  • Replied in M10 at Night
    Thanks, John, Guenter, and Rodriguez! - Jared
  • Created discussion thread M10 at Night
    Here is an image I took last night from Edgartown, MA.  Probably should have shot it at f/2 instead of f/1.4 since there is a fair amount of astigmatism and coma at f/1.4; not exactly a surprise. ...
  • Replied in 75 Summicron
    Schneider has made lenses for Leica in the past, including lenses for 'M' mount. The first Leica 21mm's are probably the best known--the Super Angulons. The f/4 version and I believe the f/3.4 ...
  • I think the release of a Q Vario in the near future is very unlikely.  Can you imagine a full frame camera with a body the size of the Q with a 28-70 f/2.8 lens on the front of it?  Or even an f/4 ...
  • There are very, very few pictures out there these days that could not be taken with a huge range of cameras.  Almost everything I do could technically be done with a DSLR, virtually any current ...
  • I don't plan on getting one, but I have never understood the level of animosity towards most Leica products. Most of it, I think, comes from the fact that their cameras never offer good "value". ...

  • Oh, and here is some evidence regarding the improved high ISO performance.  I wouldn't have been able to do this with the M240 without a lot more integration time to address noise.  Here is a ...
  • I can't say that I agree with Lloyd, at least for my uses.  I don't care very much about the ISO dial.  I'm fine with it, but I was also fine with the dedicated ISO button on the M 240.  As long ...
  • Because the TL has an APS-C sized sensor, it doesn't need to be specially designed to work with M lenses.  The corner smearing is a non-issue because the corners on the TL are not near the edge of ...
  • The emphasis on contrast vs. resolution is now, in my experience, mostly gone.  Everyone is using aspheric glass, and the efficiency of modern multi-coatings allows designers to include a larger ...
  • The noise in a high ISO shot has three major components:  fixed pattern noise, read noise, and shot noise.  If it's a shorter exposure, the fixed pattern noise is usually swamped by read noise and ...
  • The R&D required in order to swap in a new chip for a given model of camera--especially in Leica's case where individual models often have differences in micro lens array, IR cut filter ...
  • Replied in Leica sensor
    You said, "this kind of resolution does make a difference." While there are circumstances where I would agree with you, very few of them would apply to users of 'M' cameras. In order to tell the ...
  • Honestly, I think you are missing something important... Let's assume, for sake of argument, that you are right and the engineering challenges of swapping out generations of sensors are trivial ...
  • Even photojournalists editorialize in their images. They do it by choosing what to photograph, when to snap the image, how to frame the picture, where to set focus within the frame, and even how ...
