    Leica SL 24-90mm: Big, Heavy, Versatile, and Superb.

    I was told by one of the dealer that the IQ of the SL is better than the M10. Have not had the chance to compare the 2 but used the SL for a short amount of time and have to admit, the IQ is quite addicting. Congrats Carl. The collection is really growing.

    It does that wonderful picture Carl. I think the IQ is better than the M 240

    Leica Nocticron with Softar

    Thanks Brian. Very little processing on that shot. Just some minor slider adjustments in LR. I ended up getting 4 different Softar filters. 2 in 52mm, a 58mm and a 67mm.

    Leica Trying out the SL.

    I think the UI of SL is an acquired taste. I think it is much easier than the Oly but again, many Oly users will probably disagree. I think they did it so that it is in sync with the S series camera so that pro users will have one similar interface. What I don't like most is the grip. It...

    Leica Nocticron with Softar

    I've been using the Lumix G85 lately and leaving the M body behind. This one is with the 42.5mm Nocticron and a Carl Zeiss Softar II filter. With photoshop, you can get very similar result so no one wants these cumbersome filters anymore. I was able to pick up the Softar at a bargain. I...

    Leica Trying out the SL.

    Congrats on the new purchase Carl. I actually love the idea of the SL but when I had it back a few months ago, I couldn't stand the weight and the grip of that camera. Love the image and the EVF but not enough to keep the camera. I still think about getting one every now and then but for now...

    Leica Sony A9 .... WOW!

    I'm sure that Canon/Nikon top end cameras will be affected by the A9. However, if the IQ is excellent, I have to wonder how that would affect the already slow selling SL. For me, I really like the SL's EVF and the joystick. The User Interface is very typical Leica with its simplicity. IQ...

    Leica Sony A9 .... WOW!

    Just saw the press release of the new Sony A9. Wow, amazing in terms of specs. I am glad that I got rid of the SL. This looks to be a better model at a cheaper price point ($4500) Not cheap as compare to other Sony model but when compare to the SL, it is much cheaper. First Look: Sony a9...

    Leica m240 purchase issue

    I never used the cord provided by the camera company. I used to be a buyer for a consumer electronic company and I have lots of spare cable that we ended throwing out due to one thing or the other. I kept some and I used them. They are all the same. The amount of current going to the charger...

    Leica The other Noct

    Hi Carl, I actually brought the 42.5 and the 25 with me. The 25mm is probably a better lens given the situation where there were just tons of people and the place is packed because it was the day before the Marathon. But I got too lazy to switch lens. Like you said, the 25mm also does not...

    Leica The other Noct

    I have been shooting mostly with my new Lumix G85 and the Nocticron 42.5mm lately. Pretty impressed with the IQ considering that it is only a little M4/3 setup. (yeah, the Nocticron is not really that tiny but much lighter than the other Noct). Here are some of the pic I took of my kids...

    Leica m240 purchase issue

    If I were the seller, I would probably just send you a cord to satisfy you. I am very picky and I tend to rate what I sell very conservatively. I expect the same thing from a seller but that is usually not the case. I also tend to go out of my way to make the transaction satisfactory to both...
