    For the EVF, you can look to the Olympus version. It's the same inside and a lot cheaper than Leica's version that differs only slightly by a more rounded shape and a lard LEICA label splashed ...
  • You will love the XV, and like so many of us, you will likely form a special bond with it. The way it captures light is truly magical. Can't wait to see your photos from it.  Good luck!
  • It looks like you have appropriately captured (reflected) her soul in this image. Composition, light and color are outstanding as always.  You have quite a talent and I love viewing your photos ...
  • So I have had my T since the 1st day it was introduced, and I change lenses quite often. I make it a point to turn the camera front  facing down when I remove the lens, and I have not had a dust ...
  • I don't have experience with the DL, but I will say that the XV is a very special yet under rated camera. Results are outstanding. Edge-to-edge sharpness, rich colors, and micro contrast are true ...
  • Replied in Leica T Help!
    Expensive but worth it. Fantastic handling and image quality. Renowned Leica sharpness, colors and micro contrast in a small DSLR replacement. Not good for sports. Highly under rated. AF & handling ...
  • I would recommend to buy the Leica lens hood instead. It gives the lens ample protection to avoid the need for a filter. That lens is made with rare earth glass. It's special, but I wouldn't want ...
  • So I traded my XV for a T a while ago, so I am relying on my memory here - but I want to try to be helpful. I think the EVF & LCD show a stopped-down  live view, so zooming or stopping down the ...
  • Best wishes with your new camera. Getting a used XV is a great move. That lens was designed by Peter Karbe, head of Leica's optics design team and it's a classic, and is made with special glass for ...
  • Both the T and XV are awesome cameras. Image quality from the XV's built in zoom is amazing as it is tightly mated to its sensor. It also does better in low light (with non moving objects) than ...
  • Raw files correct barrel distortion.
  • I personally think the lenses are up to Leica's high standard. I have owned a T since the day it was first released and I am very pleased.  The 1.4.3 firmware upgrade significantly improved startup ...
  • I recently formatted a 64GB Sandisk Pro Extreme card using the SD Formatter application's long method and it took a very long time. I didn't clock it, but I had to turn off my screen saver which ...
  • Wow. Nice shots and great camera performance. Thanks for sharing.
  • Congrats!  Great choice.  The X Vario is a great camera with a fantastic lens.  Truly a special and under-rated camera. The XV is surprisingly good in low light (as evidenced by your photo).  Enjoy ...
  • I highly recommend the X Vario. It is a real Leica with a genuine German Leica lens that is tack sharp and this, combined with the sensor give you great latitude to crop and with dynamic range. Tha ...
  • I goto to handle and shoot with the SL at Photplus Expo.  I tried it out with M lenses and the SL zoom (which is quite large compared to APS kit zooms). The EVF is wonderful for manually focusing M ...

    This is a lovely set. Great job. That lens really gives an artistic rendering. Actually - credit goes to the photographer - not the lens... You captured an atmosphere - not just beautiful images. ...
  • Here's a shot with the 35 Summicron that I quickly grabbed recently (probably at f/8). I think it speaks to the corner sharpness of M glass on the T. I will try to dig up better M/T comparo shots ...
