  1. I was in NYC today. I stopped into the Leica SoHo store to speak with owner, Eli. He had a black M11 on display. I got a change to play with it and the new Visoflex2. It seems very impressive. The shutter is very quiet. With the new Visioflex2, it seems more responsive than the Visoflex on my M11R. I'm on the list for a black one in the next shipment, hopefully, in the new few seeks.

  2. Any one have experience processing M11 DNG files with Capture One Pro 22? Regards, Bud James Please check out my fine art and travel photography at www.budjames.photography.
  3. My only complaint is that I haven't got mine yet! 😁 Regards, Bud James Please check out my fine art and travel photography at www.budjames.photography.
  4. Another great review. I have mine on order. Thanks. Regards, Bud James Please check out my fine art and travel photography at www.budjames.photography.
  5. I was excited to view this post as I have a black M11 on order. I realize that most of the images posted here are test shots, however, mostly all seem soft and lacking the detail that I would expect to see. These could have been taken with any camera costing way less than a Leica. I'm hoping that the image size posting limitation of this website is the culprit.

  6. As it relates to justifying spending big bucks on Leica gear, add to that list, "Buy once, cry once!" Regards, Bud James Please check out my fine art and travel photography at www.budjames.photography.
  7. And, catch Covid too, unfortunately. In the US, I just got my Pfizer booster shot yesterday. The nurse who gave it to me suggested that I wear a mask all the time, even outdoors, and avoid crowds. So, what’s the point of the vaccine again? I’m confused.

  8. I’m already on the wait list at my Leica store. Regards, Bud James Please check out my fine art and travel photography at www.budjames.photography or on Instagram at www.instagram.com/budjamesphoto. .
  9. I have the APO Summicron 35mm. I traded in the non-APO, but still current, version of the Summicon 35 on the APO version. The APO Summicron 35 is my favorite and most used lens. The APO Summicon 50 is my second favorite and most used lens. These two lenses and my M10-R are my complete travel kit. When we start traveling to European cities, I will also bring my WATE 16-18-21 for interiors and city shooting. All of this fits nicely in my well-traveled Billingham Hadley Pro 2020 bag.

  10. All are the currently availsble versions. Regards, Bud James Please check out my fine art and travel photography at www.budjames.photography or on Instagram at www.instagram.com/budjamesphoto
  11. I have the M10-R since it was released. I love it! I still have my M10, factory converted to an M10-P, but the M10-R is goto. I pondered the idea of buying the M10-R Monochrom, but decided against it. One was the cost, but more importantly, I would have anxiety about having only a Monochrom which precludes the color option. The M10-R allows me the freedom to shoot color or B&W on the fly. I typically don’t shoot on the fringe where the ultra-high ISO of the Monochrom would be needed. Also, the idea of having to use colored filters on the lens is a step backwards for me. That said, I I’ve reading about others’ experiences shooting a Monochrom.

  12. I used many different brands and types of bags over the years, but for a shoulder bag, I love the Billingham Hadley Pro and Hadley Pro Small. They look great, will last forever, weatherproof, and doesn’t scream expensive gear inside. Also, No Velcro! if you want to add some extra storage to either of these bags, Billingham sells the Avea side pockets in two sizes which attach to each end of the bag. I use these for extra carryon space when I travel and I can leave them in the hotel room when I’m out and about. For my SL2, I have the Billingham Hadley One. It’s the same deign as the Hadley Pro, but larger in every dimension. The same Avea pockets can be attached to this bag too. Regards, Bud James
  13. I'm a managing director and partner in a wealth management business. We have 5 offices and the one that I call mine is in a building that I own directly across the street from the Mercer Museum on Green Street. We are located in the borough and I own a parking lot with 10 spots. My office is s doors down from Main Street. If you ever tried to park in the borough where most of the restaurants are located, you can appreciate the benefit of owning a parking lot that is only a few blocks away from the center of town.

  14. I live about 30 miles outside the city in North Wales, PA. We love the Reading Terminal. Bieler's donuts are the best! Here are a few images shot with my M10 and Summilux 35mm ASPH FLE and processed in Capture One Pro 21.
