  1. One from today A quick grab shot with the Q2.
  2. UPDATE, I just received my Q2 back from Leica USA in New Jersey. It was only about a 10 day turn around. I mentioned that I had a trip coming up, and they rushed it. Great people to work with, one of the best customer service groups I've encountered. They said that while finding nothing obvious, they inspected, cleaned, and adjusted the camera, and also listed a new skin/cover installed, as it needs to come off for the process. Maybe just me, but it seems to be a bit quicker to focus, and frames look great. The camera was returned via UPS overnight/next day delivery, before 11 A.M. Int
  3. Will do. Did some macro testing yesterday, using some flowers, at first glance they look fine, but at 100%/cropping, the edges just aren't there. Waiting to talk to a human at Leica, NJ for a RMA, then, off it goes.
  4. Thanks for the replies. I did find one person that had this done, in fact, here is the items listed on his return paperwork from Leica repair; -replace EVF -cleaned sensor - adjust auto focus -adjust sensor/out of tolerance -new sensor sealing -new back leather covering -check, adjust, clean So, with that, mine is heading to a repair depot for some "fine tuning"
  5. I've been in this business most of my life, and with most systems, there are hits, and there are misses. It seems that i am seeing a lot of the misses with my Q2. Probably me, (I'm in my 70's, eyesight isn't what it used to be!) but in the past, I have had several cameras that needed to be sent in for focus checks and adjustment. Is this a "thing" with the Q' cameras? If anyone has sent one in and actually saw an improvement, I'd like to hear about the process. I know there is an excellent Leica repair service in Chicago, but before I try that route, I'd love to know if I'm on the rig
  6. Mine is a Q2 and iPhone 12. I tend to leave all of the other bodies and lenses at home. Works out most of the time.
  7. Thanks for all of the suggestions! I'm sure I'll find one that works for me.
  8. Reason is a combination of neuropathy and arthritis, the more positive/prominent the button is, the easier to hit.
  9. Does anyone know if the shutter release on the Q2 is removable ? I remember that I had a soft release button on my Q, but that is long gone. I bought it used, and I think it was on there when i got it. I'd like to put one on my Q2, but don't know if it is possible to unscrew the factory button or not. I don't want to damage anything, so, I thought I'd go to the neighborhood to look for answers. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  10. Does anyone know it the factory release button is removable? I have been a fan of the soft release buttons for years, and had them on most of my cameras. I think I had one on my Q, but that is gone, and I can't seem to unscrew the one on my Q2? Normally just damp thumb pressure does the trick, but not this one. Anyone have any first hand experience with removal?? Thanks
  11. I tend to ask myself, would I hang this print? This one is a big YES! Good one!
  12. It's great to see the art being carried on by another generation. Well done!
  13. I'm guessing it is a Q/Q2 type base. Battery is it's own base, and small door for the card??
  14. Kind of hard to tell from the screen shot, but when magnified, in the post, it may actually be a bit over sharpened. At least it looks that way, looking at the center group of trees. Not criticizing, just an observation. A look at 100% of the center may tell a different story. Nice photo.
