  • Just curious. In the samples you posted, in one case the bad shot was the second one while in the other the bad shot was the first one. In both cases, were you posting the images in chronological ...
  • Impressive restraint, my friend.  Glad you shared the story here.
  • Replied in Solar Red Spot
    I've got two lovely R8 bodies, one silver and one black, which I hope will bring me thousands of US dollars when the solar flares swallow Mercury and fry Venus. I'll probably hang onto my four ...
  • No critique or criticism, but a question from someone who's still considering buying a used one: 1) did you try any traditional portrait  (75mm equivalent focal length, wide open aperture  -- I ...
  • True dat. However, I'm the proud owner of four R primes -- no APO's, but I would love to see how the SL would render the old-time glass...
  • Even at post-SL2 used prices, I certainly won't be able to afford it, but that won't prevent me from coveting it. I think it's beautiful in a form-follows-function way.  The lines are pure and ...
  • Oh, those shadows!  Not just the finger-pointer but the companion.
  • If anyone is curious to see just how fine the DL7 lens/sensor combo is, I'd encourage you to click on the original of #2 (lakeside scene), and then click again to zoom in. Take a look at the folks ...
  • Because you processed the images, it's hard to make a valid comparison except to say that the D-Lux 7 clearly has a lens/sensor combination that delivers super IQ. Did you alter the colors much?  ...
  • Would look great with authentic leiderhosen and one of those Bavarian elf-hats! Just kidding. By all accounts it's a great camera, and you own a special version of it. Enjoy it! (I must say, ...
  • Thanks, KC, but the Leica adapter alone would eat up most of my budget!  Besides that, my lenses are non-Rom (3-cam, but pre-Rom) so I'm not accustomed to exif info. I will, however, play the ...
  • Jon, The Pentax is an intriguing suggestion, as it clearly has a very dedicated group of fanatical fans.  And, yes, it does look like a body that is built to last. However, as far as I can tell, ...
  • Thanks for weighing in, Godfrey.  I think you may have overlooked my budget: about $1000 US.
  • Thanks, Oliver. For my (or your) purposes, is it a worthwhile upgrade from version ii to version iii?  I'm assuming that the autofocus speed, battery life, touch screen and HD slo-mo video are the ...
  • Replied in D-Lux 7 vs GX9
    THANK YOU, KP, for mentioning the aesthetics.  There's little one can do about the lens length, but I share your strong preference for an all-black camera.  I respect those who like the classic ...
  • Thank you for all the recommendations.  Now I'm checking the color rendition from some of your suggestions.  When I see samples from the A7r, for example, everything looks excellent -- except that ...
  • Created discussion thread Full-frame body for R lenses?
    I've got four R lenses (35, 50, 90, 135) in search of a body with a full-frame sensor. Budget: $1000 US.   Any recommendations?  Any strong preferences between Canon, Sony and Nikon? I'm okay with ...
  • Now THAT'S a good month!  Those are inspiring images -- inspiring me to stop procrastinating and finally (after 15 years of contemplating it) buy a small, high-quality piece of gear. Question about ...
  • Anyone want to guess: a) when the first D-Lux7 pecial edition might be distributed, and b) what the theme will be? The prize will be... your pride.
  • Good point about the skirt.  The follow up, not so much.                                                                                                                                            ...
