  • I had the same problem you are having with the A6000. When compared to the Leica XV there was no comparison. The A6000 images looked like a soft gauze was over the lens. I could only get a razor ...
  • I hope you are right on the new firmware.
  • I can concur with DGPNY as I too have the EVF.  Another note which I have mentioned in another post is the very slow to lock GPS.  It is almost worthless due to how slow it is to lock and get a ...
  • I have the EVF. Frankly, it isn't as good as the A7 or XT-1 EVF.  I find I only use it about 5-10% of the time as when mounted you can't readily carry camera in the bag or in the holster. Unless ...
  • Actually, if you put the camera in MF, and cycle the info button you will find a display showing distance and depth of field.  The negative is the scale is not a fine as it needs to be or should ...
  • I set my JPGs the same as Peter and I have posted my DNG presets on the Leica User Forum.  They are similar to above but not quite as far or as many as above and then I tweak in PP.
  • Replied in leica t or not
    I had the A6000 with the kit lens and I have the T with the zoom.  I often test shooting a photo of a photo because being a planar subject there is no DOF issue when comparing on camera to the ...
  • Replied in Same here...
    I have had the T for about 2 weeks now and I can tell you that this is one of the best and easiest to use interfaces I have found on any camera and I have been through a ton of cameras.  The menu ...
  • My experience with the lens was not favorable.  I found it gave every image a vail like appearance.  The lens lacks good contrast, especially micro-contrast so images lack crispness.  The camera ...

    Mauro, I'm not sure where "here" is, but it appears to me thatLeica's focus on the 1.1 release was fixing bugs and ensuring that functionality matched the user manual.  Given that the processor is ...
  • Greg, As someone that owns a T and has owned an XV, I can tell you that there are a number of small but significant improvements that make the T more enjoyable for me (excluding the big one like ...
  • The same question was asked on the Leica User's Forum.  One brave soul undertook to compare the M with 50 Cron against the T with Zoom set to 50, and 40 C- Cron (an old but great lens) and X Vario ...
  • I had the A7 & A7R at the same time and I had the kit zoom and the 55mm prime.  I shot in JPG + Raw.  I actually wound up prefering the files from the A7 even though I preferred the additional ...
  • As I have a T and I am known to be critical of Leica when I beleive it is warranted, I think I can provide some perspective on the negatives he called out. On the Camera's speed/responsiveness: The ...
  • It recovers highlights very well.  What I was seeing and has been discussed in this thread is the difference between the JPGs and the DNG files in the way LR presents them.  It appears that the ...
  • Even colder!!  :)
  • You guys in SF would probably know given the cold weather there (except in Sep-Oct).  :)
  • Created user reviews Great Little Camera but...
    The camera is quick and has an excellent sensor and a great value for the money; however three things go against it for me. 1. The lenses are just too huge except for the kit lens which I found to ...
  • Given that I live in Southern California, gloves are something I rarely wear except when I am traveling to cold country so I haven't tried using gloves.  The gloves I have for travel are leather ...
  • Here are my presets that I apply to my DNG files.  It gives you a starting point.  You can then tweak exposure or sharpening to suit your own taste. LR T-DNG Profile
