  • It really depends on the kind of "street photography" you're talking about.  If you mean shooting as you walk, with a minimum shutter speed of 1/500 or higher, yes, the autofocus might not keep ...
  • I had an X1 briefly and sold it to get an X2.  I also have an XV, which I love, but is clearly a CAMERA (by which I mean when I shoot with it people KNOW).  I also have a Ricoh GR which I shot ...
  • Replied in Skyfall
    Rodrigue, One of those times I'd love to see this in a print.  BTW, since I'm piggybacking on my wife's FB account I didn't post there on how beautiful the portrait of your lady love is.  So ...
  • Well said.  A camera should make you want to use it to take pictures.  If it's frustrating or note satisfying, life is too short.  I felt exactly the same way as you about the XV - and the X2 as well.
  • Replied in Leica X or X-E
    I think some good points are made below.  I own the earlier version of the x-e, the x2, and would never change it for the X.  I have the X-Vario as well, and X is closer in size (it seems to me) ...
  • Perhaps this 79.00 upgrade is only available now for U.S. users?  I know that I get the same offer if I use the link.  That would be lousy, and I don't know enough about these things to know if ...
  • I feel we're hijacking this thread and for that I apologize.  I'll just add that I got my X2 used by in mint condition and with the warranty turned over to me (including the copy of lightroom) and ...
  • Enjoy your new X2!  I've been getting to know mine the last few weeks and just love it.  I use the Olympus VF-2 with it, and there's just something about hearing that "click" and feeling the ...
  • Replied in Be Italian
    the word that comes to mind, even in the color version, is "timeless."  It's what I love about the XV especially in your hands. Respectfully, Denis
  • Replied in Be Italian
    Stunning.  Now I really want to get this camera. Oh, wait.  I mean, now I really want to find a window and a beautiful Italian woman. And know what I'm doing. I'll stop now. Denis
  • If you check my history you can see that I had an equally wonderful experience with the folks in New Jersey.  From what I am told there are only a handful of people there, and they take their work ...
  • Replied in Teatime.
    Rodrigue, You are WRONG.  WRONG WRONG WRONG.  HA! She is sitting, not standing.  :-) Otherwise, lovely as always. Denis
  • I don't want to wade into this same old debate, but it really comes down to how the camera feels in your hands.  I bought a 109 as soon as they were available in the states.  I wanted to love the ...
  • I should just have a macro on my keyboard for automatically writing "Gorgeous images, Rodrigue!"  It would save me so much time. These are amazing.  You see, in Brooklyn, when it snows in March it ...
  • Rodrigue, Thanks for the repost.  I love that you really use the full spectrum of focal lengths - depending on what you're trying to do with the image.  It's like changing lenses...without needing ...
  • Rodrigue, All great, but the last three REALLY show the Leica signature!  But why no exif?  Keeping your magic to yourself :-D Denis
  • Enrique, I assure you, I am NOT kind!  (well maybe a little).  But you SHOULD be proud.  And keep taking pictures!  My problem is that in the weather we have been having, I take out my little Ricoh ...
  • Enrique, As I scrolled through this marvelous set of images, I thought how they seemed somehow "Leica-ish" (probably just my silly preconception) and many of them seemed timeless. I then noticed ...
  • The third one works so perfectly.  It's all the little details that if they weren't there it would be a nice snapshot - but the expression, the body language, the graffiti and the umbrella. Great job!
  • Didn't anyone tell you the 35mm lens is NOT a portrait lens!  For shame!  :-) Happy Chinese New Year - and yes, that was a SHEEPISH grin... Denis
