  • Matt, Here's one place that seems well-regarded for mail-order rentals: https://www.lensrentals.com/rent/leica/cameras/leica-q-typ-116?gclid=CKvW0JPlxtACFQmRfgodHnMCbA Eric
  • Would I be out of place to recommend a rental?  It is a big purchase, and some hands-on time would be good. Eric
  • With the eyesight of a mole, I would prioritize contrast, magnification, and expected reliability in your selection. For maximum contrast, an M with a coated viewfinder window and the new MP-style ...
  • Kodak Brownie 620 Flash model. Still have it.

  • I purchased the M9 when it first came out.  Later, under the a-la-carte program, I had it upgraded to M9-P spec, silver chrome, sapphire screen, vulcanite.  It's a long-term keeper as the last of ...
  • I still own my original M8, and it is used to capture photons every once in awhile.  Most recently, I have been using it for B&W IR experimentation, but it is still well-suited to general ...
  • Created discussion thread Which single M lens for a wedding?
    In the vein of "just one lens" threads, what are folks' opinions on just one lens for a wedding where you are not the assigned photographer, but rather just someone to "take snapshots"? When I have ...
  • Thank for posting your inquiry here.  I would like to offer my experiences as well. For me, photography is a creative outlet and hobby.  I enjoy capturing pictures of whatever catches my eye.  I ...
  • I concur that the EVF is very useful with the f/0.95 depth of field.  Might I offer up an alternative in any of the live-view M240 series cameras?  M240, M-P240, M246 all have this feature.  You ...
  • A possible explanation is a memory card that is marginally out of spec to the camera, or vice versa.  I would try another card, although a finicky camera can be a pain too.  Perhaps a swap, ...
  • 35/1.4 is a much better environmental portrait focal length and stop. 28/2.8 would be an excellent landscape lens, also quite affordable. If you're not queasy about buying used, or have a good ...
  • I see you list the M240 in your prior gear list.  Why did you sell it?  I really don't want to know your personal business, but if you sold it because it didn't provide a function or experience ...
  • Perhaps the most powerful statement I've read regarding photography this year. Eric
  • If you're really tired of the RX1.1, I would swap for the M3 if it is a really well sorted out copy.  You're right on the edge of being on the losing side for the trade unless the M3 comes with a ...
  • Replied in Very nicely done
    Thank you for posting the link.  I especially enjoyed the numerous photos attached to the article.  I see I have some catching up to do with Seal before I get the VIP treatment, with his 35+ Leica ...
  • I also owned an X1 and had the battery retaining clip break loose.  One relatively quick trip to NJ, and the camera was returned repaired for free, although they did swap my lens cap for one with ...
  • Thank you for the link to the prior discussions.  A little intellectual back-and-forth helps to define a better concept. I was thinking the Leicavit trigger vs a crank on the side of a Rolleiflex, ...
  • So, I had an idea.  Remember the old Leicavit film winding devices?  These replaced the bottom plate of your M and had a collapsible lever that was used to advance the film.  They are a neat ...
  • i recently purchase the 90/2.4 from Leica by Boris and was well-pleased.  Remember to budget for import duties, just in case. Eric
