I've been toying with the idea of picking up a digital rangefinder, for candids/street shooting, and have been reading up a great deal. There are currently only two available, the R-D1s and the M8. The M8 is a little rich for me at the moment, although if Vieri keeps posting his M8 pictures, he might push me over the edge.:biggrin: My reading made me realise that the sensor in the R-D1s is actually the same as in the D70, which I own. So, I got to thinking, why don't I just get out and use what I have. Keeping it as simple as possible, I fitted the 24mm f2.8 in order to arrive close to what might be thought of as the classic street shooting focal length (35mm on full frame). I was able to shove this in the inner pocket of my Barbour (yes, it has been raining somewhat around here), and not have to carry any bags etc. I have only one photo to show at the moment, and this was using auto focus. However, if your subjects are a little bit farther away than in the following photo, you should be able to get away with setting it at 2 metres and just shoot away. The camera was set at auto iso and auto white balance, although I shot in raw plus jpg. I simply desaturated it in Photoshop to give a more classic candid look.
