  • Leica will continue to explore a presence in the high-end compact/P&S market as it's a viable price point market; i.e. about $2K more or less. Not everyone can afford or want an M or Q. Great ...
  • BTW, IMO, the film bodies may not appreciate, but will probably hold their own. They may even  drop slightly but it will be marginal at most. The lenses will continue to appreciate.
  • About 10 years ago I purchased 2 Leica MPs and a 28, 35, 50, and 90 lenses as well as a couple of Leicavits that Leica was offering as a promotion. These were during the dark days of Leica when it ...
  • Given your desires and constraints, I recommend that you go with Olympus as a starter. See this link: ...
  • Created discussions FAO Schwartz Is Closing
    Remember the movie BIG? Playing Chopsticks
  • Replied in XV for x
    I feel the same about the X1 having used the X2 as well. In any event, a 35 prime and 28-70 zoom are a great combination.
  • Replied in XV for x
    You might want to consider getting a used X1 or X2, and keeping your XV. X1's can be had pretty cheaply these days. The loss on trading in your XV is probably equal to the cost of a used X1. I have ...
  • Could you provide some insight regarding your ownership and use of the camera? Likes and dislikes? Overall impression? There are few if any owner/users and I'm sure many would be interested in ...
  • A few years ago I faced a similar dilemma on a trip to Paris. SLR or high-end P&S? This was back awhile when the DL4 was the rage. Mind you the DL4 has a much more restrictive ISO range (high end) ...
  • X series are a world different than the DLux line, including the D109. I don't think it makes sense to save up to buy a used X2 when you can buy a used X1 for about the price of the D109, perhaps ...
  • +1. I have an Alice (L2) in Tan. Great bag. Surprisingly roomy for its size.
  • 1+; Godfrey is correct.
  • I've dealt with Leica USA over the years on a number of issues, and have always received outstanding service and support.
  • I'm thinking of getting one so I can use my R lenses which are gathering dust. Haven't decided on which version of the A7 makes the most sense and which adapter is best? Getting the A7II would ...
  • Replied in Winter Cycle
    Pretty cool. B&W or color; machts nicht.
  • Nice article. Nice pics.
  • Good for you! It's nice that Leica gets it. Few other camera makers really do. My experience with Leica has been similar to yours. This is another instance of the Leica experience and something you ...
  • A few years ago I sold my D300 setup and got out of Nikons and APS-C entirely. Thinking of getting back in because there are some excellent deals on  D7100 kits (18-140 and 55-300) for $1496 at ...
  • I recommend that you call Leica USA in NJ. Their number is 800-222-0118. As to speak with Dave Elwell to someone else in the Service or Technical Dept.
  • Replied in any..
    So you removed the battery and reinserted a card and still the same issue? Based on what you stated, I believed it was a software/firmware issue and not a mechanical issue of actually reading the ...
