  • Replied in X Vario or T ?
    Really? That "bog standard" zoom may have similar focal length and aperture to a standard "Kit zoom", but it is vastly superior in optical quality at all apertures and focal lengths.
  • Replied in M5>M6
    I'd take an M5 over any other film Leica.  Best user of the lot, with shutter speeds displayed in the viewfinder and a shutter speed dial that overhangs the front.  Meter is also a proper match ...
  • Black X Varios are $2099 at most dealers now, though the silver ones are strangely still way above.  Fantastic camera, my M Monochrom and Nikon Df are jealous. I'll add that you should get the ...

  • Yes the M5 is odd, but it is the best user of the lot.   Ergonomics are vastly superior and the meter is sensitive, accurate and most importantly selective.  Batteries not that big of a deal, can ...
