I have always wanted to step into the world of Leica, and now I've got 2.5k laying around to spend. I now have a Fuji X-system with 3 native lenses. However sometimes I hate how I have to change lenses in different situations. Then Leica X Vario came across. After seeing so many reviews I feel like XV is a great tool for photography, though it's slow. But for the same price range, I can get a M8 body and lenses like voigtlander to start the REAL rangefinder experience. IQ wise, which is...
I have never really considered the Leica before, but I am enjoying my Leica 25mm f1.4 and there is a unique way it renders my photos that I cant describe but love. I also have used other Leica optics and even though they are usually out of my price range, I think they have earned my respect for quality imaging. But I think this is an interesting comparison I hadnt considered until now. I think in many ways the Canon would win out as the more useful camera and probably do better in low...
Hi Folks: I want to upgrade from P&S. I saw these 3 cameras on sale (Boxing Day). 1) Panasonic DMC-GF3 with G X Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ($299 Cdn) 2) Panasonic DMC-GF5 with G Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 Standard zoom ($299 Cdn) 3) Sony NEX-5R with 18-55mm Lens ($399 Cdn) I like the GF5 but is the GF3 with the X PZ lens a better deal? Sony 5R at $399 is also very tempting. Any suggestion is appreciated. Fumanchu
Hi All: I am a novice and I have a PS camera Fuji f31. I saw Boxing day sale for Panasonic Lumix mirrorless camera. 1) Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 with G X Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 2) Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 with LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Both cost $299 Cdn. I read a lot of reviews and find the GF5 a slight improvement over the GF3. However, the GF3 comes with the PZ lens (heard it is quirky, though recent Amazon buyers seem to find it ok). Please...
I own a G5 and got both lenses for Christmas (I know, I'm a lucky sonofagun). It feels like overkill to have them both, and I pretty definitely wouldn't carry both around. I have the 14-42 lens as my everyday lens, so I'm kind of figuring I should keep the 45-175 X Vario, since it's so much lighter than the 14-140 (and SO much less expensive), and gives me the same range as the 14-140. Could someone either support that choice or talk me out of it with reasons why the 14-140 should be the...
I suspect some of you will find this one a bit odd, but here goes..... I'm thinking of adding a large sensor compact to the mix, and thought I'd ask here of all places. Simple questions for those of you who have a large sensor compact in the mix of gear you use? What do you think of it? What limitations do you encounter (beyond the blindingly obvious). Obviously, I'm mulling over something to accompany my Micro Four Thirds kit. Having shot nothing but larger sensor cameras for the past few...
I continue to be fascinated by the Leica X Vario. I have a few questions that maybe you folks can answer: Can you set the camera to shoot in a 16:9 aspect ratio? I've grown to enjoy that format and prefer to compose with it rather than crop to it during PP. Is there a live histogram available? I use the live histogram 100% of the time on my D-Lux 6. It really helps me dial in exposure, making the latitude of raw files much less necessary for everyday exposures. How is exposure compensation...
