  • I’m no fan of buying one of these high-priced bodies from anyone other than a dealer who sells with a warranty/return privilege and will make sure what they sell is in first-rate order. Other than ...
  • As the email noted “THE SUN IS SETTING....” May be the first written comment they’ve made that’s been honest/to the point about their position.
  • I think if you know the sport and how to photograph it, the 55-135 can do a decent job. It’s not an optimal system to be shooting any fast-moving sport, but it can do a decent job. Image quality ...
  • ...and a macro lens to boot. Side by side with the 35mm f1.4, those two are very close to twins, they even share the exact same lens hood. One in each hand the 35/1.4 is slightly heavier.
  • Did you send Don Goldberg an email asking? Your answer may be correct but Don is one who may still work on them. They're definitely nothing cheap enough most would just go buy another to replace. ...
  • I would imagine a CL2 is at least a year if not two off to keep it in the 5 year rotation as the CL came out in 2017. The CL is really, really nice. I cannot see where it suffers from the same kind ...
  • Maybe, maybe not, but if you can find one of those generic vented hoods the folks in China sell for next to nothing, they should work as well at least as the crazy-priced vented hoods Thorsten ...
  • I don't doubt 30 inches, at all. I've been shooting my CL alongside an M262. I have a 30x45 metal print hanging in my girlfriend's home shot with the M262 and 35mm f2 ASPH, a really nice 30x40 ...
  • I've owned the 21mm f1.8 Ultron for quite a while. An excellent performer but a comparatively massive, heavy lens to carry. Tht said, if it were me choosing today I'd simply go with the newer, f1.4 ...
  • With the CL and 55-135mm APO Vario-Elmar in this morning's sky. Mars is just above the moon, with Saturn at the very top of the frame.
  • At the current available used prices I've been considering the same as a second full-frame body along with my M262 for the M lenses. At 10MP in aps-c mode with my TL lenses the original SL is less ...
  • If price is an important part of the puzzle, the M lens system with any body is the wrong puzzle to be working with....
  • Never has been a speed demon of a program and, if I had to compare it to almost any 5 other programs, I'd rank Workspace 7th, LOL. Best selling point? It's free.
  • That titanium M60 was limited edition, included a similarly styled 35mm f1.4 FLE and was supremely expensive. https://www.35mmc.com/02/07/2015/leica-m-edition-60/ Later they introduced the MD262.
  • This lens is well beyond the plastic-fantastic and often available for $99 Olympus 40-150mm f4-5.6. I've used both the original and model II of that lens with various Pens with accessory EVF's and ...
  • I recently saw, ditto on the Leica 18mm f3.8 Super Elmar. Fortunately, I picked one of those up a while back second-hand. Glad I did. It's a fantastic super-wide view.
  • Assuming they even do update the TL2 to a TL3, and CL2, in-camera stabilization.
  • After 2 glasses of red wine and 2-3 glasses of pecan praline whiskey there are many things that seem a bit hazy....LOL. But your images are all real. Just interpretations of what the eye sees.
  • The SF60 and SF40 are not that far apart in size, and the radio wireless commander, if that's accessory a user might want at some point, only works with the SF60. I picked up the SF60+Commander duo ...
