voigtländer 21/4 color skopar review

    When I changed to my leica set, I wanted to use as little lenses as possible. I had gotten sick and tired of my DSLR kit and I would not make the same mistake of buying too many lenses for my M9 again. Also, I didn’t want any extreme lenses, on both the wide angle […]
