On photo Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin in the At the prison challenge (8 comments in total)

Having visited quite a few medieval dungeons and a few modern prisons I feel these are No No places to photograph.. Your image is a good capture.. Whilst there is a need for these types of establishments, I feel that human dignity should be respected.. L

On photo XVario - 24 in LeicaEye's photo gallery (2 comments in total)

Sir, I thank you for your helpful advice and comments,
I purely enjoy taking the pictures, using a Leica does allow
when one gets it right to get the best quality image (in my opinion).
Now I have my XV I will endeavor to utilize the wide end to better effect.
The XV certainly has a learning curve, the IQ is superb.
AgainThanks, Regards, L..

Just Ed: A definite fashion statement. Socialites who want to project an image of wealth, style and engineering savy should definitely look into acquiring a model "T" to hang off their shoulder (red badge facing out).*

I care, believe me I care, in my very younger days I used to stand outside the Bentley factory in Cricklewood, London..
Absolutely awe inspired.. Then I worked for the original Lotus, another awe inspiring time in my life.. Owned a RR in the late 70's and have always appreciated the finer things.
Being a photographic nut, I have always been a fanboy of the Red Dot.. 111c/M4/M6/R6.2 great cameras, now sadly unused..

WhiteSwan: Nothing about this camera will make anyone a better photographer, though in the eyes of the Leica customer base, it will probably make some people think they are a better photographer.

That's it in a nutshell...

On article Updated: Creating the Leica T (195 comments in total)

Bottom line is:- the electronics are already out of date,
there are just 2 lenses (at this time) and overall it is a wildly
expensive peice of kit. I'm a long time Leica/Nikon
user (X1//V-Lux40//D90)..Will the T improve my
photography? Will it improve Yours? And that folks is the
real question!!...As for pulling new Leica owners/users into the fold the T is as I previously said a wildly expensive route.
May your G'd and camera go with you..
