  • cheers, a welcome addition but once again, shame it can't be used in Av mode as with most cams. Still, this SL is such a capable piece of kit, technically speaking, I expect there's a lot they can ...
  • I hear you there. I have been using the rear dial for exp comp on several panasonic bodies, and EP5 EM5, EM1 and Pen F. I realise that we're all different in this regard but I generally shoot wide ...
  • Thank you Godfrey for the comprehensive answer. I do hope Leica allow for further customisation on the next f/w update. Many people who have used mirrorless cameras for a long time know that the ...
  • I've installed the 2.0 FW and I can get direct access to exp comp via the top dial (without having to hit some button first) but I cannot adjust exp comp using the rear dial, as mentioned in the ...
  • thanks! I do all my processing from RAW in Nik's Silver FX (now free everyone!.:)
  • Hi Thanks! The more I use this lens the more I understand its character and how it compares to others I have. It does produce quite flat images, the bokeh is not bad but I don't think the oof ...
  • Replied in a few SL pics
    Hi Mark, thanks, when you have 4 M lenses sitting in a cupboard (mostly) it seems almost criminal not to have a proper vehicle to use them on. When the SL first came out I didn't even bother to ...
  • Replied in a few SL pics
    I have to agree with you there Paul, I've used it on 2 A7 bodies and its not bad but there's definitely something lacking which Leica bodies can tap into
  • thanks Rick, this lens in particular, is a lovely fit on the EM1, it feels perfect on that body
  • thanks, I'm just using my eye for focussing, it seems to be all that's needed most of the time, I sometimes use magnify if I have the time and the subject is still enough
  • Created discussion thread a few with the EM1 + Leica M 35mm ASPH
  • not a bad lens!
  • Created discussion thread a few SL pics
    using 50mm Lux ASPH and 35mm Lux ASPH looking forward to the new 50mm Lux AF version
  • congrats! after using a few A7 bodies with Leica Lenses over the past year or two, the SL really makes those M lenses shine like they used to on my M9.
  • Replied in SL quite Mode
    no, but its a very discreet sounding shutter
  • I can tell you from my experience that this is definitely one of the latter. I get decent results so far to ISO 12500 but if I try to push a couple of stops out of anything over ISO 5000 I can get ...
  • Replied in ...its coming...
    I have it on the highest authority from Leica that the required button push to enable exposure compensation will be removed from the workflow in a forthcoming firmware update in the spring. Until ...
  • I've done the same, but its terribly cumbersome compared with most other mirrorless cameras. I see that Ozzie chap Kristian Dowling (who did a big review) is also calling for this to be ...
  • Created discussion thread Exposure compensation on SL
    does anyone know of anyway of getting that wheel on the back to adjust the exp comp WITHOUT having to hit some shortcut button first? The previous 6 mirrorless cameras I have owned all have rear ...
