  • I'm not so sure.

    Mirrorless is an increasingly crowded field and it's difficult to see how Pentax would be able to muscle in successfully. They might just do better to produce really well...

  • Replied in Yes seriously
    Not pocket cameras. The LC1 and its Digilux 2 cousin had a lovely Leica designed fast zoom which produced beautiful images at low ISO.  The L1 and Digilux 3 were Pana Leica's first proper dSLRs, ...
  • Lovely image and totally agree.  I've kept mine and still enjoy using it on occasion.  The build and handling is unparalleled and the colours are lovely.  That sensor produces a look (at low ISO) ...
  • And there I was thinking DPR didn't think Pentax cameras were capable to taking photographs of moving objects.......

  • Replied in E-1....
    Pulled out my E-1 the other day and charged up the battery to check all still ok.  Had a great deal of fun with it, was surprised that with modern software higher ISO (800) wasn't too terrible, ...
  • I'm struggling to find the reference now but I think the run was restricted to something like 750, which is why they sold out pretty quickly.
  • Also suspect they had some remaining parts for the M240 and made as many as they felt they could whilst retaining enough for spares and maintenance. It was always clear that it would be a limited ...
  • Replied in Lockdown London
    All M240 with Zeiss 35/2.8 Biogon C
  • I'm not sure any small sensor camera is going to do brilliantly when viewed at 100% and for the majority of users that's not the point.  When viewed on screen or printed to the sizes most people ...
  • Enjoyed that link.  I think he presents a very balanced view of why the M240 can be absolutely relevant for some people if they know what they're getting into.  But it's not for everyone.
  • None of the above. I'd buy a Zeiss Biogon C.  Actually I did buy one.  It's the most used lens on my M and it's brilliant.  Also compact and relatively affordable.
  • Actually go with the newer 21/3.5 classic.  Designed for digital sensors so much better around the edges of the frame.  Tiny and good performer.  Not sure if I'd get much benefit from a super fast ...
  • Some owners of the Leica branded cameras will swear there is a difference in JPEG processing with their cameras delivering a "Leica look". I was able to compare images taken side by side from the...

  • Replied in VE Day
    Preparations for our socially distanced street party yesterday - M240 plus CV75/1.8 Classic
  • Quite honestly for the uses you've outlined in this thread I'd buy her a good m43 body and put some of that money to the best m43 lenses you can.... Including the Panasonic Leica branded lenses.  ...
  • Oh dear it’s really come to this. A cat picture and not even a particularly good one as I missed focus a little.  Here’s Georgia, self isolating in sunny SE London. M240 plus Zeiss Planar 50/2
  • Pentax MX - best film camera I ever had, first camera I saved up to buy new, and first camera that got me paid work. Olympus E-1 - fits like a glove, built like a tank and under the right ...
  • I have the C Biogon 35/2.8 which is a superb match for the Typ 240.  Also the 50/2 Planar.  They're my most used lenses with the camera although I also very much enjoy my Voigtlanders ...
  • Replied in Hdew EM5III
    I've used them a couple of times too.  Recently bought a 12/2 and delivery was a bit slow... Despatch about 10 days after the order.  I wonder if maybe coronavirus related if they are importing ...
  • Occasionally you see broken cameras sold for spares and repairs only.  Maybe look out for one of those and contact the seller to see if they'll sell the hood separately?
