  • Thanks! I actually have the 67mm filter holder but was worry that filter system might cause vignetting for Ultra Wide lens.
  • Created discussion thread Filter System for Ultra Wide WATE
    Hi, Anyone can advise if any filter system for use on Tri Elmar WATE? Or a work around? I have checked the LEE filter site but not compatible with their seven 5 system. Thanks. Jim
  • Replied in New website
    Nie site and photos! Easy to navigate too. Mind to share the tools you use for this site?
  • I always read this blog http://blog.leica-camera.com/ Not sure if this is what you looking for. Have a good weekend!
  • Commented on article Fujifilm X100F Review

    Yes, the Japanese and the Chinese are very superstitious when coming to number 4 as it literally means "DIE" in their native language.

  • Replied in Leica M10
    Hi, The answer is yes, technically speaking. They are the WATE/MATE. The construct is zoom capable and you can really zoom in a real continuous movement . Best to work with EVF/LV to get the ...
  • You guys do have a valid point. As a rangefinder shooter for a long time, I made my life easier. Most of my street photos are in F8 and if I shoot wide open, it will be mostly F2. Landscape either...

  • Replied in oh really?
    I do not understand what is an old lens. Lens is timeless. Besides, there is nothing wrong with the existing 23mm lenses on the x100 series other than not WR rated. They are really good and sharp, ...
  • My first Leica lens is a 35 cron. Very versatile and small. 50 cron is good too if you are into this FL.
  • theREALbmills , I do not have the long answer for you. But you reminds me of myself when I started to venture into the Leica M territory years ago from Canon DSLR (EOS 10D, EOS 5DMK3). Go for what ...
  • Since there is no electrical signal between the lens and the camera body, no aperture value is sent to the camera body for Leica M cameras. Even if you can see the aperture value, it is just an...

  • I like the way you tell the story with your camera. I think it is more of your eyes then the camera :) Great work!
  • Replied in Q for CUBA
    I have not been to Cuba but from a street photography perspective, yes, you are good to go with a 28mm setup. Usually, my take is, just go with the flow. Do not let the choice of equipment worry ...
  • Hi, You have a nice setup. My suggestion to you is just to bring the X100 and leave the rest at home. The single lens setup will force you to take more photos rather than thinking of changing lens ...
  • This feature already available in the existing M240. Nothing new. But I do agree it is a good feature.
  • Great photos Michael. Knowing the limitation of the small sensor, I thought you did a great job at telling the story. I really dun care about the tools you use.

  • I like the minimalist design. If I were to get one, will complement it with the Oly 17mm F1.8.

  • It's on Amazon on pre-order, http://amzn.to/2dBozRj

  • YI M1 is selling at 499 with kits. Probably the cheapest mirrorless body you can get. With a good m43 lens, it will rocks!

  • Replied in My 2 cents...
    There is not much you can do in an environment like this. In post process, you may adjust the colour temperature and play with the histogram. If you are a BnW shooter then that should have less of ...
