  • How does dlux fit in your pocket?
  • Created discussions Leica c or dlux6 or ???
    I'm looking for a camera I can literally keep in my pocket all the time.  I have a M240 and I can't carry it  in my pocket obviously.  Maybe I have a busy work day and I cant get away for lunch to ...
  • Created discussions leica M - new firmware is out
    sadly it does not look like there is any major "improvement" to warrant a version change from 1.1 to 2.0.
  • I would get the 35 asph.  Had one but got rid of it for a 50noct.  I really am a big believer in one lens.  I just don't want the option to change the glass.  Just go out and shoot with what you ...
  • The C is the LF1 rebranded. I think leica did a better job with the aesthetics.  It looks like the leica might be slightly taller too. The firmware is the same.  I might buy the leica C because it ...
  • I like the first color best, but everybody has seen pictures of stonehenge, so the first B&W is what i would print and frame.
  • Hi, thanks for the info.  This looks like it meets my requirement on length and lug protection.  It also looks interesting how you can adjust so easily. I ordered one just now.
  • Very true but the initial pics look great.  Ill probably buy one
  • Replied in why 800 iso?
    There is no doubt Dale is a smart guy.  And I like how he posts pictures regularly.  I admit when I log in, I am pleased to see a new topic from Dale.  There is a certain comical aspect that he ...
  • first is fantastic -- well done.  second is a great find, but personally I would have liked to see some other elements (bicyclist, people walking by, etc) in the background to give a little more ...
  • Created discussions strap that goes across chest
    I am looking for a neck strap but i want it to go across my chest so that the camera is at my side.  I purchased one from A&A and i really like how they have the leather lug protector so you do ...
  • Hi, the title says it all.  I hear about pocket wizards and such, but I am wondering if D4 has automated this somehow or if i need to buy third party products to remote trigger? What about the ...
  • We all prefer an item to be new/unused because it means less chance of being dropped or maybe the item was not satisfactory enough to the previous customer that handled it.  But I was at a dealer ...
  • Created discussions What flash for M (240)? SF58?
    I moved from Nikon to Leica system for the size.  I am very happy with my M.  I can't yet snap pics as good as the D4, but the convenience of having it with me all the time makes up for it. But, ...
  • I am new to rangefinders having just purchased a leica M.  I read recently about one of the benefits of a RF is you can keep both eyes open -- so you can focus/frame and see your surroundings at ...
  • does anyone use a single lens?  I think the appeal of leica is the size and simplicity so I ordered my first leica (a M) and will pair it with a single lens.. A 35mm lux.  I was torn between what ...
  • Hi, just got a M.  I cant do anything, though, without some lenses! I am trying to decide between the summicron 50mm and the 50mm ASPH.  Is the ASPH worth that kind of money?  I cant find any ...
  • Anyone know where I can buy a Leica M even if it is at a premium?  There are some sellers wanting $9-10,000 but I think that is a little ridiculous.  I don't mind paying a little premium to have ...
  • I like what I have read of the Sony RX1. One concern is I am not sure if it is really a pocket camera anymore than the Leica?  I have read some reviews and two reviewers mention it is small but ...
  • I am interested in buying a Leica.  I have a Nikon d800 & d4 but quite frankly I am tired of lugging around bulky bodies on vacation.  If I am going on vacation to shoot, that's fine.  but if i go ...
