    Lucy .... has lots of hair! Voigtlander 35mm 1.2 Nokton ASPH Spent some time faffing with this camera once again. I find it a bit strange that although having the same pixel count as the Sony A9, the shots seem to be less detailed at close quarters. Perhaps the lenses themselves are...

    Reading through this stuff makes me feel better. I still have my ongoing dilemma over my Leica SL2s purchase. My latest thinking is that I will keep the SL2s and sell all my Sony gear to finance a Leica Q2. I use the A9 mainly for photographing Lucy because of it's eye focus but now she is 4...

    I have this yen for the Sigma 40mm 1.4 Art ..... I know it also comes in E mount though! They will only deduct £50 for the return which means I could go for the Q2 but as I have the RX1RII 35mm I wonder if this will be overkill .... I would then be taking a Q2, RX1RII and an M10 and 50mm...

    Sooc b & ư JPeg High contrast. Actually sent it back today. Awaiting to hear the re stocking fee .... if it puts the Q2 out of reach then I may just have it back and hope that an autofocus lens makes it more usable. Lots of reasons to return it. A). I don't need it .... (since when did that...

    Leica Leica SL2 - s

    I probably wouldn't shoot any moving targets with the M, would probably try and use a decent aperture and pre focus ..... but moving dogs and kids is a bit different. I can usually focus with the M but get the wrong eye! SL is probably better at kid shots as the eye viewfinder is so sharp and...

    Trying to focus with the 35mm Voigtlander at 1.2 ..... in poor lighting. Lucky to get this I think! Still on the brink ..... I don't think I want the Q2 though. Thinking the SL2s has "room to grow" as I will be able to use some af L mount lenses .... when I can afford any!

    Another comparison. Sony with the 50mm ZA and I'm not sure about the SL2s. It was either the 50mm Summilux or the 35mm Voigtlander. There were some pics I took with the Leica lens that the M to L adapter didn't recognise because I don't think I tightened it enough (it's a very snug fit!).

    Thank you so much for taking the time to post this, much appreciated. I've read a lot about the Q2, some saying the lens is nowhere as good as a "proper" 28mm Summilux but just a copy that is well corrected by software. This makes me think that maybe sticking with the SL2s might be a better...

    Thanks Matt, I guess I'm thinking that if the SL2s isn't giving me the rendering I like from the M10, then maybe the Q2 will be better? Also, autofocus :) What I don't want to do is spend a lot of money on a camera that I think is pretty much the same image quality as the A9 with a 35mm 1.4...

    Been playing with M10 and SL2s with the 35mm Voigtlander 1.2 II ASPH. First is the SL2s, both have lens corrections applied. If you just look at the flowers themselves I'm not seeing quite the same magic that the M10 seems to have ..... or am I going mad! I should say also that the top roses...

    No these are from the DNG files. I have used a Kodak preset and played with the white balance. I must say the camera does auto wb quite well. When I saw the price of a new M10 I decided to hang on to mine and traded in the A7RIII instead. My computer is not that old and is already struggling...

    Thought I would begin a new thread for this camera as I have traded in some stuff to get it in time to qualify for the free Leica L to M adapter ..... which are the only lenses I have for the moment as I now cannot afford to buy an autofocus one! These with the Voigtlander 35mm 1.2 II...
