    I actually never use my GFX! It seats on a copy stand to act as DSLR scanner. I never liked the camera and I'm extremely happy with the M10 so I'm not the best candidate to make a case for the ...
  • 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 ...

    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 ...
