Hi all, I have had an SL with 24-90 for 18 months. Lovely IQ but heavy combination so been using a couple of Zeiss ZM lenses (35/1.4 and just got the 50/2). Enjoy manual focus on the SL and the EVF is great....although it is still clearly an electronic VF, not optical The decision to go with the SL was difficult - I was torn between the SL or an M. At that point I had a full range of Fuji gear but wanted my first full frame digital and had always wanted a Leica. It really was a head vs heart debate - my head questioning the viability of a rangefinder mechanism today etc. Anyway....I am once again considering an M. Tried the M10 pre Xmas and produced some very pleasing images, with crisp focus. I am happy staying at 35 and 50mm but a bit concerned about manual focus on the M and (probably a bigger issue), not ‘seeing what you get’ in terms of image as I am used to EVF. The lack of info in the VF concerns me a bit I have come close recently to buying an M10P and 35 summicron but wonder if I am better going for a used M to start with - chance to prove to myself that I can get on ok with it. Could even use my existing ZM lenses initially. So any advice on used Ms pls? Cheapest entry is an M8 but I don’t want to go so cheap that I get an experience that puts me off....so an M240? Other option is to rent one for a week, anyone help me out with recommendation pls (UK)? Thanks everyone.
Hi! Im new to the forum and about to purchase my first Leica camera. I was planning to graduate and buy an M-9, but as my fortune (or misfortune) would have it, I am going back to school for a few more years. Thus, I am in the market for an X1. Ive read a lot about this camera on the internet. Ive sent emails to users. I've even had a test day with its competitor. I have my eyes set on one already, which includes a half gariz case and a brown leica case. I was wondering, now that you have owned this camera for a few years can you comment on how the camera has held up through travel, work, and life?! Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated and I hope to return the favour someday. If it makes any difference, I am most interested in a black X1.
most people regard the version I (M3 goggle or M2) and version IV (pre-ASPH) of 35mm Summicron as the best versions (aside from ASPH). i want to know the difference between the two, esp performance wise. anybody have shots comparing the results? i tried a search here and elsewhere but came up short; no direct comparisons.
