  • My understanding is that nobody knows the specific serial number range, but anything made after March 1, 2014 was made after the fix for the veiling flare was implemented.  The plane, gray box ...
  • Congratulations!  I expect you will be very happy.  I believe if you do a web search you can figure out what date of manufacture will guarantee the central veiling flare issue has been addressed. ...
  • Well, I have owned three different 50mm's for my Leica M's over the years.  I started with the current Summicron as my first rangefinder lens.  It was fantastic.  Only thing I didn't like about ...
  • If you want a manual focus lens, just try out some of the older AI Nikkors. I'd actually recommend the 50mm series 'E' lens designed originally for the Nikon EM. Lost camera, but the lens was ...
  • And what, pray tell, is the "Panasonic Look" to a video? Is that good or bad?
  • Replied in The Hole Truth
    It's not so much how the hole is drilled, but what material is used for the diaphragm. I prefer a titanium induced bikes to the carbon fiber bokeh favored by Zeiss. Let's not even speak about ...
  • Many years ago Kodak came out with the disc camera.  The camera was revolutionary in a few ways--it had a flat film plane, it had a molded glass aspheric lens, and it had automatic frame advance. ...
  • The obvious choice is the SF 40 that was just released.  It's a re-branded Nissin i40 but with the Leica TTL logic embedded.  It's much more capable than the SF 26.  It has both TTL and M ...
  • Replied in Without a hood
    Any lens can flare if the lighting conditions are wrong. What constitutes "wrong" will vary from lens to lens. Do you find this is a common problem with your D-Lux 4? More than with other cameras? ...
  • It's a nice camera.  I like the EVF and the control layout.  It's got much of of the "goodness" from the S, the M, and the T all combined in a single body.  A bit bigger than I would have liked. ...
  • By the way, I said "profile" where I meant "pre-set".  I would start just by using the default Adobe profile without any preset and see what adjustments you need to make.  Custom camera profiles, ...
  • As others have mentioned, the contrast in your Sony samples is MUCH higher than in the others.  Notice how your shadow regions have all gone to pure black?  Yet you are close to clipping ...
  • Hardly outdated. Perhaps not the class leader in terms of noise, but close enough that I certainly wouldn't call it outdated. Very few companies use their own sensors in their bodies, including...

  • Why is it people seem to feel that a product that isn't right for THEM is necessarily a bad product?

    With the SL Leica has:
    * The beginnings of a modern AF system
    * A platform for people with 'R'...
