  • I'd move with caution.  One in that condition should easily fetch twice that price.
  • Replied in None
    You will get a lot of conflicting opinions on this. However, compared to my film FM3a - they all suck. What people will be arguing about now is which suck the least, but in my experience the ...
  • If you are only going to use a 35mm lens.
  • Because the market is small and a niche market. Also, the cost to manufacture a rangefinder is exasperated by the lower production numbers. High end DSLRs usually have a complement of lenses and ...
  • Actually, it's more like that there isn't another camera company competing in the rangefinder world. Leica is really the only game in town, so if you want to play you got to pay. Fortunately, there ...
  • I think it is next to impossible to have any sensor 100% free of defects. However, manufactures usually set a limit of how many dead pixels are considered passable before it is considered a faulty ...
  • There is nothing wrong with APS-C and it can be an advantage if you need more reach on the telephoto side.  The only real disadvantages are somewhat higher depth of field and having to mentally ...
  • Why don't you just create a preset in Lightroom (or whatever) to automagically batch post process the raw data the way you want it? Just my opinion, but it seems foolish to abandon post processing ...
  • You are in the USA, so why not rent one and try them side by side?
  • Looking at the proposed specs has me very interested. I hope they pull it off.
  • I doubt the T has a lot of influence since these things usually take a lot of time to develop. The outward look may be inspired by the T, but it seems what is on the inside is not.
  • Aparantly not! http://photorumors.com/2015/02/23/konost-ff-is-a-full-frame-digital-rangefinder-camera-that-seeks-funding/ It looks like Leica has a competitor brewing and I for one wish them luck!
  • There is no perfect lens. Grab a lens, any lens, and take it out and shoot with it until you know it really well. Grab a different lens next time and shoot with that. The idea is to learn how to ...
  • Interesting point. I always thought of a walk around lens as something you attach to your camera and you go walking around with it. I guess another perspective is it could be any lens that is lying ...
  • Exactly! Odds are that the Rocket Blower will eliminate 90+% of dirt on a sensor, particularly after it has been wet cleaned.  Dry dust will not stick to a sensor very well anyway. Anything above ...
  • All newer Zeiss lenses have a groove in the lens flange.  You can paint or mark the lens coding inside the groove and it will not wear off. I never tried any of the 3rd-party flanges for Zeiss, but ...
  • I would not be so quick to rely on that rule on the M8. The crop sensor does not see the edge of the lens (where lenses are typically weakest), so that rule of thumb really is not so true for the ...
  • The 35mm is too close to the 28mm for field of view for a second lens. I would go with the 50mm so you have something with greater reach.  Buy a 35mm for your third lens. I also have the ZM 50 f/2 ...
  • Seems like a bit of a waste to simply decide not to learn how to post process given how much more capability it gives you as a photographer and artist. You can always try putting filters on, but ...
  • Goodness. First I would say that you will be better served if you invest some time in learning post processing. Second, you can always create your own profile to rapidly convert raw images to a ...
