caseybrucedaisey said: Hi Patrick, just wanted to say I'm a big fan of your photos! Just had a couple questions. First, how do you pick what camera you shoot certain subjects with? And also what do you think of the voigtlander lenses? I've been looking into getting one but not sure about the quality compared to other Leica lenses, but your photos make the quality look great nonetheless. Thanks!!

Thanks!

I almost always leave the house with my Olympus XA and if I’m going out to take pictures specifically, a medium format TLR will almost always be with me, but picking the right camera(s) is definitely the most neurotic part of my “photographic process.” I’m leaving on a trip to California in a few days and deciding what cameras to bring along is going to be a challenge. I like having a variety of options but I don’t want to be weighed down too much by lugging too many things along, especially since I often end up not using everything anyway. So… I don’t really have a good answer for you on that one.

I’ve never used a modern/expensive Leica lens. I have several older ones from the 50s and 60s that are excellent. Cosina Voigtlander lenses are the only modern M and LTM mount lenses I’ve used and I’ve been happy with every one I’ve owned and/or tried. At this point, I don’t think there’s much question about the excellence of CV lenses in terms of their optics. It seems like people often focus on build quality when comparing Leica and CV glass. I would hope the build quality for Leica lenses would be absolutely amazing, given the cost, and I’m sure it is, but I don’t particularly want to walk around Baltimore or many other places with such expensive gear around my neck. Cosina Voigtlander has made shooting with rangefinders affordable, for people like me, so I’m definitely a fan.
