Re: A Leica M10 Review

Yes, pretty much all modern digital cameras have plenty of dynamic range at lower ISOs now - way more than can be displayed on most screens or in print.

However, the M10’s metering when using the rangefinder can be unpredictable in high contrast scenes, especially with wide angle lenses and a subject that combines a bright sky with clouds and a lot of foreground shadow. I tend to switch to live-view in such cases, but more dynamic range would help avoid the need to do this.

Incidentally, the biggest issue I have with blown highlights is the colour shift when pulling down in LR or Capture One (yellow tints). But DXO now has profiles for the M10 and it allows good highlight recovery without colour problems. I am not sure I want to switch completely to DXO, but it is occasionally very useful both for burned highlights and also high ISO noise reduction.
