  • An EVF is significantly cheaper to manufacture than the flipping mirror & prism box including the man-power needed to install and calibrate. Size may be a major gain to the user and I appreciate ...
  • I have read the answer to this elsewhere several times. It boils down to : Leica is involved and gives approval to use the Leica name after they have reviewed the lens design and samples. I have ...
  • Replied in Mine is fine
    After reading this thread I ran a second test on the 12/1.4 that I received this week. Checks were run on a GX85 (no AA filter) with my favorite brick wall as the target.  No signs of decentering ...
  • Replied in Ross :
    Maybe it is easier to pace the vibrations with the M8. I'll have to give it a test run....:-) She likes the M8 and that might be a useful side effect, too.
  • Don't be sorry.....some teen-agers, like my 17 year old grand daughter, are at that age where they are out of focus 23 out of 24 hours every day.......:-)  Not only that, they seem to vibrate on ...
  • On the GX85 IBIS is active while using the 75/1.8, unless you turn it off for use on a tripod.
  • Hi Jim, When I went on my last quest for the HG, I ended up with a Pany GX85 to hang my M lenses on. It worked for me and I now have a bunch of mFt lenses which also fit my eM5II. Not as sexy and ...
  • 2 different bodies, sensors & lenses.......even the focus plane could be non identical. The APO looks well corrected for internal flare. It could even be evaluated as approaching the "clinical ...
  • Two versions of the 50 Cron at work here.
  • Hi Jim: I do or have used Color filters with JPEG camera shots. I have this affliction of being a darkroom escapee and with it came a sense of how colors render in B&W emulsions. Digital monochrome ...
  • Hi Tord, I have the 42.5/1.7 and, of course I have the CX-32/1.2 for that other system. Short tele lenses are my normal focal length. If you do the math these lenses are equivalents and in normal ...
  • The first OM zoom was the 75-150/f4, but the lens on his camera has a bigger filter than 49mm. I had that zoom with my original kit  in the early 70s. The 135/f2.8 had a 55mm filter. The ...
  • I love it when a plan comes together.......:-D
  • I have 2 mFT bodies, M5II and GX85 and 6 M mount lenses. Everything works and the only issues will be how fast you need to focus and the lack of wide angles. I admit to being lazy and soon added ...
  • That is one of my favorite combinations.  At the moment I am into monochrome with L-Mono on things just as I find them.
  • In my case it is the mark II. I am an OLY-digital user from 2003 with 4/3rds and now have mFT. My N1 stuff came when I was looking for fast AF and the early mFT stuff couldn't match N1. Mt N1 gear ...
  • Replied in Hotshoe cover?
    In the olden days the end flap of a film box could be folded to fit and act as a reminder of what film I had loaded. At least one of my OM bodies has the one from the last roll of film that I ...
  • Jim, Your info is good. As with all M bodies with meters it was a compromise but it worked. The swinging arm prohibited some lenses. The spot meter was definitely a true spot but it changed with ...
  • Of my M Leica bodies the M5 probably the most "clicks" on it. It was the first M Leica to have a built in TTL spot meter and arrived when I had run out of patience with handheld meters or ...
  • Replied in A nutty year
    For me it is acorns....crunch, crunch underfoot and sometimes in the night like hail on the roof..... Never seen quite as bumper an acorn crop in the 18 years we've been here in SA. What do the ...
