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?...

First I'll start with the question " Does the Leica X1 give you that so called "Leica Pop" that i hear so much about? I understand that its a combination of many aspects of the camera, lens and how the photographer makes them work together, does this specific camera produce those results that I hear Leica is known for. Does it produce the type of images that make you consistently say "WoW"? A little about myself: Recently I have been devouring every article and review I can about the Leica X1...

Hi I am trying to use a Sigma 70-200 OS with an LA-EA2 and NEX-7 but cannot get focus magnification to work automatically - with a twist of the focus ring - any ideas what I should try? I currently have to manually select the zoom level for each shot (x5.9, x11.7)."MF Assist" is set to on in the NEX and MF is activated on the lens. Thanks!

I'm in the mood for some magnification for my 7D and I've been debating both of these lenses. I know a zoom is more versitle but I keep reading this prime offers better IQ. Will the 400 prime generate better IQ than the 100-400? I have the 70-200 2.8L USM II and I love it's IQ and overall picture quality and plan on getting the x1.4 III version converter for it which will put this combo at a max zoom of 280mm f5.6. I hear the prime 400 will not autofocus with this same x1.4 III converter and...

Does the Leica X Vario have a Leaf shutter as the  X1 ? ( I ask because then the flash can be used at faster shutter speeds outdoor for fill purposes ) Thanks.
