  • Any chance the light is bright enough that sometimes your shutter speed is above the maximum synch speed for flash? Under those circumstances, the flash wouldn't fire, and it would explain your ...
  • I'm not certain how this is a nail in the coffin of Leica? Can the Sony prime take excellent pictures? I'm sure it can. Frankly, though, ANY modern m4/3 or larger camera with a good prime ought to ...
  • I believe it's more like a 1.7x premium, not a 2-3x premium, and you do get some extras. If you don't think the extra tweaks and software are worth the premium, that's fine. Just get the Panasonic ...
  • Sorry--don't know what I was thinking. Must have forgotten which forum I was on.
  • If you compare Leica cameras on specifications and cost, they will never come out on top--whether it is the rebranded Panasonics, the Leica M, or even the medium format S. They always cost more ...
  • Wow, you really are the mirrorless crusader, aren't you? I certainly agree that a full frame system is likely to cost more, weigh more, and be larger than an "equivalent" m4/3 system. But to ...
  • I, too, have a Hadley Digital bag that I use for most occasions.  It does force you to minimize your kit (usually a good thing).  I generally try to limit myself to two lenses rather than three, ...

    Forgot to mention... Make sure you use a tripod and a cable release (or the self timer) for all your comparisons. You want to remove camera shake as a variable. (1) Jared

    I agree with xtoph. The best thing to do is to eliminate some of the variables. Is your dissatisfaction with the 28 because the lens is defective? Because your M is out of calibration? Because you ...
  • I don't think one can answer your question reasonably without taking into account the specific use cases. For example, if I am taking a landscape shot it is very unlikely I would be using either ...
  • The more I have been working with my Leica M9 and M(240) over the past few years, the more I have come to a rather startling conclusion, at least it’s startling to me. In terms of technical image ...
  • Replied in Leica M QM2
    QM2 is supposed to indicate a cosmetic defect. Now that 'M's" are in slightly better supply, I don't think I would want to pay full price for a camera with a blemish. I would want a discount, but ...
  • They can't be dead pixels or they would be smaller. Also, dead/cold pixels are generally mapped out and removed in pre-processing before the camera is shipped. Nope, it's foreign matter of some ...
  • Love the second image, Choi! - Jared
  • WATE = Leica "Wide Angle Tri Elmar"--a click-stop 16mm-21mm zoom. - Jared
  • If weight is the issue, I'd recommend looking through all your older photos--preferably tourist type stuff--and see what focal lengths you actually use.  I suspect you will find that with your ...
  • Replied in Jared
    I'm certainly not telling you aren't seeing what you see in your images.  I loved the results I got out of my M9 under most lighting conditions as long as I wasn't too far above base ISO.  I'm ...
  • Your friend must be mistaken about some aspect of the shots.  If there is no cropping, perspective and field of view are determined solely by the focal length of the lens, the size of the image ...
  • I'm glad if you all like the colors and tonality coming out of your M9's, but I can assure you it has nothing to do with CMOS vs CCD. The variations of spectral response in visible light are much ...
  • Wow, I loved my M9 for a lot of things, but tonality sure wasn't one of them. I spent a lot of time when I first got it struggling with reds and keeping magentas out of skin tones, and while the ...
