  1. Finally.. I have retired!! I have a Q2, M10, 21 mm f/3.4, 35 mm f/2, my Dad's old 135 mm, f/4.5, 50 mm, f/1.4, all M's. So I am thinking of the SL-2, Had the SL while I was working, and found it only good on car vacations. So I sold it for the Q2. So I am now looking at the new SL-2, what SL lens would you buy if you could only buy one?? Never made a nickel with my photos, nor do I every plan to. This is a total feel good purchase.
  2. How is the 90-280 without an extender for bird photos? When I went to Africa I used my Canon 400 mm and it was fine. Since that trip in 2005, I have been all Leica. Comments please.
  3. Thanks for the replies, I own a Q2, and enjoy the ease of use. On my M10 I use the 21 mm, 35 cron and the 50 lux. I had an SL with an adapter, but I decided to trade back to an M( I had an M8) I had a 24-90 on loan for my SL, but the weight was nuts. Now looking at the SL2 and a 75 or 90. Comments? Thanks
  4. If you could only afford one lens with the SL2, what would it be?
  5. I have been using my Q2 almost all the time. Barely touching my M10. As I age I am really liking auto focus. So I am thinking of trading my M10 towards a n SL2. I have 5 M lenes and I would love to use them again. Thanks, Cheers
  6. I have an iMac. I downloaded the file to my download folder, then drag it to my card. When inserted into the camera, it claims no update seen. Any hints? Thanks
  7. Any news on when the Q2 will ship in the US?
  8. Any photos of the Safari with a black lens?
  9. Please let me paint a picture.. Sixty two year old doctor..still working and loving what he does...On his way to work...perhaps has some medical charts, perhaps some leftovers from the night before, but always his current M-10 with the lens Du Jour. Just in case that Pulitzer Prize winning photo is just around the next bend. I want and need that brief case!! I am 62!! Not looking for a backpack, not looking for the messenger bag that is made of some material that had it been on the Titanic, they could have patched the hole! And guess what? Not to say that money is no object, but I have been working like crazy for decades! I am willing to pay for that perfect case. What is that Case?? Charts, lunch, and camera?? Please let it match my tan pants and blue shirt!! Cheers and Happy holidays!!
  10. I have been using the M system for decades now. In 2017 I sold my M8 , however, I was unable to find a new M10. So I purchased a new SL. I only used my M lenses, and really liked the camera, but I felt that it was too heavy, too big. And when only using M lenses, I was not using the camera to it's fullest. So I sold it and found the M 10. I now am having trouble focusing as I get older. So I am thinking of going back to the SL. But it is still too big and heavy. So after boring all of you with my story. I am looking at the CL, and starting with the 18 mm. As always, I really appreciate everyones comments. Cheers, JL
  11. Been using the 28 mm f/ 2.8. One of the main reasons I like this lens is because of the small size. WhenI had my M8, I sold the 2008 version of the 28 mm f/2.8 because I just did not like the FOV with the crop. So should I be looking to trade the 28 mm f/2.8 for this way smaller size 28 mm? I really am looking for a way to make my M10 as small as possible. Cheers
  12. Loving my M 10, my family and I are bird watchers and are going to invest into a spotting scope. I have always been a big fan of Swarovski Optics and we are looking at an ATX scope. However, I am having trouble locating a adapter to attach the camera and scope. Can I only use a M10 with a Leica scope? Is anyone using a M camera with any kind of spotting scope? Cheers,
  13. Thanks for the help. I am interested in water shots. Have you used the SL with a M lens and an ND filter? Thanks
  14. I have been using the 21 mm f/3.4 for the past 10 months, and after a recent trip, I am really enjoying this lens. I would now like to try some landscape shots with a ND filter. What power are forum members using, what makes? What other types of filters are you using? Thanks
  15. Just leaving Ireland and the 35 mm was my most used.
  16. So sorry, I now have a M10. The SE 21 mm, 35 mm Cron, a 50 mm Lux. The 21 mm SE, just doesn’t seem to have the sharpness of my 35 Cron. So I am thinking of selling the 21 and replacing it with one of the 28 mm. My question is do you think 28 Cron is a better lens than the 28 mm f/2.8?
  17. Sorry in meant the SE 21 mm f/3.4. My Cron 35 mm. Is as sharp as a tack and I love using it. My question was, are Cron’s That much better, regardless of the size? I have a 24 SE that I used with my M8, and just didn’t like the results. Thanks
  18. I have been using the SE 21 mm since last summer. Just not that jazzed. I love my 35 mm f 2.0. And want something wider. So the small size of the 2.8 is very attractive, but is the cron lens that much better than an SE lens? Should I go with a 28 mm cron f2.0, or go with the 2.8? Thanks

    How would the UV/IR filter work for protection? I have them from my M 8. Thanks
