  • Hendrik, I’ve read your blog for a long time and am an admirer of your photography—you helped me with my black and white photography on Fuji quite a lot! Nice to hear that you’re now on the M10M. ...
  • Replied in New 35mm lens
    I own the 35mm f/1.4 II single-coated, but I use it only for film photography with an M2, so I'm probably less demanding of the optics than you'll be. I like the lens. It's small and well-built, ...
  • Ah, fantastic. I should've just searched. Off to read!
  • Created discussion thread Do you keep your scanned negatives?
    I've been carefully archiving my negatives in sleeves. But increasingly I'm asking: Why? I'm a hobbyist, not a professional. I develop and scan myself at home. My scans are really high quality, or ...
  • I feel like I'm going crazy—I just posted about how I don't see myself changing my camera setup anytime soon, and yet looking at these pictures I can't help thinking about selling my Q2 and M2 and ...
  • One argument in favor of this kind of feature is the high resolution of the camera. At 47mp, you're already shooting a kind of digital medium format. The camera already lets us pretend that we're ...
  • I moved from a big collection of Fuji X-mount gear to a small Leica setup—a Q2 and an M2 with two Voigtlander lenses. The prices were painful, but my current kit costs about what I'd spent on my ...
  • Replied in Q2 viewfinder
    Which AF mode are you using? I've found the spot mode to be faster and less hesitant than the area mode. But it's also true that the contrast-based autofocus is hesitant, in general, in low light, ...
  • Beautiful! That yellow is gorgeous.
  • Thank you! I agree that I like the film pictures a little more—and there are many others that I’m  not sharing for privacy reasons, and the pattern largely holds. I recently got back from a ...
  • Created discussion thread Q2 vs. M2, recent photos
    I’ve been shooting with both cameras for a while—the Q2 longer than the M2. They’re really different. I think I enjoy the film M more than the digital Q, but they both have their place. Using film ...
  • I would really enjoy having more options for the framelines. I’d like to see a square frame superimposed upon the EVF. The problem is: what’s the field of view of the square? The same goes for the ...
  • I have no idea what I’m talking about, but here are my impressions. First, I do think there’s something with the Leica sensors and/or lenses. I really do think that the black-and-white conversions ...
  • I have two profiles: one for me, one for when I hand the camera to someone else. The profile I use has spot AF, a black and white viewfinder, etc. The one I hand off to other people uses Face ...
  • I’ve just never been able to “gel” with zoom lenses. One reason is that I really only like three focal lengths—28mm, 35mm, and 50mm—and am quite happy to carry just one or two primes. Also, with ...
  • Replied in Query
    My understanding is yes with the Q, not really with the Q2. Although I’ve put tape over my speaker and mic holes for superstitious reasons. The GR is especially vulnerable to this problem because ...
  • Awesome. I bet you’ll love it. I like the YouTube channel Adventure & Art—he has a “one year with the Q2” video that’s well worth watching. As is his M6 video, and many others.
  • Owned an X-Pro3 and X100V, and shot with Fuji for many years before that. Sold it all to buy a Q2, and now use a Q2 and an M2. There was a brief period where I owned Fuji and Leica at the same ...
  • Replied in Q2M in Maui
    These are awesome.
  • It doesn't seem that objectionable to me. I'm not some hand-wavey hippie, but as a hobbyist I've definitely been on a "journey" with photography. It has to do with my evolving tastes and goals, ...
