  • 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 ...
  • Based on advice from this thread, got the L2 yesterday...khaki and tan. Nice bag.
  • Thanks to all for your feedback. It was really very helpful.
  • Excellent. I did not know that the L2 had this pocket. That changes everything. The photos online did not reveal it well as it just looked like extra space and not a compartment. Thanks.
  • Please help me here. Is the "front pocket" you are referring to an inside pocket? I have no/limited access to handling the bag and am referring to Internet photos.
  • So it appears that the Hadley Pro may be a tight fit by almost an inch whereas the L2 should fit fine. I was hoping to use the Hadley Pro as it provides a few more storage options such as fitting ...
  • I've tried a number of camera bags, especially messenger bags, and the shape of the XV w/EVF is so awkward that it just doesn't fit well. Thinking of getting a Hadley Pro to carry both an X1 w/OVF ...
  • Thanks Louis. Now where did I place my checkbook? :)
  • Louis, I still have and use my DL4, although not as much these days. The DL4 is still a very useful camera except it is challenged in shooting indoors and in available light. How is the 109 in that ...
  • Good for you Bazzer. Bravo! Nice images.
  • Some observations about DPR. It's a valuable site to gain insight into camera specific capabilities and features, but there's always lots of text juxtaposing and comparing camera A vs. camera B....

  • Not sure why you seem to have it in for Leica users. You know most Leica users also use DSLRS, but just for different stuff than their Leicas. It's ironic that I can't ever recall reading a Leica...

  • Not sure what motivates your assessment that "serious" photographer are on dpreview and then the bit about Leica photographers? Odd statement.

    Frankly, many of the posts I read on the forum are...

  • BTW, the first two images are the worst images I've seen taken with the X113 since its release. These are really bad images and I'm surprised that this working pro can't get a properly exposed...
