  • Replied in M10M vs M246
    Yes, indeed, these articles, at Red Dot Forum, are very useful for anyone considering acquiring a Monochrom. The first one directly helped me to decide whether to add an M10 Monochrom, or to ...
  • I have read/heard about hair sheep leather being used in hard-use gloves, so, I reckon that the material has merit. I learned a hard lesson about carrying a Leica camera inside a “wrap,” however, ...
  • Too late to edit, but where I said that I did not want a “neck strap or sling to interfere with arm movements,” I meant to type “WRIST” instead of “neck.” That was part of a long edit, that...

  • I will use a wrist strap situationally. (I was not sure that “situationally” was a word, but, this iPad’s spell-check accepts it.) The little Peak Design disc anchors make it easy to change straps,...

  • Well, 2017 to 2019 was our time to add significant Nikon DSLR cameras and SLR lenses, for my wife and myself, so, we are not actively “still buying” new F mount lenses, but, there are several that ...
  • Wonderful image! Thanks for creating and sharing it with us. :-) Thanks, also, for the reminder that I should resume my search for a really good pre-owned Nikkor AF 85mm f/1.4D. I have yet to buy ...
  • Enjoy your Voigtlander 50mm APO! :-) My favorite 50mm will (likely) always be my Summilux-M 50mm ASPH, but there are compelling reasons to have the Voigtlander 50mm APO. I believe that I will ...
  • The first Leica camera I actually handled, while received a brief tutorial, was a black-painted MP. (No film was loaded, so it was not a “ test shoot.”) It was inside a display case at a nearby ...
  • I have used Zeiss ZF.2, ZE, and ZM lenses. There is no magic, but simply good design, good engineering, and good quality control. Notably, not all Zeiss lenses have the same visual signature. One ...
  • This you-tube video shows the camera being inserted into, and removed from a Billingham Stowaway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QB0Ud9yuO4 Personally, I would rather not push/pull a camera ...
  • I am favorably impressed with my Nokton 21mm VM, thus far. I took delivery several months ago along with a Nokton 50mm f/1.0 VM, but have been slow to start much test-shooting, in the summer heat. ...
  • Replied in Special Lenses
    Well, one needs a lens, and a camera. Each, alone, is of little use, but, a good lens can be used on a succession of cameras, and may well be adaptable to other camera systems. It was the Canon ...
  • True, but I am annoyed that government entities seem to expect everyone to always carry a “smart” communication device. The sign in this park was not so bad, but the parking meters in some cities ...
  • Have you tried, lately, such as in 2022? Perhaps even more important, sometimes it is necessary to speak to an actual human, at an actual fulfillment location, when the INCORRECT product is ...
  • Sometimes, I want a very small file. 4MP can be enough, for some purposes. The Nikon D2hs has a 4MP sensor. (Not that there is anything wrong with large image files; I have a D850, and a Canon 5Ds ...
  • There seems to be no way to contact a human being, about a specific problem, with a specific item, through the Amazon system. I know, because I have tried. True, there appears to be a ...
  • I drove into Houston, Texas, yesterday, to a city park, that is also a designated nature reserve, and noticed a sign that declared that professional photographers were required to obtain a permit, ...
  • Yes, one could choose to carry a light-weight camera, and replace it when necessary. Much of the time, however, I will use a weather-resistant camera, when everything is perfectly dry and sunny, ...
  • Well, the king, and/or his vassals, get their cut, when the intent of the activity is commercial. The legal precedents probably date quite far back into history. Photography/Videography, in and of ...
  • The OP asked about the Leica Thumb Grip for the M11. You have shown something else, in this image. Please share the ID of this product.
