Hey guys should i sell off my nikon F5 for a leica M6??
firstly my F5 is too heavy for me and bulky but its functions are fantastic, even the lousiest photos i expected turn out to be great
secondly leica is much more lighter and its lens are fantastic...

is it worth it?:rolleyes:

Oh no, not again....

Sell the F5 and buy a F100 then. For a F80. If you like the functions of the F5, selling it for a M6 deprives you of all of them (not like you really need them anyway).

If you like rangefinders, go check out the Voightlander Bessa series.

He wrote, and i quote: "even the lousiest photos i expected turn out to be great"

So the camera maketh the picture?

For me, i think you shld stick to your F5. And of course.. nikon lens aren't that bad rite? I think they still produce good lens for nikon, so I don't see the need to go leica.



P.S: however, canon lens are the :devil: best :devil:

Is the following true?
leica > contax > canon > nikon

I somehow missed that. This statement reveals the amount of experience you have in photography. I seriously think you should assess your shooting style before committing. Not that there's anything wrong with buying an F5 or a M6 though.

bresson, i think you're missing a very impt point here. if the pictures are nice, why re-invent the wheel? if it works for you, let it be...

unless you know for a fact that switching to a Leica will result in even better pixs, then it's your choice (and your money). :D
