Hello, All! Have just consolidated 30 years of Rollei, Contax, Tachihara, Canon and Nikon gear into an M8.2, a Summicron 50, an Elmarit 28 and a Preorder on an M. My first trip with the 8.2 has given me confidence my 2 years of soul searching has resulted in the right decision, but also reminds me I have new learning curves to conquer. With the equipment choice made, I have the workflow issues to decide and can surely use some experieinced guidance. I'm an iMac user who has defaulted to iPhoto and Aperture in the past for convenience, but feel the time has come to make a considered choice for the long term organization and interpretation of my files. Any advice on how to begin properly with DNG files will be gratefully received. I've already enjoyed the Old Glass thread and sampled many others which have enlarged my knowledge of the new world Leica equipment is unfolding to me. Looking forward to our future exchanges!
. . . compare to those of the M (240) or ME? I'm thinking of selling my R9/DMR and R lenses in order to finance a T or an ME. I would like a lighter outfit for traveling and just for having a camera with me more often. I would like to be able to use my M lenses digitally. And I would like to be able to take night-scapes with stars, so I'm thinking the M (240) might be less desirable, with its 8 sec. exposure limit at higher ISOs. I have an X2 and assume that the T's files will look much the same (if that is a false assumption, please set me straight). They do not have the color saturation (bit depth?) of the DMR files, nor perhaps the inherent acutance (can I use that term with digital?) but I can live with them as they are quite nice nonetheless, and even give slightly more detail than those from the DMR. For me the Ms are the unknowns. Can anyone comment on how the T DNG files compare to those of the ME or M (240) in terms of color, noise, and sharpness? All help is appreciated. Brent
