  • Ciao Gianluca, I am still trying to figure out what could have been the probability to meet you in a square during a random night walk - very very low ... I hope that will happen again in the ...
  • Replied in Thanks Jeff !
    I was makeing experiments with the Lux 50 and ND filter - not an easy task under strong light. Best, M
  • Replied in Grazie Zephir !
  • Replied in Thanks Paul !
    All the best, M
  • I shot these images on a warm and sunny late December 2014 day. Leica M240 & Summilux 50mm asph. C&C welcome. Thanks for looking, Mauro
  • Both Leica T and Fuji X are compromised systems on AF speed, and Leica T is also bogged down by slow operating speed and clumsy interface. On image quality both are not up to current best ...
  • Sensor replacement should be for free, either in or out of warranty (check your local Leica site). Shutter fixing "could" run in the €600 / €1200 region. M8's mostrly affected by shutter failures, ...

    An interesting and inspiring set set, different from the beaten path. The subtle "family graffity" in the above pic sort of reminds me of forthcoming Christmas. Thanks for sharing, Mauro
  • my Nikon 24-120mm, calibrated to perfection by Nikon, and a friend's Sigma 24-105. To sum up the experience, the 24-105 is very sharp in the image center and is blurry at any aperture in the ...
  • My Summicron 35mm v4 came with the round Leica shade - same as yours, I suppose. I bough on eBay a 39mm third party cap which can be easily slipped on and off with the shade in place. Best, M
  • I do agree with you, and I sold the A7r and lenses after I figured out what was left on the table due to raw compression. And I forgot to mention the mickeymouse autofocus: if the subject slightly ...
  • Looks interesting. Thanks, M -- Mauro http://www.maurobenphoto.com http://www.makropress.com/ http://www.romephotographyworkshop.com

    I had the A7r for six months up to last May, replaced by a LeicaM240, and the XT-1 as a backup camera and telephoto platform. While it is true that the A7r is a great camera that can be awesome, ...
  • You should also have considered the Nikon Df, which is a D4 in a quasi XT-1 body. The Df would allow you: to use your Nikon lenses, much better high iso image quality and incomparable autofocus. ...
  • My M240 does not recognise handmade codes (Match Tech kit & black sharpie), while the M9 did. Any ideas ? M
  • Between the Canon (or even the comparable Nikon) and the Fuji it is maybe a case of hair splitting from my side. My observation is that on a full frame body as the 5Dmk3, the 70-200 has a bit of ...
  • Replied in Thanks Sullyd
    I do not remember if I had the polarizer, I should check the exposure data. The scene lighting was quite uneven, though, and I applied luminance masks to tone down some peripheral distracting areas. ...
  • Replied in Thanks, Bob
    I was in Arches in 2006 and 2014, both times with digital cameras. Compared to 2014, in 2006 Arches was practically empty: easy to get clean shots but, as I got there totally unprepared, I missed ...
  • Replied in Thanks, Rod
    First, the 55-200mm is confirming to be a very good performer. I ended up keeping it, while my initial idea was to sell it once back from Utah. With the word "conservatively" I was suggesting that ...
