  1. I was wondering if anyone knows what lens he uses? 35/1.4?
     
  2. maybe this would help?

  3. Look just after 3:40- blurry close-up of the camera looks like '28' on the lens barrel.
     
  4. he may even use more than one lens...
     
  5. He is featured in a Leica catalog from 2006, and at the end of the introductory paragraph it says he uses an M6 with a Summicron 35
    Asph. I'd imagine that he does have more than a single body and one lens though.
     
  6. Thanks very much everyone. I've only now discovered his work. Yes of course he may have other lens but I came upon a book of his images and they all looked consistent both in terms of great shots and a slight distortion of straight lines. All had a remarkable narrow depth of field considering he was snapping moving people and bubbles floating through the air.

    Again thanks everyone.
     
  7. The majority of SIdeWalk looks like it's shot with a 28 but there are a handful of pictures where a longer lens is clearly used.

    It's great street photography, whatever he uses.

  8. Thanks Alun ... I couldn't decide 35 or 28 but because of the narrow DOF inclinded towards 35. he must shoot wide open.

    I agree great street photography and I'm glad I came across his work.
