  • Peter It's excellent Lieca are taking this issue seriously and it's good news they are replacing the sensor. However I don't necessarily see this as a 'new CCD' announcement. It sounds more like ...

    Raaj, Put your money where your mouth is and show us some shots from London :) Paul
  • No, no, no this shot would have been missed with a Q. This shot required something quicker..... P
  • Kostas, Great shot. Be honest is it a crop ? Would you have taken this if you had a camera with auto focus....... ? P -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/47134895@N05/
  • One of the advantages of the Q to me is that it is a simple camera with a fast AF, that allows me to get on with the process of taking pictures rather than worrying about settings. So the ...
  • Thomas, These people look pretty normal to me ! Of this set I really like the one of the gent, his glasses and his dog. Great stuff Paul -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/47134895@N05/
  • John, The first shot is absolutely wonderful. Paul -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/47134895@N05/
  • Replied in Conclusion
    My dealer has agreed to replace the screen. It has also been reported to Germany. Thanks everyone. Paul
  • Replied in Q EVF Screen
    They are Acrylic, but I think the damage is from the metal bridge of the frame. Perhaps I need to buy some plastic frames. :) Paul
  • Replied in Q EVF Screen
    It could be the coating and not the glass. Either way the marks cannot be removed. paul
  • Jeff, To be perfectly honest I have not been looking for keynoting or warped straight lines. But I would agree the example you have given does look more pronounced than I would have expected. As I ...
  • I take a lot of architectural shots where distortion is important to me. For this type of photography I use much slower wide manual focus primes which have no distortion. The summilux is a fast ...
  • MaticB Totally agree with you. I'm not suggesting these are amazing photographs but I do think they demonstrate the type of situation that you can more easily photograph - as in the first shot - ...
  • No I am mostly using the view finder. I haven't really thought about using the touch for street photograhy. Maybe I should. I've found the AF extremely good actually. So far I say it's  equally if ...
  • That's kind but I think it really is the image quality that is on show here and I think it's terrific!!! paul
  • Created discussions Enjoying the Q ....
    I think I'm going to get on with this camera..... Paul
  • Replied in Q EVF Screen
    Yes, I've written to Leica. I do think its a bit of a design fault. It should be Saphire Glass or whatever they call it. Leica would have known that lots of old men like me with glasses are going ...
  • Replied in Q EVF Screen
    No they are scratches. I just assumed the Glass would be toughened. Clearly I was wrong. p
  • Replied in Thank you
    Thank you for your help. I will definitely look at the 55 1.8. The 35mm also looks good, but I did say that I would be using the A7r as a backup. I will be using other cameras with wider lenses to ...
  • Created discussions Q EVF Screen
    Just a quick note to new Q owners to advise that the EVF cover screen is very easy to scratch with eye glasses :( I have only used my Q for 2 1/2 days and there are quite a few marks on the ...
