As background, some years ago Leica produced a collectable M9 Titan, all titanium including the 35mm 'lux. Part of the kit that came with it was a very nice holster and also three sizes of finger loops. These finger loops attached directly to the side of the M9. The combination worked superbly. Now, to get the same functionality with an M10 you need to buy a hand grip ($us415) plus a finger loop ($us135 each). $us650 just to get the finger loop function when it was designed into the M9 years ago, without having to fit a new bottom on the camera. See https://www.kenrockwell.com/leica/m9/titanium.htm to see the attached finger loop. The current offering is clunky and unnecessarily complex. Leica where are you? When can we see that M9 Titan finger loop on an M10 or M11? btw the holster with the M9 Titan looked and worked well, except for no top strap. It meant that if one bent over too far the camera fell out. I notice that newer holsters have such a strap, though it slows down a quick draw. The guy with the Titan will shoot first. Meanwhile, does any third party make finger loops that attach direct to the M10? The Wotancraft wrist strap is close, but not good enough.
I find the Q uncomfortable to shoot one-handed even with the hand grip. I am a street photographer and often shoot holding the flash off-camera in my left hand. I am considering trying the finger loop. Not living close to a Leica dealer, I would have to order the loop but don't have any clue as to the correct size. Do you guys have any thoughts about choosing the proper size loop? If it helps, I am 5'7" and, subjectively speaking, have average size hands. (I know that the Thumbs Up would allow the Q to be held one-handed, but that would cover the hot shoe which I need for the wireless flash trigger.) Thanks.
