  • I've seen better IQ from the X-Vario than from any other camera, Leica or otherwise. Does this Vario-Elmar lens do as well? John R.
  • Replied in DMC-LC1 Sensor
    John Corson, _thank you_. I had been contemplating using my beloved LC1 as a paperweight. Sending you a PM. John R.
  • Created question thread Digilux 2 Sensor
    Is it still possible to have the sensor replaced anywhere? (I think Leica no longer does it.) Or is the part itself available? I searched the web but couldn't find anything. Thank you, John R.
  • Created question thread DMC-LC1 Sensor
    At this late date, is it possible to have a bad sensor replaced anywhere, or is the part itself available for sale? I searched the web but found nothing. Thank you, John R.
  • Don't modern M-series cameras offer aperture-priority exposure? The camera would have to know the aperture the user has set; the camera can then set the shutter speed. John R.
  • Right. I think a hybrid viewfinder wouldn't be a good idea, since it would be pretty expensive, and most users would want either a rangefinder or an EVF, not both. I'd really like to see something ...
  • I don't know the M's architecture very well, but don't modern M lenses have what they call six-bit coding? that tells the camera some things about the lens, e.g. focal length (to set the ...
  • Created discussion thread EVF camera for M lenses?

  • It certainly would. John R.
  • Truly great -- maybe add in-body OIS, but no other changes. LeicaRumors had a rumor to that effect. But how likely is it?
  • You call the Q2 more responsive. What do you mean? John R.
  • Luigi, in Italy, hand-makes cases for Leicas. I think he'd be happy to add a belt loop for you, if he doesn't have one already. Very nice leather (I'm not affiliated). https://www.luigicases.com/ J ...
  • Seems like slightly more saturated color from the Lumix. John R.
  • Created discussion thread Dirt Road
    Santa Catarina, Baja California, Mexico. Digilux 2 jpg out of camera
  • Tough choice. I like the Q for full-frame and EVF, and its IQ is very good of course. But I've never seen IQ as good as what I've seen from the XV. Pictures really pop. It may be my next camera. Jo ...
