  • Are those NEF files compressed in some manner? Normal is 42MB per file; these seem to be in the 20-22MB size range.

    I checked my samples, and older DPR and IR samples, there seem to be something...

    Well those tools available to you would include downloading higher ISO samples from as many sources as you can. (I'll assume you can't readily try the SL, but that opportunity may come...

    CR:

    Try the SL body with the bigger zoom if you can.

    I believe that you said y'all at DPR didn't have access to that bigger zoom.

    I found it very well balanced. Did not carry it around for a day...

    Sumicron:

    "Leica digital stuff" includes new sumicron lenses, like the 8,000usd 50mm f/2.0 APO.

    I suggest trying it, on an M body, or SL body --or yes the Ricoh A12 module.

    Clint Dunn,

    The watch thing is silly. Leica lenses do things others don't while expensive watches don't do things inexpensive watches do. And as you say in many regards that $100 Casio is better...

    s1rf4n:

    Why am I incorrect?

    Have you tried the bodies that DXO scores badly? I have.

    Have you dug around on the DXO website and found how it's mostly modelling not testing based? I have--though...

    "I can't imagine a full time working professional photographer , who wouldn't need snappy AF."

    There was a world before AF.

    Try using a rangefinder.

    tbcass:

    The fact is that DXO sensor scores are almost useless. People who pay attention to gear, as in try it, understand this.

    Those who can only read scores pretend the DXO rating is something...

    Haven't really used MSWord since Word2000--which I managed to "run" on my WinXP laptop for years.

    When I know the document is to be possibly read/edited in Word I save it in the...

    " Arguing with HowaboutRAW is like arguing with a child."

    You can use that excuse here, because your claims about "armchair photographer" directed at me be elsewhere.

    Auni,

    Thank you, just wanted to be clear you weren't talking about jpgs.

    Auni:

    With the M10, or SL:

    Are you shooting raw? Or jpg?

    And is the colour you refer to a jpg thing or the colour you can get out of raws you shoot?

    HenryDJP:

    And how have I "defended" Leica in every respect?

    I don't know which country your from but there's a whole bad history to spelling America (as in USA) with a K in place of the...

    Henry:

    Leica is spelt correctly all over this web page, it's very odd that you "chose" to spell it that way, it's not like say dropping an S from Zeiss, or reversing the E and the I in Zeiss...

    You may want to reread your posts before pretending that you didn't personally attack me.

    You don't have any valid attack on my logic or reasoning, you have a valid point that I...

    Technically, it's raws I won't share online. There's a difference.

    I haven't been in Seattle in 25 years and then it was only for a few days. And yes, back then Starbucks was a commodified place to sit with sort of okay coffee. But there was always better, and...

    These SL lenses sure are nice optically speaking.

    Now true, in the last 15 years lenses in general have significantly improved, Leica, Zeiss, Schneider, Olympus are still ahead of the game though.

  • Commented on article Leica SL Review

    Yes, Henry,

    I typed that.

    The quoting you:

    "I never said Pro photographers don't use Leica, I asked you why the MAJORITY don't use them, especially in the fields I listed. "

    And I provided an...
