  • They really are, almost literally, works of art. 1955, one year after Leitz introduced the M3, Germany was not yet out of the post-war slump. The Leitz Works gave camera parts to housewives in ...
  • This is a long held Leica tradition, one of their virtues that rarely gets mentioned these days. I well remember that back in the late 1980's or early 1990's, Leica announced that they would stop ...
  • The first one reminds me of Cassigneul. But what can one say? It's quite obvious that here, the photographer's artistic skills weighs far more than the camera or lens.
  • Sorry for being almost OT, I was more disturbed by her eye make-up than by the difference between the 2 photos. FWIW I prefer the Hassy one, but the quality of the composition and timing probably ...
  • I would recommend an Elmar f/2.8. Much cheaper, but far better distortion, and better definition (this is the correct word for contrast+sharpness). You don't hear people talking about distortion ...
  • Everytime Leica comes up with a new product somebody will do a feature comparison and concluded that the new Leica came up way short. And then in actual usage there is nothing but praise. This has ...
  • Far better if it could take R lenses.
  • You can go the "Retouching" Forum for learning Lightroom, etc. I also recommend "Studio and Lighting Technique" Forum.
  • Of course, the extra money all goes into ensuring the larger aperture lens performs at the same standard as the Elmarits. All that extra cost is caused by the larger aperture. A Leica lens is a ...
  • Wait till you see a 1954 90mm Elmar at F4 (full aperture).
  • Sorry for bothering you guys. I'm a bit desperate. I have an iPhone 3s and I've been synching the contacts to Windows Contacts (Windows 7) for about 10 months without trouble. Lately (2 weeks ago) ...
  • I thought I was only a small minority in love with the X-Vario. Seems I have larger company than I thought. I've sold my X2. So far no regrets. My only problem was, up to now, no anti-shake. But ...
  • Many people don't know, or remember, that Leica invented auto-focus. They used it on the Leitz Focomat enlargers, and only on the enlargers. There were some reports, about 20+ years ago, that Leica ...
  • Jorge I feel the same. I've used 4, 5 and now the 6. The 6 is excellent. But the 5 was a bit of a disappointment, but not performance-wise. As you said, the 4 had more character. However, this ...
  • Maybe the RAW files, but certainly not the jpg files. Not according to my eyes. The D-Lux series have the Teutonic tint and the LX series have the Japanese tint. If you want to know what I'm ...
  • Replied in Leica X Vario
    Your shots confirmed my own impression of the XV. The lens is just as sharp as primes. I've had it for about 3 months and I'm now seriously thinking of selling my X2.
  • I thought the FF NEX is Sony's response to the M9? Better late than never.
  • I think I was 28 when I bought my first Leica, but I've been covetting it ever since I was 15; so a 13 year wait for the first one, a used M4 plus a Summicron. Now I'm in my late 50's.
  • If you like the first one better then I think you should stick with your first one. In art there'll always be people who like it and people who don't. It's your art and you do what you like. My ...
  • This genre has been around for a long time, ever since digital image manipulation became possibl. I agree with most people that it sells well. As to artistic content (whatever it means), it really ...
