  • "All to honor......." ?! Really?  "Planned burglary" indeed, taking advantage of police being diverted toward thousands who were not out to loot, or be destructive, but rather to exercise their ...
  • Excellent, I guess the cameras a keeper :) David
  • Congrats on your purchase. I'm sure you'll enjoy the camera. And please let us know what you learn about flickr explore!
  • I am not understanding the question. The AF should work without much noise. The manual focus works really well and has focus magnification. It is possible your camera has an issue that should be ...
  • I think that this is where opinions differ on this point, and I would not say that you are incorrect here. The lens I always have thought typified the glow, other than the 50 Summar (g*d help us) ...
  • Thank you! I had not seen this, and you to Titus, stay safe. :) David
  • By brochure, do you mean the user manual?  I never saw an advertising brochure for the X-113.  There was a brochure for Leica X cameras when X Vario came out and it included the X2 or XE as I ...
  • I traded my pre-APO Summicron for Summilux Asph. I do have the 50 f1.5 Sonnar which is smaller if I want smaller, not to mention that has a different look. I say get the Summilux if in a position ...
  • I enjoy seeing your images here! I can add by sharing that a few months ago, my pop-up finder suddenly quit and so I sent my RX1R II to Advanced Camera Repair. When the work was done, I asked the ...
  • I think that Sjak breaks it down well. I would argue only that the MM CCD offers a significant experience and look/files that my M10 does not. I made a decision when I was traveling in Europe and ...
  • Replied in Lady In Red
    Playing with fire! You did it well :) David
  • Replied in Lady In Red
    Lovely Rodrigue, and also the space you make with the skin tones blending into the "walls" or the space surrounding your subject. David
  • Nice depth to these Alex...and great you're getting on the bicycle! :) David
  • I don't have experience with that earlier  Summicron but recall one review from the late Tom Abrahamsson in LHSA Viewfinder extolling it as pretty good! :) It is really quite a behemoth (MHO). The ...
  • Elie, It is so personal, again for me the form-factor. I think also the Elmarit-M feels bigger and heavier even though they are close to same weight in grams. I would give the 90 Elmarit-M a try ...
  • Thank you Elie, I have had all of the f2.8 lenses including the Elmarit-M which is the "best" of them, but didn't warm up to it. It is similar form factor except in size, to the 50 Summicron v5 ...
  • Here is 90mm "fat" Tele Elmarit on M10.  These can be found easily for under $1000. I also have the 75 f1.8 from Voigtlander. I like the lens a lot but find that the 50/75 lines take getting used ...
  • The M262, M-D, both are great. The sensor is not as good in very low light as the M10 but an improvement over the M9 and does ok in what I'd call practical application-low light i.e. a night on ...
  • Good morning Doug, Let me begin where you left off in clarifying my use of "clueless" with Mr. Kratzke's review of the M10. The sports car analogy is good and works to a point. To come in a ...
  • There's certainly nothing wrong with the Q or Q2 Alex.  I sorta wish I liked it better than the Sony but it's personal, and in my case how I got in to the Sony in the first place. Frankly and why I ...
