It was quite the honour to be invited to South-East Asia by Monogram Asia to present at the Royal Photographic Society of Thailand and also in Jakarta, Indonesia. In between, I had the opportunity to shoot intensively with some fantastic photographers on the streets of Singapore, Bangkok and Jakarta. All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten experience and one I am truly grateful for.

This is pretty wild: the lens adapter company Techart Pro has announced that it has created the world’s first Leica M-mount to Sony E-mount autofocus adapter. That’s right. Autofocus.
“Since we started developing FE mount autofocus adapters a few years ago, we always hoped to develop something that allows autofocus for Leica M mount lens,” Techart writes. “We weighed a few options, and finally decided to use an autofocus system that is similar to Contax AX, meaning a change in flange focal distance.”
Wishing all of our fellow photographers a prosperous "Year of the Monkey". Lots of things happening this year for us at Monogram Asia. Soon another pop-up bookstore will be launched. And the tour line up all of you have been waiting for will be revealed on 15 February. Watch this space!
From all of us at Monogram Asia, have a safe, happy holiday. And if you're already thinking about your 2016 trips, do browse through our Tours section. If we get enough suggestions for North Pole, well, who knows. Anything can happen on Christmas. ;)
