  • I use the WATE at 16mm myself for my M240 and Voigtlander Hilliar 15mm III.  It seems to work very well for me.  No issues to report.
  • Replied in M240p or not
    You can use the external evf, and that solves the wide angle, or extreme (longer than 90mm) telephoto issues.  I have one and sometimes use it, but I prefer optical external viewfinders for 28 to ...
  • Replied in M240p or not
    There is quite a substantial difference in size when you take hold of either camera. This is especially true if the SL has it's zoom attached, putting it in the same league as your Nikon D800. You ...
  • I would find a 15" MBP to be too heavy for travels, but if you have to you have to.  I travel with a Mac Book Air, or recently an iPad Pro 9.7".  I don't do much processing while travelling, and ...
  • Replied in M240p or not
    The image quality has little to do with it.  The SL and M are really for different types of work.  Myself, I favor the M.  You could fund it by dropping either the Nikon sysetem or the Sony ...
  • I agree as well.  LR should probably not allow direct entry of non-color preset labels.  It can get a bit confusing!  I have now deleted my non-color labels, and replaced them with keywords where ...
  • Thanks!  That appears to be the solution.
  • Brandon, that's the way to delete keywords but has nothing to do with labels.
  • I am not referring to color labels or keywords (or metadata presets).  If you select a picture in the Library module, and look at the metadata in the column on the right you will see text entry ...
  • Created discussion thread Lightroom question
    Could any of you LR gurus out there answer me this?  I have assigned a number of labels to some of my pictures. (The labels appear in the last column when viewing the metadata)  However, I can't ...
  • I have an Olympus EM5 and I also have a couple of Sekonic meters including an L-398 that I use on my meter-less film cameras. These are very good meters and agree closely with my digital in-camera ...
  • At only 50% full you should notice hardly any difference in performance.  I doubt if reloading the HD would make any difference.  Getting a lot of HD "churning" often means that the HD is getting ...
  • I use a 2014 MacMini (i7 processor, 16G RAM, and 512G SSD) for my photoshop and lightroom work.  The files are from my Leica M and large film scans.  I know a professional who uses a D810 and Sony ...
  • But not beyond mine :-) I think the camera looks wonderful, and the files I have seen from this machine are also wonderful. Anyone who likes B&W photography (and there are lots of us) and anyone...

  • Close, but it does have video (although I can't imagine anyone getting this for B&W video production), and it does have an add-on EVF, which can be quite useful for critical focus or for unusual...

  • Daedalus2000 You are right! It certainly did need cleaning. :-) Unfortunately, the Leica sensor needs to be more carefully watched for this as it doesn't have the vibration cleaning that other ...
  • Thanks.  I think MF would work very well in a situation like this, although I was using AF-C and low speed drive.  The cyclists did not all follow the same path, so I think AF-C was probably ...
  • I was in Barcelona this June and it was certainly crowded!  I usually find however that if I am patient, gaps in the crowds occur.  My wife is very understanding and just goes off to find a seat, ...
  • Created discussion thread Barcelona with the M240
    Some examples of the work of Gaudi.  Taken with my M(240).  The color shots were using the Zeiss 35 1.4 Distagon, and the B&W shots were taken using the Zeiss 21 2.8 Biogon. Sagrada Familia ...
  • Created discussion thread MFT does PanAm games
    I do't shoot sports, so the fact that my OMD5 (original version) is not considered the correct kit for sports did not bother me at all. However the recently finished PanAm games cycling events ...
