  • My last week test with the A9 was negative on stopdown: the 24-70 GM (and the f4 as well) focus in stopdown. But the GM looks infallible in good ligh (the f4 much less). The A9 starts focus ...
  • I was hinted that the price of the D850 will be "in line with the current D810".

    Having said that, having owned both the Df and the D810 at the same time, as much as "retro controls" are nice to...

  • Great list, Jim. A concise reminder of reasons why I dropped MF film a few years ago, "uncreative time" being the most oppressive. Thanks, M
  • https://www.amazon.com/Photographers-Guide-Canyon-Northern-Arizona/dp/0811729001/ref=sr_1_56?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1500294666&sr=1-56&keywords=grand+canyon+photography It is quite detailed and ...
  • Thanks to recent Leica Camera policy and communication, the M240 is totally stalled in both new and, more importantly, used markets. It is actually turning very cheap as it trades as ised in the € ...
  • Thanks Jono ! When given the M10 for testing, I could not activate auto iso when setting both aperture and shutter speed and was told that auto iso in manual exposure had been removed compared to ...
  • Rodrigue, we could discuss for days on that, as we clearly have different requirements and standards. In a sense, we can agree to disagree. Best, M
  • for setting out the process in a plain and clear way. I tried many times to go "fully manual", which however implies on the possibility to switch iso very easily (while the M10 and other cameras ...
  • Rodrigue, that is hardly a statement to share ... I owned or tested almost all the digital M iterations, which served as the backbone of my photography since 2009 (when I paired an M8 to the MP as ...
  • We both express personal opinions based on real world shooting (I did not test the M10 in a vacumm or studio, but on the street). Based on my requirements and standards, the M240 is still ahead the ...
  • I made the side-by-side M10 / M240 with raw files only, with the same -i.e. zero - post processing. The differences I detected are relating to the sensors respective reactions in various ISO / ...
  • Thats' exactly what I was trying to imply: microcontrast gives M240 files a level of "presence" that I find it difficult to replicate. My recent - and so far disastrous - tests with the Sony A9 are ...
  • Actually the M10's viewfinder is an improvement over the M240 (slightly bigger) as well and he lcd, which can be used for manual focus since focus peaking is readable in most situations. For me ...
  • I noticed in both side by side M240 / M10 and individual M10 photos that the M240 has more micro details and that above 800 ISO the M10 loses details (compared to the M240), maybe due to what ...
  • Everyone has his or her own standards. I use the M240 for documentary and landscape photography. The M10 omits rgb histogram, electronic level, auto-ISO in manual exposure, half stops in the iso ...
  • It depends on what is your kind of street photography. The A7R2, which I used paired to a Leica Q to complement the latter's 28mm, in dynamic scenes works best in AF-C as it acquires focus only ...
  • 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 ...
