  • I agree with you about the typ 109.  The TL shouldn't be included in the discussion as it was meant to be between two Leica zoom compacts with fixed zoom lenses and almost identical zoom range. I ...
  • These discussions have been helpful, thanks everyone. I ended up selling my Ricoh GR II, which is a fine camera in it's own right, and I found a nice X1 with OVF, grip, and case.  I find the x1 ...
  • And the d109 remains truly compact! That can't be said for an XV with evf attached or not, at around 650 grams weight.  Regardless of other virtues Leica abandoned the X concept with the vario ...
  • I agree with you. The more I look into it the more I'm concluding it would be foolish to give up my d109 for the x vario. With all due respect to those for whom it works it is just not the all ...
  • Thanks Rodrigue, I appreciate your great review and photos. I will give serious consideration to the x vario. I'd need to sell both X1 and Dlux 109 and maybe then I could fund a used XV. Then I ...
  • OK...but isn't X Vario 2 words, or maybe 1 1/2 ?
  • Really nice looking photos, thanks for posting those. Did you do much post processing on those? The color is wonderful. I am not against bokeh btw, I like nice oof backgrounds as much as anyone ...
  • Replied in T, TL, or TL2
    While I appreciate any advice, those pointing me towards a TL or TL2, or even T seem off the map.   I must say I fail to see any compelling reason I would want anything in that type instead of ...
  • Hoping to pick your brains again as I steadily find myself getting sucked into the Leica rabbit hole. So far I am only in as deep as my dynamic duo of of an X1 and  Dlux109. I like both and while ...
  • I like the second photo the best, both nice. I'd leave the pole, but that's just me.
  • Replied in Gr ii for x1?
    There is certainly a tendency to get caught up in gear to the exclusion of aesthetic photographic considerations. To one degree or another I am sure most of us have gotten caught in that cycle at ...
  • Replied in GXR system
    Thanks for that information. Do you know of an adapter to use39mm LTM screw mount lenses with the M module?
  • Created discussion thread back to the future with X1
    Well I found a rather pristine X1 kit with viewfinder, grip, etc for relatively little money and went for it. In a prior post I was considering this vs my GR II and had sort of decided it was a ...
  • I tried to repair my Sigma DP1. No experience in this, but I was an electronics tech for most of my working life and figured I'd have as good a chance as the next guy. Short version, it was a ...
  • Replied in m 43 "addendum"
    I meant to add, for what it is worth, that of the m4/3 stuff I've owned (most of it purchased used), the one I remember as the best body was the OMD E-M5, and for a all in one starter system I ...
  • Replied in GXR system
    I'm not the one to ask about smart buys.  I guess it is a question of how much you value current technology for what it may or may not bring to your particular usage. So I won't try to convince you ...
  • Created discussion thread GXR system
    Hello all, I presently am using a Ricoh GR II I have recently bought, and while I completely appreciate its IQ and ergonomic design, for my needs I have found the 28mm focal length somewhat ...
  • Replied in Gr ii for x1?
    Thanks for the link. Interesting..unfortunately gets me re-interested in the x..now x2..arg.
  • So you are saying the Made in Japan on the leica-pan is a bold face lie  on Leica's part? I don't personally hold that it makes a huge difference where anything is made anymore, all depending on ...
  • A lot is subjective and conjecture. That said, I have used both and while they can produced equally nice output I like the design and feel of the DL typ 109 more than the LX100. While the internal ...
