  • May I ask where you obtained the screen protector? Michael
  • You spoiled the magic!  Wonderful post-processing! Michael
  • Barjohn, Thanks for the excellent review, a model in my opinion for others to follow.  You appraise the camera from the standpoint of the shooter, not some pixel peeper comparing huge image ...
  • Dirk, Lovely stuff, thanks for posting. For what its worth, a find the B & W images with the highest degree of contrast the best, but the color shots, especially of the stairs, are even better. Tha ...
  • Wow, looks like a 19th century painting from a book! Great work. Michael
  • I am likewise impressed with these beautiful images!  Thanks for posting them and keep us informed, please, how you are liking the Q. Cheers, Michael
  • Hank, I have had the T since it first came out and have used it a lot.  I continue to be disappointed with the autofocus.  I find as many as 1 out of 10 photos that I felt were in focus at the time ...
  • Thank you for your honest review. I have been dithering about the Q but have decided to let Leica AG work out the bugs first, as this has been the history with most of my Leicas. I would think ...
  • Your review of the Q is excellent and meets the high standard I have come to expect from your writing.  I'm not interested in pixel counting or the details of how to get into sub-menus; I'm ...
  • Your children are 100% right!  Betty is beautiful and it's a wonderful picture! Michael
  • Replied in Nope!
    Raaj and Dave, I'm anxious to try the EV and autofocus on the Leica Q.  I have a T and have no confidence in its autofocus; time and again it fools me into thinking it is focused when it is not, or ...
  • Godfrey and David, I should have clarified that the M-P Type 240 weight of 1095 grams (2 lbs 6.55oz)  was based upon the camera with the 35 mm f. 2 Summicron lens supplied with the Safari model.  I ...
  • I read that the new Leica Q is made from magnesium with an aluminum top plate. I haven't read all the reviews of the new camera but I'm surprised that of those reviews I have read there is no ...
  • Thank you all for your comments.  I understand and appreciate the common concern that a "Leica must be a Leica" and that Leica and plastic don't mix, but Leica already uses plastic bodies (though ...
  • Created discussions How about a lightweight Leica?
    It's time Leica produced a lightweight camera that accepts M mount lenses.  Mainline Leicas have gotten progressively heavier, as illustrated in this comparison of three cameras: Model III g ...
  • Indeed this is the frustrating thing about the "T."  It could point in a new direction for Leica, a company that needs a good selling mirrorless camera and is lighter and faster than an "M" model ...
  • RBM: My advice is save your money until firmware release 1.4, assuming that this release finally fixes the slow autofocus.  1.3 did not improve the focusing, at least in my opinion.  I have both ...
  • I own a model III and recently bought a model IIIg on Ebay.  In my opinion you will reach a far broader audience of potential customers by selling on Ebay, despite the listing charges you will pay ...
  • Replied in M9 or M240
    Opinions will differ and who can say what is right -- at least regarding cameras! I've owned the M 8, which I had upgraded to 8.2 specifications, an M-9 and recently bought an M-P 240 "Safari" ...
  • Let's face it, none of us on this forum exactly "needs" a new camera, of any description. Remember that we are constantly admonished by the really great photographers to take pictures, not hunt for ...
