To the beach - Leica M9 with borrowed Leica 35mm, f2.5 summarit-M

Out to beach on a lovely April spring day in the UK.  I borrowed a Leica 35mm, f2.5 Summarit-M to see what it is like.  It is one of the less expensive 35 mm form leica.  It is small so on the M9 body it is a very compact combination.  I found it very sharp even at f2.5 (all the photos were shot wide open).  I would deffinately say value for money!!!

Depth of field good 

End of the castle

Blue - moon - plain - cloud

The throw!

If you missed it in the previous picture - this is the rock.  As I said very sharp little lens!!

Welcome my Beauty!

All photos are straight out of the Leica M9 taken with Voigtlander 75mm, f2.5.  I was a little apprehensive using the more portrait orientated lens in low light conditions, but I am so pleased with the feel and depth of field. 
A short wait

Almost there!

The two beauties meet
