  • I suggest clicking on the website shown in the article. If nothing else put me off, then the magnets did it for me. A $5000 Summicron lens or even a $500 Tamron secured by magnets? Not my lens!...

  • Why not? It's only 220 pounds. Can't everyone walk around with that weight hanging off their hip? What whimps!! Seriously, the more I think about this contraption the more I think someone had too...

  • Nice idea. but 100kg? Pants down around the ankles? Not so nice. I don't see that this has any advantages over the Lowepro belt and lens sack approach or the similar design by Think Tank and have...

  • Predictably, they are phasing out the 16 mgpxl sensor on the T in favor of the 24 mgpxl sensor on the F.
    Since the lower priced X70 was recently introduced, I expect it will continue with the older...

    You can see outside the frame line on most OVF's. The problem with the 21mm is that the Lens's 28mm FOV will be well inside the 21mm frame line and would be pretty useless on the X70. There are ...

    I suggest you take another look at my previous post dated 3 days ago. If all you need is a viewfinder to hold the camera to your eye, a clip on viewfinder that has a 28mm FOV is the simplest, most ...
  • good point I neglected to mention. Thank you. Jim
  • The X Vario may or may not have the same sensor. Leica is not very forthcoming on this issue. I owned an X2 before my T. It does have the same sensor as the Vario. Both T and X2 use prime lenses ...
  • LFI (Leica Fotografi International) published by or through Leica AG. A rather overpriced but excellent quality magazine that contains mostly photographic essays and a little tech talk about ...
  • Check the internet for good used bargains. I picked up a used Sigma VF-11 that was made to go with the Sigma Merrill with a 28mm lens. I paid about $70 for it and it is small with good eye relief ...
  • Zephir, I assume you posted this because you are inviting comments. I suggest you dial back the highlights. They are really blown out. As a former XPro-1 shooter, I know you have plenty of room to ...
  • Very natural color balance. There is an excellent article in the current issue of LFI comparing the color balance of current Leica's including the M10 against the very neutral and well balance ...
  • The current issue of LFI magazine published by Leica has an article that compared the color reproduction of several current CMOS Leica cameras and included the older M9 CCD as a basis of ...
  • This thread has gone beyond all reason by virtue of people who do not own a LeicaT and find it necessary to judge its features based on little knowledge and even less experience. To all those who, ...
  • Oh, don't get me wrong. My go-to tripod head is a robust Kirk BH-2 ballhead mounted on a Induro Carbon Fiber tripod. My comment was directed at the ever-smaller video cameras and the booming market...

  • As video cameras become evermore compact, the accessories continue to grow in size, complexity, price and weight. Next we will see and fold-up dolly assembly and roll around cabinet to contain it....

  • Spoken like someone who never owned one but possibly picked one up in a store to look at it. Malabito, yours is the most insanely inaccurate description of the T imaginable. The iPhone type screen ...
  • A really cute shot. I don't know if that hand with the bag is part of the little girl's reaction, but it works and it tells a story. Is she offering to sell or has she completed the sale? Either ...
  • Nice shots. I remember Rothenburg and it is a charming and authentically medieval town to visit. But if you do walk around the wall, it is best to ignore the equally ancient and weather worn '' ...
