  • I've had a ScreenPatronus on my M8 since 2007.  I had a pack of Hoodman screen covers and am using one of those on the XV now.
  • Tell us more about how and what you shoot now.  That will help guide the advice. I take snapshots of people, places, and things, and when I have to pack for a 1-lens trip, it's 75% 35/1.4, 25% 28/2.8.
  • Replied in Don't go cheap
    The xv was a $999 investment, don't scrimp on the case.  You could wind up with something with poor quality, or even worse, made of materials that damage your camera.  Fumes from glue or leather ...
  • Leerob, I am glad you received the same deal I found.  Kenmore camera was my seller too. My camera came without the hotshot/EVF socket cover.  I called Leica USA and they sent one out for free. The ...
  • I snagged one of twelve CPO cameras from Kenmore Camera for $999. I don't know if more are coming or not.
  • There are bargain kits with the 50 and 75 Summarit on the market right now. I saw the M240 and the 2 lenses for $6500 US. Eric
  • The black chrome vs anodized finish is an interesting trade.  I own a couple of lenses from the 1970's and have seen many more, and so long as you don't hit them with something hard and sharp, ...
  • Maybe pick up the new 50/APO too to complete the kit. Have fun!
  • Always nice to share different processes.  Thanks for the post. Eric
  • Replied in Nice results
    I've been playing with the vintage Leica IR filters and have achieved similar results. I do find I need to shift the focus to between f/4 and f/5.6 for optimum sharpness.  Also I find the built-in ...
  • Replied in So very tempted
    Cody, Welcome back.  I hope you've been enjoying shooting the past few weeks. I must admit, I have wanted a safari camera for a few years, but they've always exceeded the money in the checking.  I ...
  • Replied in 3 techniques
    3 steps:  focus - recompose - shoot 2 steps:  compose - shoot (assumes presetting lens to hyperfocal distance) 1 step:  shoot (assumes presetting lens to hyperfocal distance and choosing something ...
  • Albert, If you look at the professional video industry, you will see lots of higher-end gear which you do not wish to know about.  I respectfully recommend a little research so you know what you ...
  • So, there are a number of technical discussions we might wish to pursue here, but the bottom line up front, splurge on a high-quality yellow filter and give it a try. One argument for optical ...
  • I see multiple references to low light in your post.  Is that a priority?  If so, try to find f/2.0 or f/1.4 glass where you can. I also see a reference to crazy bokeh.  Is that a priority, and are ...
  • Personal style and preference, but I like a bag that won't scratch my camera if I throw both on the same shoulder. This means no steel zippers, studs, or rivets allowed. The bag you reference has ...
  • Replied in Economics
    The silver Noctilux is also a few hundred more than the black one.  For these two new silver lens releases, they use the same metal types for the barrels and mounts, differing only in finish.  On ...
  • Replied in Maybe not
    I looked at completed Ebay sales and there were 4 sold recently between 600 and 650. The AF is usable but slow. Perhaps you can share the type of photography that you do for further opinions. If ...
  • Replied in Good plan
    Excellent plan. The better you know your gear, the better you will be at achieving the results you want. The '109 should keep you busy for at least a couple of years. Enjoy! Eric
  • I already put down a deposit to be first in line at the local dealer. Here's to hoping it arrives in 2015. So Cody, what will be your next Leica lens and why? Eric
