  • How about a CL as a kit with the 18-56 zoom as a starting point. Just 3650 Euros in Germany (including 19% German sales tax). We now have 2018 and a rangefinder camera like the M should not be the ...

    Thank you in return, Cyril. Fortunately our little discussion stays in a very civilized mode. This is not always the case within these discussions. And as far as the "dogmatic statement" is ...

    Well, Cyril, I'm a bit surprized that this single sentence - BTW: I didn't create it but took it from many discussions - got that much negative attention. Because it describes often voiced ...

    Looking again through my four posts within this discussion I think having made clear what I intended to convey with the - may be a bit exaggerated - sentence "pixel peeper and brick wall ...
  • Replied in I agree
    Obviously you "liked" the expression "pixel peeper and brick wall photographer" that much that you refer to it quite often. Of course I do not consider your words to be meant too seriously but ...

    This image is cropped from the original 12MP image by a factor of 2x showing only the middle part with now only 3MP. Even then it would require a 48" monitor to be displayed at 100%. Therefore, ...
  • Replied in I agree
    The expression "pixel peeper and brick wall photographer" usually is used for people who very carefully look at an image in 100% display mode and notice and complain about unsharp parts of the ...
  • Isn't this a very strong argument to eventually leave the path "prime lenses only"? How about zoom lenses like the SL 24-90 Vario-Elmarit. Just asking :-) Andreas

    May I disagree respectfully? I'm using the D-Lux (aka LX100) since November 2014. Now after several thousands of images it still is a wonderful camera which by no means is lacking resolution from ...
  • I don't really know what "gradient transition from dark to light looks like a 16 color image from windows 3.1" does mean. Therefore, my contribution may be of no help whatsoever. Instead I've ...
  • My opinion/experience as well. See these two images, the first with ACR default sharpening, the second with optimized sharpening: ACR default sharpening: 25/1.0/25/00 ACR optimized sharpening: ...
  • Yes, Tom, you are right again. Your experience with comments mirror mine, too much applause for mediocre images. This is particulary the case on the Leica forum where it seems to be considered a ...
  • You are right. But the mostly positive feedbacks are very welcomed for a simple reason: almost all of us are amateur photographers who are more or less proud of our gear and of the images we take. ...
  • Apparently you don't like this image. But your detailed comment is more from a technical point of view. This image has almost left the technical side of a photography and stepped into the artistic ...
  • When I got my D-Lux (aka LX100) I did try to get the WIFI connection working. Eventually I succeeded but it was indeed a hassle and, BTW, not stable. Sometimes it worked and sometimes not. And - ...

    Well Gator, the light is important, but much more important is the eye of the photographer to recognize the situation. A really wonderful image. Touching. And a good example for the potential of ...

    This image has a mood like an atmospheric painting. It's kind of attractively unreal. In particular the back light from the muted sun. Great shot. Andreas
  • Bingo, Vincent! Thanks for clarification. Now as you mention it I seem to remember having also heard during the last years about this JPG behaviour of the LX100 - and of course of the D-Lux (109) ...
  • The face of my daughter seems to show some motion blur because the other parts of the image are sharper. Even with a fair amount of noise reduction there is still noise visible. For this very ...
  • Short answer Vincent, you are right with "pixel peeping" which should be by no means the standard for judging images. The total impression does count . And your images convey a really good ...
