  • No, no! Definitely check yourself in! Then you will have time to consider how this velocity differential matters as the light travels though a lens that is an inch long. Please leave room for me.
  • My M5 sporting the 18-150mm was swept off of a table onto a brick floor. No issues. The plastic hood thread was dented on the lens. Camera fell on its hot shoe with the plastic insert in situ. Pret ...
  • Not me mate, your headline makes it look like M5 lenses suck. Seriously boys and girls, it is an ILC, meaning that lenses changes are an advantage, so they should be natural and expected. Practice ...
  • Then say, " 18-150 is nice - but not Wide enough ".
  • Really. That was a misleading subject title. Throw the 11-22 into the bag and go hunting. And yes, I have used pano feature with the 28mm macro to stitch things like aircraft images on an aircraft ...
  • Replied in Leica Diopter
    No, no! You can't do that, you have to visit an ophthalmic surgeon!  ;) Glad that you have a Leica Store close by- best way to address the problem. I checked at the Leica Store in Boston, and they ...
  • Replied in Leica Diopter
    If you think an appointment with an optometrist is required to ascertain the correct diopter, then yes,  you wasted 9 years of your life in college. ;)
  • Replied in Leica Diopter
    Assuming that you can't get to a Leica store to try out different diopters they have in stock, could you simply take your camera to a drug store and try it with various reading glasses. Note the ...
  • Had my M5 with 18-150 swept off of a table in a courtyard . Fell about three feet onto a brick floor. Only damage was to lens hood thread in one place (hood was not installed) . The plastic lens ...
  • Camera sales are in the toilet. No company can afford to make mistakes right now- At least Canon has alternate sources of revenue to mitigate the demise of camera revenue. Wouldn't get my hopes up.
  • Replied in In Paris
    Nice shots!. Are you familiar with French privacy laws? Have a look sometime, it is quite easy to get jammed up over there. Don't ask me how I know! ;)
  • Leica M10 removed video completely. If Leica thinks video is a drag, then what else do you need to know?  ;)
  • Replied in M6 or M5
    The M6's screen flips upward to facilitate selfie mode . The M5's screen only reversed downward, creating months of whining from Vloggers. The M6 solves the problem, so there should be blissful ...
  • Created discussion thread SL2 Rumor - Release this year
    We've seen this before, but since the SL1 is compared to the M5 often, thought I'd throw it into the mix as it comes up as an alternate option often. ...
  • Part of the appeal, and the glass is amazing. There is a new, corporate Leica store in Boston in the hotel I frequent for business. So tempting. They don't have the M3 in yet. The SL camera was in ...
  • Thanks for the heads up.
  • Created discussion thread Anyone Here thought about going Leica?
    Or are you already a Leica shooter? Spent an hour in a stateside Leica company store and am quite interested in the M10. It doesn't have video by the way, as in none whatsoever. 4K piners take ...
  • Pretty non committal to anything specific. 4K eventually, mirrorless most popular in Southeast Asia, weakest in North America. M "L" lenses sounded a long way off.
