    Umweltministerin Schulze findet E-Scooter "total nervig" Svenja Schulze ist von der Tretroller-Flut in Berlin genervt. Die Umweltministerin hält E-Scooter auch für keinen besonders guten Beitrag zum Klimaschutz. https://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/umweltministerin-svenja-schulze-findet-e-scooter-total-nervig-a-1282461.html
  3. Oh, it's not GAS, I've been going at this for a while. Though I was pleased with the results I was getting with the old lens mix, having to put adapters on the LTMs, and dragging the CL along just to use its lenses kind of became a hassle. To be honest, my original plan was to switch to digital, and for that I was going to buy a Fuji X100F. But the store tried to pass off their demonstrator as new, and I took a pivot back to the M4-P. Since I already had the VC 35/2.5, I thought about just getting a Summicron V5. After crunching some numbers (the Konica is half the price of a Summicron), I decided that I could redo the whole kit, plus add a VC Meter II. That completes what I had planned to do all along, just at an accelerated rate. It makes sense to separate the CL from the M4-P so that I don't ever walk out the door with a lens in the wrong bag. Heck, one time I arrived at a location, only to find all I had was lenses, and no camera body. Don't need that to happen again. And the CL makes a nice two-lens daily user, or small travel outfit. PF
  4. He sums it up nicely...and slowly so that one can follow with subtitles.
  5. Today
  6. Thanks, Bart. It turned out to be a local problem at my service provider's end. After a couple of resets the problem was resolved. Thanks for all your help.
  7. OK this one is totally certifiable. I was trying to shoot the air show, and pulled out a Rollei Zeiss 250mm MF lens, with adapter to Canon, then to L mount. Couldn't find a plane but found other flying object nearby. So this is handheld, manual focus, cropped.... 1/800 sec. ISO 1600. In the original you can count the hairs on the legs.

  10. It seems it is the circuit board, rather than the light meter itself, that is non-repairable. Therefore, if your light meter ceases functioning because of a faulty circuit board, Leica can not provide a replacement. However, if it is not the circuit board, but a broken wiring connection or electrical component (resistor, diode, etc) in theory, it should be repairable. Finding a technician who can diagnose the fault and repair it is another matter. In short, it’s a risk. If you want to rake that gamble, go ahead with the TTL. If not, save up for an MP 0.58. I have one, and it is a wonderful camera. The 0.58 is a real treat with a 28 or 35mm lens, and you are completely justified in pursuing it. Best of luck in your search! J

  13. Perhaps true, but I enjoy the process of making images with the camera more than working at the computer. Just how I prefer to spend my time...
  14. Incredible colors! Really an eyecatcher!
  15. I really like it Adam! Totally different to most of your landscape photos. Completely another mood!

  18. I'm in 100% agreement. This is photography, not a popularity contest.
  19. I think the CL would be a good choice for a beginner - it is small, light and with a 24mp sensor and the ability to change lenses and even use M lenses, it is still a serious camera that she can grow with.
  20. The Leica engineers devised firmware upgrade process is completely thoughtless. I upgraded the SL body first, then three lenses. Each time the upgrade runs through its paces, in my case 4 times, (almost) all user settings get wiped out. Ridiculous.
  21. I'm planning to attend as long as the trains play nicely. Probably bring my IIIg and decide what lens(es) on the day. I assume the venue is still the Black Country Living Museum near Dudley? I should be able to get there by about 11.00. Pete.
