And God sent me lunch!, Wakra Port, Qatar, April 2014
Yesterday was one of the saddest days of my street photography life. My favorite camera, the Leica M-E that I take everytime I go out to shoot on the streets and my Summilux 50/1.4, which is probably the best ever lens made for the 35mm format were crushed cruelly in a freak incident. The pics in this post were two of the last ones I shot.
Feeling a little fishy, Wakra Port, Qatar, April 2014
I, generally, am not a big believer in gear that improves photography and sometimes feel funny when someone talks about being inspired by camera gear. After 9 months with my Leica I can now say that gear does exist that inspires and helps you become a better street photographer. And the Leica M series will be God-sent if you want to venture into street photography.
I am working on another long-term review of my Leica for street photography and so will rest all my arguments for that post. But in a single phrase, the Leica M-series is the best ever camera made for street photography. I don’t need to talk about lenses when talking about the M-series because I do not think there are bad lenses made for this series, but yet, the Summilux 50/1.4 may be the best ever lens made for street photography.
