    Since this is a Leica specific forum, we should probably keep an eye out for equipment being sold through here.

    Sony Quick thoughts on the WX300

    So I retired my Panasonic TZ5 and ended up with the WX300. * First and foremost, its size. This thing is TINY... its amazing they managed to fit a decent 20x zoom optic inside. Its noticeably lighter when compared to my TZ5. It slides right into my pants pocket and doesn't feel like...

    Leica Compact flashes

    I find that a lot Leica shooters have this notion that flash should be avoided at all costs or take some pride in "natural light" photography... I personally think that's a bit narrow but hey whatever. So here's a thread for the few that don't shy away from flashes.... and may be looking for...

    Leica Showcase Leica 35mm f/1.4 Summilux M aspherical FLE (floating lens element)

    I splurged and purchased the latest version with the floating lens element 2 weeks ago. I haven't had the opportunity to go out and really get to know this dream lens... twin babies tend to have that effect. So here are a couple "snapshots" taken inside.... I can already see I'm going to...

    Leica Showcase Epson R-D1

    Its rare to see these days... So I am starting an image archive for this perfect blend of Voigtlander and Epson... classic and modern. In many ways, this camera was superior to my Leica M8. 1:1 viewfinder. Better control layout (everything settable via dials). Better visual indicators...

    Leica Showcase Leica 24mm f/2.8 ELmarit

    One of my favorite "story-telling" lenses.... especially on the M9. This is from the M8:

    Leica Showcase Leica 75mm f/2.5 Summarit M

    I'm so impressed with the "budget" Summarit line. 75mm Summarit was a frequent on my M8:

    Leica Showcase Voigtlander 12mm f/5.6 Aspherical Heliar LTM

    Leica M9 (LTM adapter). Great lens for film but you have to work the color shifts at the corners on digital M bodies. The 12mm viewfinder it came with is among the best viewfinders I have ever used.

    Leica Showcase Leica 50mm f/1 Noctilux

    I totally enjoy this lens so I am going to start a sample image archive. Its definitely NOT the lens for everyone. Slow focus throw, big, heavy, not particularly sharp, a bit of CA, doesn't focus closely, can be difficult to use.... but it renders uniquely. It begs to be shot wide open...

    So my 2001 Audi TT 225 Quattro purchased 3 years ago with barely 19k on the clock for way south of book value decided to eat its cylinder #1 exhaust valve because a stupid design.... it lasted 65k miles. I work on my own cars and maintain them since I was a kid with is first junker 74 Plymouth...

    Leica M8 IR

    As many of you know, the Leica M8 took a lot of criticism over its overly sensitivity to the IR spectrum. So much so that Leica would pay for two IR cut filters with every purchase of a new M8. I decided to experiment using this sensitivity to my advantage.... surprisingly usable! I was...

    Amin Requested feedback.

    So feedback.. * I like the forum layout. Nice and clean.. keep it minimalistic. This goes for the subforums too. * Don't really need to use "Leica" in the name of each forum since Leica focus is pretty much the theme of the forum. Somply "M and LTM cameras", "M and LTM lenses", and...

    This is a continued conversation from the following thread that I decided to give its own thread rather than bring the "Leica M Image Thread" to a tangent. Eastern State Penitentiary - a set on Flickr Many Thanks...
