  • I like the three. As Robert Capa says, you have to be close enough, and you did it :-)
  • Prof. Rohde, yes, M9 has different saturation. In the LFI (Leica Fotografie International) Magazine 6/2014, there is a color comparison between M9 and M (Typ 240). It says (translated by me from ...
  • (Bold in previous paragaph added by me). I know what you mean. You can see in this forum, people still using the SD14 or other older Sigma cameras. In ten years, the sd Quattro H wil still be ...
  • Last week, in Photokina, Sigma announced that in 2019 it will be a new Foveon camera with a L mount. SA lenses will have and adapter to L mount. To me this means, that the SA mount is “abandoned”. ...
  • Thanks for the comment. It is a shop window in Munich. There are two “hidden” champagne glasses:
  • Ok, me contributing to the „rumors“. Some Leica T lenses are made in Japan (e.g. Leica TL 23mm F2). I read somewhere that Leica collaborated with Panasonic in the design of these lenses (because ...
  • great pics, the second is what I call "creative complexity".
  • I bought a Zeiss 25mm ZM and I compared the exposure (I did several measures). The Zeiss is exact with the stops, the 7Artisans has variations. My conclusions are: (1) The 7Artisans is more F2.4 ...
  • Maybe if you want to be compact Lowepro Adventure Ultra 100. I have it and used it for other cameras (A7, etc), but this reviewer use it for the Leica Q: https://www.alexcornell.com/leica-q-review/
  • I’m afraid that I can’t do such comparison. Maybe the DPR staff should do it. The exposure numbers that I post were against a white wall. Anyway I took a pair of photos today. JPEG straight out of ...
  • Thanks Prof. Rohde for the comments. This was my picture 105 with this camera, still a long way to learn how to use it :-)
  • Used Leica T (in Germany sells for 400EUR). Leica Vario-Elmar-T 18-56mm F3.5-5.6 (around 1300EUR new, maybe you find it used). and be happy.
  • Thanks David. You are right. I just did a fast test, and it looks that the 7Artisans 35mm F2 is not consistent until F4. Exposure at F8 and F11 is similar to the Sony RX1. Below my results, all at ...
  • Created discussion thread Exposure: Leica T + 7A 35mm F2
    Recently I bought a Leica T (prices are too low!). As a first lens, I bought also a 7Artisans 35mm F2 with a Fotodiox L(M)-L(T) adapter. Based in my experience, I will say that the camera needs a ...
  • Fuji GFX, PhaseOne, or Hasselblad cameras are also not in the list. Not only Sigma.
  • Hi, not a Zeiss lens. From Mr. Kono, Sigma: "[...] We started designing it about three years ago. Our primary goal was to make a lens that withstands the DP2 Merrill's sensor which requires ...
  • Replied in Good Morning
    What is is worhty of a ban is the full thread in my opinion. Or maybe delete it. The OP is a troll. Note that now we start to discuss what should be posted. I apologize to the people that is ...
  • Replied in Good Morning
    He is just trolling or a dummkopf. This is his/her first post. Let's see if he/she replies to someone here.

  • The first version of the Sony A7 has a sensor reflection problem. It seems that other Sony versions (Sony A7R, A7II, etc) has not this problem. I talk by experience, the Sony A7 ruined my ...
