  1. I have been thinking of acquiring a Q2 for a while and am about 90% ready to make that commitment. I see the Q2 as an addition to my Leica system, which at present includes an M4-P, M-P 240 and a handful of lenses. I am pretty well content with my M-P 240 but it does have a couple of shortcomings - shutter noise and not so great ISO range. For print making, I have found that I can get away with somewhere between ISO 800-1600 before noise becomes a problem, depending on a number of variables other than just ISO. The Q2 seems to resolve those two issues, with weather sealing, autofocus, f/1.7 and a big honking sensor thrown in to sweeten the deal. As far as the focal length that some complain about being "stuck with" on the Q2, that is not really a concern to me. Before I made the jump to digital when I got my M240 back in 2013, I had shot with my film MP and 28 Summicron ASPH extensively. The 28 is an excellent all-around focal length IMHO. It is sort of like the 35mm focal length, but requires a bit more of the photographer in terms of thinking, discipline and not being afraid to get close to your subjects; it is also an excellent focal length for travel, documentary and landscape work IMHO. I learned to deal with these issues (thinking, discipline, getting closer to my subjects) when shooting with my MP and 28 'cron, so I won't feel "stuck" or short changed by having only the 28mm focal length lens on the Q2. In thinking about the Q2, this morning I had the thought that absence of the coupled rangefinder mechanism notwithstanding, the Q2 is somewhat of an autofocus counterpart of the M10 in the Leica lineup as a whole. There is no equal to the flagship M10-P in the Leica product lineup (though some of the other digital M cameras come close), but the Q2 seems to have earned its place next to the M-10-P. In looking at my Leica kit as a whole, I can see the Q2 as being an able backup camera to my M-P 240 and an alternative to it as my daily carry camera. I think the Q2 will fulfill those roles with aplomb. I am wondering how the Q2 has fit in to the scheme of things for others who shoot with it and digital M cameras, and if the Q2 has served its purpose well in your photographic endeavors. Also: Is it fairly accurate to think of the Q2 as somewhat of an autofocus counterpart of the M-P 240 or M10-P? Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts and impressions. 😎
  2. I find the level gauge to be an indispensable tool for controlling perspective, when capturing images of buildings, or in street photography. Once you got used to taking pictures with level gauge turned on you find use for it in any setting. Unfortunately I find the level gauge on M10-P rather disappointing and here is why: Level on M240-P is strong, visible at any light and is easy to read. 10-P level in contrast is poor graphic, can't be seen in bright light and worst of all it disappears when you need it most. i.e. when half pressing shutter release button. Let say you want to take meter exposure value from somewhere else in front of you before framing your picture. To save the exposure reading in memory you press and hold the shutter release button but that action removes the level gauge! I have attempted to compare two cameras on attached images that admittedly are not not in good quality but it does the job! Note that the circle in the middle of M10-P images is there due to centre weighted metering that was selected at the time and is not related to the level gauge 240 v 10 looking up RFS 300.pdf 240 v 10 looking down RFS 300.pdf 240 v 10 level RFS 300.pdf 240 v 10 looking up.pdf 240 v 10 looking down.pdf 240 v 10 level view.pdf
  3. I've come across a family of bugs in the M10 and M10-P's registration of 6-bit codes, and hence with the in-camera corrections and metadata coded into the DNG file. It’s a serious issue, because inappropriate in-camera corrections distort the photo, and make the post-processing workflow needlessly complicated. 1. The R-adapter-M has a unique 6-bit code: 110111. When the camera’s “Lens Detection” is set to “Auto,” the camera should always register “R-Adapter-M,” or the last R-lens manually entered under the Lens Detection menu. Instead, when an R-adapter-M with an R lens is mounted, it switches out of “Lens Detection Auto,” and registers the last lens that was manually entered. If that was an R lens, it switches to “Lens Detection Manual R,” which is OK. But if the userI had previously entered an M lens under “Lens Detection Manual M,” the camera switches to “Lens Detection Manual M,” and falsely registers that M lens. This makes no sense. Since the R-Adapter-M has its own 6-bit code, when the camera when set in “Lens Detection Auto,” it should always register an R lens. 2. The Macro-Adapter-M also has a unique 6-bit code, 101000. So when the camera’s “Lens Detection” is set to “Auto,” it should register “Macro-Adapter-M.” Instead, it registers “4/90.” This also makes no sense, for two reasons. First, even though it’s common for the photographer to combine the Macro-Adapter-M with the Macro-Elmar-M 90 f/4, this bug means the photographer has no way of distinguishing a shot taken using the with and without the Macro-Adapter-M. Since the Macro-Adapter-M has its own 6-bit code, this confusion is preventable and unnecessary. Second, since the Macro-Adapter-M can be used with many Leica lenses other than the 4/90, it means that often the wrong lens is corrected for and coded in the DNG metadata. 3. When the camera is set to “Lens Detection Auto,” and an uncoded lens is mounted, the camera registers the last lens that was manually coded, whether it was under “Lens Detection Manual M” or “Lens Detection Manual R.” It’s hard to understand the logic behind this. For one thing, an uncoded lens will always be an M lens, never an R, because an R-lens would always be mounted with the R-Adapter-M, which has its own 6-bit code, which the camera should automatically register. (The only exception is if the photographer uses some 3rd party uncoded R-to-M adapter such as ones by Kipon or Novoflex. But I assume that Leica did not decide to support that possibility.) Worse, if the photographer has several uncoded M or R lenses, then every time he changes among these lenses, the wrong corrections and metadata will be applied to that shot. Of course the photographer always has the option of switching the Lens Detection setting with each lens change to “Lens Detection Manual M” or “R” to register the appropriate lens. But he should not be forced to do that when “Lens Detection” is set to “Auto” and the camera should be smart enough to know automatic lens detection is impossible. I hope that Leica fix this bug and make “Lens Detection Auto” behave in the following ways: -When the Macro-Adapter-M is mounted, the camera should always register “Macro-Adapter-M.” -When the R-Adapter-M is mounted, the camera should always register “R-Adapter-M” (and perhaps the last R lens manually entered.) -When an uncoded lens is mounted, the camera should always register “Uncoded lens.” Simple and logical, no?
  4. Hello, Maybe I missed something but is it possible to disable the touchscreen function in the menu of the Leica M10-P? Thanks in advance, Klassika.
  5. Anlässlich des 100-jährigen Jubiläum der „American Society of Cinematographers“ wird Leica die Sonderedition M10-P “SC 100 Edition“ im kommenden Herbst auf den Markt bringen.

  6. Greets! As attached, an M10-D is now family, with Leica, Zeiss & Cosina/Vöightlander primes. The M10-D is less in focus in the pic as it's so new to me I've read through several threads, including the FAQ's (!, ?), yet no set space on the site for: 1) one/differentiated FAQ, across all variants M10; & no "New to M10" thread. Just an observation, not critique! Okay, that all may present, as developed. First, thanks to Jono, Jaap, Scott & all of you for your perspective(s) & insights with this, yet new model... & some are already opining on an M11... That's investment, engaging, with thanks.... but I digress... as you can see, I'm moving in a 4,6,8,10 M-progression Despite its foibles, and "klunk,whirr,hiss" of a shutter (avoiding the anti-alias filter, um, "quality"), my M8 permitted me to adjust White Balance (WB) in degrees Kelvin such that I could set presets, & then further tweak/adjust in the menu: not so I've found in the FOTOS app. Not an issue with film: films are fixed in this regard, as we all know. The pic of my late father, zone focus, M8, Leica 24/2,8 ASPH, 3200 K WB... an SLR shooter, one may see the surprise/repose in is expression: "What?" As a parent, I often have that same expression Thanks for any insights on WB outside FOTOS presets. in multi-envisioned, Dave
  7. I have successfully install the Foto app on my iPhone. I connected my M10-P to it and downloaded a couple of test photos. I also loaded a photo directly from the camera into Lightroom CC without storing it in my camera roll. The above was done during the first session with Foto. I've tried to use the app again today this time the app keeps showing "Couldn't connect' Check camera Wi-Fi is on. The camera shows the Wi-fi running with the WLAN label containing the camera serial number as previous. WiFi on the phone is on. Have I missed something or is this a bug???? I've tried re-scanning the Q bar code and the resulting set up looks to be the same but still with no success. Any suggestions? Regards, Les
