  1. I looked up my order for the Safari Green olive shade I ordered my Leica Q. It looks like I waited a month after the initial order to contact the online shop for shipment info. Zip, no reply. I paid with Paypal, so I opened a non-reciept case with Paypal. Seven days later I got shipping information from Hong Kong, So, maybe if you paid with Paypal, opening a case MAY get their attention?
  2. Huh, I do have the RF 50 1.8 STM that I use for video only. Comparisons to the 28-70 vs. the 50mm 1.8 in still photos just don't stand up, but these are only vacation pics. Maybe I'll carry this combo around a while and see how I like the weight. Thanks for the suggestion. Yeah, I'looked as the SL2 on and off for a couple of years now...
  3. Lol. I have the 28-70 f/2 on the R5 as my only lens. The combo is way too heavy for me to carry around for walking & travel. I put up with it for work but I don't really enjoy the camera.
  4. Hi, I read all the Q2 vs. Q2 M threads, but am really no closer to a decision. In 2019, just before the pandemic, I bought a Q to take with me on my first trip to Italy. Loved it but sold it during the pandemic. MIssed the Leica experience, so I eventually bought a Q2M that I use for "home" or "street" photos (I use a Canon R5 for journalistic work) and consider my "art" camera. I will be returning to Italy in late November for essentially a vacation for 9 days. I went to price out a Q2 rental, which was about $555 for those days. I don't really want to take both cameras with me, I hate t
  5. I too have the Arte Di Mano with the battery and card access. The SD card is harder to take out than without a case at all, the ADM case adds about 1/4" to the bottom. The Lim's case was deeper I thought. Does the MegaGear case "deepen" the hole, so to speak, for the SD access door also? You know, the best bet might be just the Leica handgrip. I thought it would be a pain in the butt to take it off all the time for the card and battery access, but I found that I didn't mind it so much. It's easy to come on and off. And the battery lasts much longer than the original Q, so I only ended up
  6. @gteague I know what you mean, I have at least three bags from my Q ownership days and I still look around for my Q2. Anyway, do you use a handgrip or Lim's case with your Q2?Or is the bag fit with just the Q2?
  7. Very nice @docmoore was this shot with a green filter?
  8. I owned a Sony a9 and was looking for a travel camera. I bought the X100F and pre-trip I loved it for having in the car and taking silly pictures with friends at bars etc. I also enjoyed the film simulations and that hybrid EVF. Then on a lark, I decided to rent the Leica Q and after my first round with that camera, I sold my X100F and bought a Q. For me, the quality of the pictures the Q produces has no comparison to the X100. I couldn't get over, even in sloppily taken shots, how good (exposure, autofocus) the shots were. I felt like I had a better keeper rate with the Q. I didn't like
  9. Can't help feeling that their might have been a better framing/angle for this picture...
  10. IT does look sharp. Thanks for the picture.
  11. @mth @luetz Damn, I was hoping it would take care of that. I've heard the OEM Leica handgrip will hold the camera upright without the tilt. Maybe still gotta use the lenscap under the lens then...
  12. Thanks @Kreeshp, I'll be using it on a Monochrom also.
  13. Does this combination allow the Q2 to sit horizontally level on a flat surface (i.e., without the dreaded lens "dip"/front of the lens touching the table)?
  14. Man, my condolences. Hopefully, maybe insurance or homeowener's policy might cover some of it? If not, you may be able to get a few bucks on ebay for a dead one. I fell on my Canon 80D with the flash in the hotshoe and the flash went into the prism top of the camera and left a big hole where the flash she used to sit. Flash was fine, camera was not. Ended up selling it like that on ebay with the charger and the battery for almost $200. It's worth a try if you ebay.
