Overall impression?  It is possible that this is the last digital M I will need to buy.

WHY

Very funny, really a great joke.

Please give me a cent for every person saying : This is probably my last camera/lens ....       :D  :P  :lol:

 

I remember the X1D announcement. How many did say "It's so wonderful, this is going to be my last camera", and are now standing here and thinking about ordering the M10 ...

I have already decided to get an M10 or two depending upon income taxes I need to pay. While I can afford the M10, I keep to a budget established when I signed over my estate to my housemate. It is comfortable living with a  financial buffer leveled to middle-class income.  Even Leica cannot persuade me otherwise.

 

Is that not a German kind of economic philosophy? (I admire German ideas of cash vs credit)

I think I will buy one. When I judge the things I buy by the amount of joy they give me, then my Leicas are some of my most worthwhile purchases.

I never say "never" but I'm pretty happy with the equipment I have now. I don't find myself overly motivated to buy anything. I'd love an X1D for the large sensor, but will only get interested to put money on the table when they offer the right lens for my intended use. I'd enjoy the viewfinder and sensor improvements in the M10, but only when they offer an equivalent M-D type model. Meanwhile, I'll keep on keeping on with what I have now, and sell off what I'm not using.

For those using the Visoflex on the M10; what data is available on the evf? is it the same as the information shown on the rear screen? is it customisable by any means?

 

Thanks for your help in advance!

It has GPS and without it you don't have GPS on your M10. It is not more or else customizable than LV via the screen. You can customize the colors in which focused areas are depicted, blue red white or green, and some others things which can be found in the manual on the Leica site

Thanks otto.f,

 

I am aware of the GPS add-on. What I am interested is in understanding what information is shown on the visoflex's screen while using it. Anyone using the EVF out there? also, is focus peak featured on the EVF?

 

Thanks!

The information on the EVF is identical to the information shown on the LCD. Just download and look at the sections in the M10 Instruction Manual for "display" and "monitor".

There are too many specific entries to enumerate them all here. (Yes, focus peaking is one of the display modes.)

I just downloaded an update to PhotoRaw, an iOS raw converter. Amongst other improvements, it has been upgraded to support the Leica M10 DNG files. Very useful for those (like me) who use an iPad Pro as their on-the-road field computer.

iOS was also recently updated to v10.2.1 ... I installed on my iPhone and iPads yesterday, it works well.

@ Leicanew: There's also an exposure-lineal from -3 to +3, like in the R8, to see how much you're under or overexposing
