  • If your portfolio contains similar images, you should submit into the annual Leica Oskar Barnack competition.  I wouldn't change a thing on the last image. Eric
  • Seriously, I have taken a couple of trips to the Orlando, Florida area with just one lens, a 28 or a 35.  I find the 28 is better for taking in the whole scene, but people pictures are a little ...
  • The rig on this end is an original ICOM 706, the antenna a hamstick 20m with a tuned-length counterpoise wire. By the way, the callsign is a legacy received through the vanity callsign system.  It ...
  • May I pose a couple of questions?  What core values are driving your desire to own and use a Leica?  Have you tried rangefinder photography before?  What kinds of subjects do you wish to shoot? If ...
  • I will pay you a thank you for pointing out the video, sales-ish as it may be.  I really didn't learn anything new, but it's entertaining while we wait for the Q queue to empty. Eric
  • 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 ...
