  • Great writing. Really enjoyed the practical experience you conveyed. Mine is on order but I am waiting over a month. It must be catching on. Thanks.
  • I have bought used once off e-bay.  I got the MATE 28-35-50 off e-bay from Hunt Photo a camera store out of New England.  It is a great lens and perfect for travel. When using e-bay, I prefer ...
  • Very nice series. The color and detail are great.
  • Looks like a great camera.  If it is the same camera how come on the B&H website the Panasonic is listed as 12.8 mp and the Leica over 16mp?
  • The first shot is beautiful. In my opinion some are a little heavy on the HDR, some not. Some great ones in your gallery. HDR is tough to control for me because once you start some of the photos I ...
  • This just started happening to me as well.  I don't know why.  I have my Aperture library stored on an attached separate hard drive.  For some reason that drive logs off the system and sometimes i ...
  • I'd rent the M and 50 lux for a long weekend. Process the photos and decide. I did and made the switch from Canon 3 years ago. Occasionally you may miss autofocus when something fast comes by. ...
  • I find it very troubling that Apple provides so little information other than they are dumping a product many of their customers rely on. Why not describe how the transition will work? Why leave ...
  • Very disappointing. The migration to Lightroom looks painful. It looks like you can't do so and save adjustments without converting to JPEG or tiff's? That means really just starting over now with...

  • Congratulations. Glad you got the M240. The 35 is probably the best all around focal length in my view. Enjoy the camera. The keepers will greatly outweigh the adjustment to manual focus.
  • Given the excellent quality of your photo stream and the cameras you already own, I would recommend you go "all in" and get the M240.  I think if you get one of the other options, you may keep it ...
  • Nice shot in a beautiful part of the world.
  • Submitted a challenge entry L1000749

  • Great shots. You really captured the action and feel of the performance.
  • The Voigtlander is a great lens. It has great low light performance and is a little bigger than the Cron. the Cron gets criticized in many reviews as a relatively poor performer for a Leica. I ...
  • I shot it with a 28mm on full frame.  I needed wider.  I would think an 18mm equivalent would be best.  The Oly 9-18 or Panny 7-14 would be the way to go unless you are going to stitch.  You may ...
  • I have had good experiences with the Summicron. If money is no object I'd go with the Summilux FLE. The cron isn't rated that highly by some reviewers, but that has not been my experience with the ...
  • I appreciate the photo series as a unique view of a part of the world that is not commonly available.  it is also well done technically.  Why not appreciate a view of the world that we do not see ...
  • On thumati.com there is a page called Setting up an OMD EM-5.  I found it a good place to start.
