It’s Christmas Eve and it’s that time of year that makes me smile. I will be taking the next two days off from posting but wanted to post some fun Friday links for the weekend anyway 🙂 I wish everyone a GREAT Christmas. If any of you end up with some cool photo gear for Xmas, take a pic of it and send it over to me. Would be cool to make a post out of it. Anyway, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
BTW, next week I hope to publish my Pentax K5 review along with a cool comparison between the NEX-5 and Leica M8 with a Leica 50 Summarit and 90 Summarit. Many people ask me…should I buy an M8 or a NEX-5 and adapter? I can state now that there is a substantial quality difference between the two when using the same lens. Which one wins? Find out next week 🙂
Something silly I posted last year 🙂
T’was the night before Christmas, camera gear on your mind.
A Leica nut, you were hoping for a shiny M9.
The wife in her checkbook, and that look on your face,
Just hoping she won’t notice that lens you bought at B&H.
When from outside the door, there arose such a sound,
you sprang from your seat to see if FedEx was around!
You opened the door, with cheer and with glee,
Oh Joy! It’s your neighbor’s dog and she’s squatting to pee!
Oh M9, Oh M9, won’t you come here to me?
It’s all I will need, ever, oh dear can’t you see?
When what to your wondering eyes should appear?
Your wife with a smile as you gulp down your beer.
She hands you a box, oh what could it be?
The M9 or new Noctilux, well who knows? Lets See!
“It’s just what you hoped for,” she says by the tree.
The tingles then start, from your head to your feet.
You give it a shake, thoughts go through your brain…
“Hmmm, yes!! This could be it!” you boldly proclaim!
As you open the box, you are filled with delight!
Your wife, kids, and dog watch…oh what a sight!
You pull out the gift through the peanuts and fluff,
What the hell? The new Vivitar your wife saw on Steve Huff!
“Is that the M9 you wanted, oh dear husband of mine”?
“I saw it online, what a deal, what a find!”
You look at her with love and say, “Why yes dear, it is!”
A hug and a kiss and she’s soon filled with bliss!
You pull out her gift with a smile on your face,
You were no fool, your backup plan was in place!
Her face is confused when she sees what’s inside.
My oh my, its a brand new Leica M9!
Speaking of Christmas, I hear LeicaImages.com is having a contest and giving away an X1! Wow.

What is one of Oprah’s favorite things? It’s a camera but guess which one? Would not have been my pick!
