Fun Friday Links! June 4th 2010

Fun Friday Links, June 4th 2010

Wow, it’s already Friday. This week flew by but that was probably because I have been busy morning till night getting settled in our new house. Yep, I am officially moved and settled near Phx, AZ. The furniture has been delivered, the boxes have all been unpacked and just last night I finished putting together my new desk so I can finally sit down in comfort and work! This morning I will be heading out in search of cool photo opps with the new Fuji RF I am testing, but I will also be shooting another new camera that was sent to me from Leica. More on that one later 🙂

For now, here are some cool links I would like to share for today, enjoy!

The Reviews On This Site – EZ access.

First  things first. I have been getting quite a few e-mails recently asking me when I am reviewing the Pentax K7, or the E-PL1, etc etc. For those who are not aware, you can access ALL reviews by using the tabbed nav bar at the top of any page. For example, click on “reviews & more” and a drop down box will appear. You can choose Leica, Nikon, Canon and All Other reviews. They are all listed there. Another option to browse every article ever posted on this site is to click on the “sitemap” tab. You will see a complete index of all posts. Also, do not miss the “must read articles” page which is also under the “reviews & more” tab. Thanks!

Used Deal Alerts

First, I just found this used deal at B&H for a Leica 35 Summicron ASPH, 6 bit coded with case and hood – $1979 which is a $100 savings from new. These ALWAYS go fast, so if you are looking for a 35 cron, act fast!

Can’t believe no one has snagged this yet! A Leica Noctilux F1, in box with hood for $4495. A “9” condition and returnable if not as expected! If I had the cash I would buy it now as I have been seeing these go for $5k-$5500 over the past few weeks, many without box.

A reader of this site is selling her M9 setup which is like new. Check out her ad in the buy/sell!

Also, I have an Olympus 14-42 M4/3 Zoom for sale – $90 gets it. V/MC accepted! E-Mail me if interested.

I WANT THIS CAMERA! At only $130 USD, its a steal even if it is all plastic.

In case you missed it, Leica is offering a cool trade in program for their S Series lenses for those wanting to upgrade their lenses to the leaf shutter versions. Check it out HERE.

Everything you ever wanted to know about spot metering but were afraid to ask.

Shelby Lee Adams, interview coming in 2-3 weeks!

NYC – This makes me want to head back there for at least a week. When I do go back I will be well prepared for a weeks worth of shooting.


  1. Steve, can’t wait to read the Shelby Lee Adams interview – looked at his site and couldn’t help being reminded of Diane Arbus’s work. Should be very interesting.

  2. Steve, I did that. The URL was from my Flickr page. I entered it, but it didn’t take. How did you do it? Can you show me the text in quotes or something?

  3. Hey Elaine, you have to click below where it says “Add images to your comments by clicking here” – then in that box you enter the URL of the .jpg.


  4. @Steve – Did I read that correctly about shooting “another new” camera sent from Leica? Is it the super zoom Pany TZ clone or something else? Something else would be really cool!

  5. I would love to read a review of the Yashica Ez F521. Samples (e.g. on Flickr) seem to vary from outright awful to very decent (for a digital toy camera). Not sure if I could live with the shutter lag, though. Cost/price performance wise, the LX3 at $399 is probably 3 times more of a camera than the Yashica Ez F521.
