  • Well, I'm flattered - and yes, I probably meant native 'prime' lenses I think so, yes - for me, if I were only to shoot M lenses I'd still stick to an M camera, because I love shooting with a ...

    Hi There Louis Thanks for the kind words - and I completely agree with you about the T and it's importance in the Leica lineup all the best to you and yours as well
  • Hi There Eric Thank you for your comments - as for shortcomings, perhaps, but it was supposed to be a user experience, and I've really included all the downsides which affect me (poorer tracking ...
  • Created discussion thread A Year with the Leica SL
    Hi There If you're interested, here is my long term write up on the SL http://www.slack.co.uk/leica-sl-year.html All the very best wishes to old friends here.
  • Replied in Decentering?
    Well, I recommend you don't test yours too hard . . . if you're getting good results then there's no need! Hmmm, well, perhaps I'm wrong about distance - it would only relate to rangefinder WA ...
  • HI There Paul That is a cracking lens . . . but it would be hard to compare .  I guess you would have to compare it with the Summilux and Elmar 24 and the 25 Zeiss . I've so many times nearly ...
  • Hi Godfrey Thank you! Nice to hear from you. Funny how the world divides - I've always preferred 28 to 35 - Your summilux from 1972 sounds lovely - I've played with one and loved it (so teeny too). ...

    But remember, this is less than a quarter of the frame at 100%, and it's the bottom left corner - so you would expect to see more resolution heading from left to right . . . looking at the whole ...

    Hi There Simon I assume you're talking about the shed shots with the M240? I'm pretty sure that the lens is okay - for the distance shots I did some focus bracketing, I wasn't quite so careful with ...
  • It's a pleasure Hmm - well, most of the bare bones information is there . .  but quite a lot of it is rather subjective - Sean Reid will have a lot of that information on his website - tempting to ...
  • Hi there Jeff My impression is that it's better than the zoom, but it's pretty marginal and I haven't done a proper comparison It's pretty obvious that there is a (much) flatter plain, I haven't ...
  • Hi There here is their statement about it: http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-us/we-develop-policy/our-policy-on-supporting-science/the-use-of-animals-in-cancer-research All the best

    :) Not at all . . . sadly I don't even know if it exists . . but here's hoping!

    Hi Louis All the best to you and yours as well .  . . All good here (if rather chaotic). I'm sorry to say I don't have the next T in my hands (whatever it might be called . . TL? ) but I have great ...
  • Hi Paul As for the Zeiss 25 - I quite agree, it's a wonderful lens, sharp from corner to corner from f2.8. I like the look of the new summicron more than the old ( but I like the modern Leica ...
  • Well, Landscape shooters and anyone who likes to put their motif in the corners
  • Hi there Paul I still have my M9, and love it, but I didn't include it in the tests. However - I'd say that the differences are just the same as on the M240 .  . . . . So that the new lens has less ...
  • Created discussion thread The New Leica 28 summicron vs the Old
    Hi There I hope all my friends here are well . . . apologies for absence . . . I've just written a comparison between the old and new 28 Summicrons which might be of interested (on the Leica M240, ...
  • Hi There It looks like just the place to be . . . . Have a great time All the very best wishes for 2016
  • Thank You! I'm very flattered All the best
