  • I read in a book (I've to found out with one) that a sensor inside the Leica M 240 can read with some approximation the aperture totally without electrical connections.  You might be right about ...
  • And it works, not very accurate but it works:
  • There is electronic connection but is either inductive or capacitive and is not very accurate. The other brand have "electric connection" This at least until the M240. Al my photos show the ...
  • A very special lens with suboptimal optical characteristics when compared to a Summicron for example but indispensable in certain situations.
  • never heard so much bullcrap from Apple before. They just lost my purchasing, my current Macbook Pro will serve a few more years

  • The Panasonic 100-400 does but I've both system (three 4:3 actually) and if I've to use a Tele I also need pixels so with my 600mm I use the Nikon D800E, the 4:3 solutions are toys compared to it.

  • The voigtlander 15mm gen III, it is amazing. Look at this unbias review compared to Leica: https://vieribottazzini.com/2016/07/leica-16-18-21mm-tri-elmar-vs-voigtlander-15mm-super-wide-heliar-iii-r ...
  • Replied in AF a big deal
    I do a lot of street photography almost exclusively with the M, however I've to admit that what I gain from being discreet is often lost from the time it takes to focus. My Nikon D800E is much ...
  • Faxao, you are right but ti's so hard to cover all cases. To some degree it is easier for a pro. I'm not a pro but I shoot a lot, I do street photography, landscape, travel, and I love surfers and ...
  • I guess an overwhelming majority is suggesting to stick to a 28mm lens only. You convinced me, I liked the idea of the 2nd body always ready but I do have other bodies that can do that. I also ...
  • Created discussion thread Buying a Q instead of a lens?
    With the price point of the Q and the lens it has, one could make the case that instead of buying a 28mm Leica lens for the M , you are better off buying a Q, use it as 28mm and as backup camera. ...
  • I don't have a Leica Q but often camera designers underspose a bit digital cameras to preserve highlights. My M240 is pretty spot on when the metering system get it right but is no near as ...
  • I like #4 very much, with the kid smiling. I'm surprise about the noise, was it dark? I would print it anyway though, probably in BW. I don't think Eye Surgery made things worse. The photos are in ...
  • Coming here and ask this question is like asking in a restaurant if their wine is good. I guess nobody here compared a 42MP Sony with a Leica Monochrome 24MP. Under the mathematical point of view ...
  • Replied in Voigtlander
    If you are on a budget I would suggest a Voigtlander lens instead of a Leica. I do have the Summicron 35mm and I love it but Voigtlander equivalent are about 1/5  (either new or used) of the price ...
  • I do own 4:3 and I use them with satisfaction but I own Leica M and Nikon FF and I love them too. Different cameras for different purposes. What I find astonishing is the hate for FF not just ...
  • I rarely used my Kodak since I bought the Nikon D700, I then bought a D800E and a Leica M among other formats like several 4:3 cameras. I never got those Kodak colors again. Only the Leica M get ...
  • And I have Nikon FF and APS-C, Nikon 1 and MFT systems The rangefinder give me a focus centered perfectly where I want, the camera produce fenomenal raws, the lenses are sharp even full open.
  • Replied in Never
    Although I like Leica and I enjoy my M240 I've a huge array of lenses on Nikon that are not even available on Leica ad any price. How can I put a 600mm with amazing AF on a Leica SL and go to ...
