  1. Yes, here: https://www.balticoptics.lv/kameras/foto/m-sistema/product/leica-m10-p-reporter-3.html And discounted. You're welcome 😀
  2. There is no contest here: the M10-M is king of the lowlight world IMHO. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how well the M10-R performed. Its colours look also much more natural to my eye
  3. The M11 files look more contrasty to me. Not an advantage in my book

    I love my M11.

    An already well used M11 😇😁😉....
  5. My only concern is that they are mostly useless for most of my photography, and I daresay, for most of the photography users of this forum do. Most of us are not professionals working in the fashion/advertising industry. We're people taking photos of our cats and backyards (especially in the pandemic). While I respect Leica's decision to get involved in the megapixel race, a sensor like that found in the Sl2-S would've given us everything we need.
  6. The M10 had also a nominal max ISO of 50.000 but was unusable above 6400. Not to mention the advertised base ISO of 100
  7. I'm surprised no one has asked about high ISO. Is it usable at ISO 12500? How much improvement over the M10?
  8. Very nice photos, Steven! The low-saturation film+lens combo worked very well here....
  9. Nice....Pity that Leica didn't make a single M10/M10-P in black paint....
  10. I was a little too frugal with my first reply. The correct answer is 35*3, 50* 2.
  11. M-D (Typ 262) and this time Summicron 8 elements.
  12. I had both lenses for quite some time. The pre-asph Lux was a Titanium one. It was very soft at 1.4 and glowed a lot, however at f2 it was very sharp, comparable to by FLE. From 2.8 onwards it had, however, a small focus-shift and at 2.8 and 4 it was slightly less sharp than at f2. My copy was perfectly calibrated. Contrast was much higher than the 8 elements, but colours were rendered very accurately. The 8 elements is softer than the pre-asph Lux at f2, with some glow, but very usable wide-open. I feel that for portraits it gives them a nice vintage feeling, but significantly sharper than the pre-asph Lux wide open. From 2.8 onwards it is much sharper than the pre-asph Lux and shows absolutely no focus-shift. Colours have a lower saturation maybe due to the fact that contrast is quite low. The fact that this lens can show up shadow detail that others can't is very much true and is a consequence of the combination of high-resolution and low-contrast, a feature it shares with the Type 2 Rigid Summicron from the same era. I feel that these low-contrast/high-resolution lenses shine particularly on digital sensors and B&W film. For colour film, higher contrast lenses give nicer results. The fact that the Summicron could be focused at 70 cm and could use a screw-on filter (I use my lenses without a hood) sealed the deal for me.
