  • Looks very familiar. I remember making a few stops along the highway from Vancouver to Whistler in 2004 to see the various sites and remember one being a decent hike to a multi-level waterfall ...
  • I would guess the Q now works like using an M when shooting raw only. The preview will always use the parameters as set in the camera. Preview is embedded in the raw file, but, if Q raw ...
  • Cute....Rio hardly qualifies as "the real world", but for that PART of the world, I'll take my couch every day.

    If Rio/Central America of today was the real world experience....I think most would...

  • If they gave me 5 of those white lenses and sent me for free, I still wouldn't want to go to Rio to take pictures of anything.

  • I like it too, except for the fool photographers who post images of Japanese models in every photo group possible, legitimate or not for the subject matter. It seems to be quite the wild west with...

  • Lordy, I would say so. I'd be proud to have captured just a couple from that folder. Those are outstanding.
  • Only if I could pull the lens out of the Q and put it on the next camera would I consider doing this. A 28mm Summicron will remain usable well beyond the Q's life span as a camera and, more ...
  • Joe, you were the one who originally said the window was there to illuminate the finder frames, so you weren't making anything clearer about the M262 at all.
  • Actually, no! Goodness..... You did really use this camera, right? The M262 has no finder frame illumination window. The focal length bright lines are lit electronically. Turn the power off and the ...
  • It is, a lot of fun to use. It's everything the MD 262 is, but with a back LCD. A still's only digital M7 and I'll take that every day of the week. There's a lot I can do without in a digital ...
  • Correct, Joe was not. I was just being more specific about what "metering window" the original poster was referring to.
  • I see you mention no ISO 100 in the "areas of concern" in your review. It may be a pull just like the higher ISO values that are a push, but there is an ISO 100 option, and it works very well. ...
  • No, the M262 uses electronic finder frames just like the M240. The little round opening he's talking about is a brightness sensor. The M9/ME were the last to use the traditional finder ...
  • 28mm f2.8 ASPH. It's tiny. The one just replaced would be excellent, or the newest if you've got the funds to spend.
  • I think it's more an indication of what today's Photoshop/edit abilities for any and everyone have evolved to.

  • Definitely one of more ignitable groups, even staying on subject. The only "Leica" equipment you're even halfway safe discussing over there is the stuff made by Panasonic.
  • The "travel" winner looks like the typical photoshop-baked creations I see a lot. Between sun rays that look a bit "too" perfect and images being HDR'd to death, I'm not sure which look worse, but...

  • Replied in 50mm F2 R vs M
    It's actually the 50mm Summilux ASPH 50 (an f1.4 lens) he said he's been using for years. That makes much more sense.
  • Replied in 50mm F2 R vs M
    It has been out for 4 years, so I guess technically "years" could be accurate, but is a bit grandiose in my opinion in this case. It's called the 50mm APO Summicron-M ASPH, just like the current 75 ...
  • Replied in 50mm F2 R vs M
    Sure! $7,800 and it's yours.. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/860529-REG/Leica_11141_APO_Summicron_M_50mm_f_2_0_ASPH.html
