  • That is true John.  However, to continue the analogy, the Nikon or Canon is much faster in auto-focus mode the any M is in "focus then shoot" mode. :) Almost every shooter I know uses the ...
  • The differences are real and important depending upon what you shoot and how you have conditioned your hand/eye to anticipate peak action.   Here is an example...   If I shoot my 1D-IV for a dance ...
  • Indeed this is true .... the M9 has 6 times longer shutter lag than the M7 :)
  • Actually, the Leica M9 has a very long shutter lag time compared to other cameras ... this is possibly associated with the nature of the CCD and how it is electrically charged when shooting the ...
  • According to the l-camera forum folks, the shutter lag on the M9 is in the order of 80 ms.  The M 240 is "faster".
  • The first shot is really fine ... who really cares about the technical pixel peeping details.
  • There is a general "common knowledge" (based on detailed analysis by various in-depth reviewers) that the Leica-branded cameras will have some cosmetic differences (red dot, and other aesthetic ...
  • A red dot and a few dollars more expensive :)
  • For some strange reason, the Rocky Mountains near Calgary / Banff received an unexpected three days of snowfall around Sept 9 - totalling about 15 cm in Calgary.  Everything is still greeen, ...
  • If your predilection is for an "all in one" type of camera, the new V-Lux (branded by Leica or Panasonic) is probably a good choice.   It seems to be a versatile camera ... decent pixel count, ...
  • My inclination would be for the M 240 plus at 50mm Summarit.  That is a bit over your budget ... you might consider one of the Leica referb M240's for $1000 less.  Alternatively, an M9 second hand ...
  • Excellent !!!!  The feeling of walking through the gallery is amazing.  The clever use of the door reflection works extremely well.  The "voyeuristic" juxtaposition of the the lady with the ...
  • Nice set ... the lens really gives a fine perspective ... you chose the compositions well. I REALLY like #3 ... very nice feeling - excellent light, colours and good composition.
  • In my experience, the best lens is the human eye - It almost does not matter which glass is on your camera .... if you cannot "see", nothing worthwhile results.
  • I guess I would be upset if Zeiss came out with a series of lenses that surpassed the Leica offerings at all focal lengths.  Right now, for the "sake of competition", I think it is excellent that ...
  • If you need a lens that surpasses the best of current Leica offerings, and you have the image making and print making skills to use such an incredible lens, that is perfectly fine.  I cannot see ...
  • I love this portrait ... very well done.  My personal taste says it could use a bit more sparkle.
  • They already have a 75mm 1.4 and a 90mm 2.0 --- why is an answer needed for the rangefinder M series??? The Otus is manual focus and designed for reflex cameras...
  • The M9 is effectively ISO-less between ISO 160 and 640. In other words, there is a consistent and expected noise increase between these limits. In theory (and almost in practice), you could expose ...
  • It seems to me that putting noise as a more important attribute than getting a good decently sharp image is a strange way to take pictures.   The M9 noise levels can be well controlled in ...
