LCT's recent activity

  • Replied in Problem
    Different shutter speeds apparently. Best, LCT
  • Replied in Unfounded rumors
    According to Stefan Daniel, "The recent rumours about a so-called CM are totally unfounded": https://www.fotosidan.se/cldoc/prylnytt/interview-with-leica-about-future-cameras.htm Best, LCT
  • If you mean the Summilux 50/1.4 asph (current version) it is sharper at f/1.4 (!) and f/2, especially at edges and corners. It has also less flare, less CA and less focus shift but the latter is ...
  • I have no experience with this lens but all ZM lenses have pretty well the same features so the only exif data you can get are those of the Leica lens you will choose for 6-bit coding eventually. ...
  • Yes i don't recall when the DL109 was announced exactly but the LX100 was just rumored at the beginning of September 2014. https://www.43rumors.com/ft5-panasonic-lx100-has-16mp-multiaspect-sensor-a ...
  • Any link about that? DPReview says « Announced Sep 15, 2014 » here: https://www.dpreview.com/products/panasonic/compacts/panasonic_dmclx100 Best, LCT
  • Both were announced in September 2014 if memory serves but i may be wrong. Best, LCT
  • I use Patona batteries on various cameras with non problem at all. Patona is a German company using cells made in China IMHO. There are so many brands like that that i don't compare them anymore ...
  • I would not have used several of them for 30+ years to complement my SLRs now mirrorless cameras otherwise i guess but i may be wrong. Rangefinders are a special experience and when i see photogs ...
  • Main question is to know if you need a rangefinder. If you don't, i see little point in spending little fortunes for any M camera. If you need a rangefinder, forget about 6500 iso on M240, let ...
  • As a Leica M, R and CL user, i much prefer the ergonomics of the LX100. What is painful with many Leica bodies, including the D-Lux 109, is the necessity to purchase accessories like hand grips or ...
  • Current Nikon lenses are not huge (my Nikkor 50/1.4 is shorter than my asph and pre-asph Summilux 50 for example) and should be usable through an adapter on the forthcoming mirrorless FF Nikon. htt ...
  • All those lenses work fine on the CL. I find the Leica 21/2.8 asph too bulky though and prefer the Leica 21/3.4 asph or CV 21/4 from this viewpoint. The Leica 28/2 is a bit smaller but i prefer ...
  • Replied in RF blockage
    Problem with big wides is VF blockage on rangefinders. Best, LCT
  • Interesting indeed. First time i hear of that. Normally the Summicron-C 40/2 brings up 50mm (or 50/75) framelines on M bodies but its flange is sometimes modified to bring up 35 (or 35/135) ...
  • Only of mostly (?) Leica AFAIK, more so than the film CL which was manufactured by Minolta. It is not a full frame body though. Best, LCT
  • Good idea. I did not check everything but you may wish to add CV 15/4.5 v3 & 25/4; Leica 21/2.8 pre-asph, 21/3.4 pre-asph, 75/2.4 & 90/2.4 if i'm not mistaken. Would be perfect to mention the code ...
  • As warm as a Leica store :D Best, LCT
  • Always been jpeg differences since Digilux 1 & LC5 15 years ago. See: http://www.dcfever.com/news/readnews.php?id=12009&page=3 http://cdn01.dcfever.com/articles/news/2014/11/141127_dluxscene_05o.jpg ...
  • Indeed, i would wait and see what happens at the next photokina or i would pick an LX100 which has (to me) better ergonomics, a more classical and sturdy case and can be had for less than 600$. ...
