  1. So, I will update my initial post with the suggestions posted so far: Bug Fixes 1. Folder renaming after firmware update, i.e. image numbering should continue from the last one taken/named instead of reverting to the beginning and having to jump through hoops to reset... 2. ... Features 1. Digital Zoom implementation (yes, I know I have mentioned it before...) - give users the option to use the frame lines or the magnification of the image of 35, 50 or 75 mm to fill the screen. 2. Perspective control a la M series, nothing more to add here! 3. Real behavior B
  2. I agree with you on the simplicity argument. That is the reason I sold all my gear and opted for the Q2. However, the specific feature is not something extra, but rather a different implementation of a pre-existing feature, i.e. the digital zoom. So, while I do desire simplicity as much as you, I still maintain that implementing it differently (or giving the option to do so) is a good thing. Again, not everyone has to agree with all the features mentioned here; let's just say that it is an aggregate wish list and Santa Claus Leica can chose what to bring us and what not;)
  3. Believe me, I see your point, but, as you may appreciate, cameras have to be able to cater to photographers of varying degrees of proficiency. As it is, they do offer several options in order to facilitate creativity (I guess), one more option couldn't hurt. Personally, I use spot metering, because I believe it is better suited to the style of image I want to produce. Again, ymmv, but we've been there already:)

  5. So, I am updating my initial post with One man's trash, another man's treasure I guess:) The thing is, Leica has offered it on the SL2-S, so, if anything, it is easy to offer it on the Q2/M as well. Whether it is useful or not, is up to each photographer. I see your point, but there are situations where this could be the way to go without having to use the histogram (a lot of people don't really get how it works). Of course ymmv:)
  6. Actually, this feature (Highlight-weighted metering) was just offered on the SL2-S firmware update 2.0, so you may have point there. According to RDF: "We've long espoused the virtues of exposing for the highlights, but this has involved using highlight clipping warnings, test shots and frequent use of exposure compensations. But now, Leica has added a new metering mode into the SL2-S. When shooting in Highlight-Weighted mode, the camera will evaluate the full scene off the sensor and set the exposure to the brightest point in the image. This is an amazing addition and will be a huge time
  7. Question to the group: Is there any value in creating a topic where we put all our suggestions for upcoming firmware updates? There seem to be some fixes that are warranted and some features that we'd like to see on the Q2. We could have a running list, so that it would be easier for everyone (including Leica) to track, along with the rationale for them (possibly?). If members think this is helpful, let me start by putting few of my own here, just to sum start the process. If not, oh well, you win some, you lose some:) Bug Fixes 1.

  8. Works as advertised but connection could be easier and more intuitive. It's not, but oh well:)
  9. It must be some setting causing this. Mines performs as expected after the update. Haven't seen lag reported anywhere else either.
  10. Nothing has changed. Even when you are looking through the EVF and the back monitor is dark, double-tapping it will return the focus point (spot or other) to the center.
  11. The "whatever" option on the menu would be essentially to offer users the option to choose their preferred implementation then? Or that they don't care either way? I think the poll should ask whether being given the option is desirable or not? I am not arguing for doing away with the existing option, as I understand that it suits some people and it is a heritage issue, albeit a gimmicky one since the Q/Q2 is not a r/f...:)
  12. A poll would be a great idea. How do we go about it - not sure. I would be willing to write the arguments for the proposed implementation and someone would have to do the same for the existing implementation. I am not so sure that most users prefer the frame lines and I don't know how you infer this. If anything, most users could/should prefer to have the option (because options are nice, right?) or even have the other implementation only, as it makes the feature usable at 50 and definitely at 75 mm. But we are only guessing here... Those coming from the M (how many are they, since the Q
  13. I guess we are all different. For me, composition is in the center of photography. Just because I have the tech to not get it right on camera, it doesn't mean that I will slack off and not try it:) Back in the day of analog (when I started shooting back in 1980) you absolutely had to compose right, otherwise the image was trash. Of course, if you are only using the Q2 at 28, this whole discussion is irrelevant to you:) Personally, I prefer the 35 mm FoV, so I would very much like to use it without the frame lines. I shoot with my left eye, while my right one stays open, so I know what is in, o
  14. I had the X100F and I hardly ever used the OVF. I found the EVF to offer a lot more in terms of facilitation of the whole process, including the zooming in option of the digital zoom. I see why those coming from the M or other r/f find this familiar, but (a) i am not so sure that there are a lot of Q/Q2 owners coming from the M - it's probably vice versa as the Q/Q2 is considered an entry point to the mark and (b) if it is offered as an option, it makes the camera appealing to a larger audience and in conjunction with the entry-point argument, it also makes financial sense for them.
