I'm here to kick ass and chew bubble gum -- and I'm all outta bubble gum.

  • I has a crystal ball.
  • Are you kidding me?  Have you seen pocket sizes these days!?  ;-) This would depend on the specs/features of the camera.  I'm sure Sony to keep it under $1000 if they really want to.  I'm not ...
  • Created discussion thread Why no Sony APS-C fixed lens camera?
    So I saw the announcement of the LX100M2 and started to think... wait, where are all of the APS-C fixed lens cameras? There's only a handful at the moment and it seems like a total money-maker for ...
  • Doh!  Sorry about that.  Had RX100 on my mind for some reason.
  • Kyle, just curious, but why did you pick up the M4 and not the M5 version? The Phase Detect AF is worth it. ;) PS.  I just picked up the RX100M5 last week and don't regret it one bit.  I was a bit ...
  • Well I had the same logic with the RX100M5... but they released a M6 anyway.  I suspect the RX10M5 will be out later this summer -- who knows -- but they had a release just about every year.  I'd ...
  • Jeff, you're comparing apples to oranges. They are entirely different cameras with different target users in mind. I would wait for the RX10M5 which will probably be announced any day now given ...
  • Ah nevermind I get it now.
  • Created discussion thread Leica CL + 50mm 'Lux ASPH
    Has anyone else used this combination? I have the Leica adapter and I'm not able to get the "auto" focus assist magnification to work. Is this a known issue? The camera detected the lens perfectly ...
  • Just a quick update:  I received the correct lens this time but the lens "coding" is not working -- it's just coming up as "uncoded" -- which is really annoying.  I prefer to keep it in Automatic ...
  • https://www.flickr.com/search/?group_id=88753347%40N00&view_all=1&text=MONOCHROM For the 50mm...
  • That's pretty good image quality from the kit lens.  :)
  • Yep, that's from a Sony.  :) As my friend (who is a fierce critic of everything) told me that Sony camera output is very "clinical."  It took me a while to figure out what he meant by that but ...
  • Well, no, it doesn't happen all that often.  I think Amazon is the case where it's more likely to happen given their business model. I would have ordered from B&H but they are out of stock. The ...
  • The CL only has contrast detect AF so the 6500 should have superior AF compared to the CL but since I don't own a CL I can't say for sure. It really comes down to the processing engines of Sony vs ...
  • Created discussion thread 7Artisans 50mm f/1.1 & Amazon
    Be careful if you are ordering from Amazon.  I received my lens today with the correct label on the packaging but the actual lens box was the 55mm f/1.4 model for the EOS M mount.  Grrr! I've ...
  • I agree I don't think the 18mm lens will be all that useful to me either. I started out as a 35mm guy but after graduating to the Leica M in the last couple of years, I've fallen in love with ...
  • Marc, I would have to agree with you there.  I've played with a couple of CL DNG files in Lightroom and they are fabulous which is kind of where my excitement comes from. Similar to M cameras ...
  • Thanks Mike for the feedback. Yeah I am going to rent one in the next few weeks from LensRentals before fully diving into the series but I suspect I'll like it.  It's a new camera and I'm sure ...
  • Created discussion thread Leica CL Owners
    I admittedly kind of wrote off most of the non FF Leica cameras but I recently saw some Leica CL pictures and was very impressed.  I would love a Leica Q but it's a bit too pricey and only 28mm.  ...
