  • How did you get it for such a good price?  I didn't think prices for new Leicas were negotiable.  Nice work.
  • It's now available for preorder on the BH Photo website: $899.  Quick rollout.  Expected availability early November.
  • Created discussions LX100 $899 USD
    According to 43Rumors this morning. http://www.43rumors.com/ft5-new-gm5-and-lx100-to-cost-899/ After tomorrow morning, I may raid the piggy bank.
  • The new super D-Lux (sort of) is presumably a Leica-fication of the LX100 everyone is expecting from Panasonic on Monday.  Do we really expect Leica to announce its version then, too?  Does Leica ...
  • Replied in Guess not.
    Bummer.
  • First, the quality of the images is excellent given the size of the camera.  (I rented one in July and was amazed -- it's the size of a cell phone.) Second, I really like your eye for the first two ...
  • I'd be fascinated to compare a max (2x90mm) izoom image with that of a 90mm image cropped and enlarged to the same scale. But only if you have the time and interest!  (You'd think there'd be ...
  • Created discussions LX7 to LF1 comparison
    Can anyone help me with a comparison of images of the LX7 at 90mm cropped and enlarged to the equivalent of the LF1 at 200mm? I know that the image quality of the LX7 is superior for low light ...

    Since you asked... I've been an enthusiastic photographer for years, still own two R8 bodies with 4 primes.  I use the lenses now with a 60D -- good, but I'm looking forward to buying a full frame ...
  • Great shots, Paul.  You've set the bar high.
  • Created discussions Leica C advice?
    I'm going to be renting a Leica C-112 for a golf trip to the U.K.  I'll only have a day to practice with it before taking off. Do any of you veterans have advice on: 1) preferred modes 2) sweet ...
  • Replied in Ease of use?
    Nice images, for sure. I'm considering renting one for a trip to Scotland, and I'm wondering how easy it would be to handle right out of the box. Also, in your opinion, what was the "sweet spot" in ...
  • I like the lake for the way it adds visual depth.  All shots are superb, and they may tip the balance in my decision between LF1 and LX7.  And then there's the LX8...
  • Tony, Wonderful image! Do you have a site where you display a lot of your LF1 images? I'm on the fence, and I'd love to see a variety, especially portraits, green landscapes, and on-stage ...
  • I believe that f/1.2  allows roughly 36% more light than f/1.4, which you can compute by squaring the ratio (1.4/1.2).
  • Was it a manual exposure or did the LF1 figure it out automatically?  If the latter, what mode did you use? 2:00 a.m. is pretty impressive, unless you were above the Arctic Circle...
  • Replied in What?
    Leica literally can't make it soon enough for me.  I'm leaving on a trip of a lifetime on July 18th, so  Panny's rumored 7/16 announcement date means I'm outta luck. My only compact, other than a ...

    As a not very technical guy, I'm wondering how 4K makes a difference for posting on YouTube.

    As I understand it, STM (stepper motor) focusing provides for continuous autofocusing during videography but only for specially equipped bodies, e.g, the T5i and the 70D. The 60D came out before ...
  • Created discussions 15-85 vs. 18-135 STM on a 60D
    For a couple of years I've had a 60D with some legacy prime glass.  It has nice IQ though manual focusing grows harder for me every year. However now my wife and teenage daughters want to borrow ...
