  • A solution to Option 3 might be this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kipon-Leica-Visoflex-M-mount-Lens-to-Micro-4-3-mount-M43-Adapter-E-P3-PL3-G3-GF3-/221998227282?
  • The v4 firmware for the E-M1 was released in November 2015. It was a much better update than most firmware releases. Perhaps it was designed to keep us all happy till September. Having just ...
  • I am in the same dilemma. Ihave the 40-150 f2.8 as well as the 75-300. I am intending to get the new 300 Pro and seriously considering selling the 40-150 as although it is a terrific lens I do not ...
  • I use the Olympus FL300R. It is quite small. It tilts but does not swivel. I also use a Nissin i40 which is a bit bigger but much more powerful and both tilts and swivels. It come in various ...
  • Thanks. I was thinking of the rear TCs which do lose  exposure. The front TC would seem a better bet provided it is optically good enough to get a sharp image.
  • I doubt if it would be worth using a TC on the 75-300mm lens as at 300mm it is only f6.7 and you would loose a stop or two of exposure when using a TC. At present the Pro 40-150 with TC gives ...
  • A most interesting image. I think you may underestimate the musical interests of Leica enthusiasts. I too would regard Opus 111 no. 32 as one of my favourites. FDecker beat me to the question I ...
  • Louis, I am so glad that you are happy with your new Leia T. Nice pictures with the credit due to the photographer rather than the equipment as usual. Strangely I did not immediately gel with my ...
  • I have the the first version of the 75-300. It does suffer fom a small aperture particularly at longer focal lengths but it is a very capable performer as demonstated by the good images you ...
  • There is a newer version of the Voigtlander 15mm -v3 which was released earlier this year. It is a bit larger than the previous versions but does not suffer from the magenta edges that earlier ...
  • I have the original version of the Olympus 75-300 and I have been quite pleased with it. It is capable of good results but only if there is enough light. My pictures taken in the summer months in ...
  • Attractive colourful pictures. The Leica C is often overlooked but it is a very capable little camera and amazingly small - it will fit in a shirt pocket. You are right about the image ...
  • I really like the LF1 and would like to see it upgraded. I do not really understand the complaints about it being too small as I regard its diminutive size as its major advantage. It must be one ...
  • There have been previous threads in which users have used the Panasonic DMW-BLG10 successfully in the Leica D-Lux 109. Third party versions of the DMW-BLG10 also work though the charge may not ...
  • Replied in m 240 or me
    I would agree that my preference would be for the M240 or if the period of saving up is prolonged possibly its successor. The ME is really old technology now. Apart from the worries about the ...
