  • The M240's Thumbs Up (Match Technical) on the M10 leaves some space between shaft and camera body. But can be used, if it does not bend over tiem. Match Technical makes a special Thumbs Up fo the ...
  • Owning a M240-paired 35 fle and having tested the Ultron f1.7, without getting into the respective photos merits I can confirm that wide open there is little match between the two lenses. Stopped ...
  • Replied in M10 v's M-P240
    There are improvements over the M240. Some are easily appreciated, like the lcd, the useable iso ceiling, the quicker shutter re-cock, the improved continous shooting. Some are subtle, like the ...
  • Replied in Same-ish lag
    I tested the M10 on last saturday, 2 hours shooting with a demo kindly loaned by the Leica Store. In live view there still is the shutter lag, as it take time for the shutter to close, open and ...
  • It seems that the camera does not de-activate the lens' oss even if the "steady shot" is off. Firmware bug, I presume. Best, M
  • Well, the concept of setting effects on / off helping focus performance is always surfacing as the way to avoid stopdown. Currently A7 bodies are delivered with the latest fw installed, but new ...
  • John, I have to try BBF with afc, but suspect it has to keep pressed in order to have continous focus. I usually position the focus point almost where I want the main subject, depress the shutter ...
  • As from fw 3.0, "settings effect" has no impact on AF performance as the f4 zooms, GM lenses and the 50/1.8 always focus in stop-down (i.e. at the indended shooting aperture) either in "ON" or ...
  • I'm sorry, with all due respect, it looks like both of you: (a) have a personal understanding of what "better lens performance" means and / or (b) never tested the 3 mentioned lenses side by side ...
  • The GM is way weaker than both the Batis 25mm and SZ 55mm at any aperture, and all the focal lengths in between will not compensate that, In any case, try before you buy. Both the 24-70 I tested ...
  • I owned the XT1 for two years and switched to the A7R2 in last Dec. In principle, focus speed depends on individual lenses and focus accuracy depends on both individual lens and shooting conditions. ...
  • I might be wrong, but your paper refers to lossy compressed ARW's. I only capture uncompressed ARW's and then convert to lossless compressed DNG's. In any case, nothing to excuse, from my side ... ...
  • Replied in Agreed ...
    I thank you for the info. But, forgive me, thinking that one could test the 16-35 only at 35mm and f4 projects a good deal of naivety ... Actually, I test lenses (i) statically, i.e. on tripod at ...
  • All the opinion expressed in this thread are subject to respective "personal interest or lack thereof" or "personal opinion or lack thereof" on the issue. I could not find so far, even if trying ...
  • Replied in Agreed ...
    maybe paired with the Batis 25mm. Actually, after having tested 3 copies of the 16-35/4, I concluded that on the A7R2 it is not that great - particularly given that image perifery is never sharp ...
  • Two decentered, one simply awful, the last one (probably "good") never getting really sharp outside image center on my A7R2 (and dreadful at 35mm). I am really done with the 16-35/4 (and with the ...
  • In prints fractalised foliage shows up. Bayer is the best compromise, actually That's what I used as a starting point with raf's, as to mimic the jpeg's.
  • The little cutie kept slipping from my fingers (and reverting the 2 dials to default too).
  • Compared to your Xpro1, the T is fiddly to use and uncomfortable to hold long time without nerdish cases - which by the way destroy native looks. Basic sensor is the same, i.e. Sony 16 mpx apsc, so ...
  • Rubberdials, if you go through any Lensrentals "teardown", even on Sony lenses, you will notice that design weaknesses and shortcuts are clearly highlighted.

    Sony, and other lens producers as...
