  • Beautiful it is.  Better a sculpture than a photographer's tool.
  • Love the image of shadows on the cobblestones.  And something about the girl in purple with the red pen is vibrantly real.  There is nothing technically exceptional about that image, but you ...
  • I'd rather look at cool -- or cold -- pictures than debate climate change, but I'd encourage folks with a casual interest in the subject to dig a little deeper into the source of these graphs.  ...
  • Replied in Rough Seas
    And where, may I ask, do you live? I found the third shot most powerful, and I appreciate your comment about the all-too-overused word awesome . Thank you for sharing these images.
  • Rental cost for Leica rangefinders is $60-80 U.S. per day, and lenses (Voigtlander or Leica) range from $25-$75 a day.  So, renting for  a few days will cost plenty. Compared to the investment of ...
  • After getting all the advice you can, I would strongly recommend borrowing or renting one or two of the favorites to see if you like the results.  Using them will be awkward -- because they'll be ...
  • Love the expectant look of the "customer" in the final photo.
  • I borrowed the Leica version of the LX100 last week, and almost every time I picked it up, it seemed that I'd inadvertently changed a setting. For everything from white balance to ISO to exposure ...
  • Thank you, Yahoo, for your recommendation of the grip.  During my rental week, though,  I ran out of battery power twice.  Lacking a back-up battery, my shooting was over for the day.  So if I buy ...
  • Created discussion thread Question for DLux 109 owners
    I rented the DLux for a five-day trip, and I am very pleased with the results.  Even though I wasn't very familiar with the controls, I managed to figure things out fairly quickly.  In ...
  • Thank you!  There are a lot of variables for someone late to the digital world.
  • Created discussion thread Best memory card for LX100
    What's a good speed/class of memory card for a LX100? It will be used for stills as well as 4K. I'm still pretty new to all the options of digital photography, and the range of choices is confusing. ...
  • Created discussion thread Recommended memory card for D-Lux 109?
    Any experienced D-Lux 109 users who can recommend the best card for a 109?  It will be used for 4K recording and still capture. Thanks.
  • Wherever the .01 percenters are, that's where Leica will sell.
  • Either I've had too many sips of what's in the cup or else there's a hint of a double rainbow there to the right of the primary.  Does a little contrast or saturation tweaking bring it out?  Or ...
  • Images like this make me kick myself for not buying the LX100 three years ago.  And now, I can't decide whether to buy it now anyway, or wait for the Godot-mythical LX200. I don't own a compact ...
  • My favorite comedy of all time.  I keep thinking it will grow stale or painfully dated, but a few weeks ago it was broadcast on a Saturday night when I was home alone, and....  I couldn't turn it off.
  • From the left side of the North Atlantic, I'd say bummed -- probably not as strong as gutted.
  • What a fine set of images!  I particularly like the square one, the third one down.  I think what appeals to me is the way the right side of his silhouette complements the left side of hers -- ...
  • This bespectacled guy loves the size of the EVF.  I also like the top dials more than some folks, especially on the black version. I'm a little surprised that Leica opted to flatten the base/mount ...
