  • Good advice. One proviso is that Photo Ninja has to recognize the lens, i.e. the lens must be identified in the EXIF. If it is, then using automatic distortion correction is very easy. Rob
  • Bill, thanks for the clarification. Rob
  • It would be much appreciated if someone would summarize what is the best setting for DR and noise for those of us who do "normal" photography. I am not technically savvy enough to figure out ...
  • I agree wholeheartedly. The Q is a sensational travel camera, and used skillfully, it can produce excellent portraits. 28mm is not a classic portrait focal length, but who says that everything has ...
  • The price of the SL just dropped substantially. Is there an SL2 about to be released?  We shall see. Rob
  • I am well aware of the many excellent qualities of the Q, but I think that making it with an M mount would add redundancy to the Leica lineup and draw sales away from the more expensive and ...
  • I think that you may have missed my point. The Q's greatest appeal may be its lightning fast and accurate autofocus. If you lose that by mounting MF only lenses, who, exactly, is going to want it, ...
  • The Q is primarily an autofocus camera. How would you propose that M lenses be focused on a Q body? If you say that they would be focused manually, then that would mean parasitizing sales of M ...
  • I own both a Q and an RX1, and to me the difference in size and weight is barely noticeable in actual use, i.e. carrying the camera on a wrist strap for hours at a time. The haptics of the Q are ...
  • That's quite interesting. Thanks. Rob

    I was always aware that I was speculating. No harm in that. But you did some of your own when you said that the TL2 would be the same as the A6500, only with fewer features. That may not turn out...

  • Thorsten, in the video review, you state several times that the image quality from the TL2 is as good as that from the M10. Do you really think that the smaller sensor performs as well as the ...

    @Marty4650...No, I am not confused. My point was that the TL2 may deliver better IQ than the A6500, based on my experience with the Leica Q vs the RX1 and A7ii. Leica may have discovered the secret...

  • I understand, but I also understand the value of IS. It allows you to shoot at slower speeds and, thus at lower ISOs, which helps both with noise and dynamic range. Of course, with moving ...

    I often use Zeiss and Leica lenses on my A7ii, but the IQ, though excellent, is still not up to the Q's. BTW, there are many users who consider the RX1's lens to be the best 35mm in the world, not...

  • I was interested in the TL2 until I discovered that neither the camera body or any of the T/TL lenses have image stabilization. For me, that's a deal-breaker. Rob
  • Depending on the image, I sometimes set the Prime luminance strength below 20. I don't mind subtle grain in my photos. In fact, on occasion I will add it deliberately. Rob

    You completely misunderstood the point I was making. Of course people can spend their money as they please. But being rich does not equate with being smart. That is so obvious that it needs no...

  • Commented on article Leica TL2 first impressions

    You know, 4 months ago, I might have agreed with your assessment, but then I made the totally illogical decision to buy a Leica Q (used). What I discovered is that the Q absolutely smokes my RX1...

  • Commented on article Leica TL2 first impressions

    I just watched Thorsten Overgaard's Field Test Review of the TL2, in which he states repeatedly that the image quality is as good as M10's. That's quite a statement, almost unbelievable, but...
