  • I've owned the 35/asph for close to a decade and have never had the rectangular clip-on hood fall off.  I did have the rubber slip-on front cap come off once, retraced my steps, and found it. Eric
  • For those readers calling the United States home, tomorrow is a special holiday, and a great day for some very colorful photos.  Parades, parties,and fireworks for all! Today is a good planning, ...
  • For those hunting for the camera and price is no object, BigBoxStore and Woodland Hills Camera have listed on Amazon, 3 cameras total for $5500 each, and two have showed up on Craigslist Los ...
  • In live view, are you using focus peaking?  Do you have the magnified view activated?  What color focus peaking?  Sometimes a color is easier to see than white. The EVF-2, or Olympus VF-2, work, ...
  • O.K., you've already discovered the positive side of film Leica ownership.  Buying a clean, used model can be a zero-depreciation prospect. For digital M bodies, they tend to lose 10-12% per year ...
  • F/8 and be there for the outdoors shots. i defer to your analysis on speculat highlight shapes to estimate the aperture setting.  That's good, sound physics! Eric
  • Thank you for the compliment.  These really were just snapshots, the best of a hundred I took yesterday.  Lots of amateur mistakes. The lens does not disappoint.  Yes, the size is bigger than an ...
  • What?!  No Huff, Reid, or Puts?
  • Created discussions M246 + 28mm/1.4 Summilux
    I had a few hours to play today and thought I would share some of my non-expert results.  My biggest issue is learning where the bottom of the frame is given the viewfinder obscuration. I term my ...
  • If man never shouted into the void, he never would have discovered an echo. Waxing philosophically, I try to interact in a thoughtful and open-minded fashion.  Soliciting various viewpoints is a ...
  • Sensor manufactured on planet Earth, Sol system, by homo sapiens Autofocus simple phase addition to achieve maximum intensity of response Glass made of SiO2 Oscillator Allan variance typically ...
  • If I knew someone with a Q, I would offer a meet-up to do the comparison. Which lens would you propose using on the M246?  The new Summilux, or the benchmark Summicron? I was thinking of the grand ...
  • First the easy - may I request stereo microphones built into the body for video use? and then the hard - trend back to the M4 form factor, the inevitable - more megapixels, higher ISO sensitivity, ...
  • I would love to take time to do the comparison shots today or very soon, but I have elder care matters to work through.  Still the summer doesn't start until 6/21, so I would ask for your patience. ...
  • Everyone is back home from the hospitals now, even the pet.  One more good day of work, and maybe the chance to shoot for half a day this weekend. It will be interesting to try.  I just mounted the ...
  • Replied in Bigger
    I found one in stock last Saturday and made the purchase.  It was in my 2015 plan anyway.  The lens is definitely larger than the 35/FLE, enough so that you cannot use the short nose case.  Think ...
  • I would expect to get a camera for market price if you are willing to buy any time from now through Christmas.  Advance the time 2 years and you might save 12% or so, maybe more with a CPO camera. ...
  • I vote for a James Bond edition 007 "Q" camera. On a more serious note, I think they tend to do one special run per famous photographer.  I don't remember them repeating any in the past.  LHSA ...
  • A very nice shot, I'm still considering adding a P900 to the kit for just such opportunities. As an experienced dragonfly shooter, you probably already know this trick, but for the rest of the ...
  • I have found the AF to be >95% correct when I use the single-zone spot focus.  The wide area was less successful. You may also wish to share the shutter speed, aperture, and sensitivity settings ...
