  • Most people can learn to use a rangefinder quite easily though as in most things practice makes perfect. Anyone with any sort of visual impairment may struggle and a visit to the optician to have ...
  • The implementation of focus peaking by Leica is fairly subtle. Modern high contrast lenses work best. Softer focus lenses may not show any peaking. With very short focal length lenses like me SEM ...
  • Quite a lot depends on your style of photography. I enjoy using primes on my Leica rangefinder which suits a calm considered approach to landscapes, portraits and the like. When shooting my lively ...
  • Very nice pictures. I found the MG ones very nostalgic. I had an MG TD Midget in the early 60s - a 1949 model if I remember correctly. Great fun but my girlfriend did not entirely appreciate it. ...
  • Welcome to the forum. The GXR system is strangely addictive. I rashly sold off all my GXR gear last year to help to fund my new Leica M240. I am very happy with the Leica but i have missed the ...
  • If you are looking for a really pocketable camera the Panasonic LF1 (or if you are rich its Leica C clone) will fit into a shirt breast pocket and is usable in sunlight thanks to a built in EVF. ...
  • Replied in Strange noises

  • Replied in M9 OR 240???
    I sold my M9 to part finance my purchase of the M240 last year. I am happy with my decision as although I cannot see a great improvement in the images I take I do find an increase in versatility ...
  • Excellent pictures. Getting exposure right with snow scenes can be tricky but you nailed it. I found your picture of the Elmar f 2.8 5cm (as Leica describes it) very nostalgic as that was my first ...
  • I too have searched for a truly pocketable camera to carry   on a daily basis. I recently bought the Panasonic LF-I. I chose it mainly because it will fit in a shirt pocket. I have been impressed ...
  • I agree. As I have the excellent mZuiko f2.8 12-40mm zoom for my E-M1 there has not been much point in using my wde M mount lenses so I have tried my Summilux 50, Tele emarit 90 and Tele elmar 135 ...
  • Yes,  I use a Leica to MFT adapter with my Olympus OM-D E-M1. Focusing is manual of course but is easy as Leica lenses are designed for manual focus and benefit from magnification with sensor ...
  • I had an E-M5 before I got the E-M1 so I suppose I am now used to being without a popup flash which I always found quite useful for a bit of fill-in when shooting contre-jour as well as for ...
  • I agree with the suggestion of the Panasonic LF-1. It is remarkably versatile for its size. It is probably the only reasonably sophisticated camera that will fit easily into a shirt pocket. The ...
