  • Mike, I was speaking specifically of the ZM mount lenses. However, if you have only the Nik mount lenses (ZF), then you can use either a NIK to M lens adapter or an LET/Nik adapter on you M or TL ...
  • My standard 50 mm and 35mm lenses are the f/2.0 Planar and the f/2/8 Biogon respectively. I have used both lenses successfully on both my M9P and Leica T without any problems. I prefer the Zeiss ...
  • I had hoped that they would have updated the focus system but apparently not. So when I get the TL2, I'll put up with the old C.D. system. Thanks for the info. Cheers, Jim
  • Just like my Leica T. I had hoped that Leica could overcome this issue with the TL2. But that won't stop me from buying one when they are again released for sale. I guess I'll manual focus the ...
  • Dr. Rohde, While the other images are very nice, this one seems a little soft. I know that my 23mm Summicron TL is quite sharp. Is it a problem with hunting for focus on interior shots or is it a ...
  • @shigzeo,
    Re.: spotting the problem earlier...
    The initial run of pre-production cameras worked fine as several reviewers tried them out. Some reviewers like Huff and Overgaard were very pleased...

  • Given that Nikon recalled the D600, D750 and their notorious battery recall a few years ago after denying for months that they had a problem, I'd say the Leica's immediately getting on the problem...

  • From the sample shots, it looks like a nice portrait lens. It has a velvety look which should be excellent for skin textures. It should be used on a plain backdrop since the bokeh is a little...

    @Trundling,
    I can't speak for the images reproduced by the DPReview staff for this article. Someone did that once and was kicked off the forum. I suggest, if you are dissatisfied with the images...

    MrALLCAPS:
    I found an interview on-line of Leica management sometime back and unfortunately I cannot find the link anymore. My comments are based on that; from the horses mouth, so to speak. I did...

    MrALLCAPS:
    THE TL2 IS A WETZLAR MANUFACTURED CAMERA, ALBIET MANY 'GUTS' ARE OUTSOURCED. IT IS NOT MANUFACTURED BY PANASONIC, ALTHOUGH THE SENSOR MAY BE MADE BY THE SAME SOURCE USED BY PANASONIC OR...

    From the CMOSIS website:
    Their area scan sensors ( AKA camera sensors among other uses) range from 250x250 pixels ( too small to be usable in a modern camera) to 10,000x 7096 pixels and from .0625...

    PROBERT500 and others:
    It is not a Sony sensor. That appears to be a common misconception. Even I thought so. Leica uses sensors made to their own specifications designed by CMOSIS, a Belgian...

    UPMTIOUS: Who is Steve Huff? Who is Richard Butler? Both are stupid questions. The TL2 is a Leica Wetzlar product. Panasonic sensor? No. Possibly Sony, but who knows except Leica. I have an A6000...

  • I had an 8mm Samyang on my Fuji X APSC and it was incredibly sharp and didn't seem to care where you set the distance because the depth of field was so wide. On the other hand there was not a...

  • Despite all the publicity, i have yet to see a review. Although there was a user review on the 50mm f1.1 that commented about flare and softness, but those comment were really too short to be...

  • Commented on article Leica TL2 first impressions

    I have the original Leica T and the images are razor sharp, so I really don't understand the soft image comment. Maybe it is a bad pre-production model? I enjoy my T so much I am looking forward to...

  • I'll give you the last word. Different strokes, etc.......
  • You mean they don't sing. Maybe they hum a little. Be that as it may, Fuji XPro-1 or 2 are really great cameras and I enjoyed mine very much. The clever finder/RF?/ parallax corrector is really ...
