  • Tough break for Leica. Some fool actually tried to use their camera, rather than simply displaying it for it's prestige value.

    To their credit, they quickly warned all the other TL2 owners to not...

  • Replied in The Problem
    Earlier in the thread I said I wouldn't recommend it, despite the NX1 being a really great camera. And one reason for that was because "there are no bargains available" when you buy a great camera ...
  • I never considered you as a Democrat party hack, like so many other people on this forum are. You are simply an honest liberal whom I disagree with on many issues. And there is nothing wrong with ...
  • I realize that the foreigners (and many American imbeciles) on this forum like to believe that Republicans are hateful nazis and Democrats are wonderful caring people. But the real truth is that ...
  • I think the real reason this upsets people is because the lawyers become your partner rather than your employee. Suddenly, they own one third of your settlement, so they want the largest settlement...

  • Zigmont..... if you have a good case, and I believe this photographer does have a good case based on the contract they had, then it isn't "Jane Doe vs. Mega Corporation."

    It now becomes "Jane Doe...

  • You started this thread two months ago, you got plenty of good advice, and you are still agonizing over which lens to buy. My father, who died over 37 years ago, once told me.... "if you try hard ...
  • We really wouldn't have thirteen different companies still competing in this shrinking space if all they did was "make cameras." We are very fortunate that ten of those thirteen derive a ...
  • In good light, the 14-42mm EZ will work just fine as a general purpose walk around lens. For low light you might want to use a fast prime. You might be overthinking this. There is always ...
  • I think Ulric took you at your word when you wrote "14-150mm" in which case the 14-42mm EZ would be indeed unnecessary. But if we really are talking about the 40-150mm lens, then you still need ...
  • You have just hit on the biggest problem camera makers are faced with today. Every camera made in the last five years is good enough for the needs of 99% of amateur photographers. The technology ...
  • Commented on article Leica TL2 first impressions

    Good advice indeed.

    Just remember it was you who was doing the speculating and extrapolating from your experience with the Leica Q.

  • You have created a really great list of things that would make a camera more desirable for me or you. No doubt about it, everything on your list would motivate me to buy. But I have two questions ...
  • Commented on article Leica TL2 first impressions

    Robgo2..... it seem you are a bit confused.

    These comments posted above are about the Leica TL2, not the Leica Q. The comparison I made was between the TL2 and the Sony A6500, which are both APSC...

  • You don't need to hire a lawyer, or pay for someone to write a letter for you. Just file a claim in your local small claims court (assuming, you are someplace in the USA.) Odds are FedEx has some ...
  • Camera makers have to accept the new reality. They are dealing with a niche product now, and have to fully exploit their remaining customers. This means.... more fantastic cameras and lenses, and ...
  • Mark, I agree that it would be great to be able to edit your own camera's menu system. At least in terms of hiding those functions you don't normally use in order to simplify the search for the ...
  • Camera makers are acutely aware of what they need to do. And most have been doing these things for quite a few years now. The problem is these things really don't work, and they keep losing market ...
  • Those points of light shouldn't be oval shaped. It seems like there was some camera shake involved. Night photography really benefits from using a tripod, even if it isn't always practical. There ...
  • You might be taking the label "Leica" way too literally.

    This is NOT a $4,000 lens. The Panasonic-Leica lenses should be compared to the similarly priced Olympus PRO lenses, and not to those...
