  6. My goodness I thought Thorsten was a bit of a creepy snake oil salesman but never knew Huff was such a loon. I’d always been slightly fond of his over exuberant posts about cameras, and to be fair despite the narcissism usually quite like Thorsten’s photography reviews. Does Huff say which mirrorless system is best for communicating with the dead?
  7. It was just there, then the question was where to stand to take the photo

  12. Yes. Returned the 7artisans and bought the Haoge Macro Focus Lens Mount Adapter instead - works perfectly

  14. And thank you for your advice on the GR III. Being quite a 28 guy (on some days, at least) I am looking forward to it.
  15. I agree with that (not that I do enough hiking I am afraid). Each camera has its strengths - I'm pleased to say - so I don't feel it was a waste of money buying the fpL - and for what it is it is very good value. I just prefer the SL2-S to use, and for most, but not all, things. If I was going to use a tripod to photograph the moon, for instance, I would use the fpL because the 60mp resolution gives me so much more cropping facility it would be like having a 3x telephoto extender on the SL2-S, without losing any light.
  16. Sure. I explained some of it in this last blog post: https://www.blogger.com/blog/post/edit/1383094986304741224/3041415016625884525. Basically it is about usability/functionality rather than image quality. I don't think there is much between the fpL, the S5 of the SL2-S in terms of image quality. They are all superb, and the fpL has the advantage of 60-mp if you want that. But I just found shooting with the SL2-S much easier and more enjoyable. It's a combination of (1) the amazing viewfinder, which is so easy to see and focus with, (2) the size and shape in the hand and (3) the easy, ba
  17. Hello everyone, I just published a blog post about some Modernist architecture I have been photographing recently, based round the two great Wells Coates buildings in England, Isokon and Embassy Court. If you are interested in that kind of thing, please take a look here: MODARK. I shall post a couple of the photos (nearly all taken with Leiac SL2-S or M Monochro), below. Thanks Nick
  18. Thanks very much Wally. I shall do that. Nick

  22. Having bought the fpL and S5, and liked them both, especially for low weight, as you have seen I ended up getting the SL2-S and fund it so much nicer to use it’s now the one I reach for. I can’t say I regret getting the other cameras, I’m sure I will still use them a d I wouldn’t know they were not perfect for me without using them, but if I had the time again I would go straight for the SL2-S
