  • Thanks!
  • I had tried the M246 and noticed some issues with highlights. It was losing a lot of details in the highlights and made me feel that either the center-weighed metering was not measuring like other ...
  • But have you heard of any issues with the M10? Like you I have been shooting Leica since 1995. I did not feel that the M8 and M9 were anywhere near what I wanted and I painfully waited until the ...
  • APO Summicron 50mm at F/2. Also tried it at 1/30 as per my original post. No issues either with motion blur and shaking, nor with focusing.
  • Yep. Lobbamobba go try one and then see if you cannot focus. I had no issues.
  • Hahaha! I should have never tested it. I put myself on the waiting list right after... ;-)
  • I tried it today against my M10P and it is amazing. Three things: 1. Clarity: Maybe it's the extra resolution, the higher dynamic range or the lack of Bayer filter but the pictures have incredible ...
  • But that's the point. You have very specific needs that most people and myself for sure don't feel are necessary. I never had issues with the shutter speed dial for eg. I actually don't need any ...
  • Some good ideas but really only applicable to specific needs. IMHO, I think that you're using the wrong camera for your line of work. This is not the best event/flash camera where speed and ...
  • Going back to the OP's question. I have tried and used both but don't own either. I thought the qualitative difference was minimal but the Q2 has better resolution and the AF seemed faster to me.
  • Please spare us this argument that is as productive as people stating that we are all entitled to an opinion. These are tools - just like a farmer might want a specific tractor or a painter ...
  • Yes. I don't know of anything at 50mm on the market. The Q is 28 and the Sony R1XR is 35mm. The closest would probably be a Fuji Xpro which is a good camera. The Q2 has faster AF and better ...
  • The OP is clearly asking for a fixed lens autofocus camera.
  • Jono - Quick question for you as it relates to your excellent article. You speak about image stabilization not being an issue which I assume would have been the case. However, did you notice having ...
  • Replied in Sigh...
    I have a M10 and aa GFX 50. Double the resolution is not a waste of technology. You should rent both and see for yourself.
  • I know. I was just sharing my personal plan but it is great to finally have the M cameras at perfect resolutions. Anything above that would require IBIS which would defeat the purpose. I can ...
  • I switched from Summicron to APO Summicron before an assignment. It was a hefty hefty price range tag but zero regrets. I brought a SD card to the Leica store and shot a few things with both ...
  • I'm going to keep my M10-P and add the M10 Monochrom. 40mp is PERFECT!!! That's exactly what I was waiting for! I bought the Fuji GFX for That reason but did not like the camera. Great resolution ...
  • Thanks. I have a GFX 50 and a Leica M10-P. Going to do a comparison when the Leica store has one to test. I'm going to get the M10M anyhow and currently selling the GFX which I really did not take ...
  • You tee up a comparison with the SL2 but it sounds like you don't actually compare IQ with the SL unless I'm mistaken. Did you actually perform the comparison? Just curious. Thanks for the ...
