trying to find out if I can tell the mfg date of a Leica X1 by the serial number--I think it is on the lens..I have been looking for a good used X1, buy don't want a 5 year old one, too expensive to have work done when it goes bad.

Hey all! I'll begin a trip to Europe March next year and would like to know which camera should I choose down to 350 bucks. I've seen some Pana LF1, Canon S110, Olympus ZX2, Fuji X1, but I can't make my mind on those... I would need a rugged camera that could provide me the best possible pictures, either at landscapes and at night, since I'll be camping most of the time. Another point is that I'll be cycle touring, meaning that space is a important mather, so I've discarded bridge and super...

At present I have a 40D and 70D with 18-135 STM/50 1.8/85 1.8/70-200L 2.8 (non IS), with Lightroom 5, I mainly shoot sport/basketball as a hobby. Photos are used on local club/league web sites. In the last 6-8 months I have started to take a keen interest in wildlife photography, mammals and birds mainly. I would like to expand into this area, the main issue is reach of lens (far too much cropping) the options I am looking at are: Canon 300mm 2.8L IS Mk2 with x1.4 and x2 Extenders. 1DX and...

I'm going to start shooting a lot of high school and college sports (baseball and soccer mainly, sometimes football) and don't have the budget for an f.2.8 lens. I have to decide on a 400mm f.5.6 or a 300mm f.4, sometimes adding the x1.4 III extender to the latter. Most of the time I'll be shooting with daylight but I'll also have some night games, specifically soccer. What would you recommend in terms of sharpness (very important to me) and focusing accuracy and speed? I'm shooting with a 1DX.

I want to add focal range to my kit, right now my 35-100 f/2.8 is the longest lens aside from a legacy 135mm f/2.8.  I am looking at the well regarded FT50-200/2.8-3.5, using a mmf3 to preserve the weather seal for use on EM-5.  As opposed to opting for a FT teleconverter for use with only one lens, if /or when there is a native teleconverter for the MFT would it be possible to use it in conjunction with adapted lens as well as the faster native lens? thanks in advance for any input, I am...

Does anyone know any other extension tubes which allow the use of SDM-AF, correct metadata and normal screwdrive AF other than the Kenko 25mm? I am quite pleased with the combination of DA*300mm F4 + Kenko 25mm extension tube + HD TC x1,4. It gives a 1:2.3 maximum magnification at a MFD of 125cm. The magnification is more than good enough for 80% of my macro uses. The image quality is outstanding (everyone knows what the DA*300 is capable of). And the distance you can keep to your subjects is...

A thing that has struck me immediately is the EC dial. I understand the need to make it somewhat stiff, but on my camera the dial will hardly move using my thumb (when looking through the EVF). I need to use a fair amount of pressure, or the thumb just slips on the dial. If I get it to move, it usually does so in several jumps. My impression is that the lateral force (pressing hard against the dial) warps the mechanism and makes it even stiffer. If I use thumb and index finger, pinching the...

What recommendations do you have?  Looking for least distortion.  Chroma isn't as much an issue.  Prime or short zoom.  Something that would give a 20mm in legacy 35mm terms.  This would be used on an X1Pro EVF Thanks for any input. --http://chkphotography.zenfolio.com/

I need some help! I have the Sony SEL 16-70 4.0 za (zeiss branded). I also have the Sony a7. I also happen to love the Leica X2, which I once owned, but had to sell to finance the a7. Now I have the opportunity to trade the 16-70 for a Leica X1. When I use the 16-70 on the a7 it is cropped to 10mp. The Leica X1 is 12mp. Should I trade or hang on to the 16-70. Your view on this would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Best regards Morten

Hi, I just picked up an E-520 on ebay cheap. It is my first DSLR before that I have had point and shoots. I know by todays standards it is a little dated, but thought it would be a good camera to learn on before I spend a lot on a new unit. I want to order a new CF card (or several) but I cant seem to find what cards the camera supports. I am hoping some of you have or have Had this camera that could answer a few questions for me Will it take a 16gb card? What speed will it write at maximum?...
