  • 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 ...
  • I do and it's a great combination. I found to be sharp even compared to other lenses I've on the D800. It would be interesting to compare it with the 100-400 that should be even better but if ...
  • If you can find it in your budget, a used GH3 is the best thing you can buy.
  • I own the GX8 and I've to say the review is very fair. the AF is above my expectation (my reference camera in this field is my Nikon D800E with its supreme AF) the IBIS is below expectations. No ...
  • Replied in GX IBIS
    The GX8 IBIS is a far cry from the 3-4 stops the OP is claiming. I tested mine carefully and I get 1, may be 1.5 stops in a good day. Online reviews prove my finding. Also I don't have any ...
  • Replied in Deadly sin!
    Deadly Sin not to use it for a while so the camera God sent you a warning message !
  • 1) The Focus Peaking in the M is barely usable. Sometimes it shows, sometime it doesn't. I try the options but it's the same thing so I found it unreliable. I recently bought a Panasonic GX8 and ...
  • "With such a slow aperture you may find yourself outside shooting at 70mm on a cloudy or gloomy day and having to bump up to ISO 800 because you have to be at f/6.4, which is wide open at 70mm. OUCH!"
