  • Richgym The EVF ( I use the Olympus one, works as well, half the price) is very good with the 90mm Summicron. You can see clearly what is in the frame and with magnification, activated by turning ...
  • Having gone from the M9 to the M, there is little size difference, M a little heavier but otherwise a huge leap forward in every way, in particular smaller details. M9 files have a certain look but ...
  • Me Ow
  • I have an M and a Nikon D4, there are times when the D4 clearly easier but it is not the perfect answer that it might seem, you are never quite sure where the AF has selected. Whilst with the ...
  • With my M9 I liked the black and white JPG with medium higher contrast, I was eventually able to get a LR preset which was very close, I found playing with the colour filter bars on the black and ...
  • Its worth checking that you are not on an Auto ISO setting, many cameras seem to get confused with fill in flash when auto iso is on, just a thought.
  • Despite all the internet buzz, everyones needs are a little different and one needs to see if it fills your requirements. For me the M240 was a huge improvement on my M9 others are not so ...
  • My 28mm Summicron is fabulous on the M but pretty indifferent on an OLy OM-D EM1, 50 lux is ok and the  90 Summicron pretty good. I wouldn't be too surprised to find that the T will make some ...
  • Had a Zeiss 21/2.8  sharp, not so keen on the mechanical side of the lens,  but the 18mm Super Elmar is stunning, very attractive rendering, handles well, I am using the lens a lot.
  • Having gone from M9 to M240, was it worth it, yes !!!!! The M9 produces great pictures but........long list M240 better build quality, better ergonomics, better files, quieter , better battery life. ...
  • I think it is worth commenting that the M240 is a huge improvement on the M9, I was pleasantly surprised on the breadth of the upgrade. I think a succession of minor improvements is likely, faster ...
  • 28mm Summicron is very sharp wide open and stopped down, don't forget diffraction will rob you of sharpness stopping down beyond f8. I don't have experience of the 2.8 Elmarit but would be ...
  • I had a Voigtlander 21mm f4, terrible, serious centring issues, immediately returned it for the Zeiss 21mm f2.8, using the Leica coding seriously sharp images, sold it when I sold my M9, ( ...
  • I sold my M9 last summer and bought an Olympus OMD EM! with the 12-40/2.8 and a Leica adapter. The Olympus is a good camera, the control layout is very good indeed, preferable to my workhorse D4, ...
  • I've always thought a sensor that not only captured the light falling on a pixel but the rate at which light falls upon a pixel would allow a true RAW and enable the exposure to be adjusted at...

  • I would imagine you are the best person to judge this............ For what it's worth I find the D4 to be a very competent camera, I know a  couple of people who swear by the Canon. In practice ...
  • I like the EM-1 results are good, the ergonomics excellent, really excellent and the camera is small. On holiday or any outing where photography is not the reason for going, then the Olympus is ...
  • I use the D4 and D800 for weddings and other commercial shoots. The D800 I use to 6,400 happily and the D4 to 12,800. In  both cases if you have to you can go 1 stop beyond but the quality does ...
  • The loading of cost on buying prints has one major attraction to a client, they are buying a picture that they know they like. If they pay up front, they are buying a product they hope they will like.
  • Interesting thread. I recently exchanged a Leica M9 for an EM1, keeping my Leica 28/2 and 50?1.4. I enjoyed the M9 but the ergonomics of the EM1 are really good and manual focusing is easier than ...
