  1. I think if you are new to M/manual focusing and want to start with zone techniques, it's good to understand for a certain aperture and distance, what you might expect to have in focus - at least until you've shot a few hundred images and get the feel for it.
  2. Hi, Do you still have the Leica 1.25x magnifier? I'm in Wellington and would be keen to acquire if it's still available. PM me on IG @bokehstreet Alan
  3. True, but they are there for those that want to use them, so why not make them a little easier to use?
  4. Been shooting with the Q2 for about a year and had an idea to improve the usefulness of the digital crop feature.. What if instead of maintaining the 28mm frame view as you cycled through the 35, 50 and 75mm crops, the frame view increased slightly to display as 35mm for the 50 crop and 50mm for the 75 crop.. See illustration below - does anyone think this is doable in a firmware upgrade? Alan

  6. Practicing low-light portraits at home during our lock-down in NZ. Q2 - 1/60th ISO100 f1.7 edited in LR. www.bokehstreet.com Stay safe everyone !
  7. Ahh.. Continuous, yes. Thanks so much LG !
  8. I have 'Self-Timer' assigned to my FN button, but when I hold down to initiate, nothing happens? In the general menu, self-timer is grayed out for some reason?
  9. Same, I have a Q2 and a Fuji with 56mm f1.2 (85mm Equiv) for portraits.. Would love a second Leica, but unsure about manually focusing an M with say a 90mm at low f-stops..
  10. You have to set AF Mode to 'Field' not 'Spot'
  11. I'll be keeping my 56mm f1.2 FUJI X-T20 combo (85mm equivalent FF) to compliment the shorter fields of view offered by the Q2 that I'll be picking up next week. This will give me two superb compact bodies with providing 28, 35, 50 (Q2 with cropping) & 85mm. Should cover 95% of my needs.
  12. Went to Photo Warehouse in NZ, initially looking at the Q-P as there were obviously no Q2s to hold. Was tempted due to waiting times, but they are still full price here. PW wanted full payment for a Q2 order with no idea of delivery date.. When I queried why would I buy Q-P over Q2, grumpy sales guy said, "You wouldn't" Rang Pro Gear and they said $500 down, 12 week wait - which gave me a glimmer of hope. 4 weeks later Boom! Got the call, 5 had arrived..
